2 big fixtures

Comedy Dave | 15:24 UK time, Friday, 9 June 2006

060606_yh_dave_70.jpgDave here live from Germany, settling into our villa and new continental lifestyle in the middle of nowhere. We’ve not really had a chance to explore properly as yet as we never arrived at our Hansel and Gretel style chalets until about 9pm Thursday night, and then were straight up to do Friday’s show live from the deep dark forest, but we’re hoping to go off and find out what local attractions there are on offer shortly.

One thing that did catch our attention as we tucked into our welcome meal of pork stew and sauerkraut, was a pamphlet for a nearby monkey park which features chimpanzees on quad bikes and Orang Utans on BMXs or something, which is something that everyone around the table was keen to explore further by the end of what was a tiring and emotional night.

The weather is currently very pleasant , and the holiday camp which contains our chalets is actually very pretty; albeit quite remote in a rural setting that’s a bit like the German equivalent of Norfolk, but with more trees.

The immediate plan is for myself and Chappers to head off to Baden Baden for some disco disco action, as The Chappers and Dave World tour becomes truly international with our first ever gig in continental Europe. Granted it’s for a load of lager swigging England fans all getting ready for tomorrow’s game in Frankfurt, but the fact is that we are technically abroad, and are therefore one step closer to achieving our goals of global domination.

Before that though, a dip and kip beckon as I gear myself up for a blistering set of world class dancing music tonight on the wheels of steel, and then tomorrow’s journey north for the first of England’s group matches against Paraguay. For those that can make our Chappers and Dave world cup curtain raiser, It’s two big fixtures in the space of 24 hours, so let’s hope that neither disappoint, as we soak up the atmosphere, culture and at times rather workmanlike food, in the country that we like to call, Germany.

We’ve all been asked to write these blog things on a sort of daily rotation system, so I’ll no doubt be back at some point later with my thoughts and observations on our time out here, which will be something for you all to log on and look forward to at an unspecified future date. Until next time then......willkommen und Guten Tag.

saturday second half was more than
dissapointing a bit of a let down to

Coming back on the the "nipple" discussion. It is actually spellt "Brustwarze" which is the kind of technical term. You can as well say "Nippel" which is pronounced as in english ...

G'day Dave

You must be happy with Everton boy Tim getting 2 in for the Soceroos! Perhaps they can be your 3rd or 4th choice team? The Aussies will welcome you on board the bad wagon. Come down to Munich for a few quiet lagers on Sunday

Another favourite there, Antony! It's spelt Brustwurz (pron. brust-vurts) and does indeed mean "breast wart". German is such a romantic language. My friend Neil once accidentally pronounced it Brustwurst ("breast sausage"). From that day onwards he has referred to breasts as "bra sausages" because he's that kind of person.

hi dave,hope chris shared that crate of beer with you ! please could you slip our song on whilst your out there,(savva nuvva by English Pride)
we are headlining at the fifa festivial on the 20th june !

Hey Dave, I loved the German lesson on Friday's show. I wondered if you could manage to squeeze in the word Luftkissenfahrzeug at some point? As a man of your education well knows, it's pronounced luft-kissun-fart-soig and means hovercraft (literally: air cushion vehicle). It's my favourite German word and to be honest it can be tricky to get through a conversation without it.

Enjoy the Fußball and also das Discodancing!

Hey dave...happy the weathers nice for you all, but here, i bet, is even better...26 degrees here in glasgow it was today...phew!

Oh have a good night at the chappers and dave world tour thingy, i wouldnt know how good it would be since you NEVER HAVE CAME TO GLASGOW. Ahem, but thats no reason to judge, chappers and dave, i love you still =D

Anyway, have a great time in germany, and coming from a scot....i wish england all the best of luck. I would have added a nice little joke consisting of what can only be described as scottish and english banter, but that qould ruin my true sportsmanship. No, seriously now, good luck ;-) xxx
