Happy Wedding Day!
AS ONE, as predicted, rocked the arches of FIRE. The room which really held it’s own was A:M with Paul Heron followed by Gonzalo on the decks. The Mirror Arch and the AS ONE Lounge struggled to keep a crowd with many herding to the main room. This may be due it being very busy but not rammed packed as expected. This wasn’t the AS ONE on a Sunday as we were use too but more a Saturday...

Depends on the chemistry
This dialogue was extracted from a gay cruising site.
Mr A: your hot
Mr B: so are you
Mr A: What r u upto?
Mr B; cruising looking for some fun. U?
Mr A: yeah looking for a horny time. Wanna hook up?
Mr B: sure mate...later today...
Then the dreaded but, it seems essential question, which really means 'I have an agenda and I need u to match it' The question really isn't aimed at YOU but more a 'requirement' necessary to see if you have what they want...
Mr A: So what r u into?
Mr B: all sorts from vanilla to more adventurous...all depends on the Chemistry.
Mr A: chemistry, yeah, so what Chems you got?
Mr B: eh?
Had Internet hooks ups totally rid people of the interest, curiosity and excitement of discovering. When did it turn into a 'chinese takeaway' where you need to be, have or at least can do number 6, 37, 44,67 and 88 on the menu...and when did that 'special magic' that 'click' that 'feeling you get'...i.e CHEMISTRY become code word for Drugs...and what u are willing to do sexually isn't about how turned on u are but how high you are.
Groove may be in the heart, but it seems Chemistry is up the nose...

Petrol & Alcohol...do they mix?
If drinking and driving is illegal ( and it is if u r over a certain limit ) …is it right that petrol stations sell beer?

Welcome to O2. Someone will be with you soon.
You're through to Sam.
Sam: Hi I'm Sam. How can I help?
Brent Nicholls: I am looking at my 02 bill and noticed there is £15.50 in charges for non EU messages
Brent Nicholls: although I have been to Canada it says i made 62 text messages...which of course I didn't. Checking my bill, it indicates for a certain periood text messages were sent out every second
Brent Nicholls: which of course is impossible unless something is wrong with the system
Sam: I'm sorry about that I'll check this for you please stay online.
Brent Nicholls: thanks
Sam: Thanks for waiting, I can see that you've been charged after every 2 seconds, so this might be the lengthy message sent by you. Don't worry as a special case I'll credit £10 to your account.
Brent Nicholls: How lengthy? How many characters does it take until it is counted as another message?...
Sam: Up to 70 characters.
Brent Nicholls: ok, i have checked my messages from that time period i was away and there is nothing that would incur that cost...
Sam: Okay and I've credited £10 to your account.
Brent Nicholls: but you are still charging me for messages i did not make, if there is a fault with your system i need to know...plus I have been recieving double messages via test from others
Brent Nicholls: in fact on the 15th March I made one message and you have charged me over 40 times! this is not acceptable
Brent Nicholls: I only want to be charged for what i use and not for errors in your system
Sam: For that only I've credited £10 to your account.
Brent Nicholls: that is not enough
Brent Nicholls: on the 15th March i made one message = 25p and you are charging me £4....
Sam: I've credited £10 to your account for this inconvenice.
Brent Nicholls: i need to know what number to call to report this incident. i also need to know your staff number, as you are not addressing my concerns but keep repeating the same thing over again.
Brent Nicholls: I also want a transcript of this chat for legal reasons
Sam is having technical problems and can't chat. Hold on while we put you through to someone else.
You're through to Gareth.
Gareth: Hi I'm Gareth. How can I help?
Brent Nicholls: did u follow this. i want the id of the previous adviser
Gareth: Just a moment
Hold on. You're being put through to Sam.
You're through to Sam.
Sam: Hi I'm Sam. How can I help?
Brent Nicholls: you did not give me ur employer Id.
Brent Nicholls: i am now on the phone to o2
Sam: My name is Sam and I'm an O2 online customer service associate.
Brent Nicholls: is that how i would id u to a supervisor?
Sam: Yes and may I know the reason for that?
Brent Nicholls: ur inability to deal with my question satisfactorily instead just repeating over and over again you credited me £10 and ignoring my other enquires...
Brent Nicholls: that is not good service, you might as well be an automated service, plus if I am going to be charged for services I did not use there are legal issues of which this chat is part of
Sam: I can see that this might be the issue with the system, so I've also forwarded this to our support team to look into this matter.
Brent Nicholls: it no longer becomes a matter of £15.50 but a broader issue of faulty equipment, services and the charging of services not used (fraud)...I am willing to pay for what i use, but i am not going to be charged for a faulty system...its part of 02s duty to provide a secure and trustworthy phone service of which I am happy to pay for....
Sam: I totally agree with you and I appreciate your valuable feedback, I've forwarded this to our support team and this won't happen again.
Brent Nicholls: thank you
THE END OF THE STORY
I ended up calling 02 where the services was beyond excellent (I know better than us a chat thing...Sam really did sound automated and was obvioulsy reading from a scrip hence the constant repetition). The disconnection may have been a coincidence...
Once on the phone to a UK BASED help line (hurrah for 02!) I was promptly assisted, my text messages were worked out, and I am now refunded yhe overcharge.
I don't mind paying for what I use but to pay for a fault..!!
The Problem? Perhaps a faulty sim which I will check out today....
The BIG QUESTION: Why does it take the 'legal' word for people to behave with integrity? We may not like lawyers but aren't they just s symptom of a society that lacks integrity?
It was the night Disco Matt, side kick Stephen and myself went along to Alex Erfan’s GAY CITY ROLLERS. With Dusty O and Stewart Who providing us with a gorgeous disco dripped soundtrack, it was Wayne Gs mix of Xanadu that saw the muse come out in me. For the less experienced, Disco Matt was doing more the ‘fall over’ Matt as the video plays testament to. Stephen did the baby step...
THE ONLY WAY IS ESSEX…I can’t believe there is a middle England like this…I love it…it’s been ages since I really enjoyed a show…and it is one like this! Question: why is the only gay in the house a mincy GAY queen? Why isn’t it more like the ones that carry him in? Does it make the other boys feel more secure about themselves and having hot gays may...
My Life Chronicled
I have always wanted to keep a diary, and on many occasions have but always failed to keep it going. When I look back at those old books I can barely remember the incident, or why I reacted in a certain way or what it all meant. Of course I am not the person who I was many years ago, although I am the sum of those personas. Now in a series of blogs, status updates, photo posts, share buttons,...

On Gay Marriage
For me marriage is a religious union...so forcing others to accept a gay marriage is like having religion forced upon oneself. I see the point of civil unions in in places where the law does not recognise relationships between consenting adults equally without legal representation. Why gay people want to emulate a relationship structure that simply has proven not to work, irrelevant of sexuality is beyond my understanding. Create something better, be something better. A true statement of love isn't a piece of paper, a blessing from god or a public statement...love is as love does. Only those who feel love 'isn't enough' will want if verified, in which case, it isn't love.
