Today is a very special day – I’m FINALLY going to see Monster Trucks at the o2 Arena!! Let’s have a photo!
Hopefully the next photo I post will be one that I’VE taken tonight!
2 years ago I cancelled and sold on my tickets for this – the event being ruined by another mini-lockdown, or if it wasn’t quite that another round of mandatory face mask wearing. I am NOT going to a happy event only to have to stand there breathing in my own fucking breath for 2 fucking hours straight. After selling my tickets on I was determined that one day I would make it to Monster Trucks Live. Today is that day!
I’m hoping to be able to find and reach a Popeye’s Chicken restaurant too – either before or after the event. That would be the icing on the cake for me – seeing as the last time I ate a Popeye’s was in 2000 – the last time I was in America. Popeye’s are finally spreading out in the UK, but it’s at a very slow pace. I suppose with extra costs right now they’re having to take it a lot slower than they initially thought. But the bulk of their branches are actually dotted around London.
Naturally, fate has attempted to ruin my special day – and the train drivers are on strike today. Well FUCK YOU, I’m driving it – seeing as you’re apparently determined to cause more carbon pollution. Or rather, my friend is driving my car (another worry – my beloved Honda sat unguarded for a few hours in the middle of London). So it’s a mixture of fretting and excitement, which is going to feel very confusing. I’ll just have to try and shut the fretting part out, until we reach my car again.
But let’s think only positive things!!
