Some teachers succeeded where my peers have failed: getting me to have more than one glass of wine in an evening. In reasonably quick succession (plotted against my normal rate), as well.

Naughty teachers. Naughty teachers.

"Are you sure we can't get you a drink? Just one? You haven't had a single drink this evening! Oh go on, let's have us just one at least..." "Are you sure we can't get you another? You deserve it! Come now, join us, join us..." "Please do let us get you one more. Are you sure? Come now, this is a celebration!"

Silly teachers. Silly teachers.

I did have the privilege (in my eyes) of hearing my Mammalian Reproduction professor say that he had intended to have one drink of wine at four with the graduands and now found himself at the bar too 'tiddly' to work on his paper revision as he had planned. Tiddly. I was tiddly by that point as well; after they left, when I worked on the third glass they had purchased me, I got to tidsly - which is the point at which a person typos the state of her intoxication and is too lazy or uncaring to bond properly with the backspace.

There we go. Out of all the people in university, it was the teachers who got me drunk. Louise was a drunken riot. It was her first real crop of students, at least in her feeling connected enough to come down and celebrate with us. Bless. (:

Lovely teachers. Lovely teachers.

Now it's time for another cup of water and I'm off to bed! Thank you all for the messages - your support has been overwhelming in just the sort of way a person wishes to be overwhelmed! ♥ Thank you thank you for that!


They say goldfish have no memory; I guess their lives are much like mine and the little plastic castle is a surprise every time. And it's hard to say if they're happy but they don't seem much to mind.

All those drunk teachers and you went home by yourself?

Likely the smart thing, good idea on the water too. It sounds like a fun time, I'm glad that you went.

*Grins.* At the student bar it was just me, Louise, Phil (Mammalian Reproduction lecturer) and a man I hadn't previously met. Louise kept lovingly referring to her 'beloved' who was a 6-foot-something, rather intelligent man who sounded quite lovely...so I thought that tree was worth hugging, but not barking up. (;

It was definitely a blast. I had more fun with them than I had been having with many of the students!

No hangover, too, which I consider an all-round win. I've heard wine hangovers are the worst.

(Then, I didn't feel good yesterday morning - before the drinking - so I considered that a Terry Pratchett hangunder, in which the person feels off before drinking and then feels fine for the drinking and after. :Þ)
