btw did you know that Post Office Red and Home Office purple are actually legally registered colours?
How the heck can you register red as a 'legal' colour ??

P.S We have a mac in the office, most expensive paper weight ever!!!

I'm a bit worried that the Mothers are talking about computers.

Computers are generally for big mesters and only of use to women when they are doing online grocery shopping.

And for the obtaining of substances that can be mixed and brewed to poison annoying men ;o)

A bit like Pantone 154

sorry about that previous posting - don't know what came over me

Just think - if it wasn't for Microsoft, we wouldn't know each other. Or would we?

okay, back to the Cosmic Muffins - what are the ingredients? Need to make some more protection for the Space Shuttle (see cooking disasters thread)

Sorry girls
chefs choice "Cosmic Muffin" is off the menu this week because he couldn't get it to rise, need to think again about the ingredients before we go public.

Dear Mothers
Now I,ve grown into a Tiger Cub I suppose that means that I have to take on a bit of responsibility round here too. Are there any 'Mother' duties I can help with so that I can earn my keep as well as lurking in the forums.

Ah wonderful, a volunteer is worth a hundred conscripts. Naturally we have problems with Kinny. He needs watching. We take it in shifts. There used to be a kids tv programme named after it, you may have heard of it. Our bugging arm used to have a radio programme cover too. RedTiger needs occassional surveillance. Keep WELL clear of Gate. I think that is all I can tell you on this open forum. Good luck. Bit gutted about the cosmic muffin. Keep us informed.

Debbie - Safari. That's all I'm going to say. ;o)

Pantone 154 is kind of a sludgy brown? C35, M60, Y80, K20 I'd guess at. Oh this is FUN!

He he.

Last night I got out of bed again and went walkabouts. It was ages before matron found me. She was ever so cross, so I offered her a cosmic muffin.

What's good for black eyes?

Contact lenses.

Sorry CT, it wasn't 154, it was 172 I was thinking of! Used to be our corporate colour before I changed jobs (and can you blame me?)

Dear Mothers
Re- job interview

After searching all day Sunday I finally found the certificates in the loft, the Visual is still current but the Audio has lapsed, is this a requirement? I excelled in woodwork achieving distinction in the spotty dog studies and this helped enormously with later interviews for the Ministry of Silly Walks, I am proud to say this is still on the CV.

As you know I've been watching for a while, this is the latest report -

Kinny - recently seen quoting poetry! is there anything in the rumour that Tiggy's Bar has been serving pan-galactic gargle blasters after hours?
RedTiger - not a lot of activity but have made a visual
Gate - wouldn't want to approach this one due to smell

I have to advise that in order to get pass for Special Ops this coming Sunday at HQ I may not be available for full time surveillance duties this week. Will do what I can. :oD

CT - I washed my hair at the weekend with PantoneProV154 but I didn't like the smell, are there any others I can try?

Debs - 172 truly vile, have just looked it up. Well done for leaving. That's the kind of colour only to be used by emergency services. Sparingly.

My little tiger lily, you have been working hard. :lol: I would steer clear of the Pantones for hair washing. You can change colour quite dramatically. Though Rizzo uses them quite a bit I'm told. Excellent for under cover work though. Karen will be undercover over the weekend too, you can pick up many things from her. See if you can meet up. She'll be wearing a gold and black shirt, tigers hat and confused expression. Easy to spot.

Ladies, I don't mind being under surveillance. In a strange way it's almost flattering.

But it's a two way thing, you know.

TigerLily, that blouse you were wearing really enhanced your figure. Well done.
