I phrase that I often heard was postprandial somnambulism.

Nowadays, with reference to myself, this has turned into a daily SCAN

I sent two photos to a friend, one before and one after the garden flooded. I used the word "antediluvium" to describe the second one.

On a lunch outing with friends today, whilst I was enjoying a post prandial glass of Lemonade (I don't drink and drive), the conversation turned to films we have enjoyed over the years.

After much thought I decided my all-time favourite actor has to be Morgan Freeman, and best film of the many thousands I have watched has to be "The Shawshank Redemption"

Not quite sure if this applies.....was meandering,(as you do) through some really old threads and came across this old post of mine from 2007....

was on a phantom nudger thread....

TESTICULATING. Waving your arms around and talking Codswallop. BLAMESTORMING. Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible. SEAGULL MANAGER. A manager, who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and then leaves. ASSMOSIS. The process by which people seem to absorb success and advancement by sucking up to the boss rather than working hard. SALMON DAY. The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get screwed and die. CUBE FARM. An office filled with cubicles. PRAIRIE DOGGING. When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people's heads pop up over the walls to see that's going on. (This also applies to applause for a promotion because there may be cake.) SITCOMs. Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What yuppies turn into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids or start a 'home business'. SINBAD. Single working girls. Single income, no boyfriend and desperate. STRESS PUPPY. A person who seems to thrive on being stressed out and whiny. PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE. The fine art of whacking the crap out of an electronic device to get it to work again. ADMINISPHERE. The rarefied organisational layers beginning just above the rank and file. Decisions that fall from the 'adminisphere' are often profoundly inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve. This is often affiliated with the dreaded 'administrivia' - needless paperwork and processes. 404. Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message '404 Not Found,' meaning that the requested document could not be located. OHNOSECOND. That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you've just made a BIG mistake (e.g. you've hit 'reply all') GOING FOR A McPOO. Entering a fast food restaurant with no intention of buying food, you're just going to the bog. If challenged by a pimply staff member, your declaration to them that you'll buy their food afterwards is known as a McPOO with Lies. AEROPLANE BLONDE. One who has bleached/dyed her hair but still has a 'black box'. AUSSIE KISS. Similar to a French Kiss, but given down under. BEER COAT. The invisible but warm coat worn when walking home after a booze cruise at 3am. BEER COMPASS. The invisible device that ensures your safe arrival home after booze cruise, even though you're too drunk to remember where you live, how you got here, and where you've come from. GREYHOUND. A very short skirt, only an inch from the hare. MILLENNIUM DOMES. The contents of a Wonderbra, i.e. extremely impressive when viewed from the outside, but there's actually naught in there worth seeing. MONKEY BATH . A bath so hot, that when lowering yourself in, you go:'Oo!Oo!Oo! Aa!Aa!Aa!'. MYSTERY BUS. The bus that arrives at the pub on Friday night while you're in the toilet after your 10th pint, and whisks away all the unattractive people so the pub is suddenly packed with stunners when you come back in. MYSTERY TAXI. The taxi that arrives at your place on Saturday morning before you wake up, whisks away the stunner you slept with, and leaves a 10-Pinter in your bed instead. PICASSO BUM. A woman whose knickers are too small for her, so she looks like she's got four buttocks SALAD DODGER. An excellent phrase for an overweight person SWAMP-DONKEY A deeply unattractive person TART FUEL. Bottled premixed spirits, regularly consumed by young women Anon!!! That better?
