SKYLARKING has won its first award!


My infinite thanks to Cerebus660 over at The Glass Walking Stick for not only awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award, but also declaring me as being A-OK! (I think he's A-OK, too!) As they say in his (and partly my) country: Cheers, Mate!

So I shall display my one award with pride.

Now there are certain conditions to receiving one of these. First I must list seven random facts about myself, then I have to nominate five others (it's supposed to be fifteen but that's a bit daunting so I'm just going to do five) to receive the same award.

So, here goes:

1. I love women's boots - preferably high heeled ones. I'm a pretty good judge of what kind of boot will look sexy on a woman and I've picked out more that a few winning pairs for my wife.

2. I have met only one of the actors who has played the Doctor -- Colin Baker shortly after he was fired by the BBC. He was as bitter as hell about it.

3. I cannot eat Chicken Cordon Bleu and that is really odd because I love all the ingredients, but put them together and I just can't do it. So if I'm in a restaurant and the menu describes it but doesn't call it Chicken Cordon Bleu I end up ordering a meal that I cannot eat.

4. Harlan Ellison once told me I was weird. This was after an evening where I had bought him dinner and he had spoken to an audience and done a very long autograph session.

5. My favourite sandwich is a Monte Cristo. Coincidently it is also my favourite novel by Dumas.

6. Definitely boxers.

7. I like wine but I prefer beer. The darker the better and enjoyed in a dimly lit place with comfy seats and good company.

And the five I pass this on to:

Dweomera Lagomorpha
(hard to pronounce but always entertaining)

(Mike D's cool and not just because we share a first name and middle initial)

(Purveyor of fun-filled posts as well as being another Michael!)

(An extremely straight-up guy despite not being named Michael)

(Kelly from Buffalo always has something interesting to say)

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

Hey Thanks!

I've not received an award for anything since I was in middle school when I had an art display at Brenau university.. I made a book, called it "Book" and they all went nuts over it.. was my first inkling of the dreaded Emperor's new clothes contagion vector.

I'll do my best to stay entertaining.
