Angry Little Men: A Response

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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.
