Thomas’s 30th Birthday Party

October 29th, 2005 | Posted by Davey in Pre-Travel Posts - (2 Comments)
Hmmm… where do I start…London town, copious amounts of alcohol, urban cowboy (you’ll see later), “she shot me down”…unless you were there you just wouldn't get it, noon till early mornings…etc. etc.

Normally…when you hear that one of your best friends is throwing a birthday bash you get all excited and can’t wait for the delightful occasion…but when you hear Thomas Leydon is throwing a birthday bash and a gang of your best friends are on route from Ireland...to tell you the truth… it sends a cold shiver down my spine knowing that I would need to start working double shifts for the extra dollearos and pre-book the Priory for some rehabilitation.

Well… the weekend went as predicted…an olympic workout on my abs from laughing, a mammoth black hole in my wallet and 5 days of cold turkey. It’s not often that Sam and I get to meet up with the lads and their perspective partners… but boy when it happens is it worth it! I think the laughing is still ringing in my ears 3 weeks later…to be honest, I could try and describe as best I can the banter, the slag’n, the crying, the drink’n…but unless you know the individuals in question…it would like trying to describe an orgasm to a nun…they just wouldn’t get it!

It’s a weekend, like all the weekends we meet up…I think I will carry it to my grave…although I do have some photos and videos to aid my reminiscing…please make sure you play the videos…

You know who you are…thank you for an absolutely fantastic weekend...

The culprit…Thomas and his fiancée Loraine…not really his fiancée, it’s just a matter of time before we get the announcement…please don’t tell me there’ll be another party…

This is a small snippet of the weekend…Ben, a true and original performer, an Al Pacino in the waiting … a video taken on my compact camera (apologies for the quality) of an ‘off the cuff’ stunt…called Urban Cowboy…absolutely hilarious…
