    I'll be thinking of you lot, schussing and skiing away... while I'm back in Camb, with a pile of work to do and no-one else around... boo shame.
    I think by "schussing and skiing away" you mean "sliding down hills on your arse while small French children run over you." I've only ever had 3 lessons before Loads of my friends are insanely good too, so I doubt I'll be seeing much of them.

    Well, I've never skiied before in my life... at least you've had lessons! Anyway, don'tmost people go for the apres-ski... erm... antics? Clareifornication would be out of business in the first week back if it weren't for Ski Clare. Oh, and the back issues are online. Clare people, be afraid!

    Anyway, you can console yourselves by knowing that no matter how bad you are, I'm doubtlessly worse! Come on, I nearly managed to capsize a punt full of CUSAGC'ers- can you imagine me skiing! And a freind of mine has invited me to Switzerland... I'm so going to either die or get into a situation where I wish I were dead! I.e. halfway down a mountain and cathering speed uncontrollably...

    Oh don't you worry...the beady eyes of Clareifornication are everywhere...and after last year's business I'm hoping that this year will be just as entertaining (though obviously I'll be watching from the sidelines).

    I THINK that the Clareif site isn't googleable. I hope.

    Lol, punts are almost impossible to capsize, especially when they're full of people. That is a good effort.

    It's the back issues of Clareif on the srcf site that you need to worry about... but they are stored as PDFs, so you shouldn't have any problems! not that you would anyway, because you've allways been a good girl...

    By the way, my 600th post!

    I cross the road going to and from work right there under that coach :eek:

    It's half-wrecked that building, was a complete mess this morning, the entire road was still shut at 8am.

    Yeah, the car involved looked pretty much trashed. Makes you wonder how fast they must have been going, it looked like a motorway accident.

    The only way they could have got closer to the hospital would have been crashing into it. That's probably less than 50 yards from the Royal London's A&E.

    Are you sure it's the right Helen? I could only find references to other infamous Helens of the past.

    It's not a very big mention. Helen 'the medic' in last year's Lent Pulling Pool, no?

    We were shown that by a member of the crew/bc at the time the day we got on to the Lents, damn scary video for people who have no previous bumps experience, terrified pretty much everyone in the room as I remember it.

    In other news... Tickle thinks this of me...

    Vincent, you're like the Waltz!

    A romantic at heart, you have no trouble falling in love...and staying there. It's easy for a sweetie like you to follow your heart both on and off the dance floor. And like the elegant waltz, you'll never go out of style or lose your sense of grace. Always eager to keep things upbeat and positive, you try to appreciate the beauty in the people and places you encounter. You're a sentimental and passionate soul who tries to respect tradition and learn from the past. There's a poise and polish to everything you do. Sounds classic — just like you!

    em.... Waltz.
