This is a question Accidental innuendo

Freddy Woo writes, "A woman I used to work with once walked into a car workshop to get her windscreen replaced, and uttered the immortal line, "Have you seen the size of my crack?"

What innuendos have you accidentally walked into? Are you a 1970s Carry On film character?

Night Kaol

I always feel mildly voyeuristic
reading these late night conversations

interesting though

good that new people are coming out of the woodwork to speak too


anyone else here yet?

Morning, Vipros
I was just skimming through last night's minutes too.

How's you this fine morning?
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 8:30, closed)
felt a bit rough earlier, but am getting better fortunately

got a lot of tedious GIS work to be doing today for my model...dull

also, I've been worked up into a frenzy of terry-wogan-related hatred this morning by someone's post further down.

how are you today?
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 8:33, closed)
Not bad at all
Except for the fact that I'm at work. But then, there's the salary at the end of it, which is handy.

I made an arse of the date for the Edinburgh bash. I've gazzed a few people to say so and am now waiting for some flaming.

*dons asbestos helmet*

I feel the same
work does get in the way of my life quite badly

you put the wrong date down?

I'm sure the flaming won't be too bad. it's the disappointment that will be hardest to bear

The problem was that ancrenne suggested March. But I'm busy all of March, and said "what about 4th April - I'm free then".

And so the provisional bash date was set, after a bit of grumbling about me being difficult :-)

But it turns out I got my dates mixed up and I'm not free on the 4th - it's the following weekend that I have available.


It's far enough in advance that it shouldn't make a difference, but I can see a bit of flak coming my way today!

I'm sure they will be understanding
it is a long way in the future!

There's enough time to have a baby before then. Even if it's not conceived for a week or three yet!

Not that I've any plans in that area!
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 8:52, closed)
as you have no plans
then that is rather a strange comparison to draw...

the mind works in mysterious ways

had an argument with my other half last night because apparently I've done a complete u-turn regarding some interior design issues in our house.

I have wracked my brains and I absolutely cannot remember having said that I really hated floating shelves....

I don't hate them now, and nothing has changed as far as I'm concerned.

You bastard scumbag K2k6!
*shakes fist*

Nah, there's no point being angry with you...

I'm just disappointed...
*shakes head slowly*

EDIT: So... If I work my magic at the bash tomorrow, I could have a lovely child to bring to Scotland?

Morning gents
Hows things this morning?

Pretty fuckin' good my boy.
No work today?
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:31, closed)
I'm grand
No work today, off to go flat hunting for next year. One of the guys I'm going to live with went scouting yesterday and found a few good ones, so hopefully will have somewhere by the end of today.
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:34, closed)
Good luck with that!
What kinda price is renting a flat there, if you don't mind me asking?
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:36, closed)
morning chaps
you're sounding suprisingly chipper this morning Kaol

good night's sleep perhaps?
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:38, closed)
Yes indeed!
I slept rather well!
*grins happily*

Good morning all
how the devil are my favourite b3tans today?
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:40, closed)
We're looking at between £650 and £700
That's for a three bedroom, which isn't too bad I don't think.
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:40, closed)
*jaw hits the floor*

For a three bed?

I've got to get out of Surrey.
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:41, closed)
I'm not much of a sleeper myself. probably my own fault though, and the (suspected) cause has become the cure.

where are you PoD? that seems pretty cheap compared to here!

it's certainly cheaper than my mortgage by quite a bit
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:42, closed)
That's split between three?
If so then... *cries*
I hate Surrey, so so so much.

'Ning Burt!

Ning special K'!
I'm rapidly going off this over-priced haven for the elderly, shame I can't abandon my daughter.

how much does stuff cost in surrey?
people go on about Exeter being expensive, but I reckon it's not toooo bad

When I was at uni
I was in a rented house. Worst place ever, it leaked, there were ants, the plumbing was bad, really dirty, and backed onto the main train line to London.

It was a four person house. It was £325 per person, per month. Not including bills.

That was the cheapest house we could find.

fuck me
the rent in my student house in cardiff was £182 pppm
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:50, closed)
Yes, that will be split between 3
So it works out nice and not expensive. Hopefully it is nice, which I have been told it is.

Plus it's well near an underground station, so can get in to uni/city centre easily.

Knew I could count on your classic response!

I'm sorting it out with the ladies. (Oo-er)

I'm off to w**k now for a bit.

(Not wank, I mean the other, unspeakable, one).
(, Wed 18 Jun 2008, 9:56, closed)
Good work on that then!
Yeah, Surrey was arse-rapingly expensive.
Thus I have rubbish student debts now.
And I had to work my arse of during the holidays to have enough money to go back each term...

At least I got a useful degree at the end of it...

*chokes on my own bitterness*
