I worked this out. An Iron Maiden concert is better than c85% of sex1. Read more... )

True to form, I've left my mobile at home on charge. However, I *will* be leaving the office by 1.30 at the latest, bussing home & changing (subtle corporate goth = acceptable; subtle corporate headbanger = less so) then charging over to SB Towers as planned.

I think I'll be happiest with driving to Meadowhall & park'n'riding into the centre - I know the way to the shopping centre (at least from the M1). Unless that's a problem?

I'm going to see Iron Maiden (baby) :)

I'm blaming the bloke who sits behind me, rather than She Who Must Be Obeyed (aka the even Supremer Overlord, aka Hoo). I just hope it's over (mostly) by IRON MAIDEN (baby) DAY. I need my voice if I'm going to singalongaBruce.

No joke today. Band Aid released "Do They Know It's Christmas" in 1984.

(The same year Iron Maiden (baby) released Powerslave, a far superior piece of work. 10 days to go!)

Iron Maiden's new album came out last Monday. I was (a) feeling skint, ater running out of money before running out of month in August, and (b) thought I'd save it for a post-insanity treat when work calmed down.

Sainsbury's and Tesco's have both sold out, despite it being no. 11ish in their charts and haivng deliveries every bloody day.

Dammit, I need classic Epic Tight Pants twiddly gallopy metal.

(This is why I replaced my long-missing copy of Appetite for Destruction instead. It was only £6 and is being played Very Loudly.)

It still amuses me that I've called this icon "Ballroom dancing". I need to get out more, don't I?

The tickets have arrived!

*runs round in circles doing the "shoot that fokker" dance*


ION, I Win At Life. And almost-forgotten wine-tasting extravaganzas. I might have to change my name to Wez, with all the Winning I've been doing. Except that would be Scary. Also, wine + pseudoephedrine hydrochloride = very strange head spaces and almost hallucinogenic Wayne's World-style wibbly effects.

But, Did You Know that Chilean wine has a different root stock from that found anywhere else in the world, cos the wine Plague couldn't cross the mountains?

I did. Which is Why We Won.


So. I got my photoprinted in Kerrang! when I was 16, and my name (and a disengage-rational-mind, unedited hindbrain rant) printed in Top Gear when I'm 32. Not counting being in The Times when passed my exams, cos everyone gets that. Where shall I aim for next?


And now I can't breathe again. I'm off to steam clean my sinuses.

Now I have All The Sugar In The World buzzing round my bloodstream (apart from that in [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke's stash, obviously), and a metric buttload of caffeine to boot, I'm slightly more human & less despondent.

And I've just booked tickets to see IRON MAIDEN, BABY in Sheffield in December, with [livejournal.com profile] snapesbabe and [livejournal.com profile] strangefrontier.

I've been a Maiden fan for more than half my life; I bought Seventh Son in 1988, when I was 14. I saw them at the Hammersmith Odeon (when it still was the Hammy O) on the 1990 No Prayer... tour of small venues, at Donington (when it was still Monsters of Rock) in 1992, and Donington again (as Download) in 2003. Not to mention Seeing Bruce Dickinson on his solo Tattooed Millionaire tour in 1990 at the London Astoria :)

I still want to be Bruce when I grow up :)
