I met Oggy for a drink
in london before the caucus. At it turned, a coupla pints and a
short chat in a victoria pub. I would not disclose what oggy looks
like except to say he's covered with blue hair and says "blobby
blobby blobby"
when speaking. ;-)

Oggy is a brilliant citizen of the world, and he is the only face i
know on DU. Everyone else is a word... How far away at time words
are to people who speak them. Memes, ideological opposites in
lexicon, between animals, entirely similar in person.

Fortunately, both Oggy and i speak "blobby" and we had a grand old
time. "blobby blobby blobby blobby" :-)

My partner does not speak "blobby" and thinks i waste my time on DU
in a "blobby" fantasy. Oggy, a fellow DU spirit, understands, and
for once the virtual is paged in one real page, "blobby".

1. Real name Ogrizovic, by any chance?
Steve Ogrizovic, legendary goalkeeper of Coventry City goes by the name of Oggy. Okok, I'll stop.

2. I wish

He has at least 12 inches on me!! ( Height, you smutty person!)

How come you know such info?

Trivia Fact, Steve Ogrizovic also played cricket for Shropshire in the minor counties league!


On edit I would just like to say, how cool it is to have a face to a monicur. We all lurk, trawl, post and discuss, but we must never underestimate the importance of human face to face contact. I gained more from meeting Sweetheart for a couple of hours than a week of DU ( as I am addicted, and a week is 84 hours of DU for me ). We are all humans and we are designed to interact on such a level. Even though DU may be a magnificent forum to exchange views, face to face achieves much more.
