Oooh fairy floss, I like that. Kind of like fairy cakes, as you brits call them? I call it candy floss, apparently an odd term here in the US, as people looked at me like I had three eyes when I called it that!

You hadn't been applying your lipstick after drinking (again) had you? LOL

Which, for no apparent reason, reminds me of the time my mother grabbed what she thought was a can of deoderant -- and sprayed liquid starch under her armpits -- it was a bit of a task to finagle here through doors with her arms stuck out like that, let me tell you...

Max: Or you could just have had her twirl around and explain she was practicing for swan lake :)

I saw the picture of you posted of yourself and was very glad that you weren't a little more to the left or people might of thought that you were taking about the picture to the left of yours. :)

Of course, you realize that all great minds are considered to be freaks of nature (which, of course, is why I thought it would apply.  That should be obvious )
