OMG guys

I am sooooo hungover.

It was a party of such awesomeness that we didn't get home until 3, then crashed out on the sofa before waking up and going to bed at 6. I really am too old for such behaviour.

These photos are from my phone because I completely forgot to take my camera.

The venue was classy

Boats, bridges and buildings seen from the deck

Downstairs: funky DJ, steak, lamb chops, chicken, "fun money" casino
Upstairs: jazz quartet, sushi, crab legs, prawns, freshly seared tuna, gag reel and set photos on a loop

There was THE MOST AWESOME BAR FEATURE EVER

Glasses cooling on a big block of ice

Night at the Museum ice sculpture. Note funnels at top

Mr E Man being shown how to collect his drink by a very nice, very drunk lady whose stiletto heels kept slipping into the gaps between the planks on the deck. Talking to her was very distracting.

My blue drink spiralling through the ice. Mmmmmm, frosty. And, blue.

There was poker

and, as previously mentioned, an open bar

This is what we got as our last order when they called time at the bar. (We gave away the Coronas to someone who'd missed the call). EcoGeoFemme recently queried the existence of a TUD (totally unnecessary drink). The crantini was a TUD.

No movie star sightings, although I did play poker with Ricky Gervais' stand in. And I chatted to the visual effects coordinator, a lovely woman who is only 25. Oh, and I met an awesome female trainee pilot from Mexico City.

When I switched my phone on this morning, there was a very, very dodgy website showing as the last site accessed on the browser. I was most confused, until Mr E Man reminded me what happened at the end of the party. We slotted ourselves into an ongoing conversation, in which someone was deriding his friend for buying a Blackberry and saying that it took way too long to download porn. I pulled out my iPhone, and the Blackberry owner and I had a race to see who could find something that I will just call a very specialised niche in the pornography market the fastest.

I won! Yay, iPhone!

  1. Sounds very fun and this time I'm jealous for real. It was months (at least six!) since I go to bed at six in the morning (or did you mean six the next evening?).

  2. No, 6 in the morning, although we were asleep on the couch at 3. The cats were very confused with our behaviour. We then got up at 9 for some reason and went for brunch, which helped. I am slowly recovering with the help of all the food in the fridge.

  3. I never doubted you could party like no other :) Although it appears you are also recovering rather quickly - what's your soul food for speedy recovery?

  7. Sounds like you all had fun. And I hope that you're feeling better (although, I'm sure by this time you are). The ice thing looked awesome!

  8. SG, I started with scrambled eggs with mushrooms, potatoes and amazing fresh bread, then moved on to cheese, cheese, toast and peanut butter, more cheese, then finally pizza. With lots of tea and water. The one thing I didn't have that I really needed was a nap.

    R, iPhast iPorn?

    Ruchi, it really was!

    UHDD, yeah it wasn't pretty. Luckily days like yesterday are a rare occurrence now. Not like when I was a student in Newcastle and then Glasgow!

    Amanda, I'm feeling much better thank you! I always have the best night's sleep after a hangover.

  9. Wow, lots of fun. Fun like this makes me long for the days when we could stay up until 3 and not have a child poking us in the shoulder at 6!
    But I reconsider when I open one eye and see that little brown eyed cutie looking at me...

  10. Yeah, I've had early-morning pokes from various nephews... like on New Year's Day... not good.

  11. Sounds like a blast! I'll see what I can do this Friday after my defense. Pass or fail, some liver damage will ensue.

  12. Yes, good luck again!

    After mine I was so exhausted I fell asleep in the bar (actually, standing up and leaning against the bar) at about midnight. My room mate had to take me home while the rest of my lab went dancing!
