10,000 posts. A retrospective/tribute

edited December 2022 in The bottom bracket
Slightly premature but as I'm not getting much work done today I expect post count and thread to overlap presently.

A heavy hitter and now with a post count to match. From first "Hi" to last, almost every post a balletic tour de force of jaunty eloquence. A dazzling wordsmith whose glittering star shines so ferociously that even the most insignificant forum members can bask in my reflected glory.

I will be re-posting requested favourites from my 1000 for a limited period only.

    I thought your 659th post captured the essential qualities of a bon viveur and elite metropole such as yourself - and your use of the word 'Knockers' was sublime. :lol:

    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    What was your favourite post, by the way, and are there any posts you wish you'd made but didn't? :D

    I'm slightly envious of Mumsnet and counting

    I had a post of the day last week but I'm far too modest to re-post. Requests only.

    Never thought I would see the day when a 'Love machine' like yourself would admit to being slightly premature. :lol:

    Don't boost his ego YP, he is a tw4t just like me.

    My 1000th was uneventful. My 5000th will be uneventful. My 10,000th will be very spooky 'cos i'll probably be dead by then.

    I can't wait for the Hollywood film on Pinarello and Seanoconn provisionally entitled "C0ck and C0cker".

    Having been rumbled by Ballysmate I'm off back to my Water Margin to harvest my beansprouts, water chestnuts and prawn crackers.

    Ahhh, Mumsnet. I remember it well. It still makes me smile to this day.

    I'm off to drink more wine in honour of the few of us who dared to take on the rest. Yossina, you were a sage.

    10,000 approaching for me. Pressure is on to think of something profound (i.e. not like any of the previous 9,999). Alternatively I could possibly reflect how many hours of my life I've wasted on here and close my account before the milestone is reached!

    Couldn't think of anything so it ended up being a fairly boring comment in pro race, entirely in keeping with all my other utterances.

    Bit of a let down. Ballsymat has only a few to go to 1000, our hopes rest on him. :lol:

    Expectations are high........

    Sorry did I say high, I meant low. What's lower than low? Rock bottom? Ground level perhaps

    Evening

    Unfortunately (or it could be fortunately) I never made it to Bulgaria - TDV is there as we speak, I'm currently trying to teach a bunch of crap hats rifle drill.

    "No, you don't lick that bit" Or that bit. And definitely not that bit. And that shiney bit is sharp, so don't lick that either."

    How you doin' anyway? (said in a Joey Tribiani kinda way).
