Why do we think blowing on dice will help the outcome?
Booked flights to Berlin last night YESSSSSSSS
I have no money NOOOOOOOOO
Spent too much already on comics and CDs.
Enjoy Berlin and poverty!
Plenty of time to gather funds, though in the meantime NO FUN FOR PN :(
Of course he knows.
there were studies that showed drivers passed CLOSER to people who blew on dice?!? Should pedestrians blow on dice????
Plus it's magic.
Btw this IS the Friday thread.
if its a clear warm sunny day, then there will be more air disturbance as the sun heats the surface up, but if it's cloudy and muggy and cooler, the thicker air will allow the dice to swing, or something like that.
also.. a vegas thing isn't it.. to get a sexy person to give you luck. then shower them with gifts with your winnings in exchange for sexual favours.
Staying on Pickford Street, where should we eat?
Been looking forward to this weekend for a while now.
We're going to tear Manchester a new cock.
down port street, call at the port street beer house for a pint, then youre in the northern qtr.. loads of places to eat/drink.. cane and grain, el capo, the northern quarter restaurant.. to name a few
the weather (for now) is clear and sunny!
Are you coming to the "launch party" tonight?
Tell me where it is and when, please.
blowing, praying, sacrificing goblins - whatever you do, you always chuffing miscast or fail that important armour save :'(
Incredibly pleased the week is almost done. Feeling shiiiiiiiiiiiit
Talk to me about blowing on dice
but I'm open to influence.
and taste of cinnamon
You can blow your own ball-dice, EmO.
I've actually got a nutmeg/cinnamon autumnal blend going on right now.
Also, why is it I can't meet someone with intellegence? This is the following exchange I had with someone last night:
Me: "I was listenining to a really interesting pod cast about the Ebola virus"
Him"Oh yeah I've been reading up about it (laughs)
only half my post. Great.
Would you blow on someone's dice for luck?
Haven't you seen 'Contagious' (the movie)
** The asshole 56 **
Him "Oh yeah I've been reading up about it (laughs) everyone thinks it's an epidemic. Obviously it's not"
Me: "Well, it is..."
Me: "anyway, they did a segment on the HIV virus too, interestingly there are 3 strains..."
Him: (Interrupting me) "Well you know what else has 13 sensitive areas...the asshole"
Him: "Well we were talking about sex..."
"I just want to go home, drink a glass of wine...and decompose"
I'm about 95% sure this is Muscle Man from Regular Show
I like the cut of their jib
I'm not there. i was told about the delivery at about half 5 last night, with an option to change the delivery time. conscious that that was an inappropriate delivery time, i logged onto the delivery mainframe and attempted to rearrange a time when i wouldn't be so distant from from. like Tuesday. Tuesday would be good, as I'm already waiting at home for our new bookcase to be delivered. Pleased with myself for being able to get to both items delivered together, i was about to click confirm, when i noticed they wanted to charge an extra £6.50 to change it. woah! that's not happening. Looks like someone's going to have to walk the quarter mile to the regional delivery distribution center tomorrow. FOR FREE! (assuming they don't leave it with a neighbour, they sometimes do that)
going to Checkpoint Charlie at the AD tonight, for some deeply house swaying.
not going to feel like doing much tomorrow I shouldn't imagine, so I plan to (if needed) pick up the coffee machine, before getting the ingredients for christmas cake and making christmas cake whilst boozing.
I'm pretending Sunday is a long way off.
No one asked.
I'm very tired today, I think my body is giving up on me. I pulled a muscle in my right bicep yesterday putting my phone in my pocket, it even swelled up! Today I woke up with a spot under my right eye and my right shoe is squeaking very loudly! GOD DAM YOU RIGHT SIDE GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER! I have lots to do and lots of job stuff to sort, I think I might go sleep in a bathroom stall for a bit.......
Focus dof, focus.
Dry off the pressure sweat! I thought about joking about making the ladies bend over and pucker their lips being the original true motivation. ..then I thought maybe it actually was the where it came from.
I have my last weekend of chilled editing to do then I'm finally caught up and fun life can begin. I also start putting money away again next week so YAY YAY Gonna get some tickets of gigs tomorrow and go shopping and buy lots and lots of nice things :)
bent over to pick something up and the right hand side of my stomach just seemed to crunch. The pain. Ok now tho.
you know when you put your back out? It was like that, but on the side of the stomach. Was weird, maaaaaaan.
You too, Chairman! haha injoke.
Mostly Nick Cave songs and people mumbling. Also included a pissing terrible landfill indie cover of Red Right Hand, which left me OUTRAGED.
because that's great.
It was #mince
but I'm sure she'll come by and appreciate this.
from smacking myself in the face with a fencing whacker yesterday. Feeling pretty proud.
probs a quiet one tonight as have a stag tomorrow, yikes.
there's some drilling going on upstairs and it sounds like really enormous grunts and it's making me chuckle at my desk. life.
and I started smashing it. Everything long and straight and on target (I was gripping too hard with my right hand and tensing that arm too much). The only problem with that driving range is its a lake and some swans came by. I was worried I'd hit them.
Desperate to play a proper game now!
Tonight - much needed alcohol
But we're talking about blowing on dice. I'll accept posts about 'the asshole' too.
It's looking deeelihtful. Must pop into the coffee shop.
and made it all cute and curly! (Going running at lunch so it will be ruined)
I can never get it on the green, I'm great at putting and driving but everything else is rough and sand so I go all happy gilmore on the ball :(
Have you played 18 holes before?
I'm waiting for my golf man to get back from holiday and take me! I'm not sure id be any good at it though. I've only just started getting the ball to go kind of where I want it, rather than just smacking it.
We're taking the team there in 2 weeks, should be a laugh.
It's so good!
I haven't been for a while, looking forward to it. Which one did you go to?
If you want to go again sometime give us a shout, I'm sure we could get a small group together!
Yeah, definitely up for getting a group together to go.
we managed to get a pretty good group package.
Definitely up for getting a few people together for an evening there!
I'm going on holiday to the Highlands tomorrow. I'm very excited, but it means I have to get through a terrible busy day of work first.
Dice. Blowing on dice. Why do people do it?
to make them more aerodynamic. Like cyclists shaving their legs.
where in the highlands? the weather is beautiful just now- blue skies and crisp, but really quite warm in the sun (I had to take my scarf off on Princes street earlier as I was getting clammy, and I'm back in glasgow now and the sun is streaming through my open window. Just lovely. although a hurricane is due to hit on monday).
I'm going on a sewing course for a week, I did it once before three years ago so I know how lovely it is there. But this time I'll have a car: any suggestions where I should go for a day-trip on Sunday around there?
at Corrieshalloch- completely stunning!
going to go there, thanks!
due to going out for drinks with the neighbours enjoyable though. Less enjoyable was having to stay at work for an extra couple of hours for team building.
BJJ tonight, some assorted gigging/clubbing this weekend but nothing major might try and see if I can grab a ticket to see Yuck on Sunday.
^one of the twelve reasons why Jake Shillingford loves me
my new Get rick Quick scheme and I've decided to go after my dream and launch Dick on A Stick. details to follow (only at beta testing stage so far.)
Rick has nothing to do with this.
this gives that side a bit of extra kinetic energy which helps to bounce it back onto the side you do want it to land on. Alternatively blow cool air on the side you want it to land on.
and maybe a degree of blowing, does that count?
Thanks CornPo! :)
Did it at the Olympic velodrome. There are four stages you have to pass before you're qualified/get a racing license.
It was my first time riding in a velodrome and it was incredible! One thing I never really appreciated was just how steep and tall the bends are - it was a little intimidating at first. Couple of laps round and I settled into it pretty quickly though.
It's also (deliberately) really, really hot in there. Because you go at quite a pace the wind evens you out when you're cycling, but when you stop you just sweat buckets.
Can't wait to go back, and definitely keen to get good enough to take part in a few races, but it's really not the cheapest hobby (lucky I earn £55k).
This is about blowing on dice and you know it.
i'm doing the hoovering instead
but I know someone who has
Thanks everyone, especially those who stayed on topic and/or used 'the asshole' as a punchline.
disappointed in shucks
Moved yesterday. It's odd, moving, isn't it.
where is it? I am excited for you. moving feel;s very weird but you'll get settled really soon and everything will be so good xxx
But yes it'll be cool once I've settled... Cally Road, KX end this time.
I hate actual moving. Never want to move ever again.
- packing: not a problem
- pre move-out clean: dull but fine
- unpacking: positively love it
- all the people that are involved with making a move happen: fuck them.
Especially as I still have nowhere to live :(
I've got two tomorrow though but they're up by Finsbury Park/Crouch End so not sure if i want to live there or not! Could be cool though.
Couch end is trickier transport wise, AND you would be within a two mile radius of Fidel :(
which is VERY ANNOYING
that's me just in. thought i'd have a morning reading the papers and drinking coffee.
went to a wine tasting networking thing last night and flirted so much with this german girl, i haven't flirted that much with anyone in ages
I'm not gonna do much today
I'm off to Bruttis for lunch with BJ. Might have some cava.
the wine was very good, and for the first time ever i enjoyed a chardonnay
wines are chardonnays (chablis, pouilly fuisse, eg.) i've come to realise that I like french unoaked ones, I just don't like australian or californian oakey, buttery ones.
can fuck right off
there are some rich, big, buttery Reds that are wonderful
i do love big fuck off reds though
Anyway, made it through to lunch. A poxy 4 hours to go. That's going to drag isn't it?
Dishwasher advice, out for a run, out on da booze is my plan for tonight. Tomorrow some fixing round the house (maybe), before the mighty Sky Blues v Brizzle. Out tomorrow night for a friend of Mrs C_B's birthday. We're going to a gig before a club night so we'll probably stay there all night. Costs a fiver anyway. Anyone guess which 00's floggers we're going to see?
Sunday probably more fixing, watching football, run.
which will involve sitting in the pub watching football most of the day then drinking with a few friends after.
I need to fess up, this actually WAS the Friday thread! :D
Oh boy, if you could see your faces right now!
how can I EVER trust you again!?
just had two packets of pom bear
I don't fancy a sandwich, tell me what to have
I think you should do it right now
I had 2, both were exactly what I wanted
i quite fancy a tricolore
spoiler alert: it tasted great
THIS IS NOT IT!
(the last two times mine was waxed was on a Friday, so for me this rings true.)
only my own, and in certain places (back and arse, basically).
When you're a more hirsute chap, it becomes a consideration.
Or the other thing up-thread.
and been likened to 'the fly', you maybe get more of a complex about it.
Don't have a complex. I'm sure you're a beautiful man!
I feel bad now. If it helps, I have a pretty grim skin condition that I have a massive complex about.
it's my own issue and I'm happy that I deal with it, so nbd!
Also got the wrong bus like a twat and ended up missing a class because of it. I'll be staying in an actual hotel tonight, looking forward to that so much (especially cause I'm super tired). ALSO GONNA GO DRESS SHOPPING LATER which I am pretty, pretty, pretty excited about.
Just keeps getting better!
kinda freaking me out
I think he saw me looking.
THAT's the reply you're going with?
wait for it
