Kids These Days

Yes, the princess will eventually write something serious again.

And no, it probably won't be this morning. Such are the aftereffects of too many hours spent staring at boring software data:

Officially, the incident has been filed as a common assault, but such a description doesn't begin to cover the events which led to Cambridge University student Nadia Witkowski being given a police caution.

The scene of the crime was Trinity Old Field, overlooking the famous Backs, where students including Miss Witkowski, 23, gathered to celebrate the end of their final exams on what is traditionally known as "Suicide Sunday".

As befits one of the world's great crucibles of learning, the organisers of the Blazers and Bikinis party had laid on a jelly-wrestling competition in a 6ft paddling pool, with a £250 first prize up for grabs.

..."She went mad and punched a girl dressed as a butterfly standing at the edge of the crowd. Blood gushed from her nose. Then she grabbed a bottle of Lambrini and tried to escape.

"Security would not let her out of the grounds with alcohol so she punched one guard and butted another. They had to restrain her. She was still in her white bikini, all covered in jelly."

And the rest, as they say, is history.

Maybe she should have studied math.

If she'd gone for the Chateauneuf du Pape, they'd probably have let her go.

Sounds like she might be more of a Champipple connoisseur.

This reminded me of my college dorm's epic grain jello parties.

...or what little I recall of them :p

Thank goodness it was cold up there, or there's no telling what kind of idiocy we would have gotten up to. As it was, we mainly did dumb things like having toboggan races down 4 flights of stairs. Now that I think of it, I can't believe no one ended up in the hospital.

Or in jail.
