Madder and badder than the 15th

None of that poncy rubbish
Are you tired of those noncy friendship poems that sound good, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true mateship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces in this chain-email - just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.
1. When you are sad - I will help you get drunk and plot revenge against  the bastard(s) who made you sad.
2. When you are blue - I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
3. When you smile - I will know you finally got laid.
4. When you are scared - I will rip the piss about it every chance I get.
5. When you are worried - I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be until you shut the hell up .
6. When you are confused - I will use little words.
7. When you are sick -  Stay the hell away from me until you are well  again. I don't want whatever you have.
8. When you fall - I will point and laugh at you - silly bugger.
9. This is my oath... I pledge it to the end. "Why?" you may ask;
"because you are my friend".
Mateship is like weeing your pants,
everyone can see it,
But only you can feel the true warmth.
Send this to ten of your closest friends,
then get depressed because you can only think  of four

I hate Memes

Thanks Foilest for this little challenge...
I appreciate the intent and thought, and the Esprit de Corps I just, just, oh I don't know... bah humbug!

1. Seven Things About Me That May Surprise You

1) I like music like The Spice Girls, my favourite is Baby Spice and to demonstrate it's not just a one off I also like B*witched
2) I've eaten KFC in the past week (palm oil and all... "Palm oil is one of the few vegetable oils relatively high in saturated fats (such as coconut oil) and thus semi-solid at room temperature.")
3) I also like broccoli
4) I don't like beer (that's it I'm out of the blokes club!)
5) I pick my nose when you aren’t looking.
6) In the A(distinction) B(credit) C(pass) D(borderline pass) U(unsatisfactory) scale, I got a D in English in year 11 (16 yo), and
I think I only got that because I got As and B+s in everything else. (Just don't tell me that this is so obvious from my prose)
7) I have been sacked from a job for unconscionable conduct

2. List out your top 5 favourite places to eat at your location
Maybe it should be specified pre-kids, with kids or post-kids?
Mind you doctors do get to have cushy dinners paid for by pharmaceutical companies for "educational" events.
1) Duthy Thai (although it has changed hands since it's hey-day when they knew me by the sound of my voice when I phoned)
2) Chloe's (very orthodox international cuisine, but consistent, lovely mansion with several rooms)
3) Russell's Pizza, Friday nights only, always something radical...
4) Cafe Violetta (vegetarian Sicillian food) - alas no more...
5) Home, the Boss is a damn fine cook....

3. Tag 5 other people...
instead I thought I might list...
