Cause I like spreading the joy I nominate: Scarlet-Blue, Hottie, Dave, Kaz, and Just Curious. Let me know if you decide to tackle the meme anyway.


  1. I was wondering about line-dancing for our blog-meet.

  2. dave ~ Really. No.

  3. Handy. I'd rather be dead than dance.

  4. dave ~ yeah, you and every other straight Englishman.

  5. At least Dave's been forewarned about No 24!

  6. Rog ~ I'm trying to come up with a witty retort and failing miserably. I'm going to have a lie down and get back to you on that one.

  7. I like smoking too! But I drink tea. And dunk digestives.
    Thank you for the tag!

  8. ms scarlet ~ I drink tea when the coffee shakes get too bad, or when I'm sick. I don't dunk, I like my crunchy things, crunchy; not soggy.

  9. That was interesting what is worrying is a lot made sense even the ones that did not make sense, except you want to go back to school? that shows a wide streak of insanity!!

  10. vetnurse ~ methinks you read that too quick...or what I wrote in my head was not what appeared on screen (which frequently happens).

    What I meant is that I don't ever want to go back to school. Ugh. The only problem with reincarnation is that you have to live through puberty yet again. It's put me off.

  11. I'll put up my one tomorrow. Probably.

  12. ps I'm in Norwich Monday morning (optician's appointment 10.20) - don't suppose you're free to meet up for a coffee/spot of lunch?

  13. dave ~ I look forward to your take on the meme. Unfortunately, I take up gainful employment again on Monday. The good news is I can eat, drink and be merry on Tuesdays and Fridays. Give me a week to get over the shock of working for a living and let's organise something for the week after.

  14. Great answers!

    I'm more of a tea person but I'm learning to drink coffee through the joys of caffefrappalattemachiatos

  15. Is it time for cocktails yet?

  16. CyberPete ~ hail and welcome. Nice to see you round here. Thanks.

    I'd love a cocktail thanks. For some reason I just fancy a Long Island Iced Tea. Don't ask me why. I dunno.

  17. Hope that work isn't too stressful.

  18. dave ~ work was great thanks. Today's jobs: procrastination.

  19. I cannot bear to think of you without your coffee.
    If you can't afford it just leave a comment in my box and I'll send vouchers.

  20. kaz ~ you star! The same goes for you and your DMs. I'm always here for you.

  21. Right now I fancy a bucks fizz

  22. cyberpete ~ it's your birthday honey, have a virtual bucks fizz on me!

  23. Thanks darling!

    What's on the menu today?

  24. cyberpete ~ as I've just come back from work, I think I'll crack open a bottle of cider and put my feet up. Fancy one as well?

  25. Hi Roses - I've had a go at the tag - but don't hold your breath.

  26. kaz ~ I'm waiting...just so you know, I'm not known for my patience...

  27. That sounds nice!


  28. Except for the bit about accepting a groom who gets to the church on time adorned in the meterosexual resplendency of pink tux and crocs, you sound disturbingly normal...
    what if HE was a fireman?

    I appreciate your honesty.

  29. cyberpete ~ cider is gooood. Hits the spot.

    donn ~ call me normal again and there will be trouble. Besides I thought you were quite bad.

    And no, I wouldn't marry him, even if he was a fireman.
