    *Takes a seat*

    I'll have a glass of Prosecco (Can't afford Champers).

    I'm not really a tennis fan as it clashs with sitting in silence in a dark room time. I do try to watch Murray though but I find I'm bad luck on the fella. Here's to hoping he wins tomorrow.

    Yes, I'm not a fan of this city to be fair apart from the China House (Pub on the Barbican). That place holds my heart <laugh>

    It's alright, I know you are. I live on the GC so have quite thick skin. Yeah, it ain't that far and I don't technically live in Soton. Soton isn't the nicest of cities but it has improved over the years. I like Poole more than B'mouth as it is a bit less chavvy. Best place in Plymouth has to be North Prospects (Swilley) <laugh>

    Can't think why you wouldn't like our fine city tbh, it's a great place to live. Like all cities it has it's poor areas but hey we have the beaches on our doorstep, Dartmoor, the Hoe, Barbican and HOME PARK. I love it here.

    I can't drive. This place is perfect if I could drive as I have friends down in Polperro and Dartmoor is great for a weekend hike. I've had my good times here but I just find Plymouth has more than it's fair share of ****ers <laugh>

    Can one have a Rusty Nail, purely for medicinal purposes you understand?

    I've decided to "work from home" tomorrow and it's, ahem, quite possible the Murray match will be on in the background.

    I went through a period back in the 90s when I refused to watch Celtic v Rangers games because for about four or five years every time I did Celtic got beat. It happened every time. I put it down to me being a jinx but in reality it was just that Celtic were crap and Rangers were better than us.

    I was thinking I might not watch the Murray match tomorrow for the same silly superstitious reason but it would take one helluva an ego to think that watching a tennis match could actually influence the result.

    Still, if Andy loses tomorrow you're more than welcome to blame me <laugh>

    Now, about that Rusty Nail...

    Isn't it a cocktail? Served above lol.

    I get like that too, used to wear my earrings with green stones in them to home matches and we lost - every match so stopped wearing them. I also think sometimes Argyle play better when I'm not there, stupid aint it?

    ST you need to start jinxing your team a bit more often these days!

    Speaking of not watching, I'm not a particularly superstitious person but I've literally seen like 10 minutes of Murray on court so far this Aussie Open and he's done quite well so far. I doubt I'll get to see much of the match tomorrow if any at all so hopefully the run will keep going

    I hate Andy Murray and it's nothing to do with him being a Scotch bastard (although he is <whistle>)

    I'm actually quite happy with tennis at the moment though, I like Djokovic and Nadal, and I'm part Belarusian so the woman's is going great <ok> Even I play once a week at the moment...
