Three girlfriends ago . . .

When I met her she coloured her hair regularly and (this is kinda disgusting) had electrolysis to stop hairs growing on her chin (ewwww). After a while, she seemed to figure "Well, I've got a man." She stopped colouring her hair and went grey, stopped the electrolysis and sprouted hairs on her chin (only a couple, but, ewwww!) and her dress sense seemed to suggest that the only clothes shop she ever visited was Granny's Discount Emporium. I remember looking at her one day and thinking "I just don't fancy you anymore. What am I doing?" It didn't last much longer.

What's the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you while drinking?

God theres so many.

Walking across the pub not realising that my strapless top had fallen down and was round my waist, but not only that, but one of my boobs had popped over the top of the strapless bra. The same night I was also sick on a bus. My lovely friends always tell this to everyone we meet.

It was their fault, I'd split up wth someone and they were sneaking me double vodkas, I didn't know.

Same question to next person........I bet theres loads of stories between us!

One night, I was in such a state that I got out the taxi in the wrong street, so I had to walk for a bit. I decided to have a look at the new houses that had just been built in my street on the way home, so I was in the back garden of one peering in the window trying to get a look at the layout.

I woke up the next morning and remembered my little exploration. The thing is, there have been no new houses built in my street for over ten years. So I was in somebody's back garden, peering into one of their windows. It's just as well nobody woke up.

Pass the question . . .

Mexico - being talked into skinny dipping by a friend who had never done it before. We chose what we thought was a nice dark place, only to find out it was brightly lit by the flood lights outside the disco. Two security guards showed up, requesting we get out of the water. Everyone in the disco was now looking out the windows at us. We refused until they left - they refused to leave. Okay, so we got out - big deal. The embarrassment came the next morning when my friend decided to to tell my Dad (over breakfast without me there) what we had done before anyone else told him an exaggerated version. Loved coming down to breakfast just to have my father bait me about it all over scrambled eggs. (I was 33 - what was he going to do besides laugh...)

pass the question...

Drunk stories, too many and a lot i can't remember the enire bits.
One has gotta be when we were in Berlin.
Got absolutly hammered on a three day bender, and crashed in the bath at my sisters appartment.
She proceeded to paint me with kiddies face paint and pout toys all over me. Video it and take a few photos.
Woke up the next day hang over etc, but nothing too bad. Went home, about 4 days later a postcard arrived - the photo of me painted up !! with a note "the video is in the post"

Pass it on ....

I was on a college trip a few years ago in France and we were staying in this sort of log-cabin type resort just outside of Paris. One of the guys had thrown a party in his cabin (it was two to a cabin) and when I got to my own cabin after the lights were out and the door was locked. So I started pounding the doors and windows (guess where this is going) and one of the other guys who was with me joined in. So we're pounding away and shouting for my roommate to open up and let me in, when my roommate appeared from the next cabin over, and said "It's this one", or words to that effect.

I have visions of some terrified French family making a complaint to reception the next day.

What's the stupidest thing you've ever done to please your significant other?

Went out xmas pressy shopping after the pub, went into a jewelers shop , saw this nice watch and said i'd take it not looking at the price.
Threw down the credit card, signed and stuffed the reciept in my wallet.
I didn't look at it until I gave her the watch, and she said 'that looks expensive'. It then dawned on me that I didn't even know how much it cost, I just about fell over, it was about £500!!!.

What did I get? a card.

Same question ......

I ended up falling out with my family over a girl, then giving up my university place and moving to the States to be with her.

She dumped me a few months later.

Pass the question . . .

Don't think I've done anything quite THAT dramatic. One of the funny moments was when I was trying to impress a boy on a beach. So there I was trying to walk out the sea looking like a Bond Girl in my bikini, holding my tummy in, when a big wave came over and knocked me flying. I virtually crawled out, covered in sand, hair all in my eyes, coughing and spluttering and spitting sand everywhere. I looked more like "like the thing from the deep".

Anyone else done anything silly trying to impress?
