Northener looking for fun people to hang out with in Zollikerberg

Hi everyone,

Now Ive got time to waste and browse tinternet, I came upon this website and thought Id sign up to see if there are any fun people living in or near this buzzing hub of Zollikerberg which is between Zurich and Forch.

I love exploring the area on my ebike, thwarting the puzzlemasters of escape and adventure rooms, lasertag, airsoft, badminton, video games (Im still hooked on my Wii and WiiU) and trying out stuff Ive never done before. Ok, paragliding didnt work out too well, what with an injured foot, but Im willing to try out most adventurous things. But not hiking. Cant stand it.

Im from Cumbria, which is in the northwest of England for everyone not knowledgeable of UK geography, I lived in South Germany for many years before ending up in this lovely area. I like beer, coffee, cheese and a good chinwag. Oh and Ill probably end up as a crazy cat lady although I dont have any furballs of my own at the mo

So if anyone feels like wasting a couple of hours with me, just drop me a line

Ayeup newbee. Pity you're not a proper northerner from Yorkshire like me, but you'll do. There's not much of a social life in this forum these days (there was some years ago) most of the social life has been taken over by the evil Facebook.

Well, judging from the comments, it's at least the Jersey-side of England I'm assuming.

Hello Northerner and welcome to the forum.
Thanks lost_inbroad! BTW is there a "thank" or "thumbs up" button around so I dont have to plaster the whole message board with loads of thanks messages? Ive been staring at the monitor for so long now that Ive gone square-eyed, and that dunt go well with the rest of me face.

Ee by gum, its a reet honour to be accepted by a Yorkshireman, thanking you nicely. Im not a great fan of the mighty FB, as it never shows owt in the right order and it hides posts from me too

Anyways, am hoping to find people who are looking for real life socialising and going for out a beer or two or even a sticky cocktail in summer.

Welcome to the forum. What video games do you play?
Thanking you nicely, its good to be here.
At the moment Im playing Splatoon, one of the Raymond Rabbids, and Wii Party (bit of a competition going on there with the neighboursdaughter). Im lucky enough to have me own Oculus Rift and me faves right now are Dance Collider, Fruit Ninja (Ive got to unlock all the swords before I can stop, its a weird compulsion I have), Beat Sabre, and for a bit of proper action, a few rounds of good old zombie shooting on Arizona Sunshine.

PS I just HAVE to ask: you do steal the fleeces while they are still attached to the sheep?

You're very welcome. Youse not eligible for a thank you button as yet, I forgot the rules, but you'll get them eventually. Have you been to the war memorial 'round your neck of the woods already?

Well, when yuvv grown up in a place full of OAPs and the most exciting thing to happen is a high tide, yer certainly knocked sideways here. Not only are there *2* supermarkets, *3* tram stops, a community hall where Ive already bin to 2 events this year, and a pond full of frogs opposite a field of goats (its starting to sound like the League of Gentlemen...), theres also even bigger supermarkets just a cuppla miles down the road and real live massive parrots living in with ducks and a black swan.

The days just fly by...

I am uncertain what that means in your language but I'm assuming that you've hit the nail on the head.

This is a weird thread.

Quite poetic, I like it.

Though stealing fleeces sounds scary.
