veerthetiguy: Taxi, September 21st

Can anyone split a taxi with me on this September 21st? My flight arrives at around 4.35pm in Edinburgh, and St. Andrews direct isn't going to make enough money off of me so they said they wouldn't take me except unless it was for 50 pounds. Can anyone help me out if you're headed to st. andrews around teh same time? Thanks

tobyaw: Post Office into W H Smith?

It looks like W H Smith may be taking over the running of the Post Office in the centre of St Andrews, along with others across the country.

I’m not sure whether this is a good or bad idea. I don’t like the South Street Post Office much — they never seem to have enough staff on, and I usually go to the Pipeland Road one instead.

If we get shorter queues and longer opening hours, maybe the deal will be a good thing.

Does anyone know if any of the hairdressers in St Andrews do hair extensions (as in a full head, not just a few "decorative" ones)?

tobyaw: Stinky Subway smell

As I wandered along Market Street the other day, I was struck by the smell on the street corner outside Subway. I found it rather unpleasant. But there were people queuing out of the door, so I guess they weren't put off by the stench.

So tell me - does Subway smell nice or nasty to you? Or is there somewhere else in St Andrews that smells worse?

mrs_rakshasa: In defence of Melville....

Sorry, responding to an earlier post aboutMelville. As an ex-melvillite it did have some good points. For one it was that hideous that everyone developed a blitz spirit and it had a really nice community atmosphere that was lacking in New Hall etc. Rather than being built along a corridor - they were built into cosy blocks of 4. Made it easy to be sociable. Plus the rooms are awesome. I mean most residence rooms are boxes - Melville was very non euclidian. It does cool things to your head.

My husband spent 4 years there. He loved the place. In fact on our recent trip to St Andrews we even took our kids there.

Incidently the same architect designed Cumbernauld town centre so it could have been a hell of a lot worse. Mind you I believe he committed suicide after seeing Melville. Still the uni are doing a good job of covering it up with trees. Melville and not his suicide.

This is a bit of a long shot, but does anyone happen to have any old records lying around that are too scratched to ever play again?

I'm looking to make a few crafty things with records, and the charity shops had plenty to spare, but I had a bit of a guilt attack that I'd cut up some rarity that was secretly worth a fortune.

It doesn't matter what genre of music the records are, just as long as they're not already broken into pieces, they'd be perfect for me. I'd be able to spare a few quid if required, and could meet anywhere in town to pick them up. I'm looking for full sized records, and I wouldn't need any more than 4, even if you have one single unplayable record, that'd do for me!

Thanks in advance!

Incase any of you are well travelled (in, errr, Fife)

My Mum's off to hospital in Dunfermline again from Sunday. Being unable to drive, I'm going to be relying on public transport to go see her. I've taken the train to Queen Margaret before and it's easy peasy, but I'm just wondering if there's some kind of season ticket or similar I could get for travel between Leuchars and Dunfermline Queen Margaret? It's £8 cheap day return with my young person's railcard, and my Mum's looking at a week's stay in there. That's a bit painful. I know Scotrail do that 10 journey flexipass, but they seem to just be things like Edinburgh-Aberdeen, I have no idea if there's any flexibility. Would the Union's student travel office know?

Also, is there some kind of season ticket for the bus to Leuchars? That one's £3.40 return, which isn't terrible except when it's every single day. Any kind of weeny reduction would be amazing. I don't see me getting many/any lifts to the hospital as it's far too far out of everyone I know's way. Bah.

Well, thanks in advance!

I have a pair of Dr Marten boots, black, size 6, worn only twice (and then only for a short time), that need a good home. Is there anybody out there who would like to take them for a small donation, say £15.

celinafairy: A couple questions :D

Hi there :) I'm a German student and I was wondering whether I should maybe go to study in the UK and I thought St. Andrews was a cool option. But then, you don't get much inside info on the school's homepage and stuff and I wanted to ask if anyone would write a bit about the university, like... how hard is it really to make it and how's student life and if people are friendly or if it's rather hard to fit in, how the living conditions are and so on... I'd be really grateful. ^__^
Thanks
