This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit

"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."

........ James Cook

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir

"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch

"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."

Having a man working in my bedroom is one of them
9th May 2006, 10:12   | tags:,

Dhamaka NLI says:

's OK Hotdog, I need this work done

and he's a little young, even for me...

9th May 2006, 10:16

nige says:

yeah yeah.

9th May 2006, 10:17

Geodyne says:

Oh my.

We should all be so lucky.

9th May 2006, 10:18

Dhamaka NLI says:

Geo, any time you wanna come and do some decoration, just let me know....

(edit) You know, this is going to run my blog cred, but I don't actually remember the last time a man was in this room..

9th May 2006, 10:19

Uber_Spy says:

Have you offered him tea & biscuits while fluttering your eyelashes??

9th May 2006, 10:28

nige says:

i think your record is still intact, D. that chap's got a fair few years 'til he hits puberty :P

9th May 2006, 10:33

Dhamaka NLI says:

Uber - and stop him working? I'm enjoying the view!

nige - I don't think he'd be happy to hear that

9th May 2006, 10:37

Uber_Spy says:

He has a rather round bum. Or is that just his overalls??

9th May 2006, 10:42

Dhamaka still NLI says:

sadly not

9th May 2006, 10:42

Dhamaka Still NLI says:

oops - he's on the rooftop garden now and has just stripped... I was wrong he looks very fit...

:-)

(edit) sadly though he has put the overalls back on again

9th May 2006, 10:49

nige says:

you gals scare me somewhat...

9th May 2006, 11:04

Uber_Spy says:

I think its time to lure him back inside and whack on your central heating full blast...YES!!!

9th May 2006, 11:11

Dhamaka says:

Uber_ I think it's time I tell you that he works for my brother, so it wouldn't be very fair...

tempting though...

nige - you love it really, that's why you keep coming back!

9th May 2006, 12:04

i agree with nige, you worry me AND he looks very young id say 15 but that might just be the photo

9th May 2006, 12:06

nige says:

what can i say...your site is *sticky* haha.

9th May 2006, 12:07

Geodyne says:

Oh my, stripping and everything...

I *am* a dab hand at decoration, you know.

9th May 2006, 12:09

Dhamaka says:

*invites Geo..

and who shall we select as our first victim Geodyne..

Uber - you feel like decorating too?

9th May 2006, 12:12

Geodyne says:

Would that be decorating or being decorated?

9th May 2006, 12:21

Dhamaka says:

your choice..

I guess it depends on the quality of our victims - I mean assistants

9th May 2006, 12:26

Uber_Spy says:

You know D...I *do* in fact feel like decorating! Funny that...I think we should hold a casting for potential decorating assistants aged 18-35...what say you??

9th May 2006, 13:10

Geodyne says:

*Will so be in that*

D, you find the victim...er, assistant, I'll bring the paintbrush.

9th May 2006, 13:18

Uber_Spy says:

What can I bring?
Edit: Plastic Sheeting? Matchings overalls? Wine?? Hmmm...

9th May 2006, 13:28

nige says:

WARNING ALL MEN:
Stay Away From Dhamaka, Uber & Geo - they are in Devour Mode.

9th May 2006, 13:33

Uber_Spy says:

LOL!!! Oh Nige. I'm sure most men secretly relish the novelty of feeling like a piece of meat every so often...?? Come on! You love it!!

9th May 2006, 13:46

Twiglet says:

Send him over when you've finished D, I could use a little "decorating" myself1

9th May 2006, 13:53

your all being very naughty ladies!

9th May 2006, 13:57

nige says:

do we need to include you in all of this, Twiglet? Charlie's Angels just turned into Sex & The City. no more please, otherwise i'll have to rename you Girls Aloud.

9th May 2006, 14:03

Dhamaka NLI because I can't resist this says:

Uber, Geo, Twiglet - you've a deal, I'll start the preliminary recruitment tonight, we can get it down to a shortlist via email and then.....

Hmmm.. bmal, how old are you...

9th May 2006, 14:04

not telling! but in the age group that was mentioned!

9th May 2006, 14:06

Dhamaka says:

what about you nige..

9th May 2006, 14:06

nige says:

too old for you gals - early 30's. i figured this one topped out at 20yrs old anyway, which is why i didnt get *too* excited.

i am a voyeur however - happy to moblog the whole affair...

9th May 2006, 14:11

oh well if your stopping at 20 im out

9th May 2006, 14:12

Spike says:

Bmal is the same age as my good seld!

9th May 2006, 14:14

Dhamaka says:

hehehe

and you don't mind risking a few bombs, do you Spike....

9th May 2006, 14:15

Spike says:

of course not, i blame my uncaring youth!

9th May 2006, 14:15

Uber_Spy says:

*rolls on floor clutching sides - Nige, that (edit - earlier) comment was brilliant...

9th May 2006, 14:16

i may be the same age as you spike but if the age limit is 20 as per niges predictions we are too old for this 'decorating' experiance

9th May 2006, 14:18

Dhamaka says:

not too old for me Nige, and I was going to suggest we string you and bmal up for the view..

9th May 2006, 14:18

now hang on!

9th May 2006, 14:19

Spike says:

'decorating' is that what you call it now!

9th May 2006, 14:20

Dhamaka says:

exactly..

9th May 2006, 14:20

nige says:

think i'd better get buff...

edit: hahahaha! i meant buff as in muscles...not naked-buff. ahem.

9th May 2006, 14:21

Uber_Spy says:

agreed D. Thats what I can bring! Masking tape....

9th May 2006, 14:22

Dhamaka says:

:D

9th May 2006, 14:22

i might have to get buff as nige puts it aswell then!

9th May 2006, 14:22

Dhamaka says:

Too late nige, and thanks for volunteering bmal

9th May 2006, 14:24

9th May 2006, 14:28

nige says:

9th May 2006, 14:29

Uber_Spy says:

9th May 2006, 14:30

Dhamaka says:

witnessed

bmal -You're here

9th May 2006, 14:31

Dhamaka says:

9th May 2006, 14:32

9th May 2006, 14:34

Dhamaka says:

You'll be begging to come, bmal

Watch http://moblog.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=959">this> space

9th May 2006, 14:36

youd like to think that :P

9th May 2006, 14:40

Uber_Spy says:

We are going to need a long table & video conferencing facilities. All candidates must demonstate skill with a tray & roller. Previous experience not necessary. Command of the English language also not entirely essential...

9th May 2006, 14:42

is it gonna be like the aprentice and dragons den?

9th May 2006, 14:43

nige says:

yeah - we'll get Dhamaka to put on a suit, false beard & mockney accent. all participants have to wear decorators dungarees & nothing else. if anyone doesnt make the grade, D has to point & say:

You...are fired!

9th May 2006, 15:16

nige says:

i've just commisioned some old friends at the Beeb to do a mockumentary...

9th May 2006, 15:28

Gael (wearing Homebase gren dungares and wielding says:

like lambs to the slaughter ...

9th May 2006, 15:29

Gael says:

EDIT
wearing Homebase green dungarees and wielding a paintbrush loaded with chocolate body paint ...

9th May 2006, 15:31

nige says:

lookin' good, Gael ;)

9th May 2006, 15:32

Uber_Spy says:

Nige - with Gael...that makes 'Girls Aloud'...hehehehehe...

9th May 2006, 15:35

Uber_Spy says:

Swamprose - can we see pictures of your workmen please? Casting is global...

9th May 2006, 15:37

yeah but with nige what does that make it?

9th May 2006, 15:37

nige says:

i'm strictly just documenting this event, and Uber's right, this now means we have Girls Aloud. one more chick & we'll have a cocktail on our hands...

9th May 2006, 15:44

Spike says:

* attempts mangina to pass of as chic - not working!

9th May 2006, 15:44

nige says:

hahahaha! the mangina!

9th May 2006, 15:46

why would you need to pass off as a woman spike they want willing victims sorry volenteers

9th May 2006, 15:47

Geodyne says:

Oh, my. I go off to a meeting and look what happens - the participation in the fun grows immensely!

Not too old for me either Nige, and go easy on me - I'm newly single for the first time in 12 years, it's mandatory to test the waters!

My paint brush is at the ready...

9th May 2006, 16:31

nige says:

i could read alot of these comments in soooooo many ways...haha.

9th May 2006, 16:33

well nige they are all meant in the naughty way im guessing thats how im reading them!

9th May 2006, 16:33

Geodyne says:

Er, actually no.

Excuse me while I wander off to the corner and attempt to remove my foot from my mouth.

*blushing madly*

9th May 2006, 16:36

nige says:

i like to err on the side of caution though...

either way, my camera is at the ready...hehe.

how on earth we got here from a picture of a boy in D's front room is way beyond me. i do note one thing though: it was the women that lowered the tone...

9th May 2006, 16:38

yes the women did it! it was all the ladies being naughty!

for once it was not the men that lowered the tone!

9th May 2006, 16:40

Geodyne says:

We have to do something to address the gender imbalance from time to time!

9th May 2006, 16:41

kel says:

this thread has been amusing me all day...

9th May 2006, 16:44

nige says:

*strokes chin* hmmmmn.

9th May 2006, 16:45

nige says:

wanna join in Dhamaka's decorating crusade too, kel? we can make it six...

9th May 2006, 16:46

kel says:

I've been scared off by the idea of a Spike/Old Gregg hybrid running after me with a dripping paint brush...

9th May 2006, 16:54

Spike says:

OI. i resent that, its pink paint, does that make it better!

9th May 2006, 16:55

Uber_Spy says:

Oooh!! *lightbulb moment
I can DIY in pink gloves with feather & pearl trim!! Sure I can find 5 more pairs (if Kel's in on this one....)

9th May 2006, 16:59

Dhamaka says:

come on kel, we can always string Spike up (next to naughty nige and reticent bmal) if you get too worried..

9th May 2006, 17:00

Spike says:

OI, im right here! im not scary, dont let me scare you, even a hybryd mangina stylee spike!

i want to paint pictures and song lyrics all over the walls!

9th May 2006, 17:02

i dont like the idea of those gloves they remind me of them horible women kim and aggie the 'how clean is your house' pair!


not that im joining in or out!

9th May 2006, 17:03

kel says:

sorry spike!

ok, i'm in!

9th May 2006, 17:03

Spike says:

:D. that better

ill make everyone tea and scones whilst they work, thats how nice i am!!

9th May 2006, 17:04

Geodyne says:

And I don't do pink. Just don't.

Sorry, Uberspy.

9th May 2006, 17:05

how would you be able to make scones while you are tied up?

9th May 2006, 17:10

Spike says:

i have my ways good sir!

and what, who mentioned being tied up, or is that just my selective reading agian!

9th May 2006, 17:12

Uber_Spy says:

Aahahaha. ok G....*contemplates plan B

9th May 2006, 17:14

Dhamakas last comment!

9th May 2006, 17:14

nige says:

kel's in - i reckon we've convinced her...what with spike's scones and that

9th May 2006, 17:17

Dhamaka says:

Uber Spy, Geo... we have a request from Gael to include sushi in this...

Spike, it was only if you carried on frightening kel

9th May 2006, 17:17

Dhamaka says:

it's interesting how nige hasn't protested about getting strung up though...

9th May 2006, 17:18

Geodyne says:

If we include sushi, then we invoke The Elf.

9th May 2006, 17:18

Dhamaka says:

think we have to ..

9th May 2006, 17:19

Spike says:

im not scaring kel, i dont know her well enough, and im not scary, just pierced and spiky!

mmmm scones!

9th May 2006, 17:22

Uber_Spy says:

Hmmmm. Sushi - yes, excellent idea.
Nige was also not completely opposed to painting in the nude. Interesting....
After googling for a Nude Decorating Service...I realize there's a serious gap in the market. Nige...this could be your big entrepreneurial break...

9th May 2006, 17:23

Spike says:

i can promote this, and help out, im sure

9th May 2006, 17:25

nige says:

sorry, i've been busy...

*still furiously pumping weights*

*breaks out a "most muscular" pose in the mirror*

9th May 2006, 17:29

Dhamaka says:

we'll rope you in somehow Spike, never fear...

9th May 2006, 17:30

Geodyne says:

*dies laughing*

Is this the most absurd thread since the Dave post?

9th May 2006, 17:31

Dhamaka says:

note how nige still hasn't expressed any concern about nude painting or getting strung up.

do you think he thinks we're not serious, ladies...

9th May 2006, 17:32

Gael says:

Helen is Queen of the Scone!
and where Helen goes Steve (not adverse to revealing his mangina - see his Memorable Movie comp entry for the evidence) is sure to follow ...

9th May 2006, 17:33

Dhamaka says:

wasn't a good day for concentration, was it Gael...

9th May 2006, 17:34

Gael says:

BTW I had to Google 'mangina'
it's been said before, but Moblog is so educational ; )

9th May 2006, 17:35

nige says:

*drops into some bench presses*

*abdomninal & thigh*

9th May 2006, 17:35

Geodyne says:

*dies choking yet again, trying not to laugh out loud*

Dhamaka, I think Nige just hasn't seen you, me or Gael in the same room for real.

9th May 2006, 17:36

kel says:

so let me get this straight, we've got rope, scones, paint, nudity and sushi... are we decorating or creating some kind of conceptual art?

9th May 2006, 17:36

nige says:

okay D - consider said subject matters as addressed. it's just that this idea is becoming so appealing to me now...

9th May 2006, 17:37

Gael says:

I have spent all afternoon deep in study, done an in-depth close reading and critical analysis of an anthology of poetry!
Even had to translate some french, look up big words in dictionaries, trace inter-textual refs and everything.
Unfortunately this book isn't on my syllabus and came from Amazon this morning : )

9th May 2006, 17:39

Geodyne says:

I think we can take that as a total lack of concern, ladies. He's in training, isn't he?

9th May 2006, 17:39

Dhamaka says:

kel - I'm thinking about where we can do it. Conceptual art if done, for example, in the sun in a London park but maybe there's somewhere ..... more private..... where we could branch out a little...

9th May 2006, 17:39

kel says:

heeheehee

9th May 2006, 17:40

Dhamaka says:

*rubs hands in gleeful anticipation

9th May 2006, 17:41

Dhamaka says:

naughty Gael!

9th May 2006, 17:41

Geodyne says:

Gael, for shame.

9th May 2006, 17:42

nige says:

D, you are truly the queen of plays on words. "branch out a little...".

Geo, i'm way beyond concern right now. SOLD.

*contemplates next excercise*

*military press*

9th May 2006, 17:42

Dhamaka says:

Geo, you don't sound very convincing there..

*bows to nige

9th May 2006, 17:44

Geodyne says:

Vic...er, assistant number one, on a plate!

Edit: military presses hurt!

9th May 2006, 17:44

Geodyne says:

D: well, I'm still trying hard to make at least some pretense at being a serious scientist on this end....is that a good enough excuse?

(Hm. Said scientific skills could come in handy. I'm also good at knots.)

9th May 2006, 17:46

Dhamaka says:

no they don't Geodyne
knots are good though..

9th May 2006, 17:52

Dhamaka says:

A little encouragement for you nige l

9th May 2006, 17:56

nige says:

haha. still nothing...

9th May 2006, 17:58

Dhamaka says:

look again..

9th May 2006, 17:58

nige says:

aha! i wonder who that could be...hmmmmn ;)

9th May 2006, 18:00

Dhamaka says:

was, I'm afraid...
when I was a little younger than you

*sighs wistfully* wish I still had that body

9th May 2006, 18:01

nige says:

you buff girlfriend...

9th May 2006, 18:05

Dhamaka says:

was buff. Now just fit...
very fit

keep on trainin' nigeybaby..

9th May 2006, 18:06

nige says:

i have no doubts... about that, D...

*pops a multivitamin*
*pops a CLA*
*grinds up an ECA stack*

9th May 2006, 18:12

bronxelf says:

I am so sorry I missed all this.

Nige said: you gals scare me somewhat...

No. Trust me. We haven't even begun to scare you yet.

9th May 2006, 19:36

Geodyne says:

Just think. Four or five of us in the same room again...

9th May 2006, 19:38

bronxelf says:

We have a bail fund. Fuck it.

9th May 2006, 19:40

Geodyne says:

Whee!

9th May 2006, 19:41

Uber_Spy says:

ahahahahahahahah...brilliant!!

9th May 2006, 19:43

Dhamaka says:

yay!

9th May 2006, 19:46

Gael says:

so much for the old saying 'Lock up your daughters'!

9th May 2006, 20:32

jezus i go away for a couple of hours and this happens! nige is getting in to the spirit i see , and Belf is in on it now.

cant wait to see the out come of this

9th May 2006, 20:40

Geodyne says:

You may have to wait a couple of weeks for that...

9th May 2006, 20:41

bronxelf says:

Hey I learned to pick locks at an early age...

9th May 2006, 20:44

nige says:

do we have the magnificent seven on our hands now the elf has joined the party?

9th May 2006, 20:54

bronxelf says:

No, that's the 7th circle of hell. You made a wrong turn somewhere.

9th May 2006, 20:56

nige says:

now you really *are* beginning to scare me...

9th May 2006, 21:11

bronxelf says:

And?

Don't say I didn't warn you...

9th May 2006, 21:11

nige says:

and...
......i kinda LIKE it!

hahahahahahaha!

9th May 2006, 21:12

Twiglet says:

Nige WOULD LIKE the girls to scare him I think....

9th May 2006, 21:13

bronxelf says:

Ah, men.

So easily frightened.

So crunchy in milk.

9th May 2006, 21:14

Twiglet says:

Breakfast time then Bronxelf?

9th May 2006, 21:15

bronxelf says:

(so many comments, so little time...)

9th May 2006, 21:15

Geodyne says:

Now that you mention it, I haven't had dinner yet...

9th May 2006, 21:21

Dhamaka says:

twiglet, it's either that or he thinks we'll back off if he calls our bluff...

9th May 2006, 21:21

Geodyne says:

...

...

...that would be a bad idea.

9th May 2006, 21:21

Dhamaka says:

shhh...

Directly exerpted from The Care and Feeding Guide to Me:


1. I never bluff. It's why I don't play poker. But if I get pushed to a point where I say something and you think I'm bluffing? Guaranteed, I'm not.

9th May 2006, 21:23

nige says:

i'd break your teeth if you tried to crunch me. i'll allow nibbling, but thats where the buck stops. if you're still interested, lets talk terms...hahahaha!

9th May 2006, 21:23

Geodyne says:

D: I thought you said you were going to work?

*stern face*

9th May 2006, 21:23

nige says:

i think this string has now become a full-time job...

9th May 2006, 21:24

Dhamaka says:

oops.
I did, didn't I

I'll post when I'm done

*walks off saying
I will *Not* do a Gael,
I will *Not* do a Gael,
I will *Not* do a Gael,

9th May 2006, 21:24

bronxelf says:

Whilst I'm sure you're quite tasty, I'll leave the munching on you to someone else. They can tell me about your alleged tastiness later.

9th May 2006, 21:26

nige says:

hahahahaha! damn right, you don't want none 'o this, gal...

9th May 2006, 21:27

Geodyne says:

Nige: I'm sure you're tasty, but unless you taste like rice pudding Elf is unlikely to try...

9th May 2006, 21:29

bronxelf says:

*DIES*

9th May 2006, 21:29

nige says:

well, thats just dandy, isnt it?

and where the hell is my support on this damn thread? am i like, the only guy on here now? Spike! bmal!

shit...

9th May 2006, 21:31

bronxelf says:

They've all abandoned you, Nige.

9th May 2006, 21:32

nige says:

*sigh*

*resumes benchpress*

9th May 2006, 21:36

bronxelf says:

That's good. You'll need your strength I suspect.

9th May 2006, 21:37

Geodyne says:

*adds chocolate paint to the supplies list*

9th May 2006, 21:41

bronxelf says:

Oh god, it's willy wonka all over again...

9th May 2006, 21:42

Geodyne says:

He's everywhere.

9th May 2006, 21:44

bronxelf says:

pesky oompa loompas.

nige says:

the guy that gets the golden ticket is gonna be in for a right treat when he gets locked in a room with your motley crew.

*shouts out of window for male support*

9th May 2006, 21:44

i had to go and eat, but it looks like you all have dinner plans!

9th May 2006, 21:46

bronxelf says:


...out of the mouths of the innocent....


9th May 2006, 21:46

Geodyne says:

*gasp*

*DIES*

9th May 2006, 21:46

Spike says:

what i miss??

9th May 2006, 21:46

Geodyne says:

Nige: You're so very, very correct.

9th May 2006, 21:47

im not going to eat any chocolate bars then i aint wanting none of this golden ticket! :I

9th May 2006, 21:50

bronxelf says:

*sits, rocking in the corner with a broken brain*

9th May 2006, 21:50

Spike says:

im sooo uber-confused right now!

and all this came from a boy/man working in D's bedroom!!

9th May 2006, 21:52

Geodyne says:

See, Elf? The whole world suddenly makes sense.

Edit: Spike: Some things just take on a life of their own.

9th May 2006, 21:52

bronxelf says:

Spike-- no worries.

Just one of those things where the monkeys just typed Shakespeare.

(note: this is not to compare Nige to a monkey in any way, just giving the odds here,)

9th May 2006, 21:53

bronxelf says:

And now I have "I've Got a Golden Ticket" in my head.

Fuck.

9th May 2006, 21:54

Spike says:

goes back to reality aka phallus shaking at nige!

9th May 2006, 21:54

Geodyne says:

That's not a bad tune for next week...

9th May 2006, 21:54

bronxelf says:

If you get him damp he'll be pissed.

(no, that pun wasn't intended- honest.)

9th May 2006, 21:55

Geodyne says:

You are so lucky. The beer was almost in my hand when I read that.

9th May 2006, 21:56

nige says:

*rofl at spike*

mad at the elf for comparing me to a monkey...

9th May 2006, 21:56

Spike says:

i amuse you, am i a clown?

9th May 2006, 21:57

bronxelf says:

I just SAID I wasn't comparing you to a monkey!!

9th May 2006, 21:57

nige says:

yeah, but you *really* were, weren't ya? eh? eh?

haha.

anyway, what else is on the list Geo? so far i have:
chocolate body paint
paint rollers
dungarees

9th May 2006, 22:00

Spike says:

ahem - scones?

9th May 2006, 22:01

Gael says:

erm
Dhamaka wil not do Gael???

9th May 2006, 22:02

Twiglet says:

Dhamaka: Sorry to go off topic but I want to say something to Bronxelf while she's on this thread.

Bronxelf: Just wanted to say I really like your pics, most notably the pics of the city, the subway and of course the cats! I don't comment much though because I have an eyesight problem ongoing at the moment and I find your colour scheme (which is stunning) really hard on my eyes and I can never follow a thread on your moblog. But I do love your stuff! x

Anyone else reading this: Advice on the eye problem is NOT being sought. : )

9th May 2006, 22:03

nige says:

oh yeah. which means we need also need jam & clotted cream...

9th May 2006, 22:03

bronxelf says:

Twiglet- Thank you! Kostika made the CSS theme for my moblog as a birthday present last year. It's super!

9th May 2006, 22:04

Spike says:

heheheh, nige. you knows i can do the jam!

9th May 2006, 22:05

nige says:

twiglet :(

9th May 2006, 22:06

Geodyne says:

I'd make a comment on the English and jam, but I've already got in trouble for that once today.

Nige: The list is for another event, not this one. However we're still looking for vicassistants to add to the list for this job.

Gael: that's what you get for visibly shirking revision at lunch time! :P

9th May 2006, 22:06

nige says:

spike ;) hahahaha

9th May 2006, 22:06

Twiglet says:

...and when someone rates you a 10,,,that'll be me!

9th May 2006, 22:09

Spike says:



*DROOLS

if theres jam..count me in

9th May 2006, 22:10

dave loves the jam!
(psst nige she was you know....comparing you to a monkey! tee hee)

i dont think your a monhkey i think your a buccaneer


oh and dave! NO CROSS BOWS

9th May 2006, 22:10

Gael says:

you see my problem is that I can't just 'lurk' silently on the fringes, being a mere voyeur just doesn't cut it for me ...

9th May 2006, 22:10

Geodyne says:

I rest my case, your honour.

Edit: Gael - that's why we need you up the front, in the corset!

9th May 2006, 22:10

Spike says:

mmm corset!

Aidan.. Why??

9th May 2006, 22:13

bronxelf says:

Twiglet- Thank you so much! :D

Geo- corsets do tend to put people's assets right up front...

9th May 2006, 22:13

first off im going to join in on the hmmmm corsent ness!

and dave read the email. no cross bows!

9th May 2006, 22:15

Geodyne says:

Elf: mmph smumph

Translation: why, you're right!

Aidan: you're welcome. :)

9th May 2006, 22:17

nige says:

*adds to shopping list*

-vivienne westwood corsets
-real strawberry jam

9th May 2006, 22:17

Spike says:

i gots no e-mail telling me not to. Theres almost ALWAYS an occasion for crossbows, theres always that 'just in case' option

mmm assets

9th May 2006, 22:18

Gael says:

I still think there's some sort of height/weight asset ratio going on there - and as I've got at least 6 inches on the rest of you ...
(and when I did some research into corsets it seemed to suggest that people with assets of my magnitude shouldn't wear corsets at all but some other form of under pinnings?)

9th May 2006, 22:18

nige says:

gael, having seen a few of your moblog pics, i think you should *definately* wear a corset. haha. find one cut away at the hip to show off your new tattoo...

9th May 2006, 22:21

Geodyne says:

There was some other word as I recall, but the end result was the same.

9th May 2006, 22:22

corsets make ladies look really good adds all the curves..

i like curves!

9th May 2006, 22:24

nige says:

you tell 'em, bl.

9th May 2006, 22:25

Geodyne says:

Trust me bmal, my curves don't need help.

*has way too many curves*

9th May 2006, 22:25

nige says:

you tell 'em, Geo.

9th May 2006, 22:26

bronxelf says:

My curves need absolutely no help.

But they make excellent back support!

9th May 2006, 22:28

EVILMINK269 says:

Wow, I might be off topic given the corset talk but I adore your bedroom windows ;)

10th May 2006, 02:28

Dhamaka says:

I see you girls have been keeping the fort while I've been working, please continue the good work as I'm still not finished and won't be around much until I am..

btw the nice decorator guy says he's 24

re the shopping list, chocolate body paint sounds nice, as does jam and clotted cream but I think we need something more ... appropriate.. for its application. Paint brushes? Chocolate guns?

scones optional and I really think that if we're taking this route some Dulce de Leche would be good. Sticky liquid paradise and eminently spreadable..

A propos the other arrangement we girls have.. Corsets.. yes... must get round to getting something... Since Gael is busy studying (aren't you Gael) I wonder if any of the guys posting here have the oomph to come and help me choose something appropriate....

Andray, thanks for your email but I'm not sure which your blog is!

Thank you EvilMink.. The house is the oldest in the area with a very interesting history. These are just one of its pretty-but-expensive-to-maintain features..

10th May 2006, 06:44

Geodyne says:

There's always the twinkie trebouchet...

10th May 2006, 06:48

bronxelf says:

You need nutella.

10th May 2006, 07:10

Geodyne says:

We can arrange that. It even has nuts.

10th May 2006, 07:17

bronxelf says:

I'd be disappointed if it didn't.

10th May 2006, 07:18

daz says:

Need me to bring a ginormous jar?

10th May 2006, 09:17

Spike says:

10th May 2006, 09:20

Geodyne says:

Daz: I think so.

10th May 2006, 09:21

nige says:

10th May 2006, 09:40

10th May 2006, 09:43

bronxelf says:

10th May 2006, 09:43

Spike says:

bronxelf says:

10th May 2006, 09:47

Geodyne says:

HOW could you have missed those, Spike? For shame. They're the most important thing.

10th May 2006, 09:51

Spike says:

my profound apologies miss geo

10th May 2006, 09:54

nige says:

Spike says:

*continues hungover attempt to work

10th May 2006, 10:17

bronxelf says:

I am not sure we need to see a greengage dance...

10th May 2006, 10:20

10th May 2006, 10:45

Spike says:

10th May 2006, 10:48

10th May 2006, 10:49

Dhamaka says:

I do love to see a man work.

10th May 2006, 11:26

daz says:

That's what they're *FOR*, duh!

10th May 2006, 11:28

Spike says:

im happy to provide!

10th May 2006, 11:32

10th May 2006, 11:41

Geodyne says:

Daz: they do have other uses from time to time...(edit: see, bmal? I realise that.)

Spike: what are you offering to provide, exactly?

10th May 2006, 11:42

thats ok!

i was wondering what spike was happy to provide too?

10th May 2006, 11:44

Spike says:

i believe my appropriate comeback would be. 'what am i NOT willing to provide'

10th May 2006, 11:45

ok .................


......JAM DANCE!!!!!

10th May 2006, 11:46

Spike says:

im at work, when i get home maybe, i ahve a nice strawberry jam next to my bed, and a spoon!

10th May 2006, 11:50

nige says:

*just back from a run - takes seat to view Spike's jam dance*

10th May 2006, 11:50

i think you should do a work jam dance!

10th May 2006, 11:51

Spike says:

not at work, they would probably fire me, or just be to astonished to say anything!

10th May 2006, 11:54

that would be a good social experiment for you last day or when you know your gonna leave you should try it when you decide yo want a new job!

10th May 2006, 12:02

that would be a good social experiment for you last day or when you know your gonna leave you should try it when you decide yo want a new job!

10th May 2006, 12:02

that would be a good social experiment for you last day or when you know your gonna leave you should try it when you decide yo want a new job!


*edit f*ing computer can you delet the extra posts plz

10th May 2006, 12:02

nige says:

i love trilogy.

10th May 2006, 12:03

Geodyne says:

Honestly Spike, you're too soft. You offer anything and then refuse a simple jam dance...

10th May 2006, 12:03

Spike says:

yeah aidain, whats you up to dude,

when i finally leave this job to becoem a teacher i will!

10th May 2006, 12:04

puddlepuff says:

Hmm the one and only reason I want a cat,...

They like to lick jam :)

10th May 2006, 12:51

PP that is toooooo wrong!

10th May 2006, 12:52

puddlepuff says:

Peanutbutter then?

10th May 2006, 13:09

daz says:

You guys are making my brain melt... :)

10th May 2006, 13:09

no the cat licking element is wrong!!

10th May 2006, 13:11

Dhamaka NLI & still not finished her ##11** work says:

miaouw?

... just making a point, bmal


And now I'm off to buy a nice, cold ice cream.. perfect for a beautiful day

10th May 2006, 13:25

puddlepuff says:

Ouh Ice cream,....!!

10th May 2006, 13:27

what point are you making dhamaka?

10th May 2006, 13:34

daz says:

ice cream > jam, obviously!

10th May 2006, 13:38

nige says:

"balls"

just a random comment there - no reason.

10th May 2006, 13:39

daz says:

ice ice baby

10th May 2006, 13:41

yeah, right nige

10th May 2006, 15:25

FilbertFox says:

how dare dratted work keep me from this sort of banter.

10th May 2006, 17:47

Dhamaka NLI and working... honest... says:

I'm sure you could rekindle it FF, with, for example, a picture of, or reference to balls chains, barbed wire....

or even speculation as to what Geodyne's olive green and black outfit is going to look like. I know I'm interested...

10th May 2006, 17:50

nige says:

*raises hand*

i'll second that.

10th May 2006, 18:05

Geodyne says:

I'm going to retain an air of ladylike mystery on that matter (if that's still possible on this thread!).

And go home. A productive 10-hour work day ought to be enough to satisfy the taxpayers.

10th May 2006, 18:36

bronxelf, on boingo says:

I thought I was handling ball and chain theory?

10th May 2006, 18:37

Geodyne says:

And masterfully, I might add.

10th May 2006, 18:39

bronxelf, on boingo says:

geo- that would mean you had an air of ladylike mystery to begin with.

10th May 2006, 18:46

nige says:

*peers out from behind sofa - still somewhat afraid*

10th May 2006, 19:13

Geodyne says:

You just know me too well, Elf. Remember the old days?

Nige, it's all right. We won't eat you. Yet.

10th May 2006, 19:32

nige says:

hehee

10th May 2006, 19:34

FilbertFox says:

but we could! want to add wit and rudeness to join the other comments on here. But alas i am lacking in zing today i am too tired

10th May 2006, 19:59

bronxelf, on boingo says:

I'm not eating Nige. I have a full plate here.

10th May 2006, 21:00

Geodyne says:

A pleasant change from rice pudding, then?

10th May 2006, 21:01

Dhamaka says:

Thank you Spike for your open offering, I'll have a think about what I'd like you to offer and whether it should include jam

Geo - speak for yourself

B'elf - good to hear you're indulging yourself

FF- rest well and pun tomorrow (oh, it is tomorrow already and I'm still on deadline :( )

11th May 2006, 01:08

Geodyne says:

I did say yet...

11th May 2006, 07:32

hehehe

11th May 2006, 07:42

bronxelf says:

Yes. I had the Last Meal of the Condemned with The Hurricane Magnet.

Tasty.

11th May 2006, 07:49

FilbertFox says:

now its tomorrow i have a different set of experiments to mess up. Science is great!

11th May 2006, 08:32

Dhamaka who's still here for work says:

B'elf, at the mo eating anything is good with you..
FF, let us know how it goes with your boss

11th May 2006, 08:38

FilbertFox says:

thanks, it should be ok, he seems nice enough, but apparently gets a bit 'uptight' when t hings go wrong. And i am good at going wrong!

11th May 2006, 08:41

bronxelf says:

Well The Hurricane Magnet and I had a good dinner. He took the leftovers.

I am okay. I'm just going to be a waste case by tomorrow night.

And youre right-- I feel like im barely scraping by on this project.

11th May 2006, 08:48

Dhamaka says:

((hugs))

11th May 2006, 15:52

FilbertFox says:

well my experiment is a complete no goer. But the boss just said, chalk it up to experience. Will try again next week when i have some more cells

11th May 2006, 17:27

Dhamaka says:

I hear red wine and chocolate cake are good for (personal brain) cells...

11th May 2006, 19:48
