Had time before work so as I was perusing old reviewers and touched back with KiraRin, I noticed your comment on age and such and decided to take a looksee (don't mind me, I am the random guy who pops up out of nowhere :)).  First thing I noticed is you're still young!

Take it from an old man! ( :D) as you reach the point of feeling age, just remember one thing.  Older generally always means better.

The older the liquor or wine, the better it tastes.  The older the car, the more reliable it's made.  The older the book, the more thought provoking it becomes.  The older the painting, the more coveted it is.

Being young is certainly fun, and while I'm not too far from those days, I'm at the point where just reminiscing (see, I would never have used that word back then, lol) leaves me with a headache from all the "fun".

Great Profile!

Danka Swift. Yeah, I did not even know who and if anyone really reads the actual recommendations. I oft wondered if many just looks at the res with the highest number to find another appropriate similar title. Which is not a bad way to g. mind you.

I know that on the other hand, might look more to someone with similar tastes, or at least seems to grasp the overall nuance of a story, for a like title.

 

Anyhow, thanks. fun reading your bio.

I said underage because of you mocking my age. With age comes experience, I'll have you know :P Then again, 12 days to go til I'm almost leaving my 20's behind!

My customer is worse than a mug - we call him Dougal (from Father Ted), because we have never met someone so utterly feckless. What's scarier is that he's the customer for about £10 million of my contracts >.< I didn't get an apology from him, instead he blamed me for a stitch up. You get used to the public sector special cases after a while.

But I finally seem to be (mostly) better! It's been 3 weeks, but just getting over the last bit of a bad chest. If you see other people getting sick, take cover as there is most definitely something nasty going round!

If you enjoy the ecchi reviews, I should have one up soon for Strike Witches on the request of therik. Actually quite enjoying it, and the animation is gorgeous, but I have never seen so many panties in my life! All of the girls wear uniforms - apart from the trousers. So there are camel toes aplenty! You really should watch some ecchi, after all, you're a hot blooded male, aren't you...?

For Christmas, we're driving up to Manchester on the 19th, spending my birthday up there, then driving back on the 24th. Means we can get all of the annoying family stuff out of the way, then chill out with fillet steak on Christmas day. None of that dried out turkey here ;P

Thailand is definitely special. But I've been told we're going to Canada next year for a week to see friends out there, so going to be running low on holidays! May have to postpone the honeymoon til 2012 at this rate >.< But looking forward to the cheap beer and warm sandy beaches again. My best tip for the country is to take as few clothes as possible, and buy more out there. I got some gorgeous summery dresses for £3-4 each, so definitely packing light next time! But bollocks to the culture, I'm more the kind of person

How can you put on weight as a student? I spent most of my time drinking like a trooper, eating pizza and kebab and I was always a perfect size 10! It wasn't until I settled down that I managed to put weight on :p I guess discovering a love for cooking also helps. After the holiday, I *love* doing thai food - dumplings, spring rolls, curries, stir-fries..... all yummy ;P

The protests looked like awesome fun :D I hope you joined in! It's your right as a stoodent. I think it is awful putting up the fees so high, and will definitely put a lot of able people off being able to study. I think if anything, they should get rid of some of the pointless degrees (I remember laughing about "Swedish with soft furnishings" whilst browsing the UCAS book), and invest more in proper edjucation - like the sciences ;P

Anyways, you should swing by ISSUP again sometime. You're currently missing me sharing some of my thai pics :P

Hey there slowpoke, took your time. Guess it's all of that underage partying and drinking you're doing, young whippersnapper. 28 isn't too bad though, and I don't think 29 will be either - I'll tell you about it in 20 days. Hope you remembered the card :D

Customer meeting was... interesting. He phoned me at 9 to ask an unrelated question, so I enquired when he was reaching the site. The answer was "for what?". After explaining, he turned up 2 hours late, then accused me and the other supplier there of stitching him up. Magic. Just what I needed whilst sick. 2 weeks on, and I'm still full of a cold and getting ready to haul ass to the vets to be put to sleep.

Reviews do take a while when trying to give a balanced opinion, especially on something so popular. I like to make sure the (perverted) vocabulary matches the subject when writing too, when doing the ecchi reviews at least :p

I can't wait to be in the presence of something so gigantic, I'm weak at the knees already ;P

I'm lucky as a snivel servant, noone cares when you have time off. Luckily, my main project has the other PM coming back from honeymoon next week, so he's working most of Crimbo and can cover it. 10 working days left ^^ Just hope I'm feeling well enough to be back on the booze! Not touched it in over a week...

No idea why I loved Thailand so much - maybe it was the people, the food, the atmosphere, the weather, the beer, or a combination of all of them. It just felt like somewhere I could spend the rest of my life. I can't recommend it to people enough - Kuoni do some very decent deals out there, so once you graduate, you should look into it :p

But, should you wish to cook yorkshires, you can't beat these puppies:

Really easy, but absolutely amazing! I'm a huge cooking fan, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Loads of recipe books, and took a cooking course in Thailand, so I love spicy asian food. Also whip up some good (but bad for you) puddings....

Nom nom nom.....

 

 

Anyways, enjoy the snow ;P

I think that is a new reply record for you, what was that, 2 days? Maybe you have turned over a new leaf ;p

I'm feeling much better today, thank you, until I realised I have an important customer meeting on Monday that I have done zero prep for due to being off Thu and Fri. Ah well, I'll just have to distract myself with alcohol for the weekend, that will make everything better. Glad you enjoyed Gintama though, cause it was a bitch to write! Took me about 6 months because I wanted to give it its full dues without coming across as a rabid fangirl.

I'll keep you updated as to when (or if) there will be an APUK mk2. Not been many people online recently to talk to about it, but I guess that's the peril of this time of year. I must say, I'm looking forward to your little blustery entrance ;P

Just finished a morning/afternoon of wrapping presents, and absolutely sick of it now! Just discovered I have a couple more people to buy for, so back to the drawingboard of ideas!

I have booked off a couple of weeks over Christmas - I'll be off from the 18th through to the 4th of January. Should be a good time to catch up with friends and family and sink enough alcohol to support a small country. I had to use my annual leave, but I had 6 days rolled over from last year, so not too much of a hit when you factor in bank holidays.

You're a cheerful sod "if I last" indeed! We tax payers have supported you through uni, so your time will come to pay us all back :p A research project does sound like fun, especially in somewhere half way around the world! I've still got my heart set on moving permanently to Thailand, but as a non-national, it's virtually impossible to buy land out there :(

Beer Butt Chicken: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/beer-butt-chicken/Detail.aspx

Are you one of those guys that can actually cook? If not, I would recommend cooking this to impress a special lady, as it is absolutely amazing! Let me know if you want the best EVER yorkshire pudding recipe too :P

As to your name, I think you did tell me once, and then I successfully forgot what it was. I blame old age >.>

 

Anyways, laters taters!
