With the SNP predicted to win almost all of the Scottish seats in the general election, I headed to Glasgow to chat to people as the results came in.
There was a bit of discussion on Twitter about a possible rally in George Square.
But it seems no one got the memo.
But there was one place where the bass was thumping, the party was jumping, and the opinions were pumping.
This is Yes Bar in Glasgow city centre, not far from George Square. It used to be called Vespbar but was renamed during the referendum. It's now a lively, friendly political talking-shop with slogans like "The Dream Will Never Die" painted on the walls. And – even more importantly – good pizza. It was going to be a long night.
...especially these guys.
Francesca felt the behaviour of the BBC during the referendum also pushed people toward voting SNP.
Francesca: "The BBC were notorious for not reporting anything about the Yes campaign. They were really bad. That's why Scotland are now like, 'Why are we still paying for the BBC, we're getting nothing from it'. They don't support us or see our side."
Stephen: "And they're supposed to be impartial!"
It was clearly time for them to head off, but not until we'd snapped a quick selfie and promised to be BFFs forever.
Back in the bar, the mood had turned a bit glum.
Carolyn took a break from the results and came outside to have a bit of a chat.
"I’m a member of the SNP and I’ve been volunteering today. I joined after the referendum. I think what people don’t necessarily realise is if you’re a member of a party you can hold them to account. It’s not just on polling day, it’s afterwards as well. You can bother them and make a pain of yourself!
"I think the reason people have rallied behind Nicola Sturgeon is that she's so contactable. If you ask her a question on Twitter she replies and that’s what politicians need to do. At the end of the day we are their employers and they need to understand that. Whatever happens tonight I’ll just be happy if there’s quite a few SNP MPs in Westminster because we know they’ll be fighting for Scotland. They’re not a branch office of some other party, they are Scotland. It would be nice if they got 58 or 59 seats, but we’ll see.
"It will send such a clear message to Westminster if they do. Scotland has been spoken about a lot in this election and it’s fantastic, we do matter. You were reminded of that during the referendum and here we are again."
As I was chatting to Carolyn a guy called Lewis asked James (the photographer) if he could talk to me next.
Lewis was 21 and out celebrating his 19-year-old girlfriend's birthday.
"I’m out for my girlfriend’s 19th tonight. I live in Wishaw (North Lanarkshire). We voted and then came straight here on the train. We come to Yes Bar most weekends but we only started to come after they renamed it. It was so buzzing during the referendum - completely packed. The referendum predictions went from being 30-70 against to being 51-49 for and everyone really believed it: We were all like, 'We’re gonna win'. It was such a grassroots movement. It was so encouraging as well; I think that’s what’s kept people coming back and also voting SNP today because we got so close.
"All you really have to say is that exit polls today are predicting that we’re going to get 56 of 59 seats. That’s insane!
"The reason I like Nicola Sturgeon is that she’s straight-talking and she comes from roughly the same area as me. She tells the truth: She’s down to Earth and connects with people. When you see Ed Miliband trying to blend in with the working classes, how awkward does he look? He can't even manage to eat a roll and bacon properly. And Jim Murphy just looks like Voldemort."
After that, we decided to head back to George Square to see if that rumoured rally was starting to form.
So we took the only logical course of action and headed to a Wetherspoons, where I met these guys:
Hannah, Michael, Rachel, Eilish, and Shannon (all 18) were out in force to celebrate the SNP in the most patriotic way they could think of...
...with a Wetherspoons Blue Lagoon cocktail pitcher.
Despite the fact they were several drinks in, they were very articulate and had a lot to say about the election and the SNP.
They then announced they were off to a club. I asked them if they were planning to rally. They said they might.
Michael took my number and said he'd call if he either spotted a rally, or decided to hold one himself.
The call never came: Blue cocktails clearly play havoc with your memory. It was almost 2am so I headed back to Edinburgh.
So what had I learned?
1. To keep an eye out for Groupon wine-tasting deals.
2. SNP voters think Nicola Sturgeon is accessible, honest, contactable, and down-to-earth, whereas Ed Miliband can't eat a bacon roll and looks awkward when talking to "working-class people". Also, that Jim Murphy looks like Voldemort.
3. Despite the fact they've been around since the 1930s, young people perceive the SNP as a youthful, new, and alternative party.
4. I need more than three hours sleep a night.
5. The next few years are going to be very interesting, particularly in Scotland.
