Drying my eyes after reading "typo of the year!" :lol: :lol:

Back on topic, I've just realised something...I have bought at least one watch in every calendar month since last June!! :shock:
My last one arrived on 1st February, but was in fact bought in January...this means, technically, that I haven't actually BOUGHT a watch in February. Still, it's a leap year and there are 5 days to go! :lol:

Plenty of time yet. What do you want though?

Like the posting from AndyKH earlier this morning at 05:39 (you MUST be excited to post at that time Andy!!), I too have bought 3 CW's in the past 6 weeks!!!!!!
Thats how it starts.... I bought two in my first month on here.... then it all went a bit crazy. Two years on and I think I now have 22 CWL's and three other non-CW. Must do a count up!!

So, don't worry, there are a lot more to come.. just don't worry like I did about buying a watch box with more spaces than you can fill... it won't be a problem!!

Lots of things now! :shock: I found a watch-shop I never knew about this morning, and he has dozens of nice old pieces including a lot of Omegas...outside of impulse range, though, so I was disciplined! :D

You must be talking about the "****" typo... funny, it must be a good word because it didn't become underlined by spell-check. Hmmmmm.... now I have to figure out what "****" means. Anyone know what a **** is?

It's another of those "quintessentially Bristish" ones...an online slang dictionary should help. :silent:

OK, Did some research and I know what the joke is now. I'll put it this way: I will never wonk into an Asylum. Man, that could really hurt! :lol: Of course, one could, rather, wonk "onto" an Asylum :megaeek: and that would likely get you a room pretty fast. :lol:

This is so funny! One simple ety-bity typo and look what happens....... :oops: So... excuuuuuuuuuse Meeeeeeeeee! :wave:
