Number 21 amused me particularly, not least because I can't remember the last time I listened to any F&F. Amazing what's lurking amongst the 10,000 plus songs on my iPod. I'm leaving it on shuffle for the afternoon and will go where it takes me...

Oh I did laugh at the idea there aren't enough naked men amongst your friends.

Merlin said...

Call me a romantic, but I love answer number 3 (and 11 as well to be honest, if only). And 6 risks being in a perpetual loop.

Thank you for playng along.

Cal - it's been a source of constant and ongoing disappointment to me ;-)

Merlin - you lovely, soppy, romantic you - some were very sweet weren't they? #11 is very true, which reminds me how blessed I am.

Happily #4 wasn't true, #7 is possibly true if we go for artist rather than song, #9 is quite untrue, but does suggest that I'm ahead of my time as it would have been the perfect answer to the next question!

#13 does sort of summarise key moments in the life of this night owl, but #15 portrays a level of determination, certainty and confidence I've not discovered as yet.

Hit and miss, but good fun - thanks for the game.

I'm getting an interesting idea for the next ops weekend. What are the chances of getting Stickler, Shorty, Rector, Pete and Van Lancker to join in?

Time Bandit said...

I'm up for it!

Oh my, what wheels have been put in motion?

Ah well if I recall the full lyric, it specifically refers to breakfast timing. I foresee a situation where I'll never have been more grateful for not being a morning person.

I was going to make a comment about early risers and keeping things (cereals) down...but I'm seeing that for the bear trap of innuendo it is, so shall resist...
