Procrastination, Cider and Self–raising Ballistics.
It's now the christmas 'holidays' and I have my final year project Interim Report to write and so I thought I'd update my blog instead. I'll get around to starting eventually… probabaly.
Since I last posted, a lot's happened. A few weeks ago a lot of people I knew who grauated last year and the year before came up for a big reunion sort of thing. I met them at 14:00 with the intention of moving into the Graduate for the night at 17:00. As it turned out the graduate didn't open until 19:00, apparently they were understaffed or something. Then we discover that the School Days event that night is including the graduate, which was annoying since I thought the whole point is to keep the Graduate seperate for people who don't want to go to the big events. As it happened we found a way to stay there after it got included and so unintentionally I was in school days. I had no interest in going to it what so ever and it amused me that while I don't go to the union at all really this year I was in the only event that half my other friends, who do go a lot wanted to go to but couldn't get it. Hah!
Anyway, a few pints of Strongbow and quite a few pints of Old Rosie (the scrumpy cider they serve up there) later and I have to say I was really quite pissed. It is 7.4% or something stupid and I hadn't really drunk much since the end of september. Well, it was a good night had by all of us, also helped by the fact that the single graduate bar man was my housemate from last year and owes me some money, always good when you don't want to queue up for a drink!
Two weeks later we held the Gliding Club's first ever inter-university competition. It basically involved dropping packs of flour out of a open cockpit glider onto a target on the airfield. Sounds easy enough until you consider the glider is 300' in the air doing 101mph. It was supposed to be us against Loughborough and Coventry but Cov didn't turn up so was just us and Loughborough. It was a a really fun day and certinaly somethig a little different.
He has also written up the september course, where we made the big gliding video this year and was generally hilarious throughout: September Course
