A Flock of Seagulls

Contrary to popular belief, I've not been building homes and feeding leper children from the slums of Calcutta. Yearend contemplations dampen my magnanimity although its the Season of Giving. A thought for the people of Kelantan, was spared though. Same sex disco dancing is so passe.

Back when A Flock of Seagulls was a singing orgy, I threw a party for boys. It was a Newton like discovery.

What do you expect when the parents had to leave for 2 days and you have one day to organize the party to end all parties and the girls on your list usually need like a week to convince their parents its safe to come over to my place since I wear my sister's clothes because it was New Romantic to do so.

5 guys turned up.

After an hour of square dancing, we thought it wised to merge with another party in the neighbourhood since silhouettes of girls were spotted. It was a merger of almost equals. 12 guys and 2 girls ended up square dancing.

Moral of the story. Make sure your mum and baby sister are away if you dont want the party to end at 10.30.

I conveniently place all memories of sausage fests in the back of my mind. Way, way back. Even kept a vow of silence.

I still have nightmares.

How funny!!!

Btw, the party at my hse never ended at 10.30pm, even when I was 15. Boys and girls stayed till whenever they like...

I don't know which is scarier: you dressed in your sister's clothes or a bunch of fellas in girls' clothing square dancing.

i remember guys with those hairstyles would have (and might still have) a round flat plastic brush with the handle (sikat bulat) in the back pocket. from time to time will whip it out and comb their hair, then fingered their 'remos' into shape

I hope you remembered to take out the shoulder pads from your sister's clothes. That woulda been, so...salah. Merriest Christmas and Happy HOlidays to ya!

I remember a party someone organised for me in Scouserland.

There were girls (all m'sian students) all right but were like sitting among themselves and the boys among themselves.

I was about to go up to a pretty one when someone pulled me aside. Apparently if you approach anyone for a dance, it was like proposing to go steady with the girl.

I was out of there the next day. It was like a National Geographic excursion into tribal hinterlands.

BTW didn't lose any hubcaps there ... :D

sicko said...

yati, Have a good one yourself!

bk, the comb was not just functional but a fashion statement. you were observing as an adult?

leen, thanks sweetie!

anon, not sure what you're on about.

sir cipan, this must have been in the 50s. :D

For nostalgic purposes, I give you "I Ran (so far away) by A Flock of Seagulls.

Yup, I ran and ran away, so far away from any memory of sausage fests.
