This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something

And then the next poster makes an acroynym out of last word of my sentence in response
say:Life is for elephants (but hopefully better:greengrin)
A new game!!!
I will start by saying the name of a song, the next person then has to name a song title which uses a word from the prebvious title.

Let me start by saying that I shave my own head. Through choice my I add as I have a gorgeous head.
Anyway , on holiday I went to the Spanish barber and she asked me if I wanted my eyebrows shaved . WTF!
I said aye and I've never looked back.
I shave myself now quite confidently with a number...
I've never watched this programme before,but it's on the tele now. What a load of utter pish. The most desperate people I've ever seen, it's like Jeremy Kyle for the telegraph generation :rolleyes:

Anyone recommend a good gym with a pool in Edinburgh?

Currently in Gibraltar for a job and a meeting and the bloody airlIne has lost my luggage :-(

I shall be turning up for a meeting first thing in the morning in yellow trainers and a green polo :-)
I'm back with Scottish gas supplying my gas and electricity. They've emailed me with the offer of a 'free' upgrade to a Smart Meter. Anybody got one, is it worth the hassle.

Have been all over the UK and seen some right ****holes, but over the past few weeks I've been in Doncaster for work and this place is almost inexplicably bad. Never have I seen a place so empty and devoid of any semblance of culture. The place and its people feel hopeless. Not that there's...
As per a suggestion on another thread. What Facebook behaviour gets on your nerves?
'What's up hun?'
'It's private, I'll message you bbz'
People commenting on spoof news stories as though they are real, that's more amusing than annoying though. I read one last week from the...

Noticed online that they are about to celebrate the Citrus Club's 25th birthday, after which they are going to make a decision as to whether to keep the club open or not - the management putting out a 'Use us or lose us' plea.
Would be a crying shame if the Citrus Club went out of business. Had...

Was having a conversation about how much money I used to go out with for a good night in my twenties, this would include bevvy all night, chippy and maybe a taxi home. I recall it was about £20-£30. Fast forward to now, nearly 50 years of age and I hate going out even just for a decent session...
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.
I will start with a couple

(Note: Nae Chic Youngs. We're talking exiles)
I'm no techy but would it be feasible technically and inkeeping with the tone of our messageboards here on Hibs.net to incorporate a 'like' button/function for posts?
Would make it easier to show appreciation without having to quote and comment and use up space/bandwidth. Or has it been discussed...

For no apparent reason I've suddenly had the feeling that I want one. The extra thick heel toasted and smeared thickly in lurpack butter. There can be no doubt that this will be my breakfast tomorrow morning,
I thought I'd start a thread about the greatest song of all time. Obviously I think that Creep is the best song ever and anyone who disagrees is wrong, but if you must, I'd like to hear your second best :greengrin:greengrin
