Since my last entry, had an uneventful few days at college, doing reading/homework etc.

On Thursday, went into college for dance class, which was slightly delayed due to a fire alarm - unusually, there actually seemed to be a real fire this time. Anyway, once it got started, it went well - I'm certainly getting much more confident with the steps (waltz this week). Then onto Magic in the library, and back home.

Kudos to sulkyblue for passing her driving test yesterday :)

So far today, I've been vaguely productive, by putting my "Friends" videos up for sale on Ebay.

On a related note (of getting rid of stuff), I've unearthed my old pager. I never use it anymore (now that I have a mobile phone), so that's up for grabs free of charge to anyone who wants it. There are no monthly fees or anything, so it just costs about 3 quid a year to keep it supplied with batteries.

Fire alarms

They were weird! (For the benefit of non-IC people, you have a normal alarm bell alternating with speech.) It took me about 10 minutes to actually make out what the speech was saying, since it was kind of muffled. Turned out to be "For your own safety, please evacuate the building." As opposed to, "for your own safety, don't stick your head round the door trying to work out what this recording says" :) The alarm in the JCR stopped at one point, but then started again when I went inside, so I don't know if that was a coincidence, or if they're connected to motion sensors somehow...
