The Events: Diary: December 1999 (January 2000)
Midnight approached... big ben chimed...
out came the party poppers, the random running around the street with fireworks
going off all around and lots of hugging and jumping!
It's the new century! Paul
with his hands in the air!
All those Tequilas come at a price don't they Donna... what a mess in the
sink we had!
past- the inevitable low... Donna, Tom & Sheena on the settee
After midnight and through to 9am
part 1 part
2 part 3 part
4 - A very long sample (27 mins) which I decided to leave unedited.
It has some 'interesting' & controversial views shall we say... It
is split into 4 parts for ease of download.
The party faded a little after midnight-
although not entirely! A few people found corners to collapse into while
the rest of us carried on partying right through the night! I distinctly
remember a crazy drinks rush and a load of dancing at about 4am...
Paul gets attached to the fairy wings- and sleeping begins on the settee...
Sheena munches on a chocolate
cake- I did that later on... I 'ate it out' in a rather extra ordinary
to realise we've been partying over 10 hours now...
I'm looking somewhat like a zombie by now...
Jones and his
can of John Smiths!
Amongst the madness- Nick
is chillin' out behind the bar!
- Warm walls, a tie and some nipples...
DJ desk area with Spanner (with fairy wand) and Jones & Mat at the
We zoom in
to see Mat & Jones choosing the tunes for the early morning playlist!
Spencer with rolled up trousers-
not entirely sure why...
Mat is behind the bar once more... You can see the computerised till on
top of the fridge, both put in for the party.
As the night wore on and it began to get light....
Spencer on the stairs!
- Tiredness hits many who begin sleeping and we contemplate the time...
- We were waiting for the sun to rise, some wanted chips others wanted
part 1 part 2-
Looking for that sun again in part one followed by me recording myself
in the toilet... yes I did cut this bit slightly! Part 2 is a short snippet
saying how we'll have to do it again. This originally was a 10 minute sample
but was mostly us just standing outside waiting for the sun...
- Another short one- we mention the 'spare room' and I give up recording...
The sleepy sofa! But Jones
And later... sleepy Julie!
And from a
different angle too!
Donna was feeling very rough
indeed by about 8am! The remains of our '2000' sign now pinned to the stairs-
it'd been a good party!
- Final recording of the party- we're tired yet still find the energy to
talk about the 'muffin muncher' incident where I ate a chocolate muffin
in... style.... Martin & others leave for Macdonalds and I sign off....
