Blog report for the Inner Minx


English - grade B
Consistency is a worry, although occasionally showing signs of genius, these are in fact few and far between. Posts written late at night are barely legible and despite numerous detentions she continues to drop irrelevant and irreverent comments on serious blogs. See me.

Maths - grade F
Although able to tot up the price of two pairs of shoes and three new sweaters in under .00005 of a second, the Minx shows a complete lack of understanding of the concept of time.
The gaps between posts are unacceptable and should not be filled with gin.

Geography - grade C
A big improvement here which coincided with the addition of a little map in her site meter. Gave up on history - so still confused why most of America has English names.

IT - grade U
Abysmal - shown no improvement in computer skills at all. If she spent more time studying her blog than yammering on googletalk then she might know her bits from her bites.

Physical Education - N/A ('Not Allowed' - too dangerous)

Attendance - poor

Overall - So laid back that she is nearly horizontal - could do better, but probably won't.

***

Leslie has awarded me this....


so here are my list of 10 victims who are less lazy than me -

Sergeant Alper- who blogs of writing, rants and hair.
Vanilli - who looks at life from all sides now
Wifey oop north - a gentle tale of not fitting in
Pund - who is worse than me but I am trying to encourage him back!
Pants - queen of the House of Pants
Shameless - King Blog
Reading the Signs - smarty writer type
Vapours - who writes from the deepest part of the brain
Frank - who is not retiring! Phew.
The Carver - who has a very, very good book coming out!!!!

Reading the Signs said...

Ta, Ms Minx, pleased as punch, for smarty writer type is so just exactly what I am that I am thinking I should be printing it on my T shirts and have a badge - just so everyone knows. In case it isn't obvious, though I now have fabulous titanium varifocal specs to support this.

But "less lazy" is a bit of a bummer as it happens, because "bone idle" was thought to be my second name at most of my (13 in all) schools. But this will act as a spur, yes it will. Something to live up to. I go swift as an arrow now to compose poetry and posts. Well, at any rate to stare out of windows.

That's So Pants said...

Hi Minxie

All honours gratefully received at Winnebago of Pants (still on the move). Thanks.

I'm going to keep you in detention until you check the link from my name to my blog. You must now write 100 times, I will give up gin. I will give up gin...

Minx said...

Steady, Signs, 'bone idle' is an art form and should not be messed with. I like the fact that writers can get away with calling it 'displacement activity', and staring out of windows is pure research!

Figured I would catch yer Pants somewhere in the world! Happy travels.

Apologies, Leslie, linkage is fixed.
I tried writing my lines during a meeting with the Gin Co-Operative (me miserable bitches) yesterday afternoon. They encouraged me for about five minutes and then opened another bottle!

Thanks, Missy Minx - funny, I'm just in the throes of putting together another of those Night at the Oscars posts - I seemed to have recently been overwhelmed by a deluge... cor bugger la.

Check in in the next day or so to see the goodies that have your name in them. (Not sure when the post is going up...)

Oh yes, and do see if you can rouse that lazy Pundy person - he's been far too quiet of late.

Jon M said...

Laid back is always the best position to be in, I reckon!

Debi said...

Holding my hand up - and not cos I want to be excused ... You speak the truth re my failings I fear.

But why 'sergeant'???

Debi said...

Damn - just seen you've said I'm LESS lazy than you. Didn't read properly - which speaks volumes ... Nuff said.

Minx said...

Vanilli - Pund is off on a top secret mission but I can assure you he is still alive (if not kicking).

The word 'horizontal' is so much nicer than 'vertical', Jon!

You was once Sergeant Alpero, it kind of stuck in my head! Being too busy to read my post PROPERLY reiterates my point.

Debi said...

Your point? You had a point?

Ah, you mean your shoes, don't you ...

Minx said...

Boots! Pointy! Up! Ass!

cusp said...

Oh IM, I'm so glad I've found my way to a guru of lethargy. I came here by following the Signs.
I do so wish I'd found you a long time ago and then I migt have found my inner sloath earlier. As it is I have had sloathdom imposed upon me and now, for my sins, cannot even consume gin so I can enjoy it.

If I could manage it I would make may way Westward (for, after Suffolk, tis my favourite place)and kneel at your shrine but alas I am no longer able. I'd ask you to come over this way for some lessons but I don't suppose you could be arsed.

I'll keeping popping back to see if you're awake
x

Minx said...

No, can't be arsed, Cusp, my otiosity is well developed and please don't bother popping back to see if I am awake, you may give me guilty dreams!

Hello and welcome anyway - one assumes that you are on the cusp of sleep, so well done for making it this far.

pundy said...

Minx - FFS don't send me on no more secret missions without telling me what they are first!!! I'm feezing my bollocks off out here waiting for instructions.

And I will start posting again regularly honest. I'm almost there now. Just as soon as I think of something to say...

Cailleach said...

I was about to award you it too,but you've already got it. Why does your Blog report feel like it could apply to me as well...

john.g. said...

Well done Minx, but I bet you move more than me.........so there!!

Shameless said...

Why, thank you Mam! lol
But, KING BLOG? :-)

Debi said...

You should worry, Shamey. I'm a sergeant!

leslie said...

Can I get an honorary membership to the Gin co-operative? I once posted a story about buying gin and razor blades at the same time. Would that count for anything?
Thanks for the links fix Minx.

Minx said...

Stop moaning, Pund and keep lookout! And as for the blog, I will believe it when I read it.

You is a lazy ass too, Cailleach?

How much, John G?

King-blog-a-lot - Shamey, or you can be Princess of the Posts if you like, or Lord Lion King. Take yer pick.

And a very lovely sergeant you make, Debi - love and hugs and light and stuff....

You are welcome to join, Leslie. Our next soiree is 30th Feb, 4pm, my house. Bring some gossip and don't be late.

wife in the north said...

thank you minx that is very kind. I do not think I have ever been called gentle before in my life - I shall treasure the moment

Tai said...

As Professor Einstein once said, time exists only to measure the distance between shoe purchases. So much for that F in mathematics.

Deana said...

Congrats on your award...I am visiting via Vanilla's and this place is fantastic. I need to mark you!

Debi said...

There is no f in mafematics ...

gregra&gar said...

To be called less lazy than you is being given more credit than a truly lazy person could muster. Ah, hah, the being English excuse again. My appreciation of your appreciation has appreciated steadily, oh foxy Minx.

Minx said...

Treasure away, Wifey, and when is that damn book coming out?

Welcome, Tai and Deana. I won't be rude on our first date but why do you want to mark me, Deana? Are we talking blog branding? I have a tattoo already - does that exonerate me from your marks?

Don't be such a pedant, Debi, I like my F.

I would argue with you, G&G, if I could be bothered!

Gifts await you in Vanilla's parlour...
