The report of my death was an exaggeration…

Current track: Roni Size/Reprazent – Railing

Fairly bizarre events on Monday, when I came home (well, back to my hall) to find that a few of my friends seemed to beleive I had died. All because – shock horror – I had actually gone to lectures and stayed on campus for the rescheduled MMW class. They had been banging down my door, going outside to peer through my window and calling my phone to ascertain if I was actually alive.

Slightly more disconcerting was that Rachel, Luke and Nabeel had also been thinking about the method of my death. Apparently I'm the suicidal type (I get the feeling that was determined pretty early on in the process), and so ideas had been settled on for both the motive and style in which I had topped myself. The most popular one by far was hanging, by scarf. Of course, I'd be immaculately turned out (huh?) so as to ensure minimal fuss for the undertakers. Motive? That I'd had an argument with KK and now my life was not worth living…
This may be odd enough, but wait, there's more. If the scarf/KK model was perhaps not on the money, the other suggestions included

  • sleeping pill overdose – again, minimal fuss and mess
  • something involving a complicated system of mirrors and pulleys – which only actually killed me when someone burst through my door to see if I was OK (oh, the delicious 'irony')
    and all because
  • I was having a bad hair day
  • I was having a bad scarf day
  • I was having a bad hair/scarf day – this seemed to be the worst thing that they could ever imagine could happen to me

All in all, it was quite odd. I suppose it's nice to know that your mates seem to care about you that much, but still… planning the events of your suicide? Hmmm…

Whilst on the subject of odd things, I also learnt over the weekend that Adam and Rachel were having a 'contest' to see who I would choose to live with. I didn't know whether to flattered or kind of scared. Due to various factors, it looks like I may be with Adam instead of Rachel, but things are never totally decided. I am actually quite worried about next year; the uni seems to be putting a lot of indirect pressure on us to get out choices sorted for next year now despite the advice of the SU. I don't want to live in a grotty little hole, but then I wonder if by next term all the good places will have been allocated…

Anyways: it's 5:25AM, KK has gone, I'm tired, and going to bed

    the good places aren't necessarily put out by the uni/landlords first

  2. I've always found that death is highly overrated.
