This shall be the last blog I’ll be writing until Monday, so you all get a weekend break from me as this weekend I’ll be finally going to Wales, it’s only for the weekend though which sucks but it’s better than nothing I suppose. Heading down tomorrow straight after work I won’t get there until late but at least everyone will be settled, I’ll throw my sit in a bedroom somewhere and get my alcoholic beverages on!
The place we’re going is called Abersoch which is right on the coast, next to the beach, the place we’re going is a house owned by my mate Gregg’s uncle, he’s from a family that isn’t scraping for money put it that way, the house has probably more than paid for itself by now too! Five or six bedrooms, two bathrooms, stairs down to the beach, a shed containing two canoes, an American football, BBQ, Sky TV, what more could you want?
Well okay there’s quite a few pubs nearby too. I’ve been twice before, in 2008 for the weekend and in 2009 for the week. 2009 was pretty cool because we went to the music festival Wake Stock, my first music festival, the best well known person there was Moby and he was a moaning little bitch, but it was good all the same… Muddy though, not as muddy as this years Leeds Festival I must add!
For some reason as well every time we go we have to dress up for a night out at least once, my friends have an obsession with dressing up! Fucking annoying but I give in anyway, so far I’ve dressed up as an army soldier, an oompa loompa, then one time I forgot to bring something so I just bought a load of random shit from a charity shop and half looked like Sherlock Holmes.
Going out as oompa loompas was actually quite fun, you don’t feel so much of a twat when there’s a great deal of you dressed as the same thing, although when you get seperated during the night, you look like a prick wearing orange face paint and white overalls, that was the most effort I’d ever made on a fancy dress night out, it was totally worth it though, just seeing all of our camel toes at the tight overalls!
Some girl actually said, “What are you supposed to be?” I just told her to hang herself. Stupid bint.
The actual town it self is pretty spectacular as well, nice fishing village that you’d expect to see on the coast of any country, much like Crail the opposite end of Great Britain, in Scotland where the rest of my family lives. Although there’s less old people at Abersoch, pretty much a surfer village too during the summer.
No doubt my friends will be happy that I have to work, Jake and Gregg always like to be somewhere first although when I’m driving I ALWAYS arrive first, whether it’s Abersoch 2008, Leeds 2010, Leeds 2011, Abersoch 2009… Abersoch ’09 was just funny, they tried to trick me by saying they weren’t leaving until the afternoon, but our idiot friend Warren let out what time they were actually going, I left 40 minutes after they did so they had a good chance to beat me!
Two hours into driving, I was 10 miles in front of them, I ended up getting there an hour before they did, an hour and 40 minutes less it took me, what the fuck were they doing? So this year they’re setting off early morning, I won’t be setting off until around half 6ish from Chesterfield after picking up my friend Will, getting some petrol from the station and then hammering it down, my friends joke that I’ll drive so fast I’ll arrive yesterday 😀
I’ll try and take more pictures of the village and stuff this year to give you lot a good idea of what the place looks like, there are quite a few photos of me in Wales but it’s more of us lot hammered passed out in random places, I did find a few decent ones though!
I’ll see if I can convince them for another game of American Football, played it in 09 when it was just the men, lost the game but I demolished half of my friends, making two of them bleed and in the end, isn’t that what it’s all really about?
Can’t wait for all of that and the drinking games! My God the drinking games were brutal, “Stings” in which everyone gets three bottles of Bud each and you can sting any one else at any time during the week and they have the drink the beer within 20 minutes, they can’t be stung again until that 20 minutes is over and you can’t get the same person twice, although you can threaten other people into getting someone otherwise you’ll sting them! It was good, there are some videos which I have posted before but I’ll post the links in a reply to the blog, because we got my man Will so many times at a God awful time in the morning while he was trying to sleep.
Don’t think I escaped unscathed though! I was playing some other drinking games, which I lost badly at, decided that I possibly couldn’t drink anymore and I was handed Budweiser after Budweiser after Budweiser until I was actually sick, it was the first time a lot of my friends had seen me drunk in the 8 years we’d known each other!
They haven’t seen me drunk since though mwaha.
