Gulliver arrived this morning after a delay at customs - bag ripped open and sealed with sticky tape saying, "opened by customs" - the miserable customs men insisted on a full body search, and Gulliver refuses to say anything more on the matter.
But he is recovering and looking forward to spending the day in La Col sur Loup with my wife tomorrow and then bikini watching at the beach in Cannes over the weekend.
Oh my goodness!
He got there *woot woots. whatever that means*
And was he really hustled? If so ... damn!
Otherwise I'm so happy. The bear has landed. Mark, have loads of fun, pin the bugger down and send the evidence!!!
And bikini watching sounds enormous fun ...
Well it is to be expected ya know? The lil bugger may have drugs concealed or maybe Christian pamphlets so they did ya a favor Mark. LOL Am looking forward to the pictures, especially the bikinis. Woot! *what does that mean*
ralwus they probably detected the undetectable or some such ...
And I don't know what 'woot' means
According to Wikipedia Woot is an internet retailer. LOL It's based in Carrollton, Texas. Now, how's that? LOL
also found this and it is more to the truth of this particular hoot.
Woot originated as a hacker term for root (or administrative) access to a computer. However, with the term as coincides with the gamer term, "w00t".
"w00t" was originally an trunicated expression common among players of Dungeons and Dragons tabletop role-playing game for "Wow, loot!" Thus the term passed into the net-culture where it thrived in video game communities and lost its original meaning and is used simply as a term of excitement.
"I defeated the dark sorcerer! Woot!"
"woot! i r teh flagmastar!" (Think Tribes)
"Woot, I pwnzed this dude's boxen!'
