You've not done Ibiza until you've missed your flight home... ;o)

Just so you know: this page was imported from my old blog. Some pages were rather mangled in the process; my apologies if things don't quite look right.

Hola cheeky-cheekies! It's been a long time since I've actually gotten off my lardy posterior to let you know what's been happening on the madness that is the white isle, so this is probably going to be a helluva long update. Here goes... ;o)

Since I last wrote to you all, I've made it back to Ibiza, and blagged myself a job as a laughing gas sales monkey at one of the bars on the West End strip. The pay was 100% commission - 1 euro per balloon sold (each balloon is 5 euros), but it turned out to be one of the easiest jobs I've ever done:. You get to talk to loads of people, make a shedload of friends - many of which I'm still in touch with - and the money works out really, really well. All good! Oh, and I got as many free drinks as I could manage throughout the 5 hour shift, and free entry to every Eden night. Bonus!

In other "news" (well, it's news to me), I've discovered that saying "yes" instead of "err, nah" to every invite to every party has turned out to be a lot of fun. I've made it to the Cream, Amnesia, Space, Tiesto, Monza, Eden, Wonderland, and a shedload of other closing parties. All were incredible - especially the Space party on Sunday night - and I'd recommend that everyone comes out to Ibiza for the opening and/or closing parties each year. The absolute highlights of the season.

Shipwrecked - a mainly-workers boat party - which sets sail from San An harbour every Wednesday morning, was definitely one of the highlights of the season, and again I've made so many new friends through it I've been finding myself bumping into someone I know every time I turn around in places like Privilege, Amnesia and Space for the last couple of weeks. Only problem is, with my terrible memory for names and faces, everyone's been christened "mate" or "fella" for the last couple of weeks. Still, I don't think anyone's noticed.

The most random thing to happen over the last few days was seeing two absolutely stunning blonde girls escorting two very wrinky old guys (rent-a-date perhaps?) on the beach at Playa des Agua Blanca on the north-west of the island on Saturday afternoon. Thinking nothing more of it apart from the eye-candy value (hey, I'm still a dirty old git at heart), I was gobsmacked to find myself being asked to vacate the sub-box/podium I'd declared my own in the main room at Amnesia's closing party that night so that the exact same two girls - wearing barely any more clothing than they'd been wearing on the beach - could have a dance on the sub box. I even survived the slightly awkward moment when one of them recognised me, turned to her mate, whispered something, and the pointedly ignored me - gotta feel the love there. Hee hee... ;o)

So, what's this about missing my flight you ask? Well, a few nights ago I was complaining to my friend Kate - who I met at the DC10 opening party in August and ended up walking all the way to Bora Bora afterwards, that I was a bit sad to be heading home in the next couple of days. "Why don't you come and live in my villa for the next couple of weeks then?" "Err... Argh! Decisions!" Still, 12 hours later I'd notified the two most important ladies in my life that I was going to stay a bit longer (and they were incredibly cool about it - thankyou ladies :o) and so, at the point I was supposed to be boarding my BA flight home - complete with courtesy meal and drinks - I was actually dancing my arse off with my new housemates at the Hust closing party. Woohoo!

So, the plan for the next couple of weeks is to chill out in the new villa with my new housemates Emma, Kate, Dan, Xander, Mark, Nicky, and the world's coolest kitten Brucey, spend some time in the hammock (we have a hammock - woot!) and do some reading, chilling, and visiting remote parts of the island with the camera (loads of pics to follow - hell yeah).

Hopefully you're all doing well back in Blighty. I'll be back on the 19th October to face the inevitable music, but until then, let the randomness continue.

Love you all! Hope you're all well.

Much love,

Alex - still lost in Ibiza and loving it :o)
