Today,for the fist time, Mrs Whaleoil, The Cook and Mrs Gooner met face to face. There was much lamenting the time spent by the otherwise dutiful swains on 'the blog.' Some even found out for the first time their respective spouses' blog pseudonyms.
Anyway, an exceedingly pleasant afternoon was indulged by Gooner, Whaleoil and Adolf at Fairfacts Media's abode - complete with geothermally heated swimming pool. Adolf found himself in the position of default setting Cook when FFM asked him why he had not brought with him a gas barbeque. Adolf thought that when one is invited for a barbie that there will be a barbie in situe but never mind. All's well that ends well and end well it surely did.
You know, there were six people there who had birthdays in October, or close to it. The Cook had the presence of mind to bring a cake so we had a Happy Birthday For Us Song followed by a general discussion on how the Cancerous Cow would live to regret having imposed her corrosive presence on the otherwise innocent All Blacks at Cardiff.
