Tilly’s Blog Jubilee: Day Three

30 Jun


Three Six Word Saturdays To Celebrate:

Today’s My Actual Blogaversary – Three Years!

Hope You’re Enjoying The Old Posts.


I had great fun last year, tormenting the WordPress prompters who helped us to write a postaday2011.  Rather than show whole posts, I have selected some of my favourite responses.


What non-exercise activity do you wish would keep you fit?

You all think I’m going to say ‘Eating Maltesers,’ don’t you? Guess again. And keep guessing until I hear something I like, then I’ll use that one.


Describe the perfect crime.

Someone breaks into my house and cleans it.  If they steal the Hub’s crap, that’s a bonus.


What’s the biggest lesson you learned so far this year?

WordPress prompters can’t grammar.



How do you decide who to be friends with?

What’s to decide? In TillyBudland, it’s friend until proven unfriend; I don’t see why I have to choose.  I have disliked very few people in my life, but even then I have been friendly to them. It’s just good manners.

Bonus: What defines the difference between a good friendship vs a close one?

The amount of gifts they bring me.


If you started a music band, what would the name be?

WordPress & the Prompters.


If you got a tattoo, what would it be?

News to me.


Make a prediction about life in 2021.

I will be posting 105 times a day.  You have been warned.


Describe your first job interview.

Boss: Your Mum says you’ll work hard; is she right?

Me: Yes.

Boss: Here’s your desk.

Who says nepotism’s a bad thing?



What film have you seen more times than any other?

The Terminator. Sigh. The greatest romance ever.

What? We’ve had this argument before: he came across time for her. I rest my case. 


Write a sequel to your favorite movie. 

Terminator 5: John Connor finally nails those buggers.


What is your favorite way to procrastinate?

Let me think about that and get back to you.


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.

[Not particularly funny; I threw it in as a hint]


How do you know when it’s time to go?

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


Why does corruption exist?

Because it works.

Can it be stopped?

Bung me a fiver and I’ll see what I can do.

What can bloggers do to help?

Lend you a fiver?


Write about the one that got away.

I lost a Malteser in March 1997. I know this because I found it under my bed in 2006, alongside a copy of a letter typed in the same month. You’ve gotta love carbon dating.



And finally, my all-time favourite response to one of the prompts:

WordPress Asked: Does Grammar Matter?

Does grammar matter?

    I don’t know how you keep it up, Tilly, but please never stop making me laugh. 😉


  3. vivinfrance June 30, 2012 at 11:22 #

    I think this could be your best 6-w-S ever.


  4. Aliaa Jordan El-Nashar June 30, 2012 at 11:44 #

    Blogaversary! That must be exciting 😀


  5. Tom (Aquatom1968) June 30, 2012 at 11:49 #

    Funny! You’ve activated my tear and jaw ache response with this one, Tilly! I now have to calm down before carrying on. Thanks for the belly laugh! 😀


  6. Jen's in CM June 30, 2012 at 11:50 #

    I’m still grinning! Fabulous!


  7. Jenn @ I Am Not Superwoman June 30, 2012 at 13:13 #

    LOL. You crack me up. Congrats on your blogiversary!

    Why exercise with maltesers? Opening the packet takes no energy at all. Half fat Philadelphia uses far more during the spreading – and you can eat twice as much (or so says the advert) 🙂

    Happy Blogiversary!


  10. The Wanderlust Gene June 30, 2012 at 14:00 #

    Six stars today (just cause you caught me up on last year!).


  11. Al June 30, 2012 at 14:38 #

    The Smithsonian called. They want that 15-year old Malteser.


  12. Wayne June 30, 2012 at 14:59 #

    Happy Bloggy-versary! Well done!


  13. Jim June 30, 2012 at 15:08 #

    Good ones, T.Bud ~~ It looks like you really had fun. It might have been too bad that I’m a Saturdays only friend. I’ve missed a lot of your good posts. I sure do relate to Hub’s ‘stuff’ [please don’t call it crap :)]

    Will you do it again? I would if I didn’t have soooo much other ‘stuff’ to do!

    There are two reasons that I miss the prompts, one is that it made blogging easier because I answer easily, coming up with a post is much harder and two, you are the Queen of taking a prompt and doing things to it to turn it into something funny and creative.

    you are one very funny lady..when I read about blogging in 2021 I immediately thought ‘ that don’t affect me I’ll be dead’ but maybe I shall still be here , hopefully still blogging at 81 you never can tell !! I loved every bit of the rest…does that deserve a Malteser but not the one you found under the bed !


  16. Pseu June 30, 2012 at 15:47 #

    How long do we have to plan the 50th birthday party?


  17. Brenda Youngerman June 30, 2012 at 16:40 #

    HAPPY, happy, happy, happy , happy, happy
    (see that was six words too!)
    but seriously…. I am so glad we ran across each other and those quips are great!!!!


  18. McGuffyAnn June 30, 2012 at 16:44 #

    Tilly, I am so happy to have you in this thing we call the Blogosphere. You are awesome.
    Seriously, Happiness to you, in everything.


  19. Tinman June 30, 2012 at 17:13 #

    Happy Blogday, Tilly. May you celebrate with many Maltesers.


  20. musings June 30, 2012 at 17:43 #

    Congratulations on YEAR #3!!! Here’s to 30 more!

    I love all your answers here, Tilly Bud. You have the best sense of humor.


  21. restlessjo June 30, 2012 at 18:10 #

    Always value for money, Tilly! Happy anniversaire.


  22. terry1954 June 30, 2012 at 18:57 #

    congratulations and good post!


  23. judithatwood June 30, 2012 at 22:34 #

    I am so happy to see that you understand the importance of, and the nature of, Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor! Most people can’t think of Terminator as a romance, but I sure do!


  24. robincoyle June 30, 2012 at 23:37 #

    How’s the arm? Oh, and congrats.


  25. Jodie July 1, 2012 at 02:51 #

    LOL, thanks for the recap. 🙂


  26. katharinetrauger July 1, 2012 at 05:13 #

    Happy day, to you.
    Oh, and at least they spelled “grammar” right. That is not a given where I live.

    I reckon laughing’s the best non-exercise activity to keep fit


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.
