Martin: :D Sept 27, 2017 13:47:37 GMT
walkingdecay: Good morning. Oct 3, 2017 1:42:35 GMT
Martin: You were up early! Morning! :topper: Oct 3, 2017 7:15:33 GMT
walkingdecay: Never went to bed. Forza day. Um, night. Oct 3, 2017 10:08:25 GMT
walkingdecay: Your drivatar is a really dirty driver, by the way. Oct 3, 2017 10:08:52 GMT
Martin: Glad to hear it! :D :footloose: Oct 3, 2017 12:54:09 GMT
walkingdecay: And it won a buggy racing championship by five points, much to my resentment. Oct 8, 2017 13:50:56 GMT
Martin: I'm a better driver when I'm not actually behind the wheel. Much like in real life. Oct 8, 2017 19:32:05 GMT
walkingdecay: Teehee! I drove for only a few days after passing my test. Not only is my sight poor but I dream too much. I stopped when I aimed for Manchester and missed. Oct 10, 2017 7:39:18 GMT
Martin: :D Oct 10, 2017 12:02:31 GMT
minorkey: Yawning everyone... :coffee: Oct 12, 2017 7:20:48 GMT
walkingdecay: We had a new instructor for the tai chi sessions I attend and he was very keen to tell us to "break wind" at every opportunity, for the sake of internal health. I may have trouble with some of the most basic tai chi moves but that I can do like a pro. Oct 16, 2017 7:34:25 GMT
Martin: Small victories (rofl) I think I might also be a Tai Chi master in the making... :-/ Oct 17, 2017 9:10:52 GMT
walkingdecay: I can honestly say it's benefited my old frame without ever feeling like real exercise. Even without the licence to, um, cleanse my chi. Oct 17, 2017 13:00:12 GMT *
walkingdecay: My old Yamaha DSR1000 keyboard had one end immersed in a flood and wasn't tried until I plugged in a power supply yesterday. It didn't really work of course, but it did gurgle a bit. Years of pent up flood trauma finally expressing itself, I suppose. Oct 17, 2017 13:08:23 GMT *
Martin: :o Oh dear. Did you record the 'gurgling'? That could be fun :) Oct 17, 2017 13:11:45 GMT
davewhite: Cue for a performance of Handel's "Water Music" methinks :sherlock: Oct 17, 2017 14:01:57 GMT
walkingdecay: Heehee! No encores I'm afraid, as it went to the dump yesterday. It gurgles alone. I actually feel a little guilty. It just seems wrong to dump a musical instrument, even one that doesn't work. Oct 18, 2017 7:47:32 GMT *
scorpiodog: Surely, Pete, if it doesn’t work, it’s no longer a musical instrument. It is an ex musical instrument, it is no more. It is deceased etc etc. Oct 19, 2017 7:05:38 GMT
minorkey: It's an ex parrot Oct 19, 2017 7:23:57 GMT
