pah - would take more than that to scare me

*Bathgate Power*



P.S. twas a good bath
Are you sure? I fear I'm becoming increasingly similar to one of the samaitian knights in King Arthur. One of the ones with a large quota of hair. And, when I'm home, my mum keeps asking me to sweep the bathroom floor every two days cause of all the hair :confused:
Oh well, it'll be good for making cushions by the time I get to uni.

Rant about my flight to Denmark:

Thrusday evening. Was on internet, about to get packed for flight at 16:05 the next day. Get called up, and told the flight is actually leaving at 6:05am.
Ok, I think, I can handle that, I've done it before.

Get packed, forget lots of things, get packed again properly, book taxi, hide laptop and speakers under floorboards (no joke), get passport, tickets etc ready for next morning.
Get to bed at 12:30 ish.
Alarm rings at 4:00. Yep, 3 1/2 hours sleep. Not good.
Get ready, get to taxi at 4:30.

Get to airport at 5:00.
Huge ****ing queue. At 5:00 in the morning? wtf?
Ok, I think, plenty of time. I join the queue to the check-in desk. There are four checkin desks. I notice that they are checking in flights from Lufthansa and BMI at the same 4 desks... would explain the huge queue.
So I wait in line for about 45 minutes. By this time I have become rather :mad: at all the people pushing through the line. I am still nowhere near the desk... I hear them calling for a London flight that is leaving in 5 minutes... most people on it haven't even checked in yet. There are some noisy Americans exclaiming "I'm going to miss my flight."
I worked out that they were checking in about 7 flights through those 4 desks.... :rolleyes:

Ok, so I finally check in, and run up the stairs to security... It's 6:00. I show my boarding pass to the woman at the secure entrance:
"Can I just go to the front of the queue, my flights leaving about now."
"I'm afraid you should leave more time for security, sir."
"It took me an hour to check-in."
"Well, you'll have to ask everyone in the queue ahead. Have a nice flight."
Again, wtf? What an idiot.

Ok, so some very nice people let me in front of them to security.
I get to security. Take of my bag. Place it gently on the conveyer.
Man picks up my bag, feels the weight, and dumps it on the machine with a
loud thunk.

"There are f**king plates in there!"
"Excuse me? Sorry sir."

Arrgh, so I eventually get past the goons, who didn't even check the bag, even though there is this massive black bit that came up on the screen that was the plates.

So, I run to the gate (other end of the terminal), and blissfully hand boarding pass over for the final call. I nearly missed the damn bus to the plane.

/part 1

Watch this space for part two.

I'm not certain, 'cos I don't go to Tit Hall and never will do... but I /think/ that it doesn't have any en suite rooms. According to my Sources (tm) the plan is to have <some/most/all/none> converted at the end of next year... iirc.

If any of this is wrong blame my friend who goes to Tit Hall and not me. It was him wot done it.

from what i've seen of the jesus accomodation a "medium" room should be plenty. Dont worry about sets they arent worth the money, not at least in the first year when you're still getting to know people.

Tbh I'd look at the accomodation costs and request a room that is on your budget. That's what I did, and I havent ended up with a bad room (could be better though)
