I once asked you for a Malteser.

I would advise you never to return the ask.


What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?

That people who don’t often laugh, would come here and laugh at me.

I’ve already started with my family.  They laugh at me all the time.


Go back in time to an event you think could have played out differently for you. Let alternate history have its moment: tell us what could, would or should have happened?

DID:  I asked a friend for a Malteser.  She laughed, then quaked (for obvious reasons).  Then she gave me one.

SHOULD:  I asked a friend for a Malteser.  She gave me the whole packet and a voucher for more.


Invent a holiday! Explain how and why everyone should celebrate.

Belly Laugh Day.

Everyone is required by law to watch funny DVDs and tell jokes and amusing stories.

Anyone noncompliant will be tickled by banana skins wearing feather dusters. Whether it is the banana skins or the noncompliants who wear the feather dusters is up to you.


Write a letter to your 14-year-old self. Tomorrow, write a letter to yourself in 20 years.

We’ve done something similar before but, okay, here goes.  I’m nothing if not compliant:

Dear Tilly,


Love Tilly.

PS Eat less.


Dear Tilly,


Love Tilly.

PS I told you you should eat less.

  • A true friend stabs you in the front.
  • All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That is his.
  • Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same thing.
  • Men always want to be a woman’s first love – women like to be a man’s last romance.
  • America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up.
  • There is nothing so difficult to marry as a large nose.
  • There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
  • I am not young enough to know everything.
  • Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much.
