Now Jeanie totally confused as to who you are
Prunella Deville and the 101 Dalmatians springs to mind
but imagine that must be way of mark?


Tabitha Report 29 May 2010 21:21

Jeanie - fancy having the same initials as me (real name that is)

Well done Cynthia - I think Josie got me on the first clue - which as a bit of a surprise

Who are we missing?

Josie - how much have you had to drink - its Cruella Devill

You need to go a bit further back in history for Jeanie - I believe her OH is about to get rid of her - unless I am way off the mark - I beleive you once lived at Hever Castle in Kent


Kiwibird Report 29 May 2010 21:24

Sorry Anne I must confess
I Googled Pamphlets + Cosmetics+Alchemy and up you came.


Tabitha Report 29 May 2010 21:26

Good thinking - KB - I won't get my fig basket out as I hate snakes

Is it true there are none in NZ? If so I want to move there


Kiwibird Report 29 May 2010 21:31

You are probably right Anne champagne for breakfast on an empty stomach except for one Lamington has left me a little light headed.

I t's 8.25am Sunday morning, here imagine that a our Sue is still fast asleep as it is only 6.25am in OZ.

But from her clues suspect she is Nostradamus.


Cynthia Report 29 May 2010 21:32

Oooooh didn't get that one! Well done Josie.


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 21:34

Well, sorry folks. I was trying to be a little obscure to get you all going.

Naughty girl - got pregnant before she married.

Heave - err (Hever Castle)

She had two pet dogs with those unusual names (pictured with one of them sitting on her lap)

Born in Blickling Hall (I think) in Norfolk.

Red-headed daughter - Elizabeth I

Rumoured to have an extra finger.

Tried not to lose my head - but I did when he went off with Jane Seymour.

Ann Boleyn - as Evelyn worked out.


Working out the clues this morning I found Cleopatra, Empress Josephine, Nell Gwynne and I think Michelangelo??? Think I've forgotten who was who.

Where is Sylvia?? Was expecting to see her here when I got back.

You've obviously been enjoying yourselves while I've been away.



Tabitha Report 29 May 2010 21:35

Have to admit - I worked out Sues - as I have only just been reading about him

Very clever Robert - but the red outfit gave you away - You are Sebastian arn't you.

Nothing like pinching another person initials eh Jeanie - Same as mine - I am AB - always had a thing about Anne & Henry VIII - one of my OH's ancestors had a lot to do with Elizabeth I & her sister Mary

Well I am off to the quiet room for a bit of a chill - help yourself to Breakfast muffins KB - lots of Bacon & sausages on the barbie have a good tuck in.

See you all tomorrow


Kiwibird Report 29 May 2010 21:35

Anne can quarentee you, we have no Snakes poison or otherwise and only one poisonous spider who lives in a tiny isolated area of the country.


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 21:37

Thanks for that - Nostradamus. That's the name I was trying to bring to mind. Perhaps Michel sent me off on the wrong track.


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 21:50

Just had to look back over the confessions! Really didn't have a clue about you Cynthia. Did find one person who looked slightly promising but it wasn't the Scarlet Pimpernel.


Evelyn Report 29 May 2010 21:58

Well I dont know what I am going to do now as I have missed the last plane to Guernsey. Guess I will look for a local B & B or Hotel and book in for the night, O H wont be very happy but it will do him good to look after himself for once.
Are there any shops open at this time of night I want to buy a nightie and a change of underwear also some toiletries, I didnt expect to be staying the night so am not very well prepared, I suppose I could get a train to Beaconsfield and stay with my daughter.
I wont need supper I have eaten enough for 6 people today and thank you all I have had a wonderful day, thanks especially to you Cynthia you certainly know how to entertain people, no wonder everyone loves you.
Goodnight everyone


Dozey Report 29 May 2010 22:04

Watch your language Evelyn. I thought we were not supposed to mention night attire on this thread so as not to get whooshed!

Hope you find a nice place to stay.

I'll second that Cynthia. It has been most entertaining. Think I too will have to say goodnight now. Really disappointed SylviaIC hasn't been able to join us. Hope we hear from her soon.

Nightie, night. Oooops.



Kiwibird Report 29 May 2010 22:08

I t would appear you and I Jean are the only one's still standing.
Venerable Robert must have fallen asleep in his shell hours ago.

And poor old Anne was up at the crack of dawn so has probably fallen asleep along with the Birthday Girl.

And I know dear old Evelyn would have been in her bed hours ago.

Sylvia and Frank sad that you couldn't join us,
have saved some food and Champers for you,
There is still some Pavlova ,but the Lamingtons all went.

I have woken up now so will go and make myself some breakfast.
Thank you Cynthia, for a wonderful party will have to do it again next year.

Good night and sweet dreams to the rest of you.

Catch you all later. Josie


Evelyn Report 29 May 2010 22:08

OOh sorry everyone


Cynthia Report 29 May 2010 22:16

Evelyn, please, take my spare room, it will be a pleasure to have you stay.

Thank you everyone for making this such a special day. You're a great bunch.


Cynthia Report 29 May 2010 22:19

I will wait a little longer just in case Sylvia arrives. Cx


SylviaInCanada Report 29 May 2010 22:53

puff puff puff

here I am

I am sooooo sorry to be so late. But I see that you have all had a good time, sleeping bodies all over the place!!

So Cynthia's birthday was suitably celebrated.

I'm late because I had to swim ..... the pilot of the plane decided to land on the water in Morecambe Bay. I really don't know what she was thinking ..... but someone on board did have a very stinky cheese

I brought a tray of Nanaimo Bars, so I'll just leave it on the side table and C and whoever is sleeeping here for the night can eat them tomorrow.

I'll take a piece of the Pav, I looooooooooove Pav, and can only eat them in my imagination

and Nellie Letitia McClung says farewell

tip toes away so I won't wake up the sleeping beauties.



Kiwibird Report 30 May 2010 04:58

Snuck back for some leftovers
Feeling a little peckish .


Dozey Report 30 May 2010 08:51

Well, good morning to anyone who is still about after all yesterday's excitement. Glad to see SylviaIC did eventually make the party. Glad you managed to climb out Sylv.

I had a heart stopping moment once at Morecambe Bay but as it involved a dog better shut up. Think I go on too much about them.

Regarding my comment about drug taking before the party started wondered if my son was right. Have used that handy little tool Google this morning:-

"Just Like a Pill" was written by P!nk with the help of Dallas Austin, who also produced and did the musical arrangement for the song.[2] Pink said in an interview that "Just Like a Pill" shows "part of who I am", referring to her documented problems with drugs[3]

The song was generally well received by contemporary music critics. NME called it "the third best track off her killer last album".[4] Drowned In Sound's Robert Luckett commented that it is "a fascinating record...this is a record with a edge, a kind of pot boiling over at any moment, ready to go off at any time vibe." He also wrote "it obeys the Pop Industry's well dusted rules for a hit."[5] Stylus Magazine's Todd Burns, in his review of the album, compared "Just Like a Pill" to the other singles from the album, "Don't Let Me Get Me" and "Get the Party Started" ................

Must now go and do what I ought to have gone and done yesterday.

Catch you later.
