who's coming to watch it?
boozing by the river? always good.
I'm taking a bunch of German tourists to London Zoo.
does anyone know if Pete Reed still rows for Oxford? He went to my school, he was well strong (and somewhat hot). He used to run up hills with rocks in his backpack and lift me up with one hand.
urm....... don't know.
I think he went on to become Desperate Dan
website doesn't mention him in Oxford's squad for this year.
but he's going to the Olympics, wowser!
I love how they make up fake qualifications just to get in people who are excellent at rowing, he didn't go to Oxford originally!
he has a great name AND coxes the ladies' boat.
being a cox is brilliant, you just need to be small and shout. I could do that.
wtf?! he sounds like some kind of superman!
apparently he was in our local paper recently for rescuing someone from a burning building. I swooned a bit.
to be honest i have no idea what time anything is starting.....
i need a time tho!
be crowded, and i don't really care?
on a *hopefully* nice day?
my all day drinking for sunday..
in Mortlake. Not sure if I'm going this year yet.
because there's usually lots of free food. I love free food.
if those ducks are too slow it's their problem.
and there are some awesome pubs down that way. (hammersmith)
thats funny cos just the other day in the pub i was remarking to my best mate and i think klaire, that we should go to that.
drinking, sunshine and fit posh rowing boys! mmmm
totally giving this a miss.
take the piss out of scarily posh people that for once aren't in dublin. haha yay!
polo shirts, pearls, fred perry and loads of khaki ahoy!
i just realised this is also the day of shadyadies alldayer!
and jack wants me to be home this weekend bum.
whose going to the alldayer and when is easter day?!
isn't brainlove having a thing on friday too?
in the evening.
one did physics and maths and was sound, the other was star of the drama club and referred to as adonis by the girls in it. he had an 8 pack which is 33.3% better than a six pack.
too tonk is not attractive
it did nothing for me. he was a decent actor though.
99% of the people involved in it were utter tonks.
were the same people.
just because they are all act the same and look the same doesn't mean they are the same! i thought better of you, daniel.
Are there any pubs in which the watching of this race combined with the wearing of a lot of tweed is acceptable? I want to go and watch it, but not in a trendy bar. I want to find the most Old Man Pub of all Old Men's Pubs. Preferably with a bellyvision that also displays it.
there are loads and loads of pubs. proper pubs.
proper pubs though! like, with.... mahogany.
and old men?
have you been to the pubs down there? they're really nice.
tel me now:
what am i wearing?
can i wear shorts?
(how does one define sexy legs other than 'strapping thighs' ? )
ever since i joined Bath Uni boat club and basically got ignored because i was a novice...didn;t even get on water.
and i dont live near, so no.
i've been told yes, but i have no judgement on my own legs.
I hope they all drown.
and ive decided that i dont like oxford students. admittedly, that puts me in a difficult position, but still...
when did you decide that?
i just did. in general, oxford students are annoying. there are plenty that arent, but generally... :p
the race starts at 4.30, that should give me enough time to sober up and deal with my assumed hangover before making my way to London and starting again.
at the moment the weather looks like it'll be ok too. yay! bank holiday weekend!!
