    My name is Leisha, and I’m an Anglophile!!! I’m also a Robaholic (does this equate to the same thing???)

    Great post sloopy….

      Welcome, Leisha…

      Now, I believe that in your case, it equates…

      Just remember it this way…
      All Robaholics are Anglophiles, but not all Anglophiles are Robaholics.

      (wow, that’s like a dirty word problem, lol) πŸ˜‰

      • leisha Says:

        In my head:

        Leisha: Say it…out loud…
        Rob: Anglophile
        Leisha: gaaahhhh…..say it again….
        Rob: Baby, you like it when I say Anglophile to you?
        Leisha: *blacks out*

      • sloopy1975 Says:

        Leisha: Say it…out loud…
        Rob: Anglophile
        Leisha: gaaahhhh…..say it again….
        Rob: Baby, you like it when I say Anglophile to you?
        Leisha: *blacks out*
        Laura: Hey Rob baby, since she passed out, can you say Anglophile to me??
        Rob: I thought you’d never ask, my Anglophilic Angel… Now let’s get naked!

        πŸ˜€ :>

      • leisha Says:


        What I didn’t tell you was that Rob and I were already naked and…..

        well, I don’t need to spell the rest out for you. πŸ˜‰

    Ok billll,,,
    1st thanx for the mr bean and mr collins(slurrrrp!) 2nd im not to thrilled about the london song:( 3rd is this like the movie bliss and you need a wet vac before someone dare to utter the……B? i do have a shop vac at home now and it is very powerfull. maybe we can superglue it to u where it counts and …gasp..maybe ROB will be the only one to be able to remove it with his magical superglue dissolving saliva?
    I think that would put you in da hospital..not such a pretty picture. anyhoo i still havent seen the movie and now i think im scared to see tis movie for everyone who has hasbeen immediatly smitten by this vampire dude. my life is not ready for another idol just yet and i protest myself seeing this movie until my heart remends if ever that happens at all. until then i will relish in your obsession from afar………..luv ya billllll

    • sloopy1975 Says:

      Hey Bill, I’m glad you enjoyed the Phil Collins pic, I knew you’d appreciate it… and of course Mr. Bean for obvious reasons lol πŸ˜‰

      You may have to get me a shop vac… you sure painted a pretty picture to me… that imagery just put me at jizzcon5 for sure…

      Yes you need to see Twilight and join the obsession… it’ll help you get over the loss… *le sigh* swoon with me, bill, lol πŸ˜€

      ❀ ya too Bill πŸ™‚

  4. sasloon Says:

    ROTFLMAO at BILLLLLLLLLLLL!!! Shop-vac, stat. πŸ˜›

    @Sloop–yes. Yes. Two of just thousands of the great things ol’ Blighty has to offer. I am a RAGING Anglophile, have 4 UK trips under my belt and countless other evidence to prove it. Including an appearance on the very DVD you highlight. Excellent choice. πŸ™‚

    As I noted to an Aussie friend somewhere on Facebook, however, I have completed the 12-step program to get over a certain musician. *laughs*

    Recommendation for another London song: Warren Zevon, “Werewolves of London”. πŸ˜‰

    • sloopy1975 Says:

      Ahh yes I forgot about Werewolves Of London, good tune… but London Calling was the first one I thought of and so I went with it… πŸ™‚

      And yes, I picked that particular pic of Mick/SR cuz of your appearance in the DVD. I knew you’d catch that… I was actually trying to find a current pic with all the band members, I went through pages and pages of pics but could only find pics of Mick and the occasional line-up ala “Men & Women” time period… tried to find a pic with a certain bassist you fancy πŸ˜‰

      I need a 12 step program… ugh… lol.. πŸ˜€

      • sasloon Says:

        The only reason you can’t find pics with the full current band is ’cause I took them all and my albums aren’t public anymore. *laughs* The backstage caper capture hanging on my wall will suffice. *giggles*


    dido 2 the diff song billllll


    no not DILDO ….gosh bill get that rob off your mind…..D i D ooo

    • sloopy1975 Says:

      Dildo? *poof*

      I just had an image in my brain of HHH’s (His Holy Hotness, for you newbies, lol) magnifique Peen……. *DIES*

  7. sloopy1975 Says:
