Liblog: Milkshakes

While we were in Buffalo we went to a restaurant near our hotel and, as noted on the previous visit, the milkshakes, though very thick and resembling something unmentionable, tasted delicious so a lot of us ordered one - not just to take the mickey but also to enjoy the extremely good taste. Twelve of us ordered these lovely milkshakes and we waited for about five minutes only to be informed that the waitress had dropped them, 12 beautiful milkshakes wasted!

So, after nicknaming that waitress something unheard of to mankind, we waited about three more minutes and out she came again with our heavenly milkshakes and tried to put the tray down - yes, you guessed it, milkshakes went flying and so did the waitress trying to catch them. Twenty-four beautiful milkshakes wasted, we were on a roll! To our dismay we were then told that they had run out of milk, Even though we did enjoy seeing the waitress do her acrobatics, some of us were not so happy missing out on our delightfully thick milkshakes.

We do hope the waitress hasn't killed herself as the waitress we nicknamed Dolly Parton told her off extremely enthusiastically. We lost 24 milkshakes but gained a fun night.

Liblog: Singing at a Papal Mass in New York Yankees Stadium to 60,000

Singing for the Pope was really cool, but also scary and funny.  Funny because when we were waiting to go on this trolley of food came by and on top was a plastic bag with a piece of paper saying ' Pope Food' on it. And there were loads of priests we had to squeeze past, and they were all joking and taking photos on their mobiles. 
But it was scary to walk out in front of 60,000 people - and on TV -  and to stand in the middle of the stadium and see the crowd in broad daylight – normally you can't see the audience in a theatre.  And I could hear them – with that many people cheering and clapping it's loud!

But once we were in place I couldn't see because the baseball floodlights were so bright so all I could do was sing.  And then there was no time to be scared. Afterwards we had to bash through the crowds and get to the airport still wearing our white robes 'coz we had to catch a long flight home for school the next day!
