hello 800 followers, how do you do??
Every 100 followers i do a get-to-know-me post . . . this time i'm scratching up things i do believe i've never mentioned on my blog before. Most are in line with my accident prone & self effacing nature, i can be serious but that's just not as much fun!!
I was the lead actress in a friend's University final assignment - she directed a movie masterpiece based on a romance over coffee - for her communications degree. I couldn't keep a straight face or remember my lines. I don't even drink coffee & looking longingly at a guy i just met, over a steaming brew . . . impossible. My on screen lover had this awful wig on & his facial expressions . . . oh dear, there was a lot of 'cut' while i composed myself. I also did the voice overs in a sound studio, think: breathy. Somehow the movie was edited into a winning piece of 'cinema' & my darling friend got her degree, went overseas to a flourishing career with Andrew Lloyd Webber.
I've never made a photo worthy macaroon. Tastey but ugly.
When my son was a toddler, i lost him in the house. I eventually found him naked, on the trampoline in the front garden, sound asleep. I took a photo for his 21st birthday!!
I actually wet my pants on a date. My boyfriend didn't believe i was really that busting & fiddled around with my house keys . . . i burst into tears as i wet my pants on my parent's door step. He still married me.
In my final year of school, my mother ran me over in her car, outside the train station.
I'm a total green thumb, yet over-love succulents & kill them. En masse. Massacre.
I broke my nose as a child by swimming into the pool wall really fast, nose first.
I'm allergic to bees. I've been stung several times & swell severely around the bite. We had bee laden wisteria all around our pool area. My parents never thought to cut it down, just treat my stings!!
My first car was a Ford Laser, a bubbly blue hatch back, i bought from my brother. I loved her until the day she was stolen. I replaced her with a Ford Laser, an older version white 5 door, i bought from my sister-in-law. We traded her in when we were pregnant with twins, for a Ford Falcon. My husband had a Ford Falcon before we bought the Toyota Landcruiser (when we got married & still have 15 years later.) There was also a Mitsubishi Mirage & Jeep Cherokee in the mix, before we bought our first-ever-brand-new-shiney car this year. She's magnificent & will be with us for at least a decade. Long range diesel people mover, we're all set for the farm commute. The next car we purchase will be for our eldest daughter in a few years, eeeep. Ford maybe??
Finally, this is where my blogging happens . . . my first desk top computer since last millennium. I have a habit of breaking laptops (burning out the engines) so i figured, i don't need a portable computer anyway, i'll go big screen Mac & i love it.
Thanks for following, love Posie
