Au contraire, seany. I would rather spend time with my kids, even the violent one, than spend time with the goons I work with. They are nearly all tw*ts.

It is more my pride and manliness that keeps me from pulling sickies. You wouldn't understand.

I quite enjoy spending time with kids in a non-saville-esque way. On Sunday I was dressing up as different monsters in order to scare my niece. She kept guessing it was me so I wrapped myself up in toilet roll and came downstairs as a mummy which made her cry. Taught the little sh1t not to be too smart.

You should have said, I'm sure Galted and myself would happily have met up for a pint of Stout.

So long as TopHat doesn't get wind of it and try to tag along.

Wouldn't it be funny if we didn't get along and it turned into a glass-in-the-face-fest?

Or, even better, if we mugged him?  Imagine trying to explain to the police that you were robbed by two men you met on the internet.

Not sure I like where this is going...........

For the love of God, Gia, it was "little stalkerish w*nker", not "stalkerish little w*nker". I don't know how many times I have to keep pointing this out.

Having said that, c_s has definitely taken my crown on that front. He is all over TopHat like a cheap suit.

That is what most of his previous 9000 odd posts have been about.

I was emailed this today. Could be Toppy:

"I'm 83 and I'm Tired"

I'm 83. Except for brief period in the 50's when I was doing my National Service, I've worked hard since I was 17. Except for some serious health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn't call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I'm tired. Very tired.

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage r*** victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to.

I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK , America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I'm really tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

I'm also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20's be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.
Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I'm on the way out and not on the way in.

Most have been spent bickering with Az, Truss & Dior.

The vehicle for that bickering, whether it be racism, mayweather huthuggery or patronising stupidity, is not particularly telling.

Morrisons at lunch so I picked up 6 southern fried chicken pieces with a portion of wedges. Wedges a bit underdone and under seasoned. I grabbed a packet of opal fruits from the canteen which have gone down well though.

Sean is a little bit racist so I wouldn't be surprised. He doesn't like bummers either.

Forgot to mention that I went to the Xmas parade when I was in Jersey. It started at 5.20 Sunday evening and was quite lovely. Some of the kids involved were really little and it would have been quite funny to see one or two falling off their float but one of the girls who was walking between the floats dropped her hat which more than made up for it.

Getting wound up over the naming or rebranding of confectionary is beneath me. The best I can manage at even my most grumpy is mild indifference.

Sean is a little bit racist so I wouldn't be surprised.  He doesn't like bummers either.

Tongue in cheek. I was hoping to get a response from the PC brigade.

I didn't say I don't like bummers. I don't know any apart from a guy at work who invited me out for a drink and hasn't spoken to me since. Oh and there was also one who ran the local pub when I lived in Guildford - he was alright but I didn't like it when he spoke or got excited about something.

Very frequently it is to bring them in line with what they are called in other countries. Saves the manufacturer money on both marketing and packaging.

Not a particularly interesting answer but true none the less.

That says more about your insecurities than anything else.

I was a bit nervous so asked some mates as to how I should approach it. They said I should speak about my missus which I did (a lot). I also may have referred to 'not knowing any of his sort' which may mistakenly have been taken as offensive.

It was alright though, I was quite surpised that he drank bitter.

What were you expecting, him to drink a Cinzano whilst discussing show tunes and Dusty Springfield?

Once asked a annoyingly camp gay guy (friend of a friend at the time), in the most politically correct and sensitive way imaginable, why he spoke with a funny twang and had he always spoken like that or was it a recently acquired trait.

He flipped right out. Prissy Tinkywinky.

One of my best mates now is gay and he seems to manage speaking normally perfectly fine without having to put on some silly voice.

It would be interesting to monitor if Gareth Thomas's voice changes now he's 'come out' and hangs out with Christian Louboutin.

Can we avoid use of terms such as bummer, don't want to be all heavy handed mod round here but we would not tolerate such a term if it referred to someone's ethnicity so no reason it should be permitted in regard to sexuality.

Yeah but you got told off for it. Not me.

And I was joking, you are being offensive. And you're nearly the same age as me, although I am light years ahead in charm, wit, intelligence and all round popularity.

No I'm not. I wouldn't have gone for a drink if I had a problem with the way he lives his life. I like all people, sometimes even the welsh.
