In 300 words or less, tell us:
· one secret
· one lie
· one interesting quirk
· one annoying habit
· one of your best character traits, and
· one of your favourite things in the whole world.
The post can be in any format, including poetry (for those poets among us), but must include the random words, “bloviate,” “fuliguline,” “rabbit,” and “blade” (tee hee).
Actually the first challenge was to get round to following every single crusader, both on blogs and Twitter (those that tweet anyway), which I have managed to do.
On to the next bit:
I love facts. I love putting facts together and drawing logical conclusions. The trouble is that I tend to bloviate as I announce these deductions as fact. The family have learnt to roll their collective eyes and to say, in terms, "Yes Dad, fount of all knowledge!" Do you think there might be a smidgen of sarcasm there?
My secret ambition is to design and build our dream home, somewhere with either mountain views of heather, bracken, sheep and rabbits or with views across the sea or an estuary where we can watch the fuliguline visitors.
I can touch my right ear with my right hand. Go on try it, but not like that. Go round the back of your head, under your chin and back up to your ear. Can you do it now? (No liability for personal injury can be accepted) Photos can be supplied, but it's not a pretty sight!
I adore lemon sorbet. I love anything orange, or ginger... oh and treacle sponge with custard. Hang on a minute while I have a moment of wistful rapture. *sigh*
If you put a blade against my heart and forced me to admit to any positive character trait, I guess I would have to say generosity - sharing my time, my abilities and whatever good fortune I might have.
There might possibly be a little tiddly lie in there somewhere - any idea where?
