Tchach, what a bunch o' ninnies. Book Tokens are literally the best present.

I had read it but only one time and that was borrowed. TBH, I don't think I'd bother buying it.

Period pain. WTF?

Because it's so much fun, Abbey. Get in touch with your Feminine Side.

Since I am so desirous of punching someone today, who should it be, and why?

Trump, or the person who set up the electoral system that got someone with fewer votes to win the race overall. Or Boris Johnson.

Who else ?!

All the people who write books that are so tedious it's a waste of time to try reading them.

Do you eat for pleasure or just because you have to?

How many books do you have to read?

Currently in my possession waiting to be read about 6. On my 'want to read' list too many to mention. And I have two on the go at the moment, which is normal for me.

Came back because I also forgot to ask a question! Must be catching, Mary. :lol:

What was the last book you bought (or downloaded onto an e-reader)?

The first three books in the 'Insanity' series by Cameron Jace, which were free on Amazon and I'd read the first one already but not the other two and the first one was really good (they're about an Alice and are all Alice in Wonderland-y) so I got them even though I normally don't like downloading 'bundles'.

Why don't Americans have the word 'colleague'?

I don't know. Especially as "coworker" just doesn't look right - it always requires a second glance to get from cow-orker to co-worker.

Will you be making Christmas puddings on Sunday?

No but I may make my Stollen.

Should Stollen have marzipan in the middle? (Self-answer is a resounding NO :shock: )

(Apropos colleagues, apparently they do have the term but tend to limit its use to the professions rather than just anyone you may work with....)

Nooooo, nothing should have marzipan; it's a crime against nature.

Thanks for the info, cestina... interesting!

How can I be hungry when I only finished my dinner half an hour ago?

I don't know, Abbey. I can only say that it happens to me too. I find that eating an apple or another small piece of fruit helps (fatty/sugary snacks currently being a no-no for me).

Why do some people persist in tempting me with high-calorie snacks, when most of them know that I'm on a diet?
