Sept 2009 Ground Floor Bar 186 Portobello Road drinks On Mika

Recommended Posts

Not me. The girl who was with me, and invited me.

 

As usual, I see the reactions my comments cause...

 

Ah, I see. Is that the other Spanish girl, Mikaclip? She lives in London?

God yes, what about us!!! We are much older :naughty:. I also feel like crap today, I need to get into bed very soon , but it was a fabulous night :wub2:. We had so much fun!

 

Sara you're lovely, it was really, really nice talking to you. :blush-anim-cl:

 

Ahh, I always feel more part of the fanclub when I meet you guys :aah: and it was great that it was a small handful cos I got to interact with you a lot more than I did at previous gigs.

Possibly because you seem to go out of your way to be controversial by saying things you know will rub people up the wrong way?

Ok I know it's not a performance or anything but I wanted to review the night :D

 

Ok so having been on twitter on Sunday night I knew Mika was up to something, but it wasn't until the enxt day at work I had my mother (sparkly1) frantically ringing me with the details lol. So at 6pm I finished work, shoved some clothes on and (like many others) legged it to the pub with unwashed hair and stinking from tube-passed-on-sweat. (lovely).

 

I got there about 6.40 and Sari and some of the others were already there (drink in hand!) So we all sat chi chatting to each other and with Andy starting on the drinks (bear in mind non of us had really eaten either lol so not too wise) it was majorly quiet to start with and we were all hoping it wouldn't get too manic which in all honesty I don't think it did.

 

Cherrise arrived with her faders lead singer friend and she came over and gave us all a wave. She was off with her friends most of the night but had a chat with her at the bar seeing how she was and stuff and she was asking how my stuff was going which was nice :)

 

One weird moment was when my Mum Sparkly1 txt me saying "I've just seen a photo of you lot on twitter talking to Andy" I said "Who's put a photo up on twitter of us with Andy" nobody on the table had any idea, so Babsspanky got the photo up and we work out the direction and I hop over and ask if the people on the table had put up a pic of us lol. mystery solved.

 

The big man arrived at some time bwteen 7 and 8 if I remember, I don't remember the exact time I just remember making some kind of FORMAL announcement like "Ladies he's ARRIVED" he popped over and said Hi but was mingling around the room with various groups so it wasn't like he sat with a pint with us or anything....thinking about it I don't remember seeing him drinking much at all?

 

Anyway so everyone was like sat down and stuff and we were all complaining the music was too loud cos we couldn't really talk...until of course we look round and see Mika behind the desk :D Me being me was finding it hard to sit still so I coaxed Cazgirl up and we went bopping, we found it kinds weird Mika wasn't playing WAG or anything but as I said to Caz who wants to listen to their own shiz right? wrong! Can't remember who but we bullied someone into asking him and we tried to use Daz's gold vinyl he'd brought n Mika wanted the remix version but someone in the pub had the cd and he wacked on the original and seemed rather happy when everyone was singing and bopping about.

 

Me n Caz wangled our way eventually to the front of the booth where Mika was watching everyone as we danced and mouthed along to Prince's Kiss, A song I do in my tap class that I dunno the name of (lol), Dolly Parton's 9-5 and then he wacked on Girls just wanna have fun and came into the crowd to dance with us. was AMAZING.

 

He had this weird naked man necklace thing on which I pointed to and asked what it was and he just shrugged and giggled??? He was filming the front row when me n Cazgirl were dancing and then also when the crazy old man turned up and demanded to dance front centre???? Mika was like WTF and the dj guys just pointed and were like looking confused.

 

I was well chuffed at one point cos Mika was going through someone's iphone and said in my ear (all close I'd like to add) do you want Relax or lollipop? I was like hmmmmm n he just looked at me n pulled a face, I said "relax" n he said "ok" and then dissapeared into the dj booth and popped relax on.....AWESOME :D

 

This woman (presumably from the press) was about n taking loads of photos, particularly of us MFCers as Mika and her were looking our way and pointing and she took close ups and stuff (hopefully they will surface soon?)

 

So it gets to like 11pm and Mika decides it's time he heads off so he drags EVERYONE out of the pub into the street for a giant photo, a lot of the mfc got pushed behind the rabble, I managed to get right next to him but in situations like that you just gotta get in there tbh! Then he had the bright idea of us all sitting on the floor for the photo so everyone could be seen, well he sat down, i practically ended up on his knee, people around started to fall like dominos, then he got stuck and me and some other had to pull him up while he's giggling and pushing to stand again. too funny.

 

Mika. You're a legend

Guys - it doesn't matter who attended the Blackpool gig from which countries. What's done is done. :original:

 

If you must discuss that, please do it in the Blackpool thread; this thread is for talking about 12,000 pounds worth of Mika booze and Mika's fantastic DJ skillz. :roftl:

I don't think Sara was being catty, just a question created out of confusion. That's how I saw it anyway.

 

Thanks Caz, I wasn't being catty, no. Just setting the record straight that's all.

 

 

 

Indeed.

 

I haven't entered the Belgian and Munich competitions for the simple reason, I don't live there!

I didn't win a ticket for Blackpool, I was lucky to get one from Anglecakes, but may have had a better chance if these guys hadn't entered.

There were only 5 Will Young fans there, more could have come if those tickets were available.

It wasn't just MFCers that lost out here.

 

 

Agreed Rose- And this has been my point all along when we were discussing this issue.

Aw CRAP! You were in the UK for the Blackpool gig, but then you went back to Spain before you could arrange to be in London for this?

 

Man, that sucks! I'd be gutted if I were you, having just been in the UK and missing it by so little. :huglove:

 

I found it comforting, actually, that it was so flipping far away and there was no way I could have gone. :roftl:

 

Don't you worry! There will be plenty of occasions in the future... :huglove:

I even said "are you going to play WAG?" - not "we are golden", I actually said "WAG" lmao!! What a goon!

WTF lol?! That's so retarded. Well, the first drink didn't really taste that much like malibu but it was fine and drinkable. The second time I'm pretty sure it was.

 

I also went there with unwashed hair :roftl: (in reference to your report)

AND THEN PAUL O'GRADY ON THE 21SSSSSTTTT!!!!! :woot_jump:

 

Do you have any idea how spoilt we are :blush-anim-cl:

I wonder if Mika will start recognising me like he recognises you guys? I've only just started to show my face on a more regular basis. That's how it feels anyway.

I've often thought this and especially after last night, but I think Mika is so much better looking in the flesh. I mean he is very photogenic, but in real life he's just something else.

 

And this is so true.

Yup, like a true traditional British gent LOL. You can tell he lived through the war, he's stuck in that time period :naughty:

He's one of those old men that appears to never know what's going on around them lol

sorry about that....next time I'll most definitely have the courage :teehee:
