  1. Idle Thumbs Camping

    On the 12th, the best place to go is full of a massive gang of canoeists. We are free the other times though. It does depend on how many there are of you though I guess
  2. Idle Thumbs Camping

    We are full for the bank holiday weekend in August (26th on), and will struggle to fit a lot of tents in on the weekend of the 12th.

    At the very least you should sit him down, with her not there obv., in a bar and try to discuss it like adults. Ask him if she (or you) could pay a greater proportion of the bills, would that mollify him? If not, what would it take to make it easier for everyone to live together. Make it clear that you are in a difficult position as you want them both in your life, and if at all possible you would like to try and resolve the issue before it gets too much further out of hand. If he remains unreasonable, are you in a position to move into a flat with her (if you're ready). The lease coming up in a month is actually pretty handy, as it will provide a relatively easy out should you want to.

    These sorts of arguments crop up all the time when 2 ppl are on the bills, but a significant other of 1 flatmate is always over. Try to resolve it amicably by suggesting some bills are split 3 ways, or that you accept more than half the bills, say 60-70 % (or whatever you think is reasonable). It might have gone too far, BUT at least if you make this offer it will give some clue if your bro has some other problem with her (apart from the insult) beyond an idea that she is just freeloading.

    I'm enjoying Transmetropolitan right now (even though it's more Warren Ellis Stuff).

    Currently have about 3 electric points left for bank holiday weekend, and loads of space left for the rest of the month. Shall I hold one spot for you just in case your leave arrives on that date? How long will the rota folk take d'you think? What I'm thinking is - you have a trailer tent do you not? - is put you on the main site. If other peeps decide to come in tents, will put all the tents up in the 'canoe' area (where campfire and noise is possible), and then you can shuttle back and forth as necessary. Will put you as close as poss. to the canoe area.

    Yeh, built it, but had to take it to bits for the move. I estimate that it took about 70 hours.

    Liquorice sends him loopy, either because he loves it so much, or there's something in it that affects him.

    I loved this when it came out, but only saw a few of series 5 and lost the thread. Ignored 6. So - have started from series 1, and am loving it all over again! Silvio is as cool as ever, and Paulie as big a cock as ever.

    That looks like an interesting book. I might get it.

    Yeh, but in Lucas' defence Star Wars' diminishing returns is prolly more than most IP gets to make at their respective peaks. I don't like it, but hell, realistically I would prolly do the same.

    I'm up for giving it another go. You're on Central TIme though aren't you, so might prove tricky...
