Which beach shots ? the recent ones from France ? they were done just a couple of months ago...
Most of the shots on your profile - both the front page and the public gallery - strike me as more flattering than the black and white one that you have as the preferred image last time I looked. Sea and sun and tan, plus reasonably posed shots that aren't over-the-top professional, generally look better than an amorphous black and white image. I thought your only reason for using the black and white one might be that the beach shots were very out of date and you wanted to be extra honest. If they are recent, I'd make more prominent use of them.
Firstly it wasn't insulting,
Thankfully someone can tell the difference!
secondarily it wasn't funny
Yeah well, no accounting for taste - or maybe I wouldn't expect you to find it that funny as you were the subject matter. Not that I ever claimed it was. Somebody else did - leaping needlessly to your defence. Would you rather I was deadly serious and mocking? No, and so far there would be no call for it either.
... it was a rather shallow and superficial wordplay that was so presumptuous in its affectation of wit it doesn't really deserve acknowledgement.
Fuck me, so you're saying that's two of us that like pretentiously long words are you?
And by the way, James "would like to see" every WG's
tax returns. If he doesn't find the dig offensive I don't see why you should.
