Do tell.

My experiences have been quite the opposite. Always friendly and good humoured. The only unpleasantness was the whole Geisha girl thing, but that was 16 years ago...


I think JC is winding us up. I've never encountered such a thing

I've seen some unpleasant Youtube footage from a northern event of people bitching about people who weren't present.

Tesco’s caff in Whitehaven.

That sounds kind of fun, converging on a small, low-profile place. What's the humblest JU ever, defined as a meeting of at least three BCB people with the intent of having a sociable jolly-up (rather than going to a concert)?


There have been three threesomes (oo-er missus) at my place, not counting Stalky the Paranoid Pooch (whose contribution never gets beyond a whole lot of wagging and licking) and Miss Thang, who managed to miss all of them: Rayge with Copehead and Deebank; with Polishgirl and Phil T: and yomp and Jumper K.

How jolly they were, given the attendees had to drive here, it was in the day, and I don't do booze, I can't say ;)

Yeah, that's par for the course at most JU's isn't it?

Loosely anything above the Trent.

Could just have been me and my webcam.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I nearly made it
I was having tea at 6 and going to the theatre to see Nine Night with my partner and I though I could squeeze in a quick visit but when I saw Mike wasn't going to be there and just about everyone else was turning up after 6I canned it.

I will turn up again some day.
