As the Night Burns On: INFERNO

Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
George Washington
First president of US (1732 – 1799)

I have only met the people from the Perth group a few weeks ago during an meetup at the Oak & Ivy Pub in the city after waiting for another member N___, to turn up whilst I was reading A Comedy of Errors at a close CAT bus stop and looking out rather like a paranoid for a complete stranger. But, as weeks roll on and I met again at a party, I realized how important these guys were to me. There was M_____, who doesn’t seem to know how to control his mouth when it comes to racist comments about Middle Easterners who is a self-confessed Hoon, A___, who is part-Persian who seems to take a fast liking for me and get into arguements to do with music often, N______, who doesn’t dress up like the rest of us because she couldn’t be bothered, and is the first out of the two “Mother Hens” in our group of oddballs, S____, who is the second one and gets unwanted attentions due to her oranges, J_____, the shy one who doesn’t seem to speak much until he reaches the ‘Ol Bottle, N___, the Dear Leader who looks at home in a rally, C____, who could be guardian of sorts, since he looked older than the rest, and K___, who is pretty much a anime fan/Noobcake and John, the knight in shining armor, risking life, limb and cash to get people home safe. The party started with just me, J___, N______, S____ and no one else with balloons, streamers and copious amounts of Flake; we even “attacked” N___’s pet cat with a short green one to decorate it with. Then, the rest came in their cars, with M_____ leading the charge when it came to bringing slabs of beer and alcohol consumption and the immortal words of (aimed at J_____), “Get out of the car, you flaming homo!” and starting our barrel-fire, which got us into a tizzy with the nearby Fire Department, of which S____ and N______ had to explain away before we all saluted as they drove past (proving that the age-old lie of Pre-Australia Day celebrations are a very good excuse for starting one and keeping going). I then fell victim to many of the snacks littering the place, with A___ and J_____ trying to wrench them off me for most of the night, chasing me around the establishment like a footy match gone horribly wrong with no apparent referee in sight and no goal to score points, then there was N_____ and A___ the Alien arguing about musical tastes, mostly the words David and Bowie. Everyone then vented frustrations with the obvious lack of marshmellows or meat to accompany the fire and M_____’s constant tirades of beating J_____ at Club Sin the moment he sets eyes on the poor sap. In short: A pretty good night! 🙂
