Replying to a meme - part 2  
monkey_matt wanted to know why I hadn't blogged about our awesome Calcutta Cup* victory on 8th March.

well, the fact of the matter is... I didn't see it.

I know, I'm such a bad fan...

Sorry!

But yay! We won! And it was all down to my boy Chris's mad kicking skillz! Woo and indeed hoo!

(next year, I swear, I will be watching - and the year after that I plan to be in the stands at Murrayfield with my eldest nephew and niece.)

*Calcutta Cup (for those of you who aren't rugby fans) is the annual match between Scotland and England as part of the RBS Six Nations tournament.

Also? Bidding is open!

ETA I'm coughing again today, I thought it was because Monkey was trying to kill me by speeding up the hill (I'm so unfit...) but it's nearly an hour later and I'm still phlegmy. That's an awesome word. It should be used more in everyday conversation.

Yay!

Phlegmatic. Also a good word. But of Phlegmatic is to Phlegm, then surely so would dogmatic be to dog...

And that's just plain unkind.
Ah yes, quite a bunch of us, isn't it?unhobbityhobbit on March 20th, 2008 09:47 am (UTC)
Phlegmatic sounds like a machine that makes phlegs.

Only if you follow it with a number. Like the Gruntmaster 6000. It's basically a stripped down version of the Gruntmaster 9000, but it's software upgradeable.

See now I have the image of a rather post East Coast of Scotland accent mis-saying 'flag' as 'phleg' in my head.

*grins*

It announces it discreetly, with a barely discernible throatclear, reminiscent of the finest kind of butler.

Don't blame me for people talking about phlegm.

You brought it up.

I have been staring at that sentence for so long. was the "post" meant to be "posh"? Otherwise I have no idea what accent you mean.

Unfortunately it was the only game out of the five we played that we did win - but it was the big one against England so that counts double!

:( but just think of the reasons why you wont be around to bid. *is so jealous*

I really wish I had something witty to say here. I think I came in with something to do with bah phlegm bah — then read yours, Monkey's and Ruth's convo and as a result I've got this laugh/hacking cough hybrid happening!
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: text//twelve of those - mewhiskyinmind on March 20th, 2008 07:05 pm (UTC)
*grins*

Yay for making you laugh! Boo for making you cough!

(Also - yay for school/uni holidays!)
angelnetgirl: LOLangelnetgirl on March 20th, 2008 09:37 pm (UTC)
I have nothing to add to this post, apart from I like the word phlegmy :D

And I am jealous of you and Wench and you mammoth (slighty crazy) Steve/Jason journey!
