    They've got a photo on their profile. I assume they're the one in the middle.

    He came to a trampolining session, and I've been added email addresses to the mailing list - once you know his surname, it's pretty easy to work out who he is TSR wise.

    Ah, the one with the suggestively placed bottle of water, no I haven't met him. Ah well.

    Oh dear, I have to say I lol'd at that :o:

    OUCS are clearly bored today, they answered my emails in record time! And they're always so nice - I don't want to go back in to the real world and deal with the horrible IT/admin staff you seem to get elsewhere

    The houses where I'm living, Lincoln accommodation on High Street, used to have little worktops with sinks and fridges, that others used to use as kitchens. Downstairs, there's a little alcove, where you can fit a couple of chairs and maybe a coffee table. We dreamed of a future utopia, where we'd turn the downstairs into a bar, and live in it.

    When we arrived, they'd locked up the worktops. Health and safety, they said: if something caught on fire, then there might be danger (this is an argument against unlocking anything, ever). There's just a sink, and a fridge. Recorded incidents of sink fires are hard to find, but they still kept them locked. So maybe we could put the bar in the alcove... but no. Because when we arrived, the complex was being renovated, and they'd decided to use our downstairs area to store around eighty sets of old curtains, of varying sizes, colours, and smells, that they'd torn down from other rooms. If you've never seen a decent curtain-pile before you die, do. It stretched about four feet high, and covered the area of an average college bed.

    We got a bit pissed off with this a couple of days back - no-one had come to move them - so we moved the pile outside ourselves, and in its place put an armchair and coffee table from my room, and my fridge. This worked great - except the next day the curtains were back, put ON TOP of the coffee table and fridge, with a note from the scouts reading "please leave thease [sic] here".

    I think someone must have gone to complain again, so this morning, the curtains are gone. But it seems that scouts' minds work in binary, as also gone are the armchair, the table, and MY ******* FRIDGE. Yeah, because it's a two-way choice - either you live with no possessions, or a four-bleedin'-foot high pile of curtains. This being after 11am, the scouts have all gone home. It being Friday, they'll be gone for the weekend. I'm down a fridge and my dreams.

    In short, college bureaucrats are morons, and I can't find names for scouts that I wouldn't get rusticated for. I reckon they're actually pure, concentrated evil. I got up at 7 this morning, and looked in the bathroom mirror. I looked away, looked back, and there was a scout in front of it. They're like the statues in Blink, except if they go near you, they'll just send your living standards back to the 1500s. Until you're dead. "[/rant]"

    I walked by 2 + 2 = 5 on the union stairs yesterday. I'm slowly stalking up tsr...
    I'm vaguely intrigued as to how you met a Hilda's language boy?
    Was he hot? Cos I've had zero luck with men since I got here and I'm getting kind of desperate.

    Christ, of course he isn't. That's why he was at the Union. Otherwise I'd be at home having "sex" with these "chicks" I keep hearing about.

    It was more of a "what? Why am I still dressed?" get-up.

    The hot/union thing did cross my mind to be honest. I figured only weird, paloured freak-creatures went to the union but I wanted to be sure.

    Yes, I've finally finished my write up of the summer. Padded with images, because I should probably have written another 400 words.

    Only two essays to do in the next two days now...

    I'm still having trouble with mine - the introduction is a nightmare. There's a fantastic review article that covers all of the points I need to make. I'm considering just citing the entire thing as my intro...

    I just gave an overview of what the project does as a whole, and then my little part of it, as an intro. Seemed a natural way in.
