Terminators And Conditions

Do you believe machines will be smarter than humans?

Already happening: I can’t work my phone, my dvd player, my cooker, and almost all of this computer.  Fortunately, it’s not a problem: I have a technosavvy family to operate them for me; and John Connor is hiding somewhere in America right now, waiting to deal with that naughty Skynet when it tries to kill us all.

You won’t know who he is, so don’t try finding him: he has looked different every time I’ve seen him.

Describe a perfect meal.

I can’t pick just a few things, because I like food too much to choose between it.  I’ll settle for a buffet of everything I’ve ever liked

My one stipulation: there must be sprouts.  And roast potatoes.  Steak, egg, chips, at least sixteen different vegetables, a baguette with real buffer, hot, crisky chicken, a milk cuddy, a greem salad, a ga,,on (not too salty), a pran cocktail starter, because I’m a child of the Seventies, a fruit platteau wit los of strawfaierries…sorry, my fingers keep slipping off the keys because of the drool.

I’ll settle for a buffet of all food, from everywhere.  And perhaps a guest, to hold my head over the toilet when I’m done.

Write about your earliest memory.

3 a.m., getting up to drive to Zimbabwe from Johannesburg.

Sometimes, the prompter just asks for it.

    Brussels sprouts or bean sprouts?
    16 vegetables? *crosses cauliflower and mushrooms off the list*

      Brussels sprouts: definitely.

      Bean sprouts: I’d forgotten about them. Definitely.

      I’m impressed that you remember my dislikes. Would you like the honour of holding my head over the loo?

        I think I would make a cauliflower dish that you would eat without needing the loo …

    There must be sprouts! If that isn’t a book title I don’t know of one. You could take over the Guinness book record for shortest first sentence of a book from “I am born.” and Call me Ishmael.”.

    First line, chapter one — I sprouted.

    haha. you should have asked me that question about food. I love food — as you can tell from the zillion photos of food I take for my blog. lol.

    I wouldn’t like all my likes mixed up. One at a time, with a decent interval in between would be my choice, Like the fish pie we’ve just eaten with fresh-picked peas from the garden . No need for anything else just yet.

    Loved the random ending there – but I suppose it wasn’t random for you. I am having trouble with the perfect meal prompt – but there sure won’t be sprouts near it!

      ‘I suppose it wasn’t random for you’

      You totally get me, don’t you? 🙂

    A baguette with real butter is one of the best ways to start the day. Accompanied by a perfectly prepared cafe au lait (or cup of tea).

    I’m with you. When I planned my Fantasy Dinner Party . . . I planned a BUFFET of delights from around the world. I gained weight just thinking about it. 😉

      I’ve only had baguettes with butter for breakfast on holiday. Now that you mention it, I wonder why?

    Ah, a woman after my own stomach. You have impeccable taste.

    You and my mom sound similar about technology. We have had the same TV remote for 5+ years and she still can’t use it 😉

      Slap my forehead I knew I’d forgotten something! Hello to your Mom!

    You like SPROUTS and you don’t like cauliflower, mushrooms or courgettes????

    Sprouts are about the only vegetable I really can’t abide. Either the smell or the taste. I just can’t swallow them.


    • Tilly Bud July 14, 2011 at 20:54 #

      I adore sprouts and could eat them with just about anything.


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.
