Rosemary (grooving with the Picts) (nosemanny) | 9086 comments Looks fun! Do we get bonus points for drawing our characters too?

Sorry Jud but I've never schmagged in my life, but I suppose there's always a first time.

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments Oh go on Steve - you'd be so good at it!

I might do one on advice to sons-in-law!


Rosemary (grooving with the Picts) (nosemanny) | 9086 comments I've submitted mine! *smug*


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments Rosemary wrote: "I've submitted mine! *smug*"

So yours is Miss Smug then?


Rosemary (grooving with the Picts) (nosemanny) | 9086 comments Little Miss Smartarse!


message 12: by Mago (new)

Mago (Mark) | 1750 comments Any chance of making it 300 words, Jud?
I'm struggling!


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Hmm, never read little Miss books and my Mr Men knowledge is sparse. Looks like they am heading for nil points again.


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments So I try to download of Mr Happy and it says I'm not allowed because my software needs updating. Thanks. My technology isn't sufficient to allow me to read Mr bloody happy.


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments And when I searched mister men on my kindle on the Kindle store it offered "Masturbate with me" on page 2. Honest.


Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments What kind of story are you going to come up with after that??

Thanks for the laugh, Simon. I just had to check it out and what a fine collection of literature it suggests!


message 18: by Nicola (new)

Nicola Palmer | 255 comments I don't remember a Mister Man story about that. Although Mr Tickle had arms long enough to reach in to other people's houses ...

Now there's the basis of a truly disturbing children's story.

Thanks. I just spat coffee on the keyboard.

message 29: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Hill | 1603 comments Had an idea for this now so I will get writing!


message 30: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments Oh good-oh. I always enjoy the fact that the stories are so different, even with the same prompt.


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments I still don't know what Mr Men book style is. Perhaps I should just blag it. I can't do worse than usual.


message 32: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments You mean you don't ALWAYS blag it?


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Spooky. That is exactly where I was looking. It won't let me have a sample though and it was impossible to read on my mobile. Now on a proper computer so will have another look....


message 35: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Hill | 1603 comments Submitted my entry :)


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Hmm, I'm not sure about that Mr Tickle....

"Very long arms are useful in bed" Really?


message 37: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments I've always found it so be the case. Oh! I've said too much!


message 38: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Hill | 1603 comments Simon, stop tainting the Mr Men books! ;)


message 39: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments Is he tainting your childhood memories Jonathan?


message 40: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Hill | 1603 comments Yes, Ignite! Next he'll be saying that Mr Nosey has a large nose for snorting large quantities of drugs...oh, there goes another innocent character!


message 41: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments I 'knew' - not in the biblical sense, as they say - most of the Mr Men from reading them to my kids. The Little Misses passed me by. I think my 2 granddaughters have turned into Little Misses though!


message 42: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Hill | 1603 comments We have a Mr Bump radio in our kitchen, so there! ;)


message 43: by Kath (last edited Mar 23, 2013 06:35AM) (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments My husband has a Mrs Noisy Wife! So there!
Oh.


message 44: by Jonathan (new)

Jonathan Hill | 1603 comments Your husband's not being unfaithful to you then, is he, Little Miss Quiet?


message 45: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments Haha! If he could get a word in, he might!


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Mine entry is in. Last place secured I should think!


message 47: by Kath (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments Mr Self-Doubt eh?


Simon (Highwayman) (highwayman) | 4698 comments Ha....

I always think my entry is brilliant. I just assume the group isn't ready for me yet.


message 49: by Kath (last edited Mar 23, 2013 06:48AM) (new)

Kath Middleton | 25063 comments That's my boy. You're an innovator!

Edit - shouldn't type with one hand while I'm lying down on a recliner!


message 50: by TonyQ (new)

TonyQ (TonytheQ) | 206 comments Jonathan wrote: "Simon, stop tainting the Mr Men books! ;)"

I wouldn't just blame Simon - I bet some of the entries will make Mr Hargreaves blush violently!!
