The Singapore Grand Prix Tickets

I had picked up the tickets for me and Archie a few weeks ago. Just getting around to posting them up now that the race is only 2 weeks away. I picked up 3 sets and I was suprised that the tickets come in a display box. Pretty cool presentation. I'll probably keep the back of the box and frame it to hang in my garage as a momento.

This will be my first live F1 race so I'm pretty excited. The 3rd set of tickets is for my Canadian friend Bob.

Archie and I were emailing each other the day and I was saying how we should have some good stories from our Formula 1 weekend but they will all sound like it must be some kind of joke because it will be like, "An American, a Brit and a Canadian walk into a bar......."

I'll go up and tell the bartender, "Quick! Give me a shot of whiskey before the trouble starts!" and I'll slam it back.
Archie will go up and tell the bartender, "Quick! Give me a shot of whiskey before the trouble starts!" and he'll slam it back.
Bob will go up and tell the bartender, "Quick! Give me a shot of whiskey before the trouble starts too!" and he'll slam it back.
The bartender will say, "Umm, ok now who's going to pay?"
I'll turn to Archie and Bob and say, "Well boys, it looks like the trouble just started."

Guys, I need some advice here

I'm meeting Pete at Singapore airport in a couple of weeks, he's expecting a 6 foot tall 40 something Englishman to meet him. Although Pete and I have become good buddies through the forum, we have never actually met yet.

The truth is I've been stalking him on this forum for the last 3 years and I'm not really a man called Archie, in fact I'm a 14 year old chain smoking 200Lb single mum with an uncontrollable urge to swear.

When he meets me, do you think he will fancy me and want to marry me?

Great to see guys from the forum meet up. Hope you have really good "craic" as we like to say here. And of course Pete we look forward to hearing about the antics you both will get up to. Oh and photo's to if they're not to rude.

Yeah, I'm getting into S'pore the day before Archie so I told him I would meet him right there after he goes through customs. Since we have never actually met in person I wanted a sure fire way that we would recognize each other at the airport. Via email I made this suggestion:

In order to recognize each other you should be wearing a French Maid's uniform with a pair of Wellies, a Stovepipe hat and mirrored sunglasses. I will be wearing Speedos with a formal dinner jacket, the "Groucho Marx" glasses with the fake nose and moustache and carrying ballons (3 red, 2 yellow). To further verify that we are who we say we are and this is not just a coincedence I will speak the phrase, "Giraffes sleep standing up." To which you will reply, "A C-section is not required in this case."

Archie agreed this was a good idea.

Yeah, Singapore 2009 should be a real good laugh. I'm really looking forward to meeting up with the Capt. I booked my flight almost a year ago and it's been a very long wait, but I'm sure it will be worth it.

I'm not sure how Pete will manage to stay up for the night time race, as we all know Pete is a very conservative and sober person, he told me that he's normally tucked up in bed and sound asleep by 9.00 PM.

Hey Stile, you've got a date with me and Pete for 2010

Are you sure you can handle us?

Stile, I may well take you up on that offer. I'll see how I get on with Pete in Singapore first, as we may well end up killing each other

yeah, sure, first you check if Pete is not a serial killer or something like that, if it's safe then later we can think about the 2010 Brazilian GP hehehehe

That is pointless, he is a serial killer. Remember what he did to Barbie?

He said that he helped her with an assisted suicide, but we all know the truth.

It is only serial killing if I do it again.
