just returned from ‘frantic’ boy am i tired :)

Sunday, July 2nd, 2000

Well, funnily enough, not really, you would think so seeing as i haven;t slept for nearly 24 hours now.

So, how did it go, well i left at 11:00 last nite to head up to camden palace to go to ‘frantic’ a seriously hard house night. Got up there by 11:45 and went to Sainsburys to get some Smints, then quick stop at the glowstick bloke before skipping the whole queue and getting in.

So then, how was it. Well, it was a lot different to all the other nites i have been too, extremely hard house, which was ok, but when you get tired it gets annoying, which i did.

So i was sitting there for quite a while wishing i hadn’t come, but when i started to wake up i felt so much better and liked being there :)
Funny thing happened whilst i was almost sleepin’, a girl come up to me and started rubbing me on the back of the head saying ‘are you alrite’ and kept looking at me :D I kept saying, yeah i am just tired, but she kept rubbing my head… everyone thought i had pulled (partly including me actually) but i was way too tired to really think about that.

The evening then, well £12 to get in £4 for glowsticks and £4 travel (oh and £1 for the smints) out of 10, hmmm, 7 (9 when i was awake).

Afterwards (it finished at 6) we all walked down to Euston station to get some coffee, cause the trains don’t start until about 7:20, so we sat on the floor just chatting.

Come home just after that and here i am!! ALthough, i will now leave, cause i wave of tiredness has just hit me :) So long party people! :D :eek:

so, my first correct bet :)

YES! holland beat the czech republic (admittely only just) and this means i win £3.33 :D Yeah, not a lot I know, but now i can put it all on england tomorrow and win back (well hopefully) £10 on top! hurrah!

So, what have I been doing then, seeing as I haven’t posted since friday.

Well, friday night, hmmm, what did happen, ah yes, I went to see Gary (me old mate) and was dead suprised when his family actually remembered me! Which was really good, nice to see him again. I originally went round to fix his computer, but the motherboard was gone, so had to spend 2 hours, yes TWO WHOLE HOURS on the phone to tech support before they would admit this and come replace it :(
Anyway, after this we played a bit of Super Smash Bros, a most excellent game on the n64, using his, what can only be described as MAMOUTH 36″ dolby tv :) he has a nice stereo as well, some souped up kenwood thing with dolby (naturally ;))

Saturday, hmmm, got up late I seem to remember, processed some new accounts (money is rooooolling in :D) and rang up mr james. unfortunately, he wasn’t going out (although i kinda already knew this) so i had to try and persuade cheryl to go to x-static… would she, nope :( He promises he will be out next week end though, hurrah! :)
Went round cheryls and played quite a bit of catch and stuff in the garden with marc, until mrs m got all angry, so we got scared and hid :) (well, just until she’d gone :D) but mainly it was a lazy day. Went home late waving me arms around and stuff to the tunez on me md :lol:

Today was even more relaxed! Woke up at about 10:30, sleep again until 11:00, tv until 11:30, power cut out so shower wouldn’t work so more tv until about 12:50!! FInally got a shower (our shower generator needs electricity you see, and with dad constantly doing electric things, it keeps tripping :D) at about 1:00 :(
Went to Merton Abbey Mills to get some lunch (it is SOOOO worth it) which was really nice, food was absolutely pukka, some chicked stuff with lemon and soy sauce :)
Was really tired though, and we didn’t stay long, so i went over to cheryl’s to watch the football. However it seemed like i wouldn’t be there long as she got in a strop about me eyeing up some women at merton (but they were very nice :D ;)), this things gonna take time :(
Made peace a bit later, but i still think that now we split, i should be able to look, yeah, i still love her and everything (which she doesn’t believe :() but there are pretty women just begging to be looked at ;)
Anywayz, football was good (hurrah!) and went on until about 9:45, which was when i had to leave, get a burger from the petrol station and walk home…..

here now, had shower and ready to go to beddie byez :)
nite nite, lets hope tomorrow i can win even more :D

sorry people, not much time

I can’t write much as Jamie has sent me this excellent cd which i need to put on md for tomorrow via my computer.

Guess what, i finally got my £20 back from Zak today after about 3/4 months of waiting!!! I am now back in the money, woo hoo!

Also, I paid myself via the company :) £35 which i feel is well deserved, and that was from wilbur incase you didn’t know :D
Felt sooooo tired (as i think i said) and was no way i could face cisco, so went to cheryl’s house to rest :P It was really good, very nice nite, there was some program on tv about nudist camps :):) they were all old though :(:( although there was some miss nudist camp award, the winner wasn’t old :D woo hoo!

Played in the garden with marc for a bit, got this new game where we just chuck things from the balcony and one of us is below to catch it :) I know it sounds a bit childish, but very good fun…. hehehe :rolleyes: ’says cheryl!’

Downloaded all the club info for ibiza, it is gonna be COOL! have planned the whole two weeks :) not too sure if it’s all ok with cheryl though, oh well, she’s gonna have to lump it ;) (joking!) :P
Anyway, like i said, must dash, important music to copy!!!

one step beyond………… party ppl!

sunnyside @crash is no more :(

Monday, May 29th, 2000

well, i know i said i wouldn’t be back until 5 this morning, but there was a little change of plan and i didn’t go to frantic, here’s why:

i got to sunny’s at FOUR eventually after waiting around in mcdonalds car park for 40 minutes waiting for jamie to turn up :( anyway, we went straight to vauxhall and into the club….

WOW! like how many people are in here?!? it was totally packed with absolutely no room to move let alone throw your arms around with lightsticks?!?

This was quite a bugger, and i couldn’t really enjoy myself too much, as every time i got into the swing of the music, someone would walk (well squash) past and i would have to stop…

Then, some bloke seemed to get a fascination with me ’sticks and wouldnt’ leave me alone until he could borrow them, i let him and he then went off with them!! It took about 30 mins to get them back :) and that was only cause he had pulled and was getting off with some bird!

Thats not to say everyones a bastard though, one chap who borrowed them was cool and was really practised at them, i was dead impressed.

Anyway, when it ended at 9:30, i was no longer in the mood for more (combined with the fact my legs were almost dead) so i got the bus back to clapham and met cheryl for a kebab. We did have the intention of going to the pub, but unfortunately they were all shut (even though its bank holiday!!) so i just walked her home, picked up my bike, and now i am here :)
All in all, an… ummm, INTERESTING day!! although next week it should be a lot better, somewhere else to go which shouldn’t be so crowded……

nite, nite :P

bank holiday sorted out, woo hoo!

Sunday, May 28th, 2000

You know when you are in a sort of mid sleep, and are on the balance of waking up (although you don’t want to, i mean its soooo early in the morning) and then something happens, like, oh i dunno, a massive record falls of your wall, smashing your glass of ribena and waking you up at 6:47 in the process? Well yes, that happened to me :(
I then fell asleep again (eventually) to be roused at 12 noon :) Oh well, i shouldn’t be tired tonight then… woo hoo! :P
So here everybody is my bank holiday plans (put together after a 30min phone call to jamie)

Leave in about 20 mins to cycle to cheryl’s where i’ll leave my bike so i can walk down to the roundabout where i’ll be picked up by mr james and whisked away to vauxhall (to go the last ever sunny side up there :(). This’ll go on until about 9pm.

Then off to central london to go to, now let me remember, ‘The Future Sound Of Hard House’ from 11pm to 5am, before finally returning home to sleep :) this should be a blast!

Because of this, i won’t be writing again tonite (and by the time i’ve finished clubbing, probably living, i’ll be so tired!) So it’s off now for a right charging bank holiday!! :eek:
