Details of swap:
Transport yourself back to London, 1977. When punk was proper dirty and proper noisy. Tartan, safety pins and binbags are where it's at - none of your pop-punk nonsense, your razorblade necklaces from Claire's accessories, your sit-down gigs. Time to bring it back, kids...real punk attitude.
God save the Queen.

For this swap you can ask for - and make - whatever you like. Punk doesn't have rules, man. Except, as a guide - it's one small, one medium and one large item. But don't let me hold you back - feel free to negotiate with your partner on this. Pop a note with your questionnaire if you want to do a particularly large or small swap.
If you're in, fill this in and send it to the organiser:

ATTENTION ALL LURKERS: I AM IN THE UK AND PANTS AT MATHS!!!!
THIS MEANS THAT I WILL BE CLOSING APPLICATIONS AT MIDNIGHT GMT OF 2ND OCTOBER (THIS TUESDAY). PLEASE GET ALL APPLICATIONS IN BY THIS TIME AS I WANT TO GET PARTNERS DONE SUPER-SPEEDILY BECAUSE I KNOW WE'RE ALL REALLY KEEN TO GET GOING.
WITH ANY LUCK I WILL BE ABLE TO GET EVERYONE PARTNERED UP BY MIDDAY ON WEDNESDAY.
I am also burried deep in a 4500 word essay that I've not even started typing up and which has to be in on Monday, so I may be a bit difficult to get hold of for a couple of days. But I will be back and fully functioning by the time the swapping gets started - I promise. Does anyone know anything about James Joyce?!
