I’ve only been to three. I lost my glasses, my reputation and my virginity.

To be fair, you immediately acquired a different reputation.

Jolly Ups are the preserve of the first generation of BCBers.

How many posters who joined after the ex-Mojo crew had disappeared off to Facebook in the early 2010’s attend Jollys?

How many of the Jolly Uppers actually chip in on BCB these days?

Not true - everyone is invited and anyone would be made welcome. You know I've been urging you to get your arse into gear for ages.

Gosh, I hadn't realised that a Great Migration was perceived to have happened. Seems a bit of a revisionist viewpoint.

How many of the Jolly Uppers actually chip in on BCB these days?


Moddie, Coan, Me, Slider, Diamond Dog, Belle, Quaco, Harv, Hatz, Minnie, Baron, Neige, Carlsson, pb, sloop, Muskrat, Bleep, Tom Waites for No-one, MacAndy, Gradual, Some others I've forgotten, no doubt.

It's true that few post as regularly as they used to but it's probably a lot to do with being jaded by retreading old ground (and I'd be lying if I said it wasn't partly to do with a weariness of dickheadery which is much easier to filter out on FB).

Yes, that probably reads a little misleadingly, in retrospect. :?

I'd still like to meet Griff, Prof, Nikki and Pete, so perhaps I should go to another one. But only if they guarantee to turn up
