B-Movie was fab in it's 80's cheesey special. Glad I made it! :D

It was really good to catch up with a whole host of people - although I did spend most of the night chatting to Dom and Elaine and also Andy R!

Boogied on down to a few tracks but mainly seemed to chat/drink/smoke. Who can resist Alice Cooper's "Poison" though? I certainly never could!

Also F**KING KYLIE! She almost did it to me again tonight!

Last time B-Movie held an 80's night the first notes struck up to what I *thought* was Dead or Alives "You Spin Me Round" which is one of my most favourite 80's tracks. I bounce lots and exclaim to everyone that this is MY FSVOURITE 80's track and dive on to the dance floor only to discover a few seconds later it's Kylie's "Locomotion". Much embarassament (and a speedy retreat from said dancefloor) ensued. It *almost* happened again tonight. The tune started up and I though *Cool!!! :p* but held back any pronouncement or dancefloor invasion until I amde sure. And sure enough it was Locomotion again...grrr.... at least I didn't make a fool of myself this time. Stock, Aiken and Waterman have a lot to answer for.....

Anyway, fabbo night.

Also got home, switched on LJ, and found that a really old friend has friended me and has actually had an LJ for a few years! How on earth did I miss her??? Glad she's here though (Hi Izzy!) as I'd lost contact to her due to various email/phone changes.

The day was good afterall.

Oh yeah - I should add a PS. I saw Sam Mendes "Jarhead" today. It's a film about the Marines in the first Gulf War (ok, the first Gulf War of the 90's....). Apparently it didn't do very well in the States upon release and I can see why. It does not glorify the marines or the war at all and is a very good film - although that should be expected of Mr Mendes and several of the cast. It's a very different type of war film (it's not an "action" flick for starters) and I really enjoyed it and it had a really good soundtrack (School Report: B). May go and see Brokeback Mountain tomorrow but more likely to stay at home and try and get some work done. The last couple of days have not been productive one way or another....

Anyhow, goodnight fine readers. Till tomorrow......

I hate it when that happens, the leaping to the dancefloor, then the attempt that 'oh, actually I was just going to the bar. honest'

I looked up 'Cheesy 80's night' and apparently it means dancing to Kylies Locamotion is manditory and those failing to do so are classed cheeseless by their peers. You lose at cheesy 80's night ;)

great to find you again.
Last time I saw you was on a platform as my train sped past on the way to a very snowy levellers gig at the forum a year or so back! :-)

get going with the locomotion... haha!

.....and if you are missing Pete Burns that much he can be seen nightly on big brother.. he sang you spin me round the other night.
went off him over the gorilla fur business though.

not that I am watching it I hasten to add.. I do still have a particle of a life! :-)

I think I may pass on the Big Brother viewing.....I get enough of that gossip from work collegues and tabloids at the cafe :p

I can't remember when we last caught up! Terrible isn't it :(

Have to remedy that sooner rather than later young lady.

I had an early night and am sorry I couldn't make it. I'm off to see Geisha on Wednesday and will let you know if it's any good. :)
