Yep. Here are THE answers to the Quickwits quiz from the previous post….
As before, click to make enormous.
Well, that’s a bit dull isn’t it?! I think everyone who guessed, guessed correctly. And some even guessed better than correctly. So now I am here twiddling my thumbs with nothing much more to say about 1938.
To make it up to you I will give you some more answers, only this time you have to make up the questions! Yay! It’s party central here! I PROMISE that there are actual questions to these answers, and they are not just random words, names, and numbers that I’ve made up off the top of my head. PROMISE, PROMISE, PROMISE. I have turned over a new leaf. Well, I have this week.
Here are some more answers:-
2) A seal
3) Hacking computers
4) Sophia Loren
There, that should do. Two of the questions are tricky, BUT, someone will know them. Oh, final answer:-
I’m sure EVERYONE will know the question to that one – he asked it so often.
Where have I been? Why have I not posted since the last time I posted? I have been….. incapacitated. I had my vaccine shot last Saturday, and have been very sleepy ever since. To be fair, I often sleep through March and April, so maybe not a vaccine side effect at all. I did have chills, and a very mild headache for a couple of days. But that was it.
Meanwhile, when conscious, I have been preparing for Mr Devine’s Birthday, which is tomorrow. I had big ideas for a celebration. Firstly, there was a novel to be written; a film starring Aidan Turner in a spaceship to be made; a tribble to be wrapped and mailed; several cormorants to be trained as butlers; a ripped gardener to be employed; and a tinfoil creation to be created. Sadly, due to all the sleep and a sore arm, I had to settle for a small idea instead….
Something new for the sideboard±
Happy Birthday, Mr Devine!! I’m sure you can shrink this so that it doesn’t overwhelm your sideboard. To be fair there was supposed to be some gold, but my gold dust looked like a heap of yellowing dandruff in my photographs, so I abandoned that particular idea.
A tune for the birthday boy….
It has taken me many days to decide the ultimate winner of the ‘Did I Win Yet?’ competition, and some nights I have woken in a cold sweat wondering how I could resolve the conundrum, but I have finally made a decision. He may not be happy about it; he may fall to his knees in exasperation; he may flounce around for a bit and then go for a long walk to examine his groynes….but yes, the winner of the competition is Mr Devine! – Please be aware that you should never enter anything without accepting the very real possibility of coming first. And although Mr Devine is the ultimate winner, I still propose that we have some sort of Mr Lax festival in the future.
So that’s that then. I will be posting again at the weekend. I have news of the jolly variety! And an explanation as to why I might be posting less in February. Or I might be posting more – I haven’t quite figured that one out yet – though I might have it figured by July.
Meanwhile, I have been doing a lot of this sort of thing…
….which is possibly why I haven’t been doing so much blog commenting.
And here is a tune…
Ihave been sent an island!!! I know!!! How lucky am I?? I am so overwhelmed by my benefactor’s generosity that I am using it as my new blog header, for the time being. All my favourite colours. And here are some more pics:-
And I agree with Mr Peenee when he says: I think sea glass is the world’s most beautiful trash.
Many thanks, Mr Devine, for the beautiful trash!
Meanwhile, I must apologise for my absence from the blogosphere. I am finding it impossible to comment using my Apple laptop on Blogspot blogs. I do, however, have access to another laptop so I will be catching up with everyone very soon. Thank you for your patience. Here is an upbeat tune…
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
