in Awards!, memememememe, munchies, On the box
First of all, I’d like to thank Sue Doe Nim from the heart of my bottom for recognising that it is tough work growing up a relatively normal person given the fact that my parents are both complete nutters.
I’d also like to thank her for this:
It gives me warm fuzzies to think my printed brain farts are making a difference to her day!
I’m going to pass it on to ten of you fellow brain-farters, just because your blogs cheer me up and get my cogs grinding. Youz all rock so you doez.
Baino, because I’m raging you live so far away and the Blog Awards gave me a hankering to share a drink with you.
Hailey, for being real in all senses of the word!
English Mum, because I love your blog and your Bert.
Jenny, because your posts are always interesting and I like the way you think.
Manuel, because I like the cut of your jib.
Hairyfish, you are the King of funny quickies!
Dad, because you could do with some iron, and you’re my bloggy idol as well as my reality idol!
Medbh, for keeping it real and because you’re so pretty.
Moo-Dog, because I can’t believe I haven’t discovered your genius earlier!
Brian, because you were there from day one :)
I’ve noticed, though, that the award itself is very pretty. While us ladies love this sort of thing, I’m worried that the blokes will think it a little too… umm… ‘quaint’. So for you gents who would prefer something slightly more butch, I give you this:
This next meme is from Brian who I would also like to thank because his meme is easy-peasy and da’cent craic.
Four jobs I’ve held:
-Pharmacy Technician (Unqualified! I lied my ass off to get that job)
-Dunnes Stores Checkout girl
-Pint puller in a hotel near Bray
-P.A. to the M.D. of a glazing company (This sounds impressive, but there were just two of us working for the company. Christmas parties were really quiet.)
Four movies I’ve watched over and over again:
-The Power of One
-Stand by Me
Four places I’ve been:
-Skinnydipping in the sea on a Donegal beach at night-time surrounded by thousands of tiny glowing swimming ameoba
-In a cave in France with a candle and my dad, surrounded by bats, cavepaintings, and huge white spiders
-Trabolgan (exotic, ooooo!)
Four places I’ve lived:
(Not too well-travelled, me)
Four tv shows I watch:
Four radio shows I listen to:
-Ray D’Arcy (Today FM)
-Jenny Huston’s The Waiting Room
-Rick O’Shea (2FM) and I’m not ‘just saying’ that because he’s a bloggerer!
-Matt Cooper’s The Last Word
Four things I look forward to:
-The smell of the first lawn-cut of the summer
-Having money to spare again
-Brushing out the dog’s winter coat
Four favourite foods:
-Spreadable Chocolate Sauce
-Chili Con Carne
Four places I’d rather be:
-Living in my new house
-In the pilot seat of an F14 fighter jet
-Camping in the Grand Canyon
Four people I email regularly:
-Me aul ‘fla
-My buddy Lou
-The Chairman of the local resource group I belong to
-Mathilde, an ex-French student of ours
The rules say that I have to pass this meme on to four people, then comment on their blogs to let them know. I am however, in Sue-Doe-Nim style, going to break the last part of this rule because I’m on a dial-up connection which has to be disconnected now for the good of my bank balance. Don’t worry though, I’ll be reminding you in due course…
I pass this meme forward to Me Mammy, Eire Rules, Jenny in her Living Room, and Curly K! Have fun, ladies!
