Sweaty Hugs All Round

After a short time to recover from the events of the weekend, we spent most of our time this week reviewing the success of the Promise Auction. We celebrated what we did well, and discussed what we didn’t do so well and suggested improvements ready to make next year’s event even better (oh yes, expect another!). A full report of the Promise Auction is now online for your enjoyment. Our highlights included Steph and James performing their duet, and the final total of £1200!

Random quote of the evening:

I go to sleep listening to Harry Potter – because I’m cool” – Sarah Putman

There wasn’t much else to report really as we didn’t even attempt to beat our current Volleyball Keepy Uppy record – preferring instead a mad, seemingly chocolate-fulled game of Unihoc. One or two people had to be warned about their over exuberant activity, and one person bowed out early after a particularly “enthusiastic” swipe (hope the bruises aren’t too bad Steph!).

Did any of you get caught out by any April Fools jokes this year? I know someone who was fooled by both the Flying Penguins and the Ice-Skating Greyhounds – yes it was early in the morning, but there’s really no excuse Tracy. And what about this prank – do you think the Cope’s would’ve been fooled by Laura‘s attempt? If you’re interested or looking for ideas for next year, find out what everyone else got up to this year.

The following all happened on April 1st:

  • 1891 – Wrigley Company founded
  • 1929 – Yo-yo invented
  • 1976 – Apple Computers formed
  • 1999 – UK Government introduced the Minimum Wage
    • although, of course, there is a special lower rate for young people (18-21) and a further lower rate for under 18s, making the use of the word “minimum” redundant and pointless
  • 2004 – Google launched Gmail

The evening ended with sweaty hugs all round as we said goodbye to another batch of Uni bods, and those who are off to Spring Harvest.

Next Week: as there are lots of people away at Spring Harvest next week we decided that the small group which is left will go Ten Pin Bowling at Mega Bowl. Please make sure you let me know by Sunday night if you’re coming and I’ll book a lane or two and organise transport.

End of Term Breakfast: Ikea – Tuesday 15th April – 9:30am – let me know if you need a lift.
