I need more coat hangers. Does this ever happen to anyone else, where you run out of skirt hangers and trouser hangers, but have plently boring, ole straight ones? I may own too much stuff of course! How the hell am I going to get it to Cambridge!? :confused:

Ha!!! Do you realise how long it takes me to get to Cambridge by train??? - between 4.5 to 5 hours, and often a couple of changes - quite how do you manage that with a pile of suitcases?
Stop complaining man! For me on the train it's about 15-20 hours in 4 or 5 different trains! :eek: By car it's about 2 days including the ferry trip (20 hours so we stop usually around paris for a night, well by usually i mean when i was ypunger and that plane cost a lot) So yeah since I have loads of stuff i wanna bring, my dad said he'd drive me so I'm gonna arrive at Cambridge all fresh adn rested for freshers week! Esp if i go to Warick for freshers' the week before... :p:

For me it's 14 hours by plane, and it's literally impossible to get there any other way. No idea how I'll get everything there, I guess I'll just have to stuff as much as I can into suitcases and buy anything I couldn't bring when I get there.

OK- so wait, for all those people who have to travel pretty far, does that mean that definately we have to bring everything back with us at christmas and at easter?

I was told by my college that overseas students (does EU count as overseas?) could leave their things in Cambridge but I´m not exactly sure how much. You can also stay during vacation although you might have to pay some extra fees.

Is this a camb coursr, the CMI and maths thingy, or OU or C&G or something?!

The CMI course is a management thing you have to do if you're doing a Year in Industry. The Maths course is run for the YinI by Loughborough and is optional. CMI got talked up a lot by the YinI staff but to be honest it's all CV filling. Useful for learning how to sleep with your eyes open and meeting other YinI types but not much else.

Away from all that I watch Donny Rovers
Oh dear, poor you. Heh. Of course, I'm only joking, don't take my banter seriously, or at least don't take it as seriously as some of your red and white hooped friends intend me to take their abuse. I am not scum. If you know anyone who goes by the name of Mada, or Jenny Lee, gimme a bell, although with Donny having (probably) more fans than we do, I doubt you know everyone. I thought I was going to be the only South Yorkshire football fanatic at Cambridge (grades depending). We could share abuse some time.

I'll hold you to it, although i must apologise on behalf of those others. We're not all that bad, despite the reputation. You'll have to get the grades now anyway And not only sharing abuse, there'll be someone else there who understands 'Yorkshire'. Working in Barnsley hasn't helped the accent much.

Barring minor mathematical miracles, be seeing you in League 1 next season then if you're a Miller? :boxing:

League 1, indeed. I'm actually quite looking forward to it. I've missed a good derby. In fact, the derbies were our best games this year, but there just haven't been enough. The year we came up there was us, Wednesday, Barnsley and United and that was fantastic. Next year should be better.

Just slightly! Well, Hull have got promotion and Wednesday may still go up (and so may Rovers, if three of the teams above us lose their remaining matches and we win ours, and then get through the play-offs :rolleyes: ) but there's still Bradford, Chesterfield, Barnsley, Huddersfield and possibly Lincoln.

thats not very nice of them... i had to go up for an interview. Flew into newcastle and stayed night in college and got drunk.

Not that you care now but on thw whole chads was definately the right choice... right opposite the cathedral and with a really really friendly atmosphere
