You haven't lived until...

Postby Angoid » Sun Mar 18, 2007 9:12 am

You know when people say, "You haven't lived until <insert activity here>"?

Well, I thought I'd try this. Say "You haven't lived until ..." and insert an activity that either you've done, been involved with, or has in some way affected you.

Preferrably humorous ones, but anything will do. The only rule is that you have to have been involved with it. So please don't say, "You haven't lived until you've had a lemon signed by Moya" unless you really have had a lemon signed by Moya :)

Let's start......

You haven't lived until you've had a trader try to sell you a magic carpet in exchange for your shirt in Essaouira, Morocco.

You haven't lived until you've had your favourite Moya song dedicated to you by Moya at a live concert :lol:

You haven't lived until you've been stuck in a lift in China.

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started

Very true!!!!!

You haven't lived until you've had to do a cat-buglery act in a police training college in full view of policemen who have asked you to do it :D

You haven't lived until you've had your car driven into by a police detective in the grounds of the aforementioned police training college :lol: (fortunately it wasn't too hard and no damage was done)

Angus what HAVE you been up to?

You haven't lived until you've seen yourself cheering madly at a televised Clannad concert :D

You haven't lived until you've had Moya laugh with you while singing 'Closer to your heart' (really an experience)

You haven't lived until you've listened to all your favourite songs from 'Two Horizons' on top of the Hill of Tara

You havent lived until you've..

climbed a mountain

been camping

performed solo in a concert

You haven't lived until

You've sat in a cafe with some of the best friends in the world with drinks, glue, paper, a big book and the most spectacular scenery going :lol:

You haven't lived until you've visted County Mayo (definitly)

You haven't lived until you've sat in a coffee shop for about 3 solid hours writing your Christmas cards and the music was all Enya :) (although it would have been better had it been Moya, of course).

You haven't lived until you've flown from Jersey to Guernsey on a 12-seater aircraft, and had the pilot talk to his assistant when loading up saying, "If we put him there, him there, this luggage in there and that luggage in there, that might work" :shock:

You haven't lived until

you've been told you're loved by someone.

you've been to Münster and ate and drank chocolate and glühwein until you explode on the christmasmarket X)

you've been to Graubünden, Switzerland.

you've managed to sink with your canoe in the middle of a lake and have everyone come to rescue you :roll:

The turn of the day, when all music fools come out to play until the drunk turn of night.
