What a weekend!!! On Friday all 15 of us boarded the ferry in Chav town Hull at 5.30pm and promptly began drinking the bar and duty free dry! Had a meal on board, which was shite because there was no vegertarian food except canneloni that had a 15 minute waiting time (a waste of valuable drinking time!) How rude!
By about 10.00 me and BestMate had found a group of vulgar scousers on a stagg do and managed to wangle a few free drinks! One of them was a manic depressive 19 year old who had just split up with his wife! He tried hitting on me but after my final put down: 'Get lost you ugly scouser loser I'm a lesbian' he seemed to go off me. By about 11.00 the bride to be (btb) was absolutley shit-faced on vodka, champagne and beer. Strange mix, I think she just wanted as much alcohol down her neck as quickly as possible, and standing at the bar all night wearing a veil meant that her glass was never empty. However, it upset her fiance's mother and sister who said that the btb was ignoring them. A fight ensued with the btb attacking her future mil and sil in the toilets. What fun! I suspect that there will be ruptions if this marriage actually goes ahead!
Finally went to bed at 3am and was woken up by stupid gong thing and some chick with a posh voice announcing breakfast in 12 different languages at 6am! Quick shower, piled on coach. Could have cut the atmosphere with a knife, the girls on tour were now divided and not many people were speaking. Especially me and BestMate who were doing the HueySpewey all the way to Amsterdam on the coach. Nice. Arrived Amsterdam wearing shades and still pissed at around 10am. (Details still a bit fuzzy!)
Headed straight to Red Light District Bar where they asked for my ID! (I am nearly 23!!!) But managed to convince them I was legal to partake. Got stoned on Californian Orange Bud - very nice. Spent 40 quid on dope, no idea how we went through that much in 1 day! Tell you what though, me and BestMate had 1 breakfast, 3 lunches and 1 tea with many snacks in between! Highlight of our day was going on the massive ferris wheel in the square and feeling so stoned we got paranoid we might fall out. Me, btb, BestMate and friend sat stoned and pissed at the top of the ferris wheel singing (actually more like shouting) 'I think we're alone now...' Surreal.
Saturday night was more low key. Wandered around the ferry stoned with big cheesy grins on our faces. Girls on tour still divided, btb did not kiss and make up with her future mil.
For my psychology module last term we had a European lecturer who's third language is English. She did not understand most of the assignments she marked and decided to hide this fact by marking everyone down. I have been campaigning for my mark to be changed and for this term's work to be marked by someone else. Triumph! Today she told us that she is only allowed to second mark the next batch of essays! The external examiner is still checking my first mark out, but it's looking good. I think she may be racist as she keeps referring to me as the blonde one with blue eyes and can't remember that my name is hp. Not hard is it?!
Where do I start? The guy is a prick. He is 37 years old with no fewer than 6 children to three different women (anonimouse- are you listening?). She is 20 years old with a bright future ahead of her. Aside from the age and kids, he takes every opportunity to put her down. He makes comments about her weight, says she should dye her hair because he likes dark haired women and criticises her for smoking the odd spliff. He told me and my bf that he loves violence, and spent over an hour laughing hysterically at chinese people hurting themselves on 'Takeshi's Castle' - crap programme on Sky at our house. I thought it was rude that he would come round for the first time and take over our T.V. Apparently, he's a bit of a gangster. That sums up the attraction as far as I can see. How can I help her to see that he's nothing more than an inarticulate meat head who doesn't know how to wear a condom much less sustain a meaningful relationship? I know it's her life, but she means alot to me. My opinion was re-inforced when my bf took me to one side after he'd been out for take-away with him and said 'definitely a wanker'. He's normally a fantastic judge of character. I need a nice guy to introduce her to! Any offers?
