All eyes on ULIP today as Freshers and buddies descended upon its high-ceilinged halls. Some early drama with the Parlons team who through a heroic effort incurred by their own relative lack of organisation, managed to edit, compile and print most of the Fresher's Guide in 2 short hours. After a talk from the Dean (he did the bit where he talks in French then back in to English, which still manages to be funny), we were on our way, metroing off to all corners of Paris with groups visiting as far afield as la Mosquée, the Canal Saint-Martin and the Bois de Boulogne (pictures will follow later in the week!).
We then made our way over to 25 Est on the Place de Stalingrad, with its beautiful view over the beginnings of the Canal and a setting sun, it was sufficiently pretty to merit a wide range of clichés, which you're welcome to detail in the comments below. A delicious meal ensued, with pasta for the veggies and nice chunk of beef for the carnivores. A good time was had by all. Well, at least most, I didn't really carry out a survey.
Next stop Room 106 tomorrow evening for the ULIP Pub Games Society to delight, inform and entertain us with its Pub Quiz.
See you there,
P.s. If you'd like to buy tickets, I'll be around uni tomorrow and will be able to hook you up.
The Big Fat Quiz of The Year was a huge success. It took place in the canteen on Thursday 19th January and was expertly written by Tom Gardner, John Helm, George Bagguley and Joe Lennard. The quiz was hosted by Charlie Moore - a few funny jokes, but on the whole his humour (as per usual) was more miss than hit. The quizzers went straight from the event to the Hideout in Bastille, where the quiztivities continued until late. Keep your eyes peeled for future canteen events!
