Real Live Lesbian said... make PANCAKES!? I love women that make pancakes! :)

and I'm so with you on the pet peeve!

buffalodick said...

Poppet? Well, if my wife is Gooby, I guess that's not too odd!

Krimo said...

I like you quote. Very true!

gigihawaii said...

I love your butterflies. How do you make them fly like that? Ancient secret?

Ron said...

This is funny, because there's quite a few of your answers in which I would have shared the same thing.

Julie Walters!!!

Do you not LOVE that woman??? If you can believe this, I just saw Billy Elliot and I must have re-watched her scenes five times. I loved how she smoked cigarettes while teaching a dance class!!!

Brilliant actress!

And I would be lost without my tweezers!!!

(and very bushy!)


Akelamalu said...

I wondered what our connection was Thom - wine & beer! :)

I look forward to reading your Dr. John :)

Julie Walters is fantastic isn't she Daisy?

LOL I know you don't like snow Bee ;)

Yep I make great pancakes RLL - or so MWM tells me. ;)

You call your wife Gooby Buff? And she still loves you? LOL

Thanks Krimo x

It's easy Gigihawaii - I'll pop across to tell you. :)

I sometimes think we're twins separated at birth Ron! LOL Billy Elliott is a fantastic film as is Julie Walters!

gigihawaii said...

Thanks, Akalemalu! Or as they say in Hawaii - MAHALO!

Gledwood said...

I would have said summut before but fell foul of the popups blocker, so couldn't get inside your comments...

Butter beans bleurgh?? Are there any you like? What about blackbeans? Black eyed peas? Kidney are a bit boring for me, also I had an "ideosyncratic reaction" to some last week (in other words I undercooked 'em)...

Gledwood said...

I always wished I was Scorpio instead of flaky bi-directional Pisces...

PS can you tell me how you managed that crossed through writing up top? I've been wondering for ages how it's done but never knew who to ask...

Anonymous said...

poppet, sweet!
aloha, cloudia

buffalodick said...

I didn't say she loved me! We've been married 35 yrs.... I think she is still looking to "trade up"!-Poppet!

Travis said...

This is a fun meme!

MarmiteToasty said...

Least Buff dont call his wifey gobby LOL

This is a fun way to get to know someone better :)


citizen of the world said...

Poppet! That's cute. I hate cleaning windows, too, so I rarely do it.

Julia Smith said...

'Useful tool: Tweezers' - LOL! That's definitely a question & answer that says a lot about a person. I laughed at Travis's, too (box cutter.) Mine is scissors.

Akelamalu said...

You're welcome Gigihawaii:)

I like all other sorts of bean except Butter Beans Gleds. I think it stems from school dinners when all the skins would be floating on the top! :( I'll pop across to yours and give you the answer to your question. x

Cheers Cloudia x

She must love you if she's put up with you for 35 years Buff! LOL

I think so too Trav :)

Gooby's not a million miles away from Gobby though is it Marmie? (wink)

I don't clean the windows at all since MWM retired Citizen - he does them! :)

I think we all have some little 'tool' that we can't do without don't we Julia :)

Daryl said...

Maggie May said...

I hate snow too and I like Julie Walters!

King sized waterbed! Hope it never bursts!

CG said...

A water!
I love butter beans - am I the only one? :)

G-Man said...

Who the Deuce is Julie? Walters

Akelamalu said...

Great to see you back Daryl :)

We've had a couple of leaks on previous waterbeds Maggie but they're easy to repair and don't squirt all over like people think. :)

Yep a waterbed and yep you're the only one that likes butter beans CG LOL

You don't know Julie Walters G-man????? She's a British actress who was in Educating Rita, Personal Services, Car Trouble, Billy Elliott etcetera, etcertera..
