That's probably a good thing. Pure sugar and other stuff that's probably (definitely) not so good for you... but they're terribly more-ish. These are the best (if you can't get whole back of sour cherries, that is...):

I know what Haribo is, it is the odd inclusions of the word "too" in the original post that has me flummoxed. I've tried reading it out loud, but it sounds like glossolalia to me.

Ah. Really? Someone with your word-trickery abilities?


I have too many packets of Haribo. That's probably better. Haribo is most likely a non-count noun, come to think of it.

I am declined to agree with you, there is no trick to me.


The plural might be Haribi though.

Might we then also say that a complete deficit of them would be a Haribum?




edit: Silly me, "Haribum" is the result of prolonged consumption of Haribi.

Not sure - it sounds too cheerful - like emporium.


Then again... moratorium. Hmm. I'm probably going to give that more thought than it really needs!

Am. System takes a while. Peak time!


Plus am female, therefore adept at multi-tasking.

I can multitask too,


I have known myself to know the answer and still be wrong.
Sleep and snore simultaneously.
Think, while being unthinking.


This very moment I am lying on a sofa, wearing a foil hat, watching TV, masticating, trying to recover my vestigial English, while declining multiple friend requests from wealthy, intelligent, and attractive women on Facebook.








ok.... one of the above is not strictly true.

I can't get all the felt pen off my daughter's hands. On the plus side, I got it off the dog, who is now rolling in the grass in the dark to get rid of the smell of baby wipes.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I clicked on the 'More Smilies Options' link in the reply-to-post window and the pop-up didn't automatically optimise in my screen, so I had to do it manually by moving my cursor and clicking on the Maximise icon which kinda sucked THEN I had to Close the pop-up by scrolling my cursor to the bottom of the screen and click again. Can hardly be bothered.

Special reserved parking bays for women, Smart cars, the disabled and now electric cars.
So where am I supposed to park my evil, fossil fuel burning POS

Re: The First World Problem Thread

On the train to work this morning got aboard the first 1st class car I saw.

It was virtually empty.

then I saw there was a sign that due to shortage of second class cars, people with sceond class tickets may sit her.

I decided to get up and walk to the next car.

Whatever is Switzerland coming to these days?
