GO! Give them Five!

Posted on March 16th, 2008 by I am insecure -do not read what I say

Yo Flowers founders and regulars! Let’s help BLOG IDOL contestants get to know us better.. How about a fun word game? Describe one (or more) of the regulars/ founders in 5 POSITIVE words! You can’t use a word that has been used three times already! Go! Get creative ha! ;) Feel free to add a one-line anecdote to explain your choice (that’s ONE line Chook! 8) )


That’s it! Bridget took feedback on board. I KISS now! Hey, don’t get excited boys! That’s KISS as in Keep It Short and Sweet! Ha! ;)

Elton, come play more word games with Bridget! I’ll start you off..

  14. Bridget Jones says:

    Since I doubt the half-fish-half-man-half-beer-mat has a fan-club at Flowers, looks like it’s for Bridget as the post author to take on the colossal task of doing Nemo ha!

    Here goes then, Fertile Fish:

    - Funny
    - Learned
    - Modest
    - Trustworthy
    - Daring

    Hmmm.. why do I have a feeling there’ll be lotsa explaining to do on that one? 8)

    Or am I wrong and does Flowers whole-heartedly agree with Bridget? Ha! ;)

    • Elton John - Drama Queen says:

      That’s really nice of you to describe my David like that it is, he’s right chuffed up to little mint balls now he is!

      But see, I thought it soundid more like me I did………….

      • David Furnish - Precious Little Prince says:

        It does not sounds like you Elt!

        Aunty Bridget could never say somethink like that about you, cos its just not true see. But I am dead chuffed at bein recognised an all I am, so I reckons that I should returns the compliment me!

        Aunty Bridget:

        1) She’s proper lovely she is
        2) She’s dead good at workin out wot people are like an all
        3) That makes her right clever it does
        4) All of the above times 10
        5) I reckon if I were a girl I would fancy her I would cos she’s that good lookin she is

        • Elton John - Drama Queen says:


        • Bridget Jones says:

          Thank you for your kind words David, Bridget is kinda dead chuffed to be recognised for her observation skills. I’ll tell you a secret Precious Little Prince (er..what happened to “Drama Princess” btw? 8) ), she learnt to do that in literature classes, character study it’s called.. Shhh.. don’t tell EJ, it’s our very own naughty lil secret ha!)

          Er.. I really don’t know how to break the news Mon Petit Prince, but Bridget was referring to another David with those words. You know, that David S. bloke who’s always so prim and proper? That’s him proper Bridget referred to. And to think he hasn’t even bothered to acknowledge the compliment ha! Right ungrateful some people are my little David. Not like you see, who takes ownership for others. People should learn from you they should.

          Hey, don’t be distressed about the news Princess, oops! I mean Prince. Bridget has come up for 5 words just for you:

          - Precious
          - Dramatic
          - Effusive
          - ArmCandy
          - PrettyBoy

          Enjoy David-Prince(ss). As you can see, it’s almost the same as David S’s.. 8)

  29. Urban Pagan says:






    Not going to do people I know as I will no doubt be having a pint with them in the not too distant future and we’d spend the entire time cringing.

    • aussiecynic says:

      Awhhhh Pagan you sweety you… thanks mate…

      If I ever get over there will buy you a pint….
      and Crisps

    • Bridget Jones says:



      Is this how you reciprocate friendship Gary? Thank you :(

      Plus, I thought we had agreed last year you wouldn’t use this kind of language with Bridget?

      Thought Bridget could trust Gary and that Gary respected Bridget.

      Looks like I’ve been a poor judge on character on this one.
