Hahaha, we have a few scary circles (or roundabouts as we southerners call them) in London, notably around Hyde Park Corner, but nothing quite as lunatic as the "Place de l'Etoile" which circles L'Arc de Triomphe in Paris, which I have also driven around on several occasions.

If the frogs see a British tag on the streets of Paris, they treat it as a target and considering our steering wheels are on the right of the car, the driving experience becomes even more exhilarating! Did you notice that EVERY car in Paris more than about a month old has dents?

I'm ashamed to say I've never been to The Globe, despite the fact that it's only a few miles from me. I've seen plenty of TV documentaries about it's construction and history and I really must make the effort. Perhaps I was subliminally traumatised by Shakespeare at high school!
Which play did you see there?

When people some to visit us, they always want to see the sites in D.C. As cool as the Air & Space museum is, if I never go again, it would not bother me and I can't tell you how many times I've walked the Vietnam Memorial and spent a few moments with Mr. Lincoln and walked around the White House to see if the sharpshooters are on the roof.

Point is, I never get to do the things I've never done. The line is always too long at the Washington Monument so I've never been inside.
Never been in the Capitol. Never been to the Jefferson Memorial (although I frequently park near it because the parking lot is central to all the things my visitors want to see).

Thank God, my father took us to the big museums when I was a kid or I'd have never seen the inside! My daughter wanted to see the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution but once again...the lines were too long and the time was too short.

If Ford's Theater wasn't around the corner from the Hard Rock, I'd have never seen that either.

I think I need some ME time.

^^^^^

No, but I learned to drive in a dog-shit brown Mk2 Cortina, my mum learned in a Mk1 and my ex-wife in a Mk3. Bring back the Cortina I say! Who wants to learn in a Ford Fuckus like my twins did?

For the culturally deprived (Hello Davey)- This is to what V V V refers:-

Billericay Dickie
: Ian Dury And The Blockheads
-----------------------------------------------
(spoken)
Good evening I'm from Essex
in case you couldn't tell
my given name is Dickie, I come from Billericay
and I'm doing very well
(sung)
Had a love affair with Nina
in the back of my Cortina
a seasoned up hyena could not have been more obscener
she took me to the cleaners
and other misdemeanours
but I got right up between her
rum and her Ribena

well, you ask Joyce and Vicki
if candy-floss is sticky
I'm not a blinking thicky
I'm Billericay Dickie
and i'm doing very well

I bought a lot of brandy
when I was courting Sandy
took eight to make her randy
and all I had was shandy
another thing with Sandy
what often came in handy
was passing her a 'Mandy'
she didn't half go bandy

so you ask Joyce and Vicki
if I ever took the mickey
I'm not a flipping thicky
I'm Billericay Dickie
and I'm doing very well

I'd a rondez-vous with Janet
quite near the Isle of Thanet
she looked more like a gannet
she wasn't half a prannet
her mother tried to ban it
her father helped me plan it
and when I captured Janet she bruised her pommegranet

so you ask Joyce and Vicki
if i ever shaped up tricky
I'm not a blooming thicky
I'm Billericay Dickie
and I'm doing very well

you should never hold a candle if you don't know where it's been
the jackpot is in the handle on a normal fruit machine

so you ask Joyce and Vicki
who's their brickie
I'm not a common thicky
I'm Billericay Dickie
and I'm doing very well

I know a lovely old toe-rag obliging and noblesse
kindly, charming shag from Shoeburyness

my given name is Dickie
I come from Billericay
I thought you'd never guess

so you ask Joyce and Vicki
a pair of squeaky chickies
I'm not a flaming thicky I'm Billericay Dickie
and I'm doing very well

oh golly, oh gosh come and lie on the couch
with a nice bit of posh from Burnham-on-Crouch

my given name is Dickie, I come from Billericay
and I ain't a slouch

so you ask Joyce and Vicki
about Billericay Dickie
I ain't an effin' thicky
you ask Joyce and Vicki
and I'm doing very well

----------------------------------
E&OE ( I couldn't be bothered to correct it)

You're right it was in Paris (roundabout) of course the L'Arc de Triomphe, I remember was close by. But yah, very lunaticish.
You haven't been to The Globe?! Well you should I'm trying to remember which play I saw, it was when I was a jr in highschool (9 yrs ago this year ) But I believe it was Hamlet though, although to me, Shakespeare plays tend to run together lol.
I always laughed at "Mind The Gap" lol
