So I've got just got from after skool - IT pwned
really go to After Skool?
and we danced to the Postal Service and Peter John and Bjorn - yeah THAT cool - and now we're listening to orchestral jazz, the only option open when one has a higher quality bed than my previous one to put together.
Are you jealous?
I know what YOU mean to ME
Sorry if I was stand-offish and/or had the shakes.
you were the perfect gentleman.
thanks for everyone coming last night!
yes it was. i had so much fun!
and to think, i was only going to stay out till about 10 originally...
that was one of my favourite DiS meets actually to be honest.
rachel's face as she got out of bed for work this morning basically said:
"going to work? that's the worst idea anyone's EVER HAD."
it was a great night, until i did my trademark "losing everyone, getting really depressed and getting unreasonably angry on public transport".
it was nice to see so many people.
it was great to see everyone out, especially Mr Grindrod showing his face in London Town again. I hope Rrrrrachel feels officially welcomed now through the media of cider and silly dancing.
where the hell were you all????!!
though you probably could have smacked me in the face and i wouldn't have noticed... i was quite drunk.
random and grindrod for AGES and then found them again at the end.
I found them!
bar about eight times (judging from how much cash vanished from my wallet) and i never saw them. whoops!
the OTHER bar. Outside the room of dancing.
the upstairs room that i never ever think is open but always is.
i like it up there. i saw jamie t play in there last summer.
At one point. I have no idea where this was, and tried to find it again and couldn't. Was I hallucinating?
Well, not quite. There was a drunk man lying on the floor though. Does that count?
did you have any out-of-body experience?
Quite possibly. Wow. Now I know how much of a cunt I actually am...
near the womens toilets? HMM?
been up there..
that's about it really. i'm always too drunk to notice anything else...
either pumping iron or trying to see women wee?
music in an intellectual fashion. I also bumped into my pals from "look! look! Dancing Boys" which was cool!
I did manage to coax Prole onto the dancefloor towards the end, though. I think we were 'wigging out' some!
although i think his talking about dancing to indie up there may be ace-r purely because he used the phrase 'wigging out'.
dancing to indie.
Was that indie anyway? Sounded like handbag house to me!
HE just sat around looking laconic smoking endless cigarettes in a lordly manner as I humped broken bits of IKEA bed outside to hide in other people's dustbins
Scott Walker images. I did help anyway - I pointed out that empty bottle of 'Reef' that was lodged under the old bed...
what a mad life we live in 'Stokey'
After Skool was quite interesting in a way but I was at least 6 years too old to be there - technically anyway, and doing the 'mash potato' to 'electroclash' is always worth the entrace fee alone - and also shoulting after colin to "wait for us so I can get some rizlas" and only slightly annoying him!
It was fun! I'll bet Colin MacInnes didn't moan like you when he was researching 'Absolute Beginners'!
anyway he was 47ish when he was hanging out with the cats in Soho and Crepe Suzette!
Are you suggesting I write a 'Beat' novel about people in black jeans showing off the arse of their boxer shorts?
discussing the issues involved in determiniing the post Modernist identity of the suedehead and how it used a more utilitarian unformity to display its 'roots' and its mobility as the 'Teds' did - yeah we were out of our faces.
most likely get me bolloxed.
