Bits & Bobs

On Saturday there was a RaW OB (Outside Broadcast) for the Uni open day. We had 3 shows live on air from the piazza and then the Wind Orchestra and Rev (Revelation Rock Gospel Choir) performed and I played some music while they were setting up and afterwards. It was quite fun but I did get sunburnt on the back of my neck and my forearms.

Later that evening I went to a pub in Cov with Ian where I helped him drink some of the 8 free pints that he had won in the pub quiz. We then went onto Jumpin Jaks. I’ve never been to a Jaks before, we have one in Maidstone but I never went to it. It’s slightly different to what I was expecting and has really over-priced drinks (>£3.30 per bottle & £3.10 for a pint of coke) but was quite a fun night.

We left at about 2:30am, Ian got a taxi back to campus and I walked home via a chip shop. I got in at about 3 and then didn’t get up again ‘til midday. ‘Twas a good night.

This morning I woke up to what sounded like someone bouncing a ball agains the wall next door. It just kept going “ba-dum” every few seconds, the stopping for a bit and then starting again. When I was a bit more awake I noticed that I coincided with cars going past the front of the house.

It turns out that they have put one of those traffic survey things in the road just outside the house. You know the sort, one of the things with 2 rubber pipes across the road. Now everytime a car goes past I can hear it go “ba-dum” over the pipes. As soon as the recorder has gone I’m going to go out there are remove those pipes any way I can.

Ken and I have managed to organise a time to go and see James and Fi in Southamton this weekend, and then next weekend I’m going home for a few birthday celebrations.

Anyways, the new guy in our house is arriving tomorrow so I need to be awake when he arrives :) Night all.
