I thought 'slip away from foorball riots' was an odd one!

I'm not a football fan either but I could score a village cricket match.

Noticed they haven't got drive a car and change the wheel and although they mention dinner parties there's no mention of basics such as baking bread for example.

To lead a better ISH life you might include being able to identify edible wild plants.

I can possibly do about 17 of the 39. Is that ok? :scratch:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

I've got 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18-23, 25, 27, 30, 31, 33, 35, 38, 39, and 32--as long as I can use games rather than "magic" and telling stories. The rest of them, for me at least, is just rubbish...in fact the architecture one is usless to me also, but I had to study some of that in drafting class at school,...plus,...I know what I like!

We could probably all identify a specific skill-set relevant to our lives and circumstances. Mine would have to include keeping your feet on a crowded london bus and keeping your patience on the underground!

or refer to number 25

I tendedto lose count of the part answers as well so gave up and then there are the ones such as the dancing one, sure I could dance to all the music listed but every dance would look the same.

I think I can manage 9 of those...isn't Country Life that magazine that has a cover full of promise but once you open it up and look inside you find yourself staring at pages of useless twaddle and articles trying to flog you "must have" items for your home and garden that cost stupidly large amounts of money... :pukeright:

I am a paragon of mediocrity according to that!

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.
