The adventures of the young and often lucky-as-hell Curly on his way to bring down the evil dictator, locate the buried nazi gold and ultimately come face to face with the Holy Grail - Nelly Furtado. On the way I'll be perfecting my David Seaman impression and meeting as many people as possible. After that I'll go home for a nice cup of tea, and perhaps some cake too. I'm trying to give up tea but wouldn't object to a cup if a nice old lady offered - that would just be rude, wouldn't it?

What's an acceptable length of time that you can make a pun or a joke about something that another person has just said?
Person no. 1 : My dad is an avid gardener, the other day he was outside painting his new fence green. He tripped over a rake, fell over and as he tried to break his fall he stuck his hand straight in the tin of paint!
Person no.2 : I suppose you could say that your Dad really does have Greenfingers then!
Say it quick enough, and you'll get a chuckle... but leave it until a few seconds later and people will invariably laugh at you for taking so bloody long, no matter how funny it might have been.
If I know that there's a joke somewhere, my internal 'Punnernator' (?) goes into overdrive and for a few seconds my mind will be completely occupied with trying to crack a joke - sometimes I time it right and I'll get a laugh, other times I just know that I'm too late and I'll shut up (unless I'm drunk, when I'll tell you whether you like it or not).
Your thoughts please.

Blonky meet up vol.III for Curly.
Hello everyone, apologies for not posting recently,I've been über busy running around and generally not playing on the Playstation.
There's been a hark back to the old days here in Cardiff as I have actually spent many of my weekends outside of the city itself ... mainly in Southampton, but I've also been on trips to Oxford and to Reading amongst other places.
I'm sure I'll update properly sometime this year, but to tide you over - here's a picture from last weekend in London with Afe, Mrs.Afe, Huw, Monica, Deanne and Will. I didn't have a camera, so this is the best representation of what actually went on...
This is the third time that I've gone to London to meet strange people from the interweb, and it was another fine success after the other two that Huw had organised.
The next day, I took a walk from Kentish Town, through Camden and all the way to Warren Street. I made every effort to avoid the tube. On previous visits to London Village I'd used the underground system to get around and as a result missed everything that was going on above ground. In doing that, I discovered a great way to get around London without bumping into the millions of other people...
I made another amazing discovery that day, how to survive a 3 hour bus journey with a hangover... Ensure that you know loads of people who will recognise you, offer you a seat, tell you jokes, lend you their shades and keep you hydrated with their water!
