PS.. musings on the party on saturday night.

The party was at John, Katie and Sam’s house as it was John’s party.

It was a fun evening, I got to talk to lots of nice people, mostly women, as it turns out.

One thing did come to light which surprised me. It’s all revolved around
John and Katie talking about going to see the Rocky Horror Show in Oxford
and costumes to be worn. In the conversation there were three of us males
and six females and I was rather taken aback by the ideas for costumes the
women were putting forward and how daring the men targetted would have to
be and how daring they would like to be also. Most of the costumes suggested
either had kinky underwear on full display, which is understandable for Rocky
Horror, or involved dangerous or skimpy clothing with no underwear at all.

Call me sheltered, but I did find it a little shocking.

My sense of being a little sheltered was even more brought to light when
i bumped into Katie on the way home last night. She told me that she’d just
bought herself a new dress for the Dept. Christmas party as she’d worn all
her other party dresses in previous parties. She said it was “very small,
very tight, black and glittery.” My reply was, “Well I guess you’re going
to have to be very careful about what you wear underneath it.” to which her
reply was, “No, I won’t wear anything beneath it, it’s too small and tight.
It should hold all my bits in place well enough.” I was a little taken aback
by this.

Is it very common for women to forsake underwear just as that their clothes look better?

If so, then expect me to be a little shocked more often in future.

Another week goes by.

Let’s see, what’s happened?

Work-wise, the new DVD jukes boxes have been installed, the new colour printers
arrived and have been installed, I’ve been running around like a headless
chicken trying to keep all the juggling jobs in the air at the same time.

Otherwise, my parents arrived last Thursday, left Monday morning. I had a
very pleasant weekend. Went to a birthday party on Saturday evening and had
a fun time socialising.

Monday night I just couldn’t get to sleep ’til 3am. It’s a pitty it was cloudy
as otherwise I could have made use of the time watching the Loenid meteors.

Yesterday afternoon during the afternoon tea I got some hot tea on on of
my wisdom teeth and it started hurting. I thought it was merely heat sensitivity.
However, within half an hour the whole of the gum on the left side of my
mouth, both top and bottom, became inflamed and painful. This has continued
since then along with extreme temperature sensitivity of all the teath on
that sid eof the mouth since then. This kept me awake most of the night dispite
painkillers and lots of toothbrushing and mouthwashing. Either I’ve managed
to get a very fast acting infection or I’ve triggered some sort of allergic
reaction? I don’t know what it is, I just know it’s very painful.
