No, she generally shreds wallpaper until she gets her own way.

Now I'm just getting confused. Do I have to mess around with the "Anne" bit too? I guess there's not many choices if I do...

I'm pretty sure I've never been to any 6th form leaving balls, so no. Please show photoses (only to aid me in trying to recall this dance, naturally).

Wallpapers better than carpet... and I have no idea how but my cat as developed the novel skill of being able to outstrech one claw and poke me in the side of the head when she wants me to wake up...

Nope the Anne is as stands although I guess you've realised that by now smiley - smiley

Hmm...I'll consider the photos if I get to see the ones which haven't been taken yet of you as James Bond at the new year?

And carpet's better than skin, which Freda can get when she's feeling affectionate and pawing at everything.

For your name in the band, I now seem to have Fifi le Anne, which doesn't explain why you were so reticent in revealing it.

I don't think I'll bear much resemblance to Bond, though there will probably be several lads there who do have tuxes. I've actually just got a set of photos back actually, which includes lots of people looking drunk in strange clothes.

Other cat which is eveil but in a cute and cuddly fluffy kitten disguise aims for my head with outstretched claws...

Umm...does it not remind you of anything?

Aaah you'll look like Bond it'll be fine...

Long-haired cats are worse because they make my eyes puff up and throat go dry merely by moulting in my general direction, now that's evil.

No... Should it? smiley - erm

Would Bond be more likely to wear a Leeds Uni tie, a Wallace and Gromit tie or one with just some strange pattern on it?

Oh this cat is definitely fluffy...

Well hopefully not smiley - smiley

*grins*
You sound like me the night before I went down to Cambridge last week, I was on the phone/ICQ (have you got that sorted yet?) for hours to many people trying to work out which shirt went with my suit...I mean with a plain black suit you wouldn't think it'd be overly complex but I ended up buying an entirely new shirt smiley - smiley oh wait I never answered the question... Bond would probably have to know what colour shirt he was wearing before deciding and also consider what colour the strange pattern was and what colour his eyes were...but other than that I'd say wallace and Gromit smiley - biggrin

Oh dear.

It doesn't. Honestly, all that build up and I don't even understand the dénoument when it occurs. smiley - sadface

Cambridge? Interview was it?

I think I'll go for the W&G one, since when tucked under the jacket it looks like a plain green tie and no-one knows until I unbutton it.

I would like jelly babies. Can I have please? Preferably not virtual

I would also like to sit in a jelly chair. A fleecy blanky may be nice too if you know anyone with such an item.

Wouldn't we all like non-virtual jelly babies? Unfortunately I'm on the wrong side of the Atlantic.

I feel I ought to report a very serious matter to the enforcement officers in the Ministry of Jelly.

A certain Multi-national (Household Name) corporation posted an injunction this week which forced my daughter's (registered charity) Theatre School to remove immediately from the 'tuck shop' shelves ALL THEIR JELLY BEANS (and also their entire supply of chocolate frogs).

The company concerned claim to have established a 'copyright' on said items due to the forthcoming release of a film based on the 'Harry Potter' story .... if anyone thinks this is a spoof, I only wish it were!

More details can be found in a certain local newspaper, but 'm not sure if Moderators will allow me to name it ......... Comments???

I think you'd be allowed to name the paper, but posting its URL if it has an online edition would be out. I can't believe Jelly Beans have been copyrighted; surely loads of companies make them. Of course if you were selling that company's products on without permission, that'd be technically illegal (I think), but it seems *extremely* petty to stop a school from doing so to its own kids.

Aren't you getting my emails, Tink? I gave my address in one of those.

Oh, and if chocolate frogs are disallowed then a quick internet search reveals several companies who should be receiving nice lawyer's letters to hang up in the toilet.

Thank you, Bagpuss: as long as the Moderators will allow this posting, the BULLY BOYS are named on the Front Page of the Liverpool Echo, published Thursday October 25.

The article does NOT, however, refer to the pettiness regarding Jelly Beans and Chocolate Frogs: this was something which parents and pupils discovered for themselves when arriving for the first rehearsal session AFTER the above date!

Sorry, I tried looking for the Echo, but I couldn't find any back issues. I could try guessing who it was, but then it wouldn't really surprise me of any multinational company. smiley - sadface

If I were to say that the company has a vested interest in the revenue from anything associated with a childrens' film due for release on Nov.16 with a central character named Harry Potter........
If I name them directly, I may get the shirt sued off my back: anyone who's going to destroy 6 months' hard work by an amateur theatre school on the spurious grounds they've chosen is going to go for the jugular if a private indiv. starts making waves!
