Vaunt the Good Vibes

Recommended Posts

I'd appreciate it if you kept my family out of things in future responses. That goes for all participants.

 

Probably the best way to achieve that would have been if you'd not mentioned family in the first place.

 

Each of us chooses really how much to reveal of ourselves on here, some are quite open (me included, but then I have no life outside of the internetsad.png) so can expect comment/banter/piss-take back; lots only talk about EFC. If you only talk about Everton no-one would mention your family.

I'm with Mike, I'm quite open about what I talk about, it doesn't bother me. If I get stick for it, I take it because it was I, who left the door of opportunity open for abuse/banter.

 

Stay the enigma that is DK, don't get personal or you leave yourself vulnerable. I'm a big boy, with far more patience and calm than they'd have you believe. So some 'stick' doesn't bother me but there are some more volatile/angry/whiney characters within the forum that may react badly to suggestions of banter. Don't leave yourself open.

Not going to go into detail because my opinions are pretty much the same as Mike and J, no malice was intended and if you can't take stick on a forum then don't leave yourself open to it.

 

Everyone gets their fair share of stick, myself included. The stick that's given to me I don't mind as you'll see the same light-hearted banter throughout the forum and I don't take anything to heart, in fact I welcome it. By reacting in such an aggressive manner because it just makes people want to do it more.

 

Last words on the matter - cheer up and don't mention things if you don't want them to be joked about.

Really pressed for time today but once again, no harm done all said.

 

I'm not one to be messed around but would always try to reach a compromise rather than escalate any situation. That is the best course of action here. There is no need for hostilities. Everything is dandy.

Boxes of twenty four Stellas for £14 in Tesco's.

 

More importantly they're proper 330ml bottles instead of the poxy "one gulp and they're gone" 285ml that are the norm these days.....that extra 45ml makes all the differencetongue.png .

 

I apologise in advance to DK for drinking at home again....I'm thoroughly ashamed of myselfsad.png .

It was only because of that, that I even decided to participate in it.

 

It was merely a one off. I could watch an episode of Countdown right now.

Probably would be given the deal I've gotjump for joy.gif .

 

But I didn't really want to go to Bournemouth.....it was a light hearted dig at a certain south coast based member who questioned the need for holidaying abroadwink.png .

We went to Greece once.

 

Couldn't understand a word anyone was saying.

 

No, but Bournemouth is a nice place all year round I always found, a more benign variation of Blackpool. Certainly worse UK sea resorts you could visit for sure.

 

For the benefit of this thread, it gets dark early now and stays dark later in the mornings so i guess I was kind of pleased with that. Born in December in my defense, never was one for the sun.

No, as in 'it's all greek to us' maybe, It wasn't necessarily 'go to Greece and can't understand the locals'

 

I undertook several foreign language courses at various colleges but Greek wasn't one of them, although I believe it was available. Such a small percentage of the world speaks the language, so you're better off with French or Spanish for vacations and trips away where it may, or can be utilized.

Just came back From Singapore and Malaysia, and for those having their Gears grinded by the cost of rail travel. A Ticket From kuala Lumpur to Batu caves (only about 10 miles) on a new train that had TV's to watch while you travelled cost 1 Ringitt ( about 20p) :)

HOw was Freeze PeteO?1

I didn't go, train times weren't any good and was too pricey, had to chose between that and the derby. Bit guttered like as I liked the relentless wakefest the other year and wanted to go, hopefully go next year. Made up the derby was a decent game.

You got excited over that

 

Over not sitting around wearing coats all day and not spending an arm and a leg on an electric heater to keep one room warm enough to live in.

 

Yes.....it made me happy. I'm even happier now it's fixed.

It's just that one person's cold is another's tepid, that's all

 

If people move around or find something to do, it's a good enough guarantee to stave off cold, I always found.

 

So long as you're happy though.

 

Not everybody can say that, so count your blessings etc

Was in Asda just now perusing the beer section for my week-end tipple when a shelf filler with a big trolly said to me, "We've got these on clearance..."

 

Was packs of twelve cans of Stella for £5 that he was just going to put outohmy.png .

 

He had nine of them....I bought eight (would have felt bad not leaving any for others to share my good fortunetongue.png ).

 

Well stocked upbiggrin.png .

Damn what ASDA was that in? I was just in the big one on Smithdown Road and spent 10 minutes in the beer section. Settled for Foster's in the end, 10 minutes well spent doh.gif

Wellington, Somerset....so a bit of a trek for youtongue.png . You'd have to buy a lorry load to make the trip worthwhile and they've only got one box left (or probably none by nowlaugh.png ).

ASDA is a decent store to purchase, but most of the time, it's a lot of (staff) kids standing around just fraternizing or doing next to nothing. I give them a wide berth if I have any glass bottles or sharp objects in my hands on route to payments.

 

I can't drink Stella Artois, makes me vomit every time. Liquor or stronger beverages, not a problem however, but I just can't drink the former.

Saw in the news recently that Colin Murray will be relieved of duties as host of that awful MOTD2 program. He's the one reason why I just don't - no, just can't watch it. Don't even get me started on that 'individual'.

 

Only problem is, the fucking thing doesn't come into effect until start of next season, so that's another few months of missing highlights, but at least something got done, and I was quite pleased with the news. They're going to replace with someone off Talksport, so it doesn't look like they'll be much difference from before, but it's got to be an improvement.

I don't mind him, prefer him over the rest of the kopite pundits/presenters (not including McManaman as he's a blue).

I agree....Guardian blog puts it well for me...

 

"Others will mourn the passing of a presenter who at least attempted to bring to terrestrial television something of the way normal people speak about football.

Murray has a style, a schtick, a sense of basic questioning intelligence that would not be silenced by the constriction that often clogs the veins of BBC sport output, caught between the beaming condescension of its interchangeable presenters and the sense of sullen celebrity entitlement evident in the lolling satin-shirted big hitters of the football couch."

It's spot on that. Shame really, I struggle to understand why BBC want the show to be so bland, not a personality or any added value at all between them.

The one main reason I dont watch highlight programs anymore is because of the presenters featured. Most, but not all - are merely banal, nauseating, irritating and mundane fucks and Murray falls into that category with ease, in fact he's one of the leading culprits. I don't get excited much (outside of the bedroom), but when I read the news that Murray was leaving, fuck me, I did have a spontaneous moment of jubilation, even if short lived.

 

If they want a proper presenter, get Mark Bright or Claridge for instance. Two men I have a lot of respect for and provide some good analysis, but the BBC always manages to make wrong decisions and feature the most horrendous people you could imagine. Won't be long now before they grab the fat abomination that is Adrian Chiles back from ITV again, just for good measure.

Because they want to keep the ex-pro's happy and some of them weren't happy with him. Joke really.
