The day I was travelling for work with a colleague and we got stuck on the motorway  for 4 hours because of a closed junction.  There was no hard shoulder because of a contraflow and I got so desperate I had to climb into the back of the car and try to pee in a plastic bag that I found ... which then split, meaning I had peed all over the back of my colleague's company car.

He nearly peed himself through laughing, and the news was all around the office before I'd brewed my coffee the following morning!!!

I married him :)

I want a tree planted over my ashes so I can go back into nature, but my husband reckons if I kick the bucket first, he's going to have me stuffed and mounted and turned into a novelty coffee table.

Sometimes I don't know why I married him :)[Error: unknown template qotd]

Nope, not at all; don't like facial hair, full stop.

There's nothing to compare with a beautifully smooth, clean-shaven man with the heady scent of aftershave.

I can tolerate a bit of stubble, but even that's uncomfortable when you want to get up-close and personal with someone and end up cheese-grating your face on it!

[Error: unknown template qotd]Am I being unreasonable?  My biggest bugbear of all time is people who take umbrellas to sporting events!

You pay good money for your ticket - what ever it may be - football, rugby, cricket, showjumping, whatever ... down comes the first sprinkle of rain, and ... bang!   You're stuck with someone's sodding Golf Umbrella in your face.

Man up!!! 

It's only bloody water falling out of the sky, not nitric acid.  Buy a waterproof jacket for heavens sake or just dig in to enjoy a nice drop of British weather and get wet!

Okay, rant over ...

[Error: unknown template qotd]I was in my office in London working for an American company and my husband who was on a day off phoned me and told me to get Sky News on the Internet right away, terrible things were happening in America.

I and my colleagues in human resources crowded around my computer watching the horrors unfold and listening to gasps around the office from other cubicles.  Several people were in tears.

I had taken a long weekend trip to New York three months before 9/11 and went up the WTC.  I felt numb and couldn't stop thinking of the people we'd seen there especially the lovely lady on the cash register in the cafeteria there who had a giggle with me when I couldn't find the milk.

I have no idea if that sweet lady lived or died.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I was eighteen and was asked out by a young guy who worked at the local garage. For some reason beyond my comprehension he decided to take us stock car racing.
It was pouring with rain, he bought me a burger that dripped grease and ruined my favourite blouse, I was bored stupid with no idea of what was going on, I had some moron right behind me with an air hooter and then to cap it all, his ex-girlfriend turned up.
Needless to say, I never saw him again.  And I still hate stock car racing!

'Long ago, the great Frith made the world...'



My favourite book is Watershiop down and I still sob like an infant at the end!

I have a best friend called Jane (same as me). She is only three months older than me so our mothers, who knew each other as neighbours, were pregnant at the same time.  Therefore, we were both aware of each other from the time of my birth.

We started school on the same day, and like most tots, were both fretful, so our Mums told us to hold hands as we walked in and that because we had the same name we would be very special friends who would take care of each other.

43 years later, here we both are, still best buddies.  We have never had a falling out and would move heaven and earth to help each other.  We were each others' bridesmaids, we have holidayed together, laughed and cried together and I am proud to say that Jane is the sister I never had.

I wouldn't keep any of them in captivity in the first place, unless there was a benefit in doing so.
People are the ones I would lock up!
(only the horrible ones, of course)

A lovely remote valley in Somerset, England called Batcombe Vale where my husband and I have camped every year since 2002.  It's a beautiful place to opt out of the human race and be peaceful and content for a few days.

I have a whole lot of happy memories there :)

I can see another book in about ten years time: 'Harry Potter and the Mid Life Crisis' ...

It's not my favourite Beatles song, but it is the one most significant to me; 'Lady Madonna' was number 1 on the day I was born!

The only movie I have ever walked out of was Legally Blonde.  I couldn't bear the simpering moron main character - I wanted to slap her.
Needless to say, I never went to see the sequels!

London to Copenhagen, three days driving each way.
Passed the time by stopping off and sampling opportunities to eat and explore in five different European countries; France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark.

It was a great fun experience; it's not often you are required to say thank you in four different languages in one day!

I name my cars according to some or all of the letters in their registration plate to help me remember it.  So far I've had Zippy, Hobbit and Beep!

Given my pathetically bad  memory, I have been known to call myself 'Captain Amnesia'

I was born on April Fool's Day and have suffered the consequences ever since :)
Does that qualify?
