My first and last ever Tag...

I hate Tags. They always strike me as something a blogger does when there's nothing else to write about. But, other than the work I have been doing for The Mill (or not be doing depending on my procrastination levels) to get it satisfactorily ready for the largest one day film festival in the world, Tropfest, I have nothing else to write about...

So as asked for by Ticharu here are 9 things people might find interesting.

9. I rarely take myself seriously enough to achieve anything or convince anyone else I can achieve anything. When I do achieve something, it's a nice surprise for everyone.

8. I am ambidextrous. I am equally illegible with both hands, and feet for that matter, when I write. I carry a notebook with me everywhere. My notebooks need a decoder ring. Seriously, I'm sure it's a good story or idea, I just need to know what the hell is written on the page.

7. I would like to produce and/or direct at least one film in every genre. Which makes Ang Lee my favourite Director to date as he's well on the way to proving it can be done.

6. When I was in my pre-teens, all I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a Renaissance Man or Polymath. I was an odd child. I'd still like to be one but now in my adulthood I'd be lucky if I considered myself a Philomath. Although this desire is what lead me to do film as you need to be proficient at many artistic and technically endeavours to be considered average.

5. I feel sorry for people who perpetuate the rediculous notion that an adult producing shows for children should appear to be as innocent as a child in the public arena. Being a Wiggle would suck, I've seen them asked adult questions in interviews and they're afraid to answer them in case it hurts their marketability. I believe expressing adult opinions to other adults has no bearing on the content of a show produced for children as those views have absolutely nothing to do ones ability to use their imagination in the same way they did when they were a child.

4. I think Marijuana is one of the most powerful emotional tools humans have ever encountered but I take an anti-drug stance on it's use because I've found it is a very rare person indeed who has even the slightest notion how to use it properly. Looks up, see I'm not allowed that opinion if I produce shows for children... weird, OK, OK, [robotic voice] Drugs are bad [/robotic voice] whatever!

3. I have no formal qualifications but have regularly been chosen for jobs over people who have completed many years of study. People are regularly surprised when they find out that I'm an uneducated buffoon. That surprise soon turns to anger if they find out I earn more than them and all their fancy skool'n.

2. They say there's 6 degrees of seperation between you and any other person on earth. There is a maximum of 1 degree seperation between myself and the 10 richest and/or most powerful people in the world. I find the notion humorous, particuarly because it has no effect on my life whatsoever. I was born blue-collar and I'll probably die that way (or at least a whiter shade of blue). I am not an opportunist. Which probably makes me more than a little silly considering that I've been at a dinner where one of Australias richest individuals asked the waitress how much she owed on her mortgage and then wrote her a cheque for that amount as the tip. But the people who I have encountered who are opportunists make me cringe. No thanks.

1. Hmmm, what else, I find myself in the right place at the right time so often I sometimes forget it's unusual, wait, no, ummm, I talk to animals as if they were human and believe if you listen closely they answer back, wait, no, ummm, My bank account number is... 1040xxxxxxxx HA! You wish!

Apparently we're meant to tag other people, so I'm tagging myself, looks up, that was quick, I've already done it, cool, I tagged myself, looks up, that was quick, I've already done it, cool, I tagged myself, looks up... I'm sure this is going to create a tear in the space time continuum. Please put on safety googles and stand back when the universe implodes.

After re-reading that I can honestly say that my hate for tags has not dimminished one bit, what a load of rubbish...

Take: 38

Jin! Young lady! I'm shocked! How dare you try to make a joke about sex in relation to a childrens TV show. What is wrong with you? Oh, that's right, you were crushed by a mountain of Biscotti. I hope the head trauma isn't permanent.

Of course I missed you... well... no... um... yeah... Yeah... I missed you.

No, it was very interesting. I was laughing because for hating the tag, you posted rather extensive responces. Notice how terse mine were? :)

What I don't like about these things are the pressure to do them, or the feeling of being excluded if you want to do them. But I did enjoy learning (or re-learning) things about you.

You should write a post about what you are thankful for, because today is Thanksgiving, and I don't care that you are Australian, you still should.

Okay, it's not Nov 23rd there, but it is here. So there.

Well, the 23rd was the start of the Ashes. Best contest on the Cricketing calendar. So I'm thankful that the Aussies are currently whipping some English hide up in Brisbane.

But mostly I'm thankful that I have a lovely friend like you who comments on my blaaaarg. Happy Thanksgiving Ms A. *mwah*

I'm commenting before Hippo? Ha! A first time for everything!

First off, I have... let's say a vendetta... against the Wiggles.

The nightmares still persist.

Ham Twat,

Sorry about that, I didn't realise there was a distinction. Both make me laugh. Can I be wombat twat?

I have updated your link accordingly.

Gyrobo! I have shamed Hippo. Not sure why or how but apparently I have. As a result I think he's too scared to come over and say Hey.

As to the Wiggles, let's not say "a vendetta", let's call it what it really is... a crush on Geoff. But I understand the nightmare, there's only so many times you can shout "Wake-up Geoff" before he insults your prowess and/or you call an Ambulance.

Did you widen your template?
(NO! That's not slang for that PERV!)

Seriously, something's different?

That's better!!

Hey wait!!! That's supposed to be of YOUR sexual fantasies. Meaning you were supposed to write "My" instead of "Your"!! Oh forget it, let's just have sex.

Yeah, changed my mind. But you enjoy the cricket there hon.

You have a cricket? I've heard that they make nice pets, but that chirping while I'm trying to sleep drives me nuts! Still, I suppose if you built them a special cage you could put them out at night. Something with real strong bars because crickets are stronger than they look! Little bastards!

Whipping hide eh! Didn't realise you were a bit erm, erm, oh never mind!

Our time will come. A Test Series is not like a one dayer, much more tactical and patience is required .....

Jin,

Yeah, I was updating my links and thought I'd fix the weird thing blogger had been doing to my template. That did involve 'widening it', yes.

PS. You're the PERV! ;)

JLee, I'm sure you don't mean the Australian Mole, it's quite something else indeed.

Mole: This red-necked nocturnal creature is known for its inability to communicate at low frequencies or without alcohol, its large hair, and attrocious dress sense including a Gosford skirt (named such as the town of Gosford is in close proximity to the Entrance) and Ugg boots. It seems to frequent dive bars, B&S Balls, the back seat of any vehicle and jail cells.

Example: Take a gander at that sheila. What a mole!

Yes Axx, I'm definitely into a bit a S&M... especially when England is our bitch ;)

Well, as long as your tactics include a thrashing then England is on target to achieve their Ashes goals. I'm glad you've got patience though, we wont be returning the Ashes for another 20 years methinks.

Yesterday arvos session was fantastic. Collingwood deserved his century but as an Aussie it was nice to see it snatched away. Pray for rain Axx, pray for rain!

The cricket didn't even get to drinks in the morning session.

What a pitiful English performance. I hope they put up more a fight at Adelaide.

Blogger JLee mused...

hehe, well, I learned a new phrase. I was referring to the skin tag, a gross mole type growth, but I guess it could apply to both definitions as you'd want to excise both from your presence. (and possibly biopsy them?)
