In England? I don't think so!

He'd freeze to death for sure. Why do you think the Famous Five were always wearing Tank Tops, even though the weather looked nice enough?

This should swing you one way or the other:
I pictured those hotpants as bright yellow.

I'm beginning to see that.
Fortunately my Kilt Of Kindness protects me from your skirt's evil machinations.

I liked the Famous Five. I think as a child I must have read every Enid Blyton book ever written.

Indeed, that was truly worthy of a malicious clothing owner.

Hmm. Haven't flirted for a while so I thought I had better write you a flirt poem (like a love poem but in a more platonic way and less gushy)

British Beef and Swede

What do you say?
There isn't any hurt
In just a little flirt
There is no need for anyone to get upset or harried
Since we are quite determined, we're both happily married.

What do you think my little sounds-sort-of-like-a-vegetable-but-isn't-one?

Hey, it's my childhood memories you're talking about here!


Okay, so I don't have many of the books (my mother actually has all the "Adventure" series books from her childhood. I'll have to get them down from the attic one day.)

I actually have different audio tapes by Enid Blyton. I always had some kind of Audio tape running (that's one of the reason why I prefer to have Audio books on audio tapes, rather than CDs. It brings back memories to hear the familiar *clack* of when the tape arrives at the end. Also, it gives me an excuse to use our old tape deck in the living room, which is a pretty good one. How good? Well, you don't have to turn around the audio tape when one side is played. The tape deck is built so that you can leave the tape in one position, and it automatically plays switches to play the other side when it reaches the end of the first side.) in the background, when I was a child (In fact, I just decided I should listen to some of them again. I put in "Tina und Tini finden den geheimnisvollen Schatz" into my tape player.). I have some "The Twins" tapes, some "Famous Five" tapes, and one "Tina und Tini" (I still haven't found out what they are called in English. The title would be "Tina und Tini find the mysterious Treasure" if translated literally. They are visiting their Grandparents [whose last name is "Grailing"] , and find out about the lost family treasure.). I also have some "Alf" tapes, but that's a different story.

I've decided to change my signature (after using the same one for....oooh....absolutely ages now)

From now on I'm going to put little poems in there as and when I feel the urge. Number 1 is about a UK TV program so I don't know how well it will travel world-wide.

If you have any subject suggestions for future stiff then PM me.

And before anyone points it out, I know sonnets are a particular poetic form. It's alliterative OK.

I loved your poem, so I decided to dig into my own source of poetry. I´m not sure if that rubber/glue means anything other than those words.

Hang on, so let's get this straight. First you tell me that americans don't have electric kettles, and now you say that you've never heard of Enid Blyton? Next you'll be telling me that you've never heard of Roald Dahl either .

If they do, Tibsie, I am afraid we'll have to make a blood sacrifice in order to save their souls. And I know they won't like the fact that the blood sacrificed must be that of the person being saved*...

*We tried other types of blood, but it never worked. This method is tried and approved. At least we never got any complaints from the people whose souls we saved.

Indeed. I asked them myself.

On a side note, I was actually expecting someone to ask something along the lines of: "Why were the Famous Five wearing tank tops if it's so cold in England?". Maybe I should have mentioned that all of them (except for the dog), including the guys, wore a tank top at least once (okay, maybe Anne didn't.).

Oh, and to address earlier points, I am wearing plenty of stuff under the aforementioned overcoat. Which is one of the reasons why people always say things like "Why, you must be really hot!" to me.

In other news, my copy of Battlestar Galactica Season One arrived today .

I've heard of Enid Blyton (although I've not read her) and I've read Roald Dahl. Dahl is much more well known here in America.

Gah! Read some Famous Five stories this instant! They're all pretty much the same, but how else will you get all the references that I may choose to make to ginger pop and going down to the farm for milk and eggs?
