Hello from Subversion...

Post by Subversion »

47 - lives in Bedfordshire - lives with partner - and ageing Yorkie Terrierist - no kids - works on the admin side of medicine. First came to Egypt in 1992 - last came in 2005. Lack of available terrierist sitter precludes me visiting in the near future.

Other than that...

"No fixed abode" - I have no hardened political affiliations, professionally I've always been a jack of all trades. I'm not an academic, I'm driven by instinct and observation. I have no real hobbies - I have the concentration span of a canary. The only thing I do with any regularity is smoke too much, eat too much - occasionally I drink too much.

I have the propensity to be both selfish and lazy , as well as arrogant and opinionated. I am also candid and honest about my thoughts and feelings - very open to having these challenged - I care about many things and laugh as much as I can.

If I have made a career out of anything, it is out of being Lil Miss Marmite!

In terms of this forum - I love exploring ideas through discussion and seeing new thoughts emerge. I'm very happy with the concept of challenging the idea - not so about the propensity to challenge the individual (though I agree there are times when a virtual lump hammer.... ).

I lurked the forum for a long time before joining - I've seen a lot of interesting debate killed off by the descent into personal spats. If anyone feels like telling me what I am/am not - please do it in my email/pm box or if you must do it in open forum put it in general rants and discussions!

I like people who can see their own frailty and embrace it - I don't like people whose bitterness clouds the good in them.

And if you haven't made up your mind about me yet - I suppose I really ought to mention that I'm Welsh!

Thanks for having me!

You missed out that you either cannot count, or you've recorded your birthday incorrectly!

Thanks TB!

Its all a ploy - I lie upwards about my age because if someone thinks I look ok for 48 they might forget the comparative that I look absolutely haggard for 47!

Morning Subversion, What nice weather we are having in this country right now.Sorry to read that the lack of a dog sitter prevents you going to Luxor.I am an ancient cretin loving my motorbike but am one hundred % honest.If you wish to visit Luxor soon and have a spare room I would willingly dog sit for you no charge.I do not smoke nor drink.So the offer is there for you to think about.

Gordon that is a really generous offer! You might not drink or smoke now but after a week of the winky I guarantee you would! Truthfully he is almost 15 and not long for this world - I just couldn't leave him .

But none the less thank you and I look forward to rabbiting with you on here!

Thank you Phantom! I'm not sure where I fit in the grand scheme of things - I just keep trying to impose myself on the world!
