I had a weird experience tonight.... Let me share:

I'd been drinking with Kid & Ringo*, and had just been dropped off home, wheni received a call on my mobile. It was someone who i shall leave nameless, saying the following:

You know Prendy?
Me: Yeah..?
Caller: You're his ass!
Cue much laughter, and an invite to an MSN conversation in 10 minutes, and here we are, chatting away, when Johnny G's clearly online too, and my pseudonom is suddenly "Prendy's ass".


Any confesions, anyone, as to who the secret caller was?????

  OK. It was me. I was taken by the Prendy myth a few years back and ever since, between Wash and I his name has been an occasional insult.

There's a much longer story behind this one, though.

  Let me take you back, if I can, to the summer of 1999, when Wash and I were abroad in France looking after children in the mornings and doing nothing at all in the afternoons. We used to wander a bit, and one day found some really cheap orangeade (Think Fanta without the Fan) called Jojo). That was the first day we really played with the beach, and we buried the cans so they looked like evil sand eyes (or breasts - we were young) and then laughed a lot. There are photos of that.

Anyway, a couple of days later, I turned to Wash while we were changing to go out on a night, and asked him "Do you know Christopher Bairstow?" and then started laughing. Literally 5 minutes later I had calmed enough to ask again "Do you know Christopher Bairstow?" and started laughing again. This time, however, I managed to stammer "You're his ass!" at Wash!.

He was at this point, none the wiser. Said Christopher Bairstow was a slightly chubby kid with whom I went to school up to aged 9 and hadn't seen since, but whose name was dragged up and through the mud, to much amusement. Like Prendy's tonight.

However, the Bairstow legend does not end there. 2 years later, recounting the story to a friend, it turns out he is related to Bairstow. (Scary coincidence 1). A year or so after, it turns out that our favourite colleague in French lessons, Myers, used to be good friends with 'Spud' Bairstow. It was too much. The story is too legendary to leave, so here it is for the public to see. If ever Wash and I are not comprehended by someone, it is probably something related to, or similar to, this.

We were robbed tonight. Of about 4. Damn them all to hell.

  1. Do not think he was exaggerating when he said he was laughing for 5 minutes. It had got to the point where i was bored, and started to carry on getting ready. When the punchline was thrown at me, though, the evening took on a new course... as did the rest of our lives.

2. We did indeed bury cans of Jojo in the beach, but later returned, a couple of days later, to write in the sand: "Christopher Bairstow's Ass". Kid took a photo of it, and kept it in his wallet... ("Waldo")... for years after!

3. We put 4 on the pool table to reserve what should have been a nights-worth of games. The previous player had away with it, leaving us skint... though highly amused.

  Might "Waldo" have contained rubbers along with "ass/boob or whatever the rorschach equivalent" photos of the buried cans? Just so your subconcious might incorporate the fact, I do not chat much anywhere online, especially an MSN site.

  Don't want to offend if I can help it. I have no strong feelings bout online chatting or the MSN website and if you are predisposed to doing either habitually and for long duration more power to you. It's an election year ya know and I like to online chat just like any other guy.

  No, no. Me and Kid were just chatting on MSN messenger, but at the same time, Kid was replying to a topic here, and within a minute or two, you had replied. That's the only reason we knew you were online. We weren't suggesting you were using MSN Messenger.

  I've never used a chat room...just instant messenger...and only then with people I know. I'd never really thought about it until then....I like that.

  All these confluences of activity drives me crazy. I am a Yahooer by nature. MSN messenger is I'm sure a fine way to express yourself. Yahoo has smiley faces to display the fact you are online and instant messaging capability to show you care. That's it. No more to say.
