The main rule of this Award acceptance is to list seven things about myself, apart from what you already know about me by reading the ABOUT THE AUTHOR tab at the top of this blog.
You mean you've never read the ABOUT THE AUTHOR information? Well, go and do it now and you'll learn a little about me ... if you're interested that is.
Anyway ... where was I ... oh ... list 7 things about myself.
Well, I like to wear colorful shirts - mauve, purple, turquoise, orange, yellow ... that kind of thing. Also a bright blue or bright green tie with pink flowers or yellow daisies spotted all over it. A large feathered hat and an orange or green jacket and trousers. That's four things you know already ... shirt, tie hat and suit.
When I walk down the street people usually point at me and talk quietly. No doubt they're saying I'm quite elegant and my attire is quite versatile. Hence the award, I suppose.
I like to wear different colored socks - red and blue, or yellow and orange, green and mauve. This is to remind me which one is the left and right foot.
I'm very cautious in life. I always look left and right and left and right again before crossing my legs.
I'm very superstitious too. I never ever walk under a black cat. Bad luck and all that, you know. And I do worry so much about my horrorscope! I read it every day in my weekly magazine "Seven Weak Days" and oh ... the news about what is to happen to me can be so debilitating I tell you.
The other day my horrorscope said that I'll feel very tired and run down ... but they'll soon catch the motorist who ran me down.
So I went to see the doctor. The poor chap was ill; and you must always visit the sick don't you think? Anyway ... he got up from his bed and asked me what I wanted. I told him I was rather tired. He said he could see the tire marks all over my suit.
So he gave me a bottle of vitamins and asked me to take one on Monday and then skip Tuesday, one on Wednesday and skip Thursday, one on Friday and skip Saturday and so on ...
When I went home I was so weak and tired and debilitated that I could hardly open the bottle of vitamins. So I went back to the doctor and he opened it for me. He said "Take one Monday and skip Tuesday, one Wednesday and skip Thursday and so on ... Come and see me when you've finished the vitamins!"
A few weeks later I went to see the doctor again in his hospital bed. He asked me if the vitamins worked. I replied the vitamins were OK but all that skipping nearly gave me a heart-attack.
Anyway ... where was I again? I lost my train of thought ... oh yes horrorscopes. There's twelve of them you know ... Pisces, Libra and so on ... A friend of mine was born under Taurus the Bull ... and the bull was quite surprised I tell you.
OK ... enough of that.
Let me end by thanking you for this Award and by passing it on to all of you reading this. Because if you've read on up to here then you're quite as versatile as anyone I know ... I gave up reading this post ages ago !!!
