It's All About ME!

I saw this on Susie's site so I thought I'd tag myself. To be honest I am still not feeling great and fear I have possibly lost my sense of humour forever. I hope to perk up soon and be able to blog like a blogger should. Until then here is a MEME list.

(that was really hard and I didn’t do a great job)

Three of your favourite songs.
-Red Guitar – David Sylvian

Three things you want in a relationship.

Two truths and one lie (you have to guess which is which).
-I am a picky eater

I could go on for hours…

Meet a great man? Excuse me? What about Pablo, hmm? Sheesh. Or even possibly moi?

Oh I know you meant it like that, but still.

Glad you like my dress..

I'm SO with you on the stubble/strong foremarms issue.

Susie said...

Well, yes, it IS all about you! I like your kids' names. I think you're not a sore loser. (If that's not right, then you're a picky eater.)

Von Krankipantzen said...

Fueltank-you, my dear, are taken.

tabularasa-nothing like a strong forearm. Yummy! When is the wedding date?

Susie-you are right. The lie is about being a sore looser. I am a very happy looser.

Von Krankipantzen said...

Suie-I forgot to say I am glad you like my kid's names. My mom absolutley FREAKS at the thought of naming a kid Beatrix.

Dear darling ass mistress,

Guess who! Back from T.O. Why I am not on your list of favourite destinations, I just don't know. Hope you are well!Saw Fluevog's, it is a very pale shade of its former self...more on that later. I think you need to put a John Flueflog story on your blog for your fans....I know they will love the nuclear insanity we were enslaved to!! ciao P xx

23rd July - scary mary or what?

I never thought that one day I'd have to make "executive decisions" on flowers and shoes...

whfropera said...

I am all about the stubble/strong hands thing -I absolutely SWOON over my guy's hands. hair, eyes...ok, all of it, but I'm with ya.
I've already explained the Rollins thing - as my buddy says "you HAVE to like him, otherwise he will come to your house and crush you like a bug - his neck is the size of my THIGH"
not mine, my bud's.
sushi=yes. I consider it an essential food group.
you are the only other person I know that has even HEARD of The Normal - there is A great cover of "Warm Leatherette" out - thats it - you're getting a mix CD.

Beatrix - what a great name! Beatrix Potter is the only one I've heard of. I like names for kids that are not only unique, but that will also look good on a diploma or resume someday.

How are you feeling on this Manic Monday Morning?

Von Krankipantzen said...

Pablo-you got your wish. You are not a destination because you are going with me on all my trips.

Tabularasa-that is coming up quick! My friend who lives in London is getting married in Nov. She is getting married in Cyprus though. I can't go as I will be in radiation therapy then. It breaks my heart - we have been friends since we were 5 years old. I was supposed to be the maid of honour. Damned Cancer!

whfropera-I feel blessed to know of The Normal. Do you mean the Grace Jones cover? HR has some kind of forearms. Swoon indeed! Thanks for the mix-can't wait!

HDL-I will have to tell my mom there is somebody else who likes Beatrix. I think it is sweet yet dignified. You are right, it would look good on important documents. I am feeling much better today, thank you. Almost good enough to go out and do something.

Von Krankipantzen said...

mrtl-Oh yes please! Catch that bouquet for me. I need a man who will hold my hand during radiation. Oh wait! Maybe that is not a good idea.
