FlipTop a.k.a Phil James
FlipT was born bread (and buttered) in the Midlands, land of Dark Satanic Mills and Boon! (?)
He was bought up (regurgitated?) by his parents as a Devout Indecisive, and spent his early years living in a moral vacuum (which really sucked). (At this point I will say I did not write this, blame the puns on them - Lou).
After his student daze, he moved to Rustic Dorzzzzzset, where he lives right by the sea and make a living writing in C. (Erm. . that's a computer programme language folks). His christening font was helvetica, he takes a 33" leg trouser (not arm trouser then? - Lou), and his favourite colour is Sue's hair?! Visit FlipTop's homage to lunch here

Mrs Z likes music of the seventies and eighties for obvious reasons. She is a fan of David Essex!!?! (joke - Lou), which is her mums fault!

Lola, she was a showgirl, well no actually she wasn't but she is a cakeshopper and has been for a good year and a bit. She is from Chester but is originally from the East Mids and is in her early 20's (though she can look 16, oh dear . . .) Lola is fine until cierage is applied and then the special bossy pointy finger technique comes into play, this is best viewed at a distance at one of th CS meet ups she tries to organise . . . A bit bossy, a bit mad but in need of a good home, food and watering, thats Lola.

them in Word, end up being underlined in green squiggles by that
bloody paperclip who thinks heís just SO clever and knows
absolutely EVERYTHING about everything when he obviously doesnít <Ďcos heís a just an animated paperclip and Iím a real person and
thereís a difference and I know what I want to write and I donít
need you telling me what Iím thinking you little bastard so stop
it! Stop it now or Iíll minimise you, you little turd! If you

people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move." -
Douglas Adams 2) Tell a man there are a billion stars in the sky and he will
believe you. Tell him there is wet paint on the bench and he will

4) A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing
it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
