On a much better topic for research than the one I currently have

One of the benefits of being a LS flunkie, especially at the start of the semester, is the many free food type occasions one gets to attend. Well, strictly-speaking, as a flunkie, I'm not exactly invited but most of the time people are too polite to actually enquire as to who I am and what I'm doing there. Tonight's dinner featured a menu of salmon-on-sticks (small pink fishy bits on satay sticks), crab cakes, chocolate cake and a group of people inexplicably keen to talk to me.

Maybe it was the level of sound in the room (high) or my accent (often dodgy) but apparently a few of the people I was talking to heard me saying I was conducting research on "Northern Ireland and the pub". Wishful thinking, probably. Also, someone else went there and did that already.

Oh please! And, what DO they teach you lot at that posh college of yours? Not spelling, apparently.
