Why are you being a ______?

Not so dear friend. I just had a beautiful image in my mind of you being laid to rest with your faithful teapot at your side. And thought it might be well accommodated.

Sheer poetry.

Yes, I should have known that one. That's what took me so long! The rest were easy peasy, as the Two Fat Ladies say.

Many thanks for the welcome. I was there in 2001. One week was not enough. In my opinion, you Brits are living in the neatest country on the planet. If I could afford it, I'd live there myself.

Ah, I see I got spanked up there for commenting that someone murdered the thread with a personal attack of sorts.

Apologies to other posters for this ridiculous misinterpretation of my statement.

MODS/READERS PLEASE NOTE: The tiff that occurred at the top of page 4 was the result of a misunderstanding. Here's what I just said to candyfloss in a U2U:


When you said 'coldead hands' I thought you meant 'cold, dead hands'. I now see you meant 'scolded hands'. Is that so? No wonder we got confused.

The speed of the conversation and crossing posts was totally manic at the time, which explains both the typo on CF's behalf & my misinterpretation. The poor guy (CF) was desperately trying to understand my drift & understandably got frustrated, then Sleuth got frustrated at how the flow suddenly stopped & asked CF why he'd effectively killed he thread.

It'd actually be pretty hilarious if only the offenders could be exonerated. Come on mods, pour yourselves a cup of tea and give it some thought. Please. Just don't tell me you've only got coffee.
