Yes indeedy, it’s listmas time again, and here’s the one you’ve all been waiting for, the Kyan team top tunes of the year.
Tuesday December 9th. We all arrived at the office as usual but this was no ordinary day. The Kyan Christmas do, 2008 edition, had arrived. Perhaps a little early and on a school night no less, but we were ready.
The activities of the day ahead had been kept secret with only three clues drawn out of Piers in the days previous. They were:
Latin, Shouting & Cross-dressing.
Some of us were excited, others were nervous.
The day before it had been revealed that we would be heading to Camden Town, London. A slap up meal was booked at the extravegant Gilgamesh restuarant.
Extravagant because, and I quote, “Every chair, every table has been hand carved to precision to tell the story of Gilgamesh. The marble pillars are covered in inlaid with Lapis and mother of pearl…”
It was quite something. Especially with celebrity chef Ian Pengelley providing his acclaimed Pan-Asian cuisine.
After dinner the main event was revealed…
Luch Libre, as if you didn’t know, is essentially the Mexican version of America’s WWE wrestling but with midgets and transvestites. I’m not joking.
The highlight of the evening was probably not the wrestling however. That honour has to go to a certain Steven Wake for wearing the wrestling mask we all chipped in to buy him for the entire night. Including the full tube and train journey home to Guildford at the end of the evening.
What a legend.
