Druken Janet!!!!

Ok, so I was thinking what I could indulge you all in for my next little story, and the truth is I don’t know where to start. Having a mentally exhausting week of lectures, both because I’ve become accustomed to doing sweet f a and also because of the main burden in my life, FRENCH. Saying that I had an epiphany today, no I didn’t see Jesus or whatever, I just came to understand that I’m here despite everything and yes they might all speak English but it doesn’t mean I have to speak to them in it so FRENCH ME UP. It was a risk coming to Canada, especially when all the other IMML's from Bath had chosen the France option however I know that my time here is going to greatly outweigh anything that Paris could have offered me. I've never been one to do it the easy way ;-)

Ok so serious thoughts out of the way, back to the drunken debauchery!!!!! CAFÉ CAMPUS is the haunt for a Tuesday night, yes people it is POOOOONANA of Montreal although without the legendary DJ and Bliss, Nomes and Ol by my side!! Last week generated some of the most embarrassing photos of my life which Scarl is currently fashioning on her facebook, believe me $7 pitchers were never a good invention!!! Last night it was Jenna claiming the crown as the drunkest person in the room, Lorna might have impersonated a wheelbarrow and fallen in a fountain in her time, but tipping a pint of beer over someone’s head, headbutting someone, sending some bloody funny text messages and having no idea how she got home never mind when, means she just clinches the title away from me. Congratulations. X



So I’m not the only English representative here in Montreal, Scarlett and Jenna are also flying the flag for Bath and doing so in great style might I say so ladies!! Scarlett is probably the funniest person in the world; her purpose in life is no other than to make “Lorna feel normal” and our time here would be boring without her. Those of you who are yet to meet her are missing out, I might have said 'Ontario isn't very well publicised as the capital of Canada' but believe me Scarlett IS THE QUEEN OF THE QUOTE and here I choose to share a few of her funniest with you, love you babes!

Scarlett (to two canadian men on a terrace after half a barcadi breezer) "So do you have television in canada?"

Scarlett "Do you think there will be gorillas at the insecterium?"

Scarlett "Why sit on a chair when you cant sit on a person. Wisdom from a 0.5% alcohol can."

Scarlett "I hope i look like a porn star"

Scarlett "Ive got a friend whos an emu"

Scarlett "A camera is really like an eye isnt it"

Scarlett "What is it with men these days, they all need viagra"

Scarlett "Ice cream is seriously like eating cream that's been iced"

Scarlett "What's Niagara Falls? Is it a fountain thing?"

Scarlett “We are all going to die in 2012, it’s a well known fact.”

Scarlett “Do you recon we are all thin in heaven?”

This video however puts everything into perspective, Scarlett does know how many sides a triangle has :-)


Visual fancies :-)

Lets start at the very beguinning..

So a certain someone recommended I did this so I would remember exactly what the hell I did this year! I understand already why, three weeks have gone by and it seems like 3 months, time fly’s and ill forget all the stupid things before i know it. Even if no one ever reads it I can look back on this blog and cringe at my “attempts” of writing and if they do then it will be a permanent record of Lorna, Jenna and Scarlett’s drunken debauchery!

I've realised I'm launching headfirst into this (like most things in my life), so maybe I should backtrack! For those of you are new acquaintances, just being nosey, or old friends I've lost touch with, I'm here in Montreal, Canada, on placement from the University of Bath for 9 months (August 2007 until May 2008). I'm studying at HEC (a french business school) accompanied by two other bathions Jenna and Scarlett. This is going to by my blog, serious and stupid, a real window into what we're doing; our stupidity, achievements, memories, photos.

Anyway the MOST HORRIFIC THING THAT HAS HAPPENNED SO FAR IS THAT MY GHD'S DONT WORK, yes I know its hard for you to imagine how terrible I currently look, people have cried, children have run away in terror etc etc etc but imagine this, I will soon be able to get a place in the Rocky Horror Show pretty easily because it will be so much cheaper for the costume department! Apart from the hair, and the imminent liver failure from all the booze everything is wicked!

I’ve found a house living with Rhiannon, a young Anglophone Canadian whose parents (quite randomly) come from Sheffield, a French computer science student from Paris called Ben, a half French half Peruvian phiosiotherapist called Alex and a French Canadian technician called Kevin. Almost a real auberge espanol! The place is lovely and I have a mahusive room equipped with enough wardrobe space for the whole of 1 Rivers Street (miss you girlies). I’m directly in the middle, i.e. between uni and the social heart of the city so its pretty handy. Also I'm close to the most amazing market in the world, Jenna and I have become addicted to the fresh corn!! Wow, corn, corn, corn!! So book your places now cos Lorna’s magical mystery tour of Montreal will only be available until May 2008.

Lectures started on Thursday, arggggg, the first was even more boring than 3 hours with Szarka!!! He told me there were 23 countries in the EU and from that moment on I wanted to leave, ha. The second was more successful, International Culture, a really wicked lecturer but he has a really strong Quebecois accent so god knows what he was saying, well I understood the bits I understood. Hummmmm. My other classes are Marketing, Organisational Behaviour and Habiletes de direction (don't really know how to translate it into English) and the wonderous french grammar!

Anyway I think I should stop writing now, before I start thinking that I’m actually any good at this. Lots of love from across the pond! x
