    got to look after the pennies - if he's trying to give sound financial advice on TV adverts, it wouldn't do to just chuck money away willy nilly would it?

    i have just booked a holiday... it takes off at 11:50... I found a train that will go straight to the airport at 09:20... is that cutting it too fine? it's quite a lot more expensive if i get another one lol

    That should be fine unless its long haul (in which case you need to be there about ~3 hrs early).

    it is longhaul lol

    i can get a flight from edinburgh to manchester for 57 one way that would get me there at 8am... and then i could get a train back. i would do it return but it would mean waiting from 8am til 5pm (the other return time is 5 mins before i land) for the flight back.. would rather just wing it on the train

    i'm going to Cuba, I was there earlier in the year and met some people when i was out there on an excursion.. they were there to guide you around the local town on a sort of pub crawl type event... got chatty to a couple of girls there and went back into town myself a few times to meet with them, going back to see them

    one of them is arranging my living arrangements there.. apparently the room and meals will be approx 15.00 a night

    That sounds ace. I havn't been on a proper foreign holiday for 5 years. Trips to Chicago and South Africa but they were for work. You can't go wrong for 15pn. How much are the flights?

    PS Cuba is a long way to go to get some tail!

    yeah i know, but stupid as it may sound i sort of fell in love within seconds lol... i have some pretty weird tastes, and she likes them all: from reading sci-fi/fantasy books like Lord of the Rings & Dune, to watching Japanese animated films (Studio Ghibli) and shit like Star Wars, to listening to everything from Pearl Jam to Bob Dylan via indian classical music like Ravi Shankar and Hariprasad Chaurasia... I have never met anyone who liked even one of those things, let alone all of them... it just seemed like such a ridiculously strong connection.. a really tragic one considering the distance... we have talked online just about every day since Feb.. maybe this is just a 'it's been great, but goodbye' type thing, i don't know, but we'll see

    i don't go on holiday much either but i have the money in my savings and nothing i can think of to spend it on that sounds better than this

    the flights were expensive, must be a peak time of year, they were 620.. looking at anywhere between 60-100 to get to Manchester and back too

    i shouldn't need to spend much when i am over there... i bought a beer in town when i didn't know them and it cost 70p... i bought 5 beers in the local currency when i was out with them for the same price lol (beer in those little water cooler type cups rather than a pint, but 5 for about 70p, can't complain)

    Fill yer boots. Would you move out there to be with her given the chance? Fuck it, I might move out there if beer is that cheap!

    yeah but with all the communism and poverty

    if things worked out then i would seriously consider it yeah, why not... if it's shit and doesn't work out, i could come back.. i'd be penniless but who cares, what have i really got going on here? [edit: except a job, family and friends... but fuck it, if i could live with someone who i feel is probably the only person i have ever made that level of connection with in my whole life then it would be worth a bash]

    ps: has anyone ever clicked the 'who is online' link? http://www.cagewarriors.com/forums/online.php?

    i clicked it once and saw a lot of guests looking at the chav porn thread... every time i click it, i see at least 2 guests in that same thread. i've checked a dozen or so times just out of interest now lol, and every time... anyone want to name themselves?

    edit 2: i am away to bed.. night. i noticed that that thread has over 165,000 views, making it the 2nd most viewed thread on the board after You laugh, you lose. Maybe it's just spam bots or something lol, that's a crazy number of views

    that's a good way to think about it, fuck it, if the romance doesn't work out, you're on holiday in Cuba, still awesome. i went to Sweden to see a girl a few years ago and it didn't work out, bah, ain't so bad, Stockholm is amazing. just make sure you don't invest too much in the idea beforehand, that way if things with the lady work out, that would be a bonus - rather than it being a nightmare if it didn't work.

    worst comes to the worst you can still get pissed up like a bastard in the sunshine lol

    yes, i click on this link a lot to gather information about who is reading what. all goes into the database. i'm always surprised by how many people are searching the forum. what are they looking for? old threads they posted in? or their own name in case people are talking about them on the forum? who knows. i just save the information anyway.
