One of the papers asks whether you are a “trend refusenik”.

If I am – fine. Bloody well hope so. By design – and on purpose.

Trends leave me cold. So, no I have never shopped in ‘Baby Gap’. I have never been a ‘member of a  book group’ (I find that thought depressing). I have never ‘been on a diet’. I have never ‘owned a product made by Apple’ (which reflects more on me and my funds than Apple). I have never been ‘on Facebook’ (where do people get the time from – not to mention Twitter). I never use ‘text speak’, mainly because it takes me longer to work out abbreviations than just going the traditional spelling route. I have never ‘bought anything from Starbucks’, partly because I don’t drink coffee and even when I do their combos are too complicated for me. Bringing me out in a fluster of choice paralysis. Neither have I ever worn Uggs. Though I spied one pair which just about passes muster, is quite elegant and people would be pushed to recognize it as an Ugg.

My score being that I am asked to count how many friends I have. How that is related to the number of cans of tinned food on my shelf is beyond me. I do have a jar of anchovies (in olive oil). Please do feel free to squeeze in there. I won’t mash you to a pulp. Just bring a tin of tomatoes and some penne and we’ll talk whilst I make a divine pasta sauce.


PS I understand that Burgundy has lost currency this autumn. Cheers.



  1. I like Facebook. U (you) reminded me & I went there. A granddaughter in Sweden put up a new profile pic. I told her to put a bag over her head when she goes out. She’s too beautiful to be been in public. (She’s 16) Someone will kidnap her or do something else bad–if she gets my drift. I never knew what people said (in Swedish) but now there’s translations, so bad they make me laugh.
