Ah Sundays. Such a great day and yet crappy all at the same time. At least on Saturdays you know you have one more day before work. One more lie-in. No such thing on Sundays. Monday is just there in the background all day, hanging over you, and it just keeps getting closer and closer until you just have to face facts that it’s coming whether you like it or not.
I went out last night with Dave and Rob. I can’t remember the last time I went out for drinks on a Saturday night. This is mostly because, as you may well know by now, I don’t drink, so going out watching other people getting drunk and acting fools is not much fun. However, going out to catch up with friends is something I am more than happy to do. We went to Camden. I don’t go there often, but at least you know you don’t have to dress up. It’s an odd place, I must say. Rob took us into what must be the most studenty bar I’ve ever been in, The Good Mixer. And full of people wearing weird hats, with bad facial hair and sunglasses, the unwashed look. (How old am I?) Also a fair few men just standing by themselves, staring glassy eyed into space. One such man came up to us and just stood, as if he was going to say something, but never did, as if he was one of our group. And then he wandered off.
Dave tried to get me to go outside and stand for two minutes (he was actually going to time me) and see how many people came up to talk to me. I declined.
Then we went in search of a sit down (my old legs, you know), and went into another bar which was basically empty when we got there, so we got a couch and I drank an extortionately priced orange and lemonade with flat lemonade. Not sure what was going on with the music in that place, but either their stereo was broken or someone had a volume control problem. It was music music music MUSIC MUSIC music music…you get the idea here. And then a guy started playing the bongos, but really badly. He had no rhythm whatsoever.
But yeah, good fun was had. And now I’m being lazy and watching old episodes of Felicity (she’s still annoying) and Roswell, and waiting impatiently for someone to put the latest episode of CSI online. Come on internet geeks, don’t let me down!
