--BUFFER--

RIGHT. I want to point out I've turned nocturnal again, no need to worry.

I also had to seize the opportunity to jump on this before it got out of hand.

Guys, your efforts into getting us as far as 3 pages have been astonishing. We won't have a problem catching the Bristols now.

So the reason I've made this 3 instead of 1 posts is to catch Post 100.

Not for glory, but to thank the lady (or whatever she prefers to be called) that made it all possible.

I think it should be her who takes us into the next era of 3 page.

Its Dani, if anyone's wondering.

Give her a day I guess. If we're not on 3 pages by then... well, fill your boots Very Happy

Anything else you want to say, you could either write it in Notepad so you don't forget it and wait for Page 3, or you could start a new thread (Its quite exciting) OR you COULD just be a bit of a bastard and steal the glory away from her. It really is up to you. But remember, we're all here to judge.

ALL THE BEST GUYS!!!

cheers

I KNOW!!!

I'm actually proper upset about that mate. I'm not happy.

I miscounted. I thought post 100 would be the last one of the 2nd page BUT IT WASN'T!!!

Oh well, there's always page 4. And there's a fair chance she wouldn't have seen it for a week anyway.

Still, I feel like a prick.

BUT we shouldn't let that overshadow the fact that the Bracknell Krue HAVE HIT 3 PAGES!!!

Done well guys cheers

Anyway, the smurfs. Well, some anonymous fella saw my profile picture and said 'If a smurf hands you a bottle of piss, don't take it out of his hand and drink it'.

Which got me thinking. Little ideas like that set me off. I've got like... 5 other Whack things that I put together over the years. Keeps me busy when I should be working Wink

It is a little bit weird, I'm not gonna hide from that fact, but when you've got nothing to do at Four in the morning, your mind does start to wander. It makes sense actually, considering that's the time your mind should be dreaming. Right?

Anyway, Congratulations Gang.

Wow, the 3rd page, I really should have been on these forums rather than revising lol

How did I miss poker talk! Shocked I'll be well up for a game at some point

I'll be moving in on the Saturday, looking forward to whatever the social turns out to be. Not really bothered what we end up doing, im sure it'll be a laugh whatever we do Very Happy

Anyway, theres my help to get us to the 4th page so we can really put Bristol in their place haha. I'm gonna make sure im up to date with the forum now, can't be missing out on all the fun Razz

I am SO... SO sorry.

It was really late in the morning (or early... what's 4 o clock count as?) and I tried to just put us over the edge, right up to the end of Page 2, with the little Business Venture I set up to stimulate conversation AFTER the 3 page crossover... and it turned out that I had miscounted how many posts were on each page.

I hope you can tell that I TRIED to set the stage for you Dani, but I fucked up. And I can only apologise for that.

You can have a 40% Share of the Smurf Project if you like?

----

Sidenote: Kieran!!! Good to have you here buddy. Take a look at the project and pass on any thoughts for ways to improve the profitabilty of said project.

----

Again, I apologise. I am not the leader here. It wasn't my place to crossover. I hope the guilt I am feeling at least in part makes up for this... travesty.




.... cheers

You know what this forum needs? An edit button.

I would like to point out that my previous comment (Page 2) 'My friends haven't even seen this yet' was tactless.

Though we haven't met face to face, I count you all as friends regardless.

Very Happy

Question: IS the language getting a bit out of hand now? I'm seeing a lot of F's

Right... Ideally I was hoping somebody else had posted by now, so it didn't look like I'm.... doing whatever. Just as long as it doesn't make me look like a weirdo.

You know what? I started on here expecting to post a couple things and just leave you all to it until July. Apparently I can't shut up even when I'm not talking... now THERE'S a crazy thought.

Ok, back to the point. I have compiled all the Whack Ltd. Projects (including the original business plan) so it makes the Smurf thing a bit easier to understand. Or makes me a bit easier to understand. Either way, as long as you get something out of it, its all cool.

Here it is Smile

Whack Ltd. Project Base

(The actual Smurf Project has been downsized since it took like an hour for me to download earlier, so its about a twelfth (?) the size now Very Happy

I don't know how far to actually distance myself from these things. I reckon it will either become a nice little talking point for a while, put a smile on people's faces.

OR

Segregate me from the Community from here on in.

Any thoughts are welcome Very Happy

What the fuck Toniy, your worse than a girl!!!! Razz You chat and chat and chat, or should that be type and type and type?! your fingers must be stumps..... at least there'll be no awkward silences at the social and your probs a good person to pop down the pub with, although, convos about smurf piss are bound to arise, and ppl may think we are weird!!


On the subject of bosses, I dont have a clue who mine is, well I think I do, but then I think I don't. Apparently, at my interview I was meant to ask for some lady called Sarah on arrival, but instead I was interviewed by some guy called Reuben, who also signed my contract, but Sarahs name was on the contract scratch confused, just a little!!!

First of all, Yes, its around 4 in the morning again.

Secondly, ONE DOWNLOAD OF THE WHACK PROJECT BASE?!?! How are we supposed to funcation as a commercial community if nobody pays attention to our business interests?

Third, What the fuck is an emoticon?

JAYA

I don't think that much has happened, just me going ballistic in the wee hours of the morning trying to develop people's interests in a growing enterprise I like to call Whack.

I didn't notice you were away so long... although I did miss the blatant mashing of your keyboard to convey your thoughts Very Happy

I didn't try to steal Dani's thunder. I TRIED to give Dani a fucking... SUPERSTORM of awesomnia. Regarding the Page 3 issue.

Don't join Bristol's forum. Ours IS better and you will only waste energy over there that you would otherwise spend here.

Well done with the poker. We'll have a game one day. I'm dubious about going with clever though. Don't read too much into that.

You can't move in on the 1st because its a Sunday. I'm... almost certain we've covered this Question

I think you could be leader if you want. But you've got to be very underhand. cheers

Lauren

With the support of our little family here, Whack Ltd will certainly realise its potential. And it will take over the world. Its already been set in motion. You and Anybody Else COULD Look At The Project Base Hiiiiiiint if they need to know more...

That wasn't directed at you by the way. Smile

You wouldn't be able to tell the difference between Smurf Piss and Snakebite. Honestly. Or Guinness and Smurf Piss. I can't be sure.

I left my last job because they wouldn't let me have a month off. I don't think I have a memory of my last day there, even though it was only a couple of months back. I think I was hoping to leave early but then some.... twat decided to order food. (I was a cook by the way, there's the connection Very Happy )

Hope you enjoy the holiday. Its nice to take a break. I'm hoping to go away in September. If my 'friends' can get their arses in gear. OH and if I can get myself out of the overdraft. And pay off some of my interest free overdraft (they've sent me the fourth letter now...)

Did you find out about working on the 2nd?

I'm not sure a collaborative leadership would work. Not to be rude, I'm sure Jaya's great to work with. She is Top6 after all. I'm just not sure we'll agree on certain policies. She seems a little faschist, don't you think?

cheers

JELLIS!!!

Tell me about it fella. Its beyond a joke. I don't know what it is.

There's the arrogant view you could take, where I think everything I think of in my head is something everybody else should hear.

There's the A.D.D. view, where I physically cannot contain my thoughts and as soon as they're in, they're straight out again.

There's also the third view. Because three is such a great number. It feels like a complete list now, and rounds it off nicely. The rule of three. Right there. In action.

I have a physically tough time keeping quiet unless I am solidly embedded in something (not concrete... I mean like a little project or something. Like my Whack's (also, I'm not twitchy)). So there will never be awkward silences. Unless I cause them. Which sometimes I do.

Which I don't think is a signal that I put my foot in my mouth. Its really more along the lines of the Law of Averages. The amount I talk... I'm bound to fuck up sooner or later.

At least this is all one post though, huh?

And yes. Smurf Piss conversations (which I assure you WILL come up buddy) will make us look weird. Until they become so fascinated by the passion we show in what we speak about, they become just as engrossed as we will be.

cheers

And Finally...

Dani

I am so... so sorry.

How can I make this up? I can't get it off my mind, seriously. We need to clear the air and make things right between us. For the good of the Top6.

You can even have your own little Wooh!!! fella:

cheers

I was worried that fucking... super post I did earlier was too much and just killed the whole topic... but you came through for me Various. Nice one.

Why can't you move in earlier... like the 30th or something?

AND

Has the goal of Page 3 being reached stopped people using Accomodation as their main source of chat?

I feel bad because I can't help but think I'm to blame. Help me out guys... Community Spirit cheers

I'm sure there will be plenty of fun to be had over the year, so dont worry about that. You are mainly missing out on any awkward social situations and the change to learn everyone's names.

On the subject of accommodation is anyone planning to bring an usual item with them? Such as a trampoline or bouncy castle? I am planning to bring my home brew kit so we can make some beer (I have made 120 pints without a single poisoning so far cheers ). Usually works out at about 40p a pint too Smile

Good effort Finn. My dad owns a brewery, so think ill bring down some of his gear so we can have a free for all drinkin session. Other than that, think my stuff will b pretty average Sad Keen to see what the rooms are like tbh, my first year halls were fucking insanely good, so these better b up to standard, and also their net had better not block any limewire etc, or there will b trouble!

Your automatically my favourite now Nick Razz Which brewery is it? I am a bit of a beer geek. Nothing beats free beer, except possibly free t-shirts with beer logo's on them.

I have low expectations of accommodation after staying in shit stuff in my first year, from what people have said Sibly isn't going to be super nice. If the internet in the halls sucks at least we only have to use it for a month then we can get a house. I did some nerdy research just now to see what speeds you can get in Reading and it seems the exchange has been unbundled and the sumo suppliers have set themselves up, which means up to 24mb broadband cheers

I always love tasting sessions drunken

I actually laughed out loud. I NEVER give the old LOL, but my god it deserves it now.

Finn mate, I'm like next door to the Gales Brewery (George Gale & Co)... Home of HSB. Awesome.

On the other subject of brewerys... I know of a micro brewery in reading we could visit... I'm sure I'm repeating myself now... I'm losing my mind.

Its gonna be a good year.

You're right... the internet better be fucking spot on. And Wireless. I scheme you see. And Nick... I gotta introduce you to Torrent mate... you'll crap your pants.

Good call on the torrents, any limewire'ing will be mocked Razz

I can't remember having HSB, doesn't mean I havn't but I don't remember it. Feel free to steal a keg or two from Gales and bring it down. NOW THATS AN IDEA! We have a large group of willing drinkers, a free weekend, and access to brewery's. That can only lead to one thing.....lets get a bloody keg! I shall set up a poll to see who might be willing to pay for a share. Although I think some beers need to be left for a couple of days before they are ready....bleh details.

Stabbing bint's is fine, as long as they really deserve it, for example if they do not let you use their internet illegally.

I am 100% sure that if anyone has an IT problem then someone at HP can fix it, they invented IT Razz Although that might not apply to iTunes because it is the work of the devil himself, a program so malicious that it melts everyone computer it touches, silly apple.

I am well impressed on the old beer making situation, that is one skill I am looking to develop. Me and my house mate thought that it was a quality money saving idea...and bout a kit from a well dodgy looking shop for £30! Went down hill from there really!

Is every1 moving in on the weekiend b4 the 3rd? I'm gunna be moving in2 Sibly on the Fri and am looking to make the most of my last few days of 'get absolutly pasted without any responsibility atall' time! Love it!

Hey there Dave(p), glad you're back mate Smile

I can see what you mean about dodgy beer making from dodgy shops etc... There's got to be a certain talent behind it surely. But then again, if Homebrew was that easy and that hassle free... wouldn't everyone be doing it? Regardless... we WILL perfect it. We are, after all... The Top6.

Ok fine, I don't ACTUALLY think you're a fella. But I could have had a lot of fun with that.

Do you know what's weird though? I thought about the thing I said about wearing dresses, and twinned that with Finn's Frankenstein thing... and thought... if we go out fancy dress... I want to go as a fairy. Or a ballerina. With Boots. Is that weird?

No harm done Various... you picture of femininity you.

Heard of black sheep?! Its one of my favourites! Very good beer, especially riggwelter (5.9% of drunkeness).

It would be a genuine tragedy if the internet was shit, I too had loads of grief in my 2nd year getting connected and I dont want to do it again, Pipex nearly sent bailiffs to my house to collect money for internet they never tried to give me.

Hoping to set off early on the friday so I can get involved straight away Smile

not weird according to todays PC day and age, however, we did just find out who the top 6 tranny is!


Fancy dress nights are quality, especially when you have a full length penguin outfit - with yellow feet and bow tie Laughing and a clown outfit collecting dust!

Re: That Comment. My email to HP regarding the Summer Ball.

Toniy (after being awake throughout the entire night) wrote:
Hi there Lucy (and Alexandra),

First of all, its a pleasure to meet you (or sort of meet you). I hope this email find you both well :-)

I am basically writing to secure a ticket for the Summer Ball. Without paying. But only for the moment. I'm assuming I'll be told how that works a little later. I haven't really got any questions regarding the event itself, the interns I've spoken to already said they loved it. I will be taking over from Jerome along with another guy this coming July, if that helps.

I would like to wear a kilt though. Its a fascination I have, and I've always wanted to and I think this would be the perfect opportunity. I am actually a 16th Scottish so that makes it ok, right? Do you think that would all be fine, assuming I can get it together?

I also got told that you aren't supposed to wear pants. My only concern there, is that people might be tempted to lift up my skirt. Kilt. And that could potentially cause all kinds of trouble. But I don't really want to break tradition. In for a Penny, in for a Pound and all that.

I appreciate this might actually sound like a joke, but I'm actually relatively serious, so if you could get back to me when you can, that would be much appreciated :-)

Thanks in advance, and all the best,

Adam

(Also, I apologise if this was not the kind of reply you were expecting...)

... That can't be good can it?

Anyway, Fletch, glad you're back posting mate, its been a while.

Finn, I will be glad to drink whatever you put in front of me buddy (with the obvious exceptions of body fluid... and lighter fluid, but after that its all go). And I'm sorry I called you a Frankenstein. I meant Zombie.

And I think HP has to employ some undead to keep up the quota. Positive Discrimination etc. How do you think I got the job? It wasn't based on Merit, let me tell you.

People should read the last bit of the keg thread, if they're a bit lost there. I wanted to merge the conversation a bit.

So I think that'll do for now.

All the best gang cheers

Quite a commitment there m8, I shall see if I can import some of the 24% microbrew beers you can get in America, see how 'glad' we are all feeling after a couple of those bad boys. The Company's Act does state that at least 2% of your employees must be dead, but only 38% of people know about it. Luckily 67% of people like pointless statistics so its ok.

That email sounds perfectly safe, definately not the ramblings of a madman who might run around the office wearing a short skirt with his lad hanging out.

Fucking right!!!

I haven't been told a thing about feebies either. I mean, it wasn't even a thought in my mind. But then again, I'm not sure I'm even a real intern...

Whittaker mate, if it all goes pear-shaped for us, we'll go thieving ok?

But keep that between us.

I've never done fancy dress either really. Well not to go out... at a halloween party once, but that was it. As you can see with the Smurf business, I like to stand out. That's a lie, I just didn't want to look like a smurf that day.

Can't argue with that can you?

Definitely, I see people are well up for robbing a bank, i think the 'top six' could become one of the most notorious bank robbing gangs of all time.... my first target would be the Natwest as I see Toniy they are also after your Knee caps. i just had a 30min bollocking off a women from Natwest for not crediting my account for the past six months, she didnít seem to understand that if you give a student over a £1000 and tell him you donít need to pay it back untill you graduate, your probably not going to see much off it again for a long, long time. Then I made a mistake of telling her that I had other accounts with other banks that my loan and wages are paid into... she wasn't impressed. She asked if I thought running up a interest free overdraft to its max then leaving it 'Dormant' was acceptable... well they offered!

Anyways, only two weeks to go!! Iím not moving into silby, but donít want to miss out on the social side of things, should be moving to Bracknell on the 1st (Sunday) just in time for the social. Jellis I would have stayed in Bournemouth with you an the boys for the month but I canít afford food at the moment and my Mom supplies it for free at home, so that kinda settled that one.

HA!!! YES!!!

They HATE me. I just had a letter through from them saying 'we want to know you are getting the best from your borrowing facilities. Please get in touch so we can offer you a different kind of lending scheme'.

HOW THE HELL can they beat an interest free ANYTHING?!?! It was their mistake. Not ours. I also got a text from them, did you? Since when are WE supposed to do all the legwork? Me, Call them? Bollocks.

The last time I spoke to them they said 'yes, are you sure you don't want a loan maybe?'

'Well... will it be interest free?'

'The rate of interest is very low, compared with other banks etc. etc.'

'Well then... No, I don't really want a loan. Because this one is interest free. That's why I haven't paid it back yet you see, because there's no rush'.

'We can take that away'.

'Oh... right, well how much to you want?'

'10% of the outstanding balance'.

'Fine'.

Still, it kept them at bay for a few months. HA! I just remembered, I told my one that I had wages going into my other account. She seemed ok with it. But then I couldn't get the word 'idiot' out of my head while I was speaking to her either. Hmm...

Do you want to be Bonnie, or Clyde?

OH, by the way fella... I was down in Bournemouth (Bomo?!?) over the weekend. FYES mate Very Happy Very pleasant establishment. Bit pricey, but that's what happens when you get dragged in by your mate who has a libido like a pumped Jack Russel Wink

Also popped into... Yates, Embassy, Bar Me, the place with Disco Inferno, and I think another place maybe. Which is why I started offering out tickets to the Intern Ball when I got back Very Happy

Don't want you to miss out on the social either buddy. Should be alright cheers

My fucking God, I think it actually was Friday.

YES IT WAS, because I was supposed to go out saturday too but we all didn't bother in the end because FRIDAY was so big (and expensive).

SHIT ME mate, how many of those £5 off coupons did you get? I got like... 9. I threw them out of my pocket when I got home to portsmouth, went to get some bacon a couple days later walking with my sister and I found one on the ground. Made me laugh but I couldn't tell her why...

Didn't do 'The Rhino Club' for a couple of reasons:

1. We thought you had to be a member
2. We thought you had to be a respectable gent
3. We got into FYEO for free Very Happy HA!!! Somehow.

Although isn't it funny how those clubs make you feel more like a gent than when you're out elsewhere. Bizarre.

Unbelievable. We were so close to walking in there.

I personally found Bomo peeps to be a little up themselves. Sort of like Chichester. I kind of like the challenge sometimes but it can be tricky, and a lot less forgiving.

Like I was speaking to one girl, and I accidentally called her sister a slut, and they didn't like that at all. Whoops Rolling Eyes

Altogether a good night though I thought.

Here's one for BOURNEMOUTH!!! cheers

And the slutty sister Very Happy cheers

HA!!!

I would also like to point out that my 100th post is coming up soon.

And so I don't fuck up again, I want to remind everyone that we are getting SERIOUSLY close to post 150 on this thread as well.

Which as you know... will take us to the elusive Page 4.

Now, since I fucked up last time and jumped head first into Page 3, I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone:

IF THE POST COUNT OF THIS THREAD IS 149 THEN WAIT FOR DANI TO POST!!!

Because post 150 will be the doorway to Page 4. Since I robbed her of the opportunity for Page 3, she deseves the honour of Page 4, am I right?

Cheers cheers
