Jovis Jaysus, good reactions, I would have froze or possibly whimpered  :-[

I spent the entire weekend relaxing: wine, sleeping, Mindhunter, beach walks, only for it all to go wrong 1st thing today, still had a lovely weekend  :thumbsup:

I'd like to hear more about the bonking couple.

You really wouldn't. I was on a mushroom foraging expedition for Shaggy Parasols, wandered out onto the beach, and found some Shagging Arseholes instead. Let's leave it at that.

Well the interview went alright I feel, one question I couldn’t see the forrest for trees but it lasted a good 90 mins and I think I cane off as at least functionally competent. Will find out in a few days.

Best of luck, Hawkie.

Thanks all, for the kind words regarding my brush with disaster, and Tordelback; loads of respect for your past inferno heroics.

Hawkie, hope you get the job!

Fingers crossed Zac old boy. At 90 minutes you either impressed or they were too damned polite by far. I imagine the former.

Oh here, all.I did was stand at the doors shouting while bricking it (still gIves me nightmares). It was my missus that actually got people out of their beds and out of there before I even arrived (I was literally holding the baby at the time). She's scarily brave and icy calm in a crisis. Runs in the family - her uncle once went into a housefire and carried three kids out.

Cheers lads, playing the waiting game is a tough one this week (pity you can't make money out of air!) but here's hoping...

Hell's Bells, Jaysus! That was a close call indeed.

I knew a guy who had something similar happen to him, albeit in his flat. He had started cooking some chips, but got so distracted by a hurling match on the TV, that he completely failed to notice the mini towering inferno taking place in the kitchenette. Luckily, he finally noticed the smoke as it started to spread into the living room. He managed to put out the fire okay, but his planned weekend of of drink-fuelled R&R morphed into an unexpected bout of frantic cleaning and painting before his girl friend returned from a trip away.

Glad you got away relatively unscathed. When are you having that barbecue again? :D

I remember once seeing an old school friend get absolutely shit-faced on a night out. I bumped into him a couple of days later and he had a huge scab on the end on his nose. It turned out he'd gone home and fried himself some bacon for a sandwich - he bent over to savour the smell and fried the end of his nose!  :lol:
Could have been worse though!

When he was still living at home, my waster brother developed a habit of coming home stocious, and throwing a pan of beans on the cooker before passing out on the kitchen table. The smoke alarm became a regular early-hours sound in our house, but it never roused him. (Now he's a superfit former Bondi lifeguard who competes in Iron Man races all over the world. Funny thing, life).
