Ladies and Gentlemen, I feel fabulous and I have Elliot to thank for my nomination. He’s a writer and poet and has a great blog, Brainsplats so check the link. Of course I graciously accept – although I did run round whooping like a lunatic when I received it a week or two ago… but nobody saw me. So, dignified deep breath.
The seven facts about me are;
- I lived in Amsterdam for two years but I didn’t inhale
- I occasionally paint oil paintings, more of that in the near future.
- I love cats, the way they arrive in our lives with no luggage or tenancy agreement and turn us into their slaves while being unconditionally adored.
- I used to be a DJ in Manchester during the Madchester and Rave eras, but I still have incredibly sensitive hearing.
- I love gardening. Have no idea how that happened.
- All mathematical components in my brain are missing, presumed stifled by more interesting talents. I actually count on my fingers.
- There is a very strange symmetrical, geometric symbol on the back of my neck. It’s a birthmark, but it looks like a crop circle…
You weren’t expecting that last one, were you?
