Thought it was time I actually bothered to write in this thing. I used to be so good at keeping it up to date, but I guess I got lazy. So it's been about two months since I properly updated, and I can't be bothered trying to remember everything that's happened, so I guess I'll stick to the basics.
On Wednesday I went to Bangor for a few days, which was ace. Got there about 4ish, headed the pub (due to a mix up where Matt said he was in Menai, and I read it as The Menai. Still, any excuse for a piss up!). Me, Matt, Jamie and Alex went Trash that night, and all got fairly hammered. We drank cocktails, met a boy called Marilyn and danced to the same random shite they always play in Trash (right down to the last song, nothing's changed). It was ace! Afterwards, Matt was told he was banned for six months for trying to sneak his pint out, I demanded one of lecari's housemates got her home safe and then was taught to waltz by a pretty boy outside Late Stop. We went to Matt's for hotdogs, and finally got home after telling Alex "I wanna go home..." while falling down a kerb. Classy girly I am.
Side point, I just got firefox (because myspace stopped working on my IE) and it's pissing me off! It keeps putting a stupid little red line underneathe all the words it says I got wrong. Fuck off!
Anyway, I woke up on Thursday with a monster hangover. Not had one of those in quite some time, and I was quite happy with that. I was supposed to be hiding in Grace's bedroom with the door locked because Dragon Lady was coming round and they didn't want her to see Grace's room, coz the zoo was being stored in there for the occasion. Of course, my stomach wasn't aware of this, and after lying in bed for about 40minutes trying my best to keep very very still until she left, I couldn't anymore and had to be sick, so became covert ops running to the toilet and then up to Alex's room and then down to Jamie's to wait it out till she finally pissed off. An hour and a bloody half she was there! Bleh! After she left I went and passed out back down in Grace's room for a while until Jamie phoned at 2ish to see if I wanted to go to lunch. So me, Alex and what we assumed was Alex's friend went down to Varsity to meet Jamie, Craig and Kerrie for something to eat. After sharing many many stories from our years together and going shopping with her, Kate, the 'friend', left to go home. At which point Alex turned round and said "you wouldn't think I only met her 20 minutes before we got to the pub, would you?". Oh Alex...
Thursday night we went to the pub and then headed to the standing stones for poi-ness. Claire missed teh pretty fiiiire! The smell of paraffin is pretty much synonymous with uni, for me. We'd started off at Main Arts doing it, and as soon as we walked up to the building we could smell it. Made me all happy. But the Bangor Uni security types came over and whinged that we didn't have permission to play there, so we walked down to the standing stones to carry on. Stop off at the offy for lots and lots of "cheap lager" later, and a pick up of a guitar, we were all set. Matt took his tripod down and got some really pretty pictures. And Sas was there too, who I've not seen in aaages. Met the new mister too! He seems nice, which he better bloody be! Think we stayed there till about 2am, when our fingers started to turn to ice, so we headed back to the house to carry on in the basement (I keep writing "our basement" and things. it's my house, not Luke's!) for sing-along stuffs and more drinking. One hammered Jamie later, there's been arguing for about an hour over a little video clip and Jay had threatened to give Luke a Glasgow Kiss. And I met Derek the Mushroom!
Friday I went shopping as most people seemed to have lectures. Bought all kinds of random crap (Pendulum CDs, Doctor Who soundtrack and magazine - geek or what?! - Moulin Rouge DVD, other stuff), and then went to KFC with Jamie for lunch, though neither of us ate much; he had a hangover to equal mine from the day before, and I had a hot chocolate from Costa that was so big, the cup came with two handles. I wanted the cup, but I don't think there's a subtle way to rob something that massive. That night, Jamie's mate from home, Skiv, was coming up, so we waited for him to get up and then the three of us went down to the Harp to meet Kerrie and Craig. Cheap as fuck shots in there! So many minging double vodka and lemonades later, we staggered home to wait for people to arrive at the house, as we had told many people to come round for old-school drinking games. What we didn't count on was two knobhead girls showing up and pissing us all off. They were Alex's mates, so we couldn't say anything to them, but they were annoying us all so much. A few of us (as in, most of us) had to go the shop in the end to escape them. I seriously wanted to punch them. They kept on nearly leaving, but then changing their mind and staying longer. Was cruel to taunt us like that! Think they got the hint when me, Jamie, Matt, Skiv and Julian sat down in the basement singing "Show Me The Way to Go Home". Subtle as a brick, us. Eventually we all headed to bed around 4am-ish.
Saturday I had to come home. Which sucked. But I was in work at The Crown at 8, so I didn't have a choice. Just wish I could stay there with them. Miss them all loads. Will hopefully get the pics off Matt soon and get them uploaded.
Anyway, what else have I been up to? Had a fun night in the Kray last week with Jenni and her mates, which was ace. Was sitting in the house at about 10pm, figured I was in for the night. An hour later I was on a train going into Liverpool. They played Pendulum. Threeee times! I danced like a twat and tired myself out, then got my energy back in time for all the emo crap. Think I'm too old for that place. All the boys seemed really young and I just couldn't be bothered standing up and dancing that long anymore. There was fun and games when some idiot barman hid Jenni's friends' coats behind the speakers on K2, but we got to laugh at the other prettier barman trying to fish them out and took pictures. We gave him £8 to say thankyou though, so he can't moan too much. Stayed till the end, which I've not done in a while. I always forget how small, crappy and purple that place is when the lights come up. Still, after two bottles of high class Fastini, I was suitably wasted, and had had a damn good night. Think we're going again a week on Saturday, which should be fuuun.
Ooooh, also, Claire's going to see Rocky Horror again! This time I'm going as Trixie (Usherette), which is gonna be a bit of a change for me. Just bought my dress off ebay. Might be a bit small, but incentive to finally get thinner! I've already got my torch, it's sitting here next to me. Oh yeah, I'm gonna be teh bestest Trixie evaaar =D
Anyway, just to finish, let's take a look at how cute Charlie is:
