Finito

It's all over. Woo!

So the last exam went OK I think. My table was too high, so that was kind of lame, but I still managed alright. At first I went through it as fast as I could, skipping whatever looked too hard. I finished that in about two hours, and then went back through, doing the harder stuff. It's a strategy that has served me well so far. All in all I think I did pretty well. After the exam I went to the pub with my elec. eng. droogs, and we ended up at Paddy Maguire's. We sat at the bar having some celebratory drinks (not the first of the night - I was getting kind of not sober at this point). A band started setting up behind us and then they finished setting up and started playing. After I finished my Guinness, the band finished the song they were playing. The singer started talking to me.

Singer "Hey, how about you get another beer? And while you're at it get one for me."
Me "Hehe, yeah right."
The cute American bartender girl comes over.
Bartender girl "You having another beer?"
Me "Nah I'll be right for now."

Later she came over again. It was my round.

Bartender girl "More drinks?"
Me "Yeah two more of the same."
Bartender girl "What are you having?"
Me "A schooner and a Becks."
Bartender girl (looking confused) "What was it?"
Fuck, did I just refer to a Guinness as a schooner? What the hell?
Me "A Guinness, I mean." (I laugh)

A bit later the band finished a song.

Singer "Thanks, we're the Mile High Club."
Me (getting more drunk) "HEY ARE YOU GUYS ACTUALLY IN THE MILE HIGH CLUB."
Singer "Yeah..."
Me "NICE."
Bass player "Hey, where are you guys from?"
Me "I'M FROM THE COUNTRY."
Bass player "The country? It's a big place..."
Me "THE WHOLE THING." (making a wide motion with my hands)

The next song they played had a pretty awesome slide solo.

Bass player "That country enough for you?"
Me "YEAH. ONLY JUST."

Not long after we finished our beers and left. All in all, a good night.

Engineering students not sober? That's appalling.
