I'm a little behind. Yes, I'm getting my butt into shape. Okay, I'm a little behind in acknowledging the above award. The "Kreativ Blogger Award" was bestowed upon me by our good friend Ian, over at this site, Views From the Bald Patch . And thus, I've been 'tagged'. That way, the authorities can make sure I maintain my blogging curfew.
Now then, here are some rules I'm supposed to adhere to.
1: Thank the blogger who nominated me for the award and provide a link back to their blog. (Thank you, Ian and the link is in the top paragraph.)
2: List seven things about myself that the reader might find interesting. (Yeah right)
3: Tag seven other bloggers, providing links to their blogs and informing them.
I really appreciate you bestowing this award upon me, Ian. Congratulations on you and your family becoming Canadian citizens. Enjoy and go easy on the maple syrup.
Seven fascinating facts about me that will thrill you to the point of joyous celebration.
1: I've had my alleged comedy featured on a radio station named, "talkSPORT".
2: I went to the last ever "Soccer Bowl" in Vancouver, back in 1983.
3: I bumped into two naked ladies in a remote forest in British Columbia. I recall blushing and trying to have a conversation with them. I said, "Oh, don't worry about being naked. I'm not staring or anything..." And with that, I walked back to my campsite.
4: I had my car shown on the local news in Vancouver. My 1964 Plymouth Valiant had been hit and run twice within three months. I got so angry I taped the word "OUCH!" on the side of my car. Much to my surprise, there was the 'Ouchmobile' on the local news.. The newscaster made a fleeting comment about some driver was obviously a little annoyed about something.
5: I used to be a playboy, I mean a paper boy. And no, I wasn't made out of paper. My deliveries of the paper were aided by the use of a bicycle with no handles and two flat tyres (tires).
6: I watched Terry Jacks in a high school lunchtime concert when he was in a band called "The Poppy Family". His then wife, Susan, was the star of the show. And Terry went onto have a bit of fame with that song. "Seasons in the Sun".
7: I had a television crew from the show, "House Doctor", audition me for a potential episode to get my house renovated. They sent me a letter telling me that I had finished second out of all the auditions. The letter stated that they considered my house "Too ambitious of a project." Imagine if my doctor said that to me. The house that was featured was a house in Stoke on Trent. My mother over in Canada told me she had seen that episode. I told her that was the house selected over mine. Oh well, what the heck. Yes, the house did sell about two months after House Doctor visited me.
I shall now provide a list of seven bloggers who will, no doubt, be thrilled with getting this award. However, I want them to know they should feel no obligation to post up the award or make mention of me. You can always just stick the award in your blogging 'trophy cabinet'.
I'm going to forward these awards to bloggers who have few 'followers' and I believe, deserve more awareness.
