Can't I just sit on some stairs near the door? You seem to be going to a huge amount of trouble over all of this: sorry for the inconvenience of SPS lecture timetabling!
It's no trouble at all; I would gladly sit you on the stairs, if you desire, but health and safety regulations necessitate me seating everyone. If the university administration were running a tyranny, we would have much to fear.
Its a shame actually. Our bop this evening is Disney, and I would have enjoyed dressing up for that But Will's party will actually be enjoyable, whereas the only fun in the bop is dressing up and then I'd get bored after 15mins
