friends, this is your very own shenanigans here. at last, i hear you cry.. yes, i am posting for the first time on these magic cauldron wordpress pages that the ever glorious mittins has engineered for us.. this is indeed an exciting event, and i hope to keep the standard as high as the old mitton has set.
however, i am forced to keep it relatively brief today, because time is proving precious.. for i have a thrilling evening in store for me, at the hilton hotel, no less, on the glitzy auckland waterfront.
along with a select few colleagues, i will be propping up the hiltons’ swish, ultra modern and allegedly sophisticated bellini bar, swilling the finest pink gin and stuffing the old pie hole with fresh lobsters, fricasseed in a pate de fois gras. perhaps.
the hilton hotel, princess wharf, auckland
as regular listeners of our show on fleet fm are no doubt well aware, your one shenanigans is no sailor. however, despite my nautical shortcomings, i managed to secure a second place in the TV Factorys’ annual regatta, last week. with said work-friends. we were a veritable crew. actually, if truth be told, i am a landlubber through and through and not much use on the open seas; i went ‘below decks’ when the heavens opened. anyway, to cut a long story short, at the prizegiving a $250 hilton voucher was gifted to the team for our admirable efforts. the very voucher which will be put to good use this evening.
so you will forgive me, please, as i dash.. for i need to shower and shave and source a suitably sparkling shirt, on the off chance that the young paris will be serving the drinks. rest assured, dear reader, that if i do spot the haughty heiress, you will be the first to know.
