We’re going to do a single blog post purely about last nights antics because we were up all night. Drinking from 8pm until 7am! We haven’t drunk in a while and we went all out and got very very very drunk.
So it started at 8, happy hour. £1 beers! We don’t even like beer but we drank it because it was so cheap, until 9pm. Then for the rest of the night we were drinking cocktails and vodka with orange juice and grapefruit juice and basically everything. Polish vodka is lethal.
So we started quite well, and we were chatting with some French people near us but they went to another party, but we stayed for the music quiz which was starting at 10. By 10, we were merry. And we got a team together for the quiz. There was me, Shannon, an Australian called Jacob, an Brit called Tom, a polish person called Andy and a guy called Tiago (but I called him Diego all night- and kept saying ‘like the tiger from ice age!’)
For the music quiz, they played a song and the first team to clap twice got to say who sings it and what the song is called and you get a point for each. If you get it wrong then the other team can answer. It got VERY competitive! Surprisingly I was quite good at it but only when it was the cheesy songs like Kelly Clarkson and Beyoncé.
Proudest moment of my life so far, I’ll be definitely telling the grandkids about this when I’m old, I went to the loo and when I came out I was walking towards the table, and the start of Katy Perry, I kissed a girl started. I clapped twice, spun around and shouted the answer like my life depended on it. The song was literally on for 2 seconds. Sad or clever? I’m going to go for clever! So we were winning by quite a bit but unfortunately we ended up losing, because shannon said that the bar lady spoke Spanish because she was from Brazil, when she actually spoke Portuguese. She got offended and took 5 points from us! So we ended up losing, but I really don’t think we needed the extra free shots!
We had a dance after this and I rang my mum every time a good song came on that she liked and we got the whole place to sing happy birthday to Lee because it was 1am, so lees birthday! (Happy birthday lee!). So, sorry mum for waking you up a few times! Shannon then told me she fancied the bar man. So been the best and subtle wingman ever, I go over and I say ‘are you single’ and he said ‘yes why’ and I said ‘Shannon fancies you’ – straight to the point – and he looks a bit erm undecided and he says ‘I’m gay’. Ah well, I go and tell shannon thinking she would be gutted…her exact response was ‘ah okay brill, more of a challenge then!’ She followed him around all night like a lost puppy, but to be honest whatever she did kind of worked and he was being a complete flirt back. It was hilarious to watch but nothing came of it in the end. Probably, you know, because of the fact he likes boys!
The bar shut at around 2 but we were all not ready to finish partying. We found some more friends in reception and I was talking to a guy for a good few hours about how he looks like Draco Malloy. He was Polish and he was copying the Hull way of saying Draco. Like draaay-co. It was hilarious.
We then got the staff to put on music and was making people dance to Macarena and other cheesy songs. Until 5am when someone complained about the noise, and then someone else did at 5:30, then someone called 5 times and complained and threatened to ring the police. I think this was our time to stop with the noise. We apologise everyone! I’d just like to clarify though, it was just us, there was around 20-30 people there! We have a hilarious video that Joe (the gay bar man Shannon fancied) took, I’ll try and add it on the end of here.
At around 6am we went out and looked for a kebab shop and we went with Diego. People were actually getting buses to go to work and we were smashed, wolfing down a chicken kebab, smearing it all over our faces. But it was well needed!
We ended up going to bed at 7am.
This morning we looked back on our phones and we realised we had some videos from the night before. A lovely one of shannon laid on the floor and our friend Jacob asking her if she’s okay before trying to do loads of different accents. Then there was another one were Draco was wearing a crown and he was saying he was going to execute me (don’t ask) and he said ‘if you give me a valid reason to not kill you, then I wont’ my response to this was: ‘don’t kill me because ducks have green heads’ DUCKS HAVE GREEN HEADS. You can see the confusion on his face! I’m trying to tell him that ducks from Yorkshire have green heads. WHAT?! At the end of the video he says ‘the only valid reason you have for me to not kill you is because ducks have green heads!’ In which Jacob replies ‘why do they have green heads’ and Draco says ‘because they’re from f***ing Yorkshire!’ Its brilliant honestly, weirdest but best night we have had in a while.
Also, when I woke up I realised I had lost my key. This key opens the corridors, our room and my locker. Damn. So I go to reception and tail between my legs I tell them I’ve misplaced my key. She tells me to wait a sec before going to the common room. She comes back and says ‘there is a guy through there that wants to speak to you. At this point I’m very confused and I go to the common room. It’s only Jacob from the night before with my key! He doesn’t know how he got it but when he tried to check out this morning, they replied with ‘you’re not hayley?’ HOW STRANGE! But luckily I didn’t lose my key so hooray!
So after 3 hours sleep we were ready for the day ahead, check out the next blog for the next chapter of the hayley and shannon tour!
