Iím on holiday in turkey and thereís a guy that goes around in roller skates taking orders for drinks and handing out ice lollies. I could easygo and order this myself, but it makes me happy when the guy comes round in his roller skates.
What are the little things in life that make you happy.
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...
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.
At the request of Alfiembra, here's the Driving Pet Peeve thread for frustrated motorists.
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....
Amarone in George Street was the venue for my niece's graduation dinner. I wasn't overly impressed, then again I never really expected to be if I'm honest. Lows were;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...
Received a parking ticket yesterday from P4 parking when helping a family member move. Has anyone else had a ticket from this mob and did you ignore or pay?
I've no idea how quickly they ticketed the car as I must have been out of it 10 minutes going by the time on the ticket
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.
Transformers - good, knew what I was getting
22 jump street - poor
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)
Does anyone have much knowledge of the changes to overdrafts and the rates being charged on them that are being proposed to come in next month?
The FCA has made a ruling that people exceeding their overdraft limit should not be shafted as hard as they have been in the past - and Iíve heard that...
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...
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.
best two I've heard recently
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)
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.
I will start with a couple
Antartica is the biggest desert in the world
The day on Venus is longer than the year.
There used to be a good 'what are you reading thread' somewhere on the forums but it's dropped off the front pages. I thought it might be a good idea to resurrect the idea and start a new thread for reviews, inspiration etc
I've just started The Body by Bill Bryson. Similar to his A Short...
A thread to post things you remember from days gone by. I love nostalgia and often take to you tube to reminisce with tv programmes from my youth but also love music from growing up in the 80s and 90s. Post what you want whether its tv adverts, clothes or sweeties its just a bit of fun.
I was wondering if there was any old techno music fans amongst us. I spent a huge part of the 90s in clubs and all nighters like rezerection. If so give us some of your favourite tunes. Iíll start.
not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.
Anyone here caught the mortgage overpayment bug? We remortgaged in the summer and started overpaying by £281 per month, just received our annual mortgage statement today and we've knocked a whopping eight and a half years off our repayments.
I'm thinking about putting some more into it. Anyone...
There was a thread on here about headphones a while ago that I took a real interest in as it’s something that interests me. I love listening to music and believe it can only be listened to loud. I have neighbours on both sides so I can’t play music loud so headphones are my best option. I scrolled...
Anyone know about how to do this? Can you buy software to do yourself at home or better getting it done by someone who knows what they are doing?
I have a stack of VHS tapes and smaller video camera cassettes that Iíd like to transfer into digital format and into a you tube account or similar so...
Does anyone know of any good TV and BB deals? My current contract with BT is coming to an end on 2nd March so I've started looking at Sky and Virgin (available in my area).
Anyone work for any companies wit special offers? Any help appreciated!
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.
About to change my car to automatic, basically panicking as Iíve had a manual car forever. Any horror stories or is it easy to make the change?
Does anyone have this in their home? Sick of paying Virgin £100 a month.
How does it work? Do you need to buy a box and then get a provider for the channels?
Looking for a bit of advice. Been cleaning the scuttle drain on duster as passenger footwell was soaking. Does anyone know if there's only one drain as the screenwash reservoir is covering where I think it would be.
After years and years of freezing my toes off following Hibs I finally stopped being tight and bought a pair of DM's last week. Wore them to the game today and the Christmas markets yesterday - no cold toes.
Another year and another plate of absolute ***** served up at the in-laws. Absolute *****!
How do you break it to the wife that you simply can't stomach it every year?
Anyone tried this? Tried it earlier, just tastes like diet Irn Bru, disappointing. Had hoped it was just marketing, talking about a new and undiscovered recipe etc and it would actually be similar to the old recipe. Doubt Iíll even finish my bottle far less but anymore.
My wife is saying that the above mixture contained a nuts about caramel previously . I have said I have never seen a nut based sweet in it before.
Ours are being delivered by Tesco tonight. I finally managed to drag out of the wife how much it cost.......£325 on food! What the **** has she bought? And I bet that doesn't include bevvy.
And I notice it's being delivered when I'm at the match, so I can't go through it all. Nae wonder the...
Does anyone know where the best place is to get a motorcycle helmet fitted? In particular one that would offer gift vouchers. Looking to give the vouchers as a gift so he can go and choose for himself. Anywhere in Edinburgh, Fife or Perth would be grand. Many thanks in advance!
Anyone else haggle ?
Just bought a semi expensive necklace for the wife's Christmas and haggled over tbe price and got £150 off the ticket price.
This was in a shopping centre in a well known jewellery shop.
One thing that i could not fathom was that one shop confirmed that they would give...
I often think about this, but I donít really know why. I donít believe in god, so obviously I donít believe in heaven. I also canít take the scientific point of view that it isnít possible as science is only based on what we know to be possible now. My gut feeling is that itís a human need to think...
Got an email from this guy trying to sell us alarms/security equipment.
Not seen a thread like this for a while, so what gigs are people going to in the near future?
I am just starting this as I suddenly have a load of gigs to go to that have only materialised over the last 6 weeks or so :greengrin
Tomorrow - The Bootleg Beatles, Wellington
Nov 10 - Coldplay,...
Coldplay are not going to tour to promote their album, to protect the environment. Why not go further and not record albums at all?
(Ironically, Chris Martin is telling us this from somewhere in Jordan. Man is an utter space cadet.)
What is it with the cost of black cab taxiís in Edinburgh nowadays?
I just got one from the High street to Blackford and it cost eleven quid! That was with a bare minimum tip as the driver didnít take cards.
Iíve been in Glasgow a bit recently and Black cab taxiís seem to be far cheaper....
Looks like Iíve managed to bag tickets. Never been before (done IOW, TITP before). Anyone able to offer any tips or advice?
Not too excited about the rumoured acts so far but expecting a lot for their 50th.
Some guy just said to me. ďWhere did that rain come fromĒ
It came from the clouds in the sky. Old people always say ďold age doesnít come itself or donít get old sonĒ what does that even mean?
Shocking news of his passing this morning.
One of my food heroes when I first entered the trade.
