The positive thread. find something, anything

Every morning when I light the stove to boil water for a cup of tea, the clicking of the piezo lighter thing sounds eerily like the start of Run DMC “Tricky” or “Sucker MCS”

I can’t decide which one, but it’s a great way to start the day.

When you put off buying something until the last possible moment, begrudgingly traipse down to the store and find the item on sale for this week only.

When peeling an onion and the top layer skin just comes off perfectly.


#1144

Ditto with peeling garlic


#1145

Or a boiled egg!


#1146

Or a catholic missionary.


#1147

We’ll have to take your word on that one.


#1148

I think it’s very vital.


#1149

Getting a parking spot right out front.


#1150

Sorry?

Everyone knows you don’t peel a missionary, … the skin is the tastiest part!

Human crackling, … mmmm.

I just found out there’s a Chaucer Crescent in Canterbury.
That made me smile.


#1152

There’s also a function centre called ‘Chaucers’.
Or there was, once.


#1153

Never would have picked you as a fan of poetry Wim :blush:


#1154

Not bad. I’m a big fan of Melway 110 K8 (and its immediate surrounds).


#1155

Oh come now!
He’s a ■■■■■■ romantic!!!


#1156

Wouldn’t call myself a fan, but I do appreciate some.
Billy Collins is pretty good.


#1157

Yes, Billy Collins is excellent. So is Roger McGough.


#1158

Luddite!
Who the fark uses a Melway any more?


#1159

Was only joking Wim, am sure you mentioning Chaucer Crescent had nothing to do with the poet. :smile:

The same kind of people who enjoyed our Eighties premierships?
