Diverting slightly, why are all the housing agents named after flowers.....the few I had met were named - lily, jasmine, rose, bougainville (OK now, I am exaggerating) ;)



Yes it's wierd isn't it? Btw, have you found a place yet? If not send me a PM and I'll give you the details of my agent, Venus Fly-Trap. Lovely girl and found us a wonderful flat but if she invites you out for dinner, take my advice and decline!!!!

Nursey! I can hear the voices again!!!!!!!!



;) Thanks Richie.

Someone told me why....it seems the names are such that they can be remembered easily. Makes sense.

Shall pass Miss Fly-Trap for now. :) I can understand 'Fly-trap' but why Venus?

I think you misspelled "Perversity" :P

Opps... Thanks for pointing it out... I meant Perseverance (Determination). Not something hideously kinky. :P It's a slip of the finger since I'm now wearing wrist braces for my mild carpal tunnel syndrome.

Ha ha ha! It's the new fashion for the techno-minions. :wink: But I rather like them...it reminds me of Leela's (of Futurama fame) computer armband. :D

It's easy to know about my background since I sound like a boring lecturer when I write. :cool: :P

The full name of the plant I know is the venus fly trap. You have to include the first part as it is a girl's name and without it the joke doesn't actually work.
