So, 3 days ago I realised Metallica were playing a lot sooner than I though, the first night, I had a ticket for 'The Nutcracker' on Wednesday, so if you buy a ticket, you take the ride. Here's what happened on Thursday.
But first, rewind to Wednesday, lunch time, I dined with Mr Simon, I was just going in to Don Dons, he was cycling, before long we were eating.
It was all nonsense to me, so I wont bother trying to recall any of it, not here anyways. It's strange how people grow up and become adults, but there you go? Give time, everyone will do it, I guess?
Now, if there is on thing that makes me feel like I’m 16, all over again it's Metallica, and what’s better than seeing Metallica? Metallica + a half a litre of Vodka being processed by your system of course!
And then it came to me, so I put the plan into action, I first bought the vodka and went to Hungry Jacks, in went and sez I, 'A meal deal and a large Coke please', the chick told me I could only have a medium, I said no, make it a big coke, the manager stepped in to assist her navigate the order console and I got it my way, we were clear for blast off! Outer space here I come!!!
Anyways I got there, after a leisurely stroll by the Yarra, it's a bit romantic at night, city lights and all, bag search at the gates was non existent, I must have been pretty believable, who would go to the gym and bring alcohol to a gig? Who indeed?
I poured the water out of my gym water container, just to prove to the guys searching, I was 'Straight up' and there wasn't any 'tricks' and in went with a sweet concoction of Vodka and coke in a soft drink container, in my hand of course, it was even better inside when I bought beers and poured them in to the cup and went into the arena, you can bring soft drinks in, no alcohol, everyone else was stopped, I was on top of the world.
In fact the instructor at the gym was telling us to cycle harder and that after wards that feeling would be the best feeling we would have all night, obviously she wasn't going to Metallica, obviously?
Jamez said we'll be back in 6 weeks Melbourne; it's some travelling, to bring all that stage and equipment, to New Zealand, Japan and back. I liked travelling 'light', some job lugging all that stuff, only 42 sleeps left and I get to see it all again and again. I got myself 2 tickets. I cant wait!!!
