Wouldn't take the girl home to meet your mum by jump the ladder (4.00 / 1) #1 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 01:31:58 AM EST
Too tarty, chavvy or ugly or some fucked up combination of all of them?

Aw, she was alright. Quite liked her really. She had the cold emotionless eyes of a shark though.

Good job, nebbish by extremely tedious HuSer (4.00 / 1) #3 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 01:42:39 AM EST
Thank God there are still some people left making sure kids grow up mistrusting everybody. :-)
Perhaps they wanted to happy slap you, but you were too tall and couldn't reach?

It's bad I know by nebbish (4.00 / 1) #4 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 01:46:14 AM EST
But it doesn't feel right talking to strange kids any more.

I was nice to them though. Had the most intelligent conversation I've had in ages to be honest.

Then you should be a teacher by Rogerborg (4.00 / 1) #6 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 02:10:31 AM EST
Based on the adverts for it, it doesn't involve much more than chatting up HAWT SMILING PRE-TEEN GIRLS.

They do make it look rather attractive by nebbish (4.00 / 6) #8 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 02:19:47 AM EST
The adverts should be crowned with similar slo-mo footage of a teenage boy twatting a supply teacher with a chair.

But I don't actually know any Scottish seaside places. I spent a week in Stranraer once but I'd hardly recommend it - the highlight was a visit to fucking Belfast.

Also went to Girvan once as a child *shudder*

I really don't know by nebbish (4.00 / 1) #10 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 02:32:59 AM EST
There might be a Govan in Glasgow, which isn't the same place.

Girvan - shitty grey seaside town full of unemployed punks (the 1970s kind, but this was in 1988), set in admittedly spectacular scenery.

It does, however, have facilities, like a bus stop.

Brighton by Herring (4.00 / 2) #12 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 02:38:00 AM EST
(Something I was going to include in diary).

Mrs. H. is doing her teacher placement at the moment. There is s trip to Brighton. One of the parents refused persmission because "there are a lot of funny people there". Right.

According to Julie Burchill's new TV series by nebbish (4.00 / 2) #13 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 02:42:10 AM EST
it's full of glamorous lesbian schoolgirls accompanied by pop music whereever they go. I'd have been tempted to visit myself if I hadn't been already and seen it's full of tramps and hippies.

WIPO (and other stuff) by idiot boy (2.00 / 0) #16 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 03:31:49 AM EST
Robin Hoods Bay. OK so it's not a resort exactly but it's the only place I've seen a bloated dead sea lion.

Anyway, did this pulling involve a proper Kentish FITB?

What does that acronym mean? by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #17 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 03:42:17 AM EST
Robin Hoods Bay is indeed a lovely place. Have you seen all the TV programmes on recently about northern countryside? I don't know where they've sprung from but they're nice viewing.

<cough>ing in the bogs. by idiot boy (2.00 / 0) #18 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 03:57:02 AM EST
Not seen any telly in ages. Back in Edinburgh now and likely to be here for a very long time. Won't do the old air miles any harm if I ever remember to claim them.

Been given so much work to do I'm just kind of sat here stunned in a rabbit\headlights sort of way.

Don't know whether to laugh, cry or just jump off the castle.

Sounds like a good weekend. Wound up seeing a Chilean film on Saturday (Machuca). Pretty good - set in '73 as Allende's rule was coming to an end. Used the friendship of two kids (one bourgeois, one poor) to show the situation in the country as a whole (I think - never was good at figuring out what directors mean - just like \ don't like with me as you know).

Either way, I liked it.

Machuca's meant to be good by nebbish (2.00 / 0) #19 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 04:05:51 AM EST
I'm waiting for flatmate to get it from work.

No, not in the bogs. That's all you're getting though - a gentleman never tells.

How long are you in Edinburgh for then?

LOL by idiot boy (4.00 / 2) #20 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 04:10:45 AM EST
Silence speaks volumes my friend.

It's definately worth seeing. Saw it with the mad person who did nothing to dispell my opinion that they're barmy.

Edinburgh for probably six months. Should have an apartment soon. Somewhere nice and comfortable to hang myself following an overdose of Barbs.

Ah well, I hear Heroin is cheap and plentiful up here...

I'll be up visiting by nebbish (4.00 / 1) #21 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 04:15:31 AM EST
do you know how much the train is if it's well in advance? I'd imagine National Express might be a bit grim.

And who else could you have seen Macucha with? :-)

Good point by idiot boy (2.00 / 0) #22 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 04:24:55 AM EST
It was fairly obvious really wasn't it. All good clean fun you understand !

Machuca, not Macucha ;)

Travelling on a Friday - the cheapest is £90. It's cheaper to fly EasyJet from luton (£49 and probably less if you're clever). You've still got to get tofrom Luton or Stanstead though.

Heh! by idiot boy (4.00 / 1) #24 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 04:51:05 AM EST
Bring Al. We can make an event out of it :).

Book EJ in advance and you can probably get it even cheaper.

Saw something mad this morning. Remember you were telling me how Pidgeons, despite being filthy little bastarts, actually help to keep cities clean.

Well, this morning, standing outside the hotel, I saw some bloke walking his dog drop his sandwich. He sort of looked at it, shrugged and walked away.

About 20s after he walked off, a raven started stalking the sandwich. After checking around, he dropped in and pinched a bit of the sarnie. He kept mucking about for a minute or two until a squadron of seagulls turned up and tore the sarnie (and nearly the raven) apart.

End result, urban birds cleared up a tonne of food in under two minutes. Road was clean and no sign of birds again.

They must have sarnie detectors or something.

Ravens definately more interesting. They're shit scared of seagulls though.

Got to quit smoking at the weekend. Got a full on, permanent smokers cough now. I am the king of phlegm :).
