On the lighter side......

This weekend hasn't been all bad because (apart from previously mentioned gigging).....

I discovered a new drink this weekend courtesy of the madness which is mooncadet. We'd grown a bit tired of drinking red wine and southern comfort and coke and fancied something to warm us up a bit. We did, however, want to continue the 'alocohol' theme of our evening. Thus an experiment was born...... Hot Chocolate and Southern Comfort!!!! Despite initial reservations it actually tasted very nice :D

I was also flirted with at Slimelight last night which was quite nice, even if I wasn't in any mood or frame of mind to do any flirting back. In anycase, there is actually someone I quite like at present and I want to see how we get on. I also made a resolution after Sarah that I want to get to know people before I end up in bed/go out with them and I've never been a fan of one-night stands with strangers (nor have I ever had a one night stand with a stranger). Still, it was nice to be flirted with. Also saw bluehelen, gypseymission, stitchface and gothguyx at Slimes which was really nice (albeit incredibly brief - sorry folks had other things on my mind at the time) as well as catching up with someone I used to work with who now works there (Simon). See it wasn't *all* bad.

I've only ever been to slimes a few times...
but I thought it had a solid reputation for always being a meat market?

Re: I've only ever been to slimes a few times...
Yeah, but I generally am oblivious to meat markets. I don't go looking and I don't generally notice when people look for me. So it was a bit of a surprise.

Just f**ked off. A couple of people have rang today and it's been good to chat (thanks to Sasha and Melissa if you read this!) but I'm annoyed with myself as much as anyone else for getting into the position in the first place and also just not seeming to get angry.

Slimes was a bad idea. One day I will learn, or atleast will go down there with mates and no trouble :-p

I'd love a chat at somepoint, I vould do with some cheering up and boring you solid with my woes :p

Hope Manchester has gone well and :::hugs::: to you too!

Make sure you see Apocalyptica (the support band) as they were absolutely stunning last night. You'll even recognise some of the songs (their first CD was a tribute album to Metallica just using cellos :D). I have a couple of their CDs at home but after seeing them live I think I'll be tracking down the rest. They are one of the best bands I've seen!

Rammstein are also bloody excellent. You'll love the stage show I'm sure and I look forward to exchaning notes about the gigs. You're so lucky to be seeing them. I have to wait until they tour again but last night was a good fix for now :p

Tomorrow night would good to catch up. Do you want to call me tomorrow when you hit town? Failing that I'll try and chase you up later in the afternoon.

Have a great evening and enjoy the gig!!!!!

:D

I preferred Apocalyptica. Rammstein put on a great show but sometimes they aren't all that musically interesting.

Camden drinks sounds good. I should be knocking out of here about 5ish tonight so I can pop home quickly before meeting up.

Hope the journey home is stress free and see you this evening.

Apocalyptica were fantastic, I was hugely impressed :D

Making new and interesting alchol based beverages is always fun. I suggest Irish cream hot chocolate with a huge measure of Balieys. Also chocolate milkshake with coffee liquire and Balieys (someone brought it home for me from Spain, and I wasnt going to drink the stuff straight) My other half twisted_times loves to play with bottles of booze and make new cocktails. Just a warning for the housewarming party when we have one :D

We ended up having Hot Chocolate and Southern Comfort by default of the old Comfort being the only thing at hand that we thought would mix well (the rest being either red wine, champagne or vodka). Although the vodka may have been alright but that would have involved going upstairs and retrieving it from the bedroom. If I'd remembered I actually had some vodka before writing this reply in anycase ;p
