Superb! The Oscar is rightfully yours! I shall cherish the mental image of Queenie and the corgis getting the fright of their life on that wintry morning.

Now, I don't suppose you have Verity's number?

You want to out me flamboyant1? I used to be a chef for some years but now after a bit of retraining at uni I am the CEO of a private social club in the city. Nothing saucy, a club in the traditional Englich sense.

"Nothing Saucy" Sounds like Miss Whiplash to me!
I have never laughed as much as reading this thread. My wife thinks I have finally gone over. Thanks for a brilliant post

Hey Goldflyer, you might know a friend of mine - Hugh (won't use his surname here) is the Manager of another Sydney based exclusive Club...

*ROFLMAO* I CANNOT BELIEVE it's taken me this long to get back here... hey someone said 2-3 weeks and I thought they were serious! MMmm, first officer eh?? So you didn't feel me having a grab when I hugged you? You really have had too much Vodka Dom (or given the destination would that be Vodka Pom?)

My dear GoldFlyer, honoured as I am that my alter ego got a mention in your Oscar acceptance speech, it does seem just a smidgeon premature given that the closing scenes of your epic have yet to be released to the baying hounds of public opinion. The suspense is palpable! FT Chat is alive with speculation!! InterflugIL62 is quaking in his ugg boots!!! Master of suspense that you are, I can only beg for mercy: please, it's time to put us out of our misery...</font>
I am quaking in what? nah, don't think so, just planning someone's painful upcoming flight. ;p

Hey GoldFlyer, did you steal the First Class cabin flowers again? They are getting real peeved with that at corporate.

Interflug,

I suppose you did miss something. Mad_atta was played as Dam Taat. Udd boots are these awful calf length sheepskin boots worn in these parts by people in th eouter suburbs. Strangely enough, some "movie types" in LA have decided that they like them too.

Stupide moi. Never would have seen that, not good with the letter re-arranging and would die of national embarrassment if I were on one of those quiz shoes. Hum, hum, don't know. Pass.

Also, you do realize that as to the center/refold mentioned above that it would be of an airplane, fully painted of course.

Outwardly of course my friend.

But I'm sure you will secretly be very happy with a chuncky Frau in nurses uniform dispensing her treatment.

As to letters, you just let me know when I'm going too fast mate. I'll take a breather but no straw involved.

Bali, September. Slight problem as it is end of financial year for me and auditors will be crawling all over the place. mother of course loved any bloke that crawled and even better if he could manage witn an anal report? in his mouth.

Perhaps a visitation in sunny SYD wil be attractive enough but be prepared to walk on the wild side. I think Dam Taat may even be available to show you around.

What a fantastic effort. I loved every minute, and kind of glad I didn't get to join the ride.. who knows what might have happened to me!

Goldflyer, so what arr ya gonna do with Mr. Melbourne here? I think he's asking for it.

As for Sydney, here is the deal. If I can get there using miles. Everyone is having problems using their AA miles on Qantas, though I could see Air Tahiti and stop in Bora Bora, that would be so worth it!

Will keep yer posted.

Now Oh Behave, or I will have to get Dr. Evil after you and it won't be pretty!
