Who, then?

I can only think of Samoan and Ray - and I'm not even sure neither of them have met up with anyone.

No - Ray met up with some of you recently, didn't he?

I've been to two Jolly-ups in London and met the usual crew – including Moddie, so I'm sure he hasn't got me in mind – plus Minnie and Baron. Met mp3p0 at a record fair; Phil T, Pippa and Deebank have visited me here, and of course Thang-y and Hipster Dawg live here.

Copehead did turn up to one briefly..
You could also add to those Samoan, Geezee, Phil T, Clive Gash, Markus. Probably a good half of the American posters haven't been to a jolly.

I was headed to one The Fish organised in Brighton years ago, but didn't go in the end.
My mrs didn't want to come and our kids were tots then so it didn't pan out. She was very concerned that I'd be sold in to slavery or something :lol:

I have had lunch chez Ray which was a pleasure. I met Hipster Dawg of course but not Thang-y.

I'd still be up for a JUOTWC (West Country).
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

I'd happily have a pint or three with any of you but I find that the dynamic of Jolly Ups, and parties in general, doesn't really work for me and I always end up on the periphery drinking too quickly and then going home early.

Big international trips aren't really in my near future sadly, but if any of you jetsetting lot have a stopover in HK do let us know. I know some great chickens feet and stinky tofu places.

Jeemo has been to loads. One of his best moments was ejecting a mad woman from the 13th Note in Glasgow after she threatened to get the IRA on to him.

I've met Samoan, and Phil T was certainly at some early ones. Not posting here any more anyway (I believe...)

That leaves Geezee and Gash. And Gash is an alias.

An alias wrapped in an enigma.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.
