    Office Christmas parties

    Near Stirling. My wife's originally from here so we moved up a few years back. My office is in Leeds, but I can work remotely for most stuff and just go down there every month or so.

    Office Christmas parties

    I decided to skip mine this year after last year's shitshow. Apparently the gallons of free beer and wine weren't enough and a bunch of us went on to various pubs and clubs round Leeds after the do finished at midnight. No idea what time I got back to my hotel room or even where we went after about 2, but I woke up still bladdered with 15 minutes to go before checkout time. Staggered into the bathroom to find it covered in glass, I think I dropped a drink of water before I fell into bed and I also have a nagging memory of having an argument with one of the night staff as I was too pissed to be able to get into my room. Managed to get showered and the room cleared up and legged it to the station but missed the train I had a seat booked for- the following one had half its carriages missing, so I had to stand up all the way to Newcastle while a bunch of dicks on a stag do were passing round bottles of fucking Cointreau and annoying everyone. Got to Edinburgh and missed 2 connecting trains thanks to some cunt of a ScotRail guard who pointed out the wrong train. Finally got on yet another absolutely rammed train, and eventually got home over 7 hours after I'd left Leeds to an annoyed wife and kids who were expecting to go to a neighbour's house party that night- as I could barely walk by that stage I refused point blank and crawled into my own bed.

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

    Yeah, he was very complimentary of her in the retro birds thread. Quite rightly too, she's gorgeous.
  4. Happy!'s brilliant- really good, over-the-top black comedy/ fantasy. I think we should be due the second series soon as well, so it's a good time to jump in on it.
  5. She won by 200-117. Another damp squib.
  6. Bit risky with this bunch of snakes, although the ERG did 'threaten' to release the names of the MPs who'd submitted the letters so there might be something to this.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    "Running scared". I do like this site. Lays it all out nicely. The only even vaguely impressive result was the 0-0 away to Chelsea. Aside from that, they've won against some dross at home. That's pretty much it. There's three positional bands here- 1-6; 7-13; 14-20. They'll oscillate between 7th and 13th for the rest of the season. They're irrelevant. Yet again. And I can't help thinking that Silva is a fraud.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Thank fuck we got a strong and stable government last year to see us through these difficult times.

    Bournemouth (A) 8/12/18

    Sterling's goal against City a few years back was sort of similar, at least in how he completely fooled the defender and 'keeper- From about 1:45-

    Your 3 favourite players in the squad

    Difficult pick, we do seem to currently have a lot of very likeable players. From the down to earth nature of Robertson and Milner, the fun and joie de vivre of Mane, Shaqiri, Alexander-Arnold and Firmino, Alisson and van Dijk's imperiousness, and the placid but steely calmness of Salah and Gomez. All topped off with Klopp's infectious boisterousness. Great bunch of lads. Having to choose 3, I'd go for- 1. Salah 2. van Dijk 3. Alisson - based on their game-changing ability. For personality, I'd go for- 1. Firmino 2. Mane 3. van Dijk

    Was it this one against Monaco? Apologies for the commentary...

    Bournemouth (A) 8/12/18

    I love that after that, Mo skinned him twice to complete his hat trick and Cock scored an own goal. Instant karma.
  13. Was that from the We Want Plates Blog? Plenty more utter abortions there, not just breakfasts-

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Grieve's amendment's gone through as well- if May's deal gets voted down, the power of the House to decide on what kind of Brexit is increased. A hard Brexit or a no deal Brexit is now effectively dead in the water. Probably to May's relief. ^ Sorry, skend, posted at the same time as you did.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Good to see Parliament taking back control- government found in contempt and forced to publish its Brexit legal advice, losing the motion by 311-293.

    Everton (H) 2/12/18 Premier League

    We could magnify that ten-fold by setting up a crowd funding page...

    Ahh, Klopp was a lot slower and didn't bounce off as many walls.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    It's bizarre. They're a few points better off than teams like Watford or Bournemouth, mainly because they've beaten some dross at home recently. They're closer to the bottom of the league than the top, and 14 points behind us just over a third into the season. They played well for about a 15 minute spell during the first half on Sunday, and were quite tight in the second. And yet- completely ignoring the context of the goal- Klopp running on the pitch and the team celebrating the win means we're 'running scared'. Of what, exactly?
