Top 10 Bits of A4U Expo Europe 2009

Once again a random work related post, but I thought I would share my top 10 moments with you anyway. So here are my top 10 moments from Expo!

1) Whoah! – To explain, when venturing out into the inner depths of Amsterdam, some friends and I were admiring the many lovely looking ladies in windows ‘working’ only to hear a sudden ‘whoah’ in response to a most industrial looking lady, she was such a site we went up the street twice just to check it was real!

2) The Mixed Grill – My boss Mark ordered a mixed grill on the first night, and after a long day driving and almost no food, he was quite hungry. This is what arrived, you can imagine his face. I was crying with laughter, seriously can you imagine his face when that arrived? We even questioned it with the waiter and then went on to explain a British mixed grill… Comedy genius!

3) J Lil fell asleep – J, you know you did! After a heavy night on the beer, during his panel presentation, J slipped in and out of sleep. Me being me, made everyone aware of the fact and so it was twittered, and re twittered accordingly! It also amused me that you were introduced as a member of a rival workplace! LOL

4) Okay Tug – Best Name ever! Apologies to the real person, but seeing that business card created many many laughs!

5) The face pulling – after being groped in a random bar in Amsterdam on Queens night a few of us headed outside to hail a cab, I decided i had not taken enough dodgy pictures and so some face pulling ensued. See below;

6) If Carlsberg make taxi’s, they’d make this one bigger – imagine 3 ‘larger’ blokes and a skinny guy, guess who gets in the front!?! My lord we laughed so much it hurt, our taxi driver was in hysterics too (dangerous) soo sooo soooooo funny!
taxi!

7) Being SMUG – I decided not to drink at expo, yes yes i know, me, not drink! I said not until the last night and thats what happened. The sheer feeling of smugness is great, when you see many many broken faces who partied a little too hard, and you feel fresh as a daisy it’s great. I may continue this theme at other events!

8) Matt Wood – This picture says it all. This man should win a comedy award, hilarious to point and laugh at when broken, potty mouth when drunk.

9) The Free Stuff – I managed to swipe some pens, bags, notepads, stress balls, tee shirts, mugs, calendars, dvd’s, sweets and best of allllll – waffles! yummy yummy yummy! Everyone likes some free stuff! I even almost managed another grey affiliate hoodie, but it was removed from my possession and given back to its owner. :(

10) Friends old and new – I couldn’t write this without mentioning my new mates and old buddies who i got to meet and catch up with! Great to see you when sober. Surprising how different you all look when not blurred with winre!

All in all a bloody great few days!

I missed loads out, so to those in the know – Cedric and Tom, Poo Bags, My new mum and dad, new climbing frame, farts, Lookie Likies in the pub, shagging/making love, kebabs, chipsy king, upside down cows, my new hoodie, cheeeeseburger, Rodriguez, finger in bum, HAT, she is the boss!!!, Ghent, Fag dash, flapflicker, pimp my car… there is more im sure!

peace! x

I almost forgot, my boss saved a life, nay the internet, nay the world! he is a herp (hero!)

Oh and big up to Chris Clarkson from Sunshine.co.uk for saying “you’re wasting away” I love you dearly for that!

How time flies

WOW, it’s been almost a month since I last blogged. My memory is shocking, so I can’t really remember what I have been doing, except working, struggling to walk and some sleep here and there.

Here is a quick re cap

My Knees
Yup, still buggered. I even saw a physio, who said, as you all have, I have done too much. So I took pretty much the whole of April off, which is odd as I lost a load of weight! nice!

My Social Life
Had the parents to stay, had some friends to stay, went out a few times.

My love life
There has been an addition of a man in my life, not saying too much on here, as I know I am breaking many hearts, ha!

Work
Still working for Existem AM – http://www.existem-am.com

My sites
As with this one, not been touched for WAAAAY too long

I think thats it, must get back into the flow of a daily update, bad Hannah!
