Chocolate? Crap. Not before I read this.

Now I fear I'll have to do that mime thingy and be done with it before I can finish my Christmas.

BTW: I adore RadioHead. Like Minds?

I need to drop the "F" bomb again. I have to do another Meme.


Anonymous said...

I laughed and laughed reading your meme - yet it reveals in few words much about you (as if I didn't already know these great things !!)

I'm a bit gun shy on memes at the moment - one is figuring prominently in a divorce case against me. I believe it was the 8 WEIRD Things About Me .... and trolls seem to be lurking about my blog recently.

One thang I HAVE learned in the last year is how much I love the word: fuckwit ... and all my permutations of it: fuckwittery, fuckwittiness, fuckwitticism .....

I seem to have had to deal with quite a bit of fuckwittery this year !



Debi said...

Great list - except I see chocolate isn't listed ... nor is gin ...

Shorely shome mishtake ...?

Unknown said...

Like minded with a few others, Roberta and it was the c-bomb that did me in!!!!

You forgot 'fuckery', Red, one of me faves alongside 'fucknobbin'. I loathe meme's - does it show?

No mishtake, Mish Moneypenny. Chocolate is off the menu until I get these hips under control.

Debi said...

Chocolate off the menu?
Say it ain't so ...

I have never done a meme - perhaps I could do a list of things I have never done?

Taffiny said...

Really enjoyed your list, it is all grey and cold out, but your words felt merry.

Yes I must go skinny dipping again too. Might have to go alone though as my ___s are going south as well.

Vesper said...

Lovely 64, Minx! :-)

Unknown said...

You should do memes more often, really you should, I always end up having a really good chuckle - and it seems I'm not alone in that! That funny bone of yours was designed for memish things! ;-) Go on, ya know ya wanna.

Unknown said...

Okay, I lied, Debi.

A neverhasbeenmeme, Muts? I like it.

Thank you Taff, Vesp and Vanilli. I am really, really not fond of meme's. It's the me-me-me-me business that I don't like - plus being tagged, but I am off chocolate again so I tag you three!!

Yodood said...

Methinks your crying, "no mememememe" is akin to brer rabbits, "don't throw me in the briar patch."
'Tis your love of and fun with your saucy self that makes you so lovable to we fans! Besides, no one else has picked up this juicy meme — which you have morphed into 64 symbols, how nice.

S. Kearney said...

The last lot were the best. But punch someone? Steady on, Minx! :-)

Unknown said...

No, no, no, no, no - oh all right then! I do a meme when I fancy, G&G. I have a thing about laws and rules and tags and dog poo and rudeness and bin men and, oh lots of things really!
Fans? (falls off chair laughing)

Not violent as a rule, Shameless, but I have a real need sometimes to punch the living daylights out of someone - so watch it. (smiles wickedly)

nietzschean-ghost said...

Death to the Pixies! They are truly legendary.

soubriquet said...

I have no shame nor fobia.... but I do have a giant white chocolate toblerone bar... and it's all mine.
(tearing of wrapper... crinkle of foil.... SNAP!... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, mmmmmmmm!

Haa- ha ha-ha haaaaaa!

Oh i love this word verification.... not!

Unknown said...

Where is your mind, Mr Ghost?
Hope your blog friends come back but in the meantime you can sort through this lot. There might even be a few sane ones amongst them - then again...

Soub, gimme the choc or I will punch you!

Unknown said...

Am soffing Black magic and champers as I type... bit messy though... ;)

Keep on buck lepping!

Unknown said...

And so you should, Babs - great news and well done again.
