Incredibly important news announcement

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:31 pm

So I've spent the last week with edds, and last night I asked her to marry me and she said she would.

(Pause for applause)

So the plan now is for me to move to the UK, get me citizenship innit, jump on the dole and vote Labour fam.

So what do you think?

Congratulations to you both mate

Very happy for you both, happy days.

I am sure you can get a job, with one of the many media companies we have. (Be funny if that was the Daily Mail lol)  Laughing

Vote Labour? Not under Corbyn, surely?

Basketball

Or...

As an alternative to voting Labour,  Ben could always form his own political party..

Round up rhe dregs of some of those also-ran/'dead-in-the-water' Englische mobs such as the Greens, LibDems and UKIP --  and roll them together into a new melded 'centrist' group.

Imagine one 'broad church' alternative party where you could have Andy, Didge, sassy, Victor, nicko, Tommy and Eilzel in bed together  !          alien

Thank you to everyone for your best wishes.  

Saying yes was a no-brainer.  He’s my best mate and we’ve probably known for at least two years how we feel, despite the denials from us both - the amount of times we were “just good friends! -  and all it took to get where we are today.

Really appreciate your warmth and happiness for us both x


Syl said it best, as did many of my other friends too:

And just for fun, (and it is an astrology fun thing as I’m a Gemini and he’s a Sagittarius), this is actually pretty much how all of our debates go:

Things Go Wrong At The Gemini-Sagittarius Debate

MODERATOR: Thank you for joining us for the first in a series of debates for the leadership of the Zodiac. Tonight, Gemini and Sagittarius will discuss the issues. Sagittarius has won the coin toss --

SAGITTARIUS: Well, I do have the reputation for being lucky...

MOD: -- and will go first. Sag?

SAG: Thanks. A lot of people have complained that there is no real choice in this election. I'd like to take the time now to point out the many significant differences between myself and my opposing sign. First of all --

GEMINI: Bor-ing!

SAG: Beg your pardon?

GEM: You know, supposedly I have the reputation for being the yappy one. Two to one though says you've got ten minutes of material there about how you're all philosophical and stuff, and how I'm just "flighty."

SAG: Have you been reading my notes?

GEM: No, I just know you. I know how you can take one philosophical stance... whether you've really thought it through or not... and spin it into a long tale that sounds like it's all well thought out. But sometimes it isn't. And I'm calling you on it.

SAG: Listen, scatterbrain: you haven't thought out your positions well enough to call anyone on anything. I say you just catalogue data and then use that to argue against anyone who thinks differently from you.

GEM: And that's so different from you how, exactly?

SAG: I... you suck!

GEM: Yeah, well YOU suck!

MOD: Please, could we return to the debate please?

SAG: Who's the nimrod who hired Virgo to moderate this thing anyway?

GEM: Yeah. Virgo's kind of like us in a way, but they're so... Virgo-ish.

SAG: Yeah. They're that thing, that Virgo thing. They're so... they're like the intellectual hallway monitors of the Zodiac.

GEM: Good one, dude! (pauses) This debate sucks.

SAG: Yeah. Hey, wanna go drinking?

GEM: Sure, let's go. I'll drive.

SAG: No, I'll drive.

GEM: No, I'll drive!

SAG: No...

Now if life is just an old car
And love is just the wheels that keep it rollin'
Every engine needs a spark, yeah
And she's the fire that's kept me goin'

Like that old car, a love needs to be kept up,
And the wheels all need to be tightened, yeah
Keep that engine well oiled, an' always keep it prepped up,
Keep that fender shined and brightened.

Just a thought to add to ol' Eli's song.

There was a young maiden called Ed.
Who wanted to get Ben into bed.
But it just wasn't fair
just to have an affair.
So they both decided to get wed.

They drank whiskey all night
And the furthest they got was the bed

Ben stood on the burning deck
when all around had fled.
And once he'd put the fire out
He went to rescue Ed.

She was drifting in a leaky boat
after escaping from the fire.
But the boat would not long stay afloat
as the waves got higher and higher.

So, ripping off his sailor's shirt
our Ben dived o'er the side,
and swimming to the frightened Ed,
"Throw me a rope," he cried.

"And I will tow you to the ship
that is now safe and sound.
And we will sail the seven seas
and let our love abound."

Then Ed picked up the coil of rope
that lay in the sinking boat;
and threw it to Ben who, by then
could hardly stay afloat.

He caught it with a manly grip,
then looked at it in fear.
"You should have kept one bloody end
before chucking the other here!"


Moral of this story, Eds: Now you've hooked a good man - for Christ's sake don't let go of the line!

Love and warmest thoughts to you both.

Edds (sorry honey-pie, nearly blew your cover there) read these over the phone to me today when I was taking one of my many breaks at work. They're fantastic, and I'm so flattered! And just when she and I were talking about what a bunch of assholes every last one of you is.

Well, I'm coming to England, at least for the beginning. I guess I'm going to have to get used to not being able to spread my arms out -- y'all really should have planned things to give yourselves a bit more elbow room! Laughing

We used to have a chunk of France just across the Channel, but the buggers wanted it back.

I wouldn't mind getting some of France back; their wine is superb and they do make very good cheese.

Not so sure about America.....

Not so sure about America.....

California wine is far superior. Perhaps you need to expand your world. Wink

I already have, including a visit to the Inglenook winery in Napa Valley some years ago. Some award winning wines are even made in the UK.

Many wine producing regions are superior to the French. It's my belief that the French fields are played out.

Right now I would say not only are the California grapes better than the French, but the fields of Adelaide, and some in Turkey, are also producing superior wines. The French wine industry is living on name solely.

Adelaide and the Yarra Valley aren't the only wine regions in Oz...

The Hunter Valley (Pokolbin/Lovedale, Broke, Jerry's Plains..), Mudgee, and even Orange/Mt. Canobalas could all give those French a run for their money..

With climate change gradually changing the growing conditions, some of the commercial wineries here are already buying land in cooler regions down around Tasmania and Victoria --  so that some of those may well become the domjnant Aussie wine regions before the end of the century.

There are also some emerging wine regions in Chile and Argentina as well, that maybe shouldn't be dismissed too quickly..
