September 10th through September 16th is:
International Flirting Week:  (Week of Valentines Day)


If you give your sweetie pretty flowers will she turn on her flirty powers.


Nice pick-up demo. The ball's now back in my court. Don't you just find this kind of chat up-lifting mate? You may not agree with this proposal but I do.

On Valentine's Day, many people - like me - take heart and try again.

You may be aware that Richard III has been found in a car park in Leicester. I don't know what all the fuss is about, I've found Richard III's in car parks all over the country.

A pun, a pun, my Kingdom for a pun!

Can someone on The TNS Awards Committee kindly insert Donnah's name at the base of her All-Heart Award (see above)? Sloppy negligence! Someone dropped the ball

Don_1, perhaps you're thinking that their stock is suffering in Asia. But we don't give many awards there, so we're safe!

sniff sniff What's that smell? sniff sniff Is it gas?

I'd better take a look at the oven.

Its no good, I can't see anything under here and the torch (US = flashlight) has a flat battery. I know, I'll strike a match to see where I need to put this gas patcheo. Oopps....

No need to strike a match! Gazpacho soup is best served cold!

Well, you didn't leave mush room for me to fit in an extra pun or two there, did you. As Para Gastronome Pt. Parts said when cooking supper for the regiment, "You certainly know your onions."

I suppose that would be a sort of Alpahbetti Spagetti with only A, B, C, D, E, F & G, some flat, some sharp and perchance the odd few augmented.

You can find Alphabetti Spaghetti at your favorite local bar, but you must wait in line for it. Delegate: have one of your staff pick it up instead. They can whistle a tune while they're waiting. But encourage them to eat with a fork to maximize spaghetti twirlability.

US = favorite. I don't want to confuse Don_1. He often clarifies words internationally.

A florist asked me, "what's your favourite (US = favorite) flower?"
I replied, "Self raising."
...torch (US = flashlight)

Without such occasional clarification, these misunderstandings could lead to another Revolutionary War. I'm sure you understand.

I'm living on (probably) the other side of the world. Whilst one could argue that 2:30pm is too early for dinner and too late for lunch, it's not unusual for us Australians to be up.
