I spent the whole morning playing Pacman on my computer. I made seven cups of tea, ate four Jacob's crackers with Philadelphia cheese and I rearranged my desk. What a depressing start to a day....
I decided to take a wander down to Admin to see if Bimbo was as bored as I was. I found her sitting at her desk intently looking at her computer screen. She jumped when she spotted me.
"I can't find it!" she groaned
"The article on the Oxford University Orgy Parties!"
Maybe I'd better explain.
A new part time employee joined the company on Monday. He's a student at a local university and he's earning his extra cash by sorting out the incoming and outgoing mail. He seems like a very quiet, aloof person. Almost gothic with his attitude to social interaction...
Bimbo, being a sensitive person, felt sorry for him so she invited him to have lunch with us yesterday. Hoping to bring Weirdo out of his shell I began a conversation about university, something that he could relate to. I did not expect the following:
"Did you go to Oxford?" (At this point I thought; Do I come across that posh?!)
"No, Oxford isn't really my scene. I stayed in London."
"Damn! I'm dying to find someone who went there."
"Because of their elite drug and orgy parties"
Bimbo choked on a mouthful of chicken salad. I struggled so hard not to laugh out loud. Who in their right mind would say something like that to complete strangers? I thought he'd realise what he'd said and stop there, but no... he carried on!
Apparently, Oxford University have a elite group of people. Once a year this group meet for a "session". They meet at a barn in a rural field. The barn has blacked out windows and is fully equipped with showers, toilets etc. Before the group are allowed in the barn they must produce medical results for STI tests and they are searched for any cameras or other recording devices, including mobile phones. They basically spend the night taking drugs and "doing everyone" as Weirdo put it.
"Man, I'd love to be there! Can you imagine? Buzzing on pills and just doing everyone!"
I glanced at Bimbo. She was red and in total shock. The silence dragged on so I thought I should say something.
"So, how do you know this?"
"I read it in an article. The guy was actually there!"
I guess Bimbo decided to find the article herself this morning. She'd used every search engine and checked out every online newspaper. She looked extremely frustrated when I found her. I asked her why she was so upset. Tears welled up in her big blue eyes. She couldn't sleep last night. She kept thinking about England's politicians, top lawyers etc doing that kind of thing at university.
I calmed her down and said that Weirdo was probably making it up, or he was misinformed.
I wouldn't be surprised if it was true...
