Any Other Business / Etiquette Call.
December 30, 2009, 09:08:39 AM
So, England have just won the Second test in South Africa and I read this on their "LIVE TEXT COMMENTARY (all times GMT)" It's quite a quandary really. Some guidance would be appreciated.

Quote from: "BBC Cricket Website, Live texts from SA obviously in SA time""Have England ever won before 11am before? What's the appropriate time to crack the beers out. Tough etiquette call, that one."

Given that I read this at 9AM. Help!

Other Bands / Abigail's Ghost.

So, how can you possibly not want to listen to a band that describe themselves thus.

Sounds Like   A transorbital lobotomy with a hint of melon.

I'm listening to thier MySpace stuff right now and I'm rather enjoying it.

And stranger, I searched the forum to check out any previous mention of Abigail's Ghost and found THIS.

So, your thoughts on Abigail's Ghost, Strange occurrences or anything else?

Announcements / We're Back

Well, the holiday in Spain is over, now just memories but very, very good memories. The weather for the first 3 days was glorious, wall to wall sunshine and in the mid 20's. From Wednesday onwards we had a bit of a mixed bag but on the occasions it did rain it was at least warm :D .
The three main activities of the week were, i) Walking (mostly from bar to bar), ii) Drinking, obviously all that walking required much refreshment, iii) Eating. The food at the hotel was just acceptable, unfortunately you could have as much as you liked. Combine this with the drunkenness and it's perfectly understandable that I came back just slightly heavier than when I went.
I've just been and weighed myself and am rather surprised to see that although my belly looks much bigger and the trousers are a bit tighter I've only put on about 5 pounds, perhaps all that walking stopped me putting any more on.
I have to say a big thank you to San Miguel, Cruzcampo, Estrella Damm and Mahou for the fabulous entertainment provided both from my own consumption and that of others.

Oh well, back to the grind. :(

p.s. I had a beer for ALL of you, at least once. :twisted:
