    Questions to add: What the h was that all about?
    Who’s Eric Dane? Should I care?

    Number of loyal readers retained?
    ditto ditto highly entertained? (answer: all)

      It wasn’t about much at all. You should know by know that it hardly ever is 🙂

      Eric Dane? He sailed from Greenland and ran aground on Newfoundland. No? Then he’s the chap with eye-liner who likes Hitler? Oh no – that one is called Garibaldi or something. Wiki will know – wiki knows all.

      There should be a site called ‘I Knaa Nowt’, where everything is kept secret.

    Maybe you should put all those stats into a graph. A pie graph, maybe? Or a Malteser graph. It would be interesting to see how all the numbers relate to each other; very well, I would imagine. I don’t think they’d fight. 🙂

    I jumped to the end when reading this (lost in between *.*)

    Another perfectly expressed post, Tilly.

    Pass the popcorn, please. (I know better than to ask for a malteser)

    Who is Eric Dane?


    • Tilly Bud March 2, 2011 at 12:20 #

      Dr McSteamy in ‘Grey’s Anatomy’. Link higher up.

    There is something wonderfully wrong with you.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
