Blog Award....who me?....you shouldn't have.

Have been nominated for this award by the kind misguided gentlemen G over at http://www.bar-science.com/  (a very good blog, one of the best posts that I've ever read is there, all about man laws can be found here http://www.bar-science.com/2011/02/matchstick-puzzle.html )

Well the rules are you have to share 10 things about yourself and pass the award on to another blogger, now Ray Rousell from  Don't throw a 1 http://onelover-ray.blogspot.com/ emailed me last night and said if I didn't nominate him he wouldn't give me a lift to Salute tomorrow morning ( I even gave this man a job and he still hasn't thanked me, he has no shame). There are far better blogs out there and you know who you are but I need to go to Salute tomorrow:D

These are the ones I could actually put in print.

1. I don't drive and never have, probably never will.
2. I am afraid of heights.
3. I am not ginger.
4. I have a clause in my relationship that says if Pamela Anderson knocks on my door I can give her the best 10 seconds of her life.
5. I have cleaned and prepared hundreds of dead people before their journey to the morgue while working in a hospital.
6. Need to eat a potato based product once a day at least.
7. Have been threatened with guns, knives and syringes and other forms of bodily harm more times than I care to remember.
8. A ring from my finger was used by the actor Brendan Gleeson as a prop on the movie set of Spaghetti Slow because props needed one that looked like mine, I was a security guard on the the movie set.
9. Run over by a bus not once but twice.
10. I hold a grudge worse than a sicilian or an Irishman.

Thanks very much.

  16. Was Ray on the buses? Is that how he got the job?

    Great list of factoids. We get a good picture, imagine cupboards full of Smash and now know we should never ever do anything to upset you.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well done, Fran. Thoroughly deserved in my opinion. Good to hear that you don't drive either. I'm not alone after all!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think since you got hit/run over by a bus two times that you should buy a lottery ticket. Or two.

    Congrats on the award.

  19. Congrats man, kudos on the Pam Anderson clause - can I have you lawyers name.
    Cheers, Sausage...

  20. Is saying you´re not ginger the same as saying your not tumeric? Crap joke but it is the end of the week.
    Congrats on the award mate
    Cheers

  21. This was a great post. Enjoyed reading more about you and, I am the same when it comes to potatoes and things made with them. Best food.

    Two times the same bus? I was going to ask the same thing Porky did. Was Ray driving?

    What is a Salute for tomorrow?

    Much congrats on an award. It's perfect for you and well deserved. Very cool.

  22. After picturing you shoveling down potatoes, getting run over by a bus, being threatened with guns, and having your way with Pam Anderson... I am in permanent envy of your manliness. Jesus.

  23. The tragedy is Ray did not need to make a political power play when his Blog is already well-loved in his own write.

    The best outcome would be to catch another pic of him at a convention scratchin his butt like the SELWG one last October, to add to the collection for which he is justly infamous, although at that other one he had 'sex' coming out his ears.

    I've got to go do gut relaxations as number seven brought out my ptsd's. I'll match you on the syringe full of AIDS threat and raise you this: I saw her topless before she fell on her keister. Still do, now. The cop with me said where'd you find this one and stuck her shirt back on backwards on like a straitjacket, I had the right arm, and he seemed to take it worse till the ambulance people came and were even more put out than he was, you know like holy crap where'd you find this one. Then he could laugh at them and point at me.



    These bloody icebreakers do their thing and think it's all good and often it is, I never knew so much about the first Commenter as it brought out more personality than before, but who knows what evil lurks upstream behind the icebergs. After enough of it no wonder our faces fall halfway off, but it does add character. Congratulations on the award and this Blog will get more.

  24. @Whisk: A Salute is one of the largest war-games shows in England.

  25. Cheers! As I continue to read blogs, I inadvertently follow the path of this award, as it keeps moving on to others I already follow.
    Love it.

  29. Still curious about the being run-over thing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Congrats man. Those are some neat facts. How'd you manage to get run over twice? Look both ways, man.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Congratulations! Definitely well deserved and I hope you win. Would say more but I keep thinking of Pam...

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have no doubt that you will win this award, you have a very unique and well written as well as well designed blog. I really think your readership would love to know the stories behind getting run over a bus twice. It sounds to me that you have unwittingly played the role of reluctant warrior in your time as well.

    I hope you guys have a fantastic time at Salute tomorrow. I wonder if anyone's still plays the old Starfleet Battles game anymore. It would be cool to know if there was a kiosk set up at the convention tomorrow for it.

  33. Congratulations on the award..... Would love to go to Salute but it is a bit far away for me. Maybe one day.
    Keep up the great work and watch out for buses.
