Catch-Up Time

2009 Five Presidents, President George W. Bush...

When did you realize you were an adult? (If you haven’t yet, when do you think you will?)

When I stop feeling the need to answer every WordPress prompt.

Imagine you get a magic gold ticket that lets you travel through space and time to see any band, or music act, living or dead, together or broken up, live at a venue near you. Who would you pick? Why?

I’d go to see The Beatles in The Cavern before they were famous, and tell my Mum to save any tickets or programmes left lying around so we could live off the sales.  That woman had no prescience.

How do you recover lost trust?

Oh, I haven’t been on a train in ages.

If you could script tonights dream, would would the plot be?

Weeelll, I’d probably start with a WordPress prompter and a wood chipper; then I’d throw in all the missing apostrophes…

What is the best gift you’ve ever received?

This question, because it allows me to trot out once again my favourite punchline.  Apologies to my long-standing readers, who must have heard it at least twice. 

I collect American political memorabilia, including the signatures of American presidents (I have no affiliation and will take the bad with the good).  One Christmas the Hub bought me a golf ball signed by President George W. Bush.  I love being able to say, ‘I have the balls of the most powerful man in the world in my hand.’

    LOL!! You haven’t been on a train in ages – that’s where a lot of trust is lost!

    Your mum threw away Beetles programmes?

      TBH, there probably weren’t any because she saw them before they were famous, but I figure if I can time-travel, I can make a few programmes appear.

    I’m worried about you. That was a big post. And no mention of a Malteser anywhere. Are you ok?

    You had the balls of the most powerful MONKEY in the world in your hands! ( With apologies to all monkeys out there). Don’t get me started on Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg…I think there would be a fight for their balls!

      I wondered if that one would drag you out of your self-imposed seclusion 🙂

    some interesting information about you in here 😉


    • Tilly Bud April 5, 2011 at 21:55 #

      Ooo, I never thought about what I was giving away 🙂

    Fun post, Tilly.

    I delete more of the WP prompts than I use. 😀


    • Tilly Bud April 5, 2011 at 21:43 #

      I can’t bring myself to; but I am having a lot of fun with them.

    I’ll help you shovel into to that wood chipper. Oops, used an apostrophe.


    • Tilly Bud April 5, 2011 at 21:40 #

      No, no! You used it correctly. I’m talking about all those ones the prompter has misplaced, lost, or discarded.

    I love your last paragraph!

    Hi Tilly Bud. Just found your site because you ticked mine. Thanks.
    Love your humour (are you English) as am I. And I agree withthe apostrophe comments. It drives me mad. Another thing is plurals. Seen when I took the car for service “Warrant of Fitnesses done here”. The receptionist couldn’t understand what I was talking about.


    • Tilly Bud April 5, 2011 at 22:21 #

      Yes, I am English. How can you tell? lol 🙂

      That sign would have had me turning the car around and looking for somewhere else. Good job I can’t drive!

      I found your blog because there was a pingback – we both wrote about the song ‘I Can See Clearly Now.’ It’s a small world.

      Thanks for stopping by to say hello 🙂

    Oh how I remember English Maltesers – they don’t taste the same here in New Zealand.

      You must get your relatives to send you some.

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.
