Took DD and 2 friends into the city today to stalk One Direction.

Waited in a  queue in Pitt St for 45 minutes to get into the merchandise store, for the privilege of spending all their pocket money on crap. And $2 for the Official Carry Bag to take it all home in!. Then, after a quick consultation with Twitter, it was off to stand outside their hotel and scream in ecstasy when "they" appeared at a window 30 floors up and waved.

Then more screaming when "they " were driven out in black vans. With blacked out windows, so who knows if, in fact, "they" were actually inside.

Lost track of the number of middle aged ladies who, with a gleam in their eye, stopped to tell me it was "just like The Beatles"!

Whilst I know nothing about One Direction, I remember what it was like being a teenager and being obsessed by certain music groups.  So I also that is awesome that you did that with your daughter, she will remember that forever.  i remember my mum getting up with me at the crack of dawn to catch the train into the city to line up for tickets to see the Spice Girls with my mum 15 years ago.  It was so much fun, and so exciting when you're so young.

Yes, you are an awesome Mum!!  I loved watching all the teenage girls on telly screaming and carrying on trying to get a glimpse of them.

One of my daughter's friends facebooked asking who wanted to go see them in Bris and for about 30 seconds I thought how awesome it'd be to take my daughter in.  But she burst my bubble by rolling her eyes and saying 'Mum, it's One Direction, not LMFAO!'

I was so dissapointed :-(

How cool of you.  original.gif  I would do that if my DD was into it.

I am thankful that whenever 1D are mentioned my 13yo DD just rolls her eyes and makes disgusted "screaming girly" noises.  I don't think she's the type to stalk a band.  Bless her.  laughing2.gif

I can sympathise - they were certainly loud! I was standing right by DD when "the hand" appeared, and I copped an earful. I retired to the cafe around the corner, with my book!
