    I just spent the entire afternoon trying to sleep. In the end, I managed about 2 hours. Maths work in for the super on Wednesday tomorrow. Looks like a half-nighter to me tonight.

    oi quit whining...i do rowing AND korfball...and korfball is AT LEAST as exhausting as basketball (any of the basketballers who play for us will tell you that...they get well exhausted). And I've got my toes strapped up with tape cos of the blisters which formed and the skin which then fell off (well i picked it off)

    Yeah, saw Willa out in his Emma boat. My outing today was actually really good - we got to row as a full 8 and we were moving quite nicely at some points. I wasn't distracted , though an interesting moment with a Queens' boat earlier did that to me
    I can't believe Willa has the time to do rowing instead of turning up for a 12 o'clock saturday morning lecture.

    Well, his outing didn't start till at least 3:30ish, so he could have been at his lecture, or at least, rowing wasn't the reason that he wasn't there.

    Neither have I... I'll do the physics tomorrow, but maths has to be done tonight. Which... having looked through the example sheets, not that many can be done. There's a pretty good chance that my supervisor is going to get medi... I must resist the tempation of saying such words.

    My foot is not actually that painful. But I just don't feel comfortable walking on them at the moment. Anyway, good luck with your blisters. You should never strip the skins off unless you have to. Get a needle, puncture the blister, leak the fluid and leave it like that. It's still going to be painful, but not as painful as without the skin.

    There's isn't a college Korfball team in Pembroke. So... I don't think I'll ever experience the excitement of kball. I'm sticking to my blurry world of basketball. (Try to imagine someone who has -6 -6 glasses playing the game without wearing it.)

    I look around when I get there, just before Paulson starts talking. And I never see you.... maybe I saw you sitting behind Wombat again today... but I can't remember. Having inefficiently extracted only 2 hours of sleep out of a 5-hour afternoon, my brain isn't functioning like it normal does at 8Hz (slightly better than the hamster powered computer proposed by Paulson).

    i'm the only emma korfballer


    it's quite cool though...all the korfball team thought I was a graduate or something because I was put on the first team straight away...so they thought I was coming back after a year working on some huge science project somewhere. So for the past 2 weeks i've had unconditional respect...but now I'm the team baby!

    well... in that case, you are most likely to miss the most interesting part of the lecture...

    They should look at you and go "WoW".

    University 1st team... Do you get a blue for that or something? I don't think I'll ever get the chance to play for the uni basketball team though, all the other people are just too good. There's a guy from Peterhouse who can score from anywhere inside the 3-point line (inclusive). 99% success rate.

    I think it would be a good idea (and I really want to go to Emma formal!). Not sure how you go about these things though; will ask the captain and keep you posted

    That's half way through the lecture. But it's a good quote. But I like the "Dual Hamster powered computer" better though.

    In that case, I should definitely polish up my Chinese Chess skills in the hope of making a half-blue. Like that's ever going to happen.
