We had our department Christmas lunch at Time 4 Thai on Castle Street in Edinburgh yesterday afternoon. I must have walked passed this restaurant a million times and never noticed it, but after a great meal I can imagine being back sometime soon.
As far as Thai food goes I’m not an expert. I know I enjoy green and red curries but that’s about as far as it goes. I’m no connoisseur, which is why that’s what I had for my Christmas meal yesterday. There were around 25 of us packed into two large tables for the meal and a small river of booze, and the atmosphere very cheerful throughout. The service and food was excellent and things took another delightful turn when our Dept. Manager settled the entire bill!
From there we made our way to the Queen’s Arms pub on Frederick Street. Highlights of the night were discussions about Status Quo and groupies, a world record attempt at hugging the most people in an hour, and one of my colleagues pulling his breeks out of his jeans and over his shoulders while still wearing them—the world’s biggest self-induced wedgie! It really was one of the funniest things I’ve ever witnessed.
A few hours of beer and some more shenanigans later, and I was back home tired, a little drunk, but not in too bad fettle. Aware that I would be back in work today I went to bed after something to eat and that was my day.
Today I will take things as they come. I intend to do my day’s work, try and make an impact on my GDR for this month, put the finishing touches to the belated Ranfurly Review, and pack my bag and look forward to what will be a weekend to remember.
Tomorrow I’m going to see St. Mirren in the afternoon, Depeche Mode in the evening, and on Sunday the Nutty Boys are back in town. There might be an awesome story to tell you about that day, something that cannot be revealed just yet, but if it comes off will make the day one of the best.
Spill the beans Mr G!
Cannae – tell ye Sunday 😉
Have a fantastic weekend. I look forward to hearing about it.
Ah, I misread the title as “THE WORLD’S BEST WEEDGIE”.
Expected an essay on exactly that.
But wait… who IS the world’s best weedgie? Cos let’s not forget, there is a weedgie diaspora.
MY TOP 10 WORLDWIDE WEEDGIES
1. The girl who worked at John Menzies (Central Station) in the mid 90s. I think her name was Siobhan. She was . . . ace.
