  1. I really, really like number 5! I’ll have to find ways to use that phrase in real life… Tiddley-hoy!

    mwaahaahaahaahaaaaa!

    I would also like to submit, for your approval, a variation on number 2:

    “Tickle tackle”

    Ciao for now!
    Happy TT!

  11. Okay, that does it. Your writing job is cooler than MY writing job. (I’m trying to sneak out to see the Michael Jackson movie. Doesn’t look promising and I’m bummed.)


  12. Yvette – guess what I’m going to think of every time I watch The Unit now? :mrgreen:


  13. Susan – it has its moments. I hope you get to that movie.
