ticktockclok Icon : (08 October 2017 - 11:26 PM) Just thought of this place, and figured I would try to log in. I last posted 10 years ago. Hello to anyone out there - especially those from way back!
Res Icon : (06 October 2017 - 03:11 AM) As well as things can be, good to hear from you all :D!!! Much love all around.
X Zolon Icon : (05 October 2017 - 05:02 AM) Strange. I was thinking about it around the same time. Just didn't come back until now. Hope everyone is well.
Glammeress Icon : (16 July 2017 - 12:48 AM) Just thinking about this place, like out of nowhere. Hope everyone is well.
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 04:07 PM) Not bad. Just finishing up grad school. Which means I am looking for distractions from writing. :p
Phieta Icon : (09 July 2017 - 05:06 AM) Still flying, so to speak. How goes with you?
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 02:42 AM) I am even more amazed someone replied to this in less than a few month timescale. Hi! How goes?
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:43 PM) He does log into GW every month or so to retain leadership, so that's something
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:42 PM) There are several of us! Several!
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:33 PM) I was actually hoping to get in touch with Cspace since its been forever. But it looks like our old leader is lost to the void.
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:29 PM) In a moment of pure nostalgia, I remembered this site. Seeing any shouts from this year is insane.

The (After) Life of the Party

Posted by JGJTan  Icon, 13 August 2007 - 09:50 AM

The one thing which sucks about going to a party and getting a little tipsy... people talk about it the next day at school. :P

I couldn't even walk far upon arriving at school when Tim comes along and shakes my hand for a job well done on Saturday night. And two other people waved to me and started smiling and they happened to be at the party as well. Seriously, people should have better things to talk about haha. :P

We had jazz band practice first thing in the morning so Tim decided to tell me all the interesting things which happened on Saturday. Turns out the dirt on the back of Tom's shirt which I pointed out during the party was from him and Sam having a bit of a make-out session in the garden... and afterwards on the sofa and again in the garden. Seriously, some people need to hold it in a little more. There wasn't as much to be embarrassed about this time... apart from the fact I was more or less drunk BEFORE the party even began. People keep twisting the story so I'm going to say it here for historical reference!

During the intermission of the production, I took Tim downstairs since we'd been talking a bit before and I wouldn't tell him why I was taking him down there. I then opened up my favourite wine (Wither Hills Savignon Blanc) and poured us each a glass as a toast to a good performance so far and one for the night. We then walked out... but the wine fired me up and was so warm inside and when I turned to say something to him, we both knew and we went back and had another glass. After that, we went upstairs to continue with the show (still intermission) but as soon as I talked to Cory (he was showing me his music) he just sat back and said I'd been drinking. Now, I didn't realize that two glasses of wine had such a strong effect on one's breath... so I just covered my mouth and didn't speak for a while. But people overheard and soon enough everyone knew I'd been drinking but no one even mentioned anything about Tim which was SO annoying. So I just demanded for lollies from Matt to mask my breath but I needed 3 lollies to cover most of it and tested it on Tom (he hadn't heard about my drinking) after failed attempts on Hannah and Cory and it proved successful! :P

Just before my part I ran down to just have another glass (to warm up and get me pumped for my part) and then got ready for my part. When I went upstairs... everyone was waiting and watching for me to do my part. I got SO annoyed. I wasn't drunk, just slightly happy and people wanted to see this. Ashley was about to rip his face off and kept saying "I hope you don't forget your lines" and Cory and Tom were just peering from behind the curtains to watch me. I ended up remembering all my lines... but I couldn't stop smiling as I said them. I'm meant to be a bad guy with an evil expression yet all I could do was smiling. When I got off stage I ended up just laughing into Tom and then went downstairs... for one last glass. Then up for the bows and wow, I'm pretty sure I sang my heart out because I'd never sung that loud or proud at the performances, ever. :eek:

So after that we all gathered downstairs to remove our makeup and I offered Simon (main character) a glass as a congratulations for a job well done however he declined, yet I eventually got him to just have one sip but he wouldn't have anymore... so I just downed the glass. And Tim ended up taking me back to the changing rooms and offered me 2 glasses of his Cody's so I accepted those and downed them. But then I was having trouble putting the wine bottle back into my bag among all the other stuff and Callum (BLAME CALLUM) suggested that I just finish the bottle at the theatre so I don't have to carry it around. So I did. And then we went up to celebrate with Mr. Leach having shouted us pizzas...

And then it got a little hazy and I ended up at the party, dancing all of a sudden with people all around me and Brendan singing to me. How... interesting. I think I'll just leave it at that. :P

According to eye-witnesses, while still at the theatre, I opened up my second bottle of wine (Saints Chardonnay) and gave Mr. Leach a glass to drink and he fake-drinked to make me happy and then put the glass down and started laughing with Mr. La Marre. Also, Simon called for silence to say the speeches and it happened to be "perfect timing" when there was silence because I was mid-way through conversation and I just said, fully out loud without a care in the world, "I'm so awesome when I'm drunk" in hard out silence. How embarrassing. There's worse but I'm not going to say it here... :eek:

Anyway, jazz band practice was a nightmare. All the music and arts teachers were just cracking joke after joke about drinking and it got so embarrassing. I tried to point my finger at Tim to direct the flow of jokes at him but that backfired and made things worse so it was pretty bad. Some of them were just TERRIBLE, and as Adrian says, "terrible yet so awesome" which is actually pretty funny. The one I'm going to use as my quote ended up making me cry due to laughter. An example of a bad joke was "Ok, everyone turn to Reach Out, we're going to play that one next" "Or in Jonny Tan's case, Retch Up" *bah-doom tshh* "We could all do Zoot Suit Riot instead so Timjah could throw back a bottle of beer" *bah-doom tshh* Seriously, they were BAD. And I couldn't walk around the school without people I knew who were at the party or whose friends were there coming up to me to smile and give me a pat on the back with an embarrassing comment. :sweat:

I'm surprised I actually made it through the day without shooting myself. Even Shaun was like to me during Classics, "Jonny, how was the party? You were SO drunk" and I immediately just turned red and started making loud noises because he said it right in front of Mr. Hassall. I couldn't look at him for the rest of the period. :(

But one thing constantly itching at the back of my mind today. WHY THE HELL DIDN'T I JUST ASK FOR NATHAN'S FREAKING NUMBER? I'm so pissed off because I'll never see him again for a very long time, if ever, and I missed the opportunity to get his number. Even people at school were asking me if I got his number or not and when I said no, they were all shocked and amazed. GRR. I couldn't stop mentioning his name during class and break times and I was just constantly whining about wanting to play Morrinsville again during soccer practice. I'm so sad and desperate. I should have gotten his number...

Mr. Mayall: Woah woah, stop. Trumpets, you guys need to play louder in that bar, just blast it out.
Mr. Botting: Also, to the saxophones, after the 20th bar, the only person I could hear slurring was Jonny Tan.
*bah-doom tshh*
