“Hoooooow shall we extoooooool thee…”

Three years ago, Silke and I had the good fortune of meeting Emily and Melanie while singing along to the Last Night of the Proms in our favourite pub. Naturally, we also celebrated this year’s Last Night together, albeit in the comfort of Em’s and Mel’s flat, together with another friend. There is even a video of four of us screeching singing along to “Land of Hope and Glory”, with Silke whistling with her fingers at the end; when I sent this artistic masterpiece to Robert, he texted back, “Just how drunk were you?!” Not drunk enough to post it on this blog.

Vor drei Jahren hatten Silke und ich das Glück, Emily und Melanie beim gemeinsamen Singen zu Last Night of the Proms in unserer Lieblingskneipe kennen zu lernen. Natürlich haben wir auch dieses Jahr die Last Night zusammen gefeiert, allerdings ganz gemütlich in Em’s und Mel’s Wohnung, zusammen mit einer weiteren Freundin. Es gibt sogar ein Video, auf dem vier von uns “Land of Hope and Glory” mitkreischen mitsingen und Silke am Ende auf den Fingern pfeift; als ich dieses künstlerische Meisterwerk an Robert schickte, fragte er per SMS, “Wie betrunken wart Ihr?!” Nicht betrunken genug, um es auf diesem Blog zu posten.

Last Night of the Proms.

    Love it! x

    But don’t go out with any of the performers. They’ll wreck you.

      Thanks – and no, I won’t.

      Glad to see you back, by the way, although I am bummed for you that the circumstances are what they are. If you are still down for that trip to the pub, let me know. x
