What did you think?
That there is so little supervision of people with a big mouth but a currently RIGHTTHERE message, a helpfully diverting appearance, combined with a glaring gap in the market (and don't think that market is a good thing), that anyone can bag a sum of money their (questionably) good intentions are unmatched by their financial acumen.
Ask any academy.
Anyone involved in education will not be surprised.
Nope. I didn't know they made tv screens that colourful.
I found myself most perplexed about her. She seems to be an attention-seeking self-publicist who painted a picture of herself as one of the good guys but took more than she gave.
She was even more larger than life.
So who's bailing her out?
As if I didn't know.
How do you pronounce her name? Best answer gets a spangle.
The case of the woman who had been supported by the charity for 14 years intrigued me. She reminded me of a bird in a gilded cage. The charity seemed to have done nothing to 'move her on' with her life, they'd just kept her in a situation, providing for all her needs yet she still seemed trapped.
I think it's pronounced Bat-man-gelly.
(if you have Sangles they must be years old as they haven't been manufactured for a lifetime, so I'll give the reward a miss, if you don't mind!!!)
I refer to her as Batmanjellyjar. I thought she came across as completely barking. Her laugh was chillingly manic and she needed everyone to be dependent on her to bolster her up. ( Not that she needed much bolstering in her person because she was like an enormous whale) And those tartan fingerless gloves were well spooky!
I found a packet of them in a box of mementos from a previous life. I can't remember what I might have bought them for, but I can assure you it had nothing to do with my diet or kiddy fiddling.
If I had to hazard a guess, they probably date back to my NHS days when I might have offered one to a kid I was doing a sweat test on to stop it screaming when I applied the electrodes. Scream and choke, if that suits you, or suck nicely on the sweet while I extract the sweat out of you, was the general idea.
I wonder how much money was raised from Government and donors together.
Which Spangles have you got? If you've got the fizzy Orangeade ones I'll certainly be brushing up on my 'best answers'
It's difficult to be sure. The box they were kept in would have been kept in various locations before the Spangles saw the light of day again. Sometimes in a loft, sometimes in a garage. They take some separating from each other now, since it looks like heat they experienced at some point in time enabled their sugary stickiness to ooze out of the wrappers and there were a couple of batteries in the box that I doubt would be up to much now, given how much they also leaked, but a Spangle is still a Spangle, ain't it?
OOOh, manky Spangles with added corroded battery goo - how could we resist?
Those would be the 'Old English' flavoured ones then.
Those OE ones were horrid.
Double wrapped! How neurotic.
Got the brush? He's holding it, you stupid woman.
Frankly that neckerchief he's wearing is quite gay.
Why is he painting the chest girlie-pink?
And do you think we may possibly attribute Camilla's portliness to a predilection for spangles. Maybe she makes her colourful yurts from flattened and welded spangles?
