So, to kick it off.......
When you are just about to get into your car in a car park some Dumbo decides to draw in tight alongside your driver's door despite there being empty spaces everywhere around....
Seen this on a few forums, usually a laugh, apologies if it's already been done on here.
Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
I do find myself listening more to mixes during the day rather than playlists or albums. They have certainly helped me broaden my musical tastes...So heres a couple that Ive been listening to this week..Would love to hear what mixes your enjoying from all genres.
Resident Advisor - DJ Bus...

My dad once told me i had a lot of potential, right before he pushed me off the balcony.
(not so much a joke, but I like it)
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)
I know there's a few people on here with a fondness for Orbital.
Nice wee interview with the brothers Hartnoll in today's Guardian about the making of "Chime" here.
Not seen a thread like this for a while, so what gigs are people going to in the near future?

Tomorrow - The Bootleg Beatles, Wellington

A friend of mine thinks one of his group can't go now so he'll have a spare.
I'm not sure how much he wants yet but I guess it'll be face value.
18 months since Pet Peeves III.
The fitba' season's over so here's PP-IV prescribed as a wee bit therapy for us moaners until the new season starts.
I hate when temporary roadwork signs are left up when they are not...
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

I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.
I will start with a couple

Place: Rannoch Moor
Some strange karaoke host just accosted me outside Churchill's in Blackpool, gonna need to have a few more pints to recover. :-)
I got them for my daughter, but sheís sadly developed an allergy to them. They come with everything you will need. Free to a good home.
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.
Babel - Mumford and Sons: Develops their sound from Sigh No More and really cements...
As a keen scholar of everything World War Two I was mightily impressed with these photographs!
Anyone collecting? We've got quite a few doubles if anyone wants to put numbers up here could do swaps. (I can't believe I'm asking this at my age)
As the title says, Iím a tad worse for wear but just stood on my iPhone charger plug.
Is there any other pain like this?
My wife and I are coming through to Edinburgh in a few weeks. We have a room booked in the Malmaison in Leith.
What Bus goes there from Princess St? Or what would a private cab cost roughly from Princess Street say from Balmoral Hotel area.
Needing some advice folks.
A very good good colleague of mine has discovered that's she's literally been shafted by an ex. She applied for credit for a new car and was refused. I helped her get her credit file and she was in tears at no less than 6 defaults - none of which she was aware of or...
Even as one of the main offenders, I have to hold my hand up and say I can understand why people dislike puns in threads. A clever one is fine but they tend to drag out till they get to the barrel-scraping level.
Here's a poll to try and get a general view of .netters.
You don't know where you'll end up seated but £30.
Proclaimers docu on radio Scotland at the moment :)
..or listen again on the bbc website
Has anybody on here dealt with this? From what I've read it looks like the area needs re-plastered, but is their any other options? I've came across this https://www.permagard.co.uk/salt-neutraliser-5-litre , although no idea if it would work. The affected areas only around 150mm x 100mm, and has...
Is it just me, or has the service gotten worse over the past few months. Parcels, letters etc constantly late. Stuff going missing, postie signing for things himself then posting through letterbox. The dreaded 'We are sorry we've missed you' card through the door even though you have been sitting...

Mrs R took a few wee videos at the gig to send to her poorly dad and I took one of Sympathy because I love it!
So that no-one who doesn't want to see them before the gig stumbles on them by accident, I'll post them as replies to this thread.
I should say that the sound was infinitely better...
My wife and I were sitting at a table in a beer garden yesterday. There were still quite a few tables free a couple in the shade but 2 or 3 the same as ours.
A couple in their probably 60s decided to sit at end of our table as in the sun didn't ask if OK or ask if anyone else was sitting there...
Anyone done this? We went last night for a works night out, was very good, enjoyable and fairly difficult but we managed it. Onto Brewhemia after it, was quite impressed in there too.
I've just had a ton of coal stolen which I was storing at a former railway sidings.
Unbelievable. The authorities have been advised and we are going through the security videos just now.
Used to be a huge fan of Eminem - the first CD I ever bought was the Slim Shady LP but Revival really disappointed me, Em is capable of so much better. Any Slim fans on here?
Is anyone aware of the law when it comes to items abandoned or left behind when a company gets liquidated?
I live near a former railway sidings and yard which has laid untouched in any capacity for nearly a decade. There looks like there are several tons of coal there, I've established that the...
Sometimes a combination of two foods cannot be beaten.
Just had a fish supper that meets every need! Thick haddock, hard batter outside but yielding inside.
Chips that are perfectly cooked, with brown sauce and salt. Brilliant!
Itís almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but Iím guessing that at some point in time weíre all struggling to lose weight.
I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.
I've just been in B&Q.
I've no idea as to why, but I really like the smell of that place.
In fact, I'm still sitting in their car park so I think I'll pop back in for another ming at it.
(Also to buy a specialist bulb, the price of which I previously balked at.)
I've got some German friends coming over to Edinburgh for the marathon next week and one of them wants to try haggis. They're staying at Seaton Sands and I was wondering if anyone knows a decent place to eat haggis?
Hot or a pain in the Bonnington Toll?
