    it's really hard knowing what to say to people who've just been rejected. it's very very hard to know what the admissions tutors were playing at too, but I do have some faith in them. (well the cambridge ones anyway, not going to bother defending the oxford ones ) I can't even begin to imagine how gutted I would have been.

    Neil Dodgson seems cool, he seems to just set questions for Graphics (in IB) that only require extraordinary notes remembering. The Adv graphics ones are a bit trickier. He's an amusing lecturer, he knows far too many cartoon characters---I think he's got a couple of sprogs running around making him watch stuff!

    compsci isn't a good way to take over the world:

    you: "I am your uberleader(of doom), phear me as I rule your world"
    bystander: "you're a compsci"
    everyone: laughs
    you: run and hide

    Doesn't work, trust me, I've tried.

    I know he's cool. If I'm honest, I enjoyed going to his supervisions more than any other ones I had for the last term. But, he's the only one said my work is "satisfactory". Then again, it's hardware stuff we are talking about here, and I hate anything that's hard.

    Funny I was reading through last year's rejections/acceptances thread the other day. And you were on a break in California. And you weren't expecting to get an offer anyway...

    I would be gutted if I don't get anything that I asked for (applied for or whatever), except jobs.

    Yep I really didn't expect an offer but I would still have been gutted if I didn't.

    You should get it posted to you soonish, if not e-mail David and ask him. I said something at Peterhouse formal about my being "quite blatantly a prostitute" - I think related to Clare's infamous Hags, ****s and Drag party - and it got quoted entirely out of context. I have Ben's mobile number if you want me to PM it to you so you can nag him...

    I've just been shopping alllll day, I'm exhausted! I have everyone's presents though, and still have some money left (though not much, mind) and we went to see Phantom of the Opera - my sister condescended to let me go with her friends, which was oh-so-generous of her considering I'd driven her there. :rolleyes: Was mostly very good, though a few musical points I'd change, but who am I to say?
    I have a copy now, with interesting spelling of my address! I would hope most of the quotes were taken out of context, or do they really just come out with some of that stuff!? How many of the Helen quotes are yours or the other Helens'? I have a mention (and in a photo) but a completely random one (unexplained and about my eating habits!) in an article on the freshers' walk. I've emailed him, if he doesn't reply again I may take you up on the number offer.

    We're going to see Phantom tonight after work, on the condition that my sisters do not join in! I was made to see Blade Trinity last week, which was rubbish. Cinema here is so cheap compared to Cambridge! £2.20!

    A lot of the quotes are meant to be innocent, we don't deliberately say this stuff. And most of the other ones are the other Helen. I did say the prostitute comment, but it was sarcastic.

    I was very good and didn't sing during Phantom (which I've now seen twice) but have been singing it/had it in my head ever since.

    My rowing training is going soooo badly. I haven't even made it to the gym yet, just havne't had time!

    You guys were right. Lemony was a bit bad.

    I don't think mine is going too bad considering how busy I've been, I didn't do much to begin with but I'm running every day and walking the dog a lot more here. I try and do stretching while reading but I've not done any of the exercise/circuit things except some sit-ups every other day. Work keeps me rushed off my feet for several hours at a time. I'm not taking it too seriously as there are so many Newnham boats (6!) with all except one at a pretty high standard so I'm not in a top boat by any means and don't think I ever will be (too short they keep asking if I'd like to be a cox instead :mad: :p: ) but it's fun so worth the effort I think! Hope some decent walking over New Year will help! Gym sounds a bit too committed for me! My family think I'm a bit weird though, I'm eating loads (trying to put on weight!) but doing more exercise than before, which they don't seem to think go well together!

    I found the Phantom of the Opera really boring! The music was great, as expected, but the film (I thought) was quite badly made and a bit bizarre... But that was just my opinion The Incredibles was... incredible

    Yes, the story is bizarre - that's basically how it is in the musical though. There were some dodgy bits, and Christine annoyed me occasionally, but overall I enjoyed it.
