Reading Night

Last night I went down to this. It was a whole lotta fun. I really enjoyed all the readings and all the people there seemed very nice. Well done to Chris and Sally for organising it all. Particularly enjoyed Jenn and her fish assassination (i never know when to stop spelling that word) training and Socrates and his messy encounter with his boss. There was also a top multi-media bit when Shane Jones read to us via a projection from a laptop or something. It was all very exciting. Being a bloody fool, I was all nervy and fidgety at the start when people were on and consequently drank almost constantly to avoid looking odd. So by the end of the evening I was quite pissed, I hope I didnt make an arse of myself. I look forward to the next one of these nights.

I KNEW IT!!! It was when I grabbed the microphone away from the person reading and sang 'Jump Around' by House of Pain in its entirety including the weird horse noises that occur throughout the song. Bloody sensitive writers, there was no need to gather together and throw me through a window. Harumph.

Your rendition of Jump Around was undoubtedly the highlight of the evening...

Next month I will be performing 'Summertime' by Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince and playing the theme from 'Roseanne' on the flute. I am also available for funerals and bank queues.

i'm referring to the 3rd 'no point' here... it was ace! really enjoyed it. favourites were socrates and sally, although really liked thomas fletcher's beckett & self-like piece. loved how he read it in a flat voice.

and from your picture, i'm pretty sure you were sat near us. 'anal sex guy' sat next to my mate, and told her he had bad 'b.o.'... hmmmmm!
