Anyway, see, we're both nice, Chris. But not like biscuits. (Though I do like nice biscuits...)

Surely 'nice' means 'fine'? Which may also refer to biscuits and such people as we all are...

Claire (correct?) has done an complete listing of interests and so forth in "All about us."
All about us. , but that escapes the – persuasion – for the seventy-five word extravaganza.

Ciao, bienvenuto oh lasciverous one (what, did I get the spelling wrong? Or the translation?). I've noticed your interest in limericks; I don't get involved in the playrooms thread, 'cause I like my limericks to scan precisely; see:–advanced limmerickitis

But you could follow my instructions to the 'bot, and investigate… actually I think the nice biscuits are so called after a town in the south of France not quite Italy, but not far), and the word 'nice' (as its antonym, naughty) has been so overused in juvenile situations as to me almost washed clean of meaning by now (I will accept the 'precise', and Agnes Nutter). Actually, no-one would get upset if you did as her Honour suggested, and got generally welcomed; the trouble with everyone piling onto one thread is that it's difficult to answer; like a reception where you're swept on to the next introduction before you've had time to size up, let alone converse with the previous one…

Mind you, not meeting any of us too closely might have been exactly what you were aiming for.
