well... it's all over,red rover

It's official, then.  As J.Argent of Gawler,SA said in the Australian Women's Weekly in July 2005...


Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fibre, not for the toy .


Dash it all,then. BUT what about those of us who are goodies fans and will  buy a whole box of Plastic Spacemen just to get that one cornflake out of the bottom of the box? Where does that leave US ? This is a real poser,isn't it?  Is there a new category for such disturbed individuals? Not middle age,but.....(think think)...kiddle age?(yes,i realise that's a pathetic attempt) Must say if i could recapture the excitement i used to receive from scrabbling through the vitabrits box to get the iron on patch,life would be grand indeed  .

Mood - hmmmm...hungry

NEVER!!! In the field of human conflict has so much fibre been eaten by so many in pursuit of little plastic space men.  Everytime they advertise Goodies in cereal boxes my first thought is "How would they fit Tim Grae and Bill into one of those boxes" I think that this is a sign that although the outside is showing the signs of middle age the inner child in me is alive and thriving. "growing old is compulsory but growing up is completely optional".

I've had to resign myself to drinking a mixture of water and psyllium husks twice a day...cereal isn't enough! Does that mean I can buy fun cereal, then? But they don't put little plastic horsies and doggies and circus animals in the packets anymore, like when I was a kid. You might just get the occasional CD or other gimmick, if you get the right packet. Maybe I should just go and eat my horses food!?

Janice,you are so funny . I agree with you,bondgirl,that growing up is completely optional-i've so far resisted growing up (as you may have noticed    ) and will continue to do so .Now,if only it was so easy with the growing old part ...    .  P.S. i do hope you know  that i was referring to to the goodies ad for plastic spacemen-where tim(??? is it is tim????can't remember) says "look mum,i found a cornflake!!!" -don't want anyone to think that i'm COMPLETELY mental    (partly mental is o.k) .

Yes, I knew what you were talking about. and yes, I think it is Tim; one of those ones where he is dressed up as a school boy.

I know which ad you're talking about and in that plastic spacemen ad I think that it is actually done by a real kid and Tim does the voice over!!  Tim did all the beans ads dressed as a little boy... prehaps we should ask Brett or someone whose memory is not as decrepit as ours
