    I sense a the green eyed monster in this post

    Well your wrong, if you read the 'commonwealth' document on short prose you will find that she actually met an Etonian. Flew half way across the world for a 30 min interview. That is dedication.

    I always try to blame my lack of success on the fact the females of Oxford tend to be rather frigid, now I know where I go wrong.

    Hehe, anyone feel like correcting her on the "The Duke of Wellington once said that the FA Cup was played on the emerald playing fields of Eton, and indeed it was so" comment?

    I was under the impression that it was the Battle of Waterloo that was "won on the playing fields of Eton" - somewhat more important than an FA cup! As far as I am aware, the FA cup had not begun when Wellington (the famous one) was around.

    Also, what is this guy doing still taking exams if he's 19? And what hideous social climbers his parents are :eek:

    i was about to say! Association football rules were only fixed in the late 19th century (80s or 90s), so the Duke of Wellington must have been very good to predict an 'FA cup', and the fact that Eton would win it

    who's this 19 year old guy you speak of, Helenia?

    Btw, where exactly is this 'chinese crap' you speak of? Perhaps your mind is wandering again, like when you met the fine Etonian, Nicholas Knatchbull in the Alps, yes?

    No dear, Meerkat got exposed, this girl is obsessed with Eton and hails from the other side of the planet, this web site is quite disturbing in an overly obsessed kind of way (read the short prose, Alps, the truth and commenwelth and the look at photos):

    http://www.freewebs.com/meerkitty/about.htm
    What's wrong with being on the other side of the planet?

    Oh and my brother goes to Cambridge, you might meet him when you get there. *sparkle*
