    that they wouldn't slip out :/
    I think I came across as a bit of an electronics n00b so I guess they thought they'd try to go for the big sell :p:

    luckily I'm not that stupid.

    Ahem.
    Yep. Don't try to pull the wool over the eyes of a Cambridge student

    Ehm.. well do you run in the gym? I only cycle and do weights so I've never had a problem with earphones falling out. You do get those earphones that hug your outer ear, but they shouldn't be any more expensive than any other set. Go to Argos at the Grafton - or use Argos online and get them to deliver.

    I just use the ones, as Nina, that came with my MP3 player. They've never slipped out during an erg so they're satisfactory

    Hmm, I think I know of her. But thanks for the thought.

    By the way, do you know if the university has an FT.com subscription that we can use? Or at least a cheaper subscription than £200 a year?
    There may be, but I'm not aware of it. I know the Marshall stocks the FT though. Best thing to do is probably to ask at the Marshall if we have an online subscription.

    For future reference, Sainsbury's > Co-op, although the co-op does do good chocolate at a reasonable price and is open to 2300 every day

    EDIT: Back to work :hmpf: If I'm on TSR before midnight someone have a go at me please

    Well at my gym you could buy earphones from there to plug into their system which cost £4. Cheapo ones are fine!
    ohhh I will ask at mine, thank you!

    Co-op is marginally more expensive and their Bitter Lemon is even worse than Schweppes :dry:

    Also their cheese is quite nice but seems to deflate as soon as you open the packet. Chocolate is good though.

    Oh and with the co-op, you need to know what to get where. For some things you buy them at the coop, for others you go across the road to one stop because its cheaper.

    Mock exam earlier: physics good, compsci ok, geology a nightmare.

    Now have to convince myself that my bop costume a) looks like what it's supposed to, and b) what it's supposed to be actually fits the theme.

    Then work. Probably not more than an hour of solid work in what I want to get done today, I'm just so unmotivated. And I have too many cereal bars.

    Will ask if I see anyone in one. I doubt anyone will be going to that much effort, though.

    And is there an Asda near the Grafton, as someone told me there was once, but I haven't found it?
