Yet again, the last resort of the imaginatively challenged...

Yes, yes, yes! It's a meme. Just a short one, this time.

1. If I could be a fly on the wall I would look out for insect sprays and fly swatters, I guess.

2. Jealousy is … very difficult to reason with.

3. If I see a shooting star my wish is that … it doesn’t crash into Earth.

4. I'd rather be the gossiper than the gossipee any day!

5. Certain songs when I hear them make me wanna … cryyyyyy.

6. If time were in a bottle … I’d leave the cork in or let it all out, depending on where I was (On holiday - cork in. At work - cork definitely out!)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to … hmph. A lot of cleaning

tomorrow my plans include … enjoying a mug of filter coffee at leisure, a trip to the optician and then potting two chilli plants and a tomato plant. Never say my life isnt exciting!

and Sunday, I want to … be a vegetable. The kind of vegetable that reads a good book while lolling in bed and listening to chill-out music.

So what would you, gentle reader(s), fill in the blanks with? (Is there a better - grammatically speaking - way to phrase this question?)

That vegetable would be - a couch potato? Or a bed potato?
My weekends are spent gardening too :)

That's it! A couch potato :D Since I like potatoes, I dont mind being one... but why dont other vegetables make use of the couch? I mean, someone might conceivably want to be a couch karela, or whatever. :)

and you an editor, shyam! since you want to be grammatically correct here...
So what would you, gentle reader(s), fill in the blanks with?
could have been "So how would you, gentle reader(s), fill in the blanks?"
hey, you asked :-)

Brin: There's a reason I outsource my thinking to you... :D
