Re: Small or random things that annoy you

Really noisy eaters annoy me so much, as do slow walkers, bad grammar, and people who drop something and walk off without picking it back up (it's shocking how many people just walk away expecting someone else to pick it up instead).

Re: Disney Paris Trip Advice

Food wise, personally I'd leave the half board option. You can get Mickey-Pizza's in both parks (Pizzeria Bella Notte, Restaurant en Coulisse) and they are more than enough to share. Both parks have counter service restaurants, along with the more expensive table service. There's also McDonalds in t...

Re: Alton towers hotel should it be cheaper?

I voted 'too expensive' simply because I don't think you get what you pay for. 1) The rooms are dated IMO. I have paid far less for a boutique hotel and ended up with a much better room and en-suite than I ever have done in either hotel. 2) The entertainment on offer is not enough. The hotels are a ...

Re: Bees Nest Advice

Peter, you worry me. :P If I saw a bee struggling to fly I'd whack it, put it out its misery, of course. 8-[ :wink: If I had the bees nest in my garden I'd either(as suggested above) call a local bee keeper, or just kill them. A few dead bees isn't going to change the world. Without Bee's there wou...

Re: Alton Towers Marketing/PR Stunts Topic

I find this latest stunt to be the most untasteful yet! Has their room occupancy really got so bad that they've had to result to this nonsense? Even more bizarre, I don't understand the placement of the article. Yes, typically Sun readers are quite gullible (sorry, but they are), but they are also s...

Re: The Ultimate Fireworks: 5-7 November 2010

VIP viewing area... for fireworks? Am I reading this right? Fireworks go up in the air, surely looking up is the best viewing point? :lol:

Despite this, I'm looking forward to this event. :) I've missed the fireworks at Towers!

Re: Acute dentist-phobic need advice!

I had a very similar situation after my dentist decided to remove a tooth with no numbing of my mouth. Oh, my, gawd I cannot not describe the pain! After that I'd sit in the waiting room shaking and close to tears. Luckily, it was a one off, he got fired and I got a nice new dentist. Unfortunately t...

Re: Harry Potter Theme Park Announced!

Yay for it being open! :D Really not surprised about the queues, or it being closed due to capacity. During the previews there were a number of reports commenting on how busy the shops and area were, and that was with only 300 people allowed in, so I was expecting this sort of madness for opening an...

Re: Sleep Paralysis

I don't know how I forgot about this, but the worst sleep related problem I have is dreams where something really bad happens, like a close family member or friend dieing, and it feels so realistic that I wake up crying and physically shaken. It's horrible and really distressing. After dreams like t...

Re: Least amount of rides been on in 1 day?

Urm, none! :D I just went for food one day about a year or two ago. Benefits of a pass. :)

Hmm but in the case of it being really busy, I think I managed Duel and Nemesis one day two summers ago, before giving up and going back too the hotels for drinks. :)
