if you do ever happen perchance to dine at Wadham college, Oxford, PLEASE do appreciate the way the sauce packets line up face forwards in every bowl (6 of each and 3 of the vinegar); the perfectly aligned lamps; the buffed glasses; the meticulously layed cutlery 1mm from the table edge; the spotless mats and the wiped down benches and all the other details that i'm sure no one would notice yet please know that before every meal much time is spent ensuring NOTHING is out of place. and spare a thought for the waiters/waitresses who under the extremely (slightly OCD-ed?) eye of the hall managers learn exactly how to place each item on the table only to immediately have everything corrected.

im back there at 7:30 tomorrow morning.
