Thats a whole lot of opera!

I'm afraid I'm classical-music-inept. I love the stuff, but I don't know any of the composers by style except that Chopin wrote lovely stuff for the piano, and Rachmaninoff wrote the best piano concerto ever, barring Greig's one.
I only have one classical CD except for my soundtracks I'm a deprived child :rolleyes:

You can't beat me. I listened to the whole of Wagner's ring cycle (14 CDs of opera) without a break.

I'm taking a couple of cake tins. You can borrow whenever you want.

You know I might actually take you up on that offer! I remember thinking how cool it was when my sister's flat mates all agreed to make birthday cakes for each other, I hope to be as cool!
I think it's fairly likely I'll have an oven, the fresher's pack included it in the basic facilities bit (one of my reasons for choosing Newnhaam was the good kitchens!), if not my Grandma (pre-nursing home) had a little tiny oven thing with grill that sits on the work surface. If my kitchen doesn't have one, my mum has promised to bring it up, I'll save more money cooking for myself than buying it made for me. Also considering saving all birthday and christmas money to buy a fridge/freezer thing for my room if it doesn't already have one. They seem to be about £120, I reckon over three years I'd end up saving more than the intial cost.

you can get those little beer-type fridges for about £30 now I think although I haven't seen any with freezers.. it would be good to get you started with and i imagine there is quite a big market in them when people move out and want to sell them

That would probably do...I'll make sure to look out for second hand deals, I can imagine carting one through the town from a different college could be an entertaining way to spend an afternoon!
Even a shelf of a freezer would be so useful, I still can't believe they don't have them as standard, this tradition of communal eating is frankly quite scary!!

Yeah, i've never done the communal eating thing (except with family). It's a bit weird. Also Dinner is served really early (I regularly eat at midnight)

Oi! :mad:
Lol, just got in from work about half an hour ago, washing up for hours tonight as my voice is a little croaky still and they didn't want me to scare any customers!

I don't really want to use the buttery or eat out much, I reckon I could live quite economically cooking for myself!
My eating patterns are a bit crazy, I love breakfast but often sleep to late to justify both that and lunch in less than an hour! I'm quite lazy and will put of making tea until someone else offers, if they don't it's left as long as possible!
I don't like the idea of having set meal times at all, I quite like the idea of freedom at uni, not having to be home at such and such a time etc, having to be back for food would drive me mad!

YAY Do you ever think about that and recoil in horror as to what you're getting yourself into? Every so often I stop and think "I'm going to the best uni in europe, number 3 in the world :O"
