The Prof has been co hosting a conference over the past few days.
Boffins from all corners of the world gathered in Llandudno to talk research and last night I went over to have a meal with them all . I got to stay at the Empire Hotel in the town, which is thought to be one of the nicest, which was a treat.
Nice sheets , no dog farts and intelligent company.
Made for a nice change.
I used to be slightly overfaced by a room full of Profs and PhDs , but now I can hold my own and am now well able to do the " small talk" that is required at such functions.
Most people are very nice once they have a glass of wine in their hand.
The meal ( at quite a renown local restaurant) was pretty dire it has to be said. Tasty enough but with portions that wouldn't keep Kate Moss alive.
I thought this tiny portion fad was a thing of the past.?
Anyhow I was sat next to an ebullient Academic from Newfoundland who felt so sorry for me and my one centimetre square potato she offered me some of her vegetable pasta dish.
I declined, which showed great etiquette on my part ! I would have woofed it down in two seconds otherwise.
The Prof was up beavering away on his laptop at 5 am this morning, so I showered and sneaked out of the hotel very early like a tart in the night.
The Polish night porter ( who was dressed rather oddly in a tracksuit) gave me a knowing wink and a leer when he let me out at dawn, as if to say " You have plenty good time with the ladies last night"
I tried to look professional !
And so I am home now. Thanks to my sister who walked the dogs last night for me. All I had to do was give them a quick pee and we are all going back to bed for an hour.
Oh I forgot to tell you.....on my way home at 5.30 am, I stopped at the MacDonalds drive through and ordered myself a fuckoff , massive egg Mc- bloody -muffin !
It was bloody lovely
