Re: Nottingham

I'll bite - who or what is Brian Clough and why is there a statue in his hono(u)r?

Probably has something to do with football since you don't have dwarf folk heroes anymore.

Re: Nottingham

The important thing is, I'm buying lace gloves somewhere. Anywhere. The more I think about them, the more I find them totally necessary to my life.

I wish the Robin Hood statue looked like Kevin Costner.

Re: Nottingham

I couldn't figure out what York does today other than cater to tourists. There were only small shops and rowing students. Plus the train thing we didn't go to.

Re: Nottingham

Maid Marion Way, Shakespeare Street and Milton Street?

Low Pavement and High Pavement?

God I've missed England.

Also, I am 90% sure there was an '80s club in York also called Reflex. What this means, I'm not sure.

Re: Nottingham

Nottingham seems to be a land full of wonderments. I am (well) excited about getting into adventures!

Is it better than York? 'Cause I loved York.

Re: Nottingham

What, pray tell, are the Galleries of Justice?

And I do plan on at least looking at one Robin Hood-related bit of nonsense while I'm there. I'm trying to keep your quaint, dying folk traditions alive as best I can.

Re: Nottingham

White gloves, Sam! White gloves! Dainty ones to wear while sipping your ubiquitous tea! I'll call ahead to make sure it's still there. I am serious about going and will probably cry if it's closed. Is the Museum of Costume and Textiles still there? Nottingham may be the greatest place in Britain if ...

Re: "Project Runway," make it work.

But this season as a whole is so awful! There is so much SUCK this year and so many crap personalities, I hardly watch it anymore. I'll catch a rerun, but it's by no means the "wheel the TV into the bathroom so I can watch it while I bathe" PR of seasons past. The drag queen episode was good. I'll g...

Re: General Chat About Films And That

I'd like to add David Tennant. I forgot he was in the Goblet one. I would also do whoever plays young Tom Riddle. And I guess Ralph Finnes, too. I'd probably have a chance with him since it's probable he fucks dowdy Australian stewardesses. I'm like at least two steps hotter than dowdy stewardess.

Re: TV Quick: talk about things on telly succinctly

Fucking Chris Brown! That dude rewrote the jingle for Doublemint Gum and released it as a single before it was announced it was indeed a commercial. And it was hit! The chorus literally had the lines "Double your pleasure / double your fun!" They're all whores, each and every one of them. The only p...

Re: clothes

HA! Wait to you get to the states for sure. The dresses range anywhere from $75 - $300ish. They have a couple of stretchy options, but not that many. Banana Republic def. has a 'business cocktail' kind of vibe, but there are total hidden gems in there. I almost bought a $75 hat in there the other da...
