    Did someone say “Large brrrreasts!”?

    The Hildy enjoys Most Haunted much more than I find healthy. She especially likes it when Derek Akorah gets possessed by “spirits”. I admit that I quite enjoy it too even though I pour scorn on it and roll my eyes in an exaggerated fashion.

  2. Dom on

    Lol – someone got the boobaloid comment in before me. Nowt wrong with large boobaloids 🙂 Where we will have to take issue is this irrational hatred of sweetcorn. How can one possibly have tuna mayo and not put sweetcorn in it?

  3. The Boy Who Likes To... on

    Hasn’t CSI Miami turned in to a comedy of late.

  4. cataclismical on

    Dom – It is NOT an irrational hatred of sweetcorn! It is totally founded and rational! Cucumber can be picked out of said Tuna & Mayo .. sweetcorn cannot! *grins cheesily (which I can’t stand either I might add!)*

    I am off to form an ANTI-SWEETCORN group on Facebook (unless it has already been done)

    Boy – I have actually fallen asleep in the last few episodes .. I just like that I can pick it up and put it down without bothering too much what I have missed!

  5. blue soup on

    Oh! An anti-sweetcorn group! I’ll join!

  6. Dom on

    I’m not sure I can bring myself to a group dedicated to the hating of such a maligned vegetable. I do approve of the typo in the group name though 🙂

  7. cataclismical on

    Dom YOU MUST JOIN and stamp out this evil evil vegetable!

    The typo is doing my head in … they won’t let me correct it either!

  8. hoverfrog on

    *whispers* I like sweetcorn.

  9. cataclismical on

    NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

  10. Dom on

    But I like sweetcorn. I could no more join a group asking for the banning of sweetcorn than I could join one demanding boobaloids no longer be presented in pushup bra’s. Actually, if I had to choose I’d cave on the sweetcorn 😀
