Got drunk, ended up here and now I'm stuck in a stressful cycle of being overpaid to do an easy job and managing to hide that from everyone. It goes round and round and the years tick by. Tell your kids to learn that skill, it's valuable as hell.

Went to a Welsh/Australian wedding a few years ago, the old boys got together (after many beers) and sang. It was absolutely glorious.
I actually really like Wales, went on holiday there in 2019, stayed on a vineyard don't you know! Visited the mint too, it was....mint.

No, that's the other thing. The camping trip.

He could recite absolutely anything and you would have to listen. Gorgeous. Something I've never noticed before, in some angles in your link as well as the other one, he bore a very strong resemblance to Elvis.

There's a whole LP's worth?

After you've done You'll Never Walk Alone, what else do you fill the space with? Shouts of "the ref's a wanker"?

Mr. Burton was very easy on the eyes. And that voice...

I actually really like Wales, went on holiday there in 2019, stayed on a vineyard don't you know! Visited the mint too, it was....mint.

If that isn't a recipe for heavy drinking I don't know what is, although the idea of Welsh wine is....different.

But the country is spectacularly beautiful. My English teacher at A level was from a small mining village in the Rhondda, and somehow managed to get himself a scholarship to Cambridge from there.
