☯Bettie☯ Is it me or have some of these lists been around before? I noticed a bookshop one yesterday that I knew was a vibrant list before. I also remember starting up a hammer list because I spent time finding the youtube song

*shrugs*

Perhaps it is a way of cleaning up or engendering new interest.

ETA - apologies, my list was called 'blunts'

Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Yes, I remember "blunts."

Wanted this one to be more comprehensive, though -- sort of "blunts" and "sharps" combined! :) (Plus all the remaining contents of the average household toolbox ...)


message 3: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ Scrap the blunts list then, and 'sharps' and I'll put lopez toon on here. Sorted!

It is good to energize dead topics - you do a good job.


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Oh ... I didn't want you to scrap yours, though!! There's some stuff on those lists that I wouldn't necessarily include here (a "club" is a blunt instrument but not necessarily a tool, for example), so they all have a right to coexist in my book!


message 5: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ I always use a club when it's an electrical problem

hahahahahah


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Well, as long as it's a wooden one ... ;)




message 7: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ Little Women on this list?? am I missing sommit! There must a cover that holds this vote up!


message 8: by Hayes (new)

Hayes This cover is full of scissors.

'ere ducks - lends me de youse of one of them ococcular defiences so that I can see fer meesel'


message 10: by ☯Bettie☯ (new)

☯Bettie☯ ETA - Them theres looked liked spermitoesies to these ol' tired eyes.

You are right Hayes! As ever - didn't notice. Still can't compute in me wee noddle why that should be a cover fit for this story...

...but there it is!


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Scissors are fine. They're tools -- in a somewhat, err, roundabout way ...

Twas the list creator who added that particular book. :)

The womanly arts, dontcha know...


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Perhaps because of the cutting-off-hair-to-sell episode?

☯Bettie☯ Themis-Athena wrote: "Perhaps because of the cutting-off-hair-to-sell episode?"

Bet that is it!!
You are a marvel


Themis-Athena (Does not and never will own a Kindle) Totally random guess, and probably it's either a combination of the two things or someting else entirely!
