so it's less than a week away, who's excited?
aren't i cool.
stupid job :'(
I am very VERY excited!
Are you getting the train?
i didn't want to spend all that money to stay the night, the lovely Barry_Scott is giving me a lift...
with a house....which is good
It is now a two day adventure!
There may still be tickets left. I bought a spare last week (which I've since given away)
havent got a ticket yet plz dont sell out
someone buy me one and i'll give you the money back.
but be warned, there may be train problems (for anyone getting a train)
You! Me! Dancing!
If you play your cards right
Monpot you do still have my ticket don't you?!
ONLY JOKING! I've got your ticket, my ticket, Moribund's ticket, and my mate Dave's ticket all tucked under my stereo in my bedroom.
Looking forward to coming back.
Don't know where I'm staying yet...
I need to leave on the first train I can into London!
Was planning on staying with my ex but he's in a strop now as he can't go to the gig!
it says sold out on the website
please does anyone have a spare ticket?
they've taken tickets off sale. HOWEVER the helpfull girl from The Point or Forecast or Plug2 or wherever she was from was just in the shop and she told me there'd be about a hundred tickets on the door.
Gosh I'm helpful. :-)
a fucking hero
After the gig I'm tjhinking Callaghans or Buffalo as they both open late. I'm also organising a morning-after-breakfasty thing for the next day at 10:30ish before everyone leaves for Ingerland, possibly in Cafe Europa. If anyone wants concrete details then PM me your mobiles and I'll be in touch!
breakfast in saffrons in canton.
yum, greasy heaven.
does anyone want to come to mine for breakfast? I'll cook. I have eggs
can you get me a ticket too?
when I went to buy a spare last week, which I've since given away. Drat. If you can get down there early on Tuesday you might get one on the door like Monpot says. I don't mind queueing on your behalf if you have to work or something
i have just booked the time off work so i'll try to get down in the day.
i might give the promoter a ring, see if i can work and do photos for the night.
or i know a couple of the bouncers down there. ;)
theres lots of options.
but thanks for the offer :)
In Roath/Studentville, off Albany Road. I have a yellow door.
You're on the other side of town, yes?
and i came up with it in collaboration with Scarecrow...Monpot is a glory hogger :(
Also: Where are we meeting before we go to the Point?
im spending the day exploring and meeting monpotamis for luncheon.
dont make me explain it!
that and i get to meet you come Tuesday. Are you coming to Los Campesinos Sept 16th? (My first night proper, when ive moved in)
in that pub in the bay that me and Sophie went to. It's either called The Ivor Davies or The Ely Jenkins -whichever one isn't the Wetherspoons in Canton. I think it's the Ely, it's about a 2 minute walk from the Point, and it's not bad in there.
I think I'll wear my white stripey polo shirt. It is clean after all.
Weren't you wearing that one in London?
Not that I'm stalking you...
I'm thinking of going with the classic shirt and jumper combo. I have a new 'cement' coloured jumper, possibly a black shirt beneath it.
is that a 'sounds like' thing? Or am I being gross?
i HAVE the COWSUIT
not to bring it ;-)
BREAKFAST: Somewhere in Town because people will be coming in from various directions, so it's all nice and central.
MORIBUND: Don't be alarmed, but I've got no idea where you're going to stay. I'm still back at my parents, I'm hopeing I can get a key to my brother's place because he has a few spare rooms we can make use of at the moment. James Broken Star is getting my friend Dave's sofa.
train ticket :(
brother's house should be fine. if not we can cuddle up with James on Dave's Sofa of Sin.
that I got a little excited just then? :|
and a wank.
That'll see you good.
But I think we'll be fine. Dave should be cool with us crashing over if need's be. Bund can take the other chair/foot rest combo and I'll sleep on Dave's floor.
I'm SO excited.
I think I plan to be in the Eli Jenkins in Cardiff Bay by 6:30 at the latest. With me should be Moribund, HeartbrokenStar, Nice_Squirell, Hannah82, and Honorary Welsh Steph and some Real World Friends of mine.
Everyone else is of course welcome.
The Eli Jenkins is sort of round the corner from the Point, and is fairly easy to find. It even has 2 entrances for easier locating.
LOOK!!! This website has a map! And photos! Of both entrances!
Be there :-)
that question mark is going to confuse things innit? Copy and paste!
it didn't confuse things. Good Omen for tomorrow night :-)
It's gonna be ace.
Where do you fancy going after? We have 2 choices basically. Buffalo or Callaghans.
Buffalo is a bit expensive, but is open 'till 3 (Callaghans closes at 2), Buffalo will probably be playing slightly better music but there's less chance of getting a table as it's quite small. Actually the price difference isn't that much if you stick to lager (2.70 for Carling in Callaghans or 2.80 for Staropramen in Buffalo) but I think if you drift away from the taps then things start getting much more expensive.
WHERE'S THE CIDER?!
that's Oh So Fashionable Right Now in both places I guess, not sure on prices sorry, I'm not really a cider drinker unless it's that Pear stuff which is so ace it can even drag me into a Wetherspoons.
it's all cheap to us Lahhhndahnners anyway.
with all your booking/transaction fees.
that I don't remember Cardiff beer prices being THAT cheap comparative to London.
Of course, that might have been because I started on Kronie Blanc and don't remember much else in the later sections of the night.
There's not many places where you can buy 2 pints for less than a 5er. I think it's because Brains have a bit of a stranglehold on all the pubs round here so the prices are quite high.
FACT (please dont notice me)
and I'm not gonna start doing so now!
;-) JOKES, I'M NOT ACTUALLY A DICK
I've come to the conclusion that I don't actually make a first impression on anyone, as everyone I meet seems to not remember. I'd be the perfect spy.
I don't think I made a first, second, third, fourth, fifth and possibly sixth impression.
I've realised I didn't actually introduce myself at Reading though, sorry, that was when I was suffering my smoking hangover.
buy me drink
are on at 8 apparently. Though anyone who hasn't got a ticket should probably get there a bit earlier.
was trying to find out when they're on!
this will be ACE, provided i can get some post-reading sleep before tomorrow night...
why the sadface? are you not coming?
i cant come now - i sacrifice my ticket to sickboy on the altar of being a good dad......damn damn damn my working sperm.
i am now smiley face
there's liek 200 tickets on the door apparently.
less than a day now
woo, and indeed, hoo
i am this happyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
im happierrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr :D<----------------------DISTINCT LACK OF SADFACE
I am fighting off a Reading cold with the thought of dancing fun.
Blasted Train ones
i need a LOLbotomy
I'll just set off a little bit earlier
no trains between swindon and bristol, you have to get a bus.
I am setting off shortly, but I have just had an utterly crap £13 haircut that has pissed me off. I'll be the one with the shit hair.
Seriously (tangent alert), why can't hairdressers just do a 'normal' cut anymore? Please stop leaving me with some trendy 2003 mullet, absolute wankers, I didn't even ask for it to be washed (though that was the highlight of the cut).
now im going to get mistaken for Moribund coz i too have shit hair today
to hide the shitness, is it sad that all I can think of is 'spiky'? That's a sentence with two words in inverted commas, am I turning into 'Prole'?
They played for a little over two hours. Plus, they did my favourite ' For the first time live in years' (looks just like the sun, in case yr intrested)
is tonight right?
The last two days they have been amazing, but I'm glad this is my last night seeing them as my legs are about to fold in on themselves.
I requested Almost Crimes.
I'm going to cry if they don't play it.
i heard it was cancelled
so it can't have been...
sorry i couldnt make it, i had to work later than i thought and by the time i wouldvegotten there it wouldve been too late.
hope everyone had fun tho...
it was shit.
