-Went to church for the Hogmonay Praise Fest and countdown... which was awesome!! no complains there...
1am, 1st Jan 2009 -
-had Nigerian food in Afro Caribbean after countdown.. wasnt awesome, but it was good... still no complains
2am -2.40am, 1st Jan 2009 -
-walked for more than half an hour in a -3 degrees temperature ... complains/no complains?
2.40am -3.40am, 1st Jan 2009 -
-waited at the bus stop for 1 hour, amongst drunk men and women,
-watched a bitch fight ( yea.. like d ones in WWE-World Wrestling Entertainment, the pulling hair, slapping, kicking, trashing each other on the road and falling all over the place.. d one who got trashed actually stopped to smile for a photo and then started crying like 5 minutes later! ),
-crossed paths with ugly-bunny-looking-drunkards,
-terrified to the bits when came face to face with a determined drunk who wished Happy New Year and asked for a smoke,
-tried my very best to not laugh out loud and get a tight slap across my face or get dragged by hair when a hooker in a micromini skirt (come to think of it, i dont think she even wore a skirt.. :S) complained to her guy that she was freezing (she said the other 'f' word actually) cold,
-saw a lady in a bikini underwear and tube top that was obviously 6 sizes smaller than she actually is (and embarrassed myself cos i said out loud that i would have frozen if i were to wear like that, n d guy friend who was next to me bursted out laughing.. he must have imaginatively visualized wat i said.. sigh.. leave it to a guy to visualize and u'd regret it for the rest of ur life!)
-tried to break into a closed McD for ice cream, and then queued up at the drive through section behinds the cars.. (it was till open.. but ... no i still didnt get my ice cream)
-walked in to a 24/7 shop to buy something to eat and walked out with a snicker bar and loads dirty looks from the owner of d shop cos he thought i was drunk as well ( blame it on the pub that was just 2 doors away and the lack of public transport on New Year's morning!),
-almost ran to a cop to ask for a lift and rescue but stopped by my friends who wanted to see more bitch fights,
-saw many other ppl trip and fall out of the blues,
-saw many gays and lesbians,
-saw many straight couples glued to each other on the lips (not that they need to get drunk to lip lock in public anyways)
-finally got a cab that charged almost double and realized that we could have just walked back cos it was near to our halls
Great start to a new year .. wouldnt u say! hahhaha...
