Well, last night was the Fresher's Ball, what can I say? It was like, totally awesome!!!!
I was one of the folks who arrived at the start…so I sat up in Cholo with a friend watching people arriving, including the ones who hadn't read the thing that said 'Formal Dress not required' who looked a wee bit uncomfortable! When Bjorn Again came on, we took up a position on the steps by the dancefloor in the Marketplace to watch…they were brilliant!!! It was a great atmosphere actually, and although the floor was packed it was generally good natured. This all changed later when the fantasatic Electric 6 came on, when the floor began to turn into the smallest but most energetic mosh pit I've ever seen! I lasted till the end of the first song, then after getting an elbow in my eye, and nearly being thrown right off my 3-in heels I made my escape, and stood in front of a convieniently strong looking male friend of mine for protection (thanks Matt!)
The band were great, and as a sidenote I thought the security guys did an excellent job, but why didn't they do an encore????? meanies :(
When at 1.00 I suddenly remembered I had a 10am lecture I decided to call it a night, though not before stopping off at the kebab van for a bit of greasy nutrition (seemed like such a good idea at the time!)
So the night was brilliant, and I can only dream of the kind of acts we'll get at our graduation ball in a few years time….
Next time, will someone please remind me to wear something that doesn't clash with purple, as it really didn't match my outfit last night…
Did anyone else wish someone would try a crowd surf from the first floor….that would have been funny…(joke)
So cheers to all you Freshers for making it such a great night.
