Cyberpete from Denmark has tagged me. I don't do tags - so here goes.

5 things in my BAG:

1: Prehistoric mobile as used by Barney Rubble

2: Keys

3: Credit note worth £27 to spend at NEXT.

I can't stand NEXT so I can't find anything to spend it on.

4: Reading glasses - YES it will be your turn one day.

5: This lip balm - lovely.

5 favourite things in my ROOM:

1: Bastet
The cat godess

The Jaazz fan brought it all the way back from Egypt for me. It was long after the divorce.
It weighs a ton.

2: This poster

3: Advertising sign from car boot sale (50p).

It's in Portuguese but Duckworths is/was a Manchester firm

4: My bust.

5: Large white squashy sofa where I recline
I call it a settee - what's the difference?

5 things I always wanted to do.

1: Wear a pair of new trousers without having to take them up.

2: Sing with a band in the style of Chrissie Hynde.

3: Visit Mexico

4: Visit the North East (yes I always go south)

5: Live in a luxury South facing penthouse with a balcony view of the city and the hills in the distance.

5 things I'm currently into:

1: NCIS - I'm addicted.
The women are great especially this one.

Abi is a genius punk/goth forensic expert.
She's the first person ever to make science sexy.

2: ASDA Puy Lentil and Tomato Sauce

Two for £2 Delicious.

3: Sandals
I'm still wearing Docs, but I suspect that summer may have arrived.

4: Websites - I want my own.

5: Idling (of course!)

5 Persons to TAG:
First - three people who tagged me (revenge)

plus: Stitchio and sl

Remember - there's no need for pics.

Go on - it's a good one.

That Cat Goddess looks a bit too smug for my liking. Is she wearing Eau de Duckworth?

Blogger I, like the view, still said...

how bizarre - I have one of those busts, only mine is a full size mannequin

I will take up the torch and run with it, and you're right - there won't be pictures (well, no photos of mine anyhow)

Blogger MJ said...

Where can I get some of that Eau de Duckworth?

Will it make me smell like Jack and Vera?

All v. cool (the complete opposite to me, actually). A white squashy sofa? You must be very good at avoiding food/drink spillages. What's the secret?

... and reading glasses. Er, yes ... ahem ... cough ...

Love your cat goddess!

Re Next - if you don't like their clothes take your gift voucher to the Home Section - they've got a great art deco loo roll holder, the odd nice clock and other bits and pieces - I'm sure you'll find something!

Well I wouldn't expect you to worship a cat goddess.
Are there any dog gods?
Dog is god written backwords isn't it?

My bust has never reached full size.
I'll be over to read it.

I don't think Vera will smell so good by now.

Or is she still with you in Canada?

When I moved into the white cube I had to be cool. No more kitsch.

The sofa is covered by an ASDA throw (also white). They are dead cheap and easy to wash. For serious stains there's always Vanish spray.

My God I sound like Anthea Turner.

The trouble with NEXT is that they spoil all their clothes by a stupid bit of embroidery or a bow or some unnecessary coloured piping.

I'll look for a new table lamp.

I love Abby on NCIS. She's so funny and smart. You're right, there are some great women on that show.

That bastet looks malevolent to me. It will put the evil eye on you and cause you to break out in boils.

Kill it at once.

Blogger The [Cherry] Ride said...

What, all that and no mention of Helen Mirren's boobs?

5:53 pm  
Blogger CyberPete said...

I didn't think you were a french vanilla girl.

Your 5 things I always wanted to do are so much better than the ones I could come up with. Bugger.

Love your bust (didn't think you'd ever hear me say that eh?)

6:12 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Hello Dinah:
Isn't she marvellous - let's hope lots of young women will be inspired and stop trying to be Lindsay Lohan or similar.

I was a bit surprised when he carried it back for me - especially as he was with his new woman.
Now I understand why.
*Trembles with fear*.

I suppose I could have listed her boobs under '5 things I always wanted to do' - er no - that can't be right can it?

I just love vanilla everything - from ice cream to air freshener.
I love my bust too - although if you click the picture you can see it's a bit rusty.

I see you have our phone next to your cat goddess.

Agree about NCIS - better characters than CSI.

My version will follow in due course/the fullness of time/whatever.

Blogger savannah said...

ncis rocks, sugar! wait until you get this season's finale! xox

love your list, btw ;-)

11:50 pm  
Blogger Dave said...

I would never dream of commenting about a lady's bust.

7:34 am  
Blogger stitchwort said...

Done it.

And if you achieve your ambition of visiting the North East, let me know and we can arrange a meeting - if you think it should be risked. We might not like each other.

9:00 am  
Blogger KAZ said...


I couldn't really get into CSI.
I was persuaded to try NCIS and I won't miss it now.

Hello again Savannah:
Can't wait.
Thanks :)

You are the very model of tact and diplomacy.

That was quick - I'll be over soon.
I know I'll like you - even though you're about a foot taller that I am.

We could ask Dave as well.

My opticians keep telling me I will never need reading glasses... they rant on and on about it as though it's something to be proud of (being short-sighted). I thought my eyesight was going when I found I couldn't read the print on the side of things in the shops, then realized if I take my glasses off, the print stops being tiny and far-away.

Tag taken up... not posted yet, but give me time. :-)

A rusty bust?

I think you should have at least waited until they started working with silicone. That doesn't rust.

Done fulfilled my taggy obligation. :-)

Blogger Flaming Nora said...

Kaz, I'm off on me bank holiday jollies, will respond to your tag on my return. And consider me a willing guide on your first trip to the north-east, pet.

6:38 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

My mate Eileen is 60 and still doesn't need reading glasses. However, I've had to see her across the road since she was 25 as she's too vain to wear her everyday specs.

Ah silicone - I find a couple of old socks works almost as well.

Good for you - I'll be over.

Thanks luv!
Will you show me all the low dives and gin palaces?
And will we have to walk/stagger down the street in the biting cold with no socks or cardigans?

Plus you can take them out when you get old so you won't be the that 80 year old with bigger and perkier boobs than all the other women and girls on the beach.

8:52 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

With my habits I'll be lucky to reach 80 - never mind the beach.

I refer to NCIS as the 'flirt-fest' and enjoy, although it's a bit worrying how many people meet a sticky end in Virginia.
Abby is my least favourite character because of her pre-historic brow, but if she'd just slow down a bit, I could learn lots of science; I prefer the Israeli agent who has a fetching way in cargo pants.
How far along are you? Only I think the writers have run out of nasty things to do to the Director's hair....

6:31 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

I also love officer David - another excellent role model with a great attitude.
The director is too botoxed for my liking.
We've just finished series 4.

this must have slipped my mind. . . I do apologise

if I manage to remember, I'll do it today!
