Something For The Weekend

September 7, 2008

I’m an awful person. I never made it to the Fringe Launch last night. At 9.30pm I texted Katie with something along the lines of:

‘Super sorry but I can’t make it out. Was at a party til 11am this morning, then went straight to work. May puke if I don’t go to bed a.s.a.p. Apologies again. Kisses.’

I think Katie went though, and I hope she had a charming time. To make up for my dreadfulness though, I’ve made a QUIZ! Scroll down for the answers, but NO GOOGLING ALLOWED.

    At home I have the Smash Hits featured in your pic, but I’m afraid I didn’t fare very well in your quiz, you’re clearly a generation after me – I stopped buying Smash Hits in early 1993, a year after its relaunch (which I didn’t like). I bought it sporadically after that so have a few isshes right through to the bitter end.

    And if I may make a very slight correction, it’s actaully Paul Fab Macca Wacky Thumbs Aloft McCartney.

    I’ve been meaning to post up a few bits out of Smash Hits actually, so I’ll get onto that in a bit. In the meantime here’s a Smash Hits question for you…

    Q: Have you any good fishing tips?
