I seem to have a burning desire to interject semicolons whenever the Kitty’s not looking; though the problem is I really have little understanding of when to actually use one.
Do you ever use semicolons in your daily life?
If so in what context; for example, in prose for uni or a love note to your hamster?
This knowledgeable woman here wrote a grammar page which lists 5 rules of thumb of when to use them. How many of these rules did you know of? Can you list any without looking at the page?
I found rule No.4 & 5 particularly appealing. Was there a particular rule listed that you’d gladly take home to bed?
Can you be bothered to read up the rules for colons too?
This grammar woman’s now my favourite guru. Who’s yours; if not the Kitty?
Oh dear looks like my last 3 or 4 yrs have been my lusting aimlessly like a teenager after my should-be victims while they all slip through my claws. It’s so sad.
I hereby list victimless victim number 501: G* Catalan goat.
We did certainly connect, though maybe he’s just not that Emu-inclined
What can be done?
or don’t, and just ignore this question
I’ve joined this goal as I’m bored of the Kitty gnawing at my Emu wings. They’ve long turned into drooping bat wings.
Have a quick look at this mug that recently sold in a German furniture chain store. Can you spot the fatal design flaw?

1. Animal Olympics
2. Your choice
3. the next person’s
Please limit yourself to one film until we’ve hit 20 or no one has added to this list in a day. Let’s keep the list in order and you can write an explanation as to why you picked that film at the very end.
I chose Animal olympics as I saw it as a kid and couldn’t believe how boring and awful it was. My friend even fell asleep. I never forgot it
Sorry that I’ve not been on 43T for 9 days. Yes, that’s a long long time in Anne years, but i felt compelled as the Emu wasn’t making an appearance, so I figured there was no point hanging around here without her.
Of course I am very well, eating Dutch chocolate, drinking lashings of ginger beer and farting loads.
Don’t Risk Dudeness
If you’re a Yank did you get to see the recent Veet advert air before it got pulled? If so what were your thoughts when you watched it?
If you didn’t get to see it air, what are you thoughts regarding the Veet advert that’s been deemed as offensive by many?

I do wish that Kitty would wax her body fur more often.
If you’re following the trial, do you think Oscar Pistorius is deliberately putting on a high pitch voice during his trial to try illustrate that he does indeed scream ‘like a woman in a high pitch’ in order to help his case?
He’s trying to claim that the witness neighbours actually heard his screaming after the shooting and not his girlfriend Reeva during an argument
Bonus Q. Do you think Pistorius waxes his private bits?
When did you last eat fish?
What type was it?
Did you like it?
Did you cook it yourself?
What about seafood?
Do you ever feel like you fail at being “a woman” / “a man”?
If so what makes you feel like that?
SO often I realise how poor I am at the things I’m stereotypically meant to be good at or like. Eg make-up, dressing up, shopping and just now house decorating. I just realised I still have up a photo of my brother and wife at their wedding, when he’s since been divorced from her for 8yrs, has a new partner and baby. Opps. I only put it up in the first place as I thought I should
Tomorrow morning I’m meeting one of my many lovers for a coffee. His instructions for meeting are:
"Meet at 11 right in front of the West door of the Cathedral (the one that's looking where the sun sets)."
Ok, I’m new to this city. The Cathedral is enormous. Since when does a women known their West from their East or North? (ooh, that’s so sexist). It’ll be 11am, yes the morning, so how the hell will I know where the sun’ll set that evening?!
So my Q to you compassly-challenged females is:
Would you know which Cathedral door was facing West? (they certainly aren’t labelled as such)
Would you have noticed where the sun sets already?
Q to you guys:
WOuld you instinctively know which door was ‘West’ in a new city?
Would you give a female friend those instructions for meeting?
Would you give a male friend those instructions for meeting?
Ok, bash me for being so sexist. Had this lover said ‘the cute pink door’ I’d have been fine.
Bloody freezing stuck in this below sea-level bog land. Wish someone would pull their finger out of the dyke and flood the place. Then I could float out to sea and rescue my beloved Emu. Oh how I miss her. Shame she doesn’t give a crap about me. She probably doesn’t even remember my name anymore. I hear she’s busy heroically fighting with JinBoy out in EmuCrea to liberate it from those CossCat invaders. I think I’ll join her cause.
Don’t I look fetchingly exotically erotically sexy? as always
After Jin’s story about
pathetically, shamelessly having the hots for his baker’s pair of hot buttery croissants, l’émeu asks an innocent question:
What’s your favourite type of pastry dish, cake or freshly baked delight?
When did you last eat it?
How often do you tend to buy it?
How much does it cost?
Have you ever made it yourself?
Did you know what a hot crumpet is? image above. Have you ever eaten one?
Give me a hot bit of crumpet over a French tart any day
Anne was so brave and ventured to stay at the Emu’s nest for a couple of days. We had two Indian meals. One was a great Southern Indian buffet lunch and JoeyintheBush came too. A great value place which she actually introduced me to.
The other was my local Indian. We dined there on her last night and relaxed chatting for hrs. It was such a lovely evening. Anne’s adorable. The vegetarian dishes, for some reason, are largely labelled on the menu in Indian with no translation, which really helped Anne, so I took advantage and pretty much ordered for the two of us. What a great selection, though I have to admit Anne chose the best dish.fluke
Of course Mollie’s company was deeply missed
Shame you couldn’t join Anne and I today. We
didn’t missed you.
Though I have to let you all know while walking past old grave after very old grave, hundreds of them, virtually every other grave stone had the name ‘Annie’ on it. Really. It was very surprising just how many dead people are all called ‘Annie’ or ‘Anne’. So, of course, I had to point out to Anne that she had a very dead person’s name. Was this an omen, perhaps? Muahahaha
Mollie, If ever you want to visit Highgate Cemetery and visit Karl Marx’s grave or visit the West Wing for a tour let me know. For the record: we didn’t see any dead Mollies
Had the most amazing day with my Emu. She took me out for a cheap, cold buffet of slop she insisted was Southern Indian food. Then she made me pose as a doctor for a kinky kittygraphic photo shoot. She’s awesome. I think i’ll skin the cat for gloves.
.. which 43Ter’s popped over for tea at the Emu’s and is having to sleep on that rather stinky mattress right now?
Do you think you’re a good person?
Are you honest?
Would you want to know yourself if you were someone else?
Edit: here’s an article about a python eating a crocodile after a 5hr battle.
Bonus Q: Would you eat snake?
Would you eat crocdile
Anne’s usually very polite, but my lodger really really annoyed her so she squirted ketchup all over his clean white shirt and poured her strawberry and catnip tea over his head. She was awesome! She’s my hero! ♥
And I’m firing that Kitty
