I've started watching Lost again from the beginning (can't believe it's been 10 years since it first aired).
Easily one of the best series ever made, even if it does get a little silly toward the end.
So many interesting characters, relationships and as many poignant moments.
This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something
say:What is life
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)
Really want to learn a trade but unsure of what to do. Anyone one here a tradesman that could recommend anything to me? I've had a go of plumbing and really liked it. Always wanted to try plastering for some reason. But I'm open to everything.
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.
E.g Sunshine on Leith (proclaimers)- I'm walking on Sunshine
ill start - The Boys of Summer

I've gone a wee while without listening to much in the way of new music, but there's been a spate of album releases I've wanted to check out lately for one reason or another and I've been pleasantly surprised.

I'm getting married in Edinburgh later this year. We're looking for a pub for the day after the wedding so we can have drinks and catch up with anyone that is up for another day of celebrations.

Just wondered what people had been too see at the flicks as of late?
I went and saw The Purge last night and thought it was very good.
Earth to Echo today and I was gutted it didn't live up to the expectation.

22 jump street - poor

A little thread for sharing recipe ideas and so forth, whether it's quick stuff to knock up after work or a full blown meal that takes ages.
Got my own version of a cheap one hour (and particularly unauthentic but still tasty) cassoulet that I swear by for after work, on the way home from work I...
.... Can anyone lend me some subbuteo stuff so I can re create the highland fling? I would also need some Rolf Harris and Jimmy Savile figures to re create the Hearts crowd. Apparently this took him 5 hours to make.
It is just great to see Hearts FC reach out to those of the fringes of society and I think it is great that they have obviously put aside special enclosures for these people.
Couldn't see this posted anywhere but what on earth was the hearts fan doing?!?!

My son was hit in the face by a glass thrown by some **** in this place last night. It seems to be random, as he was sitting with his mates and not aware of any trouble/tension/bad feeling beforehand.
The staff helped him - including picking glass out of his eye, but security and CCTV (they...
Don't have much booked this year but kicked off with Forth On The Fringe comedy gala at the Playhouse last night.
