NikNak's fab party

Today is Thankful Friday. But let me get off my chest what I am not thankful for – mainly my red eye...

It seems somewhere between the last time I looked in the mirror and waking up, I burst some blood vessels and now I resemble something out of a horror movie.

OK, OK, I am probably exaggerating but how else do you explain having an empty seat beside me on the bus during rush hour!


And so, moving on – today I am thankful for the utterlly brilliant birthday party that we had for NikNak last night. She’s perpetually 21 you know.
Anyway, we had an entire restaurant to ourselves and it was so quiet and well lit, that Fab Friend and I could follow absolutely everything. The food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable – right down the the free birthday cake they presented to NikNak. And the best bit – at 11pm it turned into our own private club – we had a DJ, a dance floor and not a single annoying lecherous man in sight!

As Hips Don't Lie came on, Shakira-Shakira did her stuff – most fantastically, too! I swear that the restaurant staffs' jaws almost dislocated as she shimmied her way around the room, hips flying this way and that, shoulders a-shaking. It was a formidable sight.

The Writer did a fantastic Britney tribute while I skipped around the room à la Lily Allen. Quite how the evening ended up being some sort of cabaret dance night I am unsure, but I laughed so much that I am wondering if that's how I burst a blood vessel in my eye!

And now I have the next party to look forward to – Friend-Who-Knows-Big-Words' wedding. Did I mention that she was getting married? Or that I am very excited?

And on that note, have a very nice weekend everyone.

Hi there,

I've just discovered your blog and am absolutely loving it. I work for the company who creates the subtitles (and other 'access services') for the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5 and UKTV.

It's great to be able to read about someone for whom we work [the audience is most definitely our boss!] - to be able to know about someone's life as opposed to their statistic on a piece of paper.

I look forward to reading more entries from you :)
