Well I have finally ended my employment with Blockbuster, freedom is mine!!! My last shift was the Saturday evening just gone, and I tried to avoid serving the idiotic customers, but failed. 20 months of returns and retarded fuck-wit customers, and I am very happy to be leaving. But I will still miss my colleagues, it was fun working with them. We may be sane when when we first start, but that soon changes. Us Blockbustarians are crazy fuckers, it's the only way we can survive!

However, it aint over yet. I'll still see many of my colleagues on the second Snowdon trip. But this time I won't be a Blockbuster pawn! I'll get to laugh and point!

Well last week was the trip to Snowdon, it was an ... interesting experience. However, we never actually got to climb the damn thing due to the weather, but we didn't waste those couple of days either. Instead of climbing a mountain, we got completely wasted!

We briefly visited the hunk of rock, looked up at it and decided to find a pub. Fifteen minutes later we had found one, and immediately got started on the drinking. We spent several hours there drinking and playing random board games such as Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble (I know, we're fucking wild!). Then it was decided that after we left the pub we would need more booze and some food. So each of us coughed up a tenner and 30 minutes later we had 170 quids worth of food and alcohol. We then headed for the bunkhouse accommodation, which is where things really kicked off!

It looked like we had bought way too much booze and that there would be no way we could get through it all ........ we were wrong. Several hours and multiple drinking games later almost everyone was off their faces and that's when things got kinda outta hand.

Somehow it was suggested that those who went to bed early (a.k.a. the people who didn't drink much, if anything at all) were to be woken up and attacked with toothpaste. I decided not to get involved at that point, and quickly made my way to bed after one of the individuals who had been woken up at 2am made it very clear that they were not amused.

It was 2 hours later before the rest of the drunkards decided to call it a night and headed for bed. However, the room they ALL decided to pile into was the one I was in. Being still very drunk and tired myself, I was not very happy being woken up, so I stormed out and decided to sleep in the kitchen. Safe to say that four chairs lined up together didn't make a very comfortable bed.

When everyone either woke up (the early sleepers, another and me), or were woken up (the drinkers, by the early sleepers) we cleaned up the place and started the journey back, which was a hellava lot more quiet than the trip down there.

When asked for my comment on the trip I responded with "I'm wrecked!".

And we get to do it all over again on the 22nd June. Snowdon Round 2: The Mountain is Conquered, coming soon!

Please note that this blog entry does not depict all the events that occurred during those two days. Those events that were omitted were removed due to either personal reasons, or the fact that they involved individuals in particularly embarrassing/compromising situations. Also all names have been avoided for the same reasons.

Finally the last exam of the year is over, and it went very well thank you very much. That means I won't have to do another exam for a year and a half, fuck yeah!!!

Next up is climbing a mountain, Snowdon to be exact. It's for the Starlight Children's Foundation, the charity that Blockbuster (my current employer) support. Problem is that I have to get up at 3am, talk about your early starts. However the benefits of the trip may very well make up for this minor inconvenience. Not only is there the raising money for charity, there is the challenge and the fact that it should be fun; and other reasons that I won't go into here.

So here's to the end of the bloody exams and to the future!
