El Supremo Presidente: Dan Waldron – welsh dude and leader of the merry band of chemists
Academic President: Stefan Bon – the Bonmeister! What more can be said about the dutchman?

Secretary: Lara-jane Pegg – solid rock of the meetings and a hoodie advocate
Social Sec: Mikey Brown – senior undergrad and Atomic bowling guru
Social Under Secretary: Alex Haywood – no puns intended with her job title; Alex in her spare time away from her degree is a full time socialite
Treasurer: Alex Hough – sound bloke; never trusted his seven golden rules for the economy however…
Secretary to the Treasurer: Amy Hewison- wins the award for the longest job title – Alex's partner in crime in oh so many ways…
Saftey Officer: Lee Burton – Saftey, it's in the name?
Sports Officer: Jack Sleigh – Atomic Allstar star, and general sports guru
External Relations: Will Mitchell – Thesbian and allround method actor – now studying for part of hobo
Atomic Ball Co-ordinators: Suzanne Partridge and Helen Playford – bring style and elegance to the Atomic exec (someone's got to!)
PhD Representatives: Lewis Mark and Matt Gill – both fountains of knowledge and hardcore chemists
Brass Officer: Matt Cooper – wins the award for oddest exec title -brings his musical society experiences and vast enthusiasm to point out where we are going truly wrong!
Fresher Reps: Lisa Hawkes and Tommy Precious – fresh faced, young, eager and utterly butterly mad for joining Atomic exec within a week…

What society gives you more fun, frollics and better government?

That's right… none other than Atomic!

Tom – "Atomic is gonna be bigger than the Beatles!"

P.S. For those of you with no Musical education "The Beatles" were a pop/rock group from the 1960s and were occasionally quite popular…

  1. Good grief. Is there anyone studying chemisty who's not on the exec? ;-)

  2. Admittedly it is on the large side… and with quite a few excellent titles, but we do have all these wonderful events to organise! The side effect is Dan and Stefan have more minions! :-)

    It's FREE!!! (As long as you've joined the Societies Federation!)

  4. And your description of yourself is quite accurate! ;)

    And this…

    "Alex's partner in crime in oh so many ways…"

    I think Amy might just want to kill you!

    21 Oct 2005, 20:58

  5. There's links and instructions to join atomic at: go.warwick.ac.uk/atomic home page…

    Amy can't kill me since I have the powers of a Time Lord and Wizard (and also a drunk swine), meaning I can't die… And she is one of my padawan learners too! Who ever heard of a Padawan killing their Master? :-)

  6. Style and elegance, eh? You obviously don't know Suzy very well (ducks under inevitable rotten vegetables that are now flying my way!) Ahem, anyway…
    Tom…you are so not a Thomas…I can't imagine you as a Thomas, it's all wrong!!! Arg!
    Also, Max… shut it you ;) We are a small and elite bunch, dontcha know?!

    21 Oct 2005, 23:05

  7. Well I'm Thomas A A Oliver (I'll let you ponder what the middle names are)... I adopted Tom as of about age twelve to reflect my "cheeky loveable scamp" nature… My Mum only calls me Thomas now when I'm about to get a telling off/lecture!

    As for recieving rotten vegetables being thrown at you – I don't think you'll have a monopoly on that one after everyone has discovered this entry!

  8. Hey max – think i agree, have to hope there are enough indians to outnumber all the chiefs! hehe

    22 Oct 2005, 10:54

  9. Matt you were right I am gonna kill Thomas!! What do you mean by "Alex's partner in crime in oh so many ways…" Alex was another of your "padawan learners" and I think he may have something to say on the matter!!

    22 Oct 2005, 12:10

  10. Well… it was meant in the sense you both always seem to be out on the piss together and causing havoc in labs together, nothing more nothing less… just said in a tongue in cheek way… (may be the "oh so many ways" was a bridge too far- and I was referring to Alex Haywood when I said partners in crime… I've just realise about t'other Alex- and this the "doublet doublet" entendre- d'oh).

    If anyone want's to be Vice President of Atomic, applications on the back of a matchbox are all that's needed! Verbal agreements are also contractual…

    N.B. All applicants must realise that general dogsbody is the main of the work.

    22 Oct 2005, 12:19

  11. Well it could be either alex as when i get pissed they're both normally there!! (getting drunk too!!)

    Atomic – more popular than Physoc

  13. My blog is finally back from the abyss of F105… roll on rotten vegetables!

  14. Stefan Bon

    The mass email has been sent out…let the counting begin. The response on indians and chiefs is an interesting one, as i have not seen any exec member dressed with feathers…mind you one of our chiefs did invite "trolley-dolly" the inflatable sheep along…Will the sheep appear in leamington spa? or is its energy deflated as a result of binge drinking? I guess we will find out next tuesday…(week 6)

  15. On the note of Cowboys and Indians, any ideas for the Atomic Themed Party?

    24 Oct 2005, 18:23

  16. Tom, I love all the comments, they're really funny!

    26 Oct 2005, 12:10
