Lived up to the hype?

Filed under: Random stuff - uncategorisable — chriscroft @ 11:14 pm

Disappointments which didn’t live up to the hype

· Cairo museum
· Copenhagen – little mermaid
· Mona Lisa
· Sistine Chapel
· Stonehenge
· Gordon Brown
.  Angkor Wat (though the other temples in the area were brilliant)
· Caviar

I expected it to be good
– and it really was:

· Venice
· The pyramids
· Led Zep reunion
· The Taj Mahal
· the rest of India
· New York
· Machu Picchu
· Michael Angelo’s David
· First view of the Exterior of the Duomo at Florence
· Cirque du soleil show at Las Vegas

Things I just don’t get

(sorry – you go ahead and enjoy them, it’s probably me!)

  • Opera
  • Golf
  • Lap dancing (like looking at lovely doughnuts when you’re hungry – why??)
  • Sushi
  • Tribute bands (like sex with a very realistic inflatable woman)
  • Tea
  • Sailing (Cold, boring, and vomit-inducing)
  • Glee
  • Horses (expensive, uncomfortable, and thick)
  • Pubs
  • Pink Floyd’s The Wall (apart from Numb and Brick of course)
  • The Beach Boys

  1. Don’t get. Totally agree: golf (but would have to add all other sport too). Opera, Lap dancing – ditto – totally agree just wierd.

    Tea, sushi and Copenhagen (and Scandianvia, Baltic States and most of former E. Europe…) generally great though, although never bothered to fine out where the mermaid was.

    Florence v. disappointing (and too hot to do anything anyway). Venice – went there but it was shut.

    It’s starting to sound like the Paul Whitehouse ‘brilliant’ bloke sketch from the Fast Show….
