    Rockdoor or Solidor. Budget about £1.5k. they're supposed to be unbreakable, I'm not convinced but it didn't stop me shelling out.

    I said ages ago she's seriously ill. I can't recall what show I saw her on, she was shaking like a shitting dog.

    He's a genius, IMHO.
    Some of his minor characters have been brilliant. Like Keanu Reeves.

    Roger_Mellie got a reaction from Heart's Ease in The fear of jumping from balconies   
    It's really common, I have it also. I stayed at this hotel a few weeks back. Lovely but did my feeling of throwing myself off high things no good at all.

    Roger_Mellie reacted to NewryH in The Festive Holidays...how much time do you take off?   
    16 days off.  Basically 3 weekends and two weeks in the middle.
    Although I appreciate the less stress driving and general relaxed work days, there's a lot to be said for sitting on my arse watching quite shit films all day eating chocolate and turkey. 
    Last time I worked between Christmas and new year I hated it.

    Same as always: 10 for me. Which means I can finish on Friday. It  also means I miss all the workplace faux-festivity and being expected to have a drink with people I wouldn't usually consider socialising with.

    Roger_Mellie got a reaction from JFK in White Christmas?   
    Fucking racists.
    Nothing wrong with a black Christmas. And another thing, why is it only a nice day for a white wedding? Can black people not be married on nice days too?
    It's a disgrace.

    Are they monogrammed red velvet loafers? 
    Aside from the shoes that guy in the red looks pretty good. I know there's a fetish on here for high quality second hand Harris Tweed, but not everyone likes to dress like they've been bin-dipping at the Sue Ryder shop.

    Last time I wore a tie was to the races earlier this year. Did myself an Eldridge knot... That's an icebreaker with the ladies. Shame I was with my wife.

    I go through phases. Couple of guys wear them religiously though. Never seem them at work without one. 
    I know a girl married to a surgeon... Ties are what he does out of work, his hobby almost, because he can't wear one in work. Weird cunt.

    This is just an ever more convoluted plan that results in the good guys snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. Or in other terminology: a load of old bollocks.
    Just like the Boris plan to get a no deal Brexit became ever more convoluted and 'genius' in the eyes of the believers prior to the whole thing being shown to be nothing more than previously stated 'load of old bollocks'.

    Roger_Mellie got a reaction from Van Lady in Loneliness   
    Interesting and refreshing to find so many other lonely people. My own loneliness stems from being a perpetual outsider and always being on what feels like a different agenda to everyone else. Some of it is self inflicted, making a conscious effort to stay outside the swim for some reason that I've never quite fathomed.
    Right now I don't feel particularly lonely, but there was a time when it was absolutely crushing, just after I'd had my first son. I didn't have any friends with Children and the people I did know with kids I didn't like. 
    That's the other thing - I generally don't like people. I have to make an effort to see the good side. My wife is the opposite, she sees the good in everyone, she generally likes people and as a consequence has a never ending stream of people who like her back. I guess most people on here generally don't like people for one reason or another. 
    The other issue I have is that I have a sociable job - I have to build relationships. Funny thing is it can be learnt. I read a stack of books on networking and building trust and most things can be boiled down to something fairly mechanical. Eventually it becomes easy, but it's incredibly draining from an energy perspective, which makes me and I suspect many others on here classic Myers-Briggs introverts, where introversion isn't about whether you like talking to people but more about whether you gain or expend energy doing it.
    I've got a mate who walks into a room and all he sees is a room full of people to talk to, he thrives off it. Totally alien to me.
