I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. LOL@where did I put my brain?

    Mine has frozen with the deep plunge in temperatures! Shiver me timbers and break out the long johns!

    wordwitch88 = Pat = me 😉

    Another great roundup – have to set aside some cozy snuggle reading time! Thanks for the great prompt Jane 🙂

    1. Other people manage to know the real names of blogger friends. I don’t have the right antennae! Thanks for telling me. It’s like the dilemma of whether to tutoyer or vouvoyer in French. Nobody asks outright which would you prefer, they pussyfoot around, letting a ‘tu’ slip out and apologising until the other person says, no, that’s okay, ‘tu’ is fine.

      1. *snorting* with absolute laughter …. I’m Canadian, live in Quebec, speak French – and the “polite address” “tu or vous” …. always a stick in the mud; the “familiar” vs. “the polite/respectful/elder” stance – as if a simple word like “Mr. or Mrs. or Miss or Ms.” really matters so much when it’s the rest of the address and content, tone etc. counts! “bollocks” I say! 😉

      2. The Québécois are not quite as coincé about it as the French and the ones I’ve met bandy the tu form about as if it’s perfectly natural. Makes some people bristle, but I’m foreign, so I don’t get the vibes every time anyway. Politesse is a minefield 🙂

      3. LOL …. absolutely – it all depends on location location location and linguistics and attitudes can be such a minefield!

        Best to just walk with a sense of humour and a smile, after all, it’s really just the effort to communicate that counts.
