    it still sounds stupid and is very annoying. I've been told people in the subs forum were *****ing about how you always say it, actually, but I have no way of checking if that is true or not.
    It's not something I'd noticed, unless it's been within the last few days, when I haven't been checking in there so much. People either seemed indifferent or thought it was cool in a weird way.

    Clearly it's got your goat though, although I have no real idea why it's your business.

    No, I think it was a few months ago.

    Why it's my business? It's about as much my business as it is when people post other daft things on here.

    And, um, "cool in a weird way"? I'd think again mate.

    Meh, like I said, I'd never noticed it. And though that wasn't a direct quote, it's about what someone (God knows who) said, though obviously not everyone is going to agree. I just happen to hate saying "my bf" all the time, because that annoys me so I thought of something different.

    I don't like that either. I don't have a problem with "my boyfriend" unless it's from someone who mentions it in every other sentence because it's the only kind of validation they get.

    I could compromise on "my boy". I just don't like the "the". Not that you have to take any notice of me, of course

    PS. My goat is still happily eating last year's essays in my back garden at home

    I think it started out as "my boy" but somewhere along the lines got changed. Or possibly I was drunk/tired and tried to write boyfriend and failed. I think "my bf" annoys me because it's too snuggly-wuffly and also possessive. I see your point though, so I'll try to remember.

    Can I have a goat too?

    You don't have to bother with your tutor too much... they are like the non academic guardians...

    I am meeting my DoS in an hour to decide what questions I should be doing in exams next June. For God's Sake! I don't know! Haven't seen any of the course material yet!

    We had this problem last year. And this year. But I am moving!!!

    Get some very good earplugs. You can try putting sheets of cardboard in your windows but this will probably help with heat more than noise.

    Cycling club charges 10 pounds per year... urgh... would it be a good idea to pay someone 10 pounds so you are more likely to get run over by something?

    Wow we were signing up so many people for korfball that for the last few hours we were actually being a little selective in that if people said they had no hand eye co-ordination we actually told them it's probably not for them then! I really hope lots of people show up to the first training session!
