The Versatile Blogger Award
Jo over at The Last Drive-in has nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award. The definition of “versatile” according to The Free Dictionary is Capable of doing many things competently. Having varied uses or serving many functions: “The most versatile of vegetables is the tomato” (Craig Claiborne). Variable or inconstant; changeable: a versatile temperament. Biology Capable of moving freely in all directions, as the antenna of an insect, the toe of an owl, or the loosely attached anther of a flow. I like that word “versatile”. I rather dig the idea of being a loosely attached anther of a flow. Thanks for the tip of the hat Jo; you’re the ginchiest! In keeping with the award’s tradition here are seven things you may not know about me.
Just call me Joe…for my friend Jo…
Seven Things You May Not Know About Me…
I have had a long time dream to visit Italy and tour every location Lucio Fulci ever filmed. I would love to make a documentary about Fulci’s career.
I am madly insanely crazy about Kids in the Hall; I got a little misty when the show went off the air. I also have an unhealthy obsession with the Kids in the Hall movie Brain Candy which I think is one of the funniest comedies ever!
When I was a little girl I would play a car crash game similar to Taffy’s in Female Trouble. When we went through the car wash I would pretend the car had plunged into the ocean and was slowly filling with water. I would claw furiously at the windows yelling to be saved.
I watched so many Hammer horror films when I was a kid that I thought every woman had huge boobs. Apparently I once asked my mom when hers were going to grow.
A school guidance counsellor recommended my parents send me to a child psychologist.
One very drunken evening I got into an argument with a woman in a bar and got up on the table and walked through her food.
In the 90s I managed a record store for three years, than I worked in a fancy knife store for a couple of years, than I managed a less fancy knife store for a few years, than another record store, than the music section of a book store. In the 90s I was all about the knives and music.
Part of acceptance is passing on the nomination love to other bloggers so…boom!
