I'd like to go to Wales some day.

My wife's son was going to drive us to Cardiff one day; but we decided to go to Canterbury instead.

You must expand on this.



viewtopic.php?t=52312#p8324153

They've been missing since Monday night. I was on holiday with my friend and they were the only shoes I took.

I'm quite certain there's a conspiracy.


About 10 years ago(I'm not really 31) I was doing IT for a call centre and had to go to a management party thing at the boss' fancy apartment.
One of the lady managers couldn't find her shoes when it was time to leave and I was going to be sharing a taxi with her and her sister, we searched everywhere, not to be found.
I gave her a piggyback as I was drunk and we were friends, we took the lift down and were approaching the taxi outside when we saw her shoes on the ground, quite clearly thrown from the balcony of the penthouse.

it freaked us out, but during the next week I learnt that a male manager there fancied her and had hidden her shoes so she would stay and obviously fall in love with him, on seeing us stagger out he had panicked and chucked them out the window.

Most strange this human behaviour.

2 or 3 days in the mitherland, we are brothers.


Where is mitherland?

Seems interesting. It maybe near Llandysiliog?

Mither is mother in scots.

The big city. Cardiff is actually nice, especially the old market and arcades. But I am not a city or towns person so I find the nightlife in a city or town to be a bit of the opposite to what I prefer. I am on edge in a town or city at night. Put me in a field or somewhere like that and I will be ok if I roughly know where I am and I can see just enough to see the terrain.

I've stayed for a few days in Llandudno, Aberystwyth and Porthmadog. Also went to football matches in Wrexham and Cardiff in the 1970s.

There seem to be a lot of sheep in Wales (more than humans?). I recall there were some strange goats in Llandudno as well.

Wales is mostly hills that wish to be mountains and men who look at women wishing they were sheep.

My nearest big city. Though it is not that far away, I think I was about 14 before I first went there and I was following other cyclists as part of a cycling club.

Some bits of it are nice. For towns, I like places like Llandeilo.

Goats? Mountain goats! :D

Porthmadog. The town where four seperate railway companies meet. I call Porthmadog my second home. :)

was from a film.

Greyo: Dylan Thomas called Swansea "an ugly, lovely town".
Terry: I'd call it... a pretty shitty city.
Greyo: Dylan Thomas didn't do as much f*****g cocaine as you, did he?

My neighbour went cycling with Dylan when they were in their youth to the end of the Gower near Swansea. I think they got stranded and stayed the night on Worms Head (An amazing area of land only accessable at low tide). My neighbour leant him his jumper.
I have not seen that neighbour for a while as he died over a decade ago, but his wife is still alive and often calls in here.
I like Laugharne and often go there. I cycled there once. Actually cycled to Pendine and back. While passing through Laugharne on the way down, I saw part of my bicycle overtake me down the road as my rear mech decided to fall apart. I didn't find the part. I was able to ride without a cog in the mech to get me back home. I still have that bike. My 531C racing bike. (Raleigh).

People thinking antisocial and asocial are the same thing, including here on WP.

Asocial - the lack of motivation to socialize.

Antisocial - actions that harm or lack consideration for the well-being of others.

A person can be asocial but NOT antisocial.
