Yeah. After QAL at the O2 in 2008, the drinking went on until 3am and then Loretta bundled me into a taxi to King's Cross, so I could get the first train back to Cambridge. I arrived and remember drunkenly walking up and down the platform looking for my train, VERY confused that: 1) It looked very different, brighter and newer. Had it been renovated? Surely not, because I'd been there about 12 hours earlier; 2) All the trains were going to 'Bruxelles'.

Yeah, the taxi had dropped me off at the International Terminal.

I found the correct King's Cross, got on my train to Cambridge, woke up in King's Lynn.


Ha! :P That wasn't AL was it? It was the macho straight bloke wasn't it?


Good point. Some fuckwits told Loretta, you and me to shut up during the show! Pretty embarrassing for them, saying that to QOL royalty.

Every time I turned around, you or Loretta handed me one of those £15 plastic bottles of Stella!

...and we're back to Belgium.

It was a good night. I really enjoyed it. I think we had a 'lot' to drink in two hours though.

Where was the Printworks place? I remember seeing you there. Manchester I think. There was a bloke with a bag and I was convinced he was going to kill you. Didn't he offer you a lift home or something?

QAL? Adam Lambert must have been about fourteen. Are you sure?

Rock U. He was an ambassador for Liverpool as the 2008 capital of culture. The show was Manchester, yes. Was Didymus there? I think he was, but hadn't been to the show itself, having been to see The Mighty Boosh or I Am Kloot or Shaun Of The Dead that night.

That's him! He seemed like a nice enough sort of a guy. Dids was there, but never went to the show, you're right.

It reminds me of the risks I have taken for this band! I have so often been wandering around strange cities at night looking for my hotel. :P I got approached in Toronto by a dishevelled sort of a guy asking for money at around 02:00, I had no coins, so just gave him the lowest denomination note I had, $10. Then I got lost in Cologne, that was really scary, I admit it, it wasn't nice being lost, late at night in a strange place!

The one thing about the + shows and the musical, they did make me visit a lot of places! Curioulsy, not Belgium though. I have been once to Bruges I think it was on a day trip. Fantastic day, fabulous cathedral as I recall and I have to say, the beer was fantastic too!
