like a dung beetle! oh, i like that.

itchy fingers said...

she lives in a shoe
with so many children
she doesn't know what to do

gtg said...

the cockroach is not a dung beetle, unfortunatly. shall we wait for more guesses or is it just the three of us playing nowadays?

bbb is very preoccupied with work - quelle surprise

tf i don't know

maybe give a clue and see who else joins in

itchy said...

yes a clue, a clue!

la cucaracha is studying German at the CAE in the hopes of running away to Berlin and becoming a Cabaret girl.

p.s fun fact of the day: The Volkswagon Beetle was originally commisioned by Hitler. It's a Nazi car. (T.V told me so it must be true.)

coincidence, itchy

i am just googling brauhaus chairs, featured on that very same TV shows

I'm trying to find out if the chair I got from my Grandmother is one, or a repro - no luck so far

Tuchfrau said...

Yes, and further fun fact - the Volkswagen factory was used as a cover for tank manufacturing by the Nazis, as the Germans were banned from military expansion, or was it from having an army at all by the terms of the Versailles treaty.

The cockroach is walking down the canals of amsterdam, from whence I have jsut returned, getting high on passive cannabis smoke.

Or, the cockroach is the technician who has just repaired my computer (the other reason I haven't been online.)

hello tuchfrau! good to see you back in the virtual world.

the cockroach is a housemate who doesn't begin packing for her imminent move until two days before the aforementioned.

the cockroach is a gelatin based squishy lolly at the bottom of a jar hidden in the desk of the the year 10 English teacher at Mowbray, circa 1999.

(CLUE TIME!!!!!!!!!)

itchy said...

i'm getting bored of checking this game and not finding any clues or guesses.

can you tell me when it changes?

gtg said...

aw. . . you are all so good. except now i feel bad about voltswagons. they're so *cute*!

amelia is not human.

itchy fingers said...

not to be pedantic or anything, but next time can we not have a 'is not' clue, which seem to be the norm these days, as it draws out the game so unbearably, and I (it's all about me, you see) get bored easily.

the cockroach is flipper, flipper, faster than light.
or some other performing T.V animal, eg Skippy, Willy, that dog that was like Skippy, Mr Ed

gtg said...

i was teasing grotty. you have no sense of humour, itchy-bossy-bum.

amelia has her hands full. (or paws. whatevs.)

Anonymous said...

i feel, itchy, that it had better be YOU that draws up the oft-touted 'hide the cockaroach' manual

Rule Number One: There IS no rule number One



Amelia is juggling 10 small children and a speeding chainsaw, all at the same time and simultaneously as well

Gauri said...

mmm.. amelia is balancing circus elephants on her little feeties while reciting the periodic table backwards.

[i still don't think i get this game]

itchy fingers said...

as you wish.

Cockroach hiding manual. (TM)

1. A fast game is a good game.

2. Whatever Itchy says is law.

3. All players should buy Itchy ice cream when they see her.

4. From Trampoline.

5. Or that other gelati shop in St Kilda.

6. The end.

the cockroach is 'having it all' like the real Modern Woman. She is a Supreme Court judge married to a media mogul with three toddlers who she home schools in Classical languages while baking/embroidering competitively and writing a best selling series of crime novels.
in her spare time she likes to contemplate suicide while endeavouring to grow the first blue rose.

i like having blog chat with you, even if you do like to rool

guari, seems like you do get this game - yr answer is exactly right (tho not correct, i hasten to point out, as i am not the hider and am scared of gtg's hacking wrath)

CLUE PLEASE!

gtg said...

your guesses are all very amusing, but very wrong.

when invoked, amelia has control over itchy. and all the rest of you.

itchy said...

the cockroach isn't Daniel Craig by any chance?

gtg said...

amelia is blind.

itchy fingers said...
