WordPress Prompts Catch-Up

30 Oct
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Do you think Shakespeare existed?


But does it matter?  It doesn’t make any difference who wrote the plays: the words are all that count.

Bill, I’ve got your back.


What makes someone beautiful?

An offer to clean my house in one hand and a bag of Maltesers in the other.


Where is the most relaxing place in your world?

Underneath the Hub’s hand as he strokes my hair.  I’m out before he can shout, ‘Shut up and go to sleep, will you!’  (His alternative method of inducing repose in his beloved consort.)


Have you ever had to fire someone?

No, but I was once tempted to stick a catherine wheel where the Hub’s sun don’t shine. 

I say ‘once’…

Do you like surprises?

Yes, and if anyone wants to throw me a surprise birthday party when I turn fifty, I promise to enjoy it.


How do you know when it’s time to go?

I get a little damp patch around my lower-middle area.

    What makes someone beautiful?
    My father always used to say

    Little dabs of powder, little spots of apint
    make a girl look pretty,
    when she really ain’t.

      I think covering a child in beer amounts to abuse 😉

    Reading your blog, I have discovered all kinds of WordPress features I had not really noticed before. I like most of your answers above, especially the Shakespeare answer. It is words that count, deeds don’t matter, even if my Mom said “Actions speak louder than words.”

      It’s all about the context, isn’t it?

    I wondered about that prompt when I read the title – are wordpress running out of ideas?

      Really, it was about leaving somewhere. I omitted the rest of the question for my own nefarious purposes 🙂

    I was 50 once — 15 years ago. lol. Nobody threw me a surprise party back then. boo-hoo!!!

      It’s never too late. Drop lots of hints 🙂

    Saved me the trouble of a catch up post and gave my readers a laugh. Reblogged. You make my morning and often my day and then a final good night guffaw. Thank you.


    • Tilly Bud October 30, 2011 at 18:10 #

      That’s the nicest thing anyone could say to me. Thank you 🙂

    Hahahaha! I would also find someone beautiful id they came to clean my house 😉


    • Tilly Bud October 30, 2011 at 22:03 #

      That’s it; beauty is from within, especially if it looks like bleach 🙂

    A 50th birthday party with a clean up service and more afterwards (if party is in the home)is a good package deal. 🙂

    Glad you’ve got Bill’s back. he’s had a hell of a time.

      It is the fate of genii to be reviled as much as they are revered 😦

    You are the Queen of one-liners, Tilly! Thanks for my morning chuckle. 🙂

    Sometimes being concise says it all!

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.
