Up around 4am,
besides money, I worked a long time on the simple stupid
the diet (on the left side) Drove me crazy!!
Listening to classic
rock on an English radio station, but now I'm going back
Got up at 9:30am, a
quick 75 calories on the walker.
Left for the
Amy & Brian's wedding
at Pipers Heath Golf Club about 2pm arrived at 2:30, set
up for the ceremony first, one speaker for the minister,
one speaker for the music. I had stopped on the way
there to buy a large Cadbury's Fruit and Nut Bar
(500calories) and a bottle of diet Coke. It gives a
cheap buzz that gives me a little more energy for the
night ahead. The ceremony was an annoying distance from
the club house, but there were guys in golf carts
shuttling people both ways. It was a nice day, sunny yet
no humidity. I set up for the reception using the new
laptop for background music, saving the old reliable
laptop for emergency at the ceremony, where my iPod was
the main music source. The minister talked so quietly
even with the mic., and I didn't turn it up as he would
just talk even quieter.
The regular meal for
the guests was a fancy chicken plate, but by time they
got to the poor DJ (always last) they had run out. So I
ended up with a huge steak, cooked perfectly, with
a sauce that was delicious, followed with my favourite
Apple blossom, with fruit on top.
A good night, a party
crowd, I had never walked on such a sticky dance floor,
but then I have never seen so many broken glasses and
spilled drinks. Reminded me of Brenda a regular customer
who always wanted me to ban drinks on the dance floor,
and I always reminded her it was not my job to tell
grown ups how to behave.
I had internet, and
downloaded 3 songs I had never heard of. I played from
their list for about 30 mins, then I played my picks to
get them going, and after that I mixed between the good
from their list and mine. One of the guests plugged
their guitar into my system, he was good (and drunk) and
they had a session for about 30 minutes with the
groom doing some of the singing.
The club shut me down
early at about 1:10am , I was out of there by 2:00,
stopped at the bank to deposit the check (no envelopes,
but I had my own) was home and in bed by 3:15am
I was feeling a lot
better than the last time DJ'ed , just a few
pounds makes a difference...
