Pub quizzers: I shall be at the Auld Hoose early as usual, despite lack of galaxy_girl00, who will be arriving fashionably late. We may have a slightly reduced team this week, so I welcome any randoms who might feel like turning up. Yay randoms!
(Also be prepared to put up with galaxy_girl00 obsessing over Harry Potter...) 8^P
I've been to York. They've got a pretty thing. Yay for pretty things!
But anyway. Opium next Sunday with her, which is good. She has hinted that she may not have time for a guy in her life right now, so... well... we shall see. I shall continue with The Quest in the meantime, but in a more relaxed fashion.
In other news, went to the Student Employment Service today. I want some work! Even voluntary work would do. But there seems to be practically nothing available. Bleagh. 8^P
At least I have onigiri. Yum! *chomp*
However, am feeling a touch fragile at the moment. Can't quite recall how much wine was had last night, but I had a bottle, scattergather had one, gominokouhai and stormsearch had two or three between them... then figg turned up later, and I'm vaguely aware of two more bottles being produced. There was probably some polish being drunk as well... at least, the bottle is now empty, so somebody must have drunk it. Urgh. Head still feels like it's floating slightly, not quite in the right place...
scattergather hasn't emerged from his room yet. I recall the last thing he said^Wmumbled last night was "never let me drink wine again". And gominokouhai has to work today, and was up until morning with figg drunkedly singing Divine Comedy songs. Hmmmm. 8^P
 Well, how do you spell the french for 'yeah'?
Yesterday I went bowling with the anime society, and we paid for two games. I scored pretty crap the first game (88), and then rather better the second game (145). But then the monitor read "player 1 bowl to continue". We asked, and the attendant said that since we were quick, we could keep bowling until our time slot was up. So I bowled the first frame, and got a spare. Good start.
The next frame, I got a strike. Excellent! A little air punch, and continued. The next frame: another strike. Wow! I've done that maybe once in my life before. Third frame: another strike. I walk away in a sort of haze of 'is this me bowling this game?'. The fourth frame, I'm feeling a little pressured, and expect to screw up. I bowl, the ball goes a little too far to the right... and then starts to curl back... 9 clubs down... the last one wobbles... wobbles... and falls over! I can't resist by now... I jump up and down and dance like an epileptic. The other members of the group are speechless by this point. Fifth frame: my hands are trembling, but I calm my nerves, do the run up, and release. Another strike! Oh my fucking god! And I'm dancing again, blathering like an idiot. "Five in a row! Five in a fucking row! Oh my god that's unbelievable!" The expression on everybody's faces was priceless. They're looking at me as if I'm Jesus or something. 8^D
Unfortunately, I messed up the next frame. (Perhaps on account of my hands shaking like I've got the DT's.) Nonetheless, I was anxious to complete the game; see if I could break 200. And then our time slot was up, and we had to hand the lane over to the next people. Aaaagh!
But what the hey. I'm just grateful for that amazing run. I got 165 points in seven frames... that's 16 points higher than my highest game score ever, and I still had three frames to go. 8^D 8^)
