101/1001 (15)

8 Jul

Another quiet week on the challenge front.

I did learn of one new Maltesers game thanks to Fi Sefton:

Put a big bag of Maltesers in a bowl, take it in turns to pick up (and eat if you can pick it up) a Malteser with a pair of chopsticks.

I like the sound of this game and I might introduce it as a new Christmas tradition, with a specially-purchased box, of course, because Tilly doesn’t share Maltesers.

There is one drawback: I fear for my family’s eyesight.  Anyone who manages to capture and eat more Maltesers than me may just find themselves walking around with a chopstick poking out of their skull.  At least it will give them somewhere to hang their coat when they find themselves on the street.


Many of the challenges are ongoing – learning kings and things, for example; but there is one I completed long ago that I haven’t mentioned: I know the South African anthem off by heart. 

I haven’t mentioned it because I haven’t gotten around to being video taped singing it.  I’ll get on that this week.  Better hurry: there’s likely to be a rush on ear plugs.

    Another game: put people in teams of two. One person in each pair has a bowl of maltesers, same amount for each team. Other person has a straw and an empty bowl. Idea is to suck up maltesers and deposit the in second bowl. Winning team is the one who does it fastest.

    If you can just think of a few more games, Tilly, you could hold the Malteser Olympics.

      Debbie, I can’t see that working – Tilly’s team (Tilly and a dobbelganger) would gobble them all up before they realised what the game was about.

      That’s another good one, Debbie. My only problem is that all of these games seem to involve other people eating the Maltesers.

    If you gave me a pair of chopsticks, I would win without a doubt!

    Uit die blou van onse hemel,
    Uit die diepte van ons see,
    Oor ons ewige gebergtes,
    Waar die kranse antwoord gee,..

      Ah, but do you know all the other language bits, like wot I smugly do?

    I’d have to take up that challenge with Gigi. 🙂

    Chopsticks and Maltesers? Sounds like an interesting game!

    I have earplugs. What are we waiting for?

    The camera one, I mean, not the comment about being random.

    I think you need to design yourself some special set of chopsticks…


    • Tilly Bud July 11, 2011 at 11:35 #

      As if I have time, what with all the blogging and eating and gaming… 🙂

    We have about 5 1/2 months left before Christmas – plenty of time for you to practise pîcking up maltesers with chopsticks without the rest of your family knowing. 🙂 I used to get my children picking up peas and peanuts (not at the same time) with chopsticks so that they knew how to use them properly.

    I think it’s a great game idea… But each person must have their own chopsticks and the winner keeps all. 😉 No eye poking will be needed… 😆

      No eye poking…? Where’s the fun in that?

    Sounds like a cool game 🙂

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.
