come on, you know how it works, if it's cold out you have to make it warmer than your comfortable with, and if it's hot out (no matter how long you've moaned about it not being hot) you have to make it cold as soon as possible.
It's the British way. If we were content what would we moan about?

So angry. Since I let Gary use my Ebay account at the end of last year to sell stuff he got me a negative feedback which has now brought my percentage down to 98.1 which is fucking ridiculous seeing as it was only ONE negative. But whatever. Means that just now when I went to bid on a BOA ticket in the last few seconds I was told I wasn't allowed because the seller had restricted only full feedbacks to bid.

I am actually fucking livid.

I got followed by some guys in a car whilst I was cycling into town yesterday. They were crawling alongside me shouting and singing things at me for about 5-10 minutes. They wern't bad things, quite the opposite, but I wasn't really up for attention whilst cycling on a fold up bike wearing a hi-vis :|

Woah, I didn't know people could do that :?
Dont worry though, you'll get a ticket :) probably find someone selling one for cheaper on this forum!

Also, if you type in 'bloodstock ticket' to the facebook search bar and then click 'public posts' you'll see a load of folks who've made public posts selling their tickets :)

My mission to find some wellies for BOA failed miserably.

God damn horse rider's calves. Us folks with pronounced calf muscles need footwear too, y'know :lol:

Aren't the normal green wellies you can get from Countrywide and such really loose around the leg anyway? I guess it might be different if you have tiny feet though.

I find that wellies in fashion shops are cut narrower. Which is silly, plus it gives you blisters. I think the standard ones are cheaper and more hard-wearing anyway.

My feet are still scarred from wellies at Download. But the weather PROBABLY won't be as bad at BOA so I'll be bringing a spare of runners this time :lol:
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Clutch, Kamelot and The Ocean for BOA 2014 pls!
