Suckered

Posted on Wednesday, March 12, 2008 in Awards!, Jobs, memememememe

Things might be quiet around here for a while.

I’m a community volunteer, see, and there really aren’t enough of us around, surprisingly enough.  So, It’s been put upon me to create posters, mail-shots, invitations and press releases to advertise an upcoming beach-clean.  Seriously, how on earth does one rally enthusiasm for picking up old nappies and hypodermic needles?

You know what else?  A local tattoo artist has noticed my blog and has got it into his head that I might design a website for him in return for certain… umm… ‘favours’.  There are certain members of my family that are particularily skilled in the technological department, but unfortunately, I’m not one of them.  I tried to learn HTML, I really did, but my efforts always end up swamped by apathy.  This means my web-site building is on a par with your average 10-year old’s.  Seriously though – have you ever tried to decypher a page of html script?  It’s like trying to read Chinese writing, unless you happen to be Chinese, of course. 

Still, I’ll give it a go, then post up a link so you can all have a good laugh.

I know I have a few memes to catch up on… Terence McDanger in his evil ways has suckered me with that damn ‘Seven things about you’ meme again.  I feel that if I don’t continue the chain I won’t go to heaven, so it’ll find it’s way from the dark corners of my brain and onto this here blog soon enough.

The other meme is from Jefferson Davis and his lovely cotton (poo-soaked) socks.  It’s not really a meme, but instead an award which tickles my insides like Guinness drunk out of a bottle with a straw:

 But why?:

Art Prize and Award
“This prize has arisen from the daily visits that I dedicate to many blogs which nourish me and enrich me with creativity. In them I see dedication, creativity, care, comradeship, but mainly, ART, much art. I want to share this prize with all those bloggers that entertain me day to day and to share this prize with those who enrich me every day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few, the people I will name today deserve this prize, as do the very long serious list of bloggers I also enjoy to read, but I will name the first 10 and will leave the rest of the work to all the bloggers that visit other’s blogs and are nourished by them.”

Awww!  Thanks Jeffo!

I spread this appreciation to: The humblest of housewives, the craftiest of knitters, a cabbie most solid, a photographer most universal, and the most talented of scribblers.  People, your arts inspire me and scratch my proverbial itch.

Seeing as I have the opportunity and we’re sort of on the subject, I would also like to publish a rare MySpace link.  Clare Hartigan’s art is truly awe-inspiring, and well worth a visit.

I’ll be back soon, if my brain doesn’t overheat first.

    I noticed you said you were mailing shots. Would you please mail me a couple of double shots of Jamesons? Please?
    ;)

    Aw shucks Miss K8ie… thanks a million! ;-)

  4. You’ll be glad to know that me socks are no longer poo soaked. :) Thank you for being such a talented and very humorous lady. :)

    Brian, you of all people should know that those were not the sort of shots I was referring to. They ARE going out to politicians, you know… so, the shots I’m referring to are those from a Desert Eagle.

    Roy, Deborah and Jefferson, you’re deadly. Back at youz!

    Haha . . suckered . . me to! I volunteered for the Heart Foundation door knock appeal this month. Only in my street mind but now my neighbours all hate me because I’m selling out on them! I think I’ll just write a cheque and pretend I did the door knock!

    As for html . . I’m with you . . .I actually do maintain our work website but I don’t need any html except for pictures and links. Perfect! You need a little geek to help you out! I’ve got a couple I can spare!

  7. K8 says:

    Baino! Fair play, sista… I ain’t no good at knocking on doors, I had to do something similar last year but quit after two doors! Couldn’t stand the pressure of asking people for money, mind you it wasn’t going towards anything as worthwhile as a Heart Foundation.

    I have a html book for feckin’ eejits here which is helping enormously, mind you, having to learn CSS at the same time is quite bleedin’ challenging!
