one month passes...

im

look its not your business what im doing tbh

but im in a nook in a good old man boozer in a shady end of dublin 1

and theres a gang of labouring miners sons in the corner and theyre speaking half english half elvish and every ten minutes one breaks into song and they all join in for a few minutes

what a wonderful sub race

BSC Joan Baez (darraghmac), Friday, 7 February 2020 16:58 (one year ago) link

there appears to be a lark

a lark, mind

where every thirty minutes the elf with the hairclip upon his person pays for the round

ok it may be 15 mins these elves can put em away

the hairclip is currently attached to the shoelace of a florid hirsute giant, they all join in to count down the last ten seconds while patting themselves like self-policing airport security, its all quite sweet

BSC Joan Baez (darraghmac), Friday, 7 February 2020 17:37 (one year ago) link

one of them jostled me coming back from a smoke, i accepted his apology but gestured him close and discreetly informed him that the next time it happened myself and my comrade would take the twelve of them out and give them a damned good thrashing and he has been roaring it to the pub since

but we will

BSC Joan Baez (darraghmac), Friday, 7 February 2020 17:40 (one year ago) link

florid hirsute giant

Sounds like a keeper! Go easy on 'em D.

I've never knowingly known a welsh person

frederik b. godt (jim in vancouver), Friday, 7 February 2020 17:52 (one year ago) link

What? Is this one of those things like never meeting a person from Leitrim?

My current workplace has only ever had one Welsh people but tons of Scottish people. Come to think of it, they were never there at the same time...

hyds (gyac), Friday, 7 February 2020 17:56 (one year ago) link

i've been in the presence of a welsh person, like sat next to one on a plane or in the pub or whatever. but i've never had a colleague, pal, friend of a friend etc. that was welsh

frederik b. godt (jim in vancouver), Friday, 7 February 2020 17:58 (one year ago) link

clannish enough, the welsh

BSC Joan Baez (darraghmac), Friday, 7 February 2020 18:14 (one year ago) link

My first girlfriend was sort of Welsh

Todd Phillips, party auteur (Noodle Vague), Friday, 7 February 2020 18:19 (one year ago) link

did you frag some elves

otm into winter (rip van wanko), Friday, 7 February 2020 20:05 (one year ago) link

me personally no, nv otoh may have, im not up to speed on the vernacular

the fella with me was telling me about the time he drunkenly bought a horse with his mates and it won at cheltenham, absolute ealing stuff

BSC Joan Baez (darraghmac), Friday, 7 February 2020 20:39 (one year ago) link

1st Place: £351,688

i wonder if this exceeded the price of the horse plus necessary maintenance ans various overhead, i would reckon so, that is a cool story

otm into winter (rip van wanko), Friday, 7 February 2020 23:42 (one year ago) link

depends on the race I'd think, that sounds like a lot of prize money

Todd Phillips, party auteur (Noodle Vague), Friday, 7 February 2020 23:49 (one year ago) link

prize money in question was a fraction of that, tho not pittance

but they all backed it at between 50-33/1, literal shutters down in all the local bookies

they made out like bandits and partied with liz2 in the winners tent afterwards

afterwards, the syndicate had an offer of ten times what theyd paid for the horse,but it came to blows at the meeting and alas all fell apart. was sold for a mere twice original cost the next year and yerman still isnt talkin to his uncle he sez

BSC Joan Baez (darraghmac), Saturday, 8 February 2020 00:13 (one year ago) link

its better told over a few pints with elves singing and japing in the background, the ra got involved, his father in law lumped on and they both agreed not to tell the respective mrss, hes still drinking it, etc

Stewie on FG said someone ran like a Welshman in pejorative fashion. How does a Welshman run?

ill fuckin put a paste on those (Neanderthal), Saturday, 8 February 2020 01:21 (one year ago) link

he looks like a drawing from a gorillaz album cover i am not welsh btw

gbx, Saturday, 8 February 2020 05:27 (one year ago) link

I've never knowingly known a welsh person

Can be difficult as lots of them don't even sound Welsh. Every time I come across a famous person I didn't know was Welsh I think about having a Secretly Welsh thread but, right now, the only one I can think of is John Prescott.
