Busty takes one in the face for DM

busty againThe things I do for you, dear readers. As most of you will know, yesterday was London Underground strike day. And, call me old-fashioned, but it was possibly not the ideal day to traipse up to London for not one, but two, crucial events in the direct marketing calendar – the DMA Summer Lunch and the Summer Adlib Drink-up.
My poor little tootsies are aching like hell today. You wanna try walking half-way around the capital with these kitten heels and my famous 38DDs.
Still, where there’s free alcohol to be had, Busty will get there – eventually. Not that I had an invite to the Summer Lunch, you understand, but, hey, I soon got over it when the dashingly handsome Chris Combemale beckoned me over to the after-lunch bash at the Greyhound pub with the lure of a cheeky, yet bright, zesty rosé. Good ol’ Chris, he sure knows how to treat a lady.
Next thing I knew I was in the company of the two remaining DM Spice Girls – Jenny Moseley and Rosemary Smith. Now, maybe it was just the warm weather, but Jen seemed in particularly fine fettle, and I am almost positive it had nothing to do with that bottle of Merlot she was clutching. Even Rachel Aldig…Rachel Aldagh…well, Rachel from the DMA gave me an air kiss, as did Lynn Stevens, Epsilon’s Maggie Shepheard, and the DM Professor, who was wearing a very smart cap. Unfortunely, PR to the stars Ed Owen couldn’t make it due to an egg and spoon race.
Still, Calamity Clive was there and Rogered Rog. Even old McKelvey made an appearance. It truly was a marvellous do.
But I had to tear myself away as I was on a promise at Adlib – and those guys at the Association of Drunken List Brokers never disappoint. Fit young men and dirty old fellas falling over themselves to buy me a drink…what more could a girl want?
Sadly Barry Leeson Girl was a no show, but I was soon being charmed by the handsomeness of Graham Bate. OK, he may have lost all his cash, but he has got a gorgeous new Eastern European wife.
Anyway, all was going well when suddenly a failed tennis player kicked off. Of course, Wimbledon fortnight is probably never a good time to be in the company of the man who blew it all.
Then again, it wouldn’t have been a proper DM bash without a punch-up. Luckily Rogered Rog stepped in to save me coming to any harm, although not before I took a fully loaded glass of pink in the face. But, ever the gent, Rog whipped out his top-pocket hanky to clean me up.
Alas, it was then time for me and my heels to stagger back to Victoria, content with fact that I had spread some love to the DM world. Rog even put me in a cab. You can keep your adland luvvies, give me a DM man with a bulging wallet any day…
