  1. That moment when you realise you don’t have it in your heart not to stay up for at

    I know your sort, a. You'd have me on a bonfire in a heartbeat. :-(

    Yes. I'd have quite liked to have seen Hoover in a dress. It would be very amusing.

    I've seen bits. Mexican food in Baja and Southern California was actually a revelation to me, since it was quite different to Tex/Mex shīte. I became quite addicted to fish tacos.

    Oh, no. The ingredients are so disparate that doing that would feel like having two separate meals. I have to eat them together for it to make any sense.

    His (and his brother's) relations with the FBI were even worse. J Edgar - like yourself - hated papists. Particularly ones who couldn't keep it in their trousers.

    I've no idea, actually. I should give it some thought.

    How do you eat your sketti and veal? I find I have to chop up the milanese, then twist a bit of sketti and then spear the meat with the end...

    I don't know what it is lefties see in JFK, tbh. He was the son of a plutocrat Nazi sympathiser, had a remarkably aggressive (albeit half-arsed) foreign policy - including getting the US embroiled in...

    I remember us losing to West Ham in 1980 and feeling that this event was in direct contravention of the way the universe was supposed to operate.

    Oh, sure. We were going to leave anyway. The disastrous haste with which we did so was dictated by the yanks, though.

    I had a friend from Luton at University who mocked me for three years for that game. I was quite resentful until I visited Luton and realised that since the poor chap had suffered that, he deserved...

    Because the Americans had us by the balls and were squeezing to ensure we dismantled the empire as quickly as humanly possible.

    Cash in Hand, eh? So you were stealing from HMRC while using our amenities? :-(

    Of course it was all fomented by the Russians*.

    Hmmm. Looked at from another perspective, we were the only thing that stopped them slaughtering one another for 200 years.

    There is every chance, of course, that this will simply mean that house prices increase accordingly.

    It's probably considered problematic to call it a mutiny these days. We probably have to call it The First War of Indian Independence or something equally silly. Mind you, as far as I'm aware, it's...

    Oh, yes. He jumped on him at the train station :hehe: It all sounded most undignified.

    It was British and Anglo-Irish officers who were signalling their refusal to put down the UVF's effective insurrection in the north, p. Which was a bit treasonous of them, but sort of understandable.

    We actually should have won it in 15/16 and simply bottled it when we saw the finish line. That was why it was probably the most upset I've been by an overall Arsenal season. The fact that we picked...

    I imagine his French accent is execrable. His English one's bad enough, after all.

    What's wrong with that? I dreaded North London Derbies even when we were good. Now that we're average and Spurs are OK, they're horrible.
