Award logo won't work, but still the infection spreads

It is probably for the best that I can't for the life of me get the logo thingumy to cut and paste for the lovely Memetastic award kindly bestowed upon this humble blog by Rachel over at Journeys With Autism:

Part of the curse of this award is the obligation to divulge 5 things about one's self, 4 being utter falsehoods. Then I must find 5 other poor souls who have blogs to give this award to. The second part might have to wait awhile, as I am in a state of utter beduddlement in the midst of getting brats ready to return to the school semester in a diverse range of educational institutions that arrange matters to cause maximal inconvenience and cost to both parents and students. Perhaps you tell by my choice of words that I have reverted to pendantic-speak. This is a symptom. I'm perilously close to failing the Turing Test. I'm starting to write like Kevin Rudd speaks. It's not good.

So here are five things that you didn't know about the Lil:

1. I am Oprah's number 1 fan in Australia!

2. I know how to crack a bull-whip, and I'm not afraid to use it.

3. I was Julian Assange's librarian-mentor during the days of his lonely itinerant autodidact youth in Australia.

4. I knew Syd Barrett well back in the 1970s. We were like two peas in a pod. I can't understand why I'm not mentioned in any of the autobiographies.

5. I attribute my great popularity to my skills as a contortionist and a sword-swallower.

Night all!

Hello again!

Decisions have been made about which bloggers I will pass on this award/meme to (a meme being a thing that has many features in common with a viral infection).

Don't know if the Syd Barrett part is true, but if it is my husband would LOVE to have a word with you. :-)

Adelaide Dupont said...

I think the bull-whip one is true.

(And possibly the Sid Barrett one).

The one which stands out clearly to be a lie is the Oprah fan.

Adelaide, after reading my stuff for years you have gotten to know me so well!

Casdok said...

I think the bull-whip too:)

Well, from her deletion of what I thought was my perfectly polite comment, I suspect that Rachel doesn't like me very much. I'll try and participate anyway, but I may have to take instruction from someone on how to post that logo.

Lili Marlene said...

She has a notice on her blog about an over-enthusiastic spam filter thingy, so that might be the problem.

I don't know jack about computers, as you can probably tell from my blog.
