Bullets from Barca

  • First thing I saw on the Ramblas right after my previous post? The things you see in Barca? How's about a 50-something man and his mate, both bollock naked but for some underwear tatoos (I know, underwear tatoos, Jasus), strolling down the street without a care in the world. And hear this, one of them had a huuuuge willy. He walked ahead of me down the street slapping and flopping from thigh to thigh and from the rear it was like Snuffaluffagus from Sesame Street had attached himself to his belly and was trying to eat peanuts off his knees. *Quite* the eye-opening start to the holiday. I found out later it's not illegal to saunter about the streets of Barcelona with no clothes on, but hear me now, it fucking well should be. I have the pictures to prove it but it's defo NSFW like.
  • The people you meet? Ah Jasus. Who didn't I meet? There were two students in the bar the first night looking for work, who confessed to me later they only spoke to me because they'd heard me ordering and thought I sounded like Father Dougal and they kind of enjoyed it so they stood in my shadow for hours drinking pints, talking shite and listening to the comic timbre of my voice as I said "Mad, Ted" and "Eh, don't know Ted" over and over and over. Yer wan behind the bar was from Wexford and she told me she'd just taken a notion seven years ago and moved over. I told her I wished I had the gumption to do something like that and she looked me square in the eye and asked what the fuck was stopping me? I was extremely hammered but it made me stop and think, or at least made me wish I was sober enough to be able to and that's the same thing when you're absolutely stotious.
  • Wednesday night and Barca finally, finally exposed the weaknesses that have been creeping ivy-like over Man United in the last few months, and satisfyingly strangled them in the Champions League final. Oh how sweet it was. The celebrations afterwards (which later turned to riots, I was gone home though. And no, I didn't start them) were sheer lunacy. I've never seen bedlam, hurooing and pandemonium like it, and I've been in dinner queues in Cavan when the grub's run out. Suffice to say that I was extremely hammered and with 100,000 people in the streets all shouting, roaring, singing, dancing, spraying beer, launching fireworks, chucking dogs in the air and shooting them on the way down, and slapping each other across the face with wet kippers, well it was great to be there and the look on Fergie's face after was another picture to behold.
  • Thursday and after a day trotting around and topping up my sunburn for a few hours at Sagrada Familia, I crowd surfed my way to Via Liaetana and cheered home the Barca team with their big cup. I then met some big business noise with one of those annoying nasal accents like Michael Flatley where just when you think he's definitely an American it's a case of oh shit, wait, he's not, he's Irish...ooops sorry, he's American again...or is he...ah shit, now he sounds like that chef Paul Rankin so maybe he's from Belfast. It was Kildare in the end. He was actually a nice guy, just a little too proud of how much money he was earning. Then again, I was extremely hammered. But my prostitute avoidance skills - there has to be a downside unfortunately, Barca's is seedy in nature - were called into action very often on the way home and I dodged those biatches with a nimble street dancing routine not seen since Gene Kelly was in his pomp. They may have liked me because the secret was out about my sexy Fr. Dougal accent, I can't be sure though because you see I was absolu....ah whatever.
  • Friday and after my usual very late breakfast under the sun, at the little place on the corner beside my hotel, I remembered a suggestion on here that I take a cable car up Montjuic and because these were being renovated last time I was here, it was one of few first-time experiences I could have. So I did. And I nearly shit myself because it was a breezy day and it was swaying a little bit and we were up very high and crucially, I'm a big flaming Jessie as well. I wasn't even extremely hammered, just wishing I was. I took some video on my way down of this and the woman and her elderly companion in the cab with me were great fun - they were shitting themselves almost as much as I was.
  • Friday night was my last night and having sensibly elected to stay off the beer, I, needless to say, proceeded to get absolutely hammered when I fell in with a crew of ne'er do wells in an Irish bar. I think they made me sing which is a good sign of drunkeness in my book and one of the married ones was feeling my leg a lot and smiling vacantly which was a good sign of drunkness in her's I shouldn't imagine, but nothing happened, I swear. I realise now that all those other nights I thought I was drunk, these were just merely the dreams of the come-true drunkenness that ensued that evening of my last big blast in Barca. I remember very little but I think I had a good time alright.
  • Saturday, Sunday, Monday. It's incredible how tired I was but I hauled ass around the city to kill time until my evening flight and bought myself some Barca football shorts in memory of a great trip. Every time I sweat in the gym now I can remember my little break away, when the sun fried me every day, I melted in the heat and I purged myself of hangovers through my very pores. I went back to the little place beside my hotel - La Particella on Carrer D'Arago - where theya shpeak no Inglees - and had a slap up feed of meatballs and spaghetti. They were just amazed I wasn't having breakfast as it was 6pm in the evening after all but I put the tin hat on it when I gave the proprietress a fiver tip and she almost started crying she was so touched. Awwwww bless. I collapsed in the door late on Saturday night and slept for 12 hours straight without stirring, got up and could barely stay awake all day before going back to bed about 11 that night and kipping for another ten hours straight.
Did I have a good time? Ach it was alright I suppose.

26 moos and woofs:

Holemaster said...

Ah so you took the cable car to the Jewish Mountain!

hope said...

You're home. Now Susan and I can breathe a sigh of relief I suppose. The cow's expression was beginning to turn to one of worry instead of inquiry.

Personally I'm hoping for pictures. No. Not of the Man So Proud of his Privates he took them for a nature walk. *shudder* [and not in a good way!]

Glad you're back. That you had fun is merely icing on the cake. :)

Meadow said...

Ah, yes, that international Kildare accent.

Every day I wake up and say good morning to all the shiny little birdies on my windowsill who have arrived to help me make a dress and clean the cottage. Every single morning they tweet prettily. 'Where the fuck are you from again, Meadow?'

Baino said...

I remember my daughter saying that during their first day there, a woman slashed her wrists on the street and there was a brawl outside their hostel. All adds to the atmosphere I guess. And just because it's legal to be nude dude doesn't mean you HAVE to do it. Glad you had a good time! And yes, photos would be good!

Kath Lockett said...

Too. Jealous. To. Write. Anything. Worth. Reading.....

Red Leeroy said...

I demand photos, captioned photos, huge captioned photos.

Terence McDanger said...

Holemaster, ahhh, so it was you that prompted me. Up the mountain I went, and down again, and I damn near dirtied me pants a few times. It's not that it's particularly scary as such, I'm just such a WUSS. It's pretty cool at the same time though.

Thanks for your concern hope but I'm like a skunk shaped like a boomerang because I'm the bad smell that always comes back! Ha! I will post pictures later if any of them are worth it but the problem is I wasn't bringing the camera out with me at night when all the interesting stuff was happening. And no, willies are not interesting.

Meadow, it's so eeeeeasy, to make a ham and cheese toasty, and though it's lower in fat, it really don't taste like that....did I get the words right itself? Oh hang on, you don't watch TV so you won't have seen that ad...oh well, I'm not deleting it now.

Baino it's the downside to Barca, the seediness, and the vigilance you need to avoid the fraudsters, pickpockets, whores etc. It seems to have gotten a lot worse since I was last there as well. It's depressing how they have such a great city over there and yet the cops just pack up their tent and abandon it after 10pm, when all the scumbags come out and have the run of the place.

Sorry about that Kath, if I put in some of the things I left out for brevity purposes, I think you might explode...

Alright Red, you asked for it, I'll get cracking on it right away. I really want to put up old Snake Willy Willie for everyone to marvel at his magnificent Iberian Sausage.

Meadow said...

I googled. All I got was a recipe for a Po'boy sandwich.

A Po'boy sandwich?

narocroc said...

Stotious. What a word.

Adullamite said...

So you didn't fall out the window.
Tsk.......!

hope said...

How many photos did you take? Why else would you be so quiet, silently mulling over your artistic results.

Radge said...

How am I only seeing this post now? Brilliant stuff.

hope said...

We're beginning to fear someone from Barca slipped over the border to fire bullets at you.

Still breathing, I presume? :0

hope said...

Will there be a funeral for this blog, which may die of neglect?

Because I hear the owner has gone over to the Dark Side...Facebook!

Sigh.

The Giants will lean on rookie Andre Williams for at least Nike Air Max 90 one more week in New York's backfield.


Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported Saturday that Rashad Jennings is not traveling with the team to Nike Free Run Seattle because of the knee injury that has shelved the veteran running back since Week 6. Officially listed as doubtful, Jennings' absence comes as no great suprise.

Also for Big Blue, defensive tackle wholesale jerseys shop Cullen Jenkins, cornerback Zack Bowman and pass rusher Mathias Kiwanuka are all questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Seahawks.

After showing tantalizing promise in the preseason, Williams has struggled of late in New York's backfield. The rookie hasn't topped four yards per carry in a game since Week 4 and spit out just 22 yards off Nike Roshe Run 12 attempts in Monday night's loss to the Colts. The Giants NFL Jerseys saw better production from second-year runner Michael Cox and the unkillable Peyton Hillis.

After throwing an outrageous 52 passes in the Indy defeat, new nike nfl jerseys Eli Manning is a candidate to take to the skies again if New York's running cheap sale jerseys game remains NFL Jerseys Store stuck in neutral against Seattle.
