    Drama lessons

    I enjoyed Drama lessons quite a bit - it was a chance to express oneself and be what one wanted to be; a sort of Let's Pretend for 11 to 16 year olds. So much so that I even attended a Saturday...

    Re: English Villages

    It used to frustrate me when I used to live under Nottingham City Council as they had no rural areas and only had urban areas, and when it became a unitary authority in 1998 it was like scraping the...

    Re: Lion king

    There was a mondegreen at the start of the original Lion King film which sounds as if the former Arsenal manager's name is sung in the lyrics.

    Re: English Villages

    I have always wanted to live in a village myself - as the council I now live under have a few of them within their patch, I suppose that it would make it a bit easier to move to somewhere like that...

    I wonder whether Arsene Wenger will get an honorable mention?

    Re: RIP Denise Nickerson

    By the way, I used to find it humorous that her name sounded rather like "Denise Knickers On!"

    On a tangent, I read in the news yesterday about Verruca Salt's prop Wonka Bar and Golden Ticket (the...

    Re: The Crying Boy painting

    I probably was back then - all these coincidental fires seemed a bit too much, and I was seven years old at the time.

    Re: Family get togethers

    Yes, I know that dating shows are ways of ridiculing people as you said, but on the other hand, I feel that the more people know about my problem, the more people can help me. For example, I believe...

    The Crying Boy painting

    I refer to the very depressing portrait of a young male child in tears which brought even more depressing consequences to the many homes around the country where it had hung on living room walls,...

    Re: PE and towels, soap etc

    That school sounds like a hotel to be honest, supplying towels and soap. My school wasn't like that, probably because the pupils didn't really want to use towels that others had used - think of PE...

    Re: Family get togethers

    Also, various factors in my life have attributed to the fact that I haven't found a partner apart from platonic relationships - for example, being bullied at school in the early 1990s which made me...

    Re: Family get togethers

    Thanks for the positive comment HG - the problem is that I almost see everyone as stereotypes as each other - you know, married at 17, family of their own by 19, becoming grandparents by 40. I have...

    Re: Family get togethers

    In many ways I often make this more than apparent so that people can understand - it is good that you have picked up on this Tex because I can explain in a bit more detail. I would rather write about...

    Re: Family get togethers

    Regarding weddings - I actually come from a small family and so not many weddings in the recent past. In fact, I haven't been to a family wedding since the early 1990s and whether I will ever attend...

    Re: Family get togethers

    I don't really get together with my family very often these days - Christmas time and that's it. I would like to start a family of my own one day, but now I am in my 40s, the clock is ticking and I...

    Re: RIP Denise Nickerson

    Sad news - is she the first of the Chocolate Factory kids to pass away? There doesn't seem to be a Wikipedia page for the actor who played Augustus Gloop so I wouldn't know. Did she really have...

    Re: RIP Freddie Jones

    Great character actor - had played some eccentric roles. I saw him in a children's film where he was brilliant in character.

    Re: Women's Football

    It is nice to see that something women can participate in unironically instead of the token things that people think women do such as modelling or cleaning.

    Just proves that we are a few steps...

    Re: School Punishment

    I think that was the classic standard for PE teachers - either that or the plimsoll. An odd one never a pair.

    By the way, welcome to the forum, Debbie.

    Women's Football

    We have just had the women's world cup which reached its finale last weekend - the USA winning, although England did better than I expected. I was wondering whether 2019 would be the 1966 of women's...
