Been a bit of a whirlwind weekend so far...

After spending all afternoon getting covered in caster sugar, marzipan and food colouring etc, and after losing a lot of silver balls all over the kitchen floor, I finally got the cake done, showered and got ready to go to Andy's 40th birthday party.

Went out in long black skirt, black silk tail shirt and pvc corset as I was off to BlackCatz after. The party was good - lots of friends and family (and food) and almost an entire hour of Andy doing his standup comedy performance poetry and kids singing and whatnot... Left there about 10.30 and went to BlackCatz -

- which was surprisingly enjoyable. Ebm guy wasn't there so it was good classic and new music all the way through till 2am. A lot of people I hadn't seen in a long while were out, including Spikey and Kylie Paul - also saw Stainless and Becky, Jui-ehh!!, Rich, Paul, Tina, Tim, Lah and Ems, Matrix Si, harlotqueen, hawklord2112, Holly, Jez... Countless numbers of the usual suspects...

Had a damned good night, it was great to see Spikey out again - we have a lot to catch up on and he is dead keen on meeting Mike to talk drums/sound and whatnot - and I think we all had fun:)

Come 2am I was somewhat knackered - and invited Jui and Paul up to mine for a cup of tea. harlotqueen trundled off to hawklord2112's for bed and we managed to collect Tim, Tina and Rich along the way...

Didn't get home till 3am, then we all sat about for ages looking at dodgy flash movies and the like:

Salad Fingers Episode 2
We Like Tha Moon
Milkman
Bananas

...and worse. Much worse.

Everybody left finally at about 5:30am so I went to bed. Mike was only just getting to bed in London at the same time...

Consequentially we have both been running a bit late today. I meant to go in town this morning but didn't wake up till 1.15pm and had to rush to work to start at 2pm. Finished work at 6pm and my parents are back - handily bought 'appeasement chocolate' for mother on the way home...

Mike had to get a 5pm train, which is slow and won't get in till 9pm - and there is NOWHERE TO SIT. He's having to stand all the way from London...

... so I'm off to the pub in a minute to meet up with the people I'd asked to be there at 8pm and explain that he's going to be late...

Lah Ti dah!!

it was a good night *nurses sore head and hurty feet*

My train up was rammed as well - they are diverting the trains via Yeovil so there are less trains then usual.

*hugs*

Sound was utterly awful at one point - think they'd turned the bass up too high - way too high!!

Re: Still not convinced...

plus all the speakers are shot. the best sound, unusually, is in the stairwell. even then, that's too loud.

SORTETOUT!

being there and we both (Kyle Paul) enjoyed 100% (Sound quality is

soonish. Yep, 'out-and-about' again. I've been busy in London cloning
myself for the new venture....Quote..
"News of the World - Sergent Bob Dear of London's Campden Police said "We are buying 40,000 SPIKEY's for our borough and will be handing them out to people queueing for clubs and bars. Once we have done our initial push with the clubs and bars we want them to start buying them and giving them out with bottled drinks as a matter of course." I can't wait! {Taken from www.spikey.co.uk}(Shit,I *knew* I should have registered that domain!)In financial shit@the mo (as usual!) so soon-ish yap with ya Mike. Chow.

Re: BlackCatz

Was really really good to see you Spikey. Soon as we have the flat sorted you must come over for a jam or chill or whatever... We might have some guitar/amp type jobs for you too:))
