Good effort.



Fraser ’blue eyes’ Sharp tells us he came home drunk after the Waitrose

magazine party the night before and no sooner had he stepped into the

hallway than he was attacked. Sharp bravely wrestled his assailant to

the ground before realising it was a clothes horse. ’It lunged at me,’

he insists.



Pint in fist, BJK&E managing director Mark Patterson counsels Jonah

Bloom on his upcoming London Marathon attempt. ’I did it and it was

horrible,’ he says supportingly. ’I peed myself at the end.’



10pm PJ’s Bar and Grill When Patterson, James Jennings and Tim Irwin

start speaking Franglais loudly, we decide its time to soak up that

alcohol with a bit of nosh. The party staggers two doors down to PJ’s.

Yet more booze. The appropriately named Katy Driver, who works on the

Mercedes trucks account, is defending her sector. ’People think trucks

are boring,’ she says. ’But I love them.’



1am Only a small crew, including Bloom, Tara Marus and Jennings

remain.



They’re talking rubbish so it’s time to go home.
