Apparently, Ruth Davis Hayes got it in her mind that I should receive this fine award you see to your left. I am honoured! So before you read the insanity that spewed in tendrils from my fingertips, you ought to scurry forth and check out her uber-groovy website!
So here is how this is gonna work. I am supposed to tell you 7 random things about me. At the end of this mess, I'll challenge other writers/bloggers/all-round-badass Sith in training, so prepare yourselves, I know who you are.
So let's just get down to bwass tax, shall we?
- When I was baby/toddler, Gerber's Blueberry Buckle was my favourite baby food. On into adulthood, I would occasionally pick up a jar, because blueberries. Since they seem to have stopped making it, I have found the perfect replacement - blueberry pie filling.
- I became a fan of XTC by way of The Dukes of Stratosphear, who is actually XTC photgraphed using some kind of mystery Acid trip lens filter.
- Although I'm not proud of it, I have to admit that I have a knack for Macchiavellian activity. If that makes me a high functioning sociopath, then so be it. Just because I have the ability doesn't mean I use it.
- I think this is connected with #3: I have had strong evangelical abilities from the age of around 4 and throughout my life. I actually wanted to be a preacher as a kid but, because I had no danglies and it was still the 70s, when women were still expected to play certain roles, one of which was definitely not preaching, I had no proper (or what I thought was proper at the time) outlet. When my uncle commented in 1982 that I had converted the entire family to the Electric Light Orchestra, I realised you don't necessarily have to be evangelising about god. I have since evangelised about a lot of things and people. Praise be.
- I had my head humped by a Beagle in 1987 and I was French-kissed by a Senegal Parrot just a couple of months ago.
- I once wrote a weekly report for which I was responsible at work completely in Rap form. That experience gave me a new level of respect, even awe, for Rappers. Because that shit is hard!
- I once translated ABBA's "I Have a Dream" into Lasha-Talourah, the language of the Tarmi.
