    I think we need a chat thread for prospective and current students. Durham has one so why can't we?!

    What do you think? We will get to know each other before we even get there!

    Let me think... um, would you like to join any societies?

    Hopefully someone else will think of some good, 'getting to know you', questions!

    On similar threads are questions about:
    first name
    course
    fav.music/film/drink/book etc.
    interest
    age

    you could add some York-specific questions like
    why do you love/hate ducks?
    why do you wear women's underwear ? ( but it's a crap question, since for girls an answer is kind of obvious )

    Good idea!

    First name: Laura.

    Course: English Literature and Philosophy.

    Fave music: Anything that sounds good to the ears! I like a bit of everything.

    Fave film: Ratatouille made me smile. I love thrillers, chick flicks , comedies and films that really make you think. The only thing I'm not too keen on is horror.

    Fave drink: Tea, hot chocolate, red wine, Guinness, diet redbull. Whatever I feel like, really.

    Fave food: I'm a vegetarian so all things veggie e.g. ricotta, lasagne (microwave ones, atm ), Quorn, chilli, curry, fish. OK so I eat fish... it isn't an ethical thing (for me anyway), I just don't like meat. Chocolate, obviously.

    Fave book: Oh my, this is a hard one. I enjoy most of the books I read but I can't pick one on the spot! Sorry, I'm useless! I am a book:worm: .

    Age: 20 ... *wonders whether this will be a problem*. I'm sure age doesn't matter too much.

    School you went to - state, private or boarding: State.

    York-specific questions

    Why do you love/hate ducks?

    I like ducks because they quack and waddle. I think male ducks are beautiful. I have never understood why female ducks are brown... I don't know anyone who doesn't like ducklings. Feeding ducks is a good pastime/revision break.

    Why do you wear women's underwear?

    How is this question related to York?!

    I wear women's underwear because a) I am a women and b) because it's hygienic and normal! I think, "What type of underwear do you wear", is more specific. I guess people can answer this question if they want to get up close and personal.

    Feel free to add to it!

    I keep adding to my list of favey things! It's hard to think of everything in one go!

    York-specific questions

    Why do you love/hate ducks?

    I like ducks because it's pretty much impossible to hate them. Plus they remind me of York. The building I work in here has a moat, but no ducks

    Why do you wear women's underwear?

    I like the way it makes me feel... Only kidding, I'm more of a boxer shorts person :P

    would you like to join any societies?
    I'm planning on joining Dancesoc upon my return to York. I was technically a member of Opera Soc because I was bullied into it last year, but I kind of didn't really do the societies thing for the first 2 years. Wish I did though, being on the JCRC wasn't that much fun.

    Yeah... I'm too lazy to colourise my answers

    I need to look into the society thing. I wouldn't mind trying hockey and wall climbing… I will see if I can find a list of societies. No doubt, we will all end up joining something we never thought we would. Do you think there will be a shy person's society?

    Dance and Opera Soc? Wow, you are a man of many talents! I wish I could dance/sing!
