It Was Bound To Happen Sometime

One of the things I abhor about facebook is the ridiculous questionaires that 'friends' suggest you take.  This is the reason you find me on facebook about once every month or so.  So imagine my disdain when I discovered that my fellow Blogosians have their own version called a Meme.  Well I've been tagged in one entitled the "Kreativ Blogger Award" (I'm clearing a place on the mantle) and while very notion makes me reel, I've decided play along.  This time.  Following are the criteria to be satisfied.

1.  Thank the person who nominated you for this award.

Thank you, TJB from the always informative Stirred Straight Up With A Twist.

2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.

It's a real honey, ain't it.

3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.

See criteria #1.

4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.

a.  I was a child model for 2 years when my family lived in Niagara Falls, NY

b.  I have been cursed with the "sports fag" gene (not as far as participation goes, though) and love watching any and all sports, excepting  hockey.  My favorites are tennis and football.  My team is the Washington Redskins which means that I have been heartbroken for many, many years.  Sing it with me:

c.  I once went around the world with a pop music tour as a Wardrobe person in the employ of an artist who's name starts with "M" and ends with "adonna".

d.  To make a gag work in a movie, I once had to fit Rodney Dangerfield with a strap-on dildo.

e.  I have been very unlucky in love, and more than compensated with spectacularly loving friendships.  At this stage, I actually love being single.  Being single on a grander scale, I'm the only member of my family still living.

f.  At age 50, I still have a 28" waist and have never been to a gym.  Fast metabolism and lots of speed in my youth.

g.  In February, I will be clean and sober for 28 years.

5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers and post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.

Cafe Muscato

Chateau Thombeau

MJ at Infomaniac

Donna Lethal at Lethal Dose

Poseidon's Underworld

Kabuki Zero

Stephen at Post Apocalyptic Bohemian

6. Someone forgot to include a sixth rule.

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

Doubt it.  If they're not regularly checking in with me, let 'em find out the same way I did.  On the streets.

Oh, darling, thanks for thinking of moi, and I do love more each day, but I just do not participate in the whole meme thing. I simply can't.

Your patience and understanding in this matter are greatly appreciated.

I completely understand, and someday if I ever achieve your tenure and status, I shall take your same position. Believe it.

savannah said...

28 years clean and sober in hollywood? congratulations, sugar! but, i have to admit, i am incredibly jealous - 50yo with a 28" waist? y'all are too divine, honey1 ;~D xoxox

FelixInHollywood said...

Why thank ya dahlin and welcome aboard. C'mon in and make yourself at home. There's always sweet tea in the ice box!

jason said...

my goodness...dazzled!

I aspire to your peace of mind about being single....your waist size...but I do still hope one day to at least achieve your child model status.

kabuki zero said...

Yours shall be a cruel and unusual punishment. And yes, it will be public. My opinion of tjb has suffered a serious blow. style maven my ass, the pretenders always slip up in the end.
ps that logo is scrapbook-hideous and should be burned.

FelixInHollywood said...

I can tell you're flattered by the way you criticize. You've always been that way.

MJ said...

Mother of all that is holy, will you LOOK at that butt ugly logo!

I refuse to participate in any meme that does not adhere to the principles of good design.

I can imagine TJB clenching his teeth (and possibly other bits) when forced to post that gawdawful logo. Did someone put a gun to his head? Why, TJB? Why?

I might possibly consider doing it if kabuki participated but thankfully he has the good sense and style not to touch it with his ten foot pole.

Thank you for thinking of me but I’m sitting this one out.

*flounces off*


MJ said...

*returns briefly for cameo appearance*

In February, I will be clean and sober for 28 years.

I'll drink to that.

FelixInHollywood said...

There's no 'I' in team, people.

normadesmond said...

sports fag.....oy. we'll try to overlook this indiscretion.

MJ said...

*awakens in middle of night from logo nightmare*

*bitch slaps Felix and TJB for sleep interruption*

Stephen said...

Thanks for the great honor... I have filled in my answers, but you had set a very high standard.

I love your answers, but the waist size... oh my! When we were first a couple, the Husband & I had just 1 wardwrobe & shared all our clothing. The Husband still has a 29''waist 30 years later. I filled out a bit.

Donna Lethal said...

I can't do the meme either, but the thing that shocks me most is not the clean and sober in Hollywood, nor Rodney's dildo, nor the child model, nor your waist size (having met you) but the SPORTS FAG! Good heavens! I'm having a Margaret Dumont moment.

MJ said...

Donna: I have never met nor even heard of this creature known as the "sports fag".

Aside from its 28-inch waist, could you describe it to us?
