Still Blasted at Black Catz on a Budget!! [Mar. 28th, 2004|04:31 pm]

The clocks have changed, I've overslept...CONFUSION!!!

Last night was a blast!! Started getting ready at about 8pm...makeup, corsetry, fishnet etc etc... Got a taxi over to the Nowhere Inn at 9pm.

Once in da pub, met up with Lah and Emma, spiralweaver, missbumpkin and strangepixel, who very kindly bought us all a beer. Cheers Matt!!

*raises glass*

"Death to our Enemies!"

Nicky gave me a present from her trip to Prague... Two cast iron black roses...absolutely beautiful!!! WOW!! And she also brought me the photos of what I wore to the last fetish party...not bad lol, but her photos looked better: she looked fantastic in that red and black pvc catsuit!!

We left when the pub was kicking out round 11pm, and wandered on down to Black Catz.
Saw a whole load more people in there...alienfox looking tall and in a silver pvc catsuit thing, with a red band of makeup across his eyes (like how I used to do as american indian warpaint when I was 15 lol) and a matching fan...also matthewnorth and co., Dan, Sarah, Nik, Izzy, Chris, Tiff, Jui-ehh!!!...tons of people (plenty who I say hello to but don't know their names too lol)... My canadian theatre friend Barbara came down to see me, but had to leave by 1am.

In fact, I have never seen the place so packed... It seems we've recruited all the teenagers ('goth' death metallers and schtuf) as the local rock club has closed on a Saturday night...well over a hundred people in there!

'Twas a fab and fun-filled night...Emma and I seemed stuck on the dancefloor for ages...she was suspicious that Lawrence was drinking her beer and playing all the old goff 80s favourites to keep her there... Danced to loads and loads...usual goff staples... Bauhaus, Sisters, Alien Sex Fiend, NIN, The Damned, Numan, Soft Cell, Killing Joke... Simon played the more heavy/industrial stuff: Rammstein, Creaming Jesus etc etc...

At one point Dan commented on the irony of playing Type O Negative's 'Black No.1' (Little Miss Scare-All) and seeing all the little baby-goths (15-18 yr olds) dancing to it hehe... He also apologised profusely for having thrown up last time I was round at his and Deb's house...the vodka trick after too much fancy cheese!!

Got a little squiffy...and at the end of the night, still had 6 quid in my wallet...wheee!!! matthewnorth very kindly gave me a lift home as well, so I didn't have to fork out for a taxi either... This means I can eat at work tommorrow night, rather than starve till Wednesday;) Cheers!!

Went to bed at about 3am, after taking a couple of ibuprofen for a stuffy headache... Took a mug of Horlicks and a book with me... I must be getting old lol!!

Stayed awake reading till 5am and have now finished Joseph Conrad's 'The Secret Agent'...enjoyable enough, but I much preferred 'Heart Of Darkness'...


Ho hum. Awake now, I have to run round the house and change all the clocks:/

After I've watched the Oxford v Cambridge boat race.

I watch it every year...they look to me like giant pond-skaters going down the river...

(I'll be cheering for Cambridge, hope no-one sinks!!)

Bloody wicked night, wasn't it?

heh yeah I noticed a few of the younger people ( i love being able to say that now i'm 20) in there too. They looked like they were having fun although I suspect their knowledge of "goth" stretches as far as the sisters of mercy.

*grin* nice to see you looking lovely as always. xxx

You too my dear!!! Lovely as ever!! (smooch)

You can say that at 20?? LOL! Think how I feel approaching 30...yes, 2 months to go...9th June...we MUST DO LONDON!!

I have the week off, and spiralweaver is up for it...

I had to give 'eyeliner advice' in the loos at one point...such a mess they were making of it.

I suspect that too...did you notice how PACKED the floor was for 'This Corrosion'?? And how EMPTY it was for The Damned, Killing Joke etc?? Poor Emma must have been on her own til I showed up lolol!!

Girls are worse...even at 16 compared to my near-30 some of them a goth-elitist-snobs...

Jesus, they're far far too young for that, but you still get the 'gother-than-thou' looks lol!!

It was odd coming back to Plymouth after 3 years away in Liverpool...I didn't bother going out simply because I couldn't be arsed with the snobbery...

Too many little upstarts, way younger than me going "Who are you, 'new-goth'??" when I'd been going to the clubs waay before they'd left primary school lol!! Arseholes... I didn't want to bother having to justify myself to all of them.

There appears to have been a recent surge of 'goths' in Plymouth, I blame Marilyn Manson...most of the old crew don't bother going out anymore or have moved away to London and elsewhere. Sensible really...the youngsters make me feel damn old!!

Don't forget, the Boat Race is moving to ITV next year. You'll know where to find it, between Carparks From Hell II and Best Of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (Married Couples Edition).

I know...but did you hear the f-word at least twice because they turned the Coxswains mics on??

LOL!! The Beeb wouldn't like that!!

I'm glad Cambridge won...even if there was some controversy about the first clash... As far as I'm concerned, that happens and shouldn't be whinged about. I think more to the point that there was something up with Oxford's new boat...

The new design meant the rowlocks were much further out than the close-to-seat one's that Cambridge have...

Which means that the oar doesn't have as much swing in the water, so you don't get as much distance whilst sculling.

Anyway, ref's decision is final, wheeee!!!

Wish I'd put money on it now, my mother is whinging as usual about money...rent is due and I'll be broke again after paying it...

Good way to diet at least:/

Heh, f-wrods, well they are students after all, the worst sort: sports soc!

Starvation is a great diet, it just makes you feel like cack. All notion of diets will I'm sure fly out of the window when the money comes in - the survival instinct will make sure you eat, and well.

Nope. I've added it up.

A grand in the bank.

400 quid out on bills,
465 to mother in rent,
20 quid for lip piercing, and...
I need to keep 200 for Whitby at the end of April (a week before PayDay)...

Doesn't add up even before I've gone to Sainsburys...

Same night in France. But in the US, they usually do that a little later, like two weeks later, I don't remember.
