Don't know if you have the lollies called "Sherbies" elsewhere in the world but they are my favourite lollies and i was trying to pick a username a while ago and it just popped into my head.

I like putting them in the microwave for about 8 seconds. Don't try this at home kids!

(if you don't have them they are orangey chewy lollies with sherbet in the middle).


Wow - in the microwave - do they go all gooey? I am going to have to try that.. Do I keep them in the wrapper! Laughing

Take them out of the wrapper. If you do it right they won't go all gooey they'll just go nice and soft, depends on your microwave. I say don't try this at home kids because the heated up toffee can be REALLY hot.

Wow...I've never tried that! Does it work with redskins and stuff too?

Note to self: buy sherbies tomorrow!

But then they're not as good since they changed the recipe - there's not enough sherbert in them anymore, and the toffee tastes different.

My username is fairly obvious. Bon Jovi has been my favourite band since I was about (and still is all these years later)

My parents called me Kelly after the Del Shannon song (I've just heard it and it's about a girl being unfaithful!!!!), and the other name happened when I got married. I'm not very creative...unless I'm drunk.

One day I discovered a site called TradeMe and had to give myself a name. Well, my ex and my son were looking over my shoulder at the time while I was musing and my son said,"hey mum, you should call yourself Cupatea cos you like drinking tea so much!" and so all and sundry know me as "Cupatea". It does fit me well though.

Mine's just a nickname for my real name. It was easy to remember and a heck of a lot easier to type than one of my other nicks (MizLiciouss).

Although, now that I think about it, maybe I should have tried "E. Weatherwax" as a name since I've been compared to her a few times...

Nah, I think I'll just stick to what I can remember.

Wstfgl?
