Oxford at Random

[Tuesday 17th August]
I couldn't face staying in this evening, so on a whim I decided to head off on the train to Oxford for a bit of a wander round - by myself if necessary. As it happened this didn't turn out to be necessary, as Gav at very short notice came to the rescue and assisted me in drinking far more than either of us needed to on a school night. We started off in the Antiquities Hall, then headed onto the always excellent Turf Tavern, until we were turfed out (boom boom!) at closing time. We rounded the evening off somewhat randomly in a place called the Baby Bar (I think) which was apparently having a gay night, and was surprisingly entertaining. I learnt the Portugese word for men's genitalia, which I am convinced will be vitally useful at some stage in later life (should I ever suffer a zip fastener injury whilst holidaying on the Iberian peninsula, for example). I've often maintained that unplanned nights out are frequently the best nights out, and this was a good case in point.
