Weekend.

Started amazingly well.

Ended amazingly badly.


I'd appreciate seeing my friends this week, if anyone has time free in the evenings on Tuesday or Wednesday - I'm feeling pretty bad right now; need people, need hugs.

Right now, I really need sleep.

Hullo PA peoples. I have a guest joining me for PAing this month ([livejournal.com profile] sevenhelz). Is she okay to come along to the after party?

While we're on the subject, is there a pre-party, where, and what time is it starting? (bearing in mind that it's bank holiday, woo! Actually, how about a pre-picnic in the afternoon if it's sunny enough?!)

Oh yes, I still have a PA ticket to sell if anyone needs one - otherwise I'm going to have to pimp myself to the queue when I get there :)

Firstly, I booked two tickets for this month's PA when I only needed one - is there anybody who hasn't booked theirs yet who could buy one of them off of me please?

Secondly, I caved in to peer pressure from all directions and joined Facebook. I think I'm here if you want to do social networking type things with me. Be gentle.

Finally, meme:

TG have moved their dates back at the same time as PA, so they're still both on the same bloody weekend. Having spent days agonising other whether to go to PA or Transmission, and finally picking PA, now I have to decide whether to go to PA or TG. Blarg.
denny: (Juggling)
I can't actually juggle eight. Entertaining pic though.


* the subject of this post is a question I was asked, in all seriousness, by a small girl at Fruitstock 2005, after I'd been showing off with the glowballs for a few minutes. It was asked in such a genuinely interested tone of enquiry that I actually paused to count them before I answered :)

As regular readers may remember, I'm planning to celebrate my 33+1/3 birthday this new year. I was hoping to do so by persuading a lot of my friends to come along to the Planet Angel new year event, which they had hinted at but weren't giving out details for.

The details have now been released [flyer]. To summarise...

Good: it's a party on a boat cruising along the Thames - should be very very nice.
Bad: it's really quite expensive. £55 per ticket, to be exact.

Would anyone want to come if I went ahead with the plan to celebrate the occasion there, or should I look at other options?

From [livejournal.com profile] katyha; apparently when I hug my friends (and even worse, my dad), it's a faux-american nervous tic.

There was plenty of hugging at Planet Angel on Friday*. Much fun was had by all, and the resident hippies are every bit as friendly as I was promised. They even let me do glow-poi on their 'no poi on the dancefloor' dancefloor, because it was "well pretty, man" and I had a crowd watching me at the time. [livejournal.com profile] bluecassandra and her 'little' sister were looking particularly fabulous.

[livejournal.com profile] libellum and myself left a few minutes before the end, had an extremely short drive back to mine (London with no traffic is remarkably pleasant to drive through), and got ourselves eight hours sleep in preparation for...

Torture Garden on Saturday night. Lots more fun than PA, so it must have been pretty damn good. I juggled shiny things a lot, replaced my glow-poi audience of the night before with a 'beating my girlfriend with various implements' crowd, on pretty much exactly the same spot (TG has the dungeon where PA has the main dancefloor), grinned while said girlfriend ran around the club waylaying any girls who made eye contact with her and snogging them (she did such a good job on one little oriental girl that said girl went off and came back with a friend!!), and got told by one very animated guy that we 'defined' TG for him. We may have been doing something rude on the dancefloor a few minutes before that**. :-D

Sunday we drove home, got another eight hours of solid sleep, then reluctantly eased back into consciousness. At this point I had the brilliant idea of going to the flower market around the corner from my place and buying [livejournal.com profile] libellum a few flowers. I bought the place out of roses, then bulked them up a bit with carnations - final count was 160 roses and 80 carnations I believe. It was quite funny watching her try to find enough containers to put them all in when we got back to her place. Especially when one container turned out to have a resident spider of impressive size - I reckon he was good for a handspan when he waved his legs around (which he was doing quite a lot, as [livejournal.com profile] libellum had put water in the pot before spotting him).

In between getting back to mine with the flowers and getting them to their new home, we also had a visit from [livejournal.com profile] romauld and [livejournal.com profile] elise, and the four of us wandered down Brick Lane and I ate some of the most unlikely things. Anyone familiar with my fussiness over food would be either proud of me, or deeply shocked :) I might pop down there again in future... I doubt it was very healthy, but at least it was different.

At [livejournal.com profile] libellum's place there were also residents [livejournal.com profile] strongtrousers and [livejournal.com profile] glamwhorebunni, and we all spent a few hours nattering before eventually I gave [livejournal.com profile] elise a lift to Kings Cross (although possibly the wrong bit, I realised this morning), and then crawled home into bed. And then read until gone midnight, which was foolish. (Getting up this morning)--

Waking up this morning was particularly unpleasant as my habitual check of my mobile for text messages revealed that my kid brother had been bottled at 2am last night and was currently in hospital being treated for serious head wounds. Apparently he's going to be okay - my mum rang me as I was walking to work to give me the details - but still, not the best news to start a Monday with.

So that was the weekend that was. I feel remarkably intact considering I just did two all-night clubs... maybe I'm not quite as old as I've been feeling lately :) Now to try to write some code, ugh.


* also some kissing of men (with facial hair), so I'm just losing manliness and Britishness points all over the place here.
** in related news, [livejournal.com profile] libellum has apparently learnt to breathe through her ears.

Just booked TG tickets for August 12th, having missed the last two despite my best resolutions to not miss any this year. Who else is likely to be there?

Probably doing Planet Angel on the 11th too. May be somewhat broken in the week following.
