So, how are you?

So, for saying it's Study Leave last night was a funny. I know that's not gramatically correct - but it's me and Bethy's label for anything amusing:

eg. 'We went to the pub last night... ahhh it was a funny'

So yeah, that's what we did last night, went t'pub. Laughed, a lot. Found stupid things funny like:

*Bethy trips up*

'Don't you think it's really funny that we have hands and feet'

'Why Bethy?'

AND

'What was that face for?'

'There's a really fit guy about to walk in'

'Actually though?'

'Yeah'

'What like that time you told me the guy in the red T shirt was hot?'

*Man walks in...*


Okay, so maybe he wasn't as god damn sexy as that guy there but it still amused us. Along with someone from our old school came over, to say hello to another friend who'd joined us by this point. He was clearly pretty drunk and went:

'How are you?'

'I'm fine thanks, you?'

'Yeah good..... How are you?'

We then proceeded to ask each other for the next 10 minutes, how are you? Whilst this guy and our friend continued their conversation. Now that. Is maturity for you. Then to our greater amusement, his repetition continued.

'Did you guys go to that Ecclesbourne reunion thing at Nono 8?'

'Yeah, it was the Leavers after ball'

'Yeah, because I went in and everyone was like sat down'

*pause*

'So did you guys go that the reunion thing for Ecclesbourne'

'Yep'

and on it went haha

Drunk people are funny. It was getting to last orders, and they wouldn't serve him at the bar because he was too drunk. It then amused us to go on to tell him it'd be a good idea to say 'I'm a pirate, so you've got to serve me' jeering him on telling him to 'pull the pirate card' until he did ha. Not quite sure what we were on about, but it was amusing. Pirate's are pretty cool actually and surprisingly democratic. For some reason I was having an msn conversation about them the other day with a friend and learnt from the one and only god like wikipedia that:

'The first record of such a government aboard a pirate sloop dates to the 1600s. Both the captain and the quartermaster were elected by the crew; they, in turn, appointed the other ship's officers. The captain of a pirate ship was often a fierce fighter in whom the men could place their trust, rather than a more traditional authority figure sanctioned by an elite. However, when not in battle, the quartermaster usually had the real authority. Many groups of pirates shared in whatever they seized; pirates injured in battle might be afforded special compensation similar to medical or disability insurance.'

It looks to me like the pirates have it sorted. I know I would not be complaining if the guy pirates looked like Johnny Depp. Furthermore, Facebook have cottoned on too! If you hadn't noticed you can set your language to 'English Pirate'. I'm no longer listed as 'Single' I become 'Sailin' Solo' (Yeah we know where Jason Derulo stole his song idea from now) and you don't 'write on walls' you 'scrawl on planks'. Pretty amusing actually, but then slightly confusing ha, so I changed it back. But if Facebook is up to trying Pirate then why not? Everyone will succumb to Facebook in the end anyway, scary, but true. But seriously, if Pirates understood and used democracy in the 1600's in a peaceful(ish) fashion I think they're pretty good role models - apart from the whole stealing and killing thing. I wouldn't mind being a pirate myself, especially being into politics and democracy and all that. Maybe I'll stop supporting the Liberal Democrat's and start up my own Pirate Party. Not entirely sure how I could make policies relevant on land, but I'm sure I could have a stab at it, I'm already bored of Cleggron and the Condem party.


Vote for us, bringing your Pirate needs to the everyday house hold.
We even figured out a better compensation policy than you in the 1600's.
And, we'll give you a free eye patch.
(the free stuff usually works)

THE PIRATE PARTY

Nothing like a good old bit of alliteration.
I can see it now :')

I've got my second shift at the pub tonight, unfortunately not a pirate yet. Although,  hopefully they'll be some amusing stories to tell, even though they usually sound crap when they're retold. I always envied people who could capture a groups attention with a good story. The pub does make for amusement though and if I fail my A levels, I think I'll become a pirate.


'Life’s pretty good, and why wouldn’t it be? I’m a pirate, after all.' 
- Johnny Depp



Random point. Everyone seems to be up really early today. I've already had some epic messages on facebook, but seen as half of this blog was about drunken ramble I thought this quote was pretty appropritate:

'and you should be proud to know that your drunken talks do good things' - Alis Tougher.

You know what, I am proud ha.
