Summer Festival Fun/Fatigue

So far so good, so tired.  Slept in again this morning due to body staging a protest against its owner insisting it works ridiculous hours, walks constantly and subjects itself to copious amounts of rain for sake of club promotion.  It would quite possibly help if I didn’t go out every time I’m not working, so I really should shut up! 

Highlights so far:

David O’Doherty – very very funny.  Any man who makes jokes about penguins on a plane definitely gets a thumbs up from me.

Melee – only caught the sound-check due to work but awesome, and really nice lads.

Spiegel Garden – why is it such a magnetic force?  I’m clueless but it draws me in regularly, whether for working or play.   Not so fun though at 3am when all you want is to go home to bed but you’ve got to exit-flyer the place and people take soooo long to come out plus a considerable number of people appear to have the wanker gene embedded within.  (NB: to the man who breathed on me with vomit-breath, asking if I’d like to get to know him better, I’m afraid I had to decline. I hope you understand)

The atmosphere – it’s all slightly Mardi Gras-esque, even the most skeptical person can’t help but get swept along a little and find themselves enjoying it a little! 

Ditto the random chat.  The part of my job I love the best are the diverse and, frankly, bizarre chats I have with the thousands of people on club nights as they mill around the Cowgate.  I like a challenge, but some of this chat is random even for me!  Some great people out there though and lots of fun.

The special guest club nights – so many so many, and all for free! This may have something to do with my lack of sleep…

Outhouse BBQ’s – a little bit mental, great crowd, awesome tunes. Dancing to Justice during the day on a Sunday = perfect.

And the downfalls:

Missing dentist appointment that you’ve left work 2 hours early for due to too many tourists talking to the bus driver – grrrrrrr!!!

The hours – who the hell thought 5am was a good idea?  Maybe for you, my beautiful clubbing people, not so much for the staff!  My caffeine intake has trebled during the day.

The rain – why God, why!?!?!?!?!?!!?!? Make it stop, my flyers are stuck together and I look like a drowned freak!

Presets cancelling.  Shite. 

 Still to come:

The last couple of Outhouse BBQ’s – fun fun fun

Pals coming to visit – always at this time of year, brilliant!

Krafty Kutz – I am oiling my dancing shoes as I speak. 

Midnight Juggernauts followed by Slam at Cabaret Voltaire – can there be a better way to spend the evening?  I may need to get that injunction MJ have against me lifted though.

Digitalism.  Enough said.

And finally:

Hydro Connect – quite possibly the event i’m looking forward to most, to be attended by some of the people I love most, plus my first time to see Sigur Ros.  My pop up tent is ready!

But for now, back to work…
