Whew! Glad I am neither nice nor articulate.

 

Agreed.

 

You weren't included in my thoughts when I posted either.

 

Other than a turnip kinda thang.

 

Which I'm trying to kick.

I'm not happy today, just for today.

 

I've been happy for a few weeks.

 

Because very nice, articulate, American ladies on here have invaded my inbox.

 

I'm sure if I decided to invade their inboxes, I'd be arrested.

 

 

 

Yeah, unless it's helpful, say what you need to say out in the open.

6 hours from start to finish to cook the perfect British Christmas lunch. (It was yummy!)

4 beers.

A bottle of very expensive Chardonnay (absolutely yummy!)

Now I'm staring at the unopended bottle of Jack.

Jack or bed, bed or Jack?

I think I'm drunk. :wacko:

But happy!

Hello Jack D, my old friend
I've come to be with you again...
 
And touch the sound of coma.

I would reject your use of the word obtuse. It's such a negative word.

 

I prefer cryptic. Much more positive and makes people think. Hard. See above. ;)

 

King is cool though. B)

 

I'm now very drunk.

Yes, I'm quoting myself as I can read some negative vibe comments in reponse to my original post.

 

American ladies (or any ladies, or men ( @hooperski you can fuck off and die. Now) or those inbetween are always welcome in my inbox, any day.

 

Maybe my last sentence was misconstrued, and nobody got the cryptic humour.

 

I apologise. It's 100% my fault.

 

Elsewhere, I've now passed the...

 

Dead_Kennedys_-_Too_Drunk_to_Fuck_cover.

 

...stage. But I'm happy and still on topic!  :D

 

PS: Shit song but great t-shirt to wear. B)

Or even Bundesverdienstkreuz!   But there are far more people who put greater effort into running the sport.

@ChelskiYou are the King of obfuscation, and I bow to you. I'm happy that Joanna Lumley got recognised by the Queen, but a bit miffed that Vanessa Redgrave wasn't until now.

Redgrave turned down offer of damehood in 1999.
