Yesterday I was informed by a friend that they had decided I was a volonteer to do the grilling at the pub of computer science. It was a big event, when the pubs of all the different programs at school were open. It is part of the reception activities for the new students.

Our pub draw quite a lot of people, since we sell big sandwiches with salad, onion, tomato, potato salad and steak. They are quite a meal, and very popular.

Business was brisk, but not extremely so (which it has been previous years), so it was quite OK to work and drink free beer.

After a few hours we ran out of bread an closed down the shop. However, a couple of hours later a lot of people came looking for something to eat, so we started selling what was left. They really were desperate, and more and more people arrived. We had as much meat as possible on the grills, but still the queue was getting longer, and all of us were working in a frenzy. It was great fun, actually (might have had something to do with the free beer, too).

I came home about 4 or 5 in the morning, and I had lectures in school today. However, when I woke up this morning I realized that going to school (or anywhere) was NOT a good idea, so I stayed in bed most of the day.

Now I'm finally beginning to feel like a human being again...

Well, it was worth it. :)
