Discussion in 'Forum Games' started by Emmy-Lou, Apr 15, 2014.

  1. One day just after spellings in Primary 2 I was picked from the class & met in the Head's office by my mother and two pleasant looking (if slightly dusty) elderly ladies. I was informed I was going with the three for a chat and to do some fun puzzles.

    We packed into an equally dusty mini which was then dangerously driven by Dusty Old Lady no. 1 to Belvoir Fever Hospital in Belfast. I spent a wonderful two hours reading and explaining passages aloud to my captive audience, followed by a short break of lemon puff biscuits & buttermilk - a particular favourite of mine.

    One hour of simple quadratic equations later and my mother and I were in a taxi home, not back to school. "Don't mention this to your father" was the slightly fearful & intense urging of my darling mother.

    I returned to school the following day to find I had been moved to Primary 5 & subsequently stayed two years ahead of my peers until Upper Sixth.

    My father never noticed this. I remain confident that he never knew about any of the six monthly puzzle fun outings which continued until I was twelve.

    Would you rather be overlooked or underestimated?
     
  2. Complacency indicates contentment whereas there are no excuses for ignorance. Who am I to rock the complacent's world? Just an individual who battles ignorance.

    Freedom of speech or speeches of freedom? Which would you read with more gusto?
     
  3. Cooking. Thai is a passion at the minute. Think it's a Norn Ireland culinary achievement that I have successfully convinced menfolk & children that lemongrass is not just grass that smells lemony.

    You have three hours of untouched time - how would you spend it?

    Explore... It never ceases to amaze me what wonders and utter rubbish I can discover and learn when wandering around the web - specially when I start off with a definite "destination" in mind and end up somewhere completely unrelated.

    If you could time travel when would you go to?

    Lots of witty answers come to mind, like going back to Palaeolithic times, then writing my own diet book, or going back to when I was just pre-diabetic and changing my lifestyle before all this started. I wouldn't mind finding out how M.E. takes hold.
    With my sensible head on, I suppose I wouldn't mind returning to my late teens, a period during which I made some bad choices. But they are what made me, and given a second chance with this time machine I'm just as likely to do the same things all over again.

    I'm gifting you all my unused airmiles, enough to go anywhere. Where is your dream destination?

  6. I yearn for breads. And cheeses. In fact it's my favourite meal some good bread and cheese. Oh, and olives. I love making bread. Little was more satisfying to me than making 2 or 3 loaves and leaving them to prove in the Aga drawer ready to bake on the Sunday morning before my tribe arrived. Placing all the dishes out, breads, cheeses, salads and hot food.

    At least I still have all the laughter

    If your tshirt describes you precisely - what would it say?

    "So much to learn, so little time."

    @LupeValez this question is too good to waste on the likes of me. How about starting a "If your t-shirt describes you precisely - what would it say?" thread. Seriously.

    For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
     
  8. Upon the premise that expunging said memory also removes the actions which occurred immediately afterward I would remove the act of logging into freeserve chat at 9am on the August bank holiday 1999. A Typhoid Mary moment in my life.

    You have one choice to make while brushing your teeth. Do you use a) a battered and scrunched up minty toothpaste tube OR b) a beautiful unopened tub of strawberry sparkly tooth powder. Which would you choose & why?
     

  9. Dear nomoredonuts

    Feel free to post this as a topic of its own I'm not sure how to do it.

    Thank you

    Ivy - in memory of my green fingered keen gardener MIL of the same name

    Favourite relative?
     
  16. Mrs Millar primary 3. She was so awesome I twice called her mummy in open class & felt no shame. Also she let me drink my milk beside Andrew McIlvenny who I adored.

    Invasive life saving surgery with definitive risk or live with a potential ticking time bomb with no certainty of when it goes off?

    @Galja - do you have a question?:p
     
  18. Does being a ref count? 5-a-side mums soccer but I'm sidelined at the minute because I keep forgetting names. Hilarious, but not conducive to the game.

    I cheer now. A lot.

    What is your favourite fairy tale?
