For me, Blue and their ilk go in the 'Cheesy' box. Blech.
Blue, S Club (both varieties), Kylie, Britney... in fact, much of the charts these days. Including the dreaded Cha Cha song.

Is that the one about pushing a pineapple and shaking a tree? Because I hate that song. It is the Cheese National Anthem
Nope, that's Agadoo (sic?). But yes, that one is the #1 Most Cheesiest Song Ever. The Cha Cha Song is more recent - it was #1 in the charts just last week I think (or possibly the week before), where it's just a list of commands:

"Three hops this time"
"Charlie Brown"
"Reverse, reverse"
"Five hops this time"
"Slide to the left"
"Slide to the right"
etc.

I somehow missed out on that one. Lucky, since I am musically lactose intolerant. I don't like it when songs try to force movements on me, fascist *******s. I go with the flow, dude.
lol @---> "fascist *******s"

I'm not sure about gowns for the Collingwood dinner, but I think everyone goes to the Cathedral wearing gowns and pledges allegiance to the University, in some sort of pagan animal sacrifice... Ok, so maybe the last part is fictitious.
That's the matriculation ceremony.

Does anyone els ethink that the open days "seduce" people a bit?
I mean if no othe runi gives you the opportunity to stay over aren't you naturally going to be biased towards them?
Lol seducing! that is so true. If all unis did that then im sure fewer would choose durham. Staying over is the best way to sample uni life though. It doe show durham are investing time and money n getting you to go there

Ya think the robe thing is wierd...you should experience the 'spooning' attempts by Hatfield! I have to admit, even I was worried...and deafened

Welcome, Laces. Join the induction bar crawl? And what the hell is spooning, lol?
Thank Ye Sir Damn straight i'm up for a bar crawl- when I went to the open day I got quite tipsy on the college bar prices and would not mind experiencing the likes of the DSU and cheesy cheesy Klute again!

What course are you doing interiority? sorry if you've already said this a billion times but I skimmed the 7 pages and couldn't see...Is it your firm?

presebjenada (sp?) Were you at the Hatfield open day and do you study law? Which one were you at? 22/23 or 23/24? I may know you...

Spooning....lol...was a strange Hatfield tradition...sort of included a chant and banging your dinner spoon on the table! Very strange, but good fun. Yes, i know, I am a Hatfielder...but i'm nice, i promise

sorry ma'am

I don't mind the hate...I quite like the banter. I'll take it with a pinch of salt

There is quite a Durham crowd on the board..iv'e counted 4 law students with Durham as their firm. Excellent choice
