1) Meeting new housemates
When meeting housemates for the first time it is important to be on the way to do your weekly laundry, i.e. be carrying a brimming Ikea bag that smells... well... fresh. Also, as an added bonus, wear sandals with jeans (you know, the hiking-shop type ones) and a minty splashjacket even though you never wear it because you think that people think you're a bit of a tool for wearing one. Oh, and have the general "I've just been dragged through a hedge backwards" look. HAIR EVERYWHERE. (I was just going into college to throw some washing into a machine. I really didn't care....) THEN, when they inevitably ask what subject you do, say Astrophysics.
|What my housemate probably wanted to see.|
|What they got.|
2) Big rowing day
This is more of an apology really. To set the scene, I had just got back from Ely last Satuday (so smelt a bit) , I was wearing the leggings (again - I love cold weather!) and the t-shirt with the :-D face on it (from this post). Oh, and Oakleys. Mmmm. Oakleys.
|You have to wear Oakleys to filter out the awesome rays emitted by Oakleys so they are safe to look at.|
I was so distracted by (a) not killing anyone and (b) the glare from the mintyness on my legs that I actually cycled over some poor bastard's blade. I'm ashamed to say I was a bit of a twat and just said sorry as I rode off trying not to asphyxiate from laughing so hard. I think it was a St Catz macon. I feel a bit bad about this, so, for the record:
ANYWAY. So, my general advice is for everyone to take Astrophysics courses (I mean, "Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics" does sound awesome, doesn't it?) and wear bad kit while carting round loads of smelly clothes. That's how you get on in life! :-)
I mentioned earlier that I like cold weather, mainly because winter clothes are better. Oh, and for the joys of **TOAST** and soup for warming up with. For example, I drew this on the train this morning. I think it is a fair representation of what me and my friend Sarah looked like at 0620:
|I've realised that I've missed off Sarah's iPhone. I apologise profusely for this oversight. And yes, we were that happy. We had HATS!|
|+1 Hat! Result!|
There is one smal problem however. It is not offically winter yet, so I feel a little wussy wearing a hat in what is actually still summer. I'll explain: the seasons are judged on what my coach wears in Ely. This system I have called
|He has a dog called Elmo YES IT'S A DOG THANK YOU VERY MUCH.|
The PLSB is currently in summer mode. I therefore feel like I should only wear a one-piece all the time even though it's 4° and it's a 50mph headwind and it's hailing and your hands have frozen to the blade handles. But Peter's wearing shorts so MTFU and take off that longsleeve. I will update you when the barometer gets set to winter mode so you can wear your leggings again without being judged.
FINALLY, I found this and I challenge you not to smile just a tincy bit when you watch it (not a Rickroll - promise!) When I'm dancing in public, I like to think I look like the woman at the top of the staircase and not like I'm having a seizure.
(I wish I knew how to embed youtube videos in blogger - if anyone knows can you tell me? They seemed to have disabled the embedding code...)
On that note, good night!
Oh, and the "updating at 1700" thing? LIES. But I like the picture of the dinosaur so it's staying.
