New Year was interesting...................... Michele, Clair and Cathrine came to the Nile Pharoah to see me dance. I preformed downstairs- then had 20 mins over the bells when I could sit with them and see in 08 together before changing to perform my next set. this was the order of events to brin in new year....
1- the bells- ( a recording of big ben- which rang for at least 18 times.....)
2- the music- faint sounds of the birthday song being played as the bells counted down..
3- 00:00- Happy Birthday song played at full blast?????!!!!
4- the manager gets me up to dance with him- and all the staff surround us and clap and sing... then one boy who danced really well joins us.
5- Another manager refuses to dance- so the entire staff grab him ( a large strong serious type of a man) and together they give him the 'dumps' throwing him up into the air over and over, with his nose just barely missing the ceiling!
and to top the lot- santa- yes santa in the full red suit and bizarre scary mask, on hogmany, doing a conga line (yes- a conga line) through the restaurant with all the staff members on tow..................
oh- and then cathrine had to leave the boat early to go catch her flight... so a speed boat collected her from the boat- very james bondish!!!!!
oh- and I danced a bit too.................and a bit more.....
so, how did you see in 2008? was it as crazy as that???????????
Since then I have had a couple of days work, and spent some time with Michele before she too went back to Scotland, and now trying to catch up on the 'normal' stuff of seeing friends here, sorting photos and catching up with the blog!
oh- and Found a lovely Indian restaurant last night- just walking distance from my house- great food and reasonable prices.... just off Sharia Lebnan. very nice.
