Oh, it's you.
I left a Guinness and Jack back in the bar for you.  Have the decency to wait until after one o'clock.
Oh hell, it's one o'clock somewhere.  Let's drink to thatollie's return.
I have a motto: when in doubt, go for the cheap laugh.

That's the kind of attitude I like.
Cheers.

We probably all assume that you will either enlighten us in the fullness of time, or, alternatively, that you have no intention of offering such enlightenment.  Either way you will, Ollie-like, plough your own highly individual furrow regardless of what is asked or said.  I am however glad to see that the chain-saw injuries weren't fatal after all, and that rumours of your death were somewhat exaggerated.

I'll just say it then shall I.

This is Oliver's retort to the imaginary question, "Why is this message being posted earlier than you expected?"

"Even the most well scrubbed pots and pans of rice and Wrens may be rusted by his own Her."

It looked wittier on my notepad, honestly.

thanks Ollie, you've completely confounded me :)

I assumed that you meant you'd intended to take a longer break from us than you did. I didn't understand why you needed to de-register though to take a break - I understand about needing to get down to work and not wanting to be distracted by MWC, just not the de-registering.
"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." - Kafka

Hi

Did you for one minute that this monosyllable was enough!
I've been absent too, but nobody missed me  ;)
Methinks you still have some explaining to do.

Quite apart from that, when will thatollie evolve from Guest mode?

Who was it that said "Nice to see ya ... to see ya nice!"

Welcome and enjoy!

I have a bad feeling about Ollie.

Quite a while back there was an anguished post from him saying something along the lines of 'Please don't let them make me into an accountant'. Maybe this has happened.  Maybe he has been sent on a course.  I've no idea who the 'them' were, but it may have happened.
