Shortly after we arrived, the dj started up. I say dj, but that is something of an overstatement. He clearly had a pre prepared list of songs set up on his computer, and really just sat there nodding along to the music. Now having grown up in the eighties, I am always quite happy to listen to a bit of that music, and that was just as well. It wasn't absolutely all from the eighties though, there was a little bit of seventies thrown in, together with a few spanish songs and a couple of terrible country songs from who knows when! But the really sad thing about the playlist was his complete lack of imagination in putting it together. He started at A and played a couple of songs by artists from each letter of the alphabet. Surely even if that is how he put it together he could at least have pressed the shuffle button! However this dire piece of dj-ing did in fact provide us with some unintended entertainment as we sat trying to guess which songs he would come up with for each letter. It didn't take a genius to work out that Queen would figure, but we were a bit disappointed at H when our guess of Human League didn't appear. We hadn't expected Joan Jet and the Blackhearts, but we were right with Limahl and some others.
The next day, with little to do here anyway, we took the chance of a sleep in and a lazy day. Having got a few practical tasks done, we met with our stalkers again for dinner and this time went to a nice little microbrewery. The challenge of a plate of megachips proved irresistable, and we did eventually work our way through most of the kilo of chips topped with cheese, breaded chicken pieces and bacon! We also established that we and our stalkers had solved the puzzle of the part bear part anteater thing, but I will reveal the answer to that in a later posting - bet you can't wait!
Early night tonight though as we all had early starts in the morning.
