How do you fancy a long weekend, at the beginning of April? I'm going
out to Ace's place, and my regular board buddy has dropped out. I'll
be taking it very easy, and haven't been for two years myself, so
you'd not have to worry about remembering how to ride.


Hey, thanks, I'd love to! We'll bring the dogs too. I think I can swing
three weeks, since it's such a good season.


Heh. You can stay in the cellar then, OK?

(What's with the subject line, btw? I almost missed this!)


Who looks at such things? (Apart from youm, clearly). You should know
by now that UKRM doesn't follow subjects like that.

Quite so. And if he's that hard up he can just do the cooking to avoid
eating out.

Whether we join him for dinner is another matter altogether.

Ho hum, mebbe next year.


You say that every year...


He needs a better excuse, for sure. A weekend's boarding for, what,
around 150 notes? Where's the problem?


A few hundred notes here or there isn't the issue.
Don't think I'm not deeply tempted, but no.

Thanks for the thought, anyway.

Heh, love to.

checks thread title
Unfortunately this effin' credit crunch has ****ed my income stream
up, good and proper. Looks like I'll be looking for work of some
sort or another, to stop eating into my capital. Don't think a
boarding trip atm 'works' for me in that sense.

Better and better. I'll bring a corkscrew.

It was part of the joke, but never mind.
