03. When and how did we meet?
04. Do/Did you have a crush on me?
05. Would you kiss me?
06. Describe me in one word.
07. What was your first impression?
08. Do you still think that way about me now?

1 i z said...

Stick, so glad you don't think I'm scary anymore!

Steve - curry flavoured edible shoes? well hey who wants practical fashions eh?

Anne - of course I know who you (and John) are! Well in an internet sense at any rate. You are however wronger than a wrong thing about celery. Although you do home make chorizo so all things can be forgiven!

Darren - you know me well AND are prepared to have me look after your children?!? As for why you think of me as smiley - well I guess that's cos you make me smile :-)

1 i z said...

Sally - I fear people will be getting mixed messages, I mean if I turned you down (as if I would!) why was I in your bed when you left for the ferry? Is our shocking secret out?

Laura - oh it's been too long since we met up and discussed the physical similarities of Moomintrolls and torch-song-singers! Soon I promise. And about that GB offer... ;-)

Katie - ah to be remembered as one who eats lobster - I feel I've skipped up a social class or two. My mother would be so proud!

Myn - you can mess with me anytime hun, I'm a mere pussycat beneath the rough exterior. (of course it's well documented that I think pussycats are the spawn of satan, but...). In return for a fridge magnet (how random!), I could give you a blog?

14. Well now, you know me and blogs. But you never know, I might crack after living with Pab for a bit :)

1 i z said...

Caroline - for a second there I read your answer number 9 as the response to question number 10! And yes I also hope we'll always be friends. Now play along and put it on your blog woman - go on be brave!

Jude - ah 'a good fine man to treat me right', what a lovely thought, recent models have been a bit substandard ;-) But hey who needs men eh? Looking forward to sharing some joie de vivre with you in August (aka important meetings if any one asks).

1 i z said...

Emma - hmmmm you may well 'crack' after living with Pab for a while, but if it's just in terms of relenting and getting a blog, then I think you'll be able to count yourself lucky ;-) btw it's been a pleasure getting to know you, our Pab deserved a fine woman and you fit the bill perfectly. Plus now he has a fine woman in his life I won't have to spend W&P weekends discussing the woes of his love-life with him in corners such that people (apparently) assume we're an old married couple! And hey we wouldn't want this rich doting fella you've got planned for me getting the wrong idea now would we?

13. "This road takes us back on to the motorway"
14. Regrettably, I am blogless. But you can mail me if you like

1 i z said...

Rob - this "subtly different way", would that be a "aha tis all smoke and mirrors" type of subtle difference?

And if you want a blog... ;-)

Anne said...

Oooer - Liz knows who I am!

But I'm afraid you have me all wrong - definitely NOT a domestic goddess - they have things like "tidiness" and "washing up" all sorted - both concepts I have great difficulty with...

Anonymous said...

Hey Liz, as soon as I typed 'rich, doting boyfriend' I gave myself a firm, metphorical, right-on feminist kick in my stereotype-biased arse for suggesting that that would fix everything. Anyway, I'm glad P had you to share his angst with, I'm sure you were able to gently point him in the direction of sanity. It's been great fun getting to know you (who else whould I have shared nose-bending and tongue-rolling with at half-one in the morning? Actually, best not answer that one) and I hope we have plenty of future opportunities to laugh and share stories, and generally indulge in acidic wit and much silliness.

Here's a challenge for you (and fellow travellers in blogville): find ten people who would willingly read any blog that I would write, and I might do a trial one. Just a trial mind....just to see...

E x

Caroline said...

dear E.
Liz would
Caroline would!

that'll be 2 then....

aw go on...please.....!
