How many have your name?

Vodka Scooters

Stolen from ScottieMac cos its like so awesome!

The Vodka Scooter... How many times have you woken up in the morning after a hard
night drinking and thought, "How on earth did I get home?" As hard as you try, you cannot piece together your return journey from the pub to your house.

The answer to this puzzle is that you used a "Vodka Scooter". The Vodka Scooter is a mythical
form of transport, owned and leased to the drunk by Bacchus, the Roman God of Wine.
The Vodka Scooter works in the following fashion - The passenger reaches a certain level of drunkenness and the "slurring gland" begins to give off a pheromone. Bacchus or one of his many
sub-contractors detects this pheromone and sends down a winged Vodka Scooter. The Scooter
scoops up the passenger and deposits them in their bedroom via a Trans-Dimensional Portal. This is not cheap to run, so a large portion of the passenger's in-pocket cash is taken as

This answers the second question after a night out, "How did I spend so
much money?" Unfortunately, Vodka Scooters have a poor safety record and are thought
to be responsible for over 90% of all UDI (Unidentified Drinking Injuries), such as
bruised legs, stubbed toes, scratched hands and a sore spot on the top of your head.
An undocumented feature of the Vodka Scooter is the destruction of time segments
during the trip. The nature of Trans-dimensional Portals dictates that time will be
lost, seemingly unaccounted for?

This answers a third question after a night out, "What the hell happened?" With good intentions, Bacchus opted for the REMIT (Removal of Embarrassing Moments in Time) add on, that automatically removes, in descending order, those parts in time regretted most. Unfortunately one person's REMIT is not necessarily the REMIT of another's and quite often, lost time is regained in discussions over a period of time. Independent studies have also shown that Beer Goggles often cause the Scooter's navigation system to malfunction thus sending passengers to the wrong bedroom with the wrong person, often with horrific consequences. Vodka Scooters come equipped with Thump-A-Lot boots (Patent Pending).

These boots are designed in such a way that no matter how quietly you tip-toe up the
stairs, you are sure to wake either everyone else in the house or your downstairs
neighbours. Special anti-gravity springs ensure that you bump into every wall in the
house and the CTSGS (Coffee Table Seeking Guidance System) explains the bruised
shins. Don't forget the on-board heater, which allows you to comfortably get home
from the pub in sub-zero temperatures, wearing just a small outfit for the ladies or
for the men no jacket. Vodka scooters.........the wonders of modern technology...have you ever had a ride on one??!!

not much to report really had a rather random/good night on friday out with all the drama possy for Claire B's birthday went ot cardiff got wrecked stayed at Sams mates house cos i'd lost all the people i was supposed to get a cab back with, met a random busker who was surprisingly good and wheelbarrowed Sam along the road outside the Cardiff Union, oh yeah and we sang disney and musicals songs very very loudly in Cathys i'd feel bad for the people that live ther but since theyr mainly students who wud also have been awake n drunk i feel no remorse!

i just bought about 7 books off the waterstones website for 16 quid! Im happy with that i love that u can buy a play ofr 1.50 but i hate that most of them are shakespeare and therefore of no use to me since i already have the complete works! Michael Gay0Macher has left F1 so i'm happy bring on the reign of Kimi!

The 18th

i woke up very early and couldn't get back to sleep, which was annoying. i heard Beky n Pip crashing about in the kitchen (my room is downstairs)before they headed off to their 9 o'clock lecture. i got up and discovered my new printer had been left outside my room so in a state of mild excitement i opened it up and set it up, it just fits in the alcove by my desk which is a good thing. i then shower and prepare myself for my lecture on British Film and TV. as i enter K131 i notice Jo and Jim and remark that i thought they'd bailed this class!? after 5 minutes of conversation i realise the guy standing with them who before now i had dismissed as not knowing was actually my ex andy! i felt bad for about 2 seconds until i remembered how he dumped me! anyway jo realised about the same time i did who was standing there our faces must have been a give away cos he left! the lecture was on Ealing comedy which is an interesting british genere and tends to involve alec guiness i dont know if i've spelt that right but hey. anyway after the lecture i went bck and had some lunch then headed into ponty to buy materials for my design project (have to build a scale model of the theatre) also i went to the art shop and bought some films n photo paper for my photography classes, the guy thought i was a 1st year cos he didnt recognise me, but its ok cos he only started after christmas when id already finished my course :). i bought the required design materials in ponty and a new perfume Insolence mainly cos it has an advert with a Muse song as backing but also because it smells nice. headed over to the design cupboard and commenced building of said scale model with my partner Clare, discovered i'd bought the wrong scale rule which was annoying. spent a happy 2 hours creatively our model is beautiful altho not yet painted. headed back home to give pip the guns i'd bought her for her Cowgirl outfit for that evening. ate dinner watched Americas next top model and got ready to head out about 7 with the guys from next door since the girls i live with had already started merry making in the union with their respective sports teams. had an awesome night down the union, really quite drunk, ignored andy again and complained constantly about my beautiful 4 inch heeled pointy shoes, seriously tho theyr gorgeous even if they did make me 6'3" or somethin stupid like that. laughed at Beky n kells Clown costumes and theRugby initiates in their gimp outfits. left the union about 12 with luke to watch a film having smoked danced and drunk a little too much.

ah student life :)

do ya really like it...?

is it is it wicked! oops sorry my essex emerging there, i meant he new profile picture, iv been spending a lot of time fiddling with photos, i think its only cos i dont have a printer so i obviously develope an urge to do stuff which wud probly need me to print it out afterwards! im jus sitting around waiting fr tescos to deliver me my food cos i is hungry and i is without food. got another directing class this afternoon im not sure i can take the intensity if its anything like the last one! like killer intensity plus i still havnt worked out what id liek to do for my prac, i dunno as ever im tempted to adapt a book, but u dont ge tmarked for the adaptation just whats seen on the stage so it wouldbe a lot of work with only half of it actually gettin recognised.

who knows eh? bekys man is here for a few days and altho i think hes great and yes i also hink that costello (pips guy) is great also it made me all melancholy about andy again, i dunno i feel a touch seperate from the crew recently i know that im not really but i still get the i'm missing ou tvibe from somewhere. i have no reason to feel that way so i'm probly picking it up from a parallel dimension, i reckon the split with andy was obviously an important thing accross all the many versions of me judging by the amount of de ja vu i had surrounding the event.

hey! so padge came over from the lovely essex to come see the Goo Goo Dolls last nite. THEY WERE AWESOME! the venue was pretty small so they were like right ther i even had eye contact with them some of the time! and johnny made the rock on sign at me n padge when we were bouncin about to an older song :)

so yeah padge just left it was awesome having him here, i always forget how well we get on when its just the 2 of us and no one else well no one else we know well! jus stayed up til like 330 talking bollox n makin strange noises heh.

ok so i kinda like this guy Oli, and yes this is one of the Olis from before but not the short one on my course (sorry oli but u r short :)) this is a guy who was mates with pips flatmates last year and hes lovely :) i really like him but i seem to make him nervous and although people keep telling me he really likes me he never seems to want to do anything about it! hes really funny and we can happily abuse eachother into the ground which is something i look for in any of my mates, his film geekyness rivals mine but he wont watch films he doesn't like the sound of whereas i'll watch anything and this u all know if only from the more random selections in my dvd collection (Dinotopia and Jabberwockey) i dunno i just wanna have some fun ideally with a guy but i don't overly mind being without one! i have awesome mates n everything so we'll just have to see what happens

everythings still a bit weird with andy, but hes stopped trying to be overly friendly to me now and is giving me some space, i dont know if thats cos someone had words with him over his "is it too much to ask for a hug" comment or if its cos he saw me gettin on well with luke a couple of weeks ago, i know him so well that he will instantly think if he sees me with any guy he'll think im having a laugh with them to make him jealous, which i'm really not. i'm still angry with him over the way it ended and i do intend to be friends with him eventually he gets one more chance to have me back whenever that may be, but i'm not holding my breath i' pretty much over him now so if that time comes and i'm with someone else i ain't gonna go running back, things in life have to run their course or they'll come back to haunt u as i'm sure he's now finding out!
