8 out of 10 Pompts Said WordPress Preferred It

6 Dec

If you needed more time, where would you take from?

I would say ‘housework’, but that would only give me an extra ten minutes a day.  I can’t say ‘blogging’ because I need my minimum four hours at the computer or my head will explode but, much worse – people might stop reading me.  Eating takes up another four hours.  Cooking, twenty minutes.

There is no time.  What will I do in an emergency?  Like I do in a financial emergency, I’ll have to put it on my credit card, or panic. 

Now, back to blogging; I’ve been away long enough.  

Do you work too much or too little?

At what?

  • A job. I wish.
  • Housework. The dust bunnies are out to get me.
  • Blogging. Need…more…hours…
  • Marriage. That’s his job.


Explain your strategy for life.  Why are you here?

It was the Sixties and my parents were in love…

What do you hope to achieve?

The first case of a slim body with a fat appetite, without the benefit of intestinal worms.

What matters most to you, at work, at play, or at home?

That I get food when I need it.

How did you come to develop your approach to living?

I was born.  I started breathing and liked it.

Which parents, friends, aliens or spirits influenced your choices about how to live?

Both, all, ET, rum.

The Product: WordPress Prompts

The Review: Do you really want me to go there?

    Really? Those are actual prompts? I like how you give them the attention they deserve.

      Some are even weirder – something about a sack full of kittens on a train track, with a train heading their way was one highlight.

    You are one clever Malteser….I love Maltesers and I loved your post but I think I love Maltesers the most

    Hail to the Queen of prompt answering, you have the gift for the irreverent!


    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 11:46 #

      A lifetime spent watching and reading satire 🙂

    I’d love to see you do your own writing prompts…


    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 11:47 #

      Too much like hard work! The prompters have a tough job and I don’t make it easier.

    I just love your sense of humour…when are you visiting Africa?


    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 11:48 #

      Got no more relatives there, so when we win the lottery, probably. 😦

    I think I prefer real Tilly to the wordpress p[rompts

    Of course people would stop reading your blog if you stopped writing you silly goose.

    On a serious note, How do you get the flag counter to work. I want to see if Miss Whiplash really lives in Bulgaria.



    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 11:50 #

      She really does.

      I forget how I got it now. Click on it and it will take you to the site and you will probably find instructions there.

    “The first case of a slim body with a fat appetite, without the benefit of intestinal worms.”
    You are an unsung genus.


    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 11:51 #

      You’re just saying that because I called you ‘sublime’. You do know I meant you’re a bit of a lemon, don’t you? 🙂


  9. Grannymar December 6, 2011 at 23:34 #

    I enjoy your turn of phrase no matter where the inspiration comes from.


  10. ElizOF December 7, 2011 at 02:17 #

    You are relentless! 😆 Thank you Tilly for hanging in there with me while I tried to adjust to a new schedule and found myself unable to follow up on blog comments… I’m doing a marathon blog hopping to catch up on comments tonight and hope to get though as many as possible. 🙂


    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 11:54 #

      Please don’t feel obliged to read every post you missed – when it stops being fun, you shouldn’t do it.


  11. bluebee December 7, 2011 at 02:18 #

    “Why are you here?” – WordPress can’t be serious! If we could answer that others would be doing our housework and our exercise


  12. artjen1971 December 7, 2011 at 02:46 #

    Weird…I don’t remember writing this…canadian mist instead of rum, though. Must have been a typo…


  13. Yulia December 7, 2011 at 02:53 #

    Aha, look like you answer all questions promptly 😀


    • Tilly Bud December 7, 2011 at 11:56 #

      😀 Actually, I’m always weeks behind 😉


  14. jmgoyder December 7, 2011 at 03:48 #

    I think you give the ‘pompts’ what they deserve!


  15. artjen1971 December 7, 2011 at 13:09 #

    Hey! this has nothing to do with this post, but I noticed you have the falg counter. I went to the sight and tried to upload it to my blog, and no matter what I did, I could never get it to show up in my right margin. Any advice?


    • Tilly Bud December 8, 2011 at 11:08 #

      TBH, I can’t remember how I got it up there. I struggled and somebody gave me advice. I’ll see if I kept the email, but it might be worth putting a request up on your blog for help in the meantime.

  17. Gobetween December 7, 2011 at 19:21 #

    I’m also here because “It was the Sixties and my parents were in love…” 🙂 😀

    I hope you’re not asking Santa for better WordPress prompts for 2012. What fun would it be if you couldn’t make fun of the poor WordPress interns anymore?


    • Tilly Bud December 9, 2011 at 10:12 #

      Absolutely not! The prompts are the delight of my blogging life 🙂


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.
