Day of Reconciliation at the Beach

Posted by lanktank on December 17, 2008

As we all know or should know, yesterday was the Day of Reconciliation. A day to reconcile, reunite, merge and bring together! (Yes, I just said words that all meant the same thing). Which was quite fitting actually as a friend of mine just got back from the UK so we were all going to “come together” and do something fun.

After we couldn’t think of anything, we decided to go to the beach… Camps Bay beach to be exact. I’m just kidding, I love the beach. The only thing better than being on the beach, is being on the beach, drinking. Or maybe it’s just drinking… I can’t decide.

As it was a super hot day, we arrived to a very busy, people filled seashore. The reason for this seemed to be, besides the very warm weather, that there was an Idols promotion going on the one side.

Basically it was a big stage with Idols posters everywhere and giant speakers on either side. From what I could gather, one could go up, select a song and sing karaoke in front of the whole of Camps Bay. Girl Next Door explained to me that Idols auditions were the next day and this was to encourage people to try out.

Now you can imagine the type of people going up to sing. I mean, it’s 1 ‘o clock in the afternoon, so for most of the contestants, no alcohol is involved and it’s those type of people who you know think they totally rock the house but in actual fact suck the dick. And this is all good and well, I would expect no less from this type of situation but it was the presenter that completely cracked me up… Read the rest of this entry »

The Coke Zero Experience

Posted by lanktank on November 12, 2008

Last Friday, a group of us decided to go watch a couple of bands at The Assembly. Now I love The Assembly but there have been a few buzz-kill bar experiences (like waiting over 30 minutes to get to get a drink) which have brought down the: “Enjoy-ability of the night vs amount of Hunters Dry in my body” ratio. It’s not the most dignified confession to make but a huge portion of my clubbing nights depend on how easily accessible the alcohol is from the bar to my lips.

I clearly wasn’t the only person who was a little worried about the pending night out because when the masses arrived at my house for a pre-Assembly drinks warm-up, a number of them had brought the necessary elements needed for a successful middle-of the-evening car bar – Vodka and Coke Zero 500ml bottles. Now I know what you’re thinking; being 24 and all I really should be steering away from cheap, student life manoeuvres but in my defence, it wasn’t my idea (although I was ashamed I hadn’t thought of it first) and the main instigator of it ALL was 27! So… not really sure how any of that defends my point. Moving on… Read the rest of this entry »
