My program put on a Christmas Ceilidh (kay-lee) to celebrate and have some fun. Jeremy and I went with friends from my class. We met up at my friend Helen's first for wine and games. We played the "hat game," which Helen was very excited to play. You pull a name out of a hat (hence, "hat game") and you have to describe the person to get your team to guess who it is. There are three rounds; in the second round you can only use 3 words to get your team to guess, and in the third round, you can only use body language. It was really funny after a few glasses of wine.
We headed to the Ceilidh (it's a dance, by the way. Kind of like country dancing, with a caller and everything) about 9:30. I didn't bring my camera with me, so I've nicked some photos from friends on facebook to post on the blog.
Here's Jeremy and I for our first ever Ceilidh dance! Notice, I haven't taken my cardy off yet, so we haven't quite gotten into the swing of things.
This was Jeremy after the Ceilidh dancing, when the "real" music started. He wasn't quite sure what to do with himself. He just wanted to go home and go to bed. I don't blame him. It was a Tuesday night and he had to be at work at 8 the next morning!
This is Emma and Emma, two good friends from Uni. The first Emma is from England, but moved to Scotland when she was a kid. The second Emma is from Cork, Ireland.
Fran (the one in the grey dress) dragged Jeremy onto the dance floor to learn one of the harder Ceilidh dances. He was hesitant at first, but ended up enjoying himself! Probably because one of the girls in his circle kept winking at him. haha
Note the girl in the red dress. She's the one who kept winking at Jeremy! She even tried to add him as a friend on Facebook! I haven't even really met her at school yet and she's hitting on my husband!
Emma and me.
Jeremy and I totally messing up the dance. The other girl there is Katie. She's also Canadian. So all the Canadians are the ones messing up the Ceilidh!

After the Ceilidh, rocking out to Black Eyed Peas! Mozoltov!
Lastly, this is Bob with Jasmine. Bob is our Science lecturer. Everyone loves him and he teaches us using a puppet. Amazing.
