Now, being the stubborn tard you are, since you're still up at 4:30 after a lot of inner monologue for and against watching AO, effectively a hour away from dawn, crawl up to a chair and somehow slither upward on it and then walk turtle back with the chair to the TV. Do it slothfully, like a turtle. Optionally, you could also have positioned your chair/sofa next to the TV the previous night itself, with the foresight of a beaver, or if you are willing to sit with your butt kissing the floor till the Sun smiles over New York, you need not follow the first two suggestions.

In any case, so now you are near the screen and much like Bugs Bunny pulls a carrot out of his ass, you conjure your headphones out of nowhere and plug them into the TV. You do this before you switch it on to prevent him/her/it from waking up.

Then you gape at the scoreline like a barn owl: Olderer's two sets down to Benny in a 2nd round match. You throw caution to the wind and panic, 'Woo-hoo-tu-wita-woo!' Your roomie's up and you end up watching AO together anyways.

So I came on this forum and at those times (morning and early afternoon), it was pretty dead so I started reading some chat threads, somehow led to me opening some Filo_V thread and having a good laugh over it.

So a week goes by and some member of staff picks me out of one of my lectures and shows me prints of the stuff I had been viewing, not to surprise me most were Filo_V posts of lets just say 'inappropriate' stuff, I felt so embarrassed I didn't really know what to say and was trying to convince her it was only a tennis forum and she could check for herself. Took a while but she didn't do anything in the end thankfully.
OMG I'm sorry that happened to you, but still funny that it was Filo's posts.

Ah I see. My lectures are in huge rooms where I'm barely noticed anyway, so I'm almost always online. My parents are paying, so it'd be a bit bad to stay in bed every morning, I just go to uni and use my laptop to avoid boredom for the most part during lectures
