I don't think that expression means what you think it does, since this article is all gushing about ideas you think are cool. Reply You mean it doesn't mean lubricating our ladyparts? GODDAMMIT I'VE BEEN USING IT WRONG ALL THIS TIME. Reply I tried so HARD to find a venue to create something urban like this because I think these have a wonderful feel to them. I emailed out owners of scruffy factories and a hundred other places, but I literally couldn't find anything at all. I wonder if it's more difficult in the UK? I did spot some reasonably priced possible venues of this ilk in London but I'm in the Midlands and have only been able to find one (that I can't afford) *sad trombone* 🙂 Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
