Been doing pretty much loads of shopping. The paintings and little weird sculptures here are so good and pretty damn cheap so everytime I've gone out I've come home with something else I don't need just because it's cheap. People always tell you the craft is so cheap here... they don't tell you how much it costs to send the bastards home though.
So been out quite a few nights, one of them I had to brave on my own, just with argus (like the designer in the argos ads!) from Espresso bar
Found, to my detriment, the wonder of Arak. Turns out it's pretty dangerous stuff. It's basically a crap liquor they make here which is like rum/whisky, is filthy, and is apparently not distilled so well so has an outside chance of making you blind I guess. Thanks for telling me this AFTER a night on it. Not well the next day. bleurgh!
Gillian's "Eye" came back for those of you who have seen it in the past. It's not pretty. I can say that cos I got it too. I was far less than pretty. The photos came out ok, but you can definitely see "the eye" in me. Gammy as hell.
So that started to clear up and I got ill. brilliant. Couldn't sleep for 3 days and have absolutely no idea why. So I felt pretty crap with a cold/fluey type thing, no sleep for 3 days and a gammy eye, I was a real catch. The ladies were ALL over me you can imagine. Having said that they're not anyway so it didn't make any difference whatsoever.
Gillian and Hannahs last night... Headed out for some tea, few drinks and back to Espresso bar for the band. "Any requests...?" so we put in our token Oasis request with a note begging as its our last night. So they play it, but not to my liking, so Liam Riley here gets up and sings it. I tell you it's the start of my rock n roll career. I think I did ok. When i walked up apparently Gillian says to Hannah "Oh no, Marcs got the mic"..."oh no, he hasn't has he?". Eat your words girlies. I rocked!
Pretty much it.
Gillian and Hannah left 2(?) days ago, I'm waiting for Chris and Caroline(?) to get here. They were meant to get here and stay with me last night but never saw them. I have no idea where they are and ended up getting pretty plastered while waiting. It's not easy waiting in a bar for someone for 2 hours, then going to a club...
Anyway best go look for them now. Peace outtie
