A Night Out With Bronte

Hi All,

Sorry for taking so long to post a new message, I told you this blog thing might not go so well!! Hehe, anways, I had a pretty eventful night with my buddy Bronte on Saturday.

As you do in Darwin, we visited 'Ducks Nuts' at the start of the night, had a drink (I had a coke), and checked out the more fashionable population. We then proceeded to the 'Lost Arc' where we grooved to older music, which we know and like, because, shock horror, we are kind 'old'. The song 'Mambo Number 5' came on by Lou Bega, and ofcourse we danced to that and put in our own 'trumpet' movement, which was VERY amusing. I requested 'Don't Stop Moving' by S Club 7 so we could do the 'robot' and crack up laughing. At about 12am we went to the 'Vic' and there proceeded to 'play' other instruments, these included the following:
  • bagpipes
  • piano/keyboard
  • guitar
  • harp
  • flute
  • drums
  • trumpet (again)
  • saxaphone
  • recorder
  • cello
  • violin
  • woogie board (Rolph Harris style)
  • our own mouths (making that popping sound with one finger)
  • our armpits (trying to make a fart sound)

I don't know what other people thought of us, but honestly I didn't care!! I had fun making Bronte almost fall over laughing, and I'm sure she had fun doing the same to me. I haven't laughed like that in a long time. Our 'instrument playing' was interspersed with bouts of the 'robot'.

All in all, it was a really good night, even though I stunk like cigarettes afterwards.

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: I bet when the neanderthal kids would make a snowman, someone would always end up saying "Don't forget the thick, heavy brows". Then they would get all embarrassed because they remembered they had the big hunky brows too, and they'd get mad and eat the snowman.
