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!

Affiliate Get Together In London

I usually don’t write about work, but as this was a party I am making an exception.

food-003After about 3 hours sleep (mainly due to Monkey going missing) I arose at stupid o’clock to head off to London with the boss man Mark. Thanks to Mark for buying breakfast – it was much needed! We went to a number of meetings around London before heading back to get ready to go out. 29th-march-2009-004On the way to somewhere (bad memory) I spotted a brand new form of advertising, basically, some people had steam cleaned mould in the form of adverts! I thought it was awesome and very inventive, mark not so much.

I had decided to buy a new outfit to hopefully show off my new slender figure – ‘lesbian’ was the comment I got. So I am not sure if that is good or bad!?! We had a quick drink in the bar with Elaine, Dave, Julie, Nick? (crap with names – Just found out, it’s Dan! oops) Jason and John – and to be honest the excitement, lack of food and tiredness meant the wine hit my head pretty quickly!

Off to the bar and a great job had been done organising, and I got to catch up with so many old friends and new faces that I had so far only met via the forum or msn! good times! I can’t be arsed to name everyone as I would be here all night, but you all know who you are.

A few games of pool, and yes I lost miserably, a distinct lack of available men for me to flirt badly with and lots more wine later and the night begins to blur. You see if people give me booze, I drink it. Apologies to anyone I met, I don’t remember talking to you, I most probably did something stupid, so sorry!

There is a vague recollection of the limbo (ragga ragga) and me doing the splits for the first time ever in my life (ouchy)

A few of us headed to Heaven (a gay bar, not the spiritual place) – So big up to J Lil, Mark, Mikey, Adam, Graham and Jo… I think that’s everyone! I hope! Bloody wicked night! Team XTreme you never cease to amaze me!

In we went at Heaven, and we had been in there no more than 5 minutes when Gay Porn Idol began, which basically consisted of 10 hot fit guys stripping and dancing. Number 3 got our vote. I think it was him who pulled out the ‘willy windmill’ – you gotta love a willy windmill! Here is ME DRUNK

Some more dancing later, and I have no clue. I know I got home at 5am, complete with Mark’s coat (it’s mine now) and very sore feet. I arose the next morning to much piss taking and many bruises. I was supposed to have anpther meeting but the boss man booked the wrong frigging train, so it was a mad dash to the station. I got home to be greeted by and angry Monkey and my parents. Oh the pain!

Here are the pics I managed on my shitty phone!
