Call me Russ L

Windows, limbs and self-esteem

(The above title is an in-joke, thank you for reading).

Dan (A.K.A. Trigger) and Sarah’s wedding drew nearer. One of the final events of Trig’s stag month (this was an earlier one) was a night out clubbing. I’m really not a clubbing person (it’s a sufficiently unusual occurrence to make it into here, whereas – say – an ordinary evening pubbing wouldn’t be. I don’t waffle on about absolutely everything, y’see…), but as a one-off why not eh?

Beers at Trigs, train into town, pint at The Old Joint Stock, and then onto clubbing a-proper. The queue outside Snobs was just silly and one of our number got unfairly ID-d at Walkabout, and so onto Flares it was. That’s no bad thing, ultimately. You’re guaranteed a nice mix of music.

I don’t have a lot to report other than “Hark at Russ L going clubbing, how out of character.” The lager was much cheaper than one might have expected but somehow it wasn’t getting me drunk. As a result, I didn’t dance. Trig lost a ‘How-fast-can-you-drink-a-pint-of-Guinness’ competition with this girl (by 0.01 seconds…) and failed to come up with an hilarious sexist punchline about swallowing (probably a good thing). Glass on the dancefloor and ‘Oops Upside Your Head’ are not a good combination, as one of our number found out to the detriment of his hand and as a result of that another of our number found out to the detriment of his shirt.

Oh yeah – ‘Build Me Up Buttercup’ by The Foundations really is one of the best songs ever.
