"this is the store manager, could all customers go to the till please, the store will be closing in 10 mins" That was what it said when I left the store... The worst stocked anything in the entire unknown universe.

My friend got some from one of the picture shops on King's parade, but unfortunately not sure which one...

I had the circulation cut off to my arm for 40 mins this morning for a Neuro practical. That was nice. It was really weird, started off getting crazy pins and needles, then my hand went really cold and my arm went all blotchy and blue - it looked like it had been dead and in a river about a week! By the end of it, I couldn't feel anything at all, and couldn't move any of my forearm or hand muscles, even though it felt like I was lifting them, they just weren't having any effect at all. Then when they took the cuff off...owwwieeeee!
Aaaaaaar, I did that last year! I was freaking out by the end. The demonstrator came over to help us find the nerve for the last test, he lifted my arm up and it just flopped back down again... scaaaaaary!

It was soooo cool

The art shop on kings parade that's between the newsagent and the natwest sells them, you need to ask though because they keep them under the counter. Like 40p each or so.

Alaric.
I love you. Thank you

I love you too :confused:

Urgh, I've just had a fair amount of a bottle of amaretto and watched the italian job 2, possibly the worst rehash in the entire world.

I also managed to make myself look like the worst kind of social eejit today, but the least said about that the better.

I don't want to get up in eight hours, it's too painful, why do I need to bother with lectures

Alaric.

you'll be getting quite a bit about apoptosis next year as part of IB medic/bionatsci pathology.

and btw, it was originally coined as apo-ptosis, so it's pronounced a-po-to-sis. (2nd p is silent. though everyone nowadays seems to pronounce it other than poor old prof wyllie, who, incidentally, coined that term.)

and the beauty of proteases and other lytic enzymes are that they are catalysts, i.e. not consumed in reactions, so relatively small amounts of these nasties are more than able to digest large chunks of the cell if released from lysosomes.
Medics will get a fair amount late in Lent term when you get lectured by Prof Wyllie for the first time.

But yeah, apoptosis (and my supervisor doesn't pronounce the 2nd p either!) is very, very organised, the cell does to an extent digest its own contents, but does not allow it to spill into the surroundings; it signals to neighbouring cells, which then phagocytose bits of it and break them down themselves.

Alaric, what did you do? :eek:

Nowt really, just ignored someone who's been in my lectures for the previous two years for about twenty minutes. Don't know why, I'm sure their perfectly friendly. It was fairly awkward really.

The natural thing would have been to say hello, but did I? Did I ****. :rolleyes:

Compsci! Point and laugh!

Ahhh thanks.

If anyone sees someone with a Black NHS(or maybe Nottingham High School) Cross country hoodie, say hi to him from me. Medic at Catz.
I'm at Catz and know a few 1st yr medics here. Haven't seen the hoodie though. Does this guy have a name?

I'm going to Robinson formal tonight Woo. I saw Ralfskini at the Babbage today but he ignored me. And Steve (sbailey, hasn't posted in a while, he's probably actually working, unlike me ) sat on the Clare row in our lecture this morning :eek:

Not that exciting though, as I have two of the biggest pieces of gossip this century, which were keeping me far more entertained

One of them will be common knowledge soon enough. The other one is very, very secret and will never be told, but I can chuckle about it to myself *muwahahaha*

well, i saw YOU again at the babbage, in fact you walked straight past me, and you ignored me again so in the ignoring/being ignored stakes you are...neutral

sorry
this is what 6 hours of analysing drinks does to you

Sorry! You have to be more obvious. Poke me, if you like, I'm just usually trying to get out and to another lecture/practical so not the most aware of my surroundings.

Alaric/fishpaste, have you read Clareification yet? Scary numbers of the "You know you've been in Cambridge too long when..." apply to me! I think it was probably written by one of my friends. But my fantastic random quote didn't get in :mad:

Yeah I have. The "you've been in cambridge too long when.." is really quite hilar. I swear one of them is in reference to something my friend Theresa does. The "you overhear people discussing cell biology in sainsburys" or something. But yeah I was quite impressed as to what got into clareifornication about her and Lee Harper. I quote:

"To the infinite distress of P staircase (who were all in attendance) freshers Lee 'Slurpy'*** Harper and Theresa Carter got down and dirty with it for the paltry sum of £20 on Friday - that's what we like to see. Only they later admitted that they'd been at it all week, so no payout. They're now flaunting it at every chance they get."
***(think of a certain sexual practise we were discussing before in this thread! =|)

Hilar enough, but we don't actually know who submitted that? Only 6 of us were in the room at the time, and were in on the £20 sweepstake, and all of us are solidly denying mentioning it.

So Helen, what's this thing which will be becoming common knowledge? You should tell us that at least, but I *REALLY* have to know the other thing.

*snigger* I saw Allison the computer officer reading 'network naughties' this morning at buttery.
