The little garage sale that couldn't

Look at that, that is a good looking garage sale, what went much effort to art design the backyard to set up shop for the day and only $7 measly dollars in takings...disappointing really. It's a tough road for a small business. sniff.

Those tricky 8 things

OK, so the lovely Emily has tagged me in this 8 things you don't know about me we go...

1. I like to wear fake glasses. See picture below. I don't need them, I think I have pretty near perfect vision, but I like them as an accessory and maybe as a bit of a disguise, it's like playing dress ups!

2. I somehow still think I'm going to have a novel published one day. It's all there in my head with a few notes scribbled down on scraps of paper, I'll get round to it one day.

3. I'm a list writer. I love writing a list of things to do and the satisfaction of crossing things off.

4. I don't seem like the type but I sometimes imagine the day that Sandy and I will get married, including great detail about the dress, food, location and decoration. I imagine it to be a lucious garden party with tea lights, paper decorations in the trees, fat swathes of fabric draping overhead and Stevie Wonder on the stereo.

5. I love to sing. In the shower, in the car, while I wash the dishes, cooking dinner and scrubbing the bathroom. Favourites include Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and Cat Power. I'm not bad, but I'm scared to sing in front of people (unless there's champagne and a karaoke system around) which is funny seeing as my parents are musicians.

6. My family's a bit mental. I was born on a commune, at Nimbin no less. I also have 9 brothers and sisters... count them - 9! In a gloriously disfunctional jumble of steps and halves.

7. Anyone who works with me will know this one and the furtive looks at this website all day long but here it is... I am obsessed with It's so bitchy and evil - I love it.

8. I'm a bit weird about certain noises, polystyrine rubbing together is just horrible but the worst is the sound of an airoplane toilet flushing - it's painful, I'm not sure what it is, regular flushes are fine, in any case I have to block my ears when I flush an aioplane toilet, call me weird but there it is.

And seeing as I am hugely unpopular in the world of blogging and know only Emily and Leslie this particular thread will have to die with me.
