With a son of forty she should look in the middle fifties at least.

Maybe there are two of her ? The real one and one who only comes out for photo shoots.

What the devil's going on in this place nowadays then?

Is everyone still not posting photos of themselves? Is it still full of racists and misogynists? Or has it calmed down a bit?

(I'm not racist, but.......these black fellas really need to tone it down a bit! Jeez.)

And is anyone actually talking about Fortean stuff?

It was like the blinking Daily Mail the last time I was here! Except with fewer UFOs!

Here's me in Great Yarmouth pretending to be Captain Ahab. I broke an arcade machine trying to get a bloody elephant while dressed as Ahab. Half an hour I was, getting that elephant. Just like Ahab chasing that whale. Except at least when Ahab caught it, he wasn't chucked out of a casino by a bouncer...

Sometimes some good quality Fortean stuff manages to get posted here, the mods also wisely closed down the political correctness gone mad and politics stuff so it's a lot less like the daily mail these days .. I still mostly just post purile crap, Sharon Hill still won't buy into 99% of weird crap, Skargy still laughs when men gets genital injuries .. erm .. it's about the same as you remember it.

.. so what happened in the casino? ..

An elephant dressed as Ahab? The mind doth boggle. Anyway, good to see you back, to see you back, good.

It's been a hell of a decade (not in a good way).
I hear ya, and echo the lament (you know why). January promises positive developments for me. Can't speak for anyone else, but it'll be about fucken time. Shall we toast the end of this eon on NYE at The Troll's Head English pub? The Guinness is second to many, yet drinkable after the first ten or so.

Wishing all (and sundry) a fixed up 2020.

Sláinte mhaith.

I'd love to see how you both hold up after a few dozen (let's say 36) bottles of soju each!
Sorry I missed that, James(es).
Soju - ? Hahaha nonono. Trick for young players, that gasoline. Kicks you in the back of the face when you think you're bulletproof. Never again since 1999.
He was a number of years ago.

Wish we'd managed a hike and a few dozen drinks together!
It's inevitable, matey. I shall return. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorow, but someday. We'll hit the 'Won and then be up at dawn to scale Namsan.

Not sure why but I get a distinct "International jewel thief/cat burglar with suave socialite alter ego currently planning the heist of the century at a max-security casino in Monte Carlo but Clouseau is on the case" vibe from those pics.

You have a kind face :) .. and a nice cheeky smile and cheek bones one could shave with and I also usually twist my shoulder straps so you are definitely an international diamond thief .. Tribble called it correctly ..
