I'm a little bored so thought I'd start a whimsy thread.
  • I love books, but not overly keen on reading*.
  • I'm possessive of language; it's not "barm" and it's not "zucchini".
Anyone else a bit odd?!




(*it seems a hindle is the opposite to a Kindle...)

So what do you like about books, is it a paper fetish?

Barm is perfectly fine. Bit rich a Yorkie moaning about misuse of language ;)

I'm incredibly pedantic about typeset. I really winds me up when people don't take care over the look of a document.

I am not a member of CAMRA but I am evangelical about real ale and micro breweries.

In the words of Groucho Marx, I don't want to be a member of a club that will have the likes of me as a member.

I hate work but love being paid.

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

Cook books, reference books things like that, but I also like the look of big thick hardbacks... (oo-er, maybe you're on to something there!) Can't really explain, hence the oddity, if I had the time and ability to stay awake to read for hours on end it would make perfect sense.

I worked in Oxford and really like the place but I support Cambridge in the Varsity match.

Supporting Cambridge isn't a quirk; it's a recognition of natural superiority over Oxford. ;)

I absolutely hate eating mushrooms - but I love mushroom soup and creamed mushrooms out of a tin.

Love creamed mushrooms on toast. Whenever I've told anyone about this they think it's incredibly strange. Maybe it is...?

Ever since I had my first turntable, I've almost always played the 'B' side of a new record before the 'A' side. That goes for singles and albums.

I have never liked a corn beef butty but do like corn beef hash, as well as corn beef and tomato baked in dough. I like a peach but not tinned peaches. My wife loves baked beans but in a dish when having a cooked breakfast. She just cannot stand having baked beans on the same plate.

Dislike all nuts, but love anything with Marzipan and also drinking Amaretto when the mood takes.
