Fran's 'some things you may not know about me...'

Some things you may not know about me are...
That laurel and hardy crack me up

That william shatner’s last album is one of my favourites
That I secretly fancy simon cowell a tiny little bit
That I have a note on my fridge that says “kill richard and therese” and another one underneath that says “yes, wring their scrawny little necks”
That I have an etsy shop CLICK AND VISIT!
That I have an alter-ego CLICK AND VISIT!
That we call the 210 ‘the poor bus’
That we have a running score for university challenge and ben’s probably winning by a small margin
That when I’m on the computer, I play masquerade by the carpenters over and over again and sing very loudly into a pen
That I hate see-saws
That I collect vintage sewing patterns and vintage teacups
That I’m a slow reader mainly due to an OCD, which requires that I take in every word absolutely thoroughly
That I have a pathological fear of lateness, which manifests itself in recurring dreams
That I have a pathological fear of parties (the grown-up kind not children’s…although, that’s another story).
That I am fiercely competitive in a passive aggressive way.

  2. When John and I watch university challenge I answer every question 'Potato', because in the law of averages one day that will be the right answer.

  6. I want to know more about your neighbours. What have they done? I hate their names.

  7. yes, their names say it all. i mean there's nothing much wrong with 'richard' as a name. but richard and therese...bbrrr!
    they are just a couple of bitter, moaning, alcoholic, chain smoking old queens. if we say we want to do something, they say 'but what about THIS and THIS and THIS!'

  9. i can vouch for eff that her neighbours smell. i used to bump into them in my dressing gown when collecting the post when we lived at eff & benny's and it was rather embaressing and richard always smelled of fags n booze and waffled on about nonsense. ugh.

  12. instead of meeting them, why not help us think up ways to damage their property without them knowing it's us.

  13. Pour water through the letter box then push some cress seeds through. Always amusing. Or my fave, put some dog or baby poo in a brown paper bag, set it on fire, knock on their door then run and hide and laugh as they open the door and stamp hard on the bag to put the fire out and get covered in poo.

  14. the poo one is genius. but since we share a commom hallway, and would therefore have access to their door, they may know it's us. especially as they already think we're childish and treat us like we're 12.

  19. My grandmother told me the story about the-little-girl-who-broke-her-jaw-by-standing-too-close-to-a-seesaw so often that I am convinced I saw it happen.

    I don't hate seesaws though.

  20. Grandmothers always have stories like that, mine told me if you picked your nose it fell off. And there was the story of the little girl who used to chew her hair, swallowed some and a fur ball grew in her tummy. I pick my nose and chew my hair.

    Claire, your website is lovely.
