More Of The Same

Do you think they’ll find the God Particle?

Depends how well He’s hidden it.

Describe the best breakfast you’ve ever eaten.

The one that someone else cooked.

What do you think of the new posting UI (the thing that happens when you hit the publish button)?


If you’re a WordPress blogger, you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from.

Write about these pictures of unusual structures:

There are some unusual structures to see if you click on the above picture.  Go take a look and come back and tell me all about it.  I never took geography at school and I’m not starting now.

Unless there’s a free field trip on offer…?

Do you think it’s ethical to use unmanned drones in war?

Yes.  Do you know how hard it is to mount a grown man on a bee?

Visit another blog, leave a comment, and post it.

I do this all the time; I don’t think I need to do it especially for the prompt.  It’s a sad blogger that needs to be prompted to do that, don’t you think?  And short-lived.*

*The blog, not the blogger: we don’t send out special killing squads to bloggers too rude to return our visits.  Well, not officially…

How do you stay true to yourself?

I never tell a lie.  No, that’s not true.  I hardly ever tell a lie because I always catch me out and that’s a sad conversation to have with yourself.  I’m pretty strict and I hate sending me to bed without any supper. 

What do you wish you had 300 off?

Is that a hundred more than the 200 off you gave us last time?  I can think of a couple of things.

  • Pounds off an item costing £301.

Oh, you meant, of?

  • Presents under the tree for my children.
  • Presents under the tree for me.
  • Presents under the tree for the Hub; who won’t like most of them and will give them to me.
  • Gerard Butlers.
  • Butlers.

Dear WordPress prompter, I’ll keep saying it until you believe it: ask me the same question, I’ll give you the same answer.

Dear Readers: my answer to this question was funnier last time, if you care to take a look.  I’m snotty, and not just in a condescending way; I’m tired; I’m grumpy; and I don’t have the energy to make more jokes about the same thing.

What was the last noble thing you did?

Answered one WordPress prompt seriously.

Um, I have to go to bed without any supper now.

Here’s the real answer:

Honoured my promise to award a box of Maltesers in my Christmas joke competition. 

The hardest thing I ever did was unclench from the parcel.  Did you ever see a monkey get hold of a nut in a jar?  That was me at the post office last week.

      Does it need a clean?

      I’m grumpy because my chest hurts from coughing and my nose hurts from blowing it and my head hurts from using it.

    Tilly B, you are just absolutely, without doubt, the funniest person I know. Your answers to these stupid questions were fantastic..I just hope that someone from WordPress reads them and then they will find some less stupid way of giving prompts.
    But you rose to the challenge and done well!


    • Tilly Bud December 20, 2011 at 12:29 #

      Thanks Miss Dubya. Nice to see you back to your cheery self 🙂

    You are pretty funny when you’re grumpy! 😀

    And go to bed without supper… just make sure someone else brings it up to ya later 😉

    Tilly! You are so funny and wonderful even when you’re sick – me too re sick, awful, awful flu. Get better!


    • Tilly Bud December 20, 2011 at 13:22 #

      Not flu, thank goodness! Hope you feel better soon; flu is awful.


  5. SchmidleysScribbling December 20, 2011 at 14:56 #

    Why did you hit the Humor tag twice today. Did you know dogs can get flu and the vets are now pushing dog flu shots?


    • Tilly Bud December 20, 2011 at 15:56 #

      I always do; if I use only one spelling, people on one side of the planet don’t find me.

      I didn’t know that about dogs; are you sure? I was told the other day that dogs can’t catch colds. But I suppose that’s a different bug, isn’t it?

    wordpress baffles me. If you are blogging it should be because you have something to say, wo why all these prompts and quizzes?

    And this annoying thing telling ME whay MY next target is? Who does this system think it’s dealing with? My next target is to repost the christmas story, when I can feel like it again


  7. laurieanichols December 20, 2011 at 15:26 #

    You have very fine taste in men, I like the way you describe the Hub and 300 Gerard Butler’s would be a grand thing.


  8. colonialist December 20, 2011 at 20:39 #

    You have dignified these stupid questions with quite unwarrantedly intelligent answers!
    Just thinking: how do you manage to LEAVE a comment, if you don’t post it?


    • Tilly Bud December 21, 2011 at 11:40 #

      The question is too complicated for my poor, mucus-filled head. Ask me in a few days.


  9. kateshrewsday December 20, 2011 at 21:37 #

    I have this picture of God scouring the earth for a really good hiding place.

    Hope this week turns warm and fuzzy very soon, Tilly. You’re worth it.


  10. Yulia December 21, 2011 at 02:16 #

    You are grumpy, yet you still make others laugh 🙂 That’s make you so special 😉
    Happy holiday, Tilly!

    What the heck is the “new post UI?” I really dislike acronyms, OK?

    😆 Hmmmm Now I know.


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.
