Balloon buffoon!

Jenghenge, complete with druid, wand and sacrificial alter. ( Don't ask! )

Sooo: Happy new year all. Sorry bout the lack of posting of late, it's been a hectic couple of weeks.

New Years eve I actually worked ( and got kinda pissed ) Couple of things happened of note:

A: The promoter decided it would be a really great idea to make a balloon drop thing ( to see in the new year ) and then tie it all up in the lighting truss frame. Trouble is though that when I came to turn on all the lights in the venue, he'd tied the fukin thing around all the moving heads ( you know, the twisty spiny lights you get in venues. ) Which then proceeded to spring into action churning up all the netting holding the balloons, bursting virtually every balloon, burning out several ( very ) expensive moving head motors and resulting in all out venue chaos as I scrambled to trip the light breakers before the whole fukin light frame caught fire?? Talk about a mess, it took us about an hour to untangle the damn thing from the lights. Stupid stupid idiot! I swear, some people have no common sense... wotsoever?

And:

B: My mate A.

I bumped into A a couple of weeks ago and invited him to the venue to see in the New Year. Bad mistake! A proceeded to get sooo fukin drunk that I had to baby sit him all night? He made such an arse of himself that it became embarrassing even by my standards, and all in front of the people I have to work with on a regular basis. It came to the end of the night and A just wouldn't sodding go home, so I dragged him off with me to a party...where he then proceeded to get himself ( and me as I'd brought him with me ) kicked out in spectacular fashion, something about him being naked in the toilet??? I dunno, I didn't see it??

I took A home and realised I'd left my fukin phone at the above said party? But...luckily I managed to track down one of my mates J via Facebook ( thank gawd for mobile phone internet ) who located the phone. I then had to travel back to central London, collect the phone and apologise to the organiser of the party before returning home feeling completely shitty from far too much booze.

I slept all day yesterday.

Sooo: Good start to the New Year then eh?

I'm gonna go meet with B in a while for a wee drink down the local.

And that's about the size of that really. To be honest, I'm just glad to get the silly season out of the way.

A friend of mine brought a buddy to a party. They guy was piss drunk before they arrived and made such an ass of himself that me and the property owner escorted him and his remaining beer off of the premises. (this is out in the country a bit) Later we drove out to collect him before he got himself arrested and I had to chase the guy down across an old corn field and stuff him in the back of a car. They guy was soo wasted by then he though I was the police.

Second post about your mate A getting kicked out of a club. Have you ever stopped to think, maybe he's an absolute prick and the guy had every right to ask him to leave.
