Dark Nights

Last week I was working late, it was 7pm and the bell on the shop door rang, I went to serve the customer only to find that they didn't need serving. It was a young women, about my age and she quickly whispered that she was in a bit of trouble. She had been walking from her place of work to where she parked her car down a side street, when a man started walking beside her. She didn't know him, but when he spoke to her he was foreign and told her that he was going to follow her. She saw the lights on in the pharmacy I worked and decided to come in with the pretence of buying something, in the hope that he would get bored and leave, but he told her he would wait outside until she came back.

I looked out of the pharmacy window to see that the man was indeed waiting for her, and reassured the woman that she was ok. I asked two of our drivers to escort the young woman to her car so that the man would get the hint and leave. Luckily, he did.

But what a nightmare! The poor girl was terrified, and with good reason. I was wondering though, if the same situation would have occurred if it was summer? Dark nights seem to lure out dark people!

Lit by Twilight: New Moon

On a FIRST DATE though. Oh I really can't believe that!

Anyway, Sunday night I went to see Twilight: New Moon. It was actually very good considering the book droned on and on and on and.... you get my drift. The author filled a good couple of chapters without one of the main characters and the dullness was almost overwhelming. Stephanie Mayer also really really really.... you get my drift.... wanted the reader to guess that Bella was completely incapacitated with pain due to Edwards absence. She wanted us to know this so much that I got a little frustrated with her, but the film.... that's another story. It was very entertaining and I was impressed at how it managed to stick to the story pretty well without it seeming boring, unlike the book.

While sitting in the cinema Suzie and I noticed a girl standing on the steps that lead to where people were sitting. Even in the dim lighting we could see the near panic on the poor girl's face as she realised that she had completely forgotten where she was sat, and wished she'd just peed herself rather than gotten up to go to the toilet. She gave in and phoned her friend asking for directions back to her seat, all the while Suzie and I were trying very discreetly not to find hilarity in the situation.

But it really was rather hilarious.
Can't deny that.

Oh I've been so busy lately that my blogging duties have been put on the back burner. Last week I worked from Saturday to Friday, then went to a party Saturday, to the cinema to see New Moon Sunday, Christmas shopping on Monday and today...... I put my Christmas trimmings up. Yep, it's that time of the year again folks. WOOOOO!.... That was an actual woo! of joy. I love Christmas.

I don't know where to start though, since going to Manchester I have only managed to stop by and post the Concert videos, so obviously there's a big gap of time where things have been happening but they haven't been documented.


Anyway, talking about Manchester. My friends and I went down Canal street after the concert, in particular we went into a women's bar named Coyote's. During the concert I'd bought a T-shirt from the Merchandise table and had put it on over my shirt so that I didn't lose it, so women in the bar who had missed out on getting tickets for the concert asked me how it went. One woman in particular, I'll call her TeePee, asked for my number. I gave it to her, she was good looking and funny, so why not? A while later I turned around and TeePee was kissing someone. A little while after that she was back talking to me again, and so I simply had to ask if that was her girlfriend. TeePee told me it wasn't, but that they were, in fact, on a first date.


Who gets someone elses number while out on a first date?
TeePee, apparently.

I don't know if this makes me old fashioned or something, but I think that is just rude!
