What hobby/ies will you take up on retiring?
no one actually knows the rules, but it's still fun.
Dying my hair grey, walking with a stick, and pretending to forget things so I can wheel out the same stories again and again without having to listen to other people's boring anecdotes about their boring lives. Also, pissing myself and letting the state clear it up.
who cares, i like it in here. i feel like we're the chosen people or something.
um, bowls has got its merits i guess. i'd quite like to be good at golf too. and maybe a bit of gardening.
else we end up with all the unsavouries.
its a pretty tightly run ship, questions wise. a bit like Scientology.
Oh shit the quiz is on...
you provide the dominoes
Is this a "this is the thread for non-quizzers" thread, or is it a ^this thread for non-quizzers?
PM me your answer and I'll award points based on how many agree.
Can we have a login for these threads to provide quizzers from entering. It vexes me!
.'Champions League'. spots for a week.
He could give us one of them. The Lipster.
Isn't this the website that sean ran into the ground?
I'm off to the shed
You disgust me.
Does that happen in the UK?
in the open air (-10°) there was a hot bathing pool with a load of fat old hungarians playing chess in their swimming trunks. it was brilliant.
enjoy sweating so much?
maybe that's a hobby that i'll take up. sweating like fuck.
keeps us alive, helps us get through the door but GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT
I fucked that up.
This finally make me feel like I can post
For a hobby I think bird spotting and shouting at people randomly in parks.
Do you have to be Jewish to do that?
feeding birds in parks hobby
and, you know, fuck it up a bit?
the longest post in the history of the internet onto that thread then believe me I've got your back when they come for you
if we could surreptitiously combine the topic of cement with the end of the world into a provacative question wza and creaky would be our unwitting sabouteurs.
Throw in some vaguely comic statement and joeymahone will this it for us too.
I suspect they're already lurking in there
The longer they are all couped up in there licking their computer screens in unison, the better.
can we talk about retiring again now?
i'll probably do that when i'm retired. be one of those guys who actually go to county cricket matches
I'm going to travel the world.
letching for sure. I'll do it in a way that seems sweet and endearing, when deep down in side I'm having dark thoughts.
I'm going to intentionally leak myself in public
YOU'RE ALL FUCKING READING THE QUIZ THREAD, AREN'T YOU?!
No fucking way.
Stop trying to stir up shit
it was alright
aka back to the future.
So, I reckon I might take up glue sniffing.
I like the bit about admitting she takes photos of people on trains. If I was aware someone was doing that to me (highly unlikely) there's a very real chance I'd put down my paper and have a word.
Not sure if it's someone on the wind up.
was heartwarming to see people still posting in it 6 months later despite the lack of any reply after the first few posts.
A Non Quiz Of Course.
You're becoming obsessed.
I don't hate anything expect the exploitation of vulnerable people.
You meant except?
go back to the quiz you dribbler.
But aren't we all fucking doomed n shit?
i intend on living on a yacht by then.
little or no pention as a result of not planning for retirement.
We're all *planning* to live like P Diddy in our *heads*.
otherwise it's holidays to scarborough feeding seagulls leftover chips and dying a little inside
where some old fellas were in one of those bands where you wear straw boaters, striped blazers/waistcoats and play brass instruments and clarinets and drums. They had an old dear playing double bass. They looked like they were having fun. Maybe they take turns on the lady?
go to anything of those re-enactment of history things like that Jane Austen Shit they had on Masterchef a couple of weeks ago.
maybe I'll move to Italy or Spain and just sit round a table in the town square with some other old men drinking, eating and smoking. Granted I won't have a clue what they are saying but I think my attitude will transcend any language problems.
who wouldn't want to be one of those guys? I'll tell you who, Quizzers on here.
One of those guys.
Especially in France, where they'll always be a group of them playing boules and one of them just sat watching, grumpily smoking one fag for about five hours. He's the pinnacle of old European manhood.
3 espressos in about 5 minutes then one measure of pernot and a 2 litre jug of water. take note, OAPs in wetherspoons.
saying 'Do you have a senior citizen's discount?' anywhere I go
despite her goldplated pension / mega-payoff still clutching at 20p off stuff
My boss just got bollocked for giving me work to do :D
Don't like, relegate me or something.
Does anyone have any tips for keeping a duvet from bunching up inside the duvet cover at night? I always wake with the duvet in a ball inside the cover and it's begining to piss me off.
I blame the cover. It appears to not want the duvet inside it. It is rejecting it like a donor kidney.
