Video transcript

Its that time again the lead up to PAY DAY with all the excitement with all the Emails, Texts, and Phone Calls. Where are we meeting? What time? What are you wearing?

I've have bought new dress, shoes, make up and accessories, this all leads up to the Excitement and Buzz of PAY DAY

Asking others what they are wearing so that we don't clash from shoes to make up .....

At last the day has come. Checking on the internet, have we been paid? Texts flowing looking forward to the girls night out!!

I wake up to my Killers cd to put me in a Party mood. As the day progresses i have a lazy day of chilling taking my time to prepare a girls night out!!

Finally the night comes.

What i  do first? Shower, dry my hair, straighten my hair, paint nails, make up then the final, the perfume.

Some are meeting at 7, others at 7.30. I receive a text to say IM ON MY WAY.  Meeting point at a favourite bar. Seeing everyone smiley, jolly, happy and the music. People chatting, dancing then we ask the dj for our song .....

Now the night going to early hours of the morning there's still a buzz and noises with all my friends one by one going home on high happy note .... and we wait for the next PAY DAY .... For a girls night out!!  

the sound on this is eerie.....Posted on 26/10/2009 at 02:36:37
