And now … *Drum Roll* … Cripes, it’s time for some Friday Fun …
1. …owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?
It would have to be a quintessentially English restaurant with such favourites as Bangers & Mash, Fish & Chips, Soggy Fry-Ups and Victoria Sponge Cakes on the menu. And lots of tea and coffee. And there would be books to read. And the venue would be a London Bus. It would be a hit with the tourists, no?
2. …owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?
Secondhand & out of print books. Obscure posters. Old postcards. And some obligatory cheese thrown in.
3. …wrote a book, what genre would it be?
I would have to write a fantastical book aimed at children. It would be set in England. And there would be faeries in it. And possibly a purple elephant of noble description. Called Arthur. And an orang-utan that said “ook” all the time. I would ask permission from Mr Pratchett first of course.
4. …ran a school, what would you teach?
Proper spelling. And life skills.
[Actually, speaking of spelling I was rather bemused at a letter that had been written to Teletext at the beginning of the week. The writer claimed that the poor grammer and spelling that is so common in the youth of today is all the fault of English teachers. And presumably primary school teachers. I laughed. The only reason it could be the thought of English teachers is because of the government and the naffiness of the National Curriculum. And everyone blames teachers anyways. Lack of standards in English are most probably down to the media. And texting. Damn texting. If there’s one thing I really don’t like it’s people who use 2 instead of to/too/two and u instead of you, etc. It’s just so very lazy.]
5. …recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?
It would be a quirky mixture. But it wouldn’t include dance music.
I love my Norton Antivirus. It’s picked up two dodgy mails in the last two days. I would like to know why it bothers to tell me that they’re there though … I would much prefer it if Mr Antivirus simply assumed that I would delete them immediately anyways and so do it for me. It would be a great help. I suppose that it would be too easy.
The other night I dreamt that I was pregnant. It worried me. It wouldn’t be a major problem if I was but it wouldn’t be planned and I’d much rather that two of us made the decision to bring a baby into the world. But I’m not. Yay. If periods have no other use, at least they can confirm pregnancy status.
Yes, I was suffering from an insane amount of boredom the other day …
And a jovial weekend to you all … may it be mischievous and full of fun …
