For the sake of posterity here are the arrival times at this board of some of the people who joined in the early days and are still around at the moment: (apologies to anyone I've missed)

AnnaStrophic: Wed Mar 15 13:19
Jackie: Wed Mar 15 21:38
Emanuela: Thu Mar 16 01:32*
Shanks: Thu Mar 16 04:44
JMH: Wed Mar 22
Tsuwm: Mon Apr 3

Looks like I was after you Shanks but Anna and Jackie beat us to it!

[*See, I knew I'd miss someone!
Emanuela - looks like you pipped Shanks & I to the post,
Anu was, of course, (thanks Jazz) first of all]

Mais non! deewana is both aesthetically pleasing and very apt. I would be honoured to be so called. Make me some fresh jilebis and it's a done deal.

My culinary skills, on a scale of 1 to 10, run into the negative numbers, but come to London and we shall trawl Southall for the most exotic, yet authentic, of Indian delights - stuff yourself on jalebis, halwas, laddoos, barfis and all other fattenings, ghee-filled sweets to your heart's content.

cheer

the very Brotherhood of the Right Stuff itself

Exactly so, Father. I just knew I had the most noble and honourable of goals, and that I wasn't just chattering like a chimp, increasing my status whilst adding no real value to this glorious establishment.


I almost put down 'chattering like a cheetah'. Then I remembered that in the TV series Tarzan there was indeed a chimp called Cheetah.
How weird is that??

Yum! Can I come?
Purely on Board business, naturally.. sorting out the "eccentric" graduations and so on.


Oo doolali, oo doolali
Golly what a day

(we could really do with some musical note icons)

I am more than willing to explore Southall with any all denizens of this Board who make it to the Big Smoke. One condition, though - you have to sit through a Hindi film with me, and clap and cheer and hoot and whistle when nudged. If dancing breaks out in the aisles, it is mandatory to join in. (Any of you any good at chewing paan and making really bright red spit?)

If I am not mistaken, this will be the 300th post within 'Information and Announcements'. Q&A rocketed through the 4000 mark last week. Do these forums get titles too? Or colours? Or are we simply supposed to gauge their popularity by reading the numbers? I like to think, somewhere, that 'Information and Announcements' can be reified enough to become an 'addict' in its own right...
