Hey everyone! Jesus this week has been unbearably hot, I've even managed to reach the ultimate tan level where It's just being presumed that I am mixed race, much to my best friend Melody's distress as she continuously purchases hours of sun-bed minutes to keep up the notion that she is in fact, actually a black person.
Had a busy week working at the vintage shop/cafe, the venue got booked for a private "Caribbean Night" event ; jerked chicken, reggae music, and Rastafarian's showcasing some serious dance moves - sounds great huh? Sorry, I think you're forgetting to take into account one thing : U.F.B.W aka "unfriendly black women".
You laugh, but just wait till your faced with a whole herd of them, screaming at you that their drink doesn't have the right amount of pineapple juice, ice, and things like "Ummm I KNOW you didn't just touch my straw? That is a health an safety violation!". Basically, dealing with that from 6pm till 4:30am...dark times.
All of the work stress aside, had a nice relaxing weekend out and went to see my best friend Miguel's sister's band Gaggle. They're an all girls nu-rave choir complete with neon crazy outfits, strobe lights, and dubstep drumbeats in the background whilst they sing and chant in a choir like formation. Apart from there being a vast amount of hostile lesbians (it was a lesbian charity event night, but hey don't frown at me because I'm wearing cute shoes), it was one of the best gigs I'd been to in a while. They're doing some British festivals like The Big Chill and Bestival, so if per chance you're going, make sure you check them out live!

it's like being on an acid trip inside a church - what more could you want?
