Irrelevant Degree Related Crap IV – Station Approach

Follow-up to Irrelevant Degree Related Crap III – Danger! from Hollyzone

For the non-Mancs out there Station Approach is the road leading from Piccadilly train station to the city centre and is, if you're a Cheshire resident on a day out to somewhere which isn't shit, the home straight on the journey. It's also a track on the new Elbow album which I want. Now. Not in September.

Anyway, one more exam and all my fears about this exam lark have pretty much some to nought. I've only done the blag* once. Hell, I've actually done some revision which is unprecedented and worked. Who'd have thought it? The only byproduct has been that as a result of the library time I now have an irrational loathing of silence and several unnecessarily expansive library doodles. Oh and a borderline addiction to caffiene (Red Bull) but I'm broke so I can go cold turkey on that quite easily. Anyway, this pseudo PDP crap is nicely cathartic and roll on Saturday when I've genuinely finished.

Pointless Aside.
There have been a couple of people on here recently complaining about people saying "haytch" not "aytch" for the letter h. I say "haytch" and I can assure you it is perfectly normal and correct… in Ireland. Cultural imports citizens. Tough luck really…

*Written the essay I wanted to write and then twisted the conclusion to make it look like I was answering the question which was actually set.

  1. Ah, Station Approach… it's 11 years since I lived in Manchester but when I come out of Piccadilly and walk down there I always think to myself "I'm back home!!" I love Manchester!

  2. I love Manchester too. And Elbow. I'm going seeing Elbow soon too. Yay!

    Hey Holly! Finish those pesky exams and get yourself out again. We need you and that mouth of yours!

    Always thought it was spelt "aitch" if indeed it ever needed to be spelt. How do the Irish spell the rest of the alphabet? One for post-exams maybe.

  7. I'm from Manchester and I hardly ever use Station Approach. The bus is much cheaper even if it does take an hour to get in. It's also cheaper than the bus into Stockport, which only takes 20 minutes. Different companies have different price schemes, and Stagecoach are screwing the consumer again.

  8. David Wouldn't mind using the old buses but there aren't any in Cheshire's delightful bitch towns. Do our uni student passes work on the Manc Stagecoachs I wonder. They should, we give them enough of our time, patience and cash to justify it.
    Gloria Tomorroooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow! You?

  10. Quoting Holly, reply 8: "Do our uni student passes work on the Manc Stagecoachs I wonder?"

    Unfortunately not. Tried it on Stagecoach Chesterfield when I'm back at home. If you look on the back, it says something about only being valid in Warwick, Leamington, Nuneaton and Bedworth or something. The driver in Chesterfield had never even heard of them.

  11. Hey Holly, what's the deal with the crazy favourites categories? I'm hungry and intrigued… though the hunger may be unrelated.

  12. Food is good, indulge in it. I find it allays hunger (I am hungry). As for the favourites categories… I was bored, but I can assure you that when I lived in Cheshire there were bats living in the roofs but here I have not seen any therefore I must conclude that there are more bats up north.

  13. Not many bats around Stockport. Not even in the belfry. We did used to have a pigeon problem (it makes an interesting noise when you hit a pigeon with a church bell, and it isn't particularly good for the pigeon), but that's been sorted out now.
