While talking about the Khaleesi, I have to give Emilia Clarke amazing credit as an actress, If you see a picture of Emilia or an interview with her and then see her character in Game of Thrones it is almost impossible to associate the two, which I regard as the real skill of an actor/actress. Contrast John Wayne or Clint Eastwood who are pretty much always John Wayne or Clint Eastwood whichever character they are supposedly playing.
Lloyd, two bowls of spirit o' the mare for me and my bloodrider. Cheers, Coach. Long live the Stormborn!

Actually, I've always had a certain amount of admiration for the Mongols of Ghenghiz Khan's time on which presumably the Dothraki were based. The Khan himself is a much more interesting character than the average despot.

Long live the Stormborn! :bthumbup:

Have you seen Swift, Zebs, Frides and Shady lately? Been at this since the 26th. Someone should probably step in.

I know she should be licking the salt off the back of her hand, slamming the glass on the bar before doing the shot then sucking on a slice of lemon .. or if my old flatmate was there, a tequila stuntman: snort a line of salt off the bar, do the usual with the drink then I squeeze a slice of lemon in your eye .. amateurs.

Join the club, 4 weeks and counting. Infliximab may be great for the Crohn’s but it completely messes up your immune system.
Not quite flu but a shit of a heavy cold and sore throat.
I'm on beta blockers at the moment Tempo, not as bad as the last meds, these ones stop adrenaline being produced apparently so they'll slow my heart rate down and they seem to be working on that level although they're making me dizzy and un coordinated .. sweating, weird dreams and I'm sleeping in bursts of 2 hours at a time twice a day .. but my mood's levelled out .. can't wait until the side effects go away so I can go back to work mate. Good luck with yours man .. have an inappropriate tune ..

It has not only robbed me of my appetite but also my hankering for alcohol. Hence I have just had the most abstinent Christmas since the beginning of time. Bored!
I'm at the same level .. apart from the alcohol part ..

I'm considering painting a cell phone sized and shaped bit of wood black then leaning next to a co worker and going "GAH! why does this keep happening!?" .. then they'll look up from their cell phone to help me out because I'm old and stupid .. I'll hand it over but I've just hand painted on it:

Facebook
kitten videos
porn
how many likes have I got?

.. then I could just gently whisper " .. so can you do some fucking work instead?"

It's a dream that will probably never happen .. good thing I'm on the beta blockers to be honest ..

A lot of women nowadays have too much makeup on, i feel sorry for men, they go to bed with a princess and wake up to a troll, everything seems fake
That's more likely down to booze than make up.

There's also the phenomenon where women actually put on so much make up that they make them themselves less attractive, like pantomime dames, this is often compounded by applying so much fake tan that it looks like blackface. Bizarre.

Hogmanay trvia...

What is this song:

- It was written by someone who had a massive hit with his own band

- It was written for Elvis Presley, however, Elvis never sang this song

- It became a smash disco hit for a Scottish performer.
