    only 24?? Peter says you need 36 to get a decent essay out..
    At my current rate I'd only manage to get about 1500 words with that... possibly less, as my wordcount grew so did my rate of consumption.

    I think I'll try again tomorrow powered by brunch and a million cups of tea.

    Not in that way! I spotted him acting about as drunk as I was.

    Wow, I just realised (through the joys of facebook) that I have met you (Andy) entirely seperately from anything TSR related. Weird.

    PS you suck at pool.

    I got mine! And hopefully will have my John's one secured by next weekend...

    Don't forget to hand in your deposit ASAP though, FTB, or you'll miss out.

    Is anyone else a bit confused by their mayball theme? Sidney's is some kind of apocalypse thing (how I'm going to convince Fran it'll be good is beyond me). At least Clare's looks cool!

    Yep, Robinson's is 'Premiere' meaning there will likely be a load of movie references I just don't get. I personally think the theme is a bit crap, but meh.

    I got my Catz ticket as soon as they started selling to Queenspeople, which is sometime before they sell to the general populace. It's just a shame we've got to get through another term and a half (and exams) until we see them, really.

    I'm not going to a Mayball this year - there's a trip to Verona/Vicenza as part of my course this year, and I'll be spending my money on that. Tel's probably going to try to get security work tho. he was mistaken for a bouncer when we went to Queens May Ball last year!

    We've got "Easy Street", which is 1920s Jazz and stuff.

    I wonder if Seth was on the committee?

    Oh well, it'll be fun. I'm thinking of working on teh night, too, as I don't like drinking much and it'll give me an excuse not to- and I don't see why someone else who would otherwise drink should be stuck not drinking!

    Hmmm, I should sort out if I'm coming to Clare. They really milk the alumni though, it's a 25% premium for posting it to your house or something stupid like that.
