Why haven't I come across you before?

James popped by at about 10.30 on Friday night. He was steaming. I was completely sober but it didn’t take much encouragement to get me to follow him to the pub where we joined a few friends. Amongst the people at the table was someone I’d not seen before. That’s quite unusual for the small, incestuous Nottingham gay scene where all are fuck-in-laws and, if you don’t actually know the person, you almost always recognise the face.

‘Why haven’t I come across you before?’ was said perfectly innocently.

I couldn’t understand why everyone packed up laughing. It had to be explained to me.

Duh!!!!

Oh my word, the saddest part is it is something I would say, I have often been known to open my mouth only to change feet!!

I was about to ask *you* to explain ... then I got it. :) I guess I could use a drink myself. I got a bottle of Jameson's for Mother's Day. What do you think that means? :)

Could have been worse, his response might have been: "Bastard... you don't remember me?"

I know about small-town gay scenes - I live in one. I actually know the Derby/Nottingham scene quite well... *brings back bad memories* gahhh!

caroline: leave my end out of this - it gets me into trouble!

qenny, rob, xmichra: I'm glad to have been able to enrich your vocabularies.

alan: some say you can never have enough friends. True, but it's good having an extended family.

andrea: all the best artists have a vice or two so it means you are a great artist and your sons know it.

saddle up: why do you know this gay scene quite well? did you used to live here? when are you visiting again?

angel: you're not really an angel, are you?

babs: there aren't any more details to give about this story. And I won't even add 'alas' as he wasn't someone I'd actually like to cum (as opposed to come) over. As for not being able to read you at work, it has something to do with the internet filtering (read censoring) that goes on there. Some sites are completely closed off as they are determined to contain 'unsuitable material'. New sites are scanned for such material and, I assume, are added to that list if they are deemed to contain material considered unsuitable for corporate eyes. You seem to have been elevated to one of the undesirables! That's a good thing right? Or just something you always knew? :-) For me it's a bad thing as it means I can't read you there.

Those IT guys just didn't like a bitch in the mist which is similar to Gorillas in the Mist, oh well sorry. I figured it was something to that effect.

This can't work in reality, that is exactly what I suppose.
