Matches ! by johnnythemonkey on 7 June 2008 5:47pm
 
Regular posters will know that I'm a heavy smoker ( at least 2 a day.......packs )but I'm using matches for the first time in years........how quaint ! I could'nt find a lighter and Meg must've bought matches to light her horribly smelling scented candles.
It just seems strange to see my ashtray filling up ( quickly ) with spent matches.
Now aint this an interesting thread ? :)

Keeping on this interesting thread, I used to know many tricks with matches ( I was an arsonist before I was an arse ) but they, like me belong to another era.

I thought this might have been about Euro 2008.

That would be more interesting Ken, just a pity that we aint competing and although the English aint there either, I bet 1966 gets a few mentions.

Ooh well guess wot I used to put all my used matches in a bowl, did it for about 12 years, I lost them in my divorce (seriously!!)
NOW I collect those plastic bits off the top of bread bags, I attach them to the dish drainer, I must be compulsive obsessive I reckon. I have... (goes off to count them...) 82!! That's a lotta bread.

Karen, you make me feel almost sane. I'm still using the same box of matches, so maybe I don't smoke as much as I think.
Bread tags ? That shall be my new hobby. :)

Well at least I can beat him at something ! Tell him I said he's an ugly big git...........but say it quietly. :)
For those of you that don't know, Karen's other arf was really whacked with the ugly stick........but he's huge and scary- looking........ I like you 'Ray',..... honestly.

Lucky for you he's asleep.

I'm feeling brave.....wake him up ! :)
