With only 1 week left until we leave for the start of our adventure we decided to get all our friends and family together for a bit of a doo. It was a truly awesome night with over 30 people turning up in fancy dress and 100+ in total!!
I was proper nervous getting ready as I was pretty much just wearing my pants and an altered childs fur body warmer (looks better than it sounds). I was dressed as an authentic polynesian warrior complete with head dress, skull on a stick (who we named Yorick) and tribal tattoo and Jayne was dressed as a tribes woman with a 'fish sash'.
My good friend DJ Progress was on the decks and did a bang tidy job.
Lots of peanut butter and Jelly shots (don't ask) and vodka later the party was in full swing and everyone was getting quite pally!
The carousel of 200 Chupa Chups proved very popular, especially for several of my work colleagues who started a crazy game of what I can only describe as human conkers. This involved hitting each other on the head with them in a 'Jack Ass' style competition to see who could draw first blood!
Needless to say we all got very drunk and ended up leaving at about 2:15am for the customery trip to the curry house (some how forgetting that most of us were in fancy dress). The curry house owner must have thought he was going mad when a tribes woman, a french man with onions round his neck and 2 french burlesque dancers turned up with assorted other people from around the world!
The last thing I remember is sword fighting with my brother on the side of a busy road using Yorick whilst we wait for my mother to pick us up at 3am (sorry mum).
In sumary it was a truly epic night and a brilliant send off from all our friends... Thank you all !!
ps. I can't believe theres only 1 week until we leave!! I'm so excited I could POP!!
