Crying in the rain
I had a great time last night. 

Leon invited me out over a week ago to a karaoke he had found not far from where he works.  We met up in a "spoons" nearby, had a nice curry and a couple of pints and headed off to the pub with the karaoke.

It was being refurbished... but they had opened the upstairs bar which was tiny and the owner/manageress fearing we'd all been put out had laid on complementary nibbles!  The night started slowly... one of the bar staff can sing Lilly Allen songs so you can't tell it's not the CD!

I had a look through the booklet and found out they didn't do "my karaoke song"... Up the junction by Squeeze... and so decided I wasn't going to sing as I'm not really confident or indeed a singer!  But karaoke is all about making a bit of a fool of yourself it seems... I'm not sure what got into me (other than the Guinness) I put my name down for "A crazy little thing called love"... and sang it to a room of mostly staff!

The place really started to fill up but this didn't stop the madness... and I found myself singing the Everly Brothers' crying in the rain.

I managed to get home without event, and did a IQ test on Facebook (which I scored surprisingly highly on considering my brain was swimming in beer) and sent of a quick message or three... which could have been dangerous but I appear to have been remarkably responsible in my drunken messaging... there is a first for everything.

This morning I was ruing the whole drink thing - but I'm in work and the day is coming to an end.
