Lt. Cmdr. Strauss! I would have missed this entirely if you hadn't responded to my comment (it showed up in my lekkiepost box.) Why not have a Diary of your own?

Re: Just in case anybody wants to know...

I don't know, Fraulein - who did steal half your answers?

It certainly was not I! I believe we had points of similarity in about three cases.

Some people DO exaggerate!

I suppose I *could* change them if you require sole possession of your answers, but no, I should be untrue to myself so I'm afraid you may simply have to share.

Just remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and enjoy it.

Sincerely,

She who does not steal answers. xxxxxxx

Re: Just in case anybody wants to know...

Well, 5. But I'll admit it was an exaggeration. It was the important answer that struck me. Should we ever find ourselves in Liverpool Cathedral we must ask for a lesson.
