Last week the girlfriend was back home for reading week and so although I usually stay at hers I obviously couldn’t do that this time and as I had learned a few days previously sleeping in an open air train station isn’t really a viable option.
So instead it was time to make a phone call to a couple of friends and see who was inclined to be generous and offer me a floor for the night. Ultimately I was offered some chairs in a kitchen to sleep on and knowing how comfy the chairs in Glamorgan Court* are I readily accepted the offer.
I was also invited to come around before the event and drop my stuff off….
Then of course as everyone else was warming up for the night by playing drinking games I didn’t want to be boring and I joined in with the drinking, after all I only volunteer to do photography at Score! and I have always been allowed to have a couple of drinks whilst working in clubs, although most of the time I stay completely sober.
It’s safe to say that I got reasonably drunk (there is video evidence to prove this statement which was thoughtfully sent to my phone) before I went to Score! Luckily, coming close to my 100,000th photo in clubs taking photos is close to instinctive for me as judging by the photos from the night alcohol doesn’t impair my photographic abilities (and it doesn’t impair my driving abilities either, but then again I can’t drive sober.)
The night itself as ever was a bit of a blur as I spent most of it running around, but thanks to the ladies of one of the flats in K block I had great evening and so I thank you for that. Any chance of doing it again sometime? I promise not to fall asleep whilst talking to you in the kitchen afterwards this time.
*But this comes from a someone whos spends two nights a week in his own bed and regularly sleeps on floors, or just skips sleep altogether.
