Banana Attends

Power Cut Christmas Victorian stylee...
So last night, somewhere in East London, we had a Power Cut Christmas celebration featuring unlimited amounts of mulled wine, mince pies, Ferrero Rocher, various savory snacks and some chocolate balls a la Nigella Lawson - they tasted pretty darn good considering they were made by a boy and not just an ordinary boy but a boy who last time I saw was wearing a genie outfit with a strategically placed "opening" for his crystal balls -... Since it was meant to be a power cut, there were plenty of candles about the place setting the mood nicely for that all important polite and mature conversation before you know...things got messy as they usually do. Why is it that when it comes to occasions like this one there will always be someone trying to start a random and unprovoked argument - overheard conversation went something like this :" Just because I like salsa it doesn't mean that I'm a pedophile!!! " erm ok then...moving on....oh and the bad, cringe worthy sing a long to Do They Know It's Christmas?, yes at some point in the night that song did come on and a drunken friend of a friend could be heard karaoke-ing to it...of course at this point in the evening I had already found a room to go to sleep in because that's just how I do - to be fair I was the youngest there and young ones always go to bed early right...right?! - ...I don't know what it is about these East London party times, they are a challenge but I think I'm starting to build some sort of reputation "The Girl who Falls Asleep at Parties" not a good look...but I guess it could be worse. Anywho, from what I hear it was a good night and witnessing the obscene amount of empty wine bottles scattered about the place this morning, it was no surprise to hear about some very sore heads too but Church Street provided that all important cure in the form of some pretty amazing Mediterranean style breakfast with fried haloumi, feta pastry, poached eggs, olives amongst other things...some crazy tea and generally all the goodness needed to make you feel human again. And with that stepping out into the bitter London cold didn't seem like such a crazy idea after all. Another weekend gone and Christmas fast approaching....
