  1. Name your price, guys, it's pay day!
  2. Glad you liked it, Jason!
  3. Algy's Dream It's a long time since I've read this delightful short story, so I was pleased to see it in Dude's Picks. It's a great, uplifting, coming-of-age story set in the British Boarding School world that's very familiar to me. Highly recommended. (The Story, not the Boarding School...)
  4. 😄 I was only using that sentence as an illustration of the usage of the word 'proven'. I should have put 'Darwin's' in place of 'The' at the beginning.
  5. Thank you Camy, that's amazing. I've known that poem since studying it at school, but always found it difficult. Michael Sheen brought it to life, made its meaning evident, even obvious.
  6. No it's not your fault, it's my fault. Everything's my fault - the cat told me so.
  7. In the US, the mail is delivered by the US Postal Service. In the UK, the post is delivered by Royal Mail.
  8. (It turns out that both vagueries and vagaries are real words, with similar meanings, so that both, or either, are appropriate for the title of this thread!) It's amazing that sometimes the most peculiar spelling or pronunciation conventions can be so entrenched that I don't even notice them. I only recently noticed how strange is the verb prove. A scientist must prove her theory, a prosecuting counsel must prove the guilt of the defendant, bread dough is left to prove overnight. In British English it's pronounced so that the o sounds like the oo in food. It gets odder: the past participle is not proved, it's proven - and this time the o sounds normally, like owe. "Case not proven!" barked the judge. The theory of Evolution has still not been proven after a hundred years of acceptance. And there's a noun form the word, too, which is proof. And suddenly we have two o's so that the oo sound makes sense, but now the v has changed to an f. Language never ceases to fascinate.
  9. Good old Monty Python. I think the only actual gay participant in that particular GMSUFU parade was the officer, who calls it 'silly' and 'a bit suspect' at the end. Oh, the irony...
  10. I think I had some contact with him, but can't find any trace of it. Was he part of the WWGSS Yahoo Group? I understand Yahoo Groups is no more so that doesn't help.
  11. Cats always know best.
  12. Predatory Shower Curtain Under the shower stream Soaping myself I bend just a little And that’s all it takes. The touch on my arse, So gentle, so creepy, Clammy and clinging Unbidden, unyielding. Out of the shower, I’m towelling dry. But the moment I bend I feel contact so sly. Such a tender caress Might be welcome indeed Were the toucher more man Or the touchee less me. Bruin Fisher
  13. Can someone please explain to me how this 'Gay for Pay' works? I've been doing it my whole life for free, ... like an idiot.
