Going out tonight... maybe on my first ever date maybe ever maybe...
But karaoke later in the George. If I win and you see me carrying round a bucket of beers feel free to say hello. I'd rather dish out free beers to people I at least vaguely know then perfect strangers ("what do I look like, the milky bar kid? get ahtta' heah")
I think I'm calling tonight my last karaoke George adventure too: It would be cool to bow out now with a perfect score and besides, I don't think I can handle the fucking volume of drink!
I got plastered every night and I still had to leave beers behind or just give them to randomers.
It was cool though. I think I've made huge leaps forward since January/February with all this gay craic and I have the rather odd scenario of the karaoke in the George to thank for it. It was economical for one (who dosn't want free drink all night for singing one song?). It gave me a chance to be "me" in a gay bar and it was also the perfect excuse for me to talk to people and for people to talk to me, even if it was just a tip on the shoulder or a nod or people saying "hehy nice voice" or whatever.
It was the interaction that counted. I felt less like a stranger observing the gay bar and instead like I was someone interacting.
