Moreidlethoughts Weblog

humour,art,gardens, books and whatever idle thoughts float through my mind (it's a very draughty mind.)



Short post today as I’m feeling  somewhere between bemused and insulted.

Once upon a time The Man and I were categorised as DINK.

Then we became SINK.

I have just learned that a new demographic has pigeon-holed us as LINK.

I must have a lie-down…

corrected, thanks to ILTV.

  1. If it’s any consolation, J sometimes call me a dink.


  2. erm, what does the “S” stand for? or is that a question I shouldn’t ask. . .


  3. iltv…I’ve removed the redundant “s.” 🙂


  4. Nope – Haven’t a clue what it’s about.
    Has it anything to do with yuppies?


  5. Just got it – I’m a PINK.


  6. kaz…#1 yes

    kaz #2 I think I will be,too, soon. 😦


  7. I think I’m a LINK – oh, no I’m not, how could I forget the kids! There must be an acronym for me but I’m not capable of concentrating right now to figure it out. It definitely starts with LI though.


    • carol…well, since your “kids” are no longer dependents you probably *do*come in as a LINK. How absobloodylutely ghastly, dahling! When I think about all these acronyms and polls and questionnaires…I think that someone has much too much time to spare. *Ziggi…is that you?* I think another glass of bubbles is called for…



    that’s us 🙂

    I’m so looking forward to being PINK, however because of the earlier K part, my P won’t keep the cat.


  9. ziggi…I’ve had a long day, a couple of glasses of wine – whatever a DILFKSNL is is beyond me tonight! (It looks like the name of a Senegalese striker who was on the transfer list!)
    And by the time you are PINK, wont the cat be an ex-cat?

    How’re the kidneys?


  10. Double Income Loads Fecking Kids So None Left

    They are threatening me with day-surgery to look at kidney up close and uncomfortable – I may emigrate, do you have room at the inn?


    • Ha-ha! You should have gone SKI-ing (spending kids’ inheritance).

      Bad news on your booze filter, Ziggi. Of course you can come here. But maybe wait a week or so as a cyclone is being a tad pesky up north.
