Cheap hotels and housesitting

After a pretty non-stop week, I've come to a halt. A lovely, quiet, sleepy, relaxing halt.

I was going to regale you with a drink-by-drink account of how hectic life has been since Friday, but we're all friends here so let's face it - you probably don't really care, and I can't be bothered to tell you. I can, however, recommend an Etap hotel for any group of 6 ex-university housemates looking for cheap, clean, city accommodation to supplement their night out in Leeds. I mean, don't take your girlfriend there or anything, but if your sole reason for going to a city is to meet 5 other girls and boys, dump your stuff, hit the town, eat, drink, be merry, get the £9 entry to a club reduced to £0, party on down, pull a hot 20 year old, leave at 3:30am, stumble back to the hotel, forget your room number, try your card in every door on the floor without any of their occupants shouting the odds at you for disturbing them - mostly because they're not in yet or are too inebriated to care - then jump on your two friends who got in earlier, climb into the bunk above and pass out until the hangover-friendly check out time of 12pm, this is the hotel for you.

I've now skipped east to Hull for a few days, where I'm staying in a family friend's empty house and have time to write, relax and eat the entire stash of Jacob's Club bars I've just found hidden in their kitchen.



Epic.

I love mint Clubs, please tell me you saved me one? ;)

I've had some good nights out in Leeds, it is always so darned cold there. Although that never seems to stop the locals wearing very little.

Perps - Yeah - All the girls we saw out seemed to have come from the Jane Norman school of dressing: ie. skin tight, short and boob-us maximus.

I think I'd prefer a tub full of orange clubs, but mint is amazing too...I'm not going to complain.

Blonde - Oh you know how it goes. It was just me and one of my bloke housemates left out in the end, and this guy comes over and asks if we're together. I'm like nooo way. So he chats to me, it transpires he is four years younger and a student at Leeds. I celebrate this by pulling him and taking his number. Then I leave, promptly forgetting his name, thus hindering any form of future correspondance. He is now in my phone as "Leeds Bloke". Classy.

Is Hull a resort town? I suggest you change all the locks in the house. It'll be SO funny when the owners come back!

That hotel sounds just like a students hotel lol. I wouldn't be caught dead in a place like that, which is what most students are of a morning, nearly dead lol

PJB - They are a marvel among biscuits.

Unbearable - Hmmm, Hull is more of a last resort, rather than a resort town, but I am currently in a nice area of it called Cottingham. Very quaint and village like.

Perp - I amaze myself with my ingenuity sometimes.

Mal - Yeah, it is a student hotel. Would have pissed me right off if I wasn't there for a night out and therefore too drunk to care about the all-night noise (or making it myself)

Lol, brill, thought it was just me with such names in my phone. I still have "Big Bloke", "Van Man", "PC" and "Preston Bloke" in my phone. Must delete their numbers. Soon.
