I never met him, he died in 1981.

My granddad would have been his contemporary since he was born towards the end of 1915. In the war he was mostly in Italy as a radio operator in a tank.

I remember them being pricey... budget at £4 a drink I reckon. You might have a little change.

My last.fm is frigging psychic. I was humming a verse from The Clerical Conspiracy by Sabbat shortly before I opened up a radio station on it, and then BAM! First song playing was the very same one I'm humming.

How the hell do you get the biscuit out without tipping the mug?

The pocket should be shorter.

Also, the flat side means half as much tea as a round mug. Do not want.

I once dreamt I was singing for Edguy as the German Eurovision entry. It was awesome, until I woke up :(

Works only if you're right handed and have fingers the size of needles, otherwise :love:

Also, how many people now have quotes in their sigs? I almost feel left out for a) not having one myself and b) not having been quoted. :(

So, just in case you feel like quoting:

I have my very own quote in a sig. The above person doesn't have a pint. You should buy him/her one.

There. That should do it.
If it sounds good, listen to it
