Slag is that you? I ain't coming up to you and asking if you are a slag.

Why ever not?  Everyone else just shouts 'Oi, Slaggggg!'

This is going back a few years now, well probably about 13, so a relative infancy in internet dating and the only time I've ever done it.

I'd just finished a difficult relationship in australia, and didn't want to come back to the UK, decided it would be nice to try and have a relationship (rebound), so went online to bridge the gap between Oz and the UK. One guy loved my photo and sent me one and he looked pretty hot.

However, when we met, he was nothing like his photo (which was taken about 15 years earlier)

Why do people do that? It's very obvious that when you meet them... Erm they're not going to look like their Internet ego. I think people should post the worst photos of them on dating sites and then you'll be pleasantly surprised.

(Not that I'm shallow enough to go for looks only, but let's face it they have to be shagable!)

Another lost pirate here - there are lots of tables & pillars & fruit machines - care to narrow it down any further

Race report: I arrived at the venue - a big win for me as I was properly nervous. After a few mins I realised I was standing next to a double ironman, Slag. How do you approach a complete stranger who has achieved such an epic task not once buy twice? How do you approach someone and say 'oi, slaaaaaag' Coincidence of all coincidences, I have met (and bored the pants off) Slag before in a business environment! What were the odds, I believe we are even LinkedIn!

Slag, and the others i talked to, I know I was rabbiting on but I make no apologies. I was star struck

As more epic individuals arrived my level of star struckedness reached higher and higher levels. What an amazing group of inspiring people you all are. Everyone was so down to earth and friendly and yet so totally EPIC in their achievements. I have read a little about how the pirates came to be. It is clear to me that the ethos and mindset of the pirates lives on, undilluted and as the founders intended.

I had a great time talking to Jess, Funkin, Slag, Flat Footed and more. I don't think I can wait till 2014 for my first ironman. Stage 1: VLM 2013. Stage 2: Challenge Henley - well that's the plan
