101/1001 (21) Another Late Update

21 Aug

I’m sure you’ll forgive me for not keeping to my self-imposed updating timetable when I remind you that I have young visitors; and that there’s really nothing to report.   It’s difficult to work on challenges when I have a full house.  I suppose that’s part of the challenge.

We do have two welcome new members of our beginning not to be so exclusive club:

Silly Wrong But Vivid Right and Vicrace Designs

You can check out the other members on the right; and while you’re doing that, think about joining us.


As I have nothing to report, I’ll flesh this post out with a general catch-up.


Of some worry to the management was the number of people (28.57%) who willingly admitted to being freaks in the recent Friends poll.  At least you’re honest.

More concern was felt at the number of huge fibbers who claimed to have a life (35.71%). If that were the case, you wouldn’t be filling in fatuous polls now, would you?


The number of compliments paid has fallen sharply after my begging letter.  Thank you. Especially to those who took it to the other extreme and offered gratuitous insults.  It’s nice to know you care.


Finally, something I read this week amused me:

Space is important; vital, really, if you’re a newspaper: this week on the Stockport Express website, there was a headline that ran

Man who looted charity box in Manchester riots in the dock. 

But they ran the story in a narrow left-hand column and it read

Man who looted charity box in Manchester
riots in the dock


Don’t you just love it?

    Keep on keeping on, and not so much with the apologies!

    Tilly, I’d join, but I have a hard enough time completing one task in 101 days. As is evidenced by the post it note on my calendar which has been harassing me with the same tasks for the last 3 months.

    I have however, been inspired by your joke a day challenge… However, I’ve decided to ease into it with a joke a week. I don’t want to burn out my funny bone prematurely.

    Well . . . I didn’t claim to have a life, but I did fib, just a bit.

    I wonder if anyone noticed? 😆

    I completed very little last week too because of the headache – but it’s gone now – yippee!

    And this week we have appointments all week. And most of them have to do with teeth… 😦

    But your post/comment totals will have gone up.

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.
