you're about to have a night out with the [lads] / [ladies]
What's your pre-night out ritual?
Or watch a good film, drink beer.
Partly to avoid to paying stupid prices at the bars we go to but mostly because I prefer to go out later so I'm often on catch up.
And by pre-loading I mean drinking.
realise I'm late.
run out the door.
Is that cool or not?
(Genuinely friends of mine, not "friends of mine")
It's probably a lot.
Didnt think there was much to it
while getting ready - also have a beer in the shower to put me in an excellent mood.
i just go to the place where it's happening.
might grab a beer for the walk/ube
hold up lots of dresses against my body and then throw each one onto the bed; i never intended to wear any of them
straighten my bangs
followed by a naked wrestle in front of the storage heaters.
Makeup application, fashion show (entitled, i hate my life i have nothing to wear), minor sobbing, reapplication of makeup and then out.
Since moving chez famille, i just wash myself and dress and go out and do my face in the pub if i can be bothered. I look awful just now.
I meant- WHEN I HAD MY OWN FLAT, ID HAVE PEOPLE OVER....
Disappointed, that you're not friends with pele. I can imagine he loves a good feed before a night out on the razz.
and after catching my own eye shoot myself with personally hand-guns. then blow away the smoke.
If I can think of a plausible one - send text. If I cant, trudge to wherever we'd planned to meet and wish I was playing Total war third age
Is this normal?
even more so if I'm bringing someone back.
And annoyingly probably the one time I remember not doing I pulled an amazingly hot girl. Trying to explain to a scenester why theres little plastic men and paints everywhere isnt easy
She barely had time to get her technical jacket off either
I hate the thought of falling over something in my room and clattering myself off the floor/walls so I tidy away everything before I go out.
I don't have time to tidy before I leave so usually I come home to a bed c
and you can't stop me.
I mean, really.
saying the words "pre-drink", not so much
alright then. do you ride that high-horse to town or...?
I take the banter bus into town usually.
and it doesn't have to be some tragic cheap thing either.
mer mer mer
I don't even really mine the price thing, more the attitude. I mean, I fucking love booze. Beer, bourbon, whisky, port, wine - yes please. Love it. I'm not even saying "getting drunk is bad". It can be great fun, obviously.
But the notion of *needing* to get a few drinks in you before heading out to get to a pre-determined level of drunk just smacks of - and I'm aware how twattish this sounds even as I'm typing it - a really immature and unhealthy relationship with/attitude towards booze.
I can happily head out sober, but I can't deny I love having a drink while I'm getting dressed and ready to go out. That and a DISCOFAG out in the garden.
A lot of our gang congregate in our house on the way into town so it's nice to hang out and drink and talk a bit before heading to a mental gig where you'll talk very little to people.
I think the pre-party is often better than the main thing. I am sitting in the house alone with my dogs though, necking back malbec out of a Happy MOthers Day mug. not cool, but I'm rally enjoying it.
as in finished it, not drunk.
It was already opened for a Bolognese I cooked. So yeah, I am basically drinking cooking wine out of my mum's mug. brilliant.
I agree with all of that actually. Nothing worse than seeing people stumble their way into town.
literally can't socialise if i don't dull the edges with four or five drinks first.
five drinks and i'm gesticulating wildly and talking absolute shit
if I have any more I'd be far beyond 'sociable'
just shouting and talking shit
Listen to music.
Rocky Road to Dublin:
curls with each arm to make my biceps look proper pumped before going out.
I wish I was joking.
this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvmeEyVd5w8&feature=youtu.be
then listen to Do You Wanna Funk once
possibly drink one beer
Convince myself I don't look that hideous. Drink. Go out. Convince myself that I do look that hideous. Cry. Go home and wet the bed.
if i'm showering pre-going out (who says you need to shower twice in one day for a grotty dive/da club?), i spend exactly the same amount of time i spend getting ready on a normal day, doing the exact same things, except i decant the contents of my bag into a smaller one.
4 times out of 5 i then spend ages trying to fix said eyeliner before removing it altogether
tan bottle of wine and two beers in the process
shower with ipod speakers on, then get Spotify on, have some drinkz, couple of games o' PS2 PES, maybe some money on the games, general shabs etc.
You folks have a lot to learn.
i find i wake up feeling worse and with that annoying metallicy taste in my mouth. you know the one.
and having a beer before going out.
like they get on an exercise bike and ride it dead fast, sweating and trying to drink whiskey and coke at the same time
