My ears are ringing still...

My god, what a night...

Began the evening with a Toad-in-the-hole (sausages in batter) and beans that I cooked myself; had to cook the sausages in butter because I'd forgotten to buy cooking oil!

Dressed up, long black corsety dress, dots and curls, hair long and flowy...

Got a Taxi to Black Catz at 9:30...had a fantabulous night...lots of dancing!!

(even fell over for the end of the TimeWarp lol!!)

Met up with Nick Brooks and female companion, tylorva, mrmorgoth, Jui-ehh!! and Matt Black, Lah and Emma, Pete, Nik, Lesley, 'random bald guy', Matrix Si and sis...ooh everybody!!

There was a VERY drunk short guy in there...I had to pick up a chair from off him, and lift him off the floor when I saw him fall over at one point...then later on, Rich, who I met up with, had to carry the same guy from the loos and deposit him on a sofa...until he fell off it and I had to support/escort him down the stairs and out of the building!!

I got *slightly* drunk after 4 or 5 bottles of blue vodka 'stuff'...Jui-ehh!! took lots of incriminating evidence-type photos on her phone, which I'm sure she'll show me at work tommorrow... She looked amazing - her and Matt Black had really gone to town on their makeup, with white faces, black lipstick and lots of deep colour around their eyes, Dani Filth-stylee!!

We all got kicked out at around 2am, and I stayed out talking to Rich until about 6am at least lol!!


I just woke up...fuzzy-headed, bleary-eyed, vaguely hungover but very happy... I think I need a cigarette, ibuprofen and a cup of tea now lol!!

Agenda for today: Tidying and recovery;)

Mmmm...prawn mayo french stick is still in the fridge!!

*wanders off hungrily*


The Divine Comedy :
I've Been To A Marvellous Party
(Coward, Hannon, Pet Shop Boys)

You know, quite for no reason
I'm here for the season
And high as a kite
Living in error
With maud at cap ferret
(which couldn't be right)...

Everyone's here, and frightfully gay;
Nobody cares what people say,
Though the riviera
Seems really much queerer
Than rome at its height!
On wednesday night

I went to a marvellous party
With noonoo, and nada, and nell
It was in the fresh air,
And we went as we were,
And we stayed as we were,
(which was hell)

Poor grace started singing at midnight,
And she didn't stop singing 'til four
We knew the excitement was bound to begin
When laura got blind on dubonnet and gin
And scratched her veneer with a cartier pin!
I couldn't have liked it more!

I've been to a marvellous party
We played a wonderful game:
Maureen disappeared
And came back in a beard,
And we all had to guess at her name...
Cecil arrived wearing armour,
Some shells and a black feather boa
Poor millicent wore a surrealist comb
Made of bits of mosaic from st. peter's in rome,
But the weight was so great that she had to go home!
And i couldn't have liked it more!

I've been to a marvellous party
I must say the fun was intense;
We all had to do
What the people we knew
Might be doing a hundred years hence...
We talked about growing old gracefully,
And elsiewho's seventy-four
Said, "a) it's a question of being sincere,
And b) if you're supple you've got nothing to fear"
Then she swung upside-down from a chandelier!
And i couldn't have liked it more!

It was the most fabulous excitement
I've never seen such a carry-on!
Obviously, it couldn't happen
Anywhere else but on the riviera...

It was most peculiar
You know, people's behaviour
Away from belgravia
Would make you aghast!
So much variety,
Watching society
Scampering past...

You know, if you have any mind at all,
Gibbon's divine "decline and fall"
Well, it sounds pretty flimsy
No more than a whimsy...
By way of contrast,
On wednesday last

I went to a marvellous party
We didn't sit down 'til ten
You know, young bobby carr
Did a stunt at the bar
With a lot of extraordinary men!
And then freda arrived with a turtle,
(which shattered us all to the core)
And then the duchess passed out at a quarter to three
And suddenly cyril cried "fiddle-de-dee!",
Then he ripped off his trousers
And jumped in the sea!
And i couldn't have liked it more!

I've been to a marvellous party
Elyse made an entrance with may
You'd never have guessed
From her fisherman's vest
That her bust had been whittled away...
Poor lulu got fried on chianti
And talked about esprit de corps;
Louise made a couple of passes at gus,
And freddiewho hates any kind of a fuss
Did half the big apple and twisted his trussha ha!
I couldn't have liked it more!
