Re: the marks and sparks advert music...

It's funny looking back, but I was on a drip for 3 days in hospital, I thought I was going to die!

At least it allowed me to play Xbox non-stop for 3 months without feeling guilty (I couldn't even sit comfortably with a guitar) I was on a diet of "Smash" instant mash potato too. And guess what my first 'normal' meal was? A rogan josh from the local Indian....

EEEYOOOOUCH!!!!!

M n S do the best choc and strawberry milk ever.

Back on topic, just watched a spoof on google vids and it said it was 'Albatross' by Fleetwood Mac as the background music. Hell if I know if it is though, I don't listen to Fleetwood Mac!

P.S. Ibanez249, I feel your pain, I just got back from Tunisia, and my stomache feels raw.

Talk about a burning ring of fire...

Re: the marks and sparks advert music...

I've heard those bastards re-label the dates on sandwiches that don't sell, which is what could've happened to me. At the time I didn't have a clue about prawns, now I can't even look at them without thinking puke/Xbox/Smash *urgh* The good thing is it helped the ol' immune system and it's made me ultra cautious when cooking.

Mylo, get some Smash instant-mash and a box of Imodium... and some Xbox games

Re: the marks and sparks advert music...

Another thing, all the nurses in the hospital kept calling me Elvis (partially because of my boyish good looks ) and because when I went to the toilet I carried the drip like a microphone stand instead of wheeling it (it had a squeaky wheel, typical eh?) The reason being, some poor guy in the bed next to me had broken almost every bone in his body and had to be supremely drugged up to sleep and I didn't want to wake the poor guy. It led to the saying "Elvis has left the bathroom"

Strangely enough they didn't! It was prawn mayo so it was disguised slightly.

What a strange thread
