The Snarky words this week are 'Relax, we're all crazy. It's not a competition. Freda and Shirley are best friends and spend a lot of time together, talking about boyfriends, parents and everything that's going on in their group of friends. Shirley has just recently broken up with her boyfriend Gary who was a lovely sensible lad with a good job and great parents. They had had the silliest of rows about where to go on their holidays, and they were both so different they just couldn't agree on one they both liked. In the end Shirley had called him selfish and thoughtless and anything else she could think of. She really did like him a lot, and having rushed into a totally unsuitable relationship afterwards, now realised how crazy she had been. She now had the unenviable taste of not only finishing the new relationship, but to go and apologise to Gary and hope he would take her back. Freda then launched into her family grumbles, and said I can beat that . Look at the photo of my grandparents on the wall. They are in a boat without an engine, paddles or anything to steer with, they are really crazy, and it might be hereditary.  Shirley listened patiently and the said to Freda,"Relax, we're all crazy it's not a competition"

 The words this week are 'I just rescued some wine. It was trapped in a bottle' Alison was having her usual visit from her mum Jenny, who seemed to think that even at the age of thirty-three Alison still needed her mum to keep an eye on her. As soon as Jenny walked in she realised her timing was perfect, there was Alison sitting on the floor with a bottle of wine on the floor next to her' What on earth are you doing her mother wanted to know. Alison had been ready for some remark and had an answer ready. "I just rescued some wine. It was trapped in a bottle" "Don't be ridiculous" Jenny said, "don't forget your Great Grandfather was an alcoholic, and if you are not careful, you will be going the same way, that's why I put that photograph him on your wall, as a reminder" I am linking this to Mia's theme on Art Journal Journey, which is 'Use a photograph'

 The snarky words this week are ' Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck it back in' The twins Beth and Lexi had been asked by their mum to go and visit their Grandparents, their mums parents. They hadn't been since before Christmas and had been putting it off. They found that they were so out of date with the modern ways, a couple of centuries out as far as the girls could see. They decided to try and look their best and met up in the lounge just before setting off. Beth was horrified to see what Lexi was dressed in, nothing matched and she was dressed in all the colours she could think of, none of them co-ordinating. " For goodness sake Lexi, you look ridiculous, you even have odd boots on, what will they think ?      "Well I'm not going to look like the family photograph on the wall if that's what you were expecting" said Lexi, and I like these boots, I have another pair just like them in my wardrobe"   "That ladybird on your head is also silly and why do you have the little cuddly toy that Grandma bought for you in your pocket? I thought she would like to see that I still like it" said Lexi.  "She bought it for you when you were two, you are twenty-six now, you are being ridiculous" said Beth "Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck it back in"

 Tim Holtz's snarky words this week are 'Me sarcastic ? Never' Angela is feeling a bit low after the rush of Christmas and the New Year celebrations, and is quite happy to lounge around doing not very much. If she sees any more turkey or Brussels sprouts it will be too soon. Her husband who did very little towards the festivities, although he did buy her a load of new perfume and cosmetics was suggesting they go away for a break. Henry is standing in front of a photograph he took when he went mountain climbing while he was in university and suggested they go somewhere to do a bit of skiing. Angela is not very good at skiing and had visions of sitting on her own in the hotel for days on end. A nice beach somewhere hot would suit her much better. Looking at the picture and visibly shivering, Angela couldn't resist saying, "give me a minute and I'll go and pack my bikini" "There's no need to be sarcastic" said Henry. "Me sarcastic? Never" replied Angela.
