Questions on children’s gameshow

These are questions from kid’s TV show “Den of Doom”, which seems to be aimed at 10-12 year olds. My kids were watching it earlier, and some of the questions were so amazingly hard, I was just as clueless as the hapless contestants.

Here are some of the questions. Try not to use Google! Answers tomorrow… πŸ˜€

1. What travels the world, but stays in the corner?
2. What country banned Donald Duck because he didn’t wear pants?
3. What gets bigger, the more you take away?
4. What runs faster, an ostrich or a horse?
5. What do monkeys fling at each other when they’re angry?
6. How many bones are there in your ear?

Be honest!! πŸ™‚


Pie O’Clock

My brothers are BIG fans of pie. Pie for any occasion, you don’t need a reason, it just has to be pie.

We’ve been in Donegal for the weekend and my brother Marty was heading up there for the rest of the week now that we’re back. He has been jokingly emailing me all of last week instructing me that “I need to leave him some pie” in the house for his arrival. I’ve basically been telling him to make his own chuffin’ pie, because whilst I agree that pie is a delicious home cooked treat, it takes ages to make.

When we were away, I bought a chicken to roast and there were some left overs, but not enough to feed the four of us the next night. So, what do you think I did?

That’s right! It was Pie O’Clock in the McEldoherty household! πŸ˜€

Oh, and when Marty gets to Dunfanaghy this afternoon, this will be in the fridge to greet him. πŸ˜›

Invading the dreams of others

My friends Lou and Phil recently moved to Sydney in Australia, having previously lived in New Zealand for a year. I know it’s been a big upheaval for them, but hope that things are settling down now, and that life in Oz will be everything they’ve ever dreamt of.

That said- apparently, Lou has been dreaming about ME! πŸ˜› She sent me an email earlier and I know she won’t mind me posting it for your amusement. πŸ™‚

Hi Suzy,

im just dropping you a line because i had a lovely dream about you last night and i thought you would find it amusing. Basically Phil and i were back home and all of our mutual friends were together in a bar. Pretty usual, except you were the landlady serving everyone drinks and it seemed to be like a local bar for local people (in the league of gentlemen sense). We seemed to be the only ones there (which given our drinking capacity im sure would not have impaired your income). You looked just as you did the last time we saw you before we left for NZ and seemed really happy in your role. I was really happy too, cause im assuming you were giving me mates rates! It was a really comforting happy dream and it resonated with me as soon as i woke up.

I think its all easily explainable though……….i’ve been missing everyone at home, Phil’s cousin in Christchurch just bought a bar in the countryside and as you have always been the consumate hostess, you would be the natural landlady figure. No psychoanaylis required there then! Of course its possible that there is an underlying deep-seated meaning to all of this and in my professional opinon it means that you and Ian should buy a pub in Dunfanaghy and invite everyone down for regular lock-ins!

For those of you who don’t know, The League of Gentlemen is a very bizarre comedy show that we get over here- it’s set in the Yorkshire Dales, is frequently quite bloody and features at times fairly strong horror, but it’s also pant-wettingly funny. I’m not too sure why a pub I run (even in Lou’s subconscious) would be similar to anything featured in The League of Gentlemen. I don’t know what this says about her opinion of me… πŸ˜€

For the record though, a lock-in (even if it has to be virtual) sounds like a great plan. Thanks Lou, for making me smile today!
