first place i got was a 2bed flat just off rush green road. Stamp duty exempt area. Sold it 11 months later for £12k profit.

which was all profit, because i brought it on a 100% interest only mortgage.

got a new place on a 100% interest only mortgage. Stamp duty paid for by employer because they made me move.

If I sold not I reckon I would have made about £30k clear.

That is essentially profit. Had I been renting i would have ben paying rent, and not accumulating what is essentially a deposit on the next place.

Of course the catch is, the next place is rising in price as well.

So actually I am fucked.

Brighton marathon, etape du tour, blenheim tri and west london (henley actually) tough mudder are already in the diary.

I know some of you lot love this stuff. Whos in for what?

fucking love acid eiffel.

Listening to some of those takes me back to my first proper night out. Billy Nasty at the Zap in 96 or something like that. Didn't have a fucking clue about life the universe or fucking anything.

Brutal techno.

It's a wonder I didn't grow dreads that night.

ETC you are an absolute mentalist and I am sure could single handedly keep most of the psychisatrists in Essex in gainful employment for years to come. It;s great to have you here.

pork medallions with cheese and leek sauce

Slovenia did nothing for me. It's quite brutal.

the puns are beginning to thin out like leaves on an autumnal tree.

Instead we are getting weak DJ based puns in place.

Can we get anymore out of the woodwork to get the 3 pager?

Can;t believe ed would try and use this thread to palm off such terrible puns but it's good to see the board branching out from the usual nonsense.

Rooting for a 10 pager

cant get this out of my head at the moment:

Is answering phones IT now?

I had to wait in the queue for my all to be answered by the customer business service analyst or some other such nonsense. They then had to give me a job number and pass me to the back end office.

All to reset a password.

The mumsnet penis beaker is also quite funny.

put people to sleep.

Fly poorly people round the word in planes. Sometimes whilst they are asleep.

Sit trackside at silverstone in case bad things happen. Generally they don't but i get to see a lot of fast cars.

I love it.
