    New Here And Just Saying Hello

    I have returned after a couple of years off. I didn't post much before. Have also entered the DDP for the first time in a few years. I expect that like previous years, all my list will see the year out without bothering the undertaker.

    What Are You Giving Up For Lent?

    I am considering giving up alcohol for Lent, but I may just give up wine. Is that cheating?

    Paul O'Grady

    They're live. Half an hour before they were still promoting today's show, so it seems to be a very last-minute decision.

    Paul O'Grady

    I'm shocked he has a daughter. Seems odd to have a sudden absence though when that report is a week old.

    Paul O'Grady

    Just before today's show they announced that O'Grady couldn't do today's show, instead they would be showing a repeat. I doubt anyone would have noticed, but before the previous programme they were still trailing the live programme, so it seems a bit of a sudden decision. Another heart attack maybe?

    Derby Dead Pool 2007

    My team isn't up yet, but I don't really expect any of them to die. Last year I had only one death, and that was pretty late on. I am so convinced of my bad luck that I have actually chosen my joker as the person I least want to die. I don't want him to die not because I like him particularly, but because I know that it will really piss off someone I know if they survive another year.

    Birthdays, Births, Anniversaries ,etc ...for 2007

    I always thought Vinegar Tits was a woman. I wonder how many others I have given the incorrect gender in my mind? Happy Anniversary, by the way.

    Thank you, Lady Grendel. I hope we both live longer than Ross.

    Derby Dead Pool 2006

    I am astonished that I have finally had a hit on the DDL with Ross Davidson. I thought being on my list was the kiss of life. The fact that it happened whilst I was on my honeymoon makes it even sweeter.
  13. No, Lady G, I never get further than drinking the gin.
  14. Look at your own DNA. I got this from a "100 things to do before you die" booklet, free with New Scientist a couple of years back. Equipment: salt, a strong drink and some washing up liquid. "First get a sample of your own cells by swilling salty water vigorously around your mouth for half a minute. Spit it out into a small glass containing a teaspoon of washing up liquid diluted with three teaspoons of water. Give this a good stir for a few minutes so that the detergent can break open the cells and release the DNA. Then, very gently, pour a couple of teaspoons of ice-cold strong alcohol down the side of the glass. Gin works fine. If you are careful, it will form a separate layer on top of the spit-salt mix. Soon you'll see spindly white clumps forming in the alcohol" ...and that's your DNA! Or you could just drink the gin.

    Near misses 2006

    Am I alone in never having heard of him? Almost as famous as the Queen? Are you kidding?

    Ideas and possibilities for 2007

    If he lasts out this year it looks like Danny LaRue could be a good bet for next year. BBC News link

    Derby Dead Pool 2006

    I am convinced that no one on my DDP list will die. Perhaps I should sell spaces on there next year to those who aren't quite ready to go despite a terrible prognosis.

    Till Death Us Do Part

    I just got engaged - is there a male version I could use?
  23. MizzJacktheCat


    Thank you, Captain Oates. My personal favourite is HCW's, however.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    It is a great book, Godot, and very easy to read. Quite modern in its outlook despite the setting.
