    RE: And to think I thought cheesy pick up lines went out in the 80s...

    I always take people at face value, so I wouldn't even think of someone having an ulterior motive if I was being invited to a BBQ. sigh

    laugh You are such a breath of fresh air, B. I do believe I am falling madly in lust with you.

    RE: And to think I thought cheesy pick up lines went out in the 80s...

    Apparently I am meant to be flattered when someone wants to 'hook up with me'. I am aware it's not just me that gets these enticing emails. But when I said that I was busy washing my hair... they gave me their number? So as a second attempt I conceded that I was far too busy filing my nails. And the emails continued ... he thinks that my response is my sense of humour.

    Being polite isn't exactly working for me. It's tempting to simply saying having my arm torn off by a shark and dying a slow painful death would be preferable... but ... THAT would be continuing the conversation. So I shall say nothing at all.

    Maybe it's time we share some of these pick up lines for our own amusement.

    RE: Lunch anyone?

    Bnaughty: And was this true in your case? Were you looked after by a charming waiter Shirley Valentine


    Alas that was not the case, I truly was only there for cultural experiences. But your reference certainly made me laugh, B.

    RE: Lunch anyone?

    Bnaughty: Oh dear, was it Ryanair or Sleazy Jet that has upset you? Did they throw hot coffee over you and then make you pay for it? What were you doing over here anyway?


    It was as simple as being confined for too long in one place.

    Why was I in Spain? Oh I heard the locals love looking after tourists!

    I don't doubt it... you seem quite lovely.

    However, my flight home from Spain a couple of weeks ago is still far too fresh in my head. I am not a huge fan of flights to Europe.

    RE: Lunch anyone?

    Bnaughty: It could be a "y" or an "i" too. Shall we have lunch and discuss it?


    Let's see... Malaga, Spain... at the very least that is a fifteen hour flight to Dubai, change aircraft.... six and a half hours to Madrid... then I would have to be able to drive in Spain, which clearly means I need to speak Spanish because the road signs are all in Spanish....

    Flattering, but it's a wee tad too far.

    RE: Lunch anyone?

    pat8lanips: I dont smoke ciggies, but maybe if there was a train station to smoke at I would. Chocolate croissants today, might have fish and chips later.


    Chocolate croissants sound positively ghastly! Almost as bad as chocolate hot cross buns.

    Ps. What the hell am I doing on the Aussie forums??
    I think I pressed the wrong button by mistake .


    Actually I hadn't looked at where you were from... now that I have. .. I actually found the norm in the UK was to go to cafes and restaurants ... rather than have people over. They are quite social there.

    You are quite welcome to the Forum's here.bouquet

    Most live such busy lives, ( posting on the blogs ) they don't have time to cook , either for themselves or friends !

    Years ago I had dinner parties and friends around quite often... Now I work too much and it's all too much trouble. doh

    RE: Lunch anyone?

    pat8lanips: Stalkbook is a pox. Signing your personal life away to a marketing company, that's all it is.

    Try to cancel an account and you'll see what I mean. Everybody only uses it to share photos with their family and friends, which I can do much more easily and quickly with my phone, or a group email.

    But I digress, the increase in eateries and the demise of people visiting each other... People have much higher standards for food and coffee than ever. They apologise for instant coffee, as though they're offering Heston Blumenthol a cup of international roast with milk powder.

    I'm originally a Sydney boy, and it always amazed me how Melbournites spent so much time visiting each other's homes, where my social group would be more likely to meet at a restaurant or venue. I always dismissed it as climate-related, where its probably more like the way things are done in Europe.


    Good Morning Pat,

    Well the eateries in Melbourne are truly amazing. You have an opportunity to eat out at all hours of the day and night. What surprises me is how prevalent this café lifestyle has become in country towns. It seems they are popping up everywhere in town. For instance for ten years the town I live in had one Thai restaurant ... and now we have three. The only good thing about the increase in cafes/restaurants is they are spreading out , which means it's easier to find parking away from the hustle and bustle of the busy shopping area.

    When I joined Facebook, it was because a couple of my friends were heading overseas and they begged me to join it so they could keep in touch. I was meant to be there for a few months. But by the time everyone had added me... It was difficult to walk away. But seriously my friends and family do not post anything negative or have rants... so I deal with less than others do. :)

    RE: Lunch anyone?

    pat8lanips: As in, people coming over for lunch etcetera, might innocently put something like "I was visiting so and so for lunch, and saw they'd got new curtains in their lounge room" or something like that.

    Talking in general, not related to your situation. I don't do stalkbook anyway, but I know a lot of people who have to mention every cup of coffee or muffin they eat, as though it's important news.


    It's odd you should mention facebook stalking... We had a new start at work recently and most of the staff looked her up on Facebook to see who she was. I was a bit stunned wondering why they couldn't just wait and decide once they met her.

    If someone put inane posts up on Facebook, I would simply delete them. I find Facebook a great way to share photos of areas I have explored, but for the most part... I don't get too involved there.

    I see this as less connected. We no longer share anything that means anything. We choose the easier options. As for being Facebook 'fodder'.... are you referring to my comments, or the events themselves?

    RE: Lunch anyone?

    In the last few years cafes and restaurants have been on the increase.... these days that's our idea of an outing. We head out to breakfast, lunch, brunch, coffee&cake, dinner... It's our way of socialising.

    Is this a sign of the times? People no longer seem to invite someone over for a meal because it's easier to go out and have someone else do the dishes... AND if you are out somewhere, it's easier to end the time together. If they are in your home... it's whenever they feel the need to leave.

    I live in a country town that has a dramatic increase in the places to go out for a meal in the last few years. Surely this can't just be in my neck of the woods.

    RE: CentreUnlinked - 3rd Class citizens

    wash2u: Now battling to get the Aged Pension because my "Certificate of Particulars of Birth" provided by the Registrar General's Department of New South Wales is not sufficient to prove I was born.


    I have just applied to get a "Birth Certificate" from BDM NSW (previously part of Registrar General's Department of New South Wales) and they have asked me to provide a Birth Certificate as "Proof of Identity."


    So Wash, you are simply a figment of our imagination? You don't exist.
