A bit of fun and some romance

I've just read this great meme on Natasha's blog and had to play! I think a few of us could do with a laugh right now - why not have a go too?

I have to say, Natasha's names were much more exotic than mine :-)

Your Real Name: Lesley

Witness Protection Name:(mother and fathers middle names) Patricia John.

Secret Spy Name: (your first name spelled backwards) Yelsel

Nascar Name: (first name of your mother's dad, father's dad) Frederick John

Detective Name:(favorite color, favorite animal) Turquoise Otter ( ??).

Soap Opera Name:(middle name, county where you were born) Jane West Midlands (classy!).

Super Hero Name: (2nd fav color, fav drink, add "THE" to the beginning) The Pink Chardonnay.

Fly Name:(first 2 letters of 1st name, last 2 letters of your last name) Lece (er, what is a fly name?)

Street Name:(fav ice cream flavor, fav cookie) Ginger Lemon Puff (ha haaa!).

Rock Star: (current pet, current street) Meg Rosoman (liking that one!)

Porn Name: (1st pet, street you grew up on) Gretel Wheeler (mmmm...)

Your Gansta Name:(first 3 letters of real name plus izzle) Lesizzle (ooh scary gangsta!)

Your Goth Name:(black, and the name of one of your pets) Black Lightning (oh yeah!!)

Stripper Name: (name of your fav perfume/cologne, fav. candy) Ghost Minstrels (!!)

Ahem....think I like my rock star name best!

In other news, I received this gorgeous parcel of sparkly loveliness yesterday.

Emmapebble and I decided to do an unoffical swapsee. She got warm wrists and to look like Steptoe, while I got these divine jewels, to match the beautiful bracelet she gave to me at our big bloggy meet up last year - great swap Emma.....well, we never said it was going to be fair!!!

Now onto the romantic goings on in Moogshouse.

As you may have noticed, yesterday was St Valentine's Day and the shops were full of cute cuddly toys, beautiful red roses and romantically packaged yummy chocolates.

Being a practical sort of a man, Moogsdad wasn't going to fritter away his hard earned pounds on such trifles.

Oh noooo....he went one (or several) better than that.

He bought me this:

In his defence, yer honour, he had just suffered a week of me bleating about needing a new compost bin to put my vegi peelings in...and a week of dinners involving as little vegetable matter as possible, so that I didn't have to throw the peelings in the bin!

Of course, I couldn't let such a loving gesture go by unacknowledged could I?

By way of a suitably romantic reciprocation, I totally indulged him and bought him this:

We really know how to spoil each other :-)

Before I go - look who we found, playing in the Action Man fort, during our big garden clear up yesterday.....

.....yay, it's Glastonbury Barbie!!!

One more thing - please go and visit Maria - she's hosting a great quilting project for the Bushfires Appeal.

Love xxxx

Maybe I will just call you The Pink Chardonnay from now on!

Ooooh those Valentine gifts guaranteed to get you all warm and fuzzy! Reminds me of the year my husband bought me windscreen wipers for Christmas! We don't talk about that Christmas anymore in this house.

take care

Yo Lesizzle! I love that meme - might have to give it a go at some point.

Love the romantic gifts you and your husband got each other - makes me feel a whole lot better about being a sad, lonely singleton :-p

Emma's jewellery is so beautiful - I have one of her necklaces and it ALWAYS gets admiring comments.


Lucy Locket-Pocket said...

Brilliant post Mrs Moog - you know how to keep us all entertained! Particularly loving Glastonbury Barbie!

Good gracious - that Barbie really is mucky - as you mentioned, perhaps it's an Amy Winehouse Barbie. Dirty girl.

Lesizzle - genius. I presume I'd be Emizzle. Shizzle my nizzle. My friend has a cat called Frazzle - she's not very hard though. Not really a gangsta cat.

Romance indeed! Ah, the sweet scent of slightly rotten veg. Perhaps a nice bunch of floppy celery instead of roses.

BTW Mrs M - ever heard of special comfrey soup for getting smiley veg and flowers? All you need is a comfrey plant. Harvest the leaves and put 'em in a bucket. The soup is v. stinky but the plants love it. Personally I'd prefer a spot of leek and potato but each to their own eh?

Glad you liked the sparkles


silverpebble said...

OOh, just remembered - rhubarb leaves make a good soup too - for killing bugs though - aphids and that, so I'm told. Also very very stinky

Me xx

silverpebble said...

Yes - I was concerned I was wibbling nonsense but it's true - it's the malic and oxalic acid or sommat.

I am going now, honest

wonderwoman said...

great post Lesley, i absolutely roared with laughter when i saw your valentine's present!!! just brilliant. and such gorgeous goodies from Emma!

ps, tried to teach myself to crochet - lets just say there was an awful lot of swearing!!!

Daisie said...

At least you got a valentine's gift!!!
The name thingie is so funny and I will be having a go later.
Love Glasto Barbie!

Gina said...

Ha ha... Ginger Lemon Puff it is! Love your romantic valentine gifts!

JuliaB said...

That's the best looking Barbie i've ever seen - I particularly like the wild hair look! Now why didn't I think of the incinerator thingy too.. Mr M wants one of those!

rachelmp said...

Still laughing! I like the goth name :) Great gifts too. I asked for tyres for the car for Christmas but my husband wouldn't buy them. ( I really wanted them ...) Love Glastonbury Barbie though x

monda-loves said...

great post Lesley - I laughed a lot - I especially like glasto-barbie - she really knows how to let her hair down doesn't she!


Ali said...

You old romantics! But a compost bin undoubtedly is the gift that just keeps on giving.

Glad to see the barbies at your house are not of the pink and pampered variety.

est said...

hahahhaha!!!what a 'thoughful' valentine's give! you two really a match in heaven!! :)

dottycookie said...

Oooh, I saw and admired the wristwarmers on Emma last week - and I have ione of her little rings too. Aren't they fab?

jellybelly*jellybrain said...

I'm liking those names - I will have to try that on my own blog!
The button on your sidebar does not take you to trashy's raffle by the way?

Marie said...

Great meme. I don't have a middle name though so I'm scuppered on most of those.

ROFLMAO @ Glastonbury Barbie!!


tintocktap said...

Think I recognise that Barbie - is she the one than ended up snogging Action Man after all their adventures? No, wait a minute, that was Sindy, courtesy of my brother and sister.

French Knots said...

Glad to see romance alive and well in the Moog household!!

maria said...

Hi, thanks for the mention about the bushfire quilt blog appeal.

Jodie said...

Who says romance is dead?

artisbliss said...

My goodness, what a revealing exercise.

Jane said...

The name meme made me smile, Lovely valentine's gifts too. Jane x
