I am currently at home in Ipswich working my ass off to get some horrific project in for friday. I got so frustrated a few mintes ago i ran outside to the garden in the pitch black and did some spinning...well it's helped and now i'm ready to get going again. I won't be able to make Sunday cause I'm not home (in birmingham) till monday so take care guys and i'l cu soon. juggle

Posted:Well, i think i'm definitely gonna be at underground city cos i need to see what all this 'psy' trance malarkey is about biggrin
Just wondering though...you mentioned them letting you spin inside, but do u take socks? cos i was thinking, if they had loads of UV lights, i might take my tail poi as well cos then it looks more fun! (for me anyway, hehe)

don't worry about the paraffin, Ros, lol u haven't let me down! just think of it as not being delivered yet tongue

for some reason i'm still hyper from last saturday and i actually can't wait for this friday! (god i gotta get out more).

Posted:Sorry Eccles Saturday was consumed by staring at a screen not doing my coursework. Sunday I gave up and went to Birmingham to spin.



It got finished though....10 minutes before the deadline.



I've found a store around the corner from me, of course it was naturally out of parraffin however when it gets some in I can always carry some more bottles if people need.

Posted:SO hungover...i have spent the whole day lounging around on the sofa! got smashed last night to celebrate finishing my project!

I have managed to persuade my dad to let me bring my car back up so I may come back on Sunday now to spin biggrin. Another reason for coming back would be-dun dun dun-the dreaded carnage queue AGAIN! I'm going to start queueing really early this time cause at the summer one I queued from 3/4 and just missed out on the tickets. If anyone else is going to be queueing fancy taking fire along to keep warm/entertain! just an idea.

anyway, i'm going to get my arse out this sofa and start doing something. gotta stop mopping before I become part of the sofa!

Posted:well, thx for introducing me to Underground City!

Ros, you said the psy-trance wasn't good psy-trance so i'll take your word for it.

the only little problem for me is that the buildup takes so long and is just dragged out, meaning i just get bored more often than not. frown



I had a great time and was great watching ppl spin...even on alcohol biggrin

Hope you all got back safely to your beds wink



Hopefully will be recovered a bit and will see you spinners Sunday!



p.s. *Nag* fuel please Ros tongue



hugs to all

The psy was nice snough to dance to but (in my opinion) nothing special. The DnB was bouncy n beatsy all night, and the tech was stompy stompy fun for all the family. Didn't venture upstairs much. Got side-tracked play fighting with my housemate George (?!?) hee hee ubbangel

I WILL bring fuel on Sunday. I will buy it this afternoon like a good fairy. tongue

Posted:Yes...I was enjoying myself...muchly...probably a bit TOO much devil

Ta for the fuel. I've completely lost my voice now so I doubt I'll be speaking much on Sunday (which a lot of you will be glad to hear tongue)

Why is the day after the night before always so bad... we know it's gonna happen, yet we do it anyway! *i've just decided i'm babbling*

See ya guys Sunday biggrin

But this time I shall bring 10 litres of paraffin, only 6.14. Yay for paraffin pumps. Flid may be coming as well.

Ros, hope everything went well.

seraph, no worries. Hope your chest starts working properly soon.

Posted:I was confined to my bed yesterday after I collapsed while on my way to my next lecture...which sucked...I couldn't eat or get out of bed till this morning, so thanks Kieron. Still get this dull chest pain like something is hanging loose inside my chest when I roll over in bed, which is a tad worrying, but I think it'll pass.

Depending on how I recover, I should be there next Sunday and leech off your ample fuel supply Kieron tongue

p.s. I wanted to Circus Soc yesterday, but the inability to get out of bed was a bit of a hindrance.
