Yeah Folly, I'm confused as to why he won't reply to the question of "How was his holiday". It's sort of like we stuck a hand of friendship out and he's brushed us.
Seroiusly, it was all "I'm going to Oz blah, blah, blah". As soon as we said that we'd put a barbie on in his honour we never heard from him again.
He comes across as a sincere person (and from the amount of interested created by the mention of a barbie, several others appreciate the man and would have liked to meet him too) and I can't understand why he's gone all shy.
