OK, I'd like to thank, well there's so many people...
Hang on, this isn't the Academy Awards, hell it's not even Police Academy 5... but an awards celebration it is it is and for someone who's first & only blue ribbon at sport was for Tug-A-War when I was 15, I can't tell you how thrilled & awkward I feel accepting the "JUST LOVE HER VERSATILE WAY" in the last 24 hours I have been heavily tagged (& now sporting bruises) by the wonderfully wicked Magaly from Pagan Culture then out of the blue WHAM tagged next by the delicious Mina at Green Witch with Sprinkles and before I could recover, SLAP BANG the unique & wonderfully loud Linda from Olde Baggs 'n Stuft Shirts hit me with the same award, OK does it look like I have that many secrets to share??
Well uh uhhh... so when I was given "Three Freaking Things" from my bestie Stacy from Magic Love Crow also arrived... OK, a slightly different award BUT Not toooo different, I decided this avalanche needed addressing so hang onto your glomesh purses, here we go... Fast & Furious...
Oh Yeah, there ARE rules to this, but, hell, I'm just doing 3x3x3x3
3 things I love
Blackjack, A blank sheet of paper, Life Drawing (see Paint Party Friday addition)
3 more things
Memphis, Trinity, & the Big F
3 things about my childhood
Never had a bike (I had a reputation as being clumsy), tied my brothers tonka trucks to my feet with mum’s tea-towels so I could roller-skate (the wheels kept piercing my arches with the steering wheels, ouch (yep deemed to clumsy for ‘real skates too), each night got changed after my bath in my wardrobe, very shy about my chubby body.
3 things I told my career guidance councillor I wanted to be, a private detective, radio announcer, dolphin trainer, they told me if I couldn’t be serious they couldn’t help, I was, but they didn’t.
3 Random things Don’t eat birds, eggs, offal etc, I was voted most likely to become a nun (by the nuns) and I have no respect for hypocrites, bluggers and go gooders of word only (not action)
3 more things just because I’m on a roll... Mum - a constant inspiration I am in awe of every single day, Dad - the most generous man & fabulously fun father who taught us to do our best, because that’s all you can do and taught us that material goods never made anyone a better person and I miss him & wish my girls had the opportunity to have met such a life-force. My siblings, for so many reasons I’d have to write a book to explain.
OK, Not going to bore you anymore because then I can’t bore you later (and I will my precious, I will)
But... Movies - Blade Runner (Directors Cut), Brazil, & Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind...
Comedy - Dodgeball, Marx Bros Day at the Races, & Zoolander
TV - Millennium, Battlestar Galactica (remake) & Family Guy
I gotta go, it’s Cheese-plate night & it’s every Friday Fruit, Cheese, Crusty loaf wine & sodas, the fires on, it’s dropped to 18 degrees (that’s cold on the Sunshine Coast) and there’s one more thing, you guys, you, you are the reason I’m here, thank you, I appreciate the company, the chat & the stimulation, and I know the 3 of you had better things to do tonight...
Almost forgot... tagging, nominate yourself if you want too, go on, grab a button, I'm a Libran, don't make me choose, I'd love to know some more about you, let me know in the comments & I'll come visit & read some things about YOU!! Please, volunteer otherwise I'll have to come after you ;)
Almost forgot, as per previous revelations, love life drawing & painting, this is of model Sarah, oil on plywood... Happy PPF ;)
