I just got back from Portugal a few days ago. It was great! We found an Iron Maiden tribute bar called Eddie’s Bar, apparantly Iron Maiden used to stay in Portugal loads. Someone idiot told us that Eddie, who owned the bar was an Iron Maiden roadie for 6 years. We asked the girl at the bar if we could speak to Eddie but got funny looks from everyone as the girl tried to explain that Eddie was the fictional zombie mascot of Iron Maiden. We felt very stupid.

I was roasting for the Interweb when I got home and was dead pleased to find the following headline on Yahoo: Pie overload threatens baking tradition.

We went to see the Breeders last night. They were on top form and dead funny. It was ace.
