Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Here’s something strange: I was in the Stephenson halls at Durham last year. And whilst I have no idea what a ‘house manager’ is, I’m assuming it’s like a porter – who thought that I was insane. And still does.
As for lifts, I can’t believe that getting stuck in one made the papers. It happens all the time here. Just get everyone to jump at the same time. People do it all the time.
I got fined £15 for leaving stains on my carpet. Which was actually nothing to do with me, they were there when I arrived. But never mind.
Anyway, now I’m snuggled up in my Happy House instead of halls. It’s SO much nicer and more comfortable. Even if it does mean I now have to get up before ten to nine.
Anyway, it just seemed weird that there was a freaky LBSC connection there.
