Hello Strangers !
I've been a bit absent from the blogging world for the last couple of weeks. Real life stuff getting in the way as it does.
And having nothing to complain about.
Actually I've had a bit of a "count my blessings" time, sad things happening for other people that make me realise how full my glass really is. The result of that being that I have two funerals to attend this week.
Anyway I'm not here looking for sympathy, but it's going to be a strange week.
I actually just counted and I have eleven posts that I started and never finished, after my idea to not publish immediately in case I wanted to add to them later. So at some point you might get to read about : my first love : the night I was possessed by my dead mother : being a parent to a mixed race child : humour versus racism : ANOTHER letter to Dave : a mans guide to Internet dating sites : an idea I had about the Olympics, and a few others.
No wonder I got distracted and confused.
However to get myself back in the habit I am going to join in with something called Sunday Stealing that I saw over on Magical Mimis blog. I only recently started following her, but she takes part in quite a few of these sharing posts, and I like the idea behind this one.
So here we go. I'll put the link at the bottom if any of you lot want to join in too.
1. Have you ever peed your pants as an adult?
No, not really, but maybe from laughing too much. But when Son was 12 we went to Jamaica and as a result of sunstroke and drinking a pint of fresh orange juice in one go I did manage to poo my pants. We were there for a month, Son met family and we went to all the tourist spots and also some out of the way places, we met amazing people and had wonderful experiences. We get home and a few days later bumped into a friend of mine in the shop. She asked Son if he'd had a good time...
"Yup. . my Mum shit herself".
2. Who do you have a celebrity crush on now?
Vin Diesel. But it's not a crush it's real love. And he will agree once I have
3. Would you date someone you met online?
Have done. A few times. It's not something I'd recommend. This POST was about the most recent. Click the "dating" label if you want to read about more
4. Do you wear underwear always?
No, I take them off when I get in the bath. However I have to keep my bra on otherwise it's like walking around with two half deflated airbags up my jumper.
5. Do you hate yourself at times?
Never. But I do despair about myself for my habit of calamity following me around.
7. Do you like dirty movies?
8. Could you believe Josha Ledet was voted off Idol?
Who ? I'm English, have no idea who he is. But if he was voted off he can't of been that good.
9. When was the last time that you bought a car?
Never. I don't drive. In the interest of public safety.
10. Have you ever been camping?
Many times. I'm a hippy at heart, I spent a lot of my youth going to
I'd take my washing machine and fridge if I could but on account of question 9 I have to get a lift with someone else and I don't think they'd appreciate it.
Plus I don't know where I'd plumb it in in the middle of a field.
11. How many times a day do you go on facebook?
I loathe facebook. I actually deleted it for a while, and when I reactivated it I defriended a lot of the idiots who post about utter crap. I say I keep it because there are a few people on there who I would otherwise not hear from, but then I think if the only way I hear from them is facebook then they obviously don't matter that much.
Still it's good for
12. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?
Super 8. Great film. Right now I am just about doing a question one (again) waiting for Prometheus.
13. Have you ever worried that you'd cut off a limb?
I did once manage to slice the top of my thumb off while slicing a lemon. There have been times when I've been tempted to remove an appendage from a man. But none of them have been big enough to be called a limb.
14. Where did you get your last email from?
A friend I met on blogger, he lives in Canada. I love how some people have become what is the modern equivalent of pen pals, as a child I had a few pen friends around the world and I loved writing letters.
15. Favorite website?
If I put them all here I'd probably crash blogger. Impossible to pick a favourite, but THIS is one that never fails to make me answer yes to question one.
16. Are you down with ghetto?
Am I what ?
17. Will the world end in fire or ice?
If I knew the answer to that then I would be the almighty being.
Wait . . . Ummm . . . It'll end when I say so.
18. Do you believe in the afterlife?
Yup. I'm not religious, don't believe in god, but I have had enough experiences to know without question that death is not the end. I actually think it might be the beginning.
19. Would you be upset if facebook stopped working?
No. As long as I had time to save some of the photos that I have on there.
And it will be very interesting to watch all the addicts running around like headless chickens.
Best joke of the week :
Why did facebook go public ?
Because even they couldn't work out the new privacy settings.
20. How did you start your blog?
Long story. When I started it I had just had the worst two years of my life, and I read someone elses that was pretty much the story of their life. I figured that writing about all the crap that had gone on with me would be cathartic, but it never happened. The second post I wrote was about Internet Dating, and it just went from there. Now - as I am completely over all the bad shit - I think that this often sarcastic, sometimes funny, occasionally rude, always honest way of writing is actually an accurate reflection of the real me.
I have a few real life friends who read this, they tell me that my writing "sounds" just like I do in person. In fact a few weeks ago another friend found my blog ( he was looking up gig dates for Underworld and my blog title is actually a lyric from one of their tunes), he sent me the link saying I would like it "because whoever the author is she clearly loves Underworld too and she sounds just like you".
So yeah, if you're still reading Steve - now you know why :)))))

Have a great week people :)
