Been raining here for a number of weeks now. No matter what, I go outside for my lunch break at work, holding onto an umbrella with one hand and a sandwich in the other. Standing under a tree. Otherwise I’m inside all day. Love the wind and winter weather.

Not your typical Monday afternoon.

Complained Friday about secret Paul gig only being available to those who could make a video saying why they should be there, woke up this morning to an e-invite to Abbey Road this afternoon.

Along with Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Kylie Minogue, and most McCartney children, watched Paul performing in Studio Two.

Still in shock!

Feckin' hell! Still have big feckin' grin on face. Not sure it will leave for a month or two.

I'll write more when I've had a chance to process properly. Still jaw-dropped at my Monday afternoon.

I'm sorry, just confirming I understood the words that jumped off my screen...

Did you just say you were one of the incredibly lucky people to be at Paul's secret gig at Abbey Road ? That is so, absolutely, incredibly, magnificently amazing!!!beatlemaniacs_02_gifbeatlemaniacs_02_gif

^ I was very different. I did horribly during the driving part of my exam, but the guy could see that I only wanted my license to have a picture ID to take the university entrance exam so he let me get my license. I eventually learned to drive. Now, I love driving.

Haven't posted on this thread for a while, but other than going to the record store to buy The Beach Boys In Concert album, I haven't really gone anywhere worth posting about these past few weeks. I dreaded leaving the house during the World Cup because I hate football and knew I'd have to endure at least one person singing that stupid "football's coming home" song out loud, so I'm glad that finished. 

However, I have been excited about the prospect of doing the music course, meeting new people and hopefully making friends when I go to college in September. ahdn_ringo_09

What would be in the music course you're thinking about @SgtPeppersBulldog? Performance? History? Something else really cool?

Hope this isn't too complicated of an explanation, Holey, but here goes:
Well on the open evening they did back in March (I think), they showed us that we'd be using computers, midi keyboards and Reason for some things, but there is also a practice/performance room across the hall. We had to perform for one of the teachers in there to show we were eligible for the performance part of the course , so I did House of The Rising Sun on their electric guitar, which was already my chosen piece for my secondary school mock exams I was doing at the time. 
Something I would like to do is their enrichment clubs where you can join a band or stay behind after lessons to practice. Heck, maybe I could record some stuff there to send to you and Martha for our project if I did that!
I'd also definitely like to introduce some people there to this forum too.ahdn_george_08

Where I stay there is currently the most insane thunder and lightning going on outside. Easily up there with the most intense I've experienced.

Same here. Back for a tragic funeral, but it is nice to be home. I’m going to a Braves game with my dad. Its been years since i’ve done that. 

I’m trying to catch up on the forum but its near impossible with 100+ unread posts. In a week or two i’ll be through with my sunmer job and i’ll clear my unread posts and start posting again. 

I’ve missed yall!
