We went to what was billed as a 'Lil Chrismas party' last night. It was basically just an album launch with some tinsel.
Peaches Geldof was DJing beforehand which was AMAZING — she'd literally stop one song then start the next on a complete whim. Bored of a track by the end of the first chorus? No problem — just whack on the next one. Amazing.
Chris seemed to perform most of the album (we were already quite drunk by the time he came on, which somewhat tragically was at 7.10pm) as well as a cover of Justin Timberlake's 'SexyBack', featuring the line "take it to the walrus". Apparently he performed the track on Jo Whiley recently.
NB: There is currently no more annoying a phrase than "they did it on Jo Whiley".
Of course it wasn't just about pop and tinsel — because combining three of the world's most amazing inventions there was also a BUFFET made entirely of MINCE PIES and CHOCOLATE.
In the toilets, one of our friends was informed by a pair of moody teenagers that she was too old to be at the gig. Our friend is 23 years old.
