If I were ever to vote someone into space it would be myself.

Little cat is under the duvet by my feet chasing her tail. Also, more pointless information - today I learnt how to say "I like hot chocolate with Baileys, squirty cream and marshmellows" in BSL and one of the girls had asked our tutor how to sign space cakes :lol:

^ Awesome! Haha.

I want the Farnsworth house.

Feryja - Pretty much. The worst they could do is set up a direct debit, and you could see that through online banking. You give these details out any time you pay someone with a cheque anyway.

I'd be very cautious about it...this might give you pause for thought.....http://reportscammer.org/discussion/7/banking-and-online-account-scams

I honestly cannot see why people moan about what bands get announced for BOA, and say theyre not coming coz so and so is playing

I pretty much stopped listening to metal 2 years ago, and still come every year coz its £100 for the time of my life. I Love BOA

It's pretty funny that you call people idiots in the same post that you completely miss his point.

Well I read it as 'I don't understand why people moan about bands, but I don't like metal anyway so that doesn't matter to me. I like spending loads of money to sit in a field with my mates and have a good time. I go to a festival buying just a ticket to get in and don't pay to travel from Essex, buy food, buy drink and pay for anything else.'

If that's not what the poster was saying, then what was he saying?

"The atmosphere at Bloodstock is awesome, I wish that people would take this into consideration before spamming BOA's Facebook wall about what bands they think are shit"

I really don't understand cats. This one's purring while I stroke it and if I stop it puts its head under my hand asking for more attention, yet when I'm stroking it it keeps biting my fingers. Not in an aggressive way, but like it's trying to eat them...it doesn't hurt though. Maybe I just have really tasty fingers.

Dr Marten's have started doing boots for the services industry, and at decent prices too!

I was going to put this in the 'lol' thread... but it mildly terrified me more than anything!

The train I'm getting to Bristol is the same one I'd get to Wales when I lived there. I had this really odd sensation of going home until I remembered I don't live there anymore. I do miss Wales, apart from the handful of shit things that happened it was actually a really nice place.
