I forgot that you hate these, Makes up for the intense dislike I have for entering an assinine code evry time I want to comment. Thanks a bunch, you effing spammers!

I can play the first twelve notes of "Smoke On The Water" on piano. That's iut. I used to know the opening notes of the theme from "The Godfather", but it's all a blur now.

Anyone who can play an entire song is a master in my book!

I feel for you. I avoid these like the plague.

'Smoke On The Water' is childs play. the hardest stuff to play on the piano are classical pieces.

Hey, I wasn't exactly bragging there, DM - LOL!

Nice to read yours, but I'm not joining.

Esther! You can cross off #7 in the stuff you plan to do before you die. No shit: blogging on to OtB has helped keep me sane during the GKR (Great Kitchen Rebuild) - also reading your comments on my blog.

Challenge for 7 things you can do:

Coronation Street: what is the correct term for the "cobblestones" which pave "The Street"?
Name of the brewers which supply the "Rovers Return"?

Mind you, you did say "almost any question"!

7 things I cannot do:

Read music
Listen to Wagner without getting outraged
Do things when they are meant to be done
Sing (anymore - too old and too many years smoking)
Enjoy domestic chaos (so really loving the GKR!)
Fart in public without embarrassment (should be part of growing old gracefully)
Operate a Dyson vacuum cleaner without swearing

Too tired and smelly to tackle another list...

Haha, thanks Mark!

Thanks gindy. Me too. That's why I never tag anyone but I try to be a sport and answer 'em... when I remember.

DM, true enough. I wrote a short song when I was like 10. I still remember how to play that one but very little else except this one classical piece whose name escapes me. Mom?

LOL batya. no problemo.

RM, thanks for your sweet words. Btw, I knew I should have put American soaps and not just soaps. As for the brewers, I think it's either Newton and Ridley or J W Lees and Co -- but I think it's the former. The cobblestones are a little hard for me.

Hi Esther,

You are becoming an expert with these memes!!

At 5:42 PM, Blogger Esther said...


You can't just post something like that and not fill us all in on how you're doing?!!? OK, headed over to Thoughts by Seawitch to see if you've posted how your house, etc., faired in Katrina!

At 6:22 PM, Blogger Mark said...

FFS, it's just a MEME, people, not the ebola virus I passed on!!!!

Hell. let's talk about that annoying word verification crap!!!


At 1:27 AM, Blogger rockmother said...

Esther, Newton & Ridley is correct! Cobblestones, strictly speaking, are sub-rounded - like naturally-weathered pebbles. The semi-dressed, squared-off stones used in older British streets are called "setts" or "sets".

Wot's a "meme"? Is it some sort of acronym, or wot? - Confused, Tunbridge Wells.

Word verification: very irritating! Strange font. Recently mistook j for i.

if you ever do get to Australia, you have a place in Victoria to stay....Anytime at all.
