Warning: This post was published more than 14 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 14 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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.

I need celebrities. Well, one actually. We’re looking for four celebrity judges for the MedSoc Christmas Full Monty event . We already have three (I don’t actually know who). These will be responsible for choosing their favourite strip team. There are first year girls vs second year girls, and first year boys vs second year boys…Four teams, apparently going all the way. Just in case you’re worrying, I will be remaining fully clothed throughout the proceedings…I don’t think people need to be subjected to the harrowing image of me naked in public. Oh, it for charity too.

In other news, this melodic rock – Whalter – band aren’t bad (but not brilliant, either). You’ll notice on their website that they’ve just been in our union (The Rocket), which is nice. Unfortunately, I wasn’t there at the same time as them.

There are at least two anecdotes (one that makes me angry, one that made me almost wet myself with laughter) that I can’t, because of patient confidentiality. I think this will be one of THE most depressing things about being a doctor, having gazillions of fantastic stories that you can’t tell anyone 🙁

The desk I was sat at today for this morning’s lecture had “Wank Stain” written on it. Just thought that was pretty random.

And here’s a depressing closing thought…Amoung all the students at Durham University, we’re in a total of over £100,000,000 of debt. Great.
