Went to see a band called Thunder years ago...
except they were playing as "Danny and the Do-waps" or something, and doing covers of the Blues Brothers songs and similar stuff.

The lead singer shouted at one point "Any requests?" and I shouted "Gimme some Lovin'"

and he said "After the show mate"

» Crap meals out

Guilt Meal
The food was fine, the only bad thing was the plate was cast iron, and so hot I blistered my thumb when I tried to move it...

...But the worst thing was I was in Kenya and had spent the day going around Nairobii National Park, and then onto a Giraffe Sanctuary where we fed the orphaned ones from a big platform...

...that evening we all went to "The Carnivore" where you got the red-hot plate and a condiment set with a little flag on the top, they kept bringing you meat until you put the flag down... yes you guessed it, I ate giraffe... I felt so guilty...

» Crap meals out

I wish I had that.
Had been with a new girlfriend for a few months (she's my wife now, but I digress) and we went over to her best friends house, and was promised slap up meal, woo hoo! I think, and basically starve myself all day.

So we get to her friends house and her boyfriend has cooked but refuses to tell us what it is, so we have the starter and a few drinks, then he brings out this whole squid, stuffed with rice, one for each of us, it's got the tentacles and the beak and everything still on it. Now I'll eat fish, but any other seafood is out, *barf*

So, as not to upset anyone I eat it, with PLENTY of wine to wash it down, come 10:30 I'm smashed and me an another guy who were invited are having beak eating competitions!

In the cab on the way home she turns to me and says "I didn't think you liked seafood" I replied in a very sorry voice "I f**king hate squid!"

I made the cabbie stop for a bucket of chicken on the way home, just to get rid of the taste...

As an after note, my wife then girlfriend was veggie, she had stuffed peppers, it is the only time in my life I have looked at a vegetarian meal and thought "I wish I had that"

Summer of '69
reminds me of watching Bryan Adams live at Mlton Keynes Bowl, he played the first chord, then we all sang it for him, as he stood there and waited.

When we'd finished he told us to be quiet while HE sang it.

Excellent moment.

*glad to be the first one to mention '69*

Stairway to hell
Leaving stuff on the stairs, it's dangerous, if you can't see where your feet go you might slip and fall - or even worse, slip and drop your 4 month old son* and go tumbling down the stairs as he flies through the air - which is what I did even after repeatedly pleading with my ex not to leave things on it, she left a magazine on the stairs.


*I caught him :)
