This is how it works: Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your blog, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

So gave me L

  1. Lettice
    Of course, the one and only , my wife. The source of much happiness, silliness and messiness.
  2. London
    My home for eight years and now my job. Huge, noisy, smelly, confusing, polluted, congested, over priced and badly run. Come to London and spend lost of money!
  3. Lock Forward
    My preferred position back when I played Rugby. Fine when I was at school as I was taller than most of my classmates but a bit tricker in the sixth form and at college when some people just kept on growing and I was relegated to being a roving utility forward (hated playing at prop, and flanker in today’s Rugby is just a back who pretends to be in the scrum). And yes, the locks are the ones who stick their hands between the prop’s legs – want to make something of that?
  4. Liberal
    I’m far too lazy to understand the nuances of political philosophy but being liberal puts one in the middle of the spectrum in Europe and in clear opposition to Bush at al. in the US. And that can’t be too bad a place to be can it?
  5. Links
    The web wouldn’t be the web without them. The implementation of inks in HTML/HTTP is primitive compared to most hypertext systems but the simplicity of a one way, stateless system of linking is what allowed the web to take off.
  6. Leather
    Sorry veggies. A good leather jacket can’t be beaten for looks and practicality. And then there’s skin tight shiny leather, mmmm…
  7. Laughter
    See also Lettice. I like laughing, who doesn’t?.
  8. Learning
    I never want to stop learning. Though unlike some people this doesn’t mean that I want to be a perpetual student. 😉
  9. Lead
    Actually most of my little friends aren’tr pure lead, and many have very little or no lead in them at all these days. The lead started to go out of toy soldiers over ten years ago when some US states brought laws in out of fear of lead poisoning. Never mind the termial kinetic energy poisoning from lead bullets…
  10. Looms
    See also Lettice. I don’t know much about looms but they seem to cause equal measures of joy and stress to my beloved.

  1. what a stupid idea. Give me a letter and watch the thread die in my blog cul-de-sac.

    Right, you can have ‘N’.
