buy me a ticket for the London show?

pleeease?

i have no other way of doing it 'cept online. And I have no way to pay online.




YOu would not be the first to do so (an online bud did the same thing for a gig way down south).

I could give you money either in post or on the day of the show.

by "toppins" i guess you mean "tu'pence"... which is a phrase that went out when we changed the system in 70something. I think it means exactly that: two pence.

You just charged me 10 dollars for your service. Well if it gets me a ticket... Laughing




Seriously guys, I've started day-dreaming about this.

I've decided what I'm going to wear on me bottom half. no idea about tee or whatever, 'cause i can't think of any of mine that'd go with the Malcolm tartan.

And i've worked out a very very basic itinery.

Fly down wed afternoon.
check in at accomodation.
go to gig.
potter about london for a couple of days or a morning (dependent on who's free- both LCers and mates)
Fly back.

i'm a genious. A genious without means of paying online.

i got toppins from mary poppins (sorry for the rhyme)
the little boy wants to give two toppins to the bird lady but the dad's boss says he should invest it.

i though he was saying toppins

Golly, Poster


I can do it for you, but... I have no money in my account at the moment... seriously, I'm broke. It might be a few weeks before I do and if someone hasn't got you one by then then I'll do it.

Though you don't have a debit card? Or your parents or friends card? I think you can even pay with visa electron on ticketweb.co.uk

I don't have a debit card.

My 'rents are away for two weeks...

It shouldn't sell out that quick. But if there are other people coming from all over, then i'd want to get it asap!

yeah, does anyone know the capacity of the fly? if it's tiny, obviously, i'd want to get my tickets soonish just to be sure.

i've been to the barfly in camden and that's pretty teeny...

The London Fly is really small. To be honest the last time I was there were about 70 people and it felt rammed.
