Stick, would you like to instigate this thread then?

If a couple more people agree, then I will.
Pip, you seriously up for getting more tickets to ensure a prize? Or shall we just go on the assumption that if someone wins them they'll donate them to the poll winner(s), or what?

Sure.. As long as noone shouts at me. There should be three more auctions after this current one.

I don't see why I can't donate my second ticket if I win - all my first choices are on that list, so it saves me choosing.

May the best person win, and be this close.



Is that a big organ or a small pianist?

thanks alot for that. Smile yep, it's getting to quite a high number now.. It's just a major major pain in the arse that I can't send texts from here coz if I could I most certainly would be.. I guess just as everyone else, its gonna be a case of keeping everything crossed and hoping for the best..

No, don't worry, I don't want to look like Mr Bowie, but he is quite foxy. So if one of you wants to look like him, that'd be good.

I don't like it. It isn't fair on thickies like me. I'm not particularly funny or clever, and as such, don't stand a chance of winning. I don't want to be in a popularity contest. I don't think I could take the rejection.

If I win, I'll be taking myself and a person of choice. I may then be open to a bit of bribery.

I'll bloody well shout at you. PIP! NO! You're not an endless vat of money. You've got someone in the gig already. Leave it at that. I mean this in the sweetest way possible. I know you probably don't feel this way, but it feels to me like you're being taken advantage of. You know I worry.

Awww.. Thankyou, but I don't mind, honest.

Someone can only take advantage of you, if you let them... and I wouldn't. I honestly don't mind in situations like this. Besides - I have selfish reasons in that anyone who gets to go to the gig as a result of me, HAS to provide full reviews and possibly pictures to the bulletin board.

That's the deal!! (or else)

You're already paying for two people to go, so this has been achieved. So stop it, you flaming nutcase! Do I have to come round there and kick your ass???

She's always right at the front of the queue too! Very Happy (Hi Paula!)

I have made some text entries, I'll let you all know if I'm successful as it's too far for me to go and if I win I'll be donating them to you lot Smile

I always equate people with their avatar. It's rather frightening, as I refuse to believe that Tom walks around with a bag on this head or that If... is a pyromaniac!

I really need a new avatar Smile

A mailing list I'm on once did an 'ID Parade', where each member uploaded seven pictures of people, and everyone guessed which was the person. Some people picked mates, snaps, pictures of the interweb etc...It was brilliant..So funny to see how people were perceived by their words..

The vast majority guessed correctly, which was a bit weird. Some of the wrong ones were hilarious.

That's a good idea - except a lot of us here know what each other look like, which is a bugger.

Hell no.. I was just saying that's what happened once, and it was funny!

Incidentally - I strangely have no problem whatsoever imagining 'If...' as a pyromaniac.

EDIT: Besides, that new avatar is an almost perfect representation, so I don't need to bother.

Man, I must cut down on those fags.

Apart from that, I am the dead spit of my avatar, and exist in a magical world of hand-drawn animation.

Only a couple of days to go to text, winners should be announced by Sunday... Everyone's forgetting about this one, with all the Edinburgh excitement though!
