How odd. But lovely.
Yup, that's it
depends with streets you frequent :O
we could have even gone to the same school or something.
There's a life lesson in there. Or something.
Or I could have served you at work.
We could have spoken and we'd never know!
Shit gets meta
I may have even seen them too and not known it.
I miss the days when there was only about 2 Edinburgh DiSers, now you're all here to freak me out.
at least i did when i last knew where you lived (morningside?)
where do you work? can i come and say hi? :D:D:D:D you'll know who i am cause i'll look slightly manic and start blathering about the intertronz
I approve. And people need to keep guessing.
Cos I'm full of mystery and all that
good thing probably, would be a bit stalkerish if i did
I hope I did actually tell you and you've not been stalking me ¬_¬
ATTENTION ALL EDINBURGH STALKERS
I work in Starbucks on Forrest Road, just weekends if you ever want to run in and say "ZONINO!" and run away again.
This will be my calling card
you should both come on the same day at separate times to really freak me out.
See how many other Edinburgh DiSers you can get to join in.
you're not allowed to order any drinks though, that's too much effort but you can all come in with your DiSisms and say hi.
I might end up just saying "Are you from the internet?", which may give the wrong impression to any observers ...
just don't come in looking like a scary paedo and it'll be fine.
in which case you may get a funny look and be escorted away.
But then again it does sound like a pretty amusing situation in my head
but I could be hidden away doing other work stuff and you could be carried off without me even knowing!
If there's anyone who'll be shouting SOAWJO in Edinburgh, it'll be me. At my neighbour.
All the time, we'll find each other eventually
ONE CARAMEL MACHIATTO ESPRESSO WITH EXTRA SPRINKLINGS OF NUTMEG ESSENCE FOR ME PLEASE.
unless you're just ordering it in a really REALLY weird way.
cause i live in bruntsfield and shizz. I'M COMING IN ON SATURDAY! Actually i'll probably just walk past, imagine how awkward it would be to actually go in and be like 'hurr durr i'm off the internet' and then go to the christmas market.
then pretend that i'm actually late for another thing.
i know where you work.
For the awkward-squad. We are everywhere
i bet it was craig foley
But no. Good try
Wasn't it fun?
let's do it more often
Maybe next time it'll be near yours, just to mix things up
65dos gig in Manchester innit. Won't know who they are though (the DiSsers, not 65dos).
how do people know that DiSsers are DiSsers? Is it like... a spidey sense or something?
I'd have no idea unless i'd seen them before in a photo or something, and even then I'd probably doubt myself.
It's bloody weird.
Normally the most bitchiest members on DIS are the friendliest.
i can't keep track
would terrify the shit out of me.
Would probably rather be in a room full of tarantulas
Other than that ... quite fun, yeah
like... its a lose/lose situation. If they like you on the internet there's loads of pressure to be as cool as you are here... you inevitably fail. If they hate you then its just mortifying. If they're apathetic then... its just a bit heartbreaking.
You act just the same online as in real life. Then it's all gravy, no?
I do see all the problems you say though, just that it's all been smooth sailing so far for moi
Also, wish 65dos would come and play here sometime. Just don't have the energy to go *all the way* to Glasgow when they come over.
I know I know I know.
Also, it's really obvious. Look at all the this's and sideways glances.
Now show your working
Cookie for you?
I wanted a real one.
A real cookie will be yours to enjoy.
Or I could just post you one?
Post cookies aren't good cookies.
I put a cookie in my bag for "later" once ... it died ... horribly :(
in the middle of summer. It went black in a few hours and my book smelt like rotting banana. :(
After a drunken ramble in a field this summer ...
By the time I woke up in had soaked right into my friend's white carpet :'(
but i don't know what any of you look like, and vice versa. I always see some regulars at the acedemy who i always wonder if theyre DiSers. I think i've seen terribly_bored but obviously i'm not going to go to his face and go "HEY IT'S BISTO FROM DA INTERNETS".
But yeah, look out for me
I should look out for a dog with a top hat on LSD.
I can't really miss you, can I?
Nah just look for 3 awkwardly stood teenage boys at the front, at least one of the other 2 will have no idea what sort of music is being played either. But i need gig friends, and my friends are rubbish
Was it me?
Some guy bumped into me coming off the tube earlier. Didnt even apologise. Bastard.
Insulted her though
point b) i was laughing at you for a full minute before you realised who i was
point c) yeah.
B) Yes, that was very mean. The high five was a nice touch though
C) WHY AREN'T YOU ASLEEP?!?
I've bumped into a few and been in a room or near to others who have later been pointed out to me. I like it.
I don't like it when I'm out with the boy and we meet up with beardy moousse, gowman, martin etc and some real life people ask how we know each other. Um....
I'm easily in the top 3 most famous edinburgh dissers. In fact famous edinburghurghs.
he doesn't actually know who you are. you mean nothing to him.
Note to all: avoid walks, she only bring forth pain and bizarre bruising
would you like some mdma?
jus no thanks
go on here have some i'm from majorca
ok no thanks thgouh this is my bf
here is some mdma
REMEMEBER? AMAZING NOSTALGIO <33333 X_0_x_0__X_O_Xx_X
It was odd. But lovely. Just like in the OP.
in fact for some btown lulz look up the GAS thread.
also there was a mentalist called Miss_something (understood?) who would post here and actually originated the "jumped-up indie bellend" DiSism when she accused bamos of being the aforementioned. foppyish comes from belfast but lives in london (bit stalkerish i know that but there you go), and baron_von_kevin is from derry. a DiS meat would be cool but a bit pointless, i'll probably just say hello at a gig if i spot you.
but the rest is all a revelation.
I think i'd be mortified if someone shouted "YOU'RE MEOWINGTON OF THE INTERNET AREN'T YOU?"
I was going to say "But meowington, it'd only be one foolish person who'd be that blunt about it".
And then Scout appeared ...
I'm a joy to meet :)
To be fair most of the time 'stairs buys me loads of booze then he points at someone in a club and goes 'that's xxx off of DiS'. He knows what'll happen next, I make a fool of myself and drag them over and then he gets to introduce himself in a calm, cool way whilst I take all the INTERNET NERD blame/points (definitely points)
let's seee hmmmm
scout scout no so good
Van Gok Wan, Van gok Wan pretty hilarios
yes_ yes_ boring
ghostpony completely crazy and funny
those are all the dissers i can think of off the top of my head
he tried to do computer ageing jfk on an ipad and turned him into the president from teh west wing
like the internet is some kind of magical realm in Middle Earth. "I AM MEOWINGTON SON OF PUSSINDOR, CAPTAIN OF THE INTERNET"
If you were and you happened to stumble across a pair of earphones in a metal tin give me a shout yea?
especially if I'm with other people.
"You're that guy aren't you? From that thing, yknow ..."
Is that if I've already met them before, being that Edinburgh's the size that it is, even if we just know each others face from round about, or mutually or whatever, it's then the big dawning of "WAIT. UR WENEEDMORBOOZ??!?" n a go 'aye', and then THAT IS AWKWARD.
