    On a slightly unrelated note, lectures are really really boring and I only had one today.
    Technically I only had one. I accidentally went to two.

    I was late for my 9am by about 20 minutes. Here's why:

    I got out of the shower at 8:50, and saw that I had 10 mins to get to my lecture. I fired up the engine on my racing bike, and rushed the journey (normally 15 minutes) in about 7 minutes, arriving at the building at 9:02. I was so knackered by my ride that I spent about fifteen minutes catching my breath and trying not to vomit (I succeeded). I hadn't had breakfast.

    It turned out that the lecturer had spent about fifteen minutes explaining that there are different sizes of grains in soil, and that some of them take in more water more quickly etc than others. Woop.

    There is a really cocky Trinity medic about. Parkin and Dr. Hunt were talking about something quite unrelated to today's FAB procedure, and he kept trying to butt in saying "oh yes, I agree" or "yes, that is rather obvious, is it not?"

    Now, wasn't that obvious? :rolleyes: (anyway, who was it?)

    In maths lectures, Trinners just sit there doing nothing at all. Usually, mathmos from other colleges ask questions about 'exact definitions' and stuff like that.

    :eek: You're weird... technically I had two...
    Well, by the time I'd got there and realised it wasn't my lecture after all, I couldn't be arsed to cycle home as I had one at 10 anyway. And I didn't have my card to get into the library so I couldn't just go and do work.

    Visesh, in answer to your earlier question - I avoided demonstrations from Mr B as often as humanly possible because he is a) terrifying and b) enormously sexist and thinks women shouldn't do Medicine, let alone become surgeons :mad:

    We call him a) the perve or b) Dr. Death.

    I feel uncomfortable around him, even if he didn't ask me to feel his leg /iliotibial tract.

    Hmmm., just did my first 5k erg. I'm pretty sure I had the slowest time in the squad, but to be fair I am also the lightest in the squad, and it was my first one so i didnt know how to pace it (although i can't keep making excuses because it actually felt pretty well timed from my perspective, so it's disappointing that it was slower than everyone elses times)

    Do you know if you're coming to Sidney on Sunday yet? If you are, I'll big you up to the rest of the squad. It'll be fine! Well done for doing your first 5k erg. I'm off to do some of my own now (though probably not 5k!).

    Exercise is bad.

    I still don't know who you are. I'm looking for a tall rower type guy but all I can see is...well, nothing further than 3 feet away since I lost my glasses.
    Correction, he's not the massively tall rower type. you should be looking for someone in between 175 and 185 cm. (I think Willa is not taller than 190cm... otherwise I would have made a mental note on that).

    In other news... There are massively tall non-rowers around.

    the first thing to know about me is...i'm not tall. I'm only 5ft10 (and a bit :p: ), but that is quite tall for a lightweight actually, based on the current squad!

    And yes I am coming to sidney on sunday vicki. You don't need to big me up though, I'll hopefully improve on my time in next week's 30 mins (which is like an 8k erg, just a little bit less), i'll be aiming to only drop my split by a second or two from my 5k time, which if I manage to hold I am sure I'll climb the ranks of the "erg score leaderboard". And just for the record, yes I did get the slowest time, but several guys didn't do it, so I might beat them, and also my weight adjusted time compared to the other weight adjusted times isn't terrible. I guess the important thing is I can get a better time next time, and improvement means a hell of a lot.

    they're not a mess, i tend to develop a new blister every now and then but generally my hands seem to have gotten the idea that there's no point them growing soft skin, they might as well stay rough as sandpaper. I prided myself on being one of the first guys in the squad to be ready to go out rowing without any tape on, so my erg time might not be amazing, but at least i have tough hands!

    The hands of the women trialling from emma look terrible though.....but i haven't seen them recently. It just depends how much rowing you've been doing i guess.

    Anyhows, I best go to sleeps, I have to be up in 6 hours time

    I did Path practicals with a guy who rowed for CULRC last year. His hands were in a disgusting state the whole way through, right up to the boat race.

    I had formal with Caius men first boat last night and must say it was quite fun... i was sitted right opposite the uni boat captain and right next to a german guy who participated in the last Olympics :eek: Most of those guys were graduates nearly 10 years older than me and they all got me rather drunk due to excessive pennying... and then i had to wake up for rowing this morning at 6.30 :eek: painful!

    Yep, that's boatie life for you. I had boatie curry last night, which was a little more of a damp squib than I would have liked. First of all we had to wait over an hour to even be seated, despite the fact they let in a Fitz drinking society social AND a Blues football one in before us for no apparent reason :mad: By the time we did get in, several people had had to go home. Then the Fitz men and whatever random tribe of blondes they were with were sooooo wasted and noisy by the time we came in, we just sat there thinking "You look like tossers" (especially when one guy fell over the table and proceeded to throw up EVERYWHERE).

    After that it got better and I got fairly merry, so all was good. Vanessa, if you go to novice formals they tend to be more fun - fewer old grads hanging around

    Excessive pennying? There's one total tosser in my hall who pennys with a gay abandon, and then when the drink (usually a pint, and usually lager - I've now started drinking the bitter because downing lager is HORRIFIC) is downed he asks for his penny back. He just doesn't understand.

    Pennying apparently got so prolific in the Bristol Officers' Training Corps that there is now an official penny (the pennymaster is appointed each year), and no other pennies are to be used under any circumstances. I haven't quite worked out how the penny finds its way back to the pennymaster at the end of the night though.

    GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!
