|05:33 pm - punt!t00bage quick report|
Am having a lovely time at punt!t00bage so far. :-)
Pulled an all-nighter on Wednesday-to-Thursday night in order to get everything I needed to get done finished in time before I left; the journey down was acceptable, though hardly comfortable, with possibly ten minutes' sleep and a couple of bouts of reading-inspired mild travel-sickness. Arrived about ten minutes early and was met at the coach station by the lovely leiabelle and shortly afterwards the equally lovely (though rather more male) cygnusfap. I dragged my case to Cyg's palatial suite within University College - a more-than-acceptable living room, furnished with comfotable sofa and chairs, separate fridge, freezer, technically illegal microwave oven, infamous rice cooker and much more. The suite has its own separate little bedroom with sink, but the coolest thing about it is the pair of steps separating bedroom section from living area - plus an intenal door with stained glass windows. Quite possibly a contender for the title of the nicest undergraduate room in Oxford.
Ah, haven't got time for the full write-up. Thursday night: board games with non-t00bs. Friday: wandered round Oxford with leiabelle, games (You Don't Know Jack UK, Fandomopoly, Trivial Pursuit), desserts (hermorrine's ace Cheese Pie, best m00se ever), talking (dancingrain, expetesso), talking at night and not letting people get to sleep (mentioning no names). Saturday: some people have been to the pub and been punting. Introvert!t00b!me has had a lovely if slightly antisocial afternoon snoozing, having a lovely oak in zorac's long bath, listening to Challenge ?'s ace Saturday afternoon line-up (Gladiators, Interceptor, The Crystal Maze and Fort Boyard), checking e-mail, washing-up and not reading LJ.
Great fun, great company, great prospects for the rest of the weekend! Will try to write more fairly soon.
Current Mood: happy
Current Music: Challenge ?
Wow, sounds like you had a great time...
Did you happen to get my email regarding Nimbus 2k3? I've not gotten either a response or bounce, so...
Wow, sounds like it is great fun - you've certainly had the weather. Turns out when I quizzed my mum this morning that actually she thought she'd told me that I could go to Punt00bage, by which time it was too late :( such is life. Never the less, I've had a t00by day - played the Laurel and Hardy theme at band, mum bought me a snazzy end of exams present and tomorrow I'll be sitting at the country park fair all day promoting West Side Story with some of my best friends. Have a nice time the rest of thsi weekend.
P2 was mean and tricky, by the way *wibble*
That sounds like a great deal of fun, indeed! ;-)
Am looking forward to the full write-up some time mid next-week.

Spell check reliance
Risk: Taking notice of a spell checker to catch all your typos, rather than a manual check. If it's a word, spell check won't catch it, even if it's absurd or otherwise amusing in the context.

Re: Spell check reliance
On the other hand this is, after all, a t00bage and therefore it's not a given to rule out even the most bizarre of happenings.

Re: Spell check reliance
I solemnly vow to use this in a fic. No time constraints, please. :)
talking at night and not letting people get to sleep (mentioning no names).
1. We asked if you wanted us to shut up
2. You were also involved in the conversation
3. You managed to fall asleep anyway
