Bits

Waiting for another workman who promised to arrive at 9.30.
It's 10.30
Then it's Xmas shopping with prof
Then it's his works dinner
Nose to nipple with  academics
Hey ho

  1. Do academics have "works dinners"? I guess they don oily overalls and safety helmets, simplify their vocabularies and drink foaming pints of ale before heading to the nearest strip club. You'll have fun when the conga dancing starts.

  3. I have been to a few nurses' Christmas parties - they are a bit more wild than academics I would imagine.

  18. Some academics must be worth knowing, after all the Prof is one :)

  19. You may have said so in the past and I just missed it, but what is the Prof a professor of?

  20. I'm sure you will have had a lovely time, as if you met any condescending academics you will have enjoyed dragging them down to your superior blowsy level. Good for you if you did.

  21. Have UK universities cut back on the quality of the catering for staff functionstoo? Stingy now, the good stuff is saved for the administrators!!

  22. Uf. Did lots of those nose-to-nipples events (although I never knew that's what they were called). Didn't enjoy many (any?) of them.
