|09:19 pm - Well, that was different.|
So, today there was a black-out at Uni.
As in, during the middle of the day, most of the power at Uni miraculously just... died. No idea why (though I wonder if that building they are demolishing might have some connection).
And where was I the very moment the lights all went out?
...At the toilet. YA, RLY.
Of course, naturally I didn't actually get to enjoy any of the advantages of said blackout, what with my Research Methods tute being in the Redmond Barry building, which naturally was completely fine during said blackout.
Not like, say, the Chem students, whose entire building got evacuated because the fume cabinets stopped working.
...And that was my excitement for the day. The rest of it consisted of getting my extension form (So I have til next Monday to complete that assignment), and Star Trek Club, which consisted of watching an episode of Stargate, and (as always) some Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged, which is as funny as ever.
And now for something completely different: Yet another update to the unending Harry Potter Lexicon wank
Current Mood: surprised
*is one of said chem students*
It was actually quite funny to start off with. All the lights went out and an alarm started going off, but nobody did anything. The demonstrators just kept going in the dark. Then a slightly louder alarm started going off, and they suddenly realised we were probably going to die from the fumes of whatever the other groups were preparing, and that we should probably get out of there.
Then once we were outside an even louder alarm went off and we got pushed further away from the building.
I was wandering past on my way to my tute, and I saw the evacuated crowd.
As I said to someone, I'd never seen so many people in labcoats at the same spot before.
