    Default Absolutely Crestfallen

    I have received some very disappointing news regarding my prospective membership of the Rotarians. In short, my application, on this occasion, has not been successful. I can't begin to tell you how upset I've been over the past few days; indeed, It's taken until now for me to muster up the gumption to type this post.

    You will recall that I recently enjoyed what I had perceived to have been a very impressionable meal with my local Rotary Club in which I delivered some very salient comments at appropriate junctures throughout the course of the meal. For example, complimenting Lt. Col. Ashton Wicket on serving a Mosel before the Claret. Regrettably, these were undone by a number of faux pas and gaffes. These being:

    • Filling my water glass with wine
    • Tilting my soup tureen toward me rather than away
    • Holding my knife like a pen
    • Cutting the "nose" off the brie


    More devastating was Malc's reactions to the Lt. Col's speech impediment. Each time he uttered the word "Wotarian", Malc failed to stifle his childish guffawing and this did not go unnoticed.

    As a consequence, Malc and I are on non speakers. Indeed, as an act of spite, Malc hacked into my CUK account yesterday and posted a vulgar, sexist, ageist thread in my name. I will NOT be among the congregation in Church on Sunday to listen to him read the lesson.

    In the meantime, I'm off to brush up on my etiquette in the hope that one last push will get me that holy grail of Rotarian membership.

    Much better. I assume yesterday was just a blip where you accidentally logged in using the sockie account instead of the puppet master.

    Edit: I see you've actually tried to blame it on Malc.
