Cowart's Common Room
Game for AFTER 'Where I Live'

Please start thinking of ideas for another game or thing we can all participate in and enjoy. Where I Live is already in the 'S' names.

I'm stumped at the moment....

Re:
Toady's Avatar What about ' my favourite walk' Doesn't have to be from where you live, just a memorable walk that you've done.

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar It was suggested we do our first blogs from CL - which means we can't do everyone - but it would be really interesting to see people's first blogs.

Re:
LittleBrownDog's Avatar Like Toady's idea - my favourite walk, or journey. Or favourite place (although I'm sure many of these will be the same as where I live, probably). From a nosy point of view, I think "how and where I met my other half" might be interesting, although might not suit or include everybody. I'm a bit embarrassed about my first blog on CL, though - think it was probably a bit gushy.

I like Toady's idea too

Re:
Faith's Avatar Mmm good ideas - keep them coming!

Posted by: Faith on 8th Apr 2008 at 10:25AM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar How about - what would YOU do if you won a million . . . that should produce some interesting ideas.

Re:
Milla's Avatar I like the first blog or the How I Met one. My first blog is fairly gushy and jolly so don't think you're alone, LBD!

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar I think it would be interesting to see how we have changed our style as time has gone by. It really doesn't matter how red-making the first was does it? Blink

Re:
KittyB's Avatar I like the first blog idea best - although mine too was probably a bit, erm, pretentious. I can't really remember but I bet I tried too hard to be clever and funny. Never works.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar You know, I have always fancied the idea of something collaborative. Rather than each of us doing our own thing, we all contribute to something. This could be a recipe book (or blog), a blog of lifestyle or life coaching ideas,
ideas for the garden (my entry would be very small there). Other ideas would be for a poetry anthology, or following in the steps of Un Peu, my favourite painting. We could do a Desert Island Discs - with or without a list of records, a blog of diet and exercise, household tips, parenting (ugh) strategies - the list is quite long, but I would see us all contributing say 300 words to some sort of blog, that could then be read as a whole. Something to remember the whole site by.

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Yes I like the holiday idea.

My first blog was actually pretty grovelly . . . but that is the whole point to see how we have changed.

Maybe pick out the ideas Faith and then set up a Poll in the writing Forum.

Re:
Faith's Avatar Ok WW - will do. Let's leave this open for today and then I will see what ideas we have got.

Re:
How about five must read books or books that have influenced you.

Re:
LittleBrownDog's Avatar Ooh, like Fennie's favourite recipe idea! Then we could make it into a book, and maybe have a spin-off TV series with a different PurpleCoo person making the food each week a-la Delia... Laughing

Posted by: LittleBrownDog on 8th Apr 2008 at 02:17PM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Wasn't there also a very good suggestion of a picture and short explanation of where we do our Purplecooing . . .

Posted by: Westerwitch on 8th Apr 2008 at 02:17PM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar Plus also the idea on the Private Forum for getting together and producing something.

Posted by: Westerwitch on 8th Apr 2008 at 02:21PM

Re:
LittleBrownDog's Avatar Ooh, going off to look at idea on Private Forum - think I must have missed that...

Posted by: LittleBrownDog on 8th Apr 2008 at 02:27PM

Re:
Peterwf's Avatar I like the five books idea, it should give an interesting insight into one anothers mind.

Posted by: Peterwf on 8th Apr 2008 at 02:40PM

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Now then, now then, settle down there at the back to mention no names LBD, no one said anything about a TV series! Just an interesting webpage on which we each contributed something.

Haven't found the piece on the private forum. Can someone direct please?

Posted by: Fennie on 8th Apr 2008 at 03:14PM

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar There is the link - trying to keep it quiet - hence not advertising it all over the Common Room . . .schhhhhhh as Sally would say.

Posted by: Westerwitch on 8th Apr 2008 at 03:48PM

Re:
Faith's Avatar Another idea would be My Pet (Past or Present).

Re:
Lampworkbeader's Avatar HANG on! I haven't done my, 'Where I live' yet....

Posted by: Lampworkbeader on 8th Apr 2008 at 04:31PM

Re:
first blog would be very amusing C'mon girls don't be Shy [can't spell embarressed] and it would be so easy no thinking involved at all! Also a photo of where we blogxx

Posted by: Bodran on 8th Apr 2008 at 05:23PM

Re:
Camilla's Avatar I'm with you LWB, still to do Where I Live yet.

Winning a million...... should not take me long to spend thatLaughing

Re:
Fennie's Avatar I've elaborated my recipe idea in the private forum - see the address in Westerwitch's entry above.

Posted by: Fennie on 8th Apr 2008 at 06:20PM

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar First blog please! And, for those that have never blogged, maybe the challenge to write one!

But why not also do the Five Books on the book forum (I'd really love to read that) in a more informal way?
And, if not a cookbook why not post favourite recipes on the Food and Drink forum?
I like 'where we blog' as well - maybe that could come later....

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 8th Apr 2008 at 09:50PM

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar btw, didn't mean that non-bloggers had to start a real blog - just that they could imagine they were starting one and put down what they might write (but post in the relevent forum).

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 8th Apr 2008 at 09:51PM

Re:
Cait's Avatar I would like us to do our first blogs on 20th April or thereabouts. if possible.
I suggested a while ago that we do the room where we blog etc with a photo.
The book idea is good, we could do that in the forum?
Recipes also in the forum?
All these sorts of things we do could come together as a scrapbook in the end p'r'aps.
List of other blogs we like? (outside purplecooland).

Posted by: Cait on 8th Apr 2008 at 11:12PM

Re:
Fennie's Avatar I did 'where I blog' as part of 'where I live' - same place really. Even tidied it specially and took its photograph for the occasion.
