Didn't recoignise anyone there Did turn up a bit late though!

John's was funny - we went in and ordered. They asked for John's ID. We said we were from Girton. They gave some crap about needing to be with friends so I went to randoms to ask them to say they were inviting us in. They said fine but then the dude from the bar asked them to tell her our names (blatently they didn't know us) and she threw us out.. :mad:

It was all bouncy from there!

We did St Catz (and picked up more people), King's, Pembroke (Pollo Loco and myself met Crana and Camford and I went to ask the bar for bottle caps for her or something), Downing (that was also a laugh), Jesus (where we got into a bit of an issue about some horse people wanted to ride or something.. :rolleyes: ) and then Maudline (sp?) but it was shut.

After much debating some of us went to the Fez. Bad choice. There were no indiginous English people (or Irish, Americans, etc) there. Only Saudis (we spoke to more Saudis than anyone else!) and other people here to learn English. We staggered out early after buying some extortionate drinks and found some more Girtonians (after another adventure I'm keeping to myself (and the other guy with me!)) to hoon home with after some food.

We then had a sort of room party for the two of us who had been together all night in the room of a wee girl who had been out with us. She had gone to sleep but we banged her door repeatedly and phoned her and stuff untill she got up. We then all ended up trying to all fit in a single bed with the addtion of two chairs located just by the bed to provide extra space (if you understand but I then got up and left about five - the pussies fell asleep when we were having a great conversation about being a sociopath and how awful the legal system is - and we are two mathmos and a medic!).

When the drink wore off I realised that I hadn't done my Fresher's flu any favours (actually I did it a really big favour - it's me who didn't get any favours!). My throat is raw and my head pulsating in a totally "I'm sick" kind of way (as opposed to a "I'm hungover" kind of way) so I asked my mate to pick up handouts for me and let me photocopy his notes when he comes back.

I have a supervision at two :eek: (I thought it was about six! for which I need to finish an essay. I'm off to get ready and then it's essaytime all day

I hope you all had at least as bouncy a night as I had and I suggest that you avoid the Fez (on a Wed at least!)!





EDIT: I forgot to mention we also did Tit Hall We were doing a minimum of a shot in each of various whiskies. Charlotta kept asking for double malibus and pineapple. Screw that (cheating cow!) so we go her one double (first off), then triples everywhere else except one quadruple... How can young girls drink soooo much?!

I was unlocking my bike outside Queen's after attending First Aid squash last night and there was this girl locking up her bike next to me. We kind of bumped into one another when I realised I knew here from somewhere. So we got talking and it transpired that we went to the same college (she is doing a PhD), but not only that, she was in my class at a primary school I attended something like 14 years ago in a suburb of london and have never seen her since because my parents sent me to school overseas (and I never kept in contact with anyone from that sch).
What age are you dude? You must be at least 23 from what I can figure! You should meet up with me sometime... I can show you how to have fun and party way better than the young ones!

P.S. - Sorry if we woke anyone screaming "Girton" at the tops of of voices everywhere last night! I actually lost my voice for ages as a result (probably a good thing the state I was in! )

Apparently, women don't like anything that's within their reach. (Or maybe that's just what I think... never mind...).
For once you have stated something I tend to agree with.

Anyone care to explain why..? :confused:

The other question is - why do lots of girls like nasty guys, knowing them to be nasty?

One final question.. If everyone is dodgy about talking here and then having this other life outside - is it fair to extrapolate that you are all frauds? I, personally, think I am as honest and transparent here as I am in everyday life.

Maybe I have located the fundamental flaw in your arguement! (i.e. it would be cool if you were more honest about yourselves, whereas I'm cool about it because I don't adopt some other personality here)

Women think they can change the nasties... but the truth is, they can't. In they end, they get turned into nasties by the nasties.

Camford & Pol - Sorry, only just logged on here....couldn't have gone to the Anchor anyway, I am having an essay half-crisis (read above)....

I didn't know you were interested in Archaeology
I didn't go last night. And, I'm not all that interested in archaeology. But, if you talk about Egypt, then I might be able to make a statement or two.

Met Pol again last night outside my room, Pol is cool. And Pollo Loco.

I don't think I'm not being myself here :confused: hope not anyway!
I think the only thing that might be different is I'm less shy and will talk to more people, as obviously it's not face to face!

I was pretty embarrassed walking in late and having to squeeze in on the end of the row like that....i felt a bit guilty for asking you to move up! Actually, only after I sat down did I realise it was you!!!! I'm pretty quiet and shy myself
Ah don't worry about it, I was taking up half the bench! I did the same thing to one of my new good friends, we'd decided for the sake of meeting new people not to sit next to each other in lectures, but I sat next but one to her not realising until I'd sat down! :rolleyes: I really should pay more attention!

Katie - it's no problem, it makes life a lot easier for me too, so I'm happy for it to stay that way! Btw, what do you think of the chairman?

Being honest, I adopted the "my ideal" persona on the forum. In real life, I don't talk as much as I do here. But, if I was with my friends (only a handful of them, less than 6) then I talk a moderate amount.

I don't like big social occasions where the place is fully packed (e.g. whetherspoons on the pub crawl). Although I don't feel [really] uncomfortable in that situation, I tend to step aside from the big groups of people and find a few quiet ones to talk too. But, since all the quiet ones would also find such scenario uncomfortable, they would not show up... I reckon that's why Wombat didn't turn up at Cafe Nero and I didn't talk too much in StarBucks.

My own personality is fundamentally flowed. Exactly how, I'll need to find some psychoanalist to find out. I know about half of my problem, unfortunately, it does has elements of attension seeking (trying slash my wrists at 12 is about as good an example as it gets )(I am currently seeking for attension ) Along with it, there are various other aspects of my personality in real life which I don't like. That's probaly the reason why I keep myself away from my "persona" in my blog by using 3rd person perspective and talk about myself and Camford as two separate individuals existing in different world.

Boil down to the basic, I think I need a girlfriend. But, maybe, there're some othere serious problems I have yet to discover.

hehe, on the subject of famous people, just had my first Path supervision, all about apoptosis, and generally talking about how fab Prof Wyllie is! Still haven't spotted you in lectures yet, but I haven't been looking too hard. And I know I'm not the only one of the medics who finds this whole thing a little weird. It's not like it's something to be hugely ashamed of, and I'm sure there are tons more people who use forums and stuff, but it just takes some explaining and stuff. And among some of my friends there is still a bit of a stigma about meeting people off the net. I hardly have a double life, but explaining things over and over is complicated.
I haven't really looked too hard either - we were busy trying to spot the Sidney medics for the past couple of lectures! (we bumped into them eventually)

I know the feeling - I find it weird and not a little awkward too! There've been a couple of open days where people from here have made contact and it's been a case of... yes... good...

I'm finding the pathology stuff is a lot easier to understand if I just read the textbooks!

maybe try getting some of last year's notes (the relevant bits about cell cycles and signalling anyway, wrt wyllie's lectures) off the medics? it might help you make head or tail of some of the stuff he's talking about.

and i *still* do not know who you are, despite you living opposite me!

No, don't expect me read things on this forum from 10:30 till 16:30 on any thursday... well maybe next week... I don't know.

As I am writing this message, I am sure you have discovered the delight of Dr King's solution to both of the questions. Have fun with them.

Well, I may have picked your lock, but it's going take a hell lot more than what happened in the past to push me over the boundry of humanity... When that happens... I think (but I'm not sure), animal instinct would take over (the last statement is kind... attension seeking... ).

EDIT: removed "to" after "I may have".

I am current NOT insane.

The internet is the only place I can be true to myself... apart from with my friends...and on my blog... on in my diary when I write... That's about it...

Go psychoanalyse yourself.
