    The World of the Snowflake

    Same here. I have cousins who are mixed race and they and their black relatives certainly didn't look like golliwogs. I was quite taken aback when I realised. As to Kinnock's statements there are no blue folk, that's not quite true. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Fugates

    Images that have been burned into your mind

    We had that on but I wasn't watching, was playing with my Sindy dolls, but I remember the concern in my mum's voice as she said 'something's wrong' and later she told me that he'd died. I know the footage has resurfaced but I don't want to see it. For me it would be seeing a dead new forest pony on holiday there when I was nine. I was a typical horse mad girl at that age and it upset me deeply. I can still see it clearly. Other things, a bird eating the remains of its newly deceased mate, which I think is the reason birds repulse me now, used to quite like them before that. When I was on my year abroad there was a fire in the hostel and while nobody was badly hurt, two students lost all their belongings, their sobs at this realisation were heart-breaking. And on a different note, the first time I ever knowingly saw a transvestite.

    Same. I actually thought he'd died some time ago.

    Holiday Thread

    I did, but I'm not sure I'd relish a return visit to Rome. It's nice, but a bit crowded and expensive, though I have to say the people were actually very nice .

    Holiday Thread

    Just got back from a few days in Rome. I'm dreading getting on the scales as the hotel breakfasts were delicious.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Sylvia Plath's son? He was Ted Hughes' son too of course. I almost forgot that.

      Lord Fellatio Nelson

      Without an accent, a bit like the voice over for Master Chef.

      I suspect, however, you have a slight Scouse twang to your voice!! :D

    2. Handrejka


      Well Scousers wouldn't think so, but it's definitely there when I recite the days of the week. It's not possible for me to say Tuesday without giving away my origins. Most of the time it's just generic northern.

    Carry On Dying

    It was an odd episode all round I thought. Have Tony Hawkes and Paul Merton fallen out, they seems oddly snappy with each other. I know that's part of the game but it didn't seem like it was good humoured the way in normally does.

    Carry On Dying

    She was also in The Smashing Bird I used to know with the recently deceased Sheila Steafel.
  12. I was in Cologne too. I wonder if we've met.

      Really? When did you live there? I lived in Cologne up to 1997, afterwards in Düsseldorf. Do you speak German?

    2. Handrejka


      I was in Cologne from 2000 - 2002. It's a lovely city, I'd move there again if I had the choice. I actually have an MA in German Translation though my everyday spoken German is a little rusty now.

    I was living in Germany at the time working as a teacher. As it was near the start of a new school year one of the teachers was having a get together at hers . I went to hers to help out and was greeted by 'I've just heard some shocking news' My first though was that she had some terrible gossip about one of the teachers, my next though was that Bush had been assassinated. I couldn't really process the news when she turned the television on. The get together went ahead and, as awful as this sounds, we enjoyed ourselves and although we discussed the events and how terrible they were they were not the only thing we talked about. I don't think we really realised how awful the whole thing was until the next few days.
