MAY THE FORTH BE WITH YOU!

MAY the 4th - get it? I chuckled 'til May the 5th 1st time I heard that ;)
OK I'm hosting a post (& there's a giveaway too) at "the Butterfly Effect" and at the moment there's only 4 entries & all you need to do is... well go on over & take a look... HOLD ON BABE!! Come back, I mean after you finish this post ;) Anyway part of it is a little Q&A so without further adieu... I'm posting my answers to the 
'WHAT SORT OF HERO ARE YOU'? The Quiz
1. What Super Power would you posses?
Thanks for asking :) It sounds heavy... but ever since my mum pinned a tea-towel around my shoulders with a nappy pin, tousled my hair & told me I could be a super hero & I took off running around the backyard flying around the hillshoist & ran smack into a palling fence I have given great thought to this question... I think a totally cosmic power... like all of them combined, supa-strength, supa-speed, supa-telepathic, shape-shifting (get rid of those extra pounds instantly)... maybe invulnerability & to make others invulnerable too? Is that too much to ask?
2. What's your costume of choice?
Something sexy, I think knee high black stiletto boots, black corset & of course a tea-towel pinned around my neck as a cape.
3. Do you have/want a sidekick? 
I would have a revolving door of sidekicks, you know, the funny one, the mega-muscly (but not on steroids & hetro-sexual one) the artistic one, the one that does all the housework & cooking one, the best-buddy one...
4. What's your weakness?
WEAKNESSES??? With all my sidekicks & eye-candy picking up the slack no one will notice my faults ;)
5. You a lover or a loner?
Lover & Loner... moving on...
6. Do you have a secret identity/ordinary life to juggle?
Yes in my ordinary life I battle the bulge & other bad habits while I sit at my desk longing to slip back into my tea-towel & stilettos...
7. Being a hero can make you enemies - who's/what's yours?
Well I don't like to fight so I disarm my enemies with my wit & a swift kick to the groin.
8. What's your motto or catchphrase...
Everyone can be a hero ;)

Now it's also Paint Party Friday & as well I am taking part like many of you talented babes in 29 Faces (Part 2) so I'd like to share...
 Face 2-Ghost Passing Through...

 Face 3-Frontier Girl...

 Face 4-Small, Wise & wields a light saber as good as any hero...Yoda.
I guess I've come full circle with this little dude, so wishing you all a fun weekend :) & again... May the Forth be with you all ;)

LATE ADDITION TO POST - Hey guys as I've started going around to visit posts I have come across 5 warnings so far (my blog had one this morning too so I had to fix) but ANYONE apparently who had content or a background from Shabbyblogs.com has been targeted & made vulnerable to malware... which is a bummer as they are nice backgrounds... this is what comes up on Goggle as you try to visit...
OK, it's just many of you may not be aware & wondering why there's not as many comments as usual... OK good luck with deleting the problem :)

I love the super hero question and your answers are hilarious - I could totally picture you with the tea towel and nappy pin!

These paintings are awesome - yoda is adorable!

Thanks for the warning advice. I think I used to have a shabbyblogs things a while back but it stopped working so I deleted it so hopefully I'm not affected with this.

Jan said...

Shelle, that ghost face is fantastic!!! Of course I love all of them but Yoda has always been one of my favorite characters.

Thanks for the warning. I am using Elegia's backgrounds right now but maybe I had better think of just doing my own thing to be safe.

Great Big hugs,
Jan

Magaly Guerrero said...

I want to kick at your sides, I mean I want to be your sidekick. I'm not very muscular, but I have supper butt muscles and they kick ass--really.

Love the ghost, but you already knew I would. And Yoda, yum. I'm going to see if I can find it in your store. Tell me you haven't sold it. Please.

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

The ghostly one has mesmerizing hollow cheeks and the frontier girl looks so wholesome and joyfully lively after him.
Of course Yoda had to be part of the gang on the 4th. :D Yes, I love that one too and used it (more than once) this week. :)

I'm a bit late to the party, but WOW! The first image is incredibly spooky, the second made me think of the Frontier/American Indian novels I love to read and the third...at first I honestly thought that it was an actual image from the movie! Great job!

denthe said...
