Reverb 10 – Rocking Social Gathering

12 Dec

Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.

Yay for Shauna to throw in a prompt about good times!

This year I’ve been really lucky to attend lots of dinners/parties/even a dinner dance. But the ones that stick in my mind are 2 pub quizzes style quizes with my new colleagues at the time.

1st quiz – school staff, mixed themed teams. Mine was ‘French Connection’ or ‘Yacht bombers’ as one colleague called us. We wore berets, big black fake moustaches and stripes. We came 2nd equal! The banter to and fro was good natured although the 2 quiz masters were strict – wouldn’t like to be a kid messing about in their class! The beer went well with the ‘chippies’ and I was introduced to Jaffas! Not Jaffa cakes but Kiwi spherical red smarties – with no descernable orange taste.

2nd quiz  – I was a member of the staff team at the School Parents group fundraising quiz. We acquitted ourselves well coming 2nd again – even against a professional team! (Who knew they existed?) It was fancy dress again with ever so flattering itchy wigs! Unfortunately we were the only ones dressed up but ach well.

I spose the next pub quiz will have to be at the Cameo, Leith in 2011. – Bring it on.
