Novotel Hotel, Bradford


Whenever asked "What do you want to drink?" I always reply "Surprise me...", after a couple of Coronas, many glasses of Bucksfizz, a lot of Champagne with a cherry liquer, 2 bottles of Newcastle Brown, a few Pernod & lemonades and the obligatory JD&Cokes, I stopped asking to be surprised.

Needless to say I didn't want to get up for work today.


This was a very swanky do. It was the Christmas Bash of Hallmark the card people who had gone for a full on Hollywood award ceremony theme.

The ents manager was a nice Scots lady called Lesley(27), who did look after us very well.

After much ripping of Shauns £150 jeans and plenty of drunken garbage, we managed to make our way to the stage - Shaun asking me if I wanted to go outside and have a fight on the way.

"I don't even know you": Lesley (29), Hallmark cards

We had been asked to do a clean show and Shaun had arranged this with nice lady - but be a little bit dirty but - not too much etc, etc. wtf is Norman selling us as? It's like booking Chubby Brown with some exotic Tai ping-pong juggler and asking them not to be crude.

We were just pleased when we finally got onstage, that everyone enjoyed themselves.

We didn't have to ask people us to dance they just did it...or maybe that's because a scotsman was 1st up showing what he wore under his kilt!
