I was going to start with the words -to be honest- but thought better of it as it suggests that hitherto I have been less than honest. Cutting to the chase, I’m not at all keen on awards in relation to blogs as they seem to remove the basic idea of sharing thoughts and ideas. It would certainly be a surprise to receive an award from one’s bank manager for writing the most convincing and amusing begging letters. Roberto Alborghetti has passed this award on to me, and because he has written some very moving posts, I feel I have to go along with the spirit of the award although the idea of passing this chore along to another 10 unwitting subjects goes against the grain. I also have a feeling that my answers will be incredibly dull as I don’t have “favourite colours” or other favourite things except momentarily.
Questions that I have to answer:
Favourite colour: Today, anything bright
Favourite animal: Ones that aren’t keen to eat me.
Favourite number: Low in age, high in earnings
Favourite non alcoholic drink: Water – on the rocks with a twist
Facebook or Twitter: Twitter
My Passion: I just hate that overused word – like “love” it is used too frequently so becomes meaningless.
Giving or getting presents: It delightful to give but I thoroughly enjoy receiving.
Favourite flower: Impossible to answer – we have tiny winter daffodils on the table which I very much like.
My rationale for the nominee: I’ve been asked to do it:-)
I feel dreadful having given you wonderful people this chore. PLEASE NEVER NOMINATE ME FOR AN AWARD – this isn’t being churlish, but it just takes so much time to write this amount of bollocks:-)
