    i did suggest to him at first to take someone of the opposite sex,but alas he couldnt find anyone:smile:

    Mr Surf gave me his backstage ticket for a Radio One gig in Cardiff about ten years back. I got to oogle Robbie Williams and the Manics and he got a peaceful night at home. I followed the gig up by going to the Manics signing at Virgin and got home at 3am and woke him up as I was so excited at having met my idols.

    I hope you're not looking for reassurance that you've done the right thing.
    Because you haven't.
    ;) sorry!

    Gezza you....grrrr..jeepers if anyone needs a slap across the napper right now it's you.. The etape is in July. Giving up one weekend ages before is not going to ruin your preperation for the etape. You only get chances of a major freebie once, so take it!

  12. Robbie Fukcing Williams is one of your idols? Crikey:ohmy:. I would count attending a Robbie Fukcing Williams gig as a pretty big sacrifice. Or even hearing more than, ooh, two and a half seconds of one of "his" songs on the radio.;):tongue:

    In my defence I was a young thing of nineteen.
    There is no way I would go oogling nowadays. No. Not me. You won't catch me at it. No. Not now. Never. ;)

    You don't do it or you're careful not to get caught?
