What's on your mind?
Martin: "Won't you have some cake, Father? It's got cocaine in it. Oh no, hang on, it's not cocaine, is it. What do I mean now? - the little things... Raisins!" Feb 20, 2017 16:11:37 GMT
ocarolan: "Er, no thank you Mrs Doyle. I'm alright for cake just now." Feb 20, 2017 18:01:40 GMT
walkingdecay: Careful now. Feb 22, 2017 7:42:06 GMT
ocarolan: Down with this sort of thing. Feb 22, 2017 8:39:07 GMT
Martin: "I hear you're a racist now, Father" Feb 22, 2017 11:59:49 GMT
ocarolan: "Who said I'm a racist?!" Feb 22, 2017 12:08:42 GMT
walkingdecay: Just a minute...Keith is Martin's father? Feb 25, 2017 2:33:45 GMT
scorpiodog: Careful, Pete. They might be exploring The Dark Side of The Force. That's the Met police, of course. Feb 25, 2017 10:37:00 GMT
Martin: I could do worse ;) :kissbutt: (rofl) Feb 25, 2017 18:25:08 GMT
ocarolan: :-X Feb 26, 2017 0:43:42 GMT
walkingdecay: NPD. Finally. and His name's Cassady, after the muse of the Beats and the Dead. Mar 4, 2017 10:42:24 GMT *
Martin: Awwww....wee furball :thumbup: Mar 4, 2017 23:39:03 GMT
walkingdecay: He mysteriously flies out of his playpen in the night and leaves deposits all over the place. Well, he's either flying out or our other akita is jumping in there and "liberating" him. Infuriating breed. I love 'em. Mar 7, 2017 14:43:03 GMT
Martin: (rofl) Mar 8, 2017 0:43:22 GMT
walkingdecay: Wahoo! I had a scare with severe left hand pain after a heavy month of keyboard gigging in January but everything seems OK after a few weeks of rest. Mar 15, 2017 10:21:24 GMT
walkingdecay: Mass Effect day, if you have EA Access. I don't care if FemShep is scattered to the winds of the universe: I'm going to make a character as close to her as I possibly can. Mar 16, 2017 7:29:55 GMT
Martin: Glad your hand pain didn't persist, Pete. Sounds a bit concerning :o Mar 16, 2017 9:08:39 GMT
Martin: I played Mass Effect all the way through and loved it. Shepherd was badass 8-) For some reason I didn't quite get into ME2 or 3, although I do own them. Maybe I need to revisit... Mar 16, 2017 9:09:39 GMT *
walkingdecay: I've had a few days without the hand pain now. It was scary while it lasted. I began to wonder if I would have to stop playing and have to keep typing with my right hand. I have no clear idea of what caused it or what to avoid. Mar 17, 2017 15:20:32 GMT
Martin: Hand pain still gone, Pete? If it was the right hand, I'd maybe have guessed at the cause, but since it's not.... :D I feel your pain (sort of). My back/shoulder pain has only recently gone after 8 weeks :( Mar 23, 2017 9:32:02 GMT
