I was going to leave the swirls out as I wouldn't know when to stop, or maybe I could do the swirls as any good tattooist could fade them out? I'm going to be wearing this for the rest of my life so I need it to be perfect. 

How about the sun rays from this year's design? If you give a copy of the poster to the tatooist they should be able to sketch out and agree a design with you.

What happened? I come back expecting tumbleweed to find the cream wars have started again.

Blame @H.M.V. Stirring trouble up...

Equal measures of vodka, amaretto and cherry brandy. It's very lethal

mmmmmmm currryyyyyyyy

my Boomtown diet needs to start now. So I can dance for ages without passing out! 

In other news, I'm watching The Jacksons on iplayer, were they good in real life? I was going to see them but had a panic attack that afternoon so ended up at the Foo's instead with lovely @Wellyboot. Foo's were good!

Didn't realise that Lucy, glad Welly was there with you!  Hope it didn't cause you too many problems :friends:

To be fair the blame lies firmly with @fatyeti24 and his heathen ways which were captured.

Squirty stuff should be illegal, wrong on so many levels. 

It's complete bullshit isn't it? Nothing worse than ordering a desert with 'cream', and it's that air+sugar filled crap.

Bloody hell, you lot! Where to start??

Cream before jam

Carribbean goat curry before any of the other options suggested

Cherry bakewell is indeed lovely, almost as lovely as @Curlygirl herself

@lucyginger, sorry to hear you had a bad time on Saturday, hope it didn't spoil it for you.

I've spent today gathering together bits and bobs for our next camping trip, down near Weymouth in a few weeks, and Beautiful Days, the week after. Not much to buy apart from food and drinks, thankfully! :)

Choir has stopped for the summer, but my bestie and I are continuing the going for a drink part of choir on Monday nights, because someone has to.  I am just back from the pub. 

Jam before cream;  butter not needed with all that dairy.

I like a goat curry but am really not fussed which curry as long as it's not a korma and isn't on my scone.

@Curlygirl's cherry bakewell is far more delicous than the tart of the same name.

@lucyginger sorry you were struggling on the Saturday. I'm lucky enough never to have had a panic attack but some of the crowd crushes this year were downright alarming.  How did your choir thingy go by the way?

Not the scone debacle again!

Scone. Then Jam. Then Cream. 

The thickness of the cream you dollop on top is directly proportional to the thickness of the scone itself. I like a percentage of around 60-70% of the thickness of the scone to be cream.

Here's a fun joke for you all...

What's the fastest dessert?

....you guessed it, SCONE!

I asked the maid in a gentle tone

To bring me a buttered scone 

The silly girl has only gone

And brought instead a buttered scone

Now if we're on with the food based puns:

What cheese do you use to get a bear out of a cave?

Cam on bear 

What did the cheese say when he looked in the mirror? 

Helloo me

Why did the mushroom have a party?

Because he's a fun guy

:D:D:D

Have a fab day

Thanks for the concern, everyone, I was ok! Welly and I had gone to see Jezza, got stuck in the bottle neck but managed to see a screen and could hear him well enough. So that was all fine. Then, when he'd finished, the crowd got a bit scary! We were trying to get out, and just shuffled along with everyone else, but there was a few lads not far from us that were being quite aggressive and shovey and then my breathing started to go...! I managed to keep on top of it, Welly was amazing and just held on to me, there was a couple by us and the man made sure we stayed together and gave me some water, the lady was lovely and made sure I was ok. We eventually got out of the bottleneck, people made sure we were ok, (I was, I had managed to keep my breathing on track but knew I might pop at any moment!) and we went and sat in the markety bit. 

A couple next to us asked if we were ok, and gave me some tequila, which definitely helped! After a few minutes we made our way back to camp, and I had a big old howl!!! We just stayed there for a while, in the safety of the tent. We spent the rest of the day together, as I didn't really think it was a good idea for me to go somewhere by myself, and she said she wasnt happy with that either so I went with her to The National and the Foo's and had a great time! 

Welly was amazing the whole time, she had never dealt with a panic attack before, but did everything just perfectly :)

It didn't spoil the afternoon, it was a bit inconvenient but we were ok!

Choir thing was good, thanks! A good warm up for the proper concert in a couple of weeks! 

Well done you for carrying on with going to the pub! very wise! :)

I actually changed my normal pronunciation of scone in order to make that joke work.

What do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you?

Nacho cheese!

Glad you survived Lucy!  Big kudos @Wellyboot for keeping her safe :)

I did find myself a bit uncomfortable with the crowds this year, but nothing like that.  We didn't even get that close to Foos, but the guys I was with were trying to meet up with some other people so they just kept on ploughing forward and I had to keep up! 

It's weird, I've got no issue with being shoulder to shoulder with people and packed in a bit tight (ooer), but it's when I then look over the top of the crowd a bit and realise just how far it is to be able to get out if I wanted to that I get the heebie jeebies a bit.

I've never really had an issue with crowds, as a short arse, I can't see if I'm in a massive crowd or just a small group!  Haha! I did get crushed in the crossover crowd from Morrissey to U2 in 2011, that wasn't very nice. Then  this year had the panic, but that's all. I'm usually ok! I think it just depends on how you are at the time and what's going on around you. 

I was so lucky to have my lovely friend to look after me, and we were very lucky to have the help of kind strangers :) Or, five minute friends, as we like to call them.

Fake cheese spreading cheese jokes again I see! Damn you Quark

Best cheese joke is still what kinda cheese would you use to hide a small horse?

Mascarpone... I'm so sorry.

The big question really though is the pronunciation of said circular flour based product.

Is it scone, as in scawn, or scone as in scown?

Favourite joke ever.... What's acoustic?  It's what Scottish farmers poke their cows with.

I'm here all week :hi:

It rhymes with gone, otherwise the joke wouldn't work.
