I went to the Goo Goo Dolls gig on Friday night in Dublin with Chris McC & Chris T. Two concerts in two nights - how great is that! I don't claim to be a huge Goo Goos fan but their stuff is pretty easy listening so i knew i would enjoy it. The concert was great, it was in a small venue (Ambassador Theatre) which made it all the better and i was pleased that they sang a lot of their material from Dizzy up the Girl as well as their new album Let Love In both of which I'm fairly familiar with.
So we were staying at this apartment (friend of Chris Mc). It was lovely and we arrived back after the concert with pizza only to find a mouse happily skipping across the kitchen counter. Anyone who knows me well will know that i don't cope well with any sort of vermin at close range (think its inherited from my mum!), so at this point i was starting to panic. Thankfully the 2 Chris's were a bit more masculine than me and cornered the mouse with a frying pan and rolling pin and a bread board! Basically the mouse finished up flattened between the bread board and the side of the fridge with the bread board being pounded with the rolling pin! Meanwhile i'm still seeking refuge in the living room until i get the all clear! As you can imagine this left quite a mess in the kitchen to be cleared up, so we decided to eat the pizza first before tackling the next problem of getting the squashed mouse into a bin liner. This turned out to be a 3 person job and one of the most hilarious and discusting experiences ever! Oh the craic!
