Last night something amazing happened. Natty had a party or a gathering of the clique as it was back in college. Back on the National, me and Natt used to hang out in the Student Lounge for most of our time towards the end of the second year. There was a table in the corner and we would set up our laptops, hook up to the net and do our work, amongst other things, and drink the college out of tea and Dr Pepper. Those were fun times. It was always the same group of us congregated around this table, Me, Nathaniel, Fringe, Bean, Lydia and Ant. We'd talk, laugh and then get the bus together at the end of the day.
To get the group back together for the first time in about 2 years (it has been LONG overdue to be fair) and spend a night with some drinks, some games and laughing ourselves silly was so refreshing. Even invigorating. Yes I slept on a sofa and am in desperate need to change my clothes and bathe, and yes my hair has that post houseparty tousled look and I really need a good nights sleep, I feel absolutely amazing. I feel around 24 again and not 94. I'm happy and its a good way to feel.
I got up at 12 today after getting to bed at around 3/4 AM. Me and Nat had stayed up gaming for hours, which isn't anything new and we finally finished my game of Portal among other things, Alien Hominid, and the lot of us had played a mammoth session of Rockband (that game is so much more fun the more people you get in to it and I doubt the neighbors will forget our renditions of "Don't Stop Believing" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" any time soon, although half the problem was I kept cracking up and losing composure whenever there was a wisecrack or Ant made some kind of noise that can only be described as honking!) and drinking games. It was great fun and it was just what I needed really.
