Why did I agree to this...

"Cabaret of days gone by is the order of the day, courtesy of the Marie Lou Revue, Comedian Magician Steve Klinsky and a smattering of surprise burlesque - all wrapped together and delivered by Mr Dusty Limits with wit as sharp as Kate Moss's cheekbones - hell, her razorblade even"

This is what I'm going to tonight. What was I thinking of? I think I was dazzled by the array of cocktails on offer.

Its for a friend's birthday, a girls night out apparently which is not something I usually do. At the same birthday last year, one of her other friends (notice I'm distancing myself from them) was sick into her wine glass. It was truly one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen and it was only about 8.30, although to be fair, her aim was quite good. The warning signs were there though as this girl had got rather aggressive earlier in the evening when I asked if her beads were from Topshop and I thought she was going to hit me over it. She caused panic by thinking she had lost her bag which turned out to be on her chair. Then came the wine glass incident.

I ask again, why I am I going?

So how was it? As awful as you feared? Did the wine glass vomiter turn up? Did she manage to get through the night without incident?

To be honest I'd be same as it's not my kind of night out, but you have to do these things from time to time and sometimes they turn out ok, unfortunately sometimes not.

I do wonder if it's a London thing as before I lived here I used to go down the pub or out for a meal. have a few drinks and nice night out. Nowadays I seem to be invited to full on 'fun' nights with activities and very expensive drinks usually leading to unsavoury incidents...

I'm hoping your evening was one of those instances when you dread it, but then have a good time because your expectations were low to start with. Failing that, I hope it was over quickly and you're not feeling too fragile this morning.

It wasn't too bad actually. The cabaret was 'interesting' - not really my thing and I doubt I'll ever go again, but not so bad.

The wine-glass-vomiter was there but quite civilised, and I was very restrained on the alcohol so it didn't interfere with the rest of the weekend.

Why would beads from TS be offensive? Mad drunken girl!

Because she thinks its common! Which is bizarre as most of her clothes are from cheaper shops.
