THe last time I had rum will be the last time I have rum. Urghhhhhhhh.......

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Jan 2014 13:30:34 GMT
Well of course you can't drink it all, that would be fatal. even the amount I have in my cellar ( by which I mean a cheap BIY metal and soft wood rack under the coat hooks by the front door) would do you in.

Rarely touch spirits (well OK I do have a malt after Sat/Sun dinners) and beer these days and mostly drink wine. On the odd occasions I visit a pub I'll have a pint as the wine they tend to have have just isn't on par with the stuff at home and paying 30 quid for a bottle I would get for 8 just doesn't appeal. I'd probably prefer going down pub with women than the mates as they seem to be able to talk about any number of things rather than a 4 hour conversation about booting a pigs bladder from one end of a bit of grass to another then just doing the same thing over and over and over and over...........

I love being daft, having a laugh and chattering away about nothing in particular but I tend to prefer men's company on the whole to womens? - as I couldn't care less about the usual subjects that my women friends talk almost exclusively about? I don't do gossip (it is often so shockingly bitchy IMHO), watch reality TV shows, or have any interest whatsoever in celebrities whether they be major or minor ones. I also personally think that it is incredibly disloyal to your partner or husband to be so open with female friends about the very private things that I feel should really just be kept confidential between a couple too? And so sitting around to listen to constant or incredibly indiscreet comments/criticism by someone of either their partner, their children or other family members to a gaggle of gal pals at a get-together and often simply for the sole purpose of either attention-grabbing or supposed entertainment is just beyond me, I'm afraid? I'd far rather go and watch paint dry with their partner who has usually been confined for the evening to 'a den' in a cold and draughty garage or garden shed instead! ;o>

I have no children of my own - although if I'm honest, that was not entirely a choice thing, it just (sadly?) happened to work out that way (at least up until now...?!!) and whilst I genuinely do love kids - I really do not want to sit through 4 God awful hours of listening to 'how my episiotomy scars are finally healing', or how the potty training is going either, when I am kindly invited out to a 'fun girly' lunch!!! And at my age, it is also at the point where it is now also all about the grandchildren as well?!!

I absolutely can't stand the colour Pink! Brace yourself now too, because I also don't collect teddy bears either! - I have 7 toys that all have a lovingly deep and meaningful significance to them and all of the many hundreds of others that I still continue to keep getting given as gifts (at the age of 45?!! ...I mean? COME ON!!!) are politely received, discreetly bagged up, and after a suitable period of 'ownership' they then go straight to a local Children's Hospice charity...sorry?!! ;o>

So do those pointless frilly and fluffy scatter cushions too - why, oh why, oh why, does anybody want things that have to be constantly set up artistically and then dumped unceremoniously on the floor every time that you want to sit down on a chair or get into bed??? And also those stinky candles that some women are seemingly utterly obsessed with these days - yes, I'll happily concede to some beautiful plain ones in a simple holder, maybe a softly perfumed Musk or Vanilla one...but Dark Chocolate with a Hint of Banana or Lemon & Lime Meringue Pie scented ones? - Nah! forget it! ;o>

I'll drink virtually anything apart from brandy and any of those aniseed flavoured drinks (pernod, ouzo, raki etc) as the taste of them is disgusting to me. Favourites are beer (real ale if poss), red/rose wine & malt whiskey, (white wine often gives me heartburn as well!!).

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Jan 2014 14:05:16 GMT
The ladies could suggest how to cook a pigs bladder, perhaps....or what Cosmo suggest they be used for. The mind boggles.

Yes, the price charged for wine in a decent restaurant would suggest that the owner has a new Lambo to pay off three days hence. Outrageous!

Dan - cheers for the heads up. I will purchase some at the first opportunity. Also partial to toffee vodka, bourbon esp Jack D with honey, Irish whisky, limoncello...

Yeah suzy you're right about the gossiping about men, their members and sexual prowess ..or lack of it. I once dunped a girl after something very private got back to me via one of her mates boyfriends who happened to be a close friend of mine..which she did'nt realise. Not that I'd ever hit a woman but if anyone ever needed to feel the back of my hand she did. Why do some women feel the need to belittle their menfolk to their mates. WTF is that all about?

So, your brassware is distinctly green as we speak......?

Wait till Collette reads that heretical diatribe suzy! She'll be sending emergency relief packages of teddies and decorative frilled cushions!

I read it with shock, Mr B. I love all my bears, the colour pink, cushions in all shapes and sizes, gossiping AND wine. I think SuzyCloudy needs to go and wash her mouth out. :0)

Agree with just about everything you say, Suzy. Only one or two differences - no-one's ever dared give me a soft toy and I'm childless by choice.
The cushion thing drives me potty! On a similar theme, I can't see the point of stupid signs -'Home', 'Peace', 'Love'. I hate rooms full of family photos.
Also why hang huge tellies on the wall? Unless you sit directly in front of them, you can't see properly and you crick your neck. And then people watch videos on a 4inch phone screen. Crazy.

I've very few female friends and luckily we like the same things. No celebrities, nothing pink, no personal info.
I love wine but hate champagne or other sparkling wine. Can't stand coke or any other fizzy drink.
In fact the only soft drink I really like is apple juice.
I've never seen Star Wars and don't intend to. I dislike most animation and cartoons. Never watch sit-coms. I hate Christmas. I hate turkey.

Any decent living room should have an empty corner where bloody cushions should be thrown after thier removal from chairs and settees. And blinds which will always go down never up. And washing up bowls. Why put a bowl in a sink? Do you put a bowl of soup in a bigger bowl? No.

You're right not to bother with Star Bores Lez, it's plodding and overlong though well put together...for its time. To which I'd add Pirates of the Caribbean films, the whole Star Trek thing, Dr Who, Indiana Jones (except the first), Lord of The Rings/Hobbit (films and the ruddy books), Harry Potter, all those Marvel comic films, Pixar (hon exception of Shrek - Toy Story's dull pants..IMO), Disney, most James Bond films esp the Craig era, did I say Dr Who. Well then again Dr Who. I disliked it as a kid, I curse it as a parent. The recent obsession for vampire and zombie films and TV dramas.

Wow Nuge, we're made for each other!

But Collette...? just means that there are all the more teddy bears, more pink things, more cushions in all shapes and sizes, more gossiping AND wine left over - AND it's all yours!!! ENJOY!!! ;o>

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Jan 2014 16:37:45 GMT
I don't look good in hats either, by the way, Lez Lee?...think of Paddington Bear with the brim pulled firmly down and you'll get the picture! However I do look rather good wearing a nice neat little pillbox style 'fascinator', if I say so myself? if there is a wedding in the offing???...!!!

Lez Dirt...?...hmmm...? ;o>

No hats, Suzy. Trackie bottoms and a Rufus Wainwright T-shirt. A onesie for Nuge. No Dirt - it'd have to be Nugent Lee.

If men talked about their other half as openly, intimately and freely, as in the way that some women talk about theirs - it would almost definitely end up in war being declared between the sexes! And I actually really don't want to know about what is happening in the privacy of the bedroom between a couple. Advice and reassurance is one thing? I used to be a Nurse and so I am certainly no shrinking violet or a prude either. I just personally feel that it is an incredibly disloyal thing to do...and if I ever caught my partner at it? - I'll throttle him! ;o>

I'm still wearing the black suede pixie boots, studded biker jacket and pillbox style fascinator though!
And Roo will come dressed as his online avatar? - a 6ft 3 cross-dressing Kangaroo (please don't ask why!) ;o>

I'm safe. Absolutely nothing going on in our bedroom so no gossip material there

We know...your wife set up a thread about it on the Peter Anderson Forum earlier! ;o>
