    That may have been the newt's Halloween costume ...
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    I won a jar of chutney in a facebook competition so I am crossing off J. Does the newt think that guessing the number of mini eggs in an empty chutney jar counts as effort?

    No the newt doesn't think guessing is "effort". If you had calculated the number of eggs based on the volume of the jar and the size of the eggs that is effort.

    (I think the newt feels she has to say no as somebody mentioning no names *cough* Mansey *cough* said she was too soft)

    I just saw the jammies, flat shoes and knickers too.

    Well if you can call them knickers, I would call them cheese cutter wires, you just can't un-see somethings you know.

    Forget about the wearing and sharing and caring my eyes burn already

    Are you embarrassed yet

    For the first time in a long, long time, no comps yesterday; was off shooting otters in Argyll. So will tick that off - a bit ambivalent about it, natch, but at least gain a tick. And before anyone goes off the deep end, consider the meaning of shooting.
