Quite the landmark.
So, errrr......ask me ANYTHING I guess.
pretty enough to warrant me pretending to be a Guardianista.
It's happened before, it may happen again!
I love Aspall's, it's a nice Suffolk cider, but Thatcher's comes a close second.
Come festival season I am all about Brother's Toffee Apple cider though.
hyphens for your screen name, instead of, say...full stops or underscores? forward slashes even?
also, how much is the most you'd pay for fish and chips?
I always associate underscores with email adresses.
Hmmmmm...well, at Chez Fred (Bournemouth's premier fish n chippery I'm happy to pay 9.25 for their sit down meal, but you do get a large cod/haddock/plaice, chips, mushy peas, a bread roll, a cup of tea or coffee and a bottle of Carlsberg.
Klaire, MirriLondon, Emmi_London_Girl?
Fuck: Emmi_London_Girl (She's hot, so why not?)
Marry: MirriLondon (Although she is betrothed to another, so tis' a hopeless cause)
Kill: Klaire (Nothing personal, it's just that she's the last one left. I'm not violent though, so I'd probably just slap her with a Swiss roll).
is it because 'marry Mirri' is such an aesthetically pleasing combination of syllables when said out loud?
judging purely on profile pics I'd concur, though I'm not sure about doinking a Lion.
when I eat Chunky KtKats though.
Thats such a euphamism.
and endless scope for gags about '4 fingers'...
I don't know ye well enough but safe to say my mind is beginning to wander.
profile picture doesn't do her justice at all. Not that there's anything wrong with it, she just looks a bit fucked off in it!
IRL, she's really pretty and smiley and stuff.
she is genuinely gorgeous!
i completely missed it all. or not as its pretty nosey of me.
Nah, it's okay.
We fell out over something, but I still think she's cool.
ill stop now :)
chocolate or blueberry muffins?
But, chocolate cupcakes every single time.
is the difference between muffins and cupcakes, there are many differing opinions on this issue.
I would say that cupcakes are principally distinguished by their flat top and their tendency to have a layer of icing on the top.
thank you good sir
cake related queries!
who most of you probably won't know, his postcount is only around 400 or so, but we went to sixth form college together and I've known him for about 11 years. He's a good friend.
not sure how that slipped my mind!
He's lovely, we've been to many festivals/gigs/parties together and used to spend lost weekends in Southampton at such glamorous fashion hotspots as Nexus, The Joiners and err....Subway.
and how long have they been your favourites for?
probably Weezer actually.
I'll never tire of Blue/Pinkerton, have bought each of their albums on the day of release (even Make Believe....should have stayed in bed longer that day!) and yet somehow haven't seen them live since 1995 due to them pulling out of Reading 2001 and their UK tour that same summer).
PLEASE let the new album be killer!
and it is a tough questio. id have no idea who i would say.
TOUGH COS I ALREADYHAVE>
could do with a coffee though, are you making?
who would you choose?
"which serial killer would you choose to be" not "who would you choose to kill" or anything like that
he was rock n roll and basically knew how to have a good time...err...when he wasn't murdering people anyway.
he has a good band named after him
but he knocked out a cow with one punch
Interesting character, bizarre to think that he could have been released decades ago were it not for his habit of going absolutely mental all of the time.
i think every so often he must get bored and decide to take a hostage and jump on a roof or something
prison must get a bit dull!
Do Heinz still make those spaghetti dinosaur shapes? I loved those so much.
if a man came at you with some long needles and said he would either poke out your eyes, or ear drums so you had to choose between being blind and being deaf, which would you choose?
from Somerset though, presumably?
I'd choose deafness as ultimately it's be easier to live without sound than vision, there are a lot of places I've yet to see, but I've already enjoyed a multitude of great times through music.
it's all very freudian!
according to Freud the fear of having one's eyes poked out (see Oedipus obvs) is basically an expression of the fear of being castrated, and there's some link to the fear of being buried alive or something as well, I can't remember
most people would rather have their ears injured than their eyes.
pain and squeamishness (is that a word?!) too.
and i mean, not being able to listen to music and having to learn sign language would suck.... but to NEVER SEE ANYTHING ever again? Man
Also dependent upon whether or not this next Weezer album is great or not, I may well just give up on music altogether anyway!
the thought of never hearing another band again is pretty scary... especially when i have a massive list of bands to investigate
you would never see the faces of the people you loved, potential girlfriends, future children, and then there's nature and all that stuff, and you could fill up the void from music with watching tons of films and stuff
and besides this isn't just about BEING blind or deaf, it's about having your eyes (or ear drums) POKED OUT WITH NEEDLES!
and yeah the thought of both scares me a lot, but i think of all the things i do music makes me happy consistently
and they're from the West Country just like me!
I think they serve Cheddar Valley at my brother's pub. Will give it a try.
there used to be a place in Reading called Alleycats which was a basically a cesspit with a PA system.
It reeked of BO and sewage!
Have you tried St. Hellier's Pear Cider.
If so, verdict?
It took me a while to get into pear cider, but I am now a convert.
As the event approached, were you worried that you'd miss it?
I noticed earlier this week that I was on around 9,700 so decided to monitor my post count closely then today it finally happened.
I guess the next milestone is 15,000?
Has anyone reached that hallowed total yet?
across multiple accounts.
Is he the longest standing DiSer other than Sean?
DiSers like guntrip don't get sacked for posting excessively during office hours!
I may watch Desperate Housewives in a minute.
is your favourite desperate housewife?
Susan is clearly the one that the viewer is supposed to relate to and she'd be the best 'wife' from an all round perspective, but I love Bree. She's just incredibly sexy, I suppose because she's buttoned up so tight and she can cook which is nice.
