    Default Who else misses Paul G?

    This is a post for all the old timers -- you know, the people who have been here forever.

    For quite some time now, i have thinking about this off and on. Am i the only one who misses Paul G's sometimes blunt and often very funny posts? Who will ever forget Cap n Crunch!

    Paul, it truly would be nice to hear from you more often. Only if you have the time of course. I and many others i'm sure, miss ya.

    I do too as well as Col and several of the other old timers.
    I was away for a long while and was disappointed that lots of people left. It's understandable but still, they are missed.

    Paul....are you out there.... calling Pauls Carlton Gamboa.... :-)

    I miss PaulG. He was one of the people I chatted with regularly on the board and enjoyed his posts. He had me convinced that Piper Nigrum was the greatest scent ever.

    He logs in regularly, I'm glad to say, and I miss his genius posts too. Who can forget that Olivier Creed will millesime-spray you to the face?

    Oh my god. Hilarious. I had forgotten that...

    Am I hallucinating or does he still post occasionally?
    There are a few that I miss. Then there are those that arrive with a flurry of posts for a while, then fade away...

    There was a chat room here before ( about two years ago ) and he was one of the regulars.... I haven't been here in a while so I guess Grant took it off. Anyway, Paul was a lot of fun the the room:-)

    I agree totally. Paul had the best stories ever-- the Cap'n Crunch/Hanae Mori story will forever remain one of my favorite things ever on Basenotes. Too bad was on the old boards and is probably lost. Also, I always enjoyed hearing what the kids in his class thought of his SOTD (They thought Creed Santal Imperial smelled like a quesadilla-- and when I wear Santal Imperial, I have that thought in the back of my mind). Also, who could forget the Millesime Imperial/Hooters Waitress story. Or the time his buddy opened his fridge looking for a beer and found fragrances in there and was shocked!

    Paul, if you're reading this, you're sorely missed.

    That goes for CoL, and some other folks as well.

    Paul is currently being held hostage and being beaten by a Cubs fan he mouthed off too. See, the Cubs just might win a world series this year for the first time since well Cher was in diapers (99 years). Shoulda cheered for the Yankees Paul, Boston folk are soft unlike the bad boys from Chi-towns North.

    Cheers,
    Al

    Amen, good to see a cubs fan. It's sad all these guys are going on the DL. Soriano can't stop getting hurt, Zambrano was having problems with his soulder too.

    Ooooh let me clear the air, I'm not a Cubs fan but Paul is a die hard White Sox fan. I'm a Yankees and Pirates fan. this year I get to watch my team lose or I get to watch my team lose. It's great. But I would love to see the Cubs win it all. They deserve one already and they got former players from my 2 teams playing for them. But DO IT DUDE!!! Talk smack about the White Socks and praise the Cubs in some off topic posts and PAUL WILL RETURN FROM THE DEAD!!! In fact if everyone wants Paul back just talk about the Cubs in EVERY post and he will return

    Cheers,
    Al

    Nothing about fragrances but this thread never really was huh? Does Soriano speak English yet btw?

    Nice to see Al still admits he's a Pirates fan (me too). Somebody needs to post the infamous picture of Paul G dressed up for Halloween.

    There was also the time Paul doused the soles of his feet so that the smell of Piper Nigrum would waft upwards all night once he started shaking his money maker at the disco.

    Cub fans drive me crazy. This weekend my bar is going to be flooded with them as they come to town to watch the Cubs play my beloved Cardinals. I'm bristling at the notion already. If the Cubs should manage to win a WS, I'm going to lock myself in my house for at least a year. Can't stand the thought. Anyway, I found the events of 2003 particularly delicious.

    It turns out PaulG was actually Steve Bartman and is in hiding until the Cubs win the World Series.

    Paul I'll put a voodoo curse on the White Sox, Bulls, and Bears (the Hawks might actually play better with a curse so I'll leave them alone) if you dont post something by next week. Then I'll have George Pradel make Beatles music illegal to play or own. You have 7 days . . .

    Paul G loved Piper Nigrum and I could never understand why. But I have to thank him for recommending Passage d'Enfer and Geir to me. They're my treasures.

    Oh yeah, how could you forget his Will Ferrell avatar? Staring at it for so long drove me nuts.

    Where to begin......my head hangs in shame. Hello again everyone and thanks for the shout out here. I had hit a bit of a rough patch the last year but this is a sign and enough to get me back here more regularly. It's funny that I just heard about this as today I had wore the fragrance that brought me here in the first place, Bvlgari Pour Homme and had forgotten how wonderful it is. Suffice to say I promise to become a more regular presence now and to let everyone else know that the rumors of Green Irish Tweed and Guerlain Vetiver being the reasons that the air quality in Beijing is so horrific are true.

    "I exist for myself, and for those to whom my unquenchable thirst for freedom gives everything, but also for everyone, since insofar as I am able to love - I love everyone. Of noble hearts, I am the noblest - and the most generous of those that yearn to give love in return. - I am a human being, I love death and I love life."
