After Six Nations anyway as my weekends will soon revolve around that.
sport and pubs = urgh
Also, I can't stand rugby. Not that it's all about me. Do what you like innit.
Also I'm toying with the idea of something which isn't a Spoons crawl.
The other idea I had was a Monopoly-themed one but the thought of trying to get you lot to 20+ pubs just puts me right off.
So it'll probably be Spoons again.
so going to more than we did last time would properly kill me.
Come this year
Yeah, I'm alreet.
(I stay out of those threads)
What makes you say that?
TBF the only people off here he talks about are GG and Dans.
I meant the only people he mentioned to me after meeting everyone was CG and Dans. CG because he was quite drunk and Dans because they had a really good high five.
He's such a spectacularly nice bloke I can no longer spit vitriol on his political threads.
he spoke to me for ages (not about that, just about general chit chat). i think he was watching me so i didn't give you another cigarette
I was really drunk. I don't remember the last 2 pubs.
Splash o'milk, no sugar, ta.
Quite often read for 30 minutes or so every evening before bed. I just really like reading.
you said your method for dealing with it was so disgusting we would no longer respect you, yet you didn't actually share what it was.
Can you tell us now please?
wipe my hands on the underside of my chair.
If there's no-one around:
gobble it back up again.
NB: the toilet is a good minute's walk away. Also yeah I know I'm disgusting.
... I do this too sometimes.
But this *is* a AMA thread, so...
where did the name come from?
There was a line in it which said "fake plastic submarine". It's from that.
What biscuit would you be?
Probably a Maryland Cookie. They're alright, but once in a while you get a proper NICE mouthful :')
[no I'm a pacifist answer, you have to fight someone]
I'd win. Special power: 3 tiered minky.
I'm a brown 1 belt in Shotokan Karate*, I'd fuck you up in seconds.
Also if you could travel back to when I was 11 that would be useful as I can't remember much now.
Though I may for the beer festival in May.
As I am back living nearby and we can get workhouse coffee.
and given that I've put up with a barely working first generation iPhone 3G for 6 years now, am not too fussed about spending big bucks.
Thinking of going down the whole giffgaff route and getting a Moto G or Nexus 5. Which would you recommend?
Oh, and you live near me. You, me, Bamos and Sophie should have SE London beers...
I had beers with Bamos and Sophie in the Hob randomly a couple of months back. It was lovely.
As for the phone: the Moto G. It's half the price but very nearly as good, will get the Android updates nearly as quick as the Nexii (*uses?) and looks to be really good. I think fidel_catstro has one?
Will order one tonight...
I'll try and sort something out on Twitter for drinks in a week or two!
TBH, lots from that would be good because I've seen them on every tour since about 2005.
Apart from that: 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong.
I'm a HUGE fan of black IPAs. This is lovely: http://darkstarbrewing.co.uk/the-art-of-darkness/ I also fucking LOVE weissbier.
I'd probably go for a lemon drizzle over most things.
Anything seeded. You know, I've never had sourdough. Need to get on that.
1. There Is No Real Courage Unless There Is Real Danger (from Once Like A Spark)
Why? REACTIONARIES! READY INTENSE! Also: dat riff and Cahir's backing vocals. Probably one of their best songs.
2. Magnetic Sea (from Don't Try)
Why? Once again, incredible riff.
3. A Miracle of Science (from Zero for Conduct)
Because really, I prefer their rockier stuff.
4. Song for Sonia Sanchez (from Backlash Cop)
Because I don't know this record anywhere NEAR as well as the others.
will you take him to task for this?
vamos sent me that via Twitter yesterday. Can't believe he described the Capitol as "a vast converted cinema that effortlessly ramps up the hopelessness of anyone seen drinking there". It's a lovely Spoons. Ninny.
We knew if we wrote a book of
Concrete lines, concrete rhymes,
Songs and then an album that
We'd call the record Backlash Cop
My friends would come and lay it down
And we'd believe it all
I also need to buy the live at the Lexington mp3s.
you use a credit card to pay for it and then pay it off. is that the trick?
its just seems like you're on holiday a lot and i'm jealous and need to know the secret to affording it if the secret is using a credit card
because of foreign currency transfers and I pay it off immediately (sorry, no idea what the trick is, though my holidays don't usually cost much money as I fly budget and stay in apartments / rubbish hotels).
Best overall holiday = Malaysia. Wonderful food, loads of different things to do (you want BEACH? Check. You want rainy mountains? CHECK. You want a vast sprawling monopolis of a city? Yup. JUNGLE? That too), it's cheap and I didn't want to leave.
Though if you asked me for my favourite city it'd be Granada in Spain, and my favourite country is probably Poland.
those are amazing
Is there something I should know?
