      Hey,

      I just moved (5 months ago) from Newcastle to Gib. Where in Newcastle did you come from and where in Gib are you living? Were you active in the Newcastle poker scene? If so I wil almost definitely know you.

      There are 4/5 Geordies about now and you are more than welcome to join for drinks next season when we qualify for Europe.

      No problem Belayd.

      A Geordie is somebody who comes from Newcastle. Newcastle is a big city in the North of England and generally famous for its nightlife, women in short skirts, its underachieving football team and poor weather.

      Re underachieving football team.

      I now owe a colleague a large amount of vodka because we failed to finish higher in the league than his team (villa).

      sigh.

      welcome to this sunny part of the world nonetheless, geordie.
