I have accidentally not quite turned into a social butterfly. In that I'm going to Hull today! And have spent every night this week out drinking.

Friday night: saw Hellboy. Loved it, apart from the bringing certan characters back from the dead at the end and the FBI agent who just kinda meandered around the others. What was the point of him? Blue, though, was cool.

Then went and drank two double vodkas and lemonades in about five minutes, followed by another shortly after, having not eaten for seven hours. Still assumed I'd be fine the next morning. I woke up at about 5AM with a stomach ache. At 6, I took two paracetamol, on a stomach that had had nothing but alcohol in it for fifteen hours by then. 8AM got up, got dressed, had breakfast, was ill, had an orange, went to work.

Saturday: Far too exciting. Elderly woman collapsed in a diabetic fit. I'm behind the Till, so what I hear is:

"Do you mind if my mother sits down for a bit?"

"No, that's fine. Wouold you like a glass of water?"

"Yes, thank you."

"Call an ambulance!"

When you're behind hte till you can't see most of the shop (brilliant design, I know), so while other people helped her I was trying to help customers and failing to remember how you escaped the supervisor options screen. My mind is goiong "someone's going to die right next to me". I thought it was a heart attack. Paramedic turned up in about five minutes, followed by the ambulance five mintues later. I'm very impressed with York!

Less exciting, but good in a 'didn't need any more drama, thank you very much' way, were the four Japanese men who spent two hours in the shop. Every doll's house they wanted was out of stock, unfortunately. Brilliant guys though, cracking sense of humour, even if only one of them spoke English (and spoke it well enough to understand York colloquialisms). They insisted on taking a photo of us next to hte model of the house they bought, saying "Now she will know exactly what it is meant to look like, with three beautiful English ladies".

We've also had two people quite this week, so there's a fair chance I'll be keeping my job, and an ex-regular-customer committed suicide the day before his court hearing where he was going to be accused of rape. See? Interesting day. Oh, and I may have my housing sorted ouot for next year too ^_^

Then got back, then went out of drinks. Again.

Today, going to Hull! Going to see The Deep Blue Sea. And I have to wrap this up, because it's about time I left!

Yay Hull!

Chris is now toast. Chris is now an as yet undefined sexually explicit act. I drew pictures, with fortunate hat. (have now just noticed double meaning of fortunate...)

Also good about Hull: the complete set of Indiana DVDs for £20, plus Holy Grail for £5 and 28 Days Later for £4. And The Deep, obviously, despite it's lack of Wobbegong. But many large and slow sharks, and urchins with scary eyes, and other such sea-type things. And getting to the station to find we had an hour and forty five minutes before the next train. Ouch.
