    Tesco's is clearly awesomer. We bought a really good camping stove for £2.50 the other day. And it has a mooring

    Generator day tomorrow!!
    I spent a good 10s thinking "how the hell can a camping stove have a mooring?!"

    Just watched Handel's Messiah in Trinity Chapel :king1: It was fantastic!!! First time I've seen something choral of that scale - and it was excellent sitting so close to the front. Unfortunately they didn't bother with heating in the chapel, so we were all pretty cold. I wasn't too bad, but some people were really suffering. I'm sure the performers had it pretty bad - the girls wearing dresses with dainty wrap things, and one of the soloists was blowing into his hands between performances
    *is very very jealous* :hmmm:

    You're browsing members by rep and post count!? Go and do some work or something!
    Idle moment, sorry :o: TSR is never active when I want it to be, and is always really busy when I don't, i.e. when I should be going to bed.

    I am catching up though

    Yeh - so did I.

    I'm annoyed at how quickly I'm running out of time. I think I need to start thinking of the shepherding as a real job because I'm actually getting paid, that will stop me resenting the large dent its created and the insane exhaustion.

    You get paid?!

    *signs up for next year*

    I'm at my Grandparents atm. They are lovely people, but it can get a little tiring. It also means that from Tuesday I will have to work ideally 6 hours a day. I think I'm going to bite the bullet and do structures. With luck everything else will be easy after that.

    Shepherding? As in scaring the ***** out of sheep with dogs? Or is it some slang term I don't know...?

    You dirty Arts students. What's wrong with the science museum?! :P
    (Original post by Scipio90)
    That it's a bit ****?
    The Science Museum is one of my favouritest places in the whole world. I love all the museums and art galleries in London, the fact that they're free automatically makes them great and means I've spent a lot of time in all of them. And the Science Museum is awesome :eek:

    But where is the science? There are steam engines, which are cool, and space rockets and stuff, but I can never seem to find anything else worth looking at

    It's intended to be accessible rather than high brow And if you delve there's loads of interesting stuff. I spent hours in a History of Science gallery last time I went, looking at really random stuff that people had invented over the years in the name of science. And the futuristic bit's always good for a laugh. The Optics gallery is coooool as well. Aaaand I took my brother once and we ended up spending ages in a gallery about household inventions which was really interesting, we learnt how fridges work and things. I seem to remember walking round a prosthetic limb collection at some point too, but that may have been the V&A.

    That stuff sounds cool, but where is it when I visit? Maybe i'm just really bad at finding my way around buildings?

    There were only three from the well known colleges, of which Selwyn fielded one :proud: (the others came from Catz and John's (:puke:)).
    :rolleyes:
    Hm, I resent that.

    Cambridge may have lost varisty overall, however they did win he U21 varsity match anyway so it wasn't all bad.:yep:

    Oh yes, of course We're off to see the Turner Prize submissions fairly soon hopefully, I do love them.
    I haven't been to the Tate Modern in ages... I missed out on both the crack and the slides! However, I think I'll give the Rothko exhibition a look. I've been longing to go back there for yonks, especially given the fact that at Cambridge I live in a building designed by the same architect!

    I used to consider myself a reasonably cultured person but the intensity of the Cambridge workload meant that I didn't have the time to indulge in as much cultural activity as I'd have liked. However, I watched Newsnight Review today and it helped instil in me a slight sense of smug, metrocentric elitism which I found rather encouraging. :p:

    I've been gently easing myself into working. I've been reading a John Tosh book on the public use of history as a warm-up to writing my HAP essay and today I read a chapter of a general book on later medieval Europe. What's especially fun are the specialised words. Lots of vassalages, prebends, scutage, bailiwicks, échevins and, of course, feudal overlords. I've never studied anything like this before so it's particularly exciting! I know - total nerd binge!

    And, I hope, escutcheons, charges, crests, mantlings, compartments, fields, ordinaries, saltires, mullets, roundels, etc. etc.

    I saw the slides, but didn't go on them.

    The rothko exhibition is something I might like to see, since apparently they only "work" in real life, not in reproductions.

    I've heard exactly the same thing. I've even heard some grand claims about their ability to bring grown men to tears. I'm quite sceptical about that myself (and, even so, British reserve is my middle name :p:) but it'd still be fascinating to see it in the flesh.

    In response to the parallel convo - have people been to Kettle's Yard yet?
