I take it from the meme that Chuck's advice on headers didn't help? :(

kirsty said...

ps Yes, it was the middle of the night but we got home very late from Son's school formal (Graduation) and I was waiting for him to call and say he'd had enough of the post-formal party and was ready to be picked up! He lasted about twenty minutes. "Everyone's plastered. It's not very entertaining."

it did, and I got a picture up, but it was huge so now I have to shrink it down and resubmit it.

thanks for the link, it was really useful and I'm going to see if I can change a few other things too.

No, drunken people are rarely entertaining especially if you're not drinking yourself. wise boy!

and now I am off to bed. Good night

Your popcorn answer was great.

Stomper Girl said...

Mary Queen of Scots?
Robbie Burns?
Oscar Wilde?

Thankyou for the towels answer. I was shocked by that question, shocked. Are there really people out there who would only use their bath towels once?

Queen Victoria?

velcro said...

Stomper, if my famous ancestor was Queen Vicky do you think I would be living in South London? And I wish it had been Oscar Wilde (and I had inherited his wit).

Nope, am not going to say

I wasn't sure if they meant to ask if you use your bathtowel more than once, or if you use it for something else after your shower ie to wear as an item of clothing. I took the safe (and boring) line.
