October 20, 2004
On Tuesday evening, against my better judgement, I must admit, I went on the Atomic society bowling trip to Leamington Megabowl. We hadn't been told that the Megabowl was – shall we say – a bloody long walk from the bus stop! I had unfortunately decided to wear my snazzy black ankle boots and therefore my feet were killing me after 30 seconds…d'oh!
We had booked two games of bowling, and after the guys on the reception desk had panicked at the sight of such a large group (we had estimated 30 but it was closer to 50) we got started. I should point out that I am utterly crap at bowling, my excuse is that my arm is at the wrong angle, or something…so the first game I finished with the spectacular score of 29!!! I did pick up a bit in the second game, getting two (yes, two) strikes!! OH YEAH!!!
My score was 89…a little bit of an improvement.
Kudos to our teammate Jamie for beating our teammate Matt (enter wicked grin here) and much applause for Suzanne for her unprecented skilfulness! I send my apologies to the Megabowl if the sheer force of Matt's throws have damaged the lane beyond repair….whoops!
So all in all, it was a great night out…however getting up the next morning (10am lecture) was less enjoyable. Especially as it was maths (sorry Stefan, nothing personal!)
We had a maths test at 12pm, which I think I passed…fingers crossed anyway! Finished off the morning with lunch in Cholo (mmmm, carbohydrate!) And then a bit of very naughty spending in the market place – but I maintain that 2 tops and a DVD for 15 quid is pretty darn good!
Signing off for today…
