    That's what we have as well (though I only have my three tutors there, plus the Senior Tutor). Luckily our Provost is seriously cool and these days just tends to talk about the termly concert, so it's not too bad
    This is a wild stab in the dark - but you're at Worcester right? Is your provost Robert Saxton?

    It's times like these that I'm really glad I'm at Wadham, and that we don't bother with this stuff. I've only been to one Warden's collection all the time I've been here, the time I couldn't go (it clashed with a lecture), no one bothered to reschedule it.
    President's collections on Friday afternoon - gowning up and going and being told I haven't worked hard enough this term. Eugh.

    That has suddenly become more tempting now that I have a job and have no need of further references and don't really need to do anymore tutorials, but in the end the acrimony is simply not worth the 15 minutes it would save me.

    Robert Saxton's an absolute legend. I used to work at the Music Faculty (in my gap year) and he knew i was really unhappy there and I would come in in the morning and find coffee and croissants on my desk from Cafe Loco from him!

    I love how at Oxford, it's perfectly acceptable to discuss in tutorials (hypothetically) putting children in boxes and depriving them of language/morals/emotional development, to see what the results would be...

    ok then it's settled.

    I feel really bad about going out drinking and clubbing tonight because I just watched this thing about a 13 year old evangelical christian
    Really? I'm now watching it and thinking how scary she is, and what a shame it is that someone so obviously clever and articulate is being home-schooled. The bit about belonging to your father til he gives you away in marriage? Also creepy.

    It's probably just because I know I'm a terrible terrible person. All I ever do is sin.

    I've started watching this program and it's making me twitchy with a combination of anger and horror.

    I could actually feel my blood pressure go up when they got onto the Creationist stuff. But that's always a good way to make me twitchy.

    "I love science! I collect science textbooks! But the scientists are lying to you about the age of the world! About dinosaurs!"

    *develops facial twitch*

    The older son saying that when women flirt with him he finds it disgusting and runs away.

    *facial twitch grows*

    "My children don't need A levels or certificates to get into university."

    That got me. Her son is really clever, but he's at college in Buxton, because they'd take him on a vocational course without qualifications - if he were at a big university, he might have friends who offend his sensibilities less.

    Also: "Dinosaurs lived in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve!" :toofunny:
