Default What's the most...

...random / stupid last minute thing you've done?

In my (relatively) short life it's got to be the Berlin World Cup final trip.

Four of us, 17-18 (I was 18...feel old?) were at the pub in a bigger group and decided to drive to Berlin.

Literally 3 or 4 day's later we were on our way to Dover, ferry booked with no idea of where we were going, my directions were; Land a Dunkirk, swing a left, past Antwerp(ish) and straight to Berlin...

It was the best 5 days I can remember. The car broke down in the Dussedorf area, we got very very lost, we had no 4th gear for about 150 miles, i slept in a tent in a layby on the motorway and the car finally packed up after a day's traffic jam in a place called Braunshweig (sp). We luckily ended up in a hotel where the generous, kind and sympathetic German family owners took us to get the car fixed, I had to borrow 300 quid off my Dad to pay for my mates new gear box for the privilege...

The family rented a car for us to get to the final the next day and that day will be one I'll always remember. Some of the most fun I've ever had in a crowd of a million people on the 'fan mile' and the drunked 2hr drive home (one lad didn't drink, so he drove).

We then bolted back to Dunkirk and just made our ferry. None of us had more than 50 quid for the trip and we lived solely on pringles.


Most of you have a bit more 'life' experience than me, so what's the most stupid shit you've done?

Being mauled by a bull on my stag in Cascais - they're bloody quick and this one picked on the Englander instead of the Portugeezers. Ended up with a bruise that covered the whole of my inner thigh but crown jewels intact (just).

Default Re: What's the most...

Woke up from a party, on a living room floor, thought bugger this, drove to LHR bought a ticket to Dublin and surprised my sort of boyfriend. Had no money, had a blast, missed flight home and when i got home didn't have enough money to pay the parking so my bezzie had to leave work, get train to me, pay for my car and then give me a place to hide until the party enhancers had worn off. Hmm I might have been a feckless youth.

*this was many, many years ago and i would never drive with even a glass of alcohol in my system now and wouldn't recognise an enhancer in the unlikely event that one would cross my path again..

Christ, you lot are actually interesting people.

I'm trying to think through my dull accountant life. I think I took the metro in the wrong direction once by accident.

party enhancers - heh in 12 years of working in dance music I've never heard such things called that... I like that.

Not going there with *those* stories, that's for sure....

We used to award 'spono' points out of 10 for these types of things. Patsy, i reckon you earned 9 (out of 10) with that.
