    so i got mine today, first choice owens park!

    room number T2.05.05

    for those who don't know, I rang up to ask how to decipher the code.

    T2 is 'tower' - the 2 is for their system, not us. (can be from T1 to T6)
    the second number (05 in my case) is the floor number.
    the third number (05 again) is the room number.

    it is different for other halls, but for people going to owens park, in particular the tower - that's how we roll.

    SO WHAT DID EVERYONE GET AS THEIR ACCOMMODATION?!?!?!?!



    let the banter begin.........

    I never, ever go to revs in fallowfield - I go to revs in deansgate all the time, but never fallowfield. I think I went twice for the whole of freshers.

    We are also forgetting trof, and the corner. I spend a lot of time in trof - sausage sandwich in the mornin' :yes: oh, and robbos, but robbos is foul.

    yes! font. I was going to edit my post to add it, but then I realised that'd make me on the verge of just listing every outlet in fallowfield.

    yeah, it's milk and other perishables. it's not just in the tower! they're all over OP. it's because their kitchens are well crappy.

    Also nobody has mentioned Pandora's
    eewww! i'll report you to paxman, start a proper scandal. my mum parked next to pandora's once, she said to me, "what odd opening hours they've got there!". So innocent :no:

    Ah ok. I have only really noticed on the Tower, i suppose no one can steal your milk if it is hanging out your window.

    If you are quick you can make today's News of the World.


    I am quite partial to the bog standard old man's pub that is the Friendship Inn. It is good for taking in some football on a lazy saturday afternoon. Font is good and Queen of Hearts and Baa Bar can be ok. Robbo's is not for the sober, but can be fun on the right night.

    Soz la. I wrote humourous but that somehow looked like a part of the body. But then again I think that's humerus. Yeah we do lots of spelling on my course :ninja:
