It brings a bit of sick up into my mouth.
and I get shit like
"Coincidentalty, Mrs Fowler's grand-daughter Gemma Hudson, aged 10, won the Sue Latham Comedy Cup at the Bristol Dance Eisteddfod.
The cup is given for the best character comedy performance of the week-long event which was held at Backwell School and is usually won by older competitors."
The headline is "Winning Runs
In The Family".
The only mention of winning, other than Daphne herself, is this granddaughter thing.
A) That's not coincidental
B) That barely counts as 'winning'. If that's the closest anyone else in her family has gotten to winning, well... it hardly 'runs in the family'.
They have Eggheads in Belgium?
OMG, no tv licensesscceee.
Coming over here, stealing our telly quiz shows...

to have that as my new desktop
She had bright red eyes, just reinforcing my instinct that she's actually some kind of witch.
No human smiles that much, with such soullessness.
"Most of my blouses come either from Eastex or Marks and Spencer. I do buy a few tops, mainly cardigans from catalogues although quite often I’m disappointed when the colour turns out to be nothing like the photograph. Anyone else have the same problem?"

I didn't realise people as boring as her still existed.
I thought they were all killed off.
I thought all everyone's grandmothers did was buy blouses from M&S.
Mine just spends her days insulting Fianna Fail and Des Lynam, scouring newspapers for typos and sending them angry letters, juggling and making tea.
She could easily take Daphne Fowler in a fight.
your granny must be pretty limber
Daphne Fowler (née Bradshaw, also formerly known as Daphne Hudson, born 1939 (age 68–69)) in Warwick, Warwickshire, England)'s website links to this website http://www.12yard.com/quiz/ which looks like the best thing ever.
I hadn't discovered this before.
That website looks too scary to log in. I am terrified Chris's massive head will appear and talk directly to me.
Practise for the audition!
I am playing Kevin Ashman and losing, badly.
No circus skills :(
The only thing I seem to have inherited from my Granny is her weirdly double-jointed thumbs. Pathetic.
and her hatred of Des Lynam, obvz.
I have double-jointed knees. It's impressive/hideous.
Chris is going down.
His victory message is actually the smuggest thing I've ever heard in my life.
How the hell do double-jointed knees work? That sounds more impressive than hideous.
It keeps throwing in something unknowable so he can laugh at how terrible I am. grrr
Double-jointedness is just absurd flexibility so my knees and thus lower legs can face sideways and sort of turn back on themselves. Hard to explain. It only gets wheeled out upon request when I am suggestible (drunk) enough. It looks unpleasant.
I wish mine did that.
She spends her days either buying beige-flavoure blouses from M&S, and when she's not in M&S she just talks about how much she loves M&S.
Occasionally she plays bridge.
