Arrangements could be made . . . although who it happens to could be a matter for some debate . . .

Nominations anyone?

No. Manchester 1996 was custard. Liverpool 1998 was tapioca. Totally different.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

If dunking in some form of pudding-filled paddling pool is on the agenda for the unofficial not-Hogswatch gathering, is there any chance of strawberry mousse or possibly melted ice-cream** ? I can't stand tapioca or custard and as for **shudders** blancmange that word is right up there with 'moist', 'puce', 'gusset' and 'secretions' for the YUUuuueeeeecchhhh factor, as far as I am concerned !! :twisted: :mrgreen:


**raspberry ripple or Ben & Jerry's strawberry cheesecake for preference :wink:
