Just slippers, if I must, but prefer my feet to be bare and resting on a snoozing cocker spaniel (Bridget).

I would say Lexmark or Epson but you will gather I do not know what I am talking about.



If you meet someone whose name you have forgotten do you hit your head and say something apologetic about your failing memory or do you just say 'Hello ! How are you?' etc. and hope it will all come back to you.

(I had to think about it, J but I am fairly sure Packard and Delahaye are classic American cars.)
I definitely go for the bluffing it out and hope it comes back to me. In my job lots of people know me but I don't know them nearly so well. :redface:

Inkjet, but only because I cannot afford the purchase or toner prices for a colour laser job.

Tactfully honest. :wink:
Actually it would depend on the circumstances. I tend to be on the honest side, but things like, "Does this dress make me look fat?" is very subjective. Like how fat is "fat" or is it really the dress, etc.

Bananas: soft and sweet (very ripe) or solid and a bit tart?

Still green or I can't stand them unless whizzed in milk shake. The texture of a ripe banana is like something that's gone off *shudder

Definitely Stilton out of that choice! With a nice port preferably.

my better half is too hygienic for me to opt for something not actively cleansing - so bleach

Power (with sail in reserve) because sailing is just too much freaking work! ;)

For me, power is the reserve option. That's why it's called an auxilliary engine. I mean, you don't have an auxilliary sail, do you? Rant, rant rant!

And I'd love some marshmallow with that chocolate, please.

Both, but both are limited. The first by the number of books available - the second by the size of my wallet.

Book or TV/DVD version?

Book for me, nearly always. Very rarely, the film is as good as, or true to, the book, but it is rare. Ones that come to mind are "Shout at the Devil", although they changed the ending to make it less tragic; "Where Eagles Dare"; "The Day of the Jackal"; "The Pelican Brief". No doubt plenty more, but they would be swamped by the appallingly bad ones.

Ants are very clever and resourceful :) Dec is just a horrible midwinter month.

Once it would have been mountains every time, had no time for sunbathing. Now I have to admit that somewhere warm (and preferably quiet) would suit me old bones better.

Nice smelly underarm stuff or just sports deodorant?

[Marian, you seem to be overcooking your cabbage! Choose one of those cabbages with the curly leaves. Tear the leaves into short narrow strips, discarding the larger veins. This works for spinach as well.
Put about quarter of an inch of water into a large pan, bring to boil and add a knob of butter, also a little black pepper if you like such. A pinch of salt, or even a little garlic salt, can also be added (I leave out the salt for health reasons.)
Toss in the cabbage and reduce the heat for a fast simmer - keep turning the cabbage over. Cook for no more than a couple of minutes or so, just enough to get them it hot and coated with the butter but not wilting. The leaves should still be crisp and, if you have a good cabbage, a little sweet. I serve it with finely chopped crispy bacon but that might not suit you - any slightly salty meat, chopped small, should work, salt-beef, biltong etc. You can also add chopped, caramelised, tomatoes as well. Even caramelised onion . . . drool.]

(Dave, thanks for the tip on the cabbage. Didn't know that. Must be more to maturity than just chemicals :wink: You know a thing or two about cabbage.
