alcohol + assembler + set theory = disaster

The morning after the night before

I woke up this morning at 8:30am and I was in Coventry. I had been out clubbing until 3:30am, woke up at 8:30am and had a lab at 10:00am – I actually made it! I think I’m getting good at travelling by train now, I’ve done enough of it, I just sort of think about where I need to go and end up there without realising.

I’d like to say that programming in assembler and trying to do set theory questions is *not* a good combination when you’re still drunk from the night before. My state of mind this morning wasn’t great and the world wasn’t making much sense. It wasn’t helped by Tom trying to convince me that he’d eaten the stuffed toy dog I bought for 99p the day before, I actually started to believe him and was relieved when it turned up unharmed. I was giggly and silly, was severely struggling to concentrate and tried to figure out why there was a very narrow door on the fifth floor that you could only get through if you walked sideways and were reasonably slim. By lunchtime things were getting very surreal as I ran around the Guild of Students trying to find out where the free candyfloss was and I started to worry that I was eventually going to hit the hangover, but instead I just felt very very tired.

I finally got back to my flat at 5:10pm, the second time this week I’ve left my flat in the evening and not returned until the following evening – I am dog tired and really need to touch base, wherever that is. I’m going home this weekend for the first time this term so more train travel tomorrow.

The night before the morning after

Last night I really had an amazingly good time. We started off at a pub called Jumping Jacks where the Guinness was £1.25, two legendary showmen tried to run a Kareoke with 15 people and the barmaids danced on the bar (in a non-saucy way). We were then supposed to go home after last orders but instead we agreed to go on to a club where we consumed copius amounts of liquid (and it wasn’t water). I think there are only two reasons why I think I didn’t have a hangover this morning a) I drank lots of water before I went to bed and b) I was actually still drunk when I woke up.

The stuff I remember about what happened last night was bad enough and I know there’s stuff I don’t remember. I know at one point I was stood in lauperr‘s kitchen with all her flatmates having chips thrown to me, not wearing many clothes and being drawn all over in biro.

The evening after the morning after the night before

When I got back to my flat at 5:30pm I checked my emails and went to bed for a 20 minute nap, I’ve only just woken up at gone 11pm and I’m hungry.

The perpetual webmaster

So much web to weave, so little time. The BurnFM Website went down well yesterday, I have “urgent” changes to make for a choir’s website I look after, it’s about time the Twisted Lemon splash page turned into a Twisted Lemon Website and I have a nice queue of web sites to do for work.
