LOL LaughLaughLaugh

I call ours "where is that pronger* that is supposed to be stored away in this cupboard?"

*1 Fiona refers to any long item as a "pronger". That also goes for tall, slim people, as in "pronger called me today."

*2 Fiona believes in freedom of location for inanimate objects (i.e. she suffers from RDS (replacement dysfunction syndrome) - never puts things back where they belong))Frown

I will be murdered for this revelation! ConfusedCrySurprised

Patisserie products sounds like a fab Sunday morning feast, SOL.

Smack accepted Wink

But, here we go again - probably the generation gap thingy - what the heck does PB stand for? Peter Bennett (brother of Gordon Bennett)?

And what the heck has happened to this, my Porridge thread?

It's the Runaway Thread, methinks. Next thig it will be discussing enriched uranium. Yell

Just to continue this thread away from porridge, I am so glad that I now know I have a syndrome, surely that now excuses me from continually leaving keys in pockets and having absolutely no recollection of where things get put and having to put up with the most stupid question on earth "Where did you last have it?" If I knew that it wouldn't be lost would it!

Okay - 'Resurrection Shuffle' (Ashton, Gardner & Dyke - just in case you wondered!)

How about this one, Danny, this will warm the cockles on a cold January morning:

Sorry, BS, I somehow missed your whisky additive. Love them both, but unsure about the combo.

Especially first thing in the morning before I start talking with my colleagues in Bangalore. They have enough difficulty with my accent as it is. Embarassed

Mmmm - never considered flapjacks, S.O.L. I haven't had them in years. That might work well.

S.O.L. I'm not sure that flapjack is a fruit - but hey, who cares, I love flapjacks, too.

Mmmm - perhaps I'll go and make some ........

Oh, go on Danny, a whisky-laden Irish accent reminds me of when we were in Cork, and I do love draught Guinness (in fact it is the only alcohol I can drink), and I particularly wanted to taste the real McCoy! I loved it.

Then this very friendly feller comes to sit with us - drunk as a skunk - but incredibly friendly, and asking us to tell Mrs McGinty that he won't be going in to work tomorrow. What? Who is Mrs McGinty? Great hilarity anyway!

We were in Ireland for a 4-day break. Didn't know him, and didn't know Mrs McGinty!
