Ouch my head hurts and I'm never touching another drop of alcohol for as long as I live. Believe me? Nah.
Oh where do I start (BTW I'm still drunk but I can't sleep until I've said my apologies), erm, well, what can I remember....Well when I got there at a fraction before 6, I couldn't see anyone so I got myself a beer and went and sat down. Then thank God Spans seemed to materialise out of nowhere and I was no longer a lemon on my own (or a wooden banana, but more on that later).
So anyway, then the worrying aspect of who's that guy sitting on his own reading a paper that keeps looking at us, ok understandable I know
Anyway Spans was getting a real complex as he was in her line of vision and she could see him looking over. Then..Jon and his wooden banana arrived (more on the banana later, be patient..) and we asked Jon to check out the guy to see if he recognised him, then Spans plucked up the courage to mouth across then room "Are you Ashley?", blank looks from the bloke and a few blushes from Spans later, the man left. So who was he? Then it was a slow trickle of forumites and I was getting worried that I really would be stuck with Jon and his wooden banana. Gareth was the next to arrive, texting me from the bar what did we want to drink, honestly some people are soooo lazy. I was about to text back but then he walked over :)Then who, well I can't remember the order but I think the following were in attendance
Me, Jon, Spans, Gareth, Snoop, Legless, 'Sweeper, BrenG, Gavo, SusieBee, Ashley - apparently on his own at the bar and didn't spot us numb heads in the corner! I'm sure there were more and I can't think, oh sorry if I've left your name out, slap me hard next time (PLEASE!).
There were a few drunken texts flying about not only to and from absent forumites or ones on their way, but also across the table. I think it didn't help that I thought it would be hilarious to stuff my phone down my bra. Nuff said.
But not as drunk as my other half when he arrived, in fact at one point SusieBee said to me, Caz, look after him please. I was not in any fit state to look after him, like the blind leading the blind.
Anyway then there was the incident with the photocards again, I'm sorry Jon I just find your's so hilarious, the photo I mean. And Jon, sorry about your you know what, it was a complete accident! I think that sent me into a fit of hysterics.
Oh the wooden banana, well Jon couldn't help but whip it out and show everyone, he's so proud, apparently it went in everyone's drink and when I couldn't get my photocard back from the lads, I threatened to shove the wooden banana up Jon's backside unless he gave it back. It worked in double quick time.
I don't really know who made a t!t of themselves, but I'm sure I did, I lived up to my drunken, naughty persona, ah well it is Christmas
So who's up for next week? Or are you all too scared now?
Anyway on the subject of hangovers, I'm sure I'll have a 3 star one at least, I think Ant may beat me and have a 4 star, lets wait and see once we sober up.
BTW did anyone else do a Burger King crawl afterwards? We did, we went to the BK on Piccadilly Circus, I had a spicy bean burger and he had a chicken royale. Then as we walked to Leicester Square I decided I needed the loo (again!), so we went in the BK on Leicester Square, I had large onion rings and he had a chicken royale! I reminded him this morning and he said NO! Oh yes baby, you did, OINK! At least it wasn't a keeebab.
We got a cab home as by this time it had gone midnight and we both were staggering around like a pair of drunks (who us?). He doesn't remember any of that, so maybe he's forgotten everthing else too, tee-hee.
Some come on kids, tell me what happened over your side of the table and don't let me be the only drunken idiot last night
