Well I'll do the first report shall I.

4th February 2006 - TTF Gets Kinda Cosy

Members:
Ben, Ray (stokywolf), Sammie, Ant, Craig (gashead), Kaycee, Vik(nightsin2dreams), Sarah (saz sarcasm), Dave (d_stone), Ade, Ade 2, Lewis, Matt (towerstart)

Rides Went On:
Spinball x 6
Corkscrew x 3
Ug Swingers x 1
Nutty Squirrel x 2
Hex x 1
Ice Show x 1

Report:
I arrived on park about 9.30ish, met Dave and then Vik and Matt at the entrance - we headed into towers street where Matt ran away with some pretty young blonde (she thought she had pulled). Criag, K-Dawwwg and Raymo arrived next and we sat chatting near the frogs while Sarah turned up with 3 men: ade, ade2 and lil Lewis. after we got bored of waiting for those scousers who were probably busy stealing peoples cars etc, we went for a ride on spinball and then they arrived.

We had a few repeat rides on Spinball then headed to Hex, after that we went into UG Land and looked at poor Rita, who had all her seats off the cars. We went to Corkscrew but it was too cold so some men were warming her the old gal up while we went on UG Swinger, which lasted for aaaages. After that we had some chips (no chicken, its winter) which were very dry lol. Corkscrew had re-opened so we had a few rides with the padded seats and restraints! Ooooh!

As we headed back towards Spinball, me being the TTF Pimp took my TTF B!tches (sammie and kaycee) for a quickie in the ungated gardens, however my plot was foiled by a family following us. We couldnt find our way out of the gardens and ended up in Forbidden Valley (which really was forbidden) and it was horrible in silence and with nothing moving. We headed back past a closed duel, dirty Katanga with an empty lake and finally passed the closed tavern (pah!) where there was a training event.

Had another ride on Spinball where Ade1 had a very interesting conversation.

Met the others, me and my b!tches pimped it up on a squirrel, woop! Went to see the magic of the ice show which was like being on smack as it made no sense what-so-ever, especially the top thrill dragster in reverse, and all the faffs I could see and the fat bird at the back.

It was closing time so we drove to Splash Landings and had a couple of drinks in the bar, then a wander around the hotels - I love the atmosphere in SL but the gardens in ATH are amazing, I had a fight with ray on the stepping stones and proposed to Sammie on the band stand (a pretty normal day). Nipped back to SL had one last drink with the others as they departed, and then I left about 15mins after.

It has been a wonderful day, so worth the travelling! As usual everyone was a pleasure to spend time with and I cant remember the last time I laughed so much. It was just what I needed.


Other Bits to Mention:
Love my b!tches
Sammie LOVES it
Criag reversing into a rock
Rah Rah Rah Im a model (still)


Pics will be online shortly care of Ray and hopefully Matt - as I didnt take a camera (im too lazy).

Well I arrived at around 9.45, on entering the coach park, I seen all of 2 cars, and stood by one of them, which turned out to be Bens car, was none other than Dstone, cant miss him in that fleece :D . So it was a case of putting my footdown and whizzing accross the coach park heading straight at David. Thankfully (for him), I braked at the right time. :lol:

Entered in to Towers street waiting for 10.30 opening, with Dstone, Ben & Towers Art, Craif, Kc, and Craig arrived shortly after, then Sarah, Ade, and Ade2.

Went to spinball, which decided to break down, only briefly, but on restarting, one of the cars only just made it on the the final brake section. :shock: . For a brief moment, it looked like it could of rolled back.

After a few goes on Spinball, headed towards Ugland, and stopped of at Hex on the way. The woman sitting next to me seemed rather convinced that it did really go upside down. I past her on the way out and heard her husband/boyfriend, or whatever he was trying to explain to her that wasnt quite the case.

In to Ugland, to find Corky had just closed. it was a bit cold, needed warming up a touch. ad a go on Ug Swinger, then some rather average chips, few goes of Corky before heading back off towards spinball.

Plenty more goes on this, and some went on Squirrel Nutty, but I gave it a miss, as it is a bit to intense for me :roll:

Couple more goes on spinball, then to the ice show, which was not as good as I expected.

After this made our way to the exit, and decided against going up to the Hotel. rather bad mistake, spent ages stuck in traffic in Stoke due to a couple of nasty accidents.

Good day, if rather on the nippy side, I was freezing all day.

Didnt get any photos, did some filming, though not much. Do have david humming to the towers street music in the background on one bit of footage.

Roll on March 19th

Due to my absence in the morning I didn't meet the guys till later on (you saw me leave with the pretty blonde eh? lol). However it was nice to meet you all. The park was empty due to the large amount of people taking up the hotel with a Conferance meeting.

Heres a few pictures from when we went down to the hotel, behave! :P

Slightly excited about entering a lift. . . :-?

I must admit, I didnt notice the pads, but I didnt get the ear bashing I usually get from riding it, so they make a difference, even when you dont know they are there :? .

Stiff neck says no!! Lmfao, never again.

So, I arrived at Uttoxeter at 9:50 to wait for my lift (which I eventually sorted, Ade, you twirp). The three mouseketeers (Ade B, Ade C and Lil'Lewis) whisked me off to McDonalds where I sat and talked to Lewis and discovered he's a hell of a lot nicer than his dad, Ade C!

Arrived just after half ten where the 'cru' :lol: stood chattering on Towers Street:
Kaycee, Craig, Ade B, Ade C, Lewis, Ben, Me, Locker, SlickMick, 'nurdette', Stoky, Vic and David.

We got bored of waiting for Sammie and Ant (cos we ent bovvered innit) so decided a trip to Whizzball was in order. In true Alton style, it died as we arrived with cars stuck on brakes all over the shop. Had a few repeats on here when it finally got working before heading up to Hex with the now arrived scousers.
<Ride assistant to Ade>"Sir, can you please put away your phone?"
<Me to Ade>"Hahahaha, you got TOLD!"
Walked up to the Factory Du Chocolate to check on progress, but everything was covered in sheets to 'protect the painting' and keep out us nosey gits :P.
Hopped over to Corkie shortly afterwards where *dun dun duuunnnnnnnnn* it was dead. Managed to bag some chunky chips whilst in the vicinity, have a big natter with Ade, play mummy to Lewis on practically all accounts and ride le Ug-Swinger. Also had a nice jokey chat with the Corkie host where I got into how she needed a blanket to warm her up, as you feel the cold with old age etc. . . The conversation quickly turned (in true Sarah style) to swingers and Saga holidays! Had a torturous ride on the old gal and vowed never again, though I always say that!

Then came the momentous time to meet Matt/towersart who is T3H S3X1!1!1!. . . or something. . . Had a really good chat with him after finally emerging from the ladies where Kaycee and Sammie had touched up (ooeerr!!) their make-up.

Walked back over to Whizzer where everyone attempted to get me to dance to Hung Up, but I was simply too busy talking to my friend on the telemaphone about her date for tonight :P. Things get blurry here, but I do remember chasing Stoky endlessly to try and get hold of his teddy bear

*Pulls really sad, innocent face* pwease Way. . . I onwy wanna hold the widdle fing :(.

Muahaha I have it now! Well actually, my dog does. . Pictures to follow :P.

The rest of the day was a blur of hysterical laughter, playing Lewis' mum, repeat rides, manager spotting and picture taking. Watched the Ice show thing and JESUS. If there was a visible rope to string that plot together I would have lost it! Quite where UV light-up fish fit in with Díck Wittington I have no idea!

Had two rides on Nut du Squirrel with Lewis where I told him I'd smack his backside if he was naughty, to which he replied "Well I'll smack your arse!" How bloody rude!

Headed over to Splash where me and Ant shared a delicious ham and pineapple pizza from the restaurant, washed down with an Archers and lemonade *licks lips*.

With regards to me dribbling in the above picture. . . Craig did say I looked like something out of a porn video when I managed to spill that drink all over me lmfao ;). At least I didn't throw it all over the floor, though! Hahahahaha, gutted for Kaycee!

Was so great to see so many of you again, I had such a great time today! I didn't stop laughing the whole way through, and when I did, you all seemed to notice!
"Sazzly why are you quiet?"
"Uhh. . . I'm reading the paper?" :lol:

Really ace day :).
[Don't ask me for a ride count, I don't give a crap to be honest! Had such a fun day I could have done nothing and enjoyed it]

Me and Craig were so eager to go on Squirrel Nutty but that goddamn que was a bit big.

After Spinball was fixed we had a few rides before heading off to ugland.
Craig and Ant felt a bit blurry at this time.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v499/ ... ntmess.jpg

To celbrate the thought of going back to spinball, Ben and sammie did some strictly UgDancing.

Which led to some strictly SexDancing.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v499/ ... ancing.jpg

I did not throw my c0cktail across the room! :o I was saying goodbye to Ade, stepped back and knocked it over! :( As for the first one - Ade, you should know better than to get me whisky! *stomach lurches slightly* :D But thanks, I appreciate it - I owe you some! :D

Today was great one one one one one. :lol:

Funniest bit was Ant being a daredevil antelope and climbing over the barriers surrounding the test Rita seat. He couldn't even open the belt at first, but when he did and sat down and fastened himself in, he got stuck! And then as a member of staff saw and came over, we were all like 'shiiiiit' and ran away, leaving stuck in the seat surrounded by metal gates as he got helped out and reprimanded LMAO. Funneh. :P

Arrived about 1020 after ANOTHER 3 hour journey only a week after the last one! :P Saw Ben, Vik and Dave at the bottom and were quickly joined by the rest of the group, as has been detailed above. Did Spindawg 3 times, Hex, Corky twice - we saw Rita2005 on Corkscrew and the rest were being cheeky and making rather loud references to TTF before we left the station - shameful behaviour, you guys. :P

After we returned to the Spindawg - the attraction of the day (also after meeting Matty Moo aka towersart and Gareth aka Game On, who greeted me with telling me he's seen an video of me and 'you don't wanna know' which one it was! Hmm.:P ;)

Did the Squirrel Nutty and Spindawg again (joining Ade as he chatted with Rachael Lockitt at the exit) and went to see Panto on Ice, which wasn't much special, but quite good.

Afterwards, Ma Garritas it was - Craig demonstrated uncharacteristically bad driving skills as he reversed into a rock - that's the only scrape (he;s insisting that I clarify he did NOT scrape the car, he simply popped the back light out, which he popped back in. 8) )he's ever had, guys! Trust him to make it when you lot are all watching!

Great day, bring on the REAL TTF gets cosy next month hopefully!! :D
