I must have been in a daze or something when I agreed to Mini-Dweller having a group of friends around today!

I tell ya teenagers..who'd have them! [:0]

They're all running around like loons, not such a bad thing I suppose better than sitting around!

They've got the music on and they appear not to be able to listen to song all the way through....instead listening to it for about 1 minute before flicking to another tune!...........Tune!! mmmmmm I use that term very loosely! But having said that I did just hear "You're the one that I want from Grease and I was happily singing along when 1 minute later it was something else.......sigh!

Only 31/2 hours until the girls leave.....then it's the boys all night!

Annnnnnd I'm out of ruddy wine! :p

Okay, first things first - get some wine [8D] Or maybe a neighbour has a bottle of cooking sherry? BD can stop on the way home if you can last that long.

Next either send the teenagers away to the other end of the property or go there yourself, with the wine of course. Take a picnic and a book and enjoy the peace and quiet.

If you really want to get rid of them play Barry Manilow or Neil Diamond really loudly until they leave.

Alteratively, strangle the lot of them [}:)]

Oh I agree with Kate! First things first... get a supply of wine in!!!

Now dealing with teen-agers <looks up Big Book of Keeping Teenagers in their Place> kaaaay says here... feed them to quieten down
Strongly suggest vast quantities of pizza/chicken nibbles followed by sticky caramel slice They will have no hands free to change songs
Followed by introducing them to 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' this induces a stunned silence followed by gagging when you mention that everyone you know used to dress up as their favorite character and go to town to watch it[:0][:0][:0]:D:D

Teenagers are fun to traumatize! ;)

Strange how much you've got to know, Before you know how little you know.

I used to put on the stereo, very loudly, some classical or opera. That cleared the house for hours.:D

Wouldn't that be classed as 'cruel and unusual punishment' Toni[?]:D

Teenagers are fun to have around, even if, at times, you wonder about their breeding[}:)]:D

It's actually quite funny, I'm a great people watcher, and my job with young kids meant of lot of observing. I'm in the office and they don't know I'm here, last time they saw me I was heading off into the hills!!

I can hear them egging on one fella to text some girl or other, but he doesn't want to, there's much hilarity and giggling going on!

I did feed them pizzas drifter, no wonder the girls are so darn skinny they had one slice each!! Instead of cooking 5 I could have got away with 2 I reckon. Oh such restraint, I had about half of one myself cutting it up! lol

Perhaps I'll sneak down the stairs into the flat below and hide in the cupboard!! Then I'll be able to hear everything!

Muhahahahahahaha................

Oh and another thing, ya know I've never seen the Rocky Horror picture show meself!

Jeeze MM, I think teenagers are a cruel and unusual punishment. My parents got blasted with Doris Day and Glenn Miller AND they were their recordings, not mine..... however, the Doris Day record did go missing one day and I never ever found it. Dad said he'd leant it to someone. I was gutted! I tell you Gutted! I've only ever seen one copy since.

Also, you just HAVE to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Tim Curry was just excellent.

If you're going mad, what does that make me???

My 15yo (boy) has had 4 mates around for the last 3 days. They arrived with their computers and X-Boxes, stacks of games and took over my lounge on Tuesday! They played and watched until late in the night, and were all looking dead when I tiptoed through to have breakfast before going to work. It's now Thursday evening, and they're all about to go home. It'll take me a week to recover - my fridge and pantry may never be the same. My 13yo (also boy) joined the party, so I've had 6 large noisy teenagers taking over my lounge for 3 days.

I must say though, they are the nicest, mnost polite bunch that I've ever encountered - they don't forget their please's and thank-you's, and the fruit juice and fruit & veges disappeared long before the pizzas and fizzy drink.

I would have prefered the music (but I think even I would draw the line at Doris Day) to the incessant gunfire coming out of 2 x-boxes, but at least they kept the volume down at night.

And they've planned to do it again in the Xmas school holidays! With any luck we'll be living at the farm by then, so I won't have to worry about the neighbours.

11 acres (4 in QEII Covenanted native bush), 15 sheep, 2 beefies, large vege gardens and a goat, and still no dog!:(

Oh, and uncountable wild birds - including fantails, swallows, yellowhammers, morepork, magpies, hawks, pukekos, and even quaill, pheasants and rainbow lorikeets [:D][:D] Not to mention possums, hares, rabbits, rats...

Our house is still like that smilie:D I reckon teens travel in packs hunting down full fridges then moving on to the next unsuspecting pantry[8D]
MM I think you should check that those girls really are teens[}:)] coz the ones around here can go head to head in eating competitions with the boys...
You really must put The Rocky Horror Picture Show on your 'to do' list:D:D But you need a group of people to watch it with. Then a different group to watch their reactions the second time you watch.

MM you must get more organised now that you are so far from town and lay in a supply of wine - and a back up supply as well - you must have a wee corner for a wine cellar!

The boys are kicking a rugby ball about outside and they've had me in stitches!
One of MD's mates just has to be a comic when he's and adult, he's so ruddy funny!

Still no wine here, but there are spirits so I'm thinking that a vodka, tonic with a dash of lime is in order!
I'll have one while we chuck some chicken burgers on the barbie! (Not the doll!)
