Hi Roberts,
welcome to the forum,
I hope now you have got this far, that you will actually join in with the chat.
I so admire how hard you try every day to get your scores...well done...
please join in..we need some more chaps on board..the few that do feel a bit outnumbered i think, amongst us gaggle of women.
give it a try, you might quite like it???

Hello Technomc,

Thank you for your invitation. As you've obviously noticed I have been playing for some time now, and I must say I thoroughly enjoy the daily challenge. For me though its '99% perspiration and 1% inspiration' as evidenced by my relatively low 'hit rate'. I can't work out how anyone gets over the 'Maven' with a 100% hit rate!  Can you? ???

You and the regulars (i.e. Binkie, 3B, Alonzo Q, bjs et al.) certainly run a hard race. Just when I think Alan W has got it wrong (i.e. 'there can't be another 2 words' on Monday's Challenge') one or other of you (or God forbid 'Mum' or Animalist') run over the top of me to collect the trophy!

Still I keep coming back...is that a definition of addiction?

Best regards.

roberts

Hello Mate,
How wonderful to get a response...
I was beginning to give up trying....
The fact that you get where you do...regardless of % is fantastic....
If you read back over some of the old posts you will see that we speculate regularly on how folk get where they get and how??? And we all have our methods of play....
Us old hands have some theories...but hey!
What is surprising is how many of the 'rare' words stick in your head after a time.
Percy Verance...that seems to be the key...
What ever it is you are doing, you are doing great...It is a frustratingly habitual little bitch though isn't it???
Anyway...a huge welcome from me....and i hope you join in on lots of topics...

Hi roberts

Nice to hear from you. I hadn't noticed your comments in your player profile, as hawk-eyed anonsi did, but it's such an ephemeral medium - the forum is surely better. (In fact, it was noticing how some players were trying to use their names or profiles to send messages that spurred me to set up the forum.)

I hate to disillusion you as to my personal vocabulary, but it's almost certain that the last two words in any puzzle are completely unknown to me. The full word list was compiled by other people and is about 50% terra incognita as far as I'm concerned. So I can only look with awe at those who can get anywhere near a trophy.

Hi, roberts --

Yes, your fevered pursuit of the elusive trophy and rosette show a fierce and determined effort that is admirable!

Sorry that I haven't greeted you formally, but with all the chatter and banter in the posts, it becomes a bit mind-boggling to remember which new forumite I may have overlooked to welcome into our midst.

3-B/BBB/threeb (the signatures keep getting longer!)
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on July 04, 2007, 09:29:54 PM
Hello 3-B. Thanks for your welcome.

Now 3-B, having 'silently' played for some months now, I've noticed how we all have somewhat different playing 'styles'. You, for example, seem to take a quick run at the new quiz and stop at a nice round number...like 80...before warming up for a second...and sometimes third tilt at the tropy. 'Mum' seems to just 'be there' from one moment to the next. Me, I'm a bit of a tortoise, making up 'new' words...well new to me...as I go along. I know that if I don't get a good run up before you start at your second 'tilt' you'll just run over the top of me... ;D

I attribute it mostly to ADD, roberts.  >:D

Plus constant interruptions, like a sudden nap coming on ... annoying telemarkers breaking my train of thought ... and of course, let's not forget that the forum most often switches my concentration and I get lost in the frequent posts.

3-B

...see, just like right now! You are well on your way to a new, yet very HEALTHY, addiction!  ;)
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Binkie on July 04, 2007, 09:39:48 PM
Hello, Roberts,
I know what you mean about different styles.... I tend to make a concerted effort, then have a break....which often tends to be fatal......numerous people have bounded up the board and overtaken me! Still, it all adds to the thrill of the chase, don't you think?  :D
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on July 04, 2007, 09:43:19 PM
Yes, I do Binkie.

Speaking of 'concentrated effort'...I forgot to register this evening and got up to 50 before a realised I was a dreaded 'anon'...doh! It's going to be one of those nights.

roberts
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: technomc on July 04, 2007, 09:47:55 PM
You are so right about different styles....
I punch in as many of the obvious words as i can...dip in and out all day..then when it is nice and quiet at home in the evening, i take my time and go back through, letter by letter, word by word. Saddo that i am, i try and use a 'new' word the following day at work so it sticks in the mush that is my brain...
I hope you are keeping a note of all  the 'new' words...they won't be new for long, for they pop up regularly...you will see....

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on July 05, 2007, 07:58:26 AM
Come on T, give me a break. I don't recall the last time I even got near a trophy.

Really, it was just luck...how was I to know that g*** was a 'real' word? ;D
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: technomc on July 05, 2007, 08:09:20 AM
I was only teasing...
very well done mate...it is a fantastic feeling getting a trophy..and i really don't mind you getting ONE... :laugh:
There are some strange words about and that's the truth...
What makes it harder is that not all of them are common to every country..so what is a commonly used word in Oz is possibly one we hardly use in the YUK...etc...
Now you know the mysterious 4 letter word i think you will be surprised how often it comes up...but when you have been doing this as long, and as anally, as i have, it's the really common everyday words that become hard to spot..either that or you just forget to put them in...
Anyway roberts...keep it up mate, you are doing a sterling job, and playing the game as it should be played.

Hey T, very nice of you to say so. I can sometimes spend a great deal of time working my way up the listings. I'm sure you can relate! However, following your earlier advice ( "What is surprising is how many of the 'rare' words stick in your head after a time. Percy Verance...that seems to be the key..."), I think I'm finally getting the hang of it...I ain't scared of 'Mum' et al no more!

Watch out this week..the contract i put out on you should be happening any time soon.....
If you see a drill-wielding swarthy mean -faced person staring at your knee-caps..it's me...so keep an eye out for the real assassin..[i like that word..2 asses in one word is fairly impressive i think]
I did say i didn't mind you winning the odd trophy or 2 not every bloody day....where is your sense of chivalry ???  >:(

I feel a David Bowie song coming on Linda...ah um (just clearing my throat)

Watching them come and go
The Templars and the Saracens
They're travelling the holy land
Opening telegrams

Torture comes and torture goes
Knights who'd give you anything
They bear the cross of Coeur de Leon
Salvation for the mirror blind

But if you pray
all your sins are hooked upon the sky
Pray and the heathen lie will disappear
Prayers they hide
the saddest view
(Believing the strangest things,
loving the alien)

And your prayers they break the sky in two
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)

You pray til the break of dawn
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)

And you'll believe you're loving the alien
(Believing the strangest things, loving the alien)

Thinking of a different time
Palestine a modern problem
Bounty and your wealth in land
Terror in a best laid plan

Watching them come and go
Tomorrows and the yesterdays
Christians and the unbelievers
Hanging by the cross and nail


Oh, this is much better than being a pirate!

Whenever I think of David Bowie, I think of this one movie he was in, the Labyrinth.  It's one of my favorite movies, and I must admit, I get made fun of all the time for it!  My one friend in particular thinks that David Bowie (in that movie) is one of the most hilarious things she's ever seen!

Realizing that roberts rarely reveals his real role, I am reluctantly forced to recommend that we rectify this refusal. It is regrettable that he  reinvents himself with religious regularity, thus repressing any real resemblance. I am resolved to resort to revenge. I revoke all recent refined, reasonable or remotely romantic retorts, regardless of recrimination. I shall rebuke, rebuff and reprimand this recalcitrant recluse, until he reels with remorse.
Reflect, roberts! Renounce your replicas and replacements!

Evening l****s,

First, a big thankyou to Alan, without whose timely intervention I would not be here this evening...I locked myself out...entirely due to user incompetence.

Second, I would like to apologise for my tardiness...when I saw all the postings I thought I better go back and get my hardhat, and change personae. I was going to do a lovely little Orlando Bloom impersonation (very tasteful); however, that will have to wait. In the meantime...is it a bird? is it a plane? no its....

Thirdly, I would again like to apologise for my derisive and insulting comments about Rajaf. I repeatedly lampooned his gorilla like features both directly, and by implication. Since then, I have done some research and must humbly confess there is no real likeness.

Nothing wrong with wishful thinking at all, roberts. I've known many a dreamer -- but most live in the dreamworld, because it's so seductive. Often, though, it's all they do. A fine line, to be sure.

We have a vehicle maintenance department where I work, T ... can you come and work with me, please, what fun we'd have!!  Actually, they mainly restore old railway coaches but I'm sure you'd be up to the job and there are a lot of macho men doing manly things too ... just your cup of tea, T.

Both or either would be an improvement!  Come on, it's about time you told us all about yourself ... you must answer the following questions or risk being severely punished:

(a)  How old are you?
(b)  Where do you live?
(c)  Are you married or otherwise?
(d)  What is your job?
(e)  What are your hobbies?

Come on, you can do it ... and no fabrication of the truth!  >:D

Post by: Linda on September 15, 2007, 12:21:49 AM
It's like getting blood out of a stone .... not bovvered now!  Anway, here are some safe and uninteresting questions:

Do you prefer cats or dogs?
Do you prefer red or white wine?
Do you prefer blondes or brunettes?
Do you prefer coffee or tea?
Do you like tennis?
Who are your favourite singers/bands?
What is your star sign?

I'm sure you can answer those questions ... us hags have nothing to hide, unlike you, and would be prepared to answer any question posed to us ... 'cos we are honest, open and upfront!  >:D

How about...
Boobs or bums?
Oil or cream?
Topless or bikinied?
Lights on or off?
Cold or hot?
Pleasure or pain?
S or M?
With or without?
1 or 2?
Cream or syrup?
18 or XXX ?

Are they more like the kind of  interesting type of question you had in mind roberts?

Who on earth wants to know what toothpaste he uses, or what brand of bog roll he buys, or what car he drives???

I want to get right down to the nitty gritty, and find out the juicy stuff....
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on September 15, 2007, 11:55:55 AM

Alright then...let's get these out of the way...working backwards:

Who on earth wants to know what toothpaste he uses (Colgate), or what brand of bog roll he buys (Sorbent - 3 ply, I've had bad experiences with 2 ply), or what car he drives (Lexus, but I'm just the driver).

Boobs or bums? Both.
Oil or cream? Oh, cream - definitely.
Topless or bikinied? Bikinied (remember I have ex ray vision!).
Lights on or off? On. I sometimes need to refer to the manual.
Cold or hot? Cold, then hot, then cold, then hot again...then, I'm pretty much done.
Pleasure or pain? Pleasure, then pain, then its your turn.
S or M? Smarties.
With or without? With, and can I have more?
1 or 2? 1. No, 2. Is there a third option?
Cream or syrup? Cream...I thought I covered this.
18 or XXX ? Whatever is legal.

Right here's my question...what the heck are we spending hours upon hours between us sitting in front of an inanimate object, typing to people we'll never meet, about things that don't matter - is 42 really the answer to everything?

Its simply a question - I don't have the answer.

Right then, I saved the world from the dreaded 'anon' for at least 24 hours; it's an absolutely cracking day outside, and I'm into it...up, up, and away...roberts out.

Hello Roberts, et al-

Welcome to the post, Roberts.  From reading the posts, I can see that you score highly on a regular basis.  I have yet to get the little flowers by my name. I am always amazed when I push the solution the following day the couple of obvious words I missed.  I then go bang my head against the wall and try again.

I don't play the challenge game, because everyone would see my abysmal hit rate. 

I enjoy playing, however, and compete regularly with the teacher who works just opposite me. There are four players at my school (two per team) and we always have a great deal of fun competing with each other.  And there are far less edifying ways to spend time in front of a computer, so Alan, thanks very much indeed for your efforts.  It's really very cool.  My mom back in Florida turned me onto this site, and I have family members scattered throughout the US that I see on the scoreboard. 

Take good care, one and all.....

Jay
(jaythailand)

Thanks Jay,

Yes, its easy to miss the most obvious of words...I do it all the time.

Go ahead play the challenge game...who cares if people see your 'abysmal' hit rate. It can't be any worse than mine!

I'm constantly amazed at my ability to 'make up' new words. I also enjoy playing. It's a distraction...almost a form of addiction.

 ;D

Not much time today ... been out, come back in and going out again but will catch up with you tomorrow when I will more than likely have the house to myself for several hours ... absolute bliss!  >:D

Please Hags,
Do not be worried...it was merely an observation....
I don't like 2 ply either, and use Colgate....
Smarties are my favourite....
Lights on....because when i wrote the 'manual' it was intended to be used regularly..if only to have a laugh at the pictures!!!

Bikinied....generally it's not pretty without....
Etc etc....

But if the meeting is still on shall i bring some snacks....???

I'm still getting over the reappearance of Mum yesterday.

Tell you who I really admire though (present company included of course) - young 'Douglas', down the other end of the ladder.

Day in, day out this guy comes in, one word, nine letters, good night.

I can't believe you just quoted that song, T ! I thought it was only a hit in Australia, where it was played ad nauseam. Obviously it travelled.......

It brought back so many memories that I had to Google it to find all the lyrics. All together now.......

Ah-lo, I'm-a Guiseppe I got-a something special-a for you
Ready, uno, two, tray, quatro
When I was a boy just about-a eighth-a grade
Mama used to say don't-a stay out-a late
With the bad-a boys, always shoot-a pool,
Guiseppe gonna flunk-a school
Boy, it make-a me sick, one thing I gotta do
I can't-a git-a no kicks, always got to follow rules
Boy, it make-a me sick just to make the lousy bucks
Got to feel like a fool --
And the mama used to say alla time
What's-a matta you, hey, got-a no respect
What do you tink you do, why you look-a so sad
It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice place
Ah, shaddup-a you face --
That's-a my mama, can-a remember
(Big accordion solo)
Soon-a come a day, gonna be a big-a star
Then-a make-a TV shows and the movies, get-a myself a brand new car
But, Still I be myself, I don't-a want to change a ting
Still-a dance and-a sing --\I think about the mama, she used to say
Whats-a matta you, hey, got-a no respect
What do you tink you do, why you look-a so sad
It's-a not so bad, it's a nice-a place
Ah, shaddup-a you face
Hello, everybody at's out-a there in the radio and-a TV land
Did you know I had a big-a hit-a song in-a Italy wit dis?
'Shaddup-a Your Face'
I sing-a dis-a song, all of my friends applaud
They clap-a their hands, they make-a me feel-a so good
You ought to learn-a this-a song,
It's-a real-a simple - see
I sing, 'What's-a matta you', you sing, 'Hey'
Then I sing-a the rest and then at the end we can all sing,'Ah, shaddup-a you face'
O.K., let's-a try it, real good now
Uno, dos, tray, quatro
***Chorus***
***Chorus***

Come on, roberts, I want to see a shiny new persona when I rejoin the Forum ... you can do it, there are so many to choose from ... would you not like to be an astronaut/cowboy/doctor/politician/animal/vegetable or mineral today?  Cat got your tongue?  Intimidated by the wit and sophistication of the haghood?  >:D

Yo, roberts, it's nearly bedtime, eh?

How was your weekend -- a bit quiet on your end. Were you v. busy?

Hey -- I've noticed something a bit curious. Is it that you check the forum a lot, or is it really just a coincidence that when our great hag, LL, signs in, you just happen to be there nearly simultaneously?

Do you have a little alarm that goes off to alert you??  ;)

Cheers mate...

It's the first time in a very long time i've pipped you.

It's also the only the 2nd time i've played the standard game in a very long time...maybe i will a bit more....
Nah! i don't think so...i don't often have the time...

I'm good thanks... How about you?

Those words we miss are a real bugger aren't they.....
Never mind, you won't forget it next time the letters come up!!!

So what plans do you have for this saturday....it must be fairly early at the moment....???
Anything exciting???

Hey Linda...how's my favourite hag going?

My mummy caught me in a 'chat room', and confiscated my computer...she reckons you hags are a bunch of pedeophiles.

Who's in your piccy?
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Linda on October 16, 2007, 09:06:17 PM

I don't think i like being called  a paedophile...in fact i know i don't...
You tell your Mum she will definately get a good slap if she says anything as offensive as that again....

As to your pervy piccy roberts...there must, in all this holy earth, be a better role model for you than that.

And i thought i was your favourite hag....???

Some devilish dallying going on here me thinks.....You are sounding rather like a pimp roberts...

Personnally....i don't...i would rather have a picture there of Monica than him....her morals weren't much better, but at least she was 'up front' [literally] about it all.

I wonder if he will play with his little toy that he takes to bed with him every night, then claim that he wasn't playing with it at all.....or that what he was doing with it didn't constitute playing...???
Or maybe he will accuse someone else of playing with it...???

I suppose it is for you....i forget you are on the plus side....

So what exciting things have you been doing all day then?
And what exciting plans do you  have for tomorrow?

Until you popped up it was usually me crowding the top spot with Mum and Little Miss Smarty Pants...[who didn't really count because they were in the black...]

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on October 17, 2007, 09:36:57 PM
Arrhh..that's better!

Trophy at last.

Don't mind coming in second to 3B on hit rate...it's 'Mum', and the 'anon' team (the blackies) that I like to pip.

Exciting ?

T, I have a very suburban life, which fortunately I rather like. Nothing particularly exiciting to report.

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on October 23, 2007, 08:38:11 PM
Hey T...doin well, real well.

It's been a 'cracker' of a day...blue skies and a warm breeze.
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: technomc on October 23, 2007, 08:48:16 PM
That's nice to hear...
It's sunny here too, with lovely blue skies...but it's frigging freezing....well i am anyway!!!

So, what are you up to this week?

I am beginning to sound like an ignored parrot...
I ask the same chatty questions over and over...and never get a reply....

Perhaps i should just stop asking and mind my proverbial...
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on October 23, 2007, 08:53:31 PM
I'm sorry T, didn't intend to ignore you. I often don't read the posts...

This week...same as usual, nothing extraordinary...I have a day job.

How's you're week going...working your 'rear ends'?

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: technomc on October 23, 2007, 08:59:14 PM
No students this week roberts, so it's blissfully quiet. And very relaxed.....
so in between bits of paperwork, meetings, and sorting out and tidying up, and preparations etc etc....i am posting....

What do you do in your day job?
Let me guess - bingo caller?    NO..?

Snow plough operator at the airport? [ that was Roy's ideal job-he wanted to be the snow plough operator at Kingston airport in Jamaica!!]

Not that either then....

Exotic dancer for ladies that lunch..???

Give us a clue...i'm hopeless at guessing??
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on October 23, 2007, 09:02:44 PM
I guess you'll never guess...so I'll just tell you (this is just between you and me, right?)...

I'm a financial adviser...straight up...bingo caller gig didn't work out...but I'm good with numbers...so what the heck!
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: biggerbirdbrain on October 23, 2007, 09:04:16 PM
So, then, roberts ... how's the financial weather picture down there? Made anyone a millionaire lately?
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: technomc on October 23, 2007, 09:06:31 PM
I won't tell..
But i like the idea of the exotic dancing better, so i will tell everyone that's what you do...if they ask that is??

I could do with your services actually.....i won't say which...but hey!

Oh oH!! the secret is out ...
ssssHHHHhhhsssshhhhh threeb...it's a secret...

Post by: roberts on October 23, 2007, 09:08:17 PM

Post by: Linda on October 29, 2007, 09:51:04 PM
Hello roberts ... I am fine, thank you for asking.  You could always borrow the hag slogan to put on your pants ... Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here .... highly appropriate, I would imagine!  >:D

Hello T, hags - have a good Halloween?

New piccy is David's 'cheeky' side of course...

Your question sounds ominous...

However, I don't want you to be 'puzzled'...

So, before I say 'yeah or nay' you should give me a clue...what's the context?

Poor roberts, for the last month or so, your dogged determination, and a complete disregard of your percentage has put you at the top almost daily....with all manner of rosettes and trophies.
Occasionally one or other of us might have pipped you, but not often.
Then Mum reappeared .....to thwart you....

Now you have to suffer at the hands of another certain person.

I am sorry to tell you mate, you will not beat this other person....not unless you can do what they do as well as they do it....

My advice...just pretend this person is not there, and carry on regardless....
I admire your determination to get to the top.....keep it up, and don't be put off....

Post by: biggerbirdbrain on November 07, 2007, 10:55:55 PM
It's called, "One Special Pig". I hope you like it -- it's very sweet and touching!

  Mr. Palmire was a pretty good farmer for those parts and had chickens, cows, vegetables, the whole works. I'd occasionally help him with his farm chores to earn a bit of spending money.
One day, while forking hay out of his barn, I noticed a pig walk around the corner of the barn. Strange thing was, this pig had three artificial legs. He kind of hobbled along and stood over at the feed trough and had his fill.
When I was done with my work, I asked old Palmire about that pig. Why would anyone give a pig an artificial leg - especially three of them!
Mr. Palmire told me, 'Well, that's not no ordinary pig. That there pig is darn special. One day, my son Jimmy was swimming in the creek when he got stuck under some tree roots. That old pig jumped right in the water, dove under, yanked those roots out, and drug Jimmy to shore! Now, that's one special pig!'

I said, 'That's amazing. But, what about his artificial legs?'

'Well,' continued Mr. Palmire, 'another time, my daughter Tilly was walking down yonder through the trees when a stray cougar jumped out of a tree and was going to attack her. Just then, this here pig came tearing through the brush, barreled right into that cougar and chased him clean out of the valley. Most amazing thing I ever heard of a pig doing.'

'Wow!' I replied. 'But, what about the legs?'

'Just this spring, that pig saved my wife when she got locked in the smokehouse. That pig somehow got the door unlocked and got my wife out before she cooked to death.'

'Alright!', I interrupted, 'I realize that pig is special, but why does it have three artificial legs?'

'Well, a pig like that is just too special to eat all at once!'

It's been a long one, and i need my beauty sleep even if you don't...

I like the joke too...

So what are you up to this weekend?
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on November 17, 2007, 11:51:45 AM
I think I'm worded out as well...one short, as per usual...

This weekend...lots of not much at all.

It's been a difficult week, even for me, so I'm looking forward to reading the weekend papers, drinking coffee, and shuffling around in my spiderman jim jams until 3 pm...

I don't think your joke would work the other way around...although I must try it one day, and I'll let you know how I get on...

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on November 30, 2007, 10:25:50 PM
Hey Linda,

Don't you just love Friday's...it doesn't really matter what happens...its the anticipation.

Have a 21st b/day tom...it's been a little whiles since I last got an invite to one of those.

African theme apparently...giraffe Tshirt, big game hunter safari suit, gorilla outfit...I can't choose.

How's the job search going?
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Linda on November 30, 2007, 10:31:10 PM
How exciting for you, especially knowing your penchant for dressing up and taking on new personae!  I think you should choose the big game hunter outfit ... would look tres chic.

Job hunting is going slowly, not much about at this time of year.  Am doing a bit of private tuition in between languidly lounging!!  >:D
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on November 30, 2007, 10:40:43 PM
'languidly lounging'...I like that expression. I'm looking forward to doing some of that over the weekend.

Job hunting...have you ever thought of migrating to Oz?

Jobs aplenty, especially in Western Australia - what are you like at driving heavy earthmoving equipment?...pays 6 figures (that's sterling)

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Linda on November 30, 2007, 10:42:05 PM
Are you mad?!  I am v. afraid of deadly spiders and snakes and crocs ... none of which we have over here!  As to driving heavy earthmoving equipment ... would I not break my nails?!!  >:D
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on November 30, 2007, 10:47:51 PM
It's God's own country L

Sidekick, more like! 

I was thinking more along the lines of PA to David Bowie, Pete Doherty's agent, Rafa's physiotherapist, Jonny Depp's dresser ... that sort of thing would do me just fine!  Of course, if Michael Hutchence was still around, I would be quite willing to do anything for him for free!!  >:D

Roberts are there no Ozzy legends that you like the look of? You always seem to go Stateside or to the YUK for your heroes.
That is not very patriotic of you, now is it???

I hope you have a good time at your party. A 21st eh? Will you be the youngest one there? Are you allowed to stay up later at the weekends?

Have a good time, and behave.....  >:D

Well, off the top of my head how about;
The poet Banjo Patterson or Daniel Deniehy who did so much for getting land for the ordinary people of the country. Or Errol Flynn who swashbuckled his way round the world, or more recently Mel Gibson and Russel Crowe....
There must be sportsmen you could aspire to like Pat cash..
Or Singers and musicians....

I can't believe you can't think of any...
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: birdy on December 01, 2007, 01:29:22 PM
Hey, I thought Ned Kelly was the Robin Hood of Australia!  Just like Jesse James here! (stone killer that he was)

She had a 'Yummy mummy' then...into older woman are you?

I thought for a minute you meant Kylies mum...Now she really would be an older woman...and you would be a Toyboy.....

If you are refering to chocolate, yes i was. Only 1 1/2 cadbury's creme eggs....

'only 1.5 creme eggs'...T, you're weren't really trying then!

I had that many for breakfast...must have had 20 eggs over the weekend...I love chocolate - one of my last remaining vices. But of course that depends on what you include as 'vices'.

L...you're not 52? Get outta here...I love older women...

"People born in the Year of the Rat are noted for their charm and attraction for the opposite sex. They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful. They are most compatible with people born in the years of the Dragon, Monkey, and Ox."
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Linda on March 25, 2008, 10:12:49 PM
People born in the Year of the Monkey are the erratic geniuses of the cycle. Clever, skillful, and flexible, they are remarkably inventive and original and can solve the most difficult problems with ease. There are few fields in which Monkey people wouldn't be successful but they have a disconcerting habit of being too agreeable. They want to do things now, and if they cannot get started immediately, they become discouraged and sometimes leave their projects. Although good at making decisions, they tend to look down on others. Having common sense, Monkey people have a deep desire for knowledge and have excellent memories. Monkey people are strong willed but their anger cools quickly. They are most compatible with the Dragon and Rat.

Almost!!  >:D

Hey L,

Have you had your shower yet?

Saw Harry Connick Jnr this evening...funny guy

Now this 'titleless story' you girls are stringing together...way too many words. You know what a short...oh, look at that...

And as far as I can make out, all this tart gets up to is shopping, stuffing her face and moaning over the men in her life. Boring.

As Apollo, I suggested a good old fashioned orgy, only to have the b*** swan off out the pub ready to stuff her face again!

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Linda on March 28, 2008, 12:29:39 AM
Right then, if you can do any better, go ahead!

I am off for my shower now.  I will expect you to have added an interesting contribution to the story by the time I get back!!  Anyway, you should realize that us girls like nothing better than stuffing our faces, shopping and moaning about men ... orgies rarely feature, escept in the minds of sad, delusional men!!  >:D

Arhh, that's better...was it good for you too? I love doing that to 'anonaonon', and 'sueflies'. Just hope that 'Mum's' having an off day.

Now about this 'titless' story...the reason you're not getting any 'sad, delusional' men contributing is that there is no gratuitous sex, violence, or large machinery involved.
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: biggerbirdbrain on March 28, 2008, 12:54:57 AM
You are only partly correct, roberts.

There was a mustang, a brief mention of gratuitous sex early on, and the bloody encounter with the cat. Besides, nothing is preventing you from adding those contributions yourself.

As to the "constant champions" who get stars, trophies and rosettes with high scores and rapid ascents -- good point!

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on March 28, 2008, 01:03:56 AM
Hi 3B...how are you?

I must have missed those references...mind you, I start glazing over when the contribution is more than one paragraph long.

Title: Re: roberts
Post by: biggerbirdbrain on March 28, 2008, 01:05:42 AM
I understand you could have missed it with your brief attention span, roberts!  >:D

I'm fine -- whatchya up to today? Been to the beach today for some sunbathing, surfing, and casual ogling?  ;)
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: roberts on March 28, 2008, 01:09:59 AM
No sunbathing, surfing...school day. Besides, its been raining.

'Casual ogling'...3B...I'm a bloke, I don't necessarily need to go down to the beach for 'eye candy'. Anyways, sometimes it's better leaving the presents unwrapped and just use your imagination.

Oh yeah...but it's just I didn't figure you for working in a legal office. I mean, don't they do police checks?
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Linda on April 01, 2008, 10:39:15 PM
Cheeky git!  I have had several police checks in the past, as I worked with minors (not miners, roberts) and there was not one blemish on my good character ... so there!  >:D

What do you mean 'blameless life'?

And watch out for the partners...bunch of randy old bastards
Title: Re: roberts
Post by: Linda on April 01, 2008, 10:47:20 PM
I mean a blameless life, of course!

One of the partners is a woman so I don't think she'll be chasing me round the desk and the other is a nice man .... rare indeed and obviously an alien concept for you, mate!!  >:D

Don't be too sure...on either count.

I've come across enough lawyers in my time (this is another story)...and first appearances don't mean nothing.

Roberts, your hunt is admirable...but a waste of time and effort i fear. You will need her resources to equal her [or a better search engine more likely] but i am not going down that line of chat again.

Best of luck mate...


'don't mean nothing'   2 negatives make a positive don't they!!??
