childhood mistakes and compost

Cheryl tagged me for this a while ago and I've only just got my thoughts together to do it ...

1. Hum a jingle of which you know all the words. LOUDER. Now write it down so we can remember it too:
Double your money
Double your fun
With Double-Mint Double-Mint
Double-Mint gum!

Only it's not a jingle for a real thing, it's from 'Equus', which we were shown at school and which seriously wigged me out. Do NOT watch or read it if you like horses and/or are of a sensitive nature.

2. As a kid, you played a board game over and over. And you cheated. What was it?
I never cheated! No, really. I was too scared of being found out.

3. What was the name of a song you have been singing the incorrect words to all these years. What were you singing, and what should you be singing?
Oh crikey. Millions. Can't think of one that I can tell you WHAT I was actually singing though. I used to sing Karma Chameleon very loudly, and allegedly with both the wrong words and the wrong tune, at age about 12, much to the amusement of my classmates.

4. What embarrassing childhood story do your parents bring out just to mess with you for their own amusement?
The day I dropped the baby in the birthday cake, face down, at a friend's birthday party. Luckily, it was a sponge, so she didn't sustain any injuries - she was quite happy, I think. And also luckily, everyone else thought it was hysterical. I was mortified.



We are off to collect a composter now, that we've found via Freecycle. I can honestly say that if we didn't come across one, I would have had to divorce B; our yard is filling up with pots full of decomposing vegetable matter.

Lovely.
