Naturally.

I'm a tentative Liverpool fan, tentative mainly because I am new to football, about 5 years of on-and-off interest - possibly the furthest a football 'fan' can be from an anorak. My interest in football, strangely, comes from computer games, specifically Football Manager, where I managed, erm, The Robins, took them eventually to the Premier League, but never made an impression.

And I haven't now had a tv for 3 years, so, I'm that kind of Liverpool 'fan'.


Interesting. I've never heard of anyone becoming a football fan that way.

@Purveyor

Well, a friend of mine is/was a football fan (MU) and computer gamer; and sometimes I'd watch matches with him because we played EA Sports FIFA together. Then he introduced me to Football Manager, etc.

"I'm told you are a writer"

It's just thoughts, really.

Back to the beard: I am thinking of following Crooked and cleaning the upper lip, but I worry that, given my, erm, skin tone, it will enhance my Saracen looks. When I was a child I used to weep at the sight of such men - clean upper lips, chin wisps - who tended to be of the evangelical Saracen sorts, generally severe in temperament and outlook.

I'd also like to shape my goattee into a sharper profile, a la Lenin, but it is difficult. I always end up going too far on one side, then adjust the other side, going too far there, etc., then I have to shave it all off. Any help in this regard? I was thinking of drawing lines in felt tip to guide my shaving.

I don't currently have an employer but my last one just used to take the piss out of my beard.

Well, crooked, I think you look great. You have a nice face. If it were mine, I'd braid that longish bit of beard at the bottom and put in beads. Because I don't give a toss what other people think. :P

Congrats on getting a photo with REG himself!! Wow - that must have been amazing. I love the five or ten minutes after something like that, when the blood is rushing around in your head and your thumbs go weird, and you're like "did that really just happen"? You totally framed that photo and hung it up, didn't you?
... followed by yet another anecdote about his sensitive crimes in a punt with a chap called Norman, who had red hair and a book of poetry stained with the butter drips from crumpets.

just had a lovely walk down memory lane re-reading this thread. I miss the good old days; feeling rather nostalgic today. :|

Ah, yes -- the pre-Facebook days: when people were on here at least once a day. Now it's once a year.
