Better have a meet up with you too Dave - before they come and take you away.

Mm, yes I suppose I am a bit like this and if you think that's weird then try clicking on the link to the flip side which appears towards the end of the track. Well, actually It might have been fun to react to my relationship breakup like that but I quite boringly gave a big sigh and went plodding on a long road away from it. More Spock 'n' Roll Over than headline grabbing stuff.

Awww bless you Dave but yeah ok I get you :? Well the bit about the toilet seat.......Do you know that really winds me up it's really not that difficult guys to put it back the way you found it!!!!

Nice pizza Jamesey any plans for cooking today? I have turned over a new leaf this year and promised to make an effort in the kitchen made a fantastic steak pie last week so chuffed with myself, but that's enough for another fortnight might try something next week can't be bothered this weekend too much like hard work ;)

Hi sweethope it was good ;)? I'm actually trying to eat more healthy non processed foods. Forget the above example :oops: Great learning how easy it is to make meals from scratch. Learning about herbs and stuff ;)?
Today I will have egg noodles with broccoli and ginger and a little soy ;)?

:\: Can I join you?

Every so often I catch myself looking at couples in town and wonder what's so bad about me that I have been single for the last 5 years.

Then I get home, make a mess with nobody to moan at me, watch a bit of rubbish TV, duvet-day it with the dog, get up in the middle of the night and surf the net (like now, it's 3:30am) and realise I wouldn't be able to do most of this if I wasn't single so I think I'll stay that way :D

I had to fight my way through cling film to get in. I thought it was for 'mysterious' reasons, but it was just to cover all the food. You could have wrapped Sweet hope up, kept her warm. Or is that silver foil?

Right, that's enough! We've all had a lovely time but I need to start clearing up and get the house straightened out for tomorrow's conference on Joculating Through The Ages. Thank you for visiting. Have a safe journey home. I suggest you leave the grounds via the West Gate; there is less traffic on that route.

Now, shall I leave the toilet seat down or down? Down, I think.

Be with you in a mo sweets. Just need to dislodge the half of a salami stuffed down the back of the chaise longue in the purple drawing room. Oh look, two emery boards, a blacksmith's file and a pot of foot cream. How strange.

No probs DannyD but I refuse to believe those toenail clippings are yours. What has been going on here?

(Hey, blastfrom the past. Do you remember the incident of the hairy feet way back when on our journey through the challenges?)

Took a bit of searching but I found Jon's old photo album. Golly, rooting around in the BE archives brought back some memories. There was a lot of larking about on the 2- monther back in the day. I used to be World President dontcherknow. As appointed by Pope Slingy I :D
