Hoarse from Laughter



Last night was the local pub quiz night - this is made hilarious by the antics of the quizmaster. Eight teams of 4 people took part and unfortunately the team I was in came 2nd last! If we had come last we would have won the booby prize which is often better than the 'real' prize. Last night the losers received Avocado's from Lidls (best price) and highlighter pens!!! So far I have never come last and once first (when Husband was not around - which should tell you something!!). Having thought I was 'laughed out' with no more breath to spare, the quizmaster launched into reading an email he had received from a long lost "friend" (unrequited) via the Friends Reunited website. It was several pages long - everybody was splitting their sides and gasping for breath - well done quizmaster - the entertainment was fabulous.

This-afternoon I've found a whole lot of English blogs! As an exile (though a very happy one) anything English gets me going. I'm a poet. I'd love to try to write a poem about your 'web and berry' pic. Would you allow that? I'll acknowledge you, of course. brebry@gmail.com

Sounds brilliant fun. I'm usually in the near-to-bottom team too.

you know that is one thing we miss about Britain the pubs, they don't have "pubs" over here, well not true British pubs, just bars, and they are not the same.

Glad you had a great night out.
