Re: Quick Questions 2012

Help! Going up to the Towers tomorrow and for the first time in ages, need to get a bus. I know the 14 goes past where I live, what are the chances of getting on it at 7.45 tomorrow? I can live with standing up, but I need to be on that bus as I'm meeting mates at the entrance who are getting a diff...

Re: Clothes people wear to walk round Alton Towers all day

Jeans, t-shirt and hoody, and my Converse (my favourite pair that saw me through Sonisphere 2010 and V Festival 2010). Going tomorrow and very tempted to try the combats idea but mine are black and it's going to be quite warm... I did dress as a nun for a friends' birthday - but I was sensible, wore...

Re: Current Offers, Vouchers, Deals ETC...

Yep. There have been 241's in the Sun all week I think. They're deceptive because the advert makes it look like each day's voucher is only valid for one attraction, but if you read the small print, you find they're valid for a big list of attractions :)

Re: Onride USB sticks?

Yeah, it is. Also I found a couple of times the pictures were never actually transferred onto my stick. And because there's no way of checking before you get home I couldn't do anything about it.

My only good Spinball picture never made it home :(

Re: Lift Stop

Not had any this year but have had one on Air for a camera. And about 259,000 on Air waiting for the train before to clear the block in front but that doesn't count. And 256,000,000 on the Skyride. But that doesn't count either. A trip on that when it DOESN'T stop is more of a surprise. *Figures hav...

A guy I work with, whom I like, also likes me :) We're now taking things slowly, really getting to know each other, and seeing where they go :) First relationship in nearly 4 years, so I'm nervous but very, very happy at the same time! Oh, and the ice hockey season starts this weekend! So I'll be ch...

Re: The 'I Feel Down' Topic

When someone you thought was your best friend, of 4 years, suddenly stops talking to you. Then you *think* you've got it sorted, arrange to meet. My plans change for reasons out of my control, I text said person to tell them. I'm back to being given the silent treatment. Everywhere, texts, facebook ...

Re: The "I feel happy" Topic

I've got a little bit of photography work lined up.

A portrait session and then a vow renewal ceremony for the same lady :) Lovely, a steop in the right direction and I can hopefully start building my business from here.

Re: Harness Popping

I've had restraints pop before, really doesn't bother me when they pop up, but when I get to the end of a ride and find I've inadvertently stapled myself in, that's a tad annoying! A funny story about Oblivion: On about my 3rd ever ride, I'd read on here about taking the belt out on the break run to...

Re: The "I feel happy" Topic

Got to go into a shop tomorrow for an interview :) Granted, it's a voluntary role in a charity shop, but it'll give me more experience for my CV.

Oh, and my friend and I are trying to work out where to go on holiday.

Re: The "I feel happy" Topic

I'm going to a steam railway this afternoon, another volunteering possibility :)

Quite looking forward to it as I've never seen a working steam train :)

OK, after popping down there, I'm going to help out with admin/marketing, and we're going to find uses for my photography and filming skills :)
