    Most excellent. Me neither. The Peterhousean in question was outside watching people vomit at the time.

    You're from Germany, and it seems you do maths, and you know someone at Queens' doing maths... I assume the person you know is also German, as you do seem to congregate together in lectures. Is the person you know Helge?

    Indeed .
    (The reason for this 'congregation' is, I guess, that everyone likes to sit next to people they know, and most other people I know are at the Cockroft a lot earlier than I am and therefore stuck somewhere in the middle of the front rows when I arrive, totally exhausted, after cycling there from Fitzwilliam :p: )

    Excellent. Not a bad guess for a 1 in sixteen chance. So which German are you then?:p: The blonde one who wears christmas-y looking jumpers most of the time?

    And Queens' is only a 3 minute walk from cockcroft

    Nope, I'm not blonde :P . I usually wear a white/blue raincoat and then some kind of jumper or jacket, but I wouldn't describe any of them as particularly christmas-y. And I have rather short, non-curly hair.

    The only other german I know for certain is german has curly hair. So, I have no idea who you are :P

    It is, however, very nice to make your acquaintance

    The pleasure's all mine :top2: .

    (I hope that this sentence actually says what I am trying to say, but I guess I will have to trust my dictionary on that one... it's not that hard getting used to the English language, but (a) picking up colloquialisms, (b) figuring out what certain food is (I still have no idea what the "haddock" I had for matric dinner was) and (c) getting used to proverbs and formal/old expressions is a bit of a problem sometimes...)

    I've just realised how bizarre being back in East London feels after spending two months in Cambridge, a bloody quiet and boring 'city'. I was walking back home today from the tube station, and I saw a quite violent crime incident, and it really shook me. Incidents like this happen all the time, and I've seen quite a few of them, but living in Cambridge has kind of changed me, I think. I'm seeing London life from a different perspective now.

    In Cambridge, the tramps let drunken people sing with them. In my home town, the tramps throw broken bottles at you until they fall over from exhaustion/inebriation. I love Cambridge :P

    You watched a crime, and...? :eek: Did the police show up?

    This morning I arrived at the plodge for shepherding on time to see them peeling a smushed cyclist from Trumpington street. The guy had tried to overtake a car that was overtaking another car, and had gone straight into an oncoming vehicle's windshield :dry:

    'Haddock' is a most difficult thing to come to terms with. I didn't personally believe in Haddock until I was at least 16. But yes, your statement made sense:P

    I didn't feel like hanging around in case I got dragged in or involved, but as I went round the corner I heard sirens, so I guess the police did arrive. I didn't watch it as such! It just started happening as I was going past, and I picked up my pace so as to leave the scene before it escalated any further!
