OK there was a huge turn out this week, we had like 400 people on the team. I didnt really take part in the quizz and sat with ell and co at the back because I was really tired. But to top it off we got 12 out of 12 on the sports round. So we got the minute behind the bar which was great! Though i was on the coke as I was driving, wow. We also broke the record, held by Mario of 21 pints, we hit 30, yerr I admitt there was a small bit of cheating involved, like having several people helping out. But still Issy well done.
For the rest of the week, well theres bin a huge pile of revision with proper wrk thrown in too. Saturday night was… well… errr… fun to say the least lol. I bumped into so many people it was great and it was fun for other reasons lol. I shall say no more :P

ANother great night. Didnt strat off too well as I had been looking forward to going to Rio's for the whole day at work, but when I got there Claire and Co said that they werent going to Rio's.
However I bumped into Julie, her brother and Vanessa so I deicided to go with them. It was Lucinder's B'day so I was planning on getting into Rio's with her as we would skip the queue and get free entry. But the girls wanted to get in before then so we had to pay. We left after I had polished off a bottle of Rose and a very Dry white wine, plus some other bits n bobs. I also bumped into the Pizza Hut crew but I couldnt get them to come with us.
The usual thing happened in Rio's we danced the night away. Barr one thing, when I went to the toilet I got offered sum pills (do I look like I need pills people?) Decided to tell Chris (owner of Rios) and turns out the bloke got done for possession. Chris took me away later on to get all my details as apparently the police might wanna talk to me (how exciting lol). But all-in-all a very good night. As always photos are up, there under Home Sweet Home this time though.

Had been a while since I went to Rios but still, was a great night. Started out with the girls from Harri's house and a bit of a pub crawl around leam. Sophie and Lucy joined us later on. Everyone got well, drunk would be a slight under statement I think.
There were afew intreasting moments there. But still was a great night. Sophie spent most of the night tryin to convience us all that she wasnt drunk, failed big style. Oh and we also popped James' Rios cherry think he had a great night but still not too sure about Rios lol.
Woke up with a slight hangover and went into town for a bit, brought the new Jimmy Carr DVD which is great. Oh also theres been a huge cockup with ITS and everyone now has to change all their uni passwords or end up like me not being able to login to anything. go ITS.

Ok so its been a while so i'll give you a run down of the week:
A per usual we had a trip to Sugar, was a cool night though numbers were low of the round as many had gone back to uni. The dream team (me & Claire) were out having it large. Claire decided to bring her uni mates from Cov to sample the delights of Sugar. Left pretty early for us about 1.30ish, I decided to stay with another group of people but gave my coat away to Fiona. This proved to be a stupid idea when I decided to leave, as it was seriously cold, so I ran home lol.
Most of the day was spent doing our Business Proposal. The deadline got extended though as groupwise decided to throw its dolly out the pram. Spent the afternoon looking around houses with Scott and the girls, found a really nice one with 6 double beds that was only a few pounds more than we pay at the moment. Sadly when we rang up it had gone already.
Went to work as usual and spen most of my time in Smiths talking to Claire. Went out for the night which didnt go to plan but was good anyways. Was meant to meet Charlie at 8. Did the gentlemen thing by sayin I would wait outside for her so I text her on the way but got no reply. Claire met me at 8 instead and said we should go to the lounge for a change, but I said I had to waot for Charlie. Now at this point Claire told me Charlie text her saying she wasnt gonna be out till 9, so if I haddnt met up with Claire I would have been stood outside of spoons in the cold for an hour. Turns out that my phone had a fall out with Charlie's and that she text me in the day saying she was going to be till late, but my phone didnt tell me. Turns out also that the text I sent her was sent 3 times, so she thought I was gettin pissed off with her lol. Yey Vodafone, please remind me why I pay you lots of money every month again? Went to a few pubs, didnt make Rios though but still good night all in all.
Went into town to cheer Charlie up as she wasnt having a good day, then went to work to find that my lab had no supervisor in it so I decided to work. Turns out to be a good thing as I got paid overtime, plus a call out charge and a bottle of bucks fizz, Bargin! Kept running out into Smiths (think their manager is gettin pissed off with me now). Gave Charlie a lift home then met everyone in the Well for our weekly pub quizz, didnt win this week either but theres always next week.
Now I wont be able todo the next 4 Sugars as I have lab work at 9 every Wednesday and getting up at 7 after leavin Sugar at 3 doesnt seem to be too much of a good idea.

So, the 1st Sugar of 2006. Had a really good time, we started off in Spoons and then quickly moved on to Moo where we stayed until Sugar. Didnt buy any drinks in sugar as I think I had enough to drink. I had a really goodtime, though seemed that every girl in Sugar was havin a bit of emotional problems so I spent some time looking after my friends lol. We left pretty early for us, I got back at about 2.30, shickin I know.
Woke up and had a phone call from Woolley who had pulled a girl from Warwick Uni and went back to the Uni and then couldnt find the bus to get back to Leam in the mornin. So I had to collect him, by the time I got to him he was already as the cross roads and must have walked a few miles lol. Then met up with Claire, Becky and Izzy and spent the rest of the day with them. Was a good day, nice to just chill for abit. Back to uni tomorrow yey, not actually looking forward to it must though.
Oh another thing. Would just like to say well done to Charlie for passing her driving test.
January 01, 2006
Well we went out with a bang. We started off in Spoons at 8 with Claire and her sis, shortly followed by Becky and the rest of the gang. We decided that we should get most of our drinking done before Rios as it was cheaper, so 2 bottles of cheap wine, 4 pitchers, 2 double vodkas and coke we were ready for Rios.
Got to Rios by 10.30 and spent the whole night there, Lou was wasted before we got into Rios so I spent 30min looking after her and getting her to drink as much water as she could. Have to say probably the best New Years so far. Everyone started to leave around half two. I walked home on my todd :'( though decided to ring everyone in my phone book and say happy new year, even said happy new year to the Vodafone helpline lol. Got as far as E and then gave up.
Woke up at 8 and didnt have a hangover at alll, loving the drink2 litres of water before you pass out method. Drove into town to see Charlie, and take the mick for working on New Years day. Have to say she didnt look rough or anything, though was yawning every 30 sec.
Again no photos as my camera is still out of action, though Lou was taking photos so I'll try and get a copy at some point. I hope everyone is out on Tuesday, its the last Sugar before me and Claire go back to uni (not that it makes much difference) and hopefully someone will have something to celebrate too ;)

Went off to Sugar again. Met up with Ell in The Well, where I bumped into the rest of the gang. It was nice to see the gang again and catch up. We waited for Ell's friend Charlotte and also Claire who missioned it from Reading bless her. See people now thats dedication. Matt came out with us too.
I decided not to drink too much because I didnt want to get thrown out of Sugar like last time (which Charlotte found really funny). Matt decided after gettin completely plastered to try it on with both Claire and Charlotte. So I spent most of the night keeping Matt away from Charlotte lol. There was also a bloke wearin a hat which she told me to save her from lol (Oh, I have a photo of you wearing his hat lol).
All in all was a really good night, got to see Woolley and Co too. Though didnt make 3, though we cames close. I have been out for 4 days in a row so was pretty knackered. Also bumped into Elaine's favourite bar man from Spoons in Sugar too.
Photos have gone up, remember there now all under Winter 05. Also the whole blogs server has just been updated and maintenance is currently going on so its going to be very slow for a few days, Sorry. Hope your all coming out on Xmas Eve, just for drinks as I have to get back home, give us a cal if you are.
Went into Smiths today to show everyone the photos from last night, Ell seemed perfectly fine. Claire on the otherhand wasnt doing too well and said see woke up pissed, lol. Charlotte though apparently turned up late and also didnt last the day, shocking. Obviously not hardcore enough lol (only joking chuck).

Right lots to talk about this week, Infact thats why I havent had chance to put anything up lately as I have no free time (cos thats never happened before). Right so where do we begin?
Was my works party, and for the 1st one I was actually very sober (compared to last year, hehe). Started off in The Lounge at 6.30, where everyone began to meet. Bumped into Sophie, who I havent seen for ages. Nicky and Lyn decided to gate crash the party which was cool. Jayne (Ass. Manager) turned up hammered. We headed off for our dinner at The Ruby at 9.30 where we did well not to get banned like last year (long story, and wasnt pretty either). I had to leave before the main course so that I could get into Rios I dragged Ben with me. Bumped into Dee, who I havent seen for nearly 3 years now, so was nice to catch up with her. Met Gary, Nicky and Lyn inside and also bumped into Susanna, Keely, Helen, and Charline. Had been ages since I was out with that lot, and Charline, haddent seen her for over 3 years now I guess. So was great to meet up with them. Stayed till 3 then went back to the uni house. Was a great night.
Claire persuaded me to go to The Well for the xmas quizz which was a laugh, again managed to bump into so many people from Leam, was great. I swear Claire had taken way too many E numbers before she came out. Met up with Fiona and Beccy too who I havent seen since goind back to uni. Spent the night in The Well and then drove back home at 1ish ready to get up for work at 7. Yey
Had to lose my car while it went to the bodyshop to get the dents the nice student put into it out. Felt weird not being able to get up and go when I want and relying on my parents again. It was Elaine's 21st yey (you old bugger) Finally got to met Alex (I was begining to think she made him up) seems like a really great bloke too bad hes not around longer think week would be cool to go out with the pair of them one night. We missed the last orders for dinner which wasnt too good as I haddnt eatten and had work in the mornin woo go me. Was great to finally get back and see Elaine in person rather than over the phone or MSN. Will be great to catch up this week, gonna go out Wednesday me thinks for the day yey. Was nice to see evryone else too, haddnt seen most of them since V's 21st. Chernie, lol, now he was funny, was so so drunk he kept falling over and doin very weird mouth movements while sleeping. Elaine too got rather hammered to, which was fun as both me and Alex got to take the piss, and has funny to see her drunk and not me for once. (Ive changed chuck). Sadly no photos as I forogot my camera
Well not over yet, but will be off to Sugar at somepoint, but gonna go to The Well 1st to see everyone else, Yey.
Hopefully get my car back tomorrow too Yey. I have to work from thursday to Saturday though :'( But I do get to go out with Ju, Elaine and everyone else on Xmas Eve and dad's paying the taxi home great. Also out on New years too, should be fun.
Anyways think Ive kinda rounded up the past few days. There are photos from some of the nights but havent had time to put them up, hopefully they'll go up tomorrow night some time.

Like i said its great to be home, dont have to cook and the house is tidy. Also gives me some space to sit down and think on my own, something I havent had time todo for a while.
Spent most of the day working from home, how good is it to work from home? yey. Although there was some bad news, which I talked about yesturday things seem to be on the up. Should be goin to Sugar tomorrow with Claire which is usually a laugh, Im another day closer to Elaine comming back. Though one down point think I might have upset Vanessa, sorry hun was in a bit if a finny mood then. Cant wait to see your new house and u'll have to invite me over sometime and we can catch up.
Best part about being home? I get my bedroom back, my nice tidy bedroom with the best bed in the world. Its so so warm and soft.

Now this wasnt a planned party before I get inundated with loads of complaints because you didnt get invited.
The plan for the night was to meet everyone still left in Leam for a final night out at Spoon for 8. As usual i was late, this was because I had freshers' help todo after uni, anyways. Got back and got sum snap and lots of drink so tht I wouldnt have to spend much money as I have none.
Got to Spoon at 9, and found the group with Claire drunk as usual, stopped off for a quick pint before starting to queue for Sugar. The queue for Sugar was huge and we were in the normal queue not the queue skip, so after like 40 min we decided that we werent going to get in, though Louise was adamant tht the queue had moved till we pointed out tht we had all basically compacted the queue. Anyways, Sugar was off and Rio's was closed and we couldnt find out about Mirage, (sorry Evolve for all u newbies). So me with my bright ideas decided to invite everyone back to mine. So after a quick run to Tescos for mush needed alcohol replenishment we started off for mine. Now in hine sight, yes a Taxi would have been a gd idea as everyone complaint about the walk, though I had, had my bright idea for the weeek lol. I did also offer to swap shoes with Lou again and also carry Jennie back.
When we arrived Scott was there and the fun began, was a really good night though I did have to spend a while clearing up this mornin. Joel and Mackie were out and didnt turn up till later, but was a good night and we got to meet the neighbours, though I had wished it to be under better circumstances. Like they say, the best nights are the ones that you dont lookforward to nor plan. Few points to finish on though.
1st off my apollogies to Jennie, I've had words with James and he WILL behave next time. Also I shall have the photos of my nights our with you guys up on the wall by the end of tomorrow so you can come have a look then Lou, (she wasnt too impressed tht there were none of her) also, I think you might still have my socks, lol.
Was a great night, got to say a fairwell to many of my Leam friends and couldnt think of any better way to finish on. Had Lou and Debbie over today too, and between them have copied half of my music library I think. Anyways cheers guy and gals for a great night and have fun at uni, and we shall have several good nights out when we all get back if im not comin to see you at uni.
As usual comments welcome, I see tobe running a bit low on those at the moment ;)
