Abandon ship


in Daily updates, Oxford

One helpful fact to know is that if you lock your deadbolt and leave the key in the lock on the inside, it is probably impossible for anyone to come in and evict you. Technically, I was meant to move out this morning. In practice, I doubt anyone from the college is out enforcing rules on a Sunday. Alex and Kai are already gone, and I am trying to deal with the mass of food, random stuff, and dirty dishes that has been left behind.

Anyone in Oxford who wants some food, random stuff, kitchen supplies, office supplies, etc should come by 2 Church Walk ASAP. Anyone who takes a significant amount gets a free bottle of wine (while supplies last). This must be what headlong military retreats are like, when you abandon large amounts of equipment that you otherwise would not as a result of being propelled by larger circumstances.

PS. Happy Canada Day!

There must be some charity shops in Oxford that will take some of this stuff.

I’m heading up to St Hugh’s this evening, but don’t know if I’ll have time to call in. If I don’t see you again then goodbye and good luck in all you do.

It is extremely unlikely that your college will do anything to you today.

Enjoy your last few hours in Oxford.

Some good news: the smoking ban is on

I forgot to say happy Canada day. I did say bye to Rob for you though. Thanks again for the stuff.
