    Hi,

    Is anybody looking forward to the Pontins Band Festival this year? What are your test pieces like? The 4th Section test piece, FACETS OF GLASS, is all right (sounds like something from an horror movie.) lol. Its goin' to take some kicking ass to get it right though!!!

    I'll be damaging my liver in a bar somewhere and supposedly "supporting" Vernon Poynton!!
    Anyone just coming for a laugh?:tup

    Where did we find you?!?! Big brother is rubbish! I really wish we would practice it again, i've missed the rehersals that we've had it out! eeek, doesn't look too hard playing on my own, but all test pieces are like that! Oh dear...more practice is in order :)

    Yay ridiculously expenisve beer! You have to fight your way past big, fat bass players too, we're all too tone deaf to bother with listenin to the otha bands!

    its not tone deafness, its the fact we want to get drunk, to either celebrate or to drown the sorrows of losing, and generally have a great time!:p bring on the waterd down booze!

    All these rumours flying around? I hope you will be buying me a drink at Pontins to test the theory Andy! Every year the quality (or lack of quality) of pontins beer is discussed! I shall be visting costco before the weekend I think! Hopefully this year I shall get to sample of my lovely home made curry before it is eaten by the beer fairies!!

    Leisa, we could put up a tMP poster in our chalet again and see how many tmpers are brave enough to come in for a drink (leisa is very scary you know!)
