Fey thoughts on a Sunday morning

(look, he doesn't want one either!)


I will never say never, life is far too short to ignore an exciting opportunity when it comes but I might say that I am unlikely to -

  • win the Nobel peace prize
  • sail without fear
  • have another baby
  • learn to love my hair
  • write a work of great literary fiction
  • wear beige when I'm old
  • invent anything useful
  • put money before love
  • look back with regret
  • give up my nasty habits
  • be complacent
  • feel comfortable around a maths genius
  • own a gun
  • be known as Dame Minx
  • go out quietly

This list may continue - if you can be bothered.......

I dunno, I really like Dame Minx.
I think it suits you.

We've tagged you for the next part of The Shameless Lions Writing Project... perhaps you can win a Nobel prize with that, hmm?

PS - Not a meme. ;o)-

You never know, you might achieve one or two of those.

Debi said...

I'll add to your list if you don't mind:

You're also never going to -
- stop writing
- suffer fools gladly
- stop caring
- grow a big hook nose and warty chin
- get away from me!

Minx said...

Yay, I think I could do Dame, Scarlett, or Mistress, but definitely not Lady, no, no, no.

Yes, yes, Marie, I am going to buy a gun and shoot all the beige grannies!

Debi, if I stopped caring then I wouldn't be bothered about the warty hook, would I? However, I am worried about me eyesight. I have just been wondering why the spider on the kitchen floor hasn't moved for two days - closer examination says it's a bit of cotton.

I dunno, I wouldn't rule out Dame Minx - it certainly has a ring to it.

As for a maths genius. This from a maths klutz: I met a lovely maths genius recently, he's a pal of Stephen Hawking's and a Fellow of the Royal Society - and he was very comfortable to be around. So there you go, there's another that might be overcome.

By the way, you nearly got tagged for a luvverly meme... and then I thought better of it and instead did a bit of promotion for your luvverly book.

Minx said...

Don't you think of it as a bit pantomime-ish? I can't look at Judi Dench these days without thinking of Dame Trot.

And thanks for the plug, Vanilli, I like a nice plug rather than a bloody meme!

Cailleach said...

You'll never wear beige ever! Ever, I say - not even now, o purple wan!

Minx said...

I suspect you may be right, Cailleach.
In a bizarre conversation the other night about funeral preferences (yes, I know) my dear friends decided I would be better to skip this and just have a house land on me head. Thanks.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Fine, I'll be Lady Scarlett and you can be Mistress Dame Minx.

Excellent!

Well I am happy to loan you a gun should you wish one - I thought you were a bit of a veggie?

Minx said...

I don't want to eat them, Mutley.

One shouldn't take the creating of great literature, or the Nobel peace prize, off the table, until one is dead.

Beige? Is that common? Peopel called my nana the purple lady. She wore purple, always purple, except for when she wore red.

How about an unrealistic wish list? I have one, but haven't put it up on me blog, because you know, it's embarrassing. I don't think I would be embarrassed at all if you did one though- you know- one of those- if anything was possible lists....

how about:

never stop being minx-a-liscious? or minx-a-luscious - whichever you prefer ...

dames, ladies ..... you brits ... we call those the red light district babes ... ha.ha.

Verilion said...

Dame Minx! Yeah it's definitely got a ring to it. But shooting Grannies!!! Beige surely can't be that bad! Poor old dears, just calmly going out for their oven bottoms and there comes Minx with her shotgun. Buns flying everywhere...
