I try not to venture into town as every crank still thinks that Peter Crouch plays for Liverpool so I get the obligatory "can I have a photograph?" which pisses me off a little. Could be worse though. Was at Creamfields with me sister yesterday and some girl said to me "Wow, you're really tall. I'm 5'2. Can I have a photo with you?". Told her politely no chance but she kept on so I told her again and turned me back on her. A few seconds later our kid says "walk away, now". So I turn around and this girl's stood behind me pointing with a goofy facial expression on her face as her mate prepares to take a photograph. If she'd offered her phone number I might've considered posing for it. Some people.
Yeah but the quality is not all THAT great though.. :/
The only nice bit, I found, was the women's only gym ;P
Ahh I never did venture to the pool section, I must say.
It did amuse me the way they seem to have swimming lessons but only for obese women though.
It's the same in the womens D:
Not what I wanted to see on a Sunday morning
And it's only the really REALLY fat ones who wander round naked.
Good timez :|
The organisers said that they couldn't have been made as a permanent fixture with them being fibreglass but I went to Berlin a few years back and they've got something similar with statues of bears (Berlin - bears, yer gorrit yet?) and they're still standing. There was all sorts of designs ranging from ones celebrating the Berlin Zoo to the city's main football team. If they can do it then why can't we?
The original has become sort of synonamous with the city. At first people hated it and then they grew to like it. It's seen as a familiar fixture of the city like the Liver Buildings or the St John's Beacon.
Yeah but like, what's the point of them? Just cos you stick a few mutant lambs everywhere doesn't make a city a nicer place. They could have spent that money better.
