This is a question Where is the strangest place you have slept?

'lardaholics anonymous' was bored and started a new question over in the old question, so the least we can do is make it official. What with New Year's celebrations coming up, asking for the strangest place you have slept is nicely appropriate too.

In case you are wondering, Portsmouth beach in the fog. Very strange waking up to that.

bridal shop
I was on my way from Leeds to Southampton to help my best friend look for a wedding dress. I work till about 7pm and the first appointment was at 10am at the other end of the country, so I got the overnight coach from Leeds to London thinking all would be well and I would get at least 4 hours kip on the way down. Unfortunately:

1) the coach stopped at every tiny little place it could on the way down, including twice at service stations to let other national express drivers get on/off.

2) every time the coach stopped, the crazy spanish driver yelled the name of the town in a weird foreign accent and flashed the hideous fluorescent lights three times... just in case anyone was still asleep

3) at nottingham she proceeded to have an all-out argument with a boy who was putting his girlfriend on the coach. he demanded that she sit next to a girl and i was the only female with a free seat next to them on the whole coach. driver WOKE ME UP to explain why someone had to sit next to me

4) said girl then called her boyfriend every ten minutes for the next half hour of the trip to a) make sure he got home okay b) ask him to eat the sausages she had left in the fridge for him c) remind him to go to bed - at FOUR AM!!

5) When this girl finally fell asleep, she had fitful dreams which involved her elbow poking into my side once every five minutes.

When I finally changed at London, I then managed to sit myself in front of two hideously xenophobic american tourists who uttered such choice phrases as "it's just as well they built that while they still had an empire and lots of money" (while driving past the natural history museum) and "i don't understand why they have to have new underground lines, why don't they just put it up in the sky"

By this time, I was too incensed to get any more sleep before I arrived in Southampton. I managed it through three dress viewings and lunch before the sleeplessness of the previous night took its toll and I passed out cold on a sofa in the middle of the third shop. While my friend, whose chief bridesmaid I am supposed to be, was trying to show me the dress she ended up buying for the wedding. i woke up with three separate bridal parties staring at me asking the bride's mum if i was okay.

I'm the best friend in the world :D
