Silly - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Silly
I did something I've never done before at lunchtime.

Guess.


Clarification: I had never done this thing before at lunchtime or at any other time. (And it's really not that interesting, I was just being daft & interested to know what people thought I might have done.)

Current Mood: procrastinatory

- Went to a makeup counter in a department store and had one of those free consultation/trial session things?

- Chatted up a stranger in the street and ended up with a date?

- Cycled round the entire Cambridge ring road in one go?

(can you tell by the number of comments I'm making in your journal today that I'm in a procrastinatey mood too?)
j4 From: j4 Date: October 7th, 2004 08:03 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't even think I'd want to do any of those, to be honest. I don't use makeup; I'm still recovering from the last failed relationship so I don't really want to date anybody (though it would be nice to randomly meet somebody in town who turned out to be nice, and maybe go out for a drink with them and other friends some time, if that counts); and the idea of that much cycling makes my legs hurt just to think about it!

OTOH the thing I did wasn't as interesting as any of those, so. :)

dipped something savoury, of the sort that one would never sensibly dip in chocolate, in chocolate ?

The counterpart to that is that some classy curry houses will give you an After Eight mint at the end of your meal (*) and one of my friends once used his after eight to pick up the last parts of the curry sauce from his not-quite-finished balti dish. Classy.

Original question: did you save a life? (I know that you used to give blood, but that's not it...)

(*) One curry house memorably bought out a big two-layer box of the blighters just for our party of 15. I think it was Jamal's in Oxford, but it might just as easily have been somewhere in Birmingham.

Went to a French restaurant and ate snails and frogs' legs.

Played a piano in a shopping precinct.

Replied to a web submission, saying what you really thought of it.

Watched Casablanca.

Oh I wish. :)

Sadly, though, no: none of the above.

Ate the lunch you made yourself that morning? No, you must have done that before :) No idea, but I am curious!

I reckon it probably involves soft fruit of some description.

(Madam.)
j4 From: j4 Date: October 7th, 2004 08:13 am (UTC) (Link)
Oo-er! Sadly that's not it. I did have soft fruit at lunchtime, but I've done that before.

Went to the Gym?

Give us a clue: have you done this before, but never during a lunch break?
j4 From: j4 Date: October 7th, 2004 08:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Went to the Gym?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. No. No, no, no.

have you done this before

No, neither in a lunchbreak or elsewhen. (I've clarified this in the original entry now, sorry it was a bit ambiguous.)

Is it a trick question in that it isn't a question, and the answer is contained within the posting?

Or in other words, did you guess?

No! That would have been really clever. Too clever for me this late in a long week. :)

(I have guessed before, though. Lots of things. And usually been wrong.)

Eaten something you've never eaten before.
Signed up to do a charity stunt of the nature of abseiling down Carfax Tower (but a Tab-specific tower obviously, I don't know which would be most abseil-friendly, never having considered them in that light).
Bought lunch for a stranger.
Bought Woman's Weekly or something similar in tone.
Er...

I did briefly sign up to do a bungee jump for charity once, but was told not to by then-boyfriend, so un-signed-up.

Bought _Women's Weekly_ or something similar in tone.

I used to buy Prima occasionally, actually, and still sometimes buy the Sainsbury's Magazine... gosh, all my guilty secrets are coming out now.

Applied to the French Foreign Legion?
Found *just* the right item of clothing, without even looking?
Bought a live badger?

Somehow, I've managed to list them from "extremely improbable" to "I can just about see that happen".

My bursting wardrobes and chests-of-drawers are testimony to the fact that in fact I do this all the time. :)

Bought a live badger?

In the UK this would result in, at the very least, a £5,000 fine -- they're a protected species. Which is probably a good thing, really; but all the same, I would love to rear a little baby badger. (I would release it into the wild carefully when it was grown up of course, because a fully-grown badger is Big and Not A Sensible Pet.)

I have not applied to the French Foreign Legion. :)

Started crocheting a fluffy badger?

Set up the First Church Of The Badger God?

Sang the Badger Badger Badger song in public for five minutes, and then passed round the hat, gaining £3.79, three drachma and two slightly fluffy jelly babies?
j4 From: j4 Date: October 7th, 2004 09:47 am (UTC) (Link)
I can't crochet. :-(

The other ideas are excellent though!

Ran into the Cambridge Union shouting "Bogies" at the top of your voice while dressed as Queen Boadicea?
j4 From: j4 Date: October 7th, 2004 09:48 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't actually even know where the Cambridge Union is...

Drink a pint of buttermilk to line your stomach before going on an afternoon whisky binge?

Shave all your hair off?

Get a tattoo?

Play the bagpipes?

Commit a major crime?

Gave birth to a badger?

If I had been pregnant with a badger do you really think I could have kept it a secret from LiveJournal? :)
