    Flowers are more beautiful when

    still on the tree, bush, stem, or vine
    or
    well-arranged in a pile, vase, or basket?

    1) All Mod Cons.
    2) Malcolm Tucker, though Campbell seems a pretty accomplished wind-up artist.

    weird thoughts:

    I'd like to go out and buy Adam Boulton some delicious tapioca and a DVD of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.*
    or
    On the evidence of that compilation of Malcolm Tucker profanities, I see that In the Loop is a broader comedy than I'd either suspected or hoped it would be.
    ?

    * I should add that that's not a commentary on his behavior--which would be hypocritical--but a thought that I had on sight. :shuffle:

    Brilliant title f_d; you're a genius. Good to see halffull and l'etoile in here. :) You'd better be careful, halffull, you might get hooked on this game. ;)

    Ladies, men, pairs, dance. The first on your list, f_d. I wouldn't worry about recycling ideas from four years ago; I doubt that anyone remembers that far back.

    Least favourite of the summer months:

    Separate shampoo and conditioner. It's more trouble, but definitely worth it, though I guess it might depend on your hair type.

    Expensive conditioners or
    They're a waste of money because ordinary ones will do the job just as well?

    Beach

    Is this painting evil and haunted or just a plain awful piece of work that should be thrown on a bonfire? (featured on an episode of Weird or What? presented by William Shatner)
