    Your loss dude! :rolleyes:

    Would you believe it, I go all the way to Caius and they didn't even feed me more alcohol. They fed me Horlicks of all things

    Also, for a town apparently in the full throws of freshers' week, it's remarkably quiet at 3am, I saw nobody at all between Trinity and Chesterton Lane traffic lights.

    I think he missed a comma that makes it more sensible:

    " I'm determined to make this one girl that I went to six-form with but never spoke to, one of my best friends during the 3 years of study at Cambridge."

    That makes more sense to me, it's future tense because it's intentional.

    A.
    I think I missed out two commas Alaric. And, I don't fancy this girl... Well, not yet anyway.

    I do appologise for my language. It may be because I have been drinking too much and sleeping too little.

    I got this thing at the Cavendish building today at 11:30 and I don't even have a clue where the hell on earth is this place... It makes want to go back to do A'Levels again. That was just so easy, everything's done by the school... Missing those days.

    Camford, I don't mean to sound rude but WTF?!

    I can normally get what you are trying to say but your last post was a word salad! :rolleyes:
    You don't need to get it. Anyway, I am Chinese ok? I am allowed to not make sense with my sentences. You are not, cos your first language is English (Irish if you can speak, in which case, I owe you an appology.)

    hello everyone this is me saying hello from pembroke, am feeling slightly confusd about everything but having an ok tmie, seem very very busy though.

    what cafe nero is it i am sure there are more than 1 ? Also I have to organise a supervision at 4.30 i think. so if you do all go somewhere else could someone please text or ring me or whatever? I'll PM willa my mobile no. and lex and a couple of other people havei t too.

    Agggggggggggggggg so much to do.

    Visesh, I think im ok on the recipe (im just m issing out the complicated lentils. i ont think they are vital). but i willl attempt to email you if i have problems.

    Oh, and I see no readson why it cant be made in the bottom of a big saucepan?? I ight go and make it soon, getting hungry, and food in hall is pretty foul so far.

    visesh, you know what, compared to most of the people here i have encountered so far i can hold my drink pretty damn well y'know. although that isnt saying a great deal.

    Pol, you may have one of my bottles if you like, but i think you should come and bring me the other iw ill even give you a cup of tea.

    I did look out for you when we encountered a load of girtonites on the pub crawl but i didnt see you.

    Uuummmmmmmmm what was I going to say...

    Oh yeah, I am extremely proud!

    1) I haven't been IDd once since we've been here
    2) A guy at dinner yesterday thought i was a postgrad

    A ha ha ha ha!

    Doubt many of you will get this in time, especially if your week is going anything like mine!! but I don't think I can make it today I have to meet one of my supervisors (and gain my third essay title for next week :eek: ) at 4.30pm, and I'm not entirely sure where I'm going! Bio Anth building anyone? The door I found seems to not open :confused: I may pop in but can't stay long, I actually knwo where the Nero place is (so proud of myself!) as I hid in there yesterday from the crazy rain!

    Freshers' week has been short lived (didn't think they'd give me essays and compulsory reading this early or need them a week today!!) but crazy, I've met so many people and I've forgotten who everyone is apart from a really nice handfull here in college! I've not really met anyone outside of college yet (please please let that not be the case for the rest of the year!!) but I'm going to the inter-college cocos thing tonight and the Big Bang thing when can work out how to do the activation thing! I will be around tomorrow evening pub-crawling

    Might see you later, especially if I get lost and need directions!

    Helen, sorry I couldn't stay long earlier, it's all so hectic I don't know what I'm doing most of the time!! Nice to see a face I recognise and know the name/college/subject stuff without having to ask or pretend I haven't forgotten! Probably see you at some CUSAGC stuff soon enough!

    Off to cook now!!

    Some people can't hold their drinks alright. And some just can't stop them from getting shot. There's no way I can understand why one would want to drown oneself in booze. Anyway, I seem to have passed the initial two units zone. Now I'm in full functional states. So, I can pretty much out drink 95% of the population, obviously not all together. So long guys, off to see Sue Stobbs.

    I just came back from Stobbs's office. Having my physics supervision with a PhD student. Nice guy, well, seems to be nice. But looks can often be deceiving.

    I forgot to mention that I went to the Cavendish lab this morning to register with physics practicals. I think I saw Squishy there. Simon with the blue t-shirt with Squishy written on the back. I thought he wouldn't want to be known as squishy anywhere except for ukl. Well... us CompScis can be a bit odd at times. If you are like me then... it's obvious that I am odd at all times.

    sure thing. see you at the mem court porters lodge at 3.45. though don't expect i'll have a clue whether we're looking at TSR people also, judging by what i've seen when I've walked past recently we'll be lucky to get in the door.

    yeah cool, I'll see you then. It's normally looking really busy in there, I'm not sure how busy the upstairs gets though.

    If other people are reading this (oooh I'm leaving this late) then if you see me and fishpaste looking lost come and grab us. I'll be wearing a black leather jacket and have short blonde hair .

    Ah, I was going to suggest meeting at Old Court, but I have to go to town first, so can't be arsed to go town - Mem - town, so I'll see you there.

    RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA no room connection :mad: I need MSN! BEFORE Clareifornication is out!

    And oh dear lord, never let me drink Jack Daniels straight again :eek:. We were going to go to Cindies post-formal (I hadn't been to formal, but my friends had) but when we arrived there was a ridiculous queue, so we didn't bother, went back to Clare bar and bought some wine to take to the colony. All good fun, until someone started doing shots of JD with me. Only I had a bigger glass than he did. And it was rather embarassing. Ooops.

    If the Squishy person is squishy, then you'll definite not miss anyone. Well, unless of course that you have eye sights that's worse than mine.
