A 1st for me - I'm going to thank folks ...

By OldER Mycroft ·
As some of you folk know, Sonja emailed me at some point in the last 10 Days, and her virus came straight down the ether to me... and I've been coughing and spluttering ever since. - Nice one Sonja!!

(She appears back on TROLOV, resplendent on what I've been assured (by TiggerTwo), is not self-assembly wooden flooring and I sit shivering in the candlelight of my poor little Scots bothy, watching her return to stardom on the - well... on the Nitrogen Triflouride screens that we all apparently favour these days).

A PLOP through my letter box this morning. Yeah! (Don't get much personal mail..) A Christmas Card - aye, the same handwriting as that old reprobate.

But it's NOT, it WASN'T, eh... it ISN'T - it's from TR! - I assume this is just another of my long, lonely steps into the world of the TRUE TR peer? Something that I have to take on the chin, just wait until it's MY turn <sob, sob>. Oh well... there's always next year when I can then say THANK YOU for my 2nd Christmas Card from TR.

In all honesty, it took me completely by surprise - and I REALLY do appreciate it!

Cheers Guys - and that other sex that I don't totally trust.

What is shocking

by jdclyde In reply to More specifically....

is that you would have to state that a female would be "fairly opinionated".... :0 ;\

Have you tried Bacardi's spiced rum? I think it is better than Captains.

When going for a "normal" rum, I like Bacari dark. Doesn't have the hard "bite" or turpentine aftertaste.

Question, does Captain Morgains make a NON spiced rum?

Of course

by JamesRL In reply to What is shocking

In Canada we can get a Captain Morgan's Gold, White, Dark Deluxe as well as spiced. But the brand has been popular here for decades, but only in the US since 1984.

Edited to Add:

Captain Morgans was founded by Seagrams a Canadian company which explains why it was so popular here. It was sold more recently to Diageo, same people who own Smirnoff, Johnny Walker, Guiness, Cuervo etc.

Other than email, they don't have my address. If they could track me down, maybe they should be sent out to find Osama; that's Osama, not Obama; we know where to find him

Obama; we know where to find him

isn't he hanging with his fellow evil Muslim buddies in an Afghan cave? Obama NOT Osama.

a government that can find a kid illegally popping his pimples anywhere in the world and yet a rich, powerful leader of Muslims and he's slippery as an eel.

Santa came!!

by Oz_Media In reply to A 1st for me - I'm going ...

I didn't see him, again, because he came while I was working, maybe next year.

I got home to find one tiny bill and a great big Merry Christmas, I mean "Joy for the Season", from TR.

Thanks guys and you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS too. Enjoy your holidays with your loved ones and watch that yule log on TV while listening to sickly sweet Christmas music.

If you are of a religion that doesn't celebrate "Christmas", sucks to be you, but Happy Holidays to you anyway.

tee hee hee! er,I mean HO! HO! HO!
