To sum it up:

- MilanBenes has gone on holiday with mum/dad/sister and grandparents in one of those tourist resort somewhere in the mediterranean area

- Atw feels like he has to lose weight but he does nothing about it

- "Contracting has been the bigger mistake of my life" talkshow style

- Shaunboy is getting excited for Scotland and Celtic performances: don't worry, it's only temporary

- MF is spamming lots of useless posts as he is being a full-time father with nothing else to do

- anything else worth reading?

You mean that lot was worth reading to begin with?

Where have you been, Franco? I took Mrs Lucifer and young Damien off to Portugal for a couple of weeks and am slowly coming back to reality in SW19.

My parents are off to Sorrento next week, the b@stards.

Greece, to celebrate the wedding of Mr and Mrs Franco. :D

Yes, SW19 looks very grim when you switch from those mediterranean paradise lands where the water is slightly cleaner than the one of the river Wandle.

p.s. where you in Algarve LB? was there last year, but in the least touristic part, closer to Spain

Well done, Franco. I hope married life suits you.

I might cheer myself by taking a trip to Merton Abbey Mills to buy some over-priced tat and have a KFC in the exclusive on-site food concession.

No, the Estoril coast, west of Lisboa. Very nice at any time of the year.

Don't forget to finish your day with a couple of pints at the William Morris for a taste of local south wimbledon chavs and the dirtiest glasses and worst service in the whole SW area.

I was thinking maybe a trip to the Emma Hamilton for a good kicking afterwards as well. Fancy a pint?

Oh dear, I'm so missing freshly grilled sardinhas by the sea with a lovely bottle of chilled vinho verde.

Love sardinhas. That's not very common for a respectable north european like yourself though. So at the end we do have something in common?

I don't know this Emma Hamilton... :-(

I just moved to "that London" from Spain. Drove Rocinante hard to Bilbao to catch the ferry and I've just spent over 48 hours here, I'm still in shock! (Not the journey, just S. London)

Ah, there's a little Mediterranean in all of us at heart. I also always enjoy the fresh anchova, which you simply can't get here. It doesn't travel well I'm told. Young Damien enjoyed his first taste of proper fresh seafood and was particularly taken by the polvo

Where did you go in Greece? Was it a hedonistic honeymoon or a culture attack?

The Emma Hamilton (named after Nelson's mistress) is a particularly rough pub in Wimbledon Chase. Full of people with that Sarf Lahndan "are you looking at me?" glint in their eyes.

Well I satisfied the cultural attacks in Athens and for the rest the islands can offer a lot. Particularly the ones close to Turkey, less crowded and unknown to the northeners. The polvo? Octopus? Mmmmm ....

Well Jabber was banned. I know it is difficult to believe - apparently there is some sort of petition doing the rounds to get him reinstated.

Went to Kalymnos last year; stark, peaceful, and the locals were genuinely friendly and helpful. The long transfer tends to keep the laddette/chav parties away.

Would love to go back.

Was in Chios (not to be confused with Kos) and I have had the same feeling. Local extremely helpful, perhaps because as you said the chavs don't travel that far. Indeed, there was no sign of english people there, mostly dutch, which I am afraid they have a better reputation in Greece.

There were plenty of English on Kalymnos, but in family groups, not same-sex groups. I think it's the latter that have got the bad reputation.
