Well, last night was one of the best fucking times of my life. I stayed at Matt's place, at uni. We'd arranged it beforehand, it wasn't like I just turned up. I went 'cos it was karaoke night in the Student Union bar. And we all know how I love karaoke. So, I went through, got there at about 5. We sat in the bar for a bit, then went back to his and watched some of the Office.
We got changed and went down to the SU bar at about 8... Put myself down for Love is all Around, Stop Living The Lie and a Let Me Entertain You duet with Gordon. Been a while since we did a song together, was good.
Anyway, some pissed blokes dressed in school uniforms got up and murdered Love Is All Around before I got a chance to do it. =/ But I did the Robbie number with Gordon, which rocked (I love making a bit of a show with singing, I do all the yeahhhhhhhhhh bits)(8/10 from Helen). And I did Stop Living The Lie afterwards (8/10 from Helen).
Then we went back to Matts, I got changed and we set off into town.
Now then, it was free entry to Ignite in Boro to everyone dressed as a superhero. Admittedly, there were only seven costumed people in the whole place. Spiderman, Batman, Robin, Catwoman, Superman, Supergirl and the Punisher. This was a bit of a disappointing turn up number of costumed people, ignoring the twenty-odd Smurfs running around the place. I have no idea why Smurfs, by the way, but hey.
Supergirl was stunning (with all her chin stubble and leg-hair), her head hair also seemed a bit detached at times, too. Weird.
Bet you never knew Spiderman couldn't dance, did you? Truth be told, he's shit. Especially at Chav music. Rock music, he can pass at (he's amazing on air guitar), but when it comes to all the 'big fish-little-fish-cardboard box' stuff, he'd rather just stand there like his hands are webbed to the floor and bounce around a bit.
...Yes of course I was fucking Spiderman.
Now THAT fucking rocks.
Anyway, on the way to Ignite, we walked past Walkabout, the place was quite busy (Chesney Hawkes had just finished a set). We tried to get in but at the door they asked me to take my mask off to see my face and they decided I didn't look 18, twats. Didn't have ID with me so we just sat outside n waited for a few mates to come out.
For about 20 seconds, then there was a big rush to the windows. "OMGSPIDERMANZ!!"
I looked down at myself, perched on top of a bollard and laughed. That must've actually looked quite cool.
I thought it'd be quite safe to walk around Boro 'cos I assumed there'd be more than seven people walking around in costume, but no.
The doors flew open and the girls poured out. "Can I have my picture taken with you, pleaeease?"
The best one was "Sod Chesney Hawkes, I want my picture taken with Spiderman."
The worst one was "No, it's Spidergirl. There's a ponytail sticking out the back of her mask."
So we stuck around there for a while, while I stood with my arms around half the female population of Middlesbrough. I don't think Matt minded, he got a few phone numbers from some of the girls, lol.
Ignite was great, the music was class until they started playing all the chavvy shit. They actually played Buck Rogers. Fucking Buck Rogers! But yeah, then it got chavvy and I just bounced for a few hours.
On the way home, we were stopped by just about everyone we passed. They either wanted a photo or to just shake my hand. I got called a Legend a few times, which was nice. And without the slightest hint of irony, which was even nicer. We stopped off to get some chips and met Superman and Batman, arguing. Which made me, quite literally, rofl (You'd think Superheros would have a bit more in them when it came to getting drunk on alcopops). I really wanted them to start battering eachother around on that roadside, I had my camera on me and that would've been awesome.
The sheer hilarity of it all was amazing. I mean, I laugh a lot at really obscure things when I'm drunk but I was in piss fits, rolling around the floor outside the pizza shop.
But anyway, they resolved their differences but ended up getting mobbed by a bunch of girls and ended up in their boxers.
It was so funny sat in the pizza shop, two guys in boxers ran one way, then a minute later, Superman and Batman ran the other. Like something off Scooby Do. And all I could think of was that episode of Only Fools and Horses. And roll around on the floor some more.
So, we made it back to Matts in the end, we sat and listened to some t00ns and finally went to bed at about 4:00am. We were going to go into the department to do some work in the morning but as we didn't wake up until 3:40pm, we gave that a miss. I went home from there and got a chinese with me Mother. Now I'm writing this.
In other events, mice have all gone now... Mother, being Mother, caught them in traps and now they're in the big mousehole in the sky-skirting board. =/
Also, after coming to a realisation about my sponge fetish, I went to Boots the other week and spent £7 on 3 different sponges. A nice big, blue one, a super soft one and a half rough, massage sponge. I'm now happy.
I've reorganised me room too, it's great, got loads more apace. Only flaw being that my optical mouse doesn't work on my new glass topped desk. So I'm forced to use a mousemat =/.
Nowwww it's bedtime. So I'll see you all again soon.
