    So my daughter who i get once a week says that she wants to go ice skating. As always I try to do my best and make her stay with me a good one. I looked up on the net where the nearest ice rink was (that was not the one here cause our one is shit) and it turns out that Milton Kenes is our destination..

    Well we turned up only to be confronted by the absolute dreggs of humanity. You could write a sitcom about it.. You had the kids awkwardly chatting each other up and showing off infront of the girls, The normal families from the estates who have a million kids, the ppl who take the sport far too seriously and then the wierd old men who for some reason can skate really well but all look like serial offenders.

    Anyway we turn up and i put on my skates that look like the shoes you'd give to a disabled kid or someone with a club foot and hit the ice. The place itself was dirty like a back ally soho shop or a kiddy porn dungeon. I can only imagine the hits 93 cd must of been on its last life and that the neon lights were working on a wish. The staff were definatly the kids who at school used to get bogged washed and probably left education cause they were too thick to live.

    I dont know if anyone watchs vic and bob (heros of mine) but these ppl could have been straight outta one of their sketches. I will not be going back there in a hurry..

    Anyway stay away from planet ice or whatever its called.. infact stay away from milton kenes in general cause its a massive shit. The only redeeming feature was that they have a big toys r us..

    I miss going to the ice rink.

    Those were the days when you were 15.

    Never go on the ice. Just hang around looking for slags to finger. Those were the days.

    Ice skating is badass, along with any sport where you can build up immense speed and callide with people. Rollypollying accross dancefloors is also great fun, kinda like human bowling, give it a try.
