A beach and a pretty girl, if you just drink their potion

I've just got back from a drink in Canterbury [2 nights in a row now!], this time with Students who were on my backstage crew at the Summer Ball. It was nice to go out with some "young 'uns" although I didn't get to do myself proper justice as I had to get the train back to Ramsgate with the last one being at 11:15pm. Bummer, I could have made more of a prat of myself given that extra drinking time!

Once thing I did learn tonight is as follows: NEVER put your mobile phone, some loose change, and a rechargeable battery in your pocket. I was in Wetherspoons and I felt my pocket get hot. Someone had just bought some chips and I wondered if one of them had dropped on me, but 'no', it was infact the case that my mobile phone had heated up my battery, and thus in turn, my coins, resulting in some very hot metal in my pocket! I'm not exactly sure why it happened but I guess it's something to do with the radiation given out by the phone. This has given me some other questions due to the phones almost constant placement in my jeans pocket...such as, as the boys in the barracks fine??


Off to sleep now.

I guess that gives a new meaning to 'hot pants'.

Er, best of luck to the boys! *G*

It's more likely that your metal coins shorted the battery than your phone which is presumably plastic.

Anyhoo, thanks for the tip! :-)

ah... that would make a bit more sense, as I had loads of coins in there which would've completed a circuit.

Silly me.

You're lucky you didn't end up with glo-nads.
