i’ve been nominated for a sunshine award. hehehehehe let me go find my smile, i put it down earlier and misplaced it.
to be honest i’ve been nominated for a few other awards from some great people including Vic and Mike and Sista (sorry if i’ve forgotten anyone).
Let me start by sharing with you those that make me smile;
Amy, wacky stories of normal events 🙂
Vic, always uplifting and thoughtful
Sis, you make me smile, reminding me of friends nearby
Mike, always got something nice to say to me and very clever with his words.
GreenMackenzie, such beautiful photography and sentiments to match.
Tyrone Tribulations a parody of Irish life,
what i love of the Irish is their love of self spoofing humour 🙂
Diary of David Cameron (spoof) hehehehehe
Hernan, he’s not afraid to say what he thinks, which is always interesting in an Irvine Welsh kind of way 🙂 a true ray of sunshine in an otherwise shitty world 🙂
Extinction Protocol, media that matters, not media that flatters
Mikial, a fountain of true knowledge and true humility 🙂
i realise these might not be their blog names but it’s 4am (5am now) and my eyes are burning 🙂 you can find them in my ‘favourite blogs’ area or ‘recent poetry that i’ve liked’ area, or find them chatting in my comments area 🙂
please forgive me guys, i do love ya work and you all make me smile. 😀
i almost always side with the Underdog in many situations. Every dog has his day. or so the saying goes.
i live day by day, which reminds me, i must buy toilet roll tomorrow, i went shops twice today and forgot both times.
although i’m fairly shy, i’m also quite outspoken, quite often speaking before i collect my thoughts, which can take a while.
i’m fairly forgetful. i can remember all the twists in a great book (thinking of The Ghosts Of Sleath) yet i can’t remember what topic i was discussing five minutes ago, hence i digress a lot, which annoys some people.
i love the smell of cut grass in the rain. on the flipside, i hate the smell of rain in a built up area.
i like to go jogging as long as it’s spontaneous, if i think about it beforehand i seem to falter a lot sooner.
i’m not very good at hiding feelings or thought processes, if i’m sad or angry or frustrated; you’ll notice by my silence or involuntary expressions.
i dwell on things too much. God, love, sorrow, debt, the nature of life, fate etc et al. it’s 2:16am and i’ve got a tonne of nothing and everything on my mind 🙂 (editors note, damn it’s almost 5 now)
rarely do i complete any personal task before starting another. the walls are 3/4 painted, the washing up is Almost done, and so on 🙂
i like to surprise myself, like doing barwork in a shitty suburb or cycling over two hundred miles to the coast and back, just to see if i can.
“this country mouse aint no city slicker, the long way round always feels quicker, i’ve cycled the miles and walked on by, never did learn to drive, smoke a spliff and we’ll get high.”
What is the first thing you do as soon as you wake up in the morning?
usually i call my daughter across the hall to wake up 🙂 i get up ten mins later 🙂
What is your greatest fear?
i can’t decide. maybe being reborn to go through life another countless times? or public ridicule? or that my daughter would be hurt by my actions.
Do you have a new years resolution for 2014?
nope. i hate being told what to do 🙂 for that reason alone i make no resolution 🙂 if something was that important, i wouldn’ wait until January to start.
What is your favorite song at the moment?
I Don’t Worry About It by The Meteors.
and Death Dance by the same band.
they contrast with each other i think because one is so brash and the other is quite a thoughtful story.
What is your favourite childhood memory?
visiting my Great Nan near Wales or my stepdad sharing naughty songs with us (such as Kevin Bloody Wilson, Judge Dread etc. if a song was in an advert, my stepdad would know alternative lyrics such as “it wasn’t the grass that tickled your arse, it was my finger, it wasn’t the hay that made you that way it was my penis, magic….moments…when two hearts are (forgot nex’ bit).
Facebook or Twitter?
Facebook, i don’t have a twit account. i use facebook for chatting with close friends and sharing music that nobody wants to listen to 🙂
What did the last text message you received say?
let’s just say it was rated 18+ and it put a smile on my face 😉
What bugs you the most?
politics, me, fleas, walking slowly, people being taken advantage of; i can’t decide.
What do you consider to be the most important appliance in your house?
cooker and freezer, without these things a home is just a brick cave that you can’t cook inside of. washing machine because i’m a parent.
If you could have one song that would play whenever you entered a room, what would it be?
Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Pink Floyd) in the bathroom.
Buster Voodoo or Diablo Rojo (Rodrigo y Gabriela) in the kitchen
Your Touch or Tighten Up or Howling For You (Black Keys) in the bedroom
The Last Bus to Sanity or The Phantom Rider (The Meteors) in the living room.
i’ve never had a favourite song, it depends what mood i’m in so i’ve chosen songs that reflect the feel of the room i guess.
What’s your favorite movie quote?
“A moment of realisation is worth a thousand prayers.” Nat Born Killers.
