Our very own countdown thread!

Otherwise known as the Games Room, think of this as a subforum of the social club reserved just for sociable icebreaker games. Beware - they can be addictive!

I was having a "senior moment" Fia, fine now that I've cracked a bottle of home brew lager.

G'night all, especially Alan H, as it is still officialy "night" Not some pseudo scientific deffinition of night, ie, it's dark so it must be night.
No seriously, a good night to one and all :smile:

OK so kick me out, but I just had to put somewhere that the real Countdown on Channel 4 is getting historical at 3pm (to 4.15) today with the departure of Carol Vorderman and Des O'Connor
OK - carry on.

Hi Guys - sorry for being away for so long. Long story and might have a rant when I get time. Anyway - Carol Vordeman was paid £1.2MILLION a YEAR!!!!!!!! For what??? When this was reviewed and she was offered a salary of ONLY £120k per year she took the huff and left.

Now, I know that the problem here is the ridiculously large salary that she had in the first place but she earns all sorts from advertising and stupid 'detox' books so she cannae be short of a bob or two.

I'll save my sympathies I think.............. :cross:

Hi Beki and welcome back. Glad you did :laughter: n't have time for a rant!
Now I've put the smilie in the wrong place. :sad2:
Anyway - you did not put the right number (ha ha) and you assumed I had a thing for CV or even sympathy for her which is not so - I just wanted to say it was a bit of a milestone for us oldies who watch the rubbish to be going after 26 years. Bye :smile:

Oops :redface:

Very embarassing for an accountant to get the figures wrong.......

I'm totally shattered this evening. Three sessions of netball this week including two friendly matches against other teams and I am feeling sore just about everywhere it is possible to be sore! I'm also sporting a keeker from being elbowed in the eye last night which is very attractive - not!

I wouldn't worry about it Beki, Nick is always doing it :smile:
Aberdeen Angus is good for the keeker (I'm told) (black eye, for the linguistically challenged)

It's nice to know I'm in such lovely company, Beki!

Alan, I'll try to make amends by suggesting that the number now should actually be:

997,938

Agreed?

Near enough for me but beware possibly pernicious penguins...

...where is that bird? Assumed s/he has a weird www alert function at any mention of the breed... perhaps it's too cold on camp penguin to put flightless wing to keyboard...

Good shot, Parahandy, but in concentrating on your marksmanship, you've got the number wrong!

Was there ever a closed season :D

However, we may be being unfair. Our friend from camp penguin may be a thoroughly nice chap/ess for all we know. And it can be seen as rather sweet how s/he keeps popping up causing harmless mayhem...
