October 07, 2004
this is just to say that tonight is the fresher's ball, and my next entry may not be coherent (apologies for dodgy spelling, if it is dodgy).
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
I was really annoyed.
i had realised that the night of the pub crawl was the same one as the free concert that the wind orchestra (that i had joined the day before) were playing in!
I so wanted to do both, but my sense of duty prevailed, and i went to the concert.
it was only then that i was told we were playing 3 pieces and if i was quick, i could catch the crawl before it had even left campus.
So, after an appaling concert (by me, the wind orchestra as a whole was good), i ran home, and with my tuba because i still cannot get into the music store cupboard! i managed to change in double quick time, and then headed up to cholo just in case the crawl hadn't departed.
I'd missed them there, but there was still hope. i sprinted outside and looked across towards the main bus stop. there were people. lots of people. too many for a normal tuesday night bus queue.
and so i have a minutes wait at the bus stop before boarding a bus to coventry (that decides to wait for 10 mins before leaving the uni) and it begins.
I now realise that i have 7 pubs to go to tonight, and i havn't eaten well, and i'm a lightweight.
:S oops :S
but i am determined to make it a proper night, and manage to get a drink in each of the pubs we went to. but we did skip one pub, due to the large amount of people needing to get the bus to campus, and lack of time.
it was a good thing for me, because i was having trouble doing many things, and another pint may just have sent me over the edge of stability.
All in all, it was a very good night, and i managed to impress some second years with my pint-downing. They strongly disagreed with the fact i had a packet of crisps with one of my pints, so the pint had to go before i could eat more. so, with much (and bloomin' loud) encouragement, i finished my drink and continued.
that was the biggest shame, that there was a time limit, so i never had time to finish a drink in my own time. a lot of "drink up"s were heard, and carried out, which added to my almost unstableness.
So i tell you all, pub crawls are fun, even with the chemistry society, just dont drink excessive amounts. it looked nasty.
