    I sympathise Miam. I never feel like I need a coffee shop, and I don't think I'd use it if Peterhouse had one - but maybe that's because I'm close to hundreds of coffee shops. I tend to go to First Class Tea alot for takeaway tea and a biscuit, but this is because I have several 2hr lectures in the Arts School next door, and these usually have 5-10min breaks in between. The rest of the time I just use stuff at home. I'm far too much of an addict not to have everything very well stocked :p: I have about 15 different types of loose tea, plus filter and espresso grind coffee and ovaltine, with a kettle and loads of mugs in my room.

    Can any uni student just wander in to a college coffee shop?
    I have no experience of Pembroke, but Kings let anyone in as long as you show your Uni card to the porter at the entrance.

    Yeah, I think if we do a bulk order it won't be ready until after bumps next term, but might be quicker if we order individually. Which is weird.
    How odd, one would have thought that a bulk order would be quicker if anything :rolleyes:

    Oxford is SOOOOO MUCH better than Cambridge.

    Cambridge is live a village in the stone age.

    Yep, that's why they make all the buildings out of stone.

    See, I'm from the first brick-age college. :p:

    I think both can be nice, but it depends I confess a weakness for stone though.

    I actually prefer stone, I'm just being facetious. Old brick like Magdalene is pretty cool though.

    Yeh - I don't think they'd mind if you told them they were better than Cambridge - although they might be rather confused at you posting it.

    I'm finally getting around to packing things to put into storage, and I think I should get one or two proper, big sturdy boxes to put things in. Any idea where I might get some?

    John Lewis have some great storage solutions, but they're a little pricy.

    Unsurprisingly, my habit of leaving things extremely late did not vanish just because of the holidays, which means that I will have to do a presentation at my old school in 10 hours and have only just started working on it. Yay! :yep:

    Baseball caps are very functional, although I would never buy one as stash. I have a CUY polo top, which is enough for the moment, until the CUCB ones come in. And the CMM of course have their own uniform, which I need to piece together.

    And brick is terrible until it's been up a few hundred years.

    I'd disagree. They keep the sun out of your eyes, they are cheap, they are adjustable, so they will not fly off when you are sailing in a force 6 / walking on the top of a fell in too much wind. OBviously there are hats that look better, but in terms of functionality I can't think of a better one.
