I have managed to recover after a night sleepless night although I paced myself with any ingested substances knowing that I don't want to feel like shit the next day. My compadre definitely looked maxed out on the journey back to Liverpool XD
I don't really go out to raves and or concerts much anymore so this was a pleasant and totally enjoyable change. Tark's friend Clare was nice enough to put us up for the night, which in the end we didn't really need as we didn't sleep at all, only dropped our stuff at hers. Nevertheless, was great fun hanging out together, and seeing she's of Polish descent there was lots of common topics from the get-go.
The rave itself, as any rave, full of various stimuli. The music, on-stage acrobatics, decorations and lighting were top notch, as was my company for that. Talkative Tark made sure we made some new friends along the way too. I was mostly focused on dancing my ass off for most of the night, which I have happily accomplished.
Met a local furry too, who was totally swaying his tail all shirtless and cute. But also had a very brief scuffle with some drunken waste of breatheable air who threw some homophobic slur at him. Security took care of that scumbag at least and we managed to enjoy the rest of the night. Maybe apart from one horny chick who unsuccessfully tried to pick me up. Oh well.
All in all a fun night out and definitely one experience to savour. I have to say I am pretty glad that when I do want to go to a rave there is someone local who's always happy to go. As a matter of fact he does much more than me in that regard anyway. Guess in any case these things help make you feel like a juvenile snap ^.=.^
Seeing I don't do it often it was definitely a night to remember as on the Feb 5th I joined my friend Tark at the Illuminaughty rave at Manchester's Ritz.
