Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3048 And it's straight down to business in Chutney's, with only an hour to decide what we want to eat...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3049 ...and an hour can be a long time when you're waiting to order, as some guests' expressions testify
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3050 It's the refined end of the table (and Rach)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3051 The birthday boy and birthday girl
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3052 Rach and Simon (not a couple)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3053 Anna and Ash (a couple)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3054 Dom and Aron (they ought to be a couple)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3055 Ellen and Bobby (the odd couple)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3056 Hannah (half of another couple) entertains Mr. James Lea Blackham, who very kindly made the trip up from London for a couple of hours to be there.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3057 Alex and Des (we didn't think they were a couple until we saw this photo)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3058 Sarah gets one over Blackham by flying in especially from America to be there
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3059 Niall assumes his best "quitely putting up with Nick" face
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3060 Les femmes fatale dominate the centre of the table
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3061 evidently scaring Blackham off.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3063 Ganesh and Amanda (a couple until you mention computers or a pizza hut, at which point they become a wrestling match)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3065 Ross (can one be coupled to Coca-Cola?)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3066 Catherine and Nick (a couple)
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3067 I've heard that people who drink enough wine
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3068 will start eyeing up anything *ahem*
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3069 The bill calculations continue long into the night
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3070 allowing another shot of the refined end of the table
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3071 quite a contrast to the other end, anyway
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3072 aargh, 20 more captions to write...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3073 Dave wins the "walking like a robot" competition
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3074 but is soon cut down to size when handed a book straight out of the oven at 200C
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3075 Nick starts doing a striptease in the corner
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3076 Bubble wrap!
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3077 The entries in the "most impressive blow of nose" competition are inspected
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3078 Obligatory sock shot
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3079
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3080 Sometimes, I scare myself
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3081 but more recently, I've been scaring Nick
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3082 yes, there is a good reason for this.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3083 The flagging guests feign interest as Dave begins his "When I become Prime Minister" speech...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3084 Erica leads the dancing
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3085 meanwhile somehow this...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3086 ...turns into this.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3087 Catherine respectfully averts her eyes as Dave starts strutting his funky, er, stuff.
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3088 ...but it takes Nick's assistance to make Helen strut hers...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3089 ...and we know how useful Nick's assistance is.

Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3091 In response to friendly jibes by Dave (geez, how many times have I had to write my own name tonight? I'm on all of these blooming things), Rach delivers a warning by going out and returning in her combat skirt. Time to leave gracefully, we reckon...
Photo /users/dave/kodak/2001/3092 And thus endeth my time at Magdalen... with my mark on the college recorded in nothing more than this yearbook entry.
