AIBU to want Professor David Wilson all to myself?

I don't think so.

I want him to be mine, all mine, and to have in-depth discussions about serial killers over a cheese board and port with me at every feasible opportunity.

I believe that's extremely reasonable Grin

Yeah OK. You have him and I'll have Stephen Hawking. He's just my type of man....Grin. Oh, and he has a nice set of wheels too, so I win hands down Wink.


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 05/04/2013 15:00

Just watch out, I've heard he's a ladies man Wink

Ooh I wuf him. He is so interesting and watchable.


CommanderShepard · 05/04/2013 15:24

I've worked with him - he kisses me on the cheek when I see him :)


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 06/04/2013 00:24

Too late Chip, my claim on him has been validated Grin

Commander, please tell him he's wonderfully engaging and pass on my number when I PM it to you

If we were only going for subjects that interested us then I'd do you over to get first in line go for him, if it was an interest free free-for-all I'm prof Coxs bird every time.


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 06/04/2013 15:04

Lets have the free for all AgentZ & leave my Proff Totty alone Grin

Oh, professorial crushes. Grin

Nearly 30 years ago, I fell for Professor A J Pollard of the University of Teesside. Actually, he might not have been a professor then, I can't remember.

This has never left me. I still carry a torch for him even though he must be in his 70s now. Shock

My dad's a professor and knows Brian Cox. He is... less than complimentary - and my dad loves everyone :(


EllieArroway · 06/04/2013 19:06

This is my geek of choice...I saw him first


AgentZigzag · 06/04/2013 21:34

Grin at getting all steamed up over Horizon, cool being married to a prof though.

Are you able to say why your Dad's not keen on prof cox Commander? Him having a sweaty handshake would be less of a let down than if he'd come over as the big I Am.


kennyp · 06/04/2013 22:28

Big dave is all over channel five like a cheap suit at the moment. I am a huuuuuuuuge fan. pick me, prof


CommanderShepard · 06/04/2013 23:10

Apparently he's so far up his own bottom that he is, I quote, "a human pretzel" :(


auldspinster · 06/04/2013 23:28

I can believe that. Still would though.


auldspinster · 06/04/2013 23:32

Oops, getting my Profs confused, I meant Wilson not Cox. I'd rather do the latter's big Dundonian namesake.


KurriKurri · 06/04/2013 23:47

oh yes - he's nice, lovely voice and keen on serial killers - what more could you ask for? Grin

I once had a proposal (the marriage kind) from someone called David Wilson, - alas not the David Wilson we are discussing, but I think you will agree that gives me some sort of high priority position on the 'being chosen by David Wilson' leader board.

I turned him down BTW, - (my David Wilson, not Professor David Wilson - he hasn't offered yet)


AgentZigzag · 06/04/2013 23:48

"a human pretzel"

What a great turn of phrase your dad has Grin

I was only window shopping anyway...


AgentZigzag · 06/04/2013 23:55

You've got a strong argument there Kurri, but the OP's borderline stalker and I'm not sure she wouldn't see committing murders as a legit way of getting to meet him Grin


ItsallisnowaFeegle · 08/04/2013 17:30

there is no borderline stalker, only fully fledged PDW garbage sniffer & will use techniques learned from Proff DW to stake my claim Not at all AgentZ, I'm all for fair game Wink

KurriKurri · 08/04/2013 17:43

In that case I will restate my 'got a proposal from a but not the David Wilson' claim to the lovely Professor Grin
