make my wish come truuuuuuuuue, yeah all I want for xmas is yoooooooooou baby|
I am loving the Mariah Carey xmas song at the moment. It is my favourite xmas song I do believe. That and that one that the Spice Girls covered that I don't know who it's by. And 2 Become 1 and Mad World always make me feel all warm and xmassy even though they aren't xmas songs but yer nar...
Sorry haven't been around much at the minute - have been skint and miserable, work is hectic and I've just wanted to hibernate in a hollow tree trunk in a bed of moss and leaves with a nice pile of nuts. Mmmm nuts.
Germany was bloody brilliant. I had the best time, apart from the first night when they cocked up our hostel booking when we arrived - they'd given the room to someone else by mistake and ended up having to put us up in rooms with other people as there were none spare due it being a huge football match that night and everywhere was solid booked. I ended up in a room with about 7 german lads, and Nic and Kate shared with some random Austrians.Hahah. We had a little scout round the winter market in Edinburgh, which was just gorgeous and me and Nic were like "balls to Germany - lets stay here!". Had some gluhwein with amaretto (speaking of which, must go to the Sunderland one tomorrow and have some) and bratkartoffeln (i think?) which was scummy bacon and potatoes with garlic sauce and a sliced gherkin. Most people seemed to be scared of the sauce and the pickle so the jolly Australian dude who worked on the stall was absolutely ecstatic when me and Nic said yes to them. Fo serious. Ecstatic. Kate was like "Gawd, I wish I could get that excited about people wanting to eat pickles".
The flight over was nee bother, but pesky easyjet and their microscopic leg room meant my gammy knee was knacking :( Nic and Kate bought some delicious rose and violet flavoured vodka at the airport anarl (called "Pinky" hehe). After all the hoo har with the hostel we set up camp in the bar/restaurant next door which was a really posh chinese type place but we just sat at the bar and ordered cocktails. The zombies were sehr viel gut and the lads behind the bar were really sweet. Had a bit wander up the road once they chucked us out at closing time and ended up in this place called "Bar Rock" which was not rock in the slightest and full of all the football types who had been out all day so that atmosphere was a bit dodge so we only stayed for one. They had a nice xmas tree outside though, and Nicola stole a bauble. There are also lots of winged rhinos on street corners in Dortmund. Got funny looks outside the pub when Nic was trying to take a photo of me and Kate pretending to suck the one of the rhino's horns. Walked back via the garage for tabs and beer and pom bears and sat in the common room playing babyfoot and laughing at Nicola and Kate having heated debates (those two are so funny, especially when drunk...they just go round and round in circles and don't actually care who's right or wrong, they just love having a good arguement :P) and finally crashed in our respective rooms. GOt some weird looks off the lads when i staggered in at about 4am and turned the light on and was all "er hi..sorry...i just need a bed...mind if i have this one?..no? thaanks!" and jumped in and turned the light off. They were nee bother anyway, as the hostel wife had ordered them to be gentlemanly, although one of them kept trying to steal my duvet.
Further updates tomorrw...I have an appointment with the Herbert, the Chippendale and some vodka.
Will probably see yous all at the cock the dave xmas belmfest.
