    Things You Don't "Get"

    Totally agree, it's sad. The only thing about it is that it takes a lot of skill to 'age' them, and some are pretty realistic. I bought a Les Paul Traditional in Texas and I will never clean it, patina man, patina!

    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I lived in Clapham for two years 1981-1982. Lived in a squat and worked in the West End, in the wine trade. I would do it all again tomorrow, and if I could afford it I would probably live there now.

    Lost my virginity this week. Got the rectal exam due to possible prostatitis. My farts are a good fifth lower now.

    First Memory

    For Bickster. Earliest memory for me is my Mum letting us kids into the front room (we were never allowed in there, apart from Christmas/special occasions) to watch The Beatles perform 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'' on 'Thank Your Lucky Stars'. I think.

    Someone called me Charlie once....once.

    'Irregardless.' What does that actually mean? OK, I understand 'normalcy' and the need to have their own word for something that there is already a word for, but I've heard Americans on two or three occasions say 'irregardless'. Do they mean 'regardless' or do they mean 'with regard to' ? (as in a double negative word). I really don't get 'irregardless'.

    People who tell me: "I haven't slept for a week", or; I haven't eaten or drunk anything for a week". Is that right sir?, you really are superhuman.

    The VT Musicians Thread

    Bought myself a Fender Blues Junior II yesterday. 15 watts of pure valve lurve. I wasn't sure how my LP would feel going through it, but it is a monster.

    Watched the Jamie Carragher spitting incident. What kind of a man spits in a young girl's face?

    Or Heparin, or there are a few new anti-coagulants that don't require the kind of monitoring that Warfarin does. Most places use these now.

    Damn Chindie. Take it easy. Thank goodness you went to hospital when you did.

    Good news Chindie. Expect you will have a lung scan later to rule out a clot. Hopefully it's a bit of an infection that can be cleared up. Not surprised you went straight to Resus. Get well soon old chap.

    Seek help Chindie. Even if it is 'just' a chest infection, you will need antibiotics.

    If it's that bad go to A&E Chindie. Together with the aching leg you are right it screams Pulmonary Embolism. If I triaged you, you would be in the immediate stream with your symptoms and history.

    What is your experience of mental health?

    I think he might be saying that when you get through it you feel strong. I dunno, but my reaction was similar to those expressed.
