for those that read spanish......

la diferencia entre miedo, terror y panico es

miedo: que te metan un paraguas por el culo
terror: que abran el paraguas
panico: que lo saquen

:eek:

I saw the actress Tupele Dorgu, who plays Kelly Crabtree in Coronation Street, when shopping in Manchester on Sunday. Very fit, glamorous & stylish in the flesh, about 5ft 11.....:p
The last time i was shopping in Manchester, i saw David Beckham driving a big f**k off Bentley type thing away from his hotel, the day b4 England played a pre-world cup friendly at Old Trafford in June 2006.
And the time b4 that, when i was shopping in Manchester, i saw Tina O'Brien who plays Sarah Platt!
Kinell:eek:

The only time I've been in Manchester for proper socialising, I saw Steve Coogan and a Corrie actor whose name I forget in a pub. That was West Didsbury though, the telly celebrity capital of the country. It's like Berks and Bucks where you can't move for news readers, Terry Wogan, Uri Geller and Dennis Waterman/Rula Lenska.

Talking of people with more money than taste, it's not just me is it - there's been an explosion in personalised number plates in the last few years. This morning was DE51 RAT, yesterday N.BOSHEL, then Tim Rice in his LYRICS Roller/Bentley, and I've seen a particularly tasteful one a couple of times: D8 RAP. It's a Volvo. Why would someone buy a Volvo and mark it 'date rape'?

Oh and the other week there was 64 MA. I wondered if it was a trader with a very, very simple system. It was an expensive motor though so he must be doing alright with it - is it anyone on here? :)

any decent bookshops in London?
particularly intersted in: science, trading, paranormal, philosophy.
(when I mean good, I mean stocking more than the usual run-of-the-mill stuff.)
I think I might take tomorrow off and have a long weekend on London.
Mysteries. Monmouth St (Covent Garden). Watkins (back of Leicester Sq.). Hatchards Picadilly (almost next door to Fortnum & Mason). Foyles (Charing Cross). Financial World Bookshop (Bishopsgate) [is it still there? Open weekends? - been a while since....]. Books etc and Waterstones (Picadilly).

I may be a big hairy bloke, but I have prettier toes than the average flip-flop wearing female London commuter. My tube journeys at the moment are just a freakshow of deformed, crooked, scabby, dirty little piggies. Put them away you grotesque slags.

Razor blades

I've mostly always used wilkinson swords disposable razors.

Last year i bought some SuperMax3 (3 blades) that were a new product on offer. Buy 4 + 4 free in the packet........I have been using them since the winter, and thought i had a coldsaw round my mouth from the cold, which the razors were re-irritating when i shaved, although i've never had coldsores b4. I've had to keep putting on vaseline to sooth the sore!

Anyway, last week it dawned on me it might be the SM3's that are the problem, so switched back to WS razors. The result has been no more irritation, and healthy skin around my mouth.

I think the 3--blade system is a con. They argue a smoother shave, due to a smoother shaving surface etc. but i cut myself with them just as much as i do with 2 blades, if not more, which i see as being due to the bigger razor blade covered area.
SM3's also have a "nature strip" made up of the healing, anti-bacterial, anti-microbrial tea-tree oil. I don't think i'm allergic to it, as have used TTO in other H&B products.

Lesson learnt - stick to establishedbrands like WS, and when you find a product you're happy with, if it ain't broke........

My engine self-destructed on the first day i used my current car 2 years ago. I had to buy a new recondtioned engine :eek: :devilish: .Luckily i got the car fairly cheap, and so with the new engine, it still worked out as a pretty good deal. It meant being without a car for 3 weeks though, which is a massive inconvenience.
Two months b4 that, when joyriders crashed into my car outside my house, then sped off, never being caught, this was an even bigger inconvenience, and meant waiting for the insurance to decide whether they'd rwrite it off or not. They eventually decided to write it off, after abouut 4 weeks of my wasted time :eek: :devilish: :devilish: .

I bought some moderately posh sunnies at the airport last month. Took them off to put them on my head this morning(as I was on the train - not cool wearing sunnies if it's not actually sunny imho). Bloody lens clicked out of the frame. Managed to click it back into place but not best pleased. Never bought a pair of shades and paid more than twenty quid before (as I always sit on them or something) and they're falling apart. And if I want to take them back to the shop I have to wait till I next pass through Heathrow. And I never intend to use that stinkhole again.


Grrrrrr
Thanks - random rant over.

Its called sods law :rolleyes: ;) .

I bought some half decent polarised £10 SG's off ebay 2 years ago, and couldn't break them or lose them if i tried. The same could not be said about my Ray-Ban's, which i lost on the beach within a week! This made me swear not to buy over-priced gimmicky SG's again!
