    Ugh, I have no idea what Machiavellian scheme St John's used to get an obvious bump overturned (well, appealing it after the deadline for appeals once all the witnesses had gone, for a start), but frankly I think they should take their Karl Rove-esque genius into politics.
    Why did the judges not just tell them 'no' if the deadline had passed? Bribery? I suppose they are the richest college :tongue:

    I have no idea. It is generally accepted by everyone except their coach that they did not bump Hertford and therefore were not out of the race at the time. Apparently, however, Balliol sending them into the bank also does not qualify as a bump.

    Ugh. Rowing. I spent the day returning for JCR elections, where the main poll on whether we should carry on having Sky got invalidated, and now we have to re-poll. Nobody's fault really, just meant a long, long day, for not much return.

    Rate my leet txtspk:

    On a particularly annoying Oxbridge thread some nice fellow was coming along and being rather unpleasant to those members that told the OP to use proper grammar so I composed the following response for him. unfortunately the thread was deleted (of course this was right and proper and I make no complaint). Anyway I can't be sure that my use of his language was sufficiently accurate and so I ask you to check my work and make sure that language skills have not become rusty since I moved to the hallowed halls of Oxford:

    Yh, lik whts ur prblm vn? cummin here n insltng r 1337 OX! Cru lyk! Dis is r hood n u nt welcum here so gtfo. Booyakasha!!1!11 els il gt me homies on u cos i is hardcor innit

    Many thanks.

    I can sympathise. Right. Now I shall go shopping so I don't die of malnutrition, then finally do some laundry. Then do all my reading.

    On a more interesting note, how fun is the steam that comes out of New College on Holywell? It always smells like laundry! Mmm.

    Ditto that. I came back here to go to the library. So, naturally, I'm sitting at my desk eating a banana and watching Doctor Who.

    I'm going to put my shoes on and buy food, otherwise I'll spend another weekend eating whatever's left in my food store. At the moment, that's cheesy M&S crackers, and blackcurrant jam.

    I also ran into my tutor from last term yesterday. He wants to have a meeting about why I didn't hand in some essays LAST TERM. I knew I should have hidden.

    I just found out that my college daughter also applied for my PhD at Bristol... We only realised because she received a letter address to Bekaboo and mentioned it to my tutor who said it was funny because he had written me a reference too...

    I hate the randomness of my Friday nights. Sometimes we all pub after work and pub turns into dinner, and then cocktails. Sometimes by half 6 everyone wants to go off home. Grrr
    I so agree with this. I want to have a Friday night tradition, something I can look forward to and use an an excuse to have to leave on (semi) time, and preferably for that tradition to involve nice food and drink.
