Dudes,

After the requisite recce work by myself, Davey and others over the weekend at the Dive Show in Brum, I've put to Louise T that she don her diving glad-rags and come for a wet with the troop on a gig! See her response below.

Right, what should I wear???

PLEASE can you sort it for when I'm off work as I missed the Brum gig....

How about getting her down on the TDI gig in November? A lot of us are training then but Bren's gonna be a ligger and come along anyhow so why not go full scale?

Err ... no offence but who cares?

She's just a semi-pro hack and why aren't we as positive about all our potential new recruits ... or are you all star-struck saddoes. I never thought so ...

Or are you all taking the piss?

Don't know the lady in question, but hay ho, meeting for a dive, chat and general knees up is always good.

Ladies are much more interesting than rough necked northern monkeys anyway - (From Bolton at any rate!)

Erm.. actually Louise's membership is older than yours! I think it would be great to put YD in the potential for a Diver article.

Now-now, eh Gav??!!

Bit out of character for you mate? Touch of Journo-jealously there, perhaps?? ;)

All I meant was getting better exposure for YD and a possible write-up/pics in Diver by us meeting up with and doing a dive with Louise T. Can only be a good thing, don't ya thing??

I think its cold showers all round for some of you boys, you can easily tell who the married guys are (ie frothing at the keyboard, drroooolll...)

So Gavster, you a journalist? If so please excuse my anti-journo comments over on "Handbagnet"
Regards

Steve - no problems a true hack should get used to having the mickey taken. We are a lower form of life ... not as bad as lawyers tho'

Have a trawl through the back catatlogue of posts over on "Handbagnet", various opinions on the lady in question, all quite personal, so she must be thick-skinned

Well, I think a few words of explanation might be needed here.

Semi pro? - I'm not semi anything. My fulltime job is to look after Divernet, produce Dive Girl magazine, and write a monthly column and occasional articles for DIVER.

I don't get paid to go diving - that's what I choose to do in my own time, with my own money.

Thick skinned? - Any woman in my position has to be. Personal comments about my appearance or age or desirability don't bother me at all, but I will/do take exception when people make postings suggesting that I've lied / cheated / injured someone. A lot of people forget that Divernet is my workplace. If I came into your workplace and started making rude comments and accusations about you in front of your employers I think you might feel a tad aggrieved.

Diving with YD? - f*ck, why not!? I can't promise that you'll see an article in DIVER about it, because that isn't my decision. Even if I'm commissioned to write an article about something, there is no guarantee that it will be used by the editor if he doesn't think its good enough/interesting enough. However, lots of the diving that I do crops up in my columns and gets used in articles so you never know.

So. If after all that I'm still invited, lets sort out dates/places times.

<span =''>And you have the cheek to call Bren an internet-saddo?

Gawn, bugger off to the Red Sea you lucky, lucky dawg

PS Gavster - Looked up the Smokestack on your Baby and was there last night - chargrilled tuna steak is great! Why's it not listed in the "All restaurants" drop-down box btw? :whip:
