The Dissemination of Thought

Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's intelligent…

10 facts, some fun and a Tommy gun

with 12 comments

Nataly at Snippets and Glimpses has nominated The Dissemination of Thought for the Kreativ Blogger Award, which means that another poor soul has succumbed to my apparent charm and frequently imbecilic, incoherent rantings. Thank you Nataly, we will get you the help that you need to get through this difficult time.

The first condition of accepting the award is that I promulgate 10 things that no one knows about me. Given that my life is a pretty open – albeit coffee-stained, dog-eared – book, I’m doubtful that there are ten unique, unknown facts about yours truly. At any rate, let’s try these on for size:

1. I’m the eldest of 3 boys. I know, my poor mother. Funnily enough, being the eldest doesn’t automatically predicate that you are the most responsible.
2. I once tore a new DVD player to pieces because it stopped working with a disc I wanted still inside. I bet the stupid $30 DVD player didn’t see that coming.

I really, really wanted that disc back.

3. The Dissemination of Thought will be getting its own domain name in 2012.
4. I’ve never touched a cigarette, but I have been known to indulge with the occasional Cuban cigar.
5. Unlike my mother, I firmly believe that ice cream and beer constitute a nutritious meal.
6. I would have enjoyed growing up during the 20s and 30s. Had this been possible, I assume that my chosen career path would have included a fedora, bootlegging and a Tommy gun.
7. My wallet currently contains $16.20 and a $5 casino chip.
8. I dislike magpies with a passion. I wouldn’t say that I’m fearful of them, but I will go well out of my normal way during breeding season to avoid the black and white kamikaze fuckers.
9. I loathe poor spelling and grammar; the way Kreativ is spelt in this award shits me to tears.
10. I just spilt strawberry flavoured milk on my desk. Son of a bitch.

Part two/2/II/dos of acceptance process involves nominating 6 blogs that I believe are deserving of the Kreativ Blogger Award. Following suit on my recommendations when I received the Versatile Blogger Award and 7 x 7 Link Award, I’m not going to give you a run down on the blogs; I follow them and always find the pieces posted amusing, so I’m anticipating that you will, too.

1. Mid Life Ranting
2. spectaculardisaster
3. What Party?
4. Girl on the Contrary
5. Liquorstore Bear
6. thehoneyhouse

A big thank you once again to Nataly at Snippets and Glimpses for the nomination. If you haven’t discovered her blog already, click here and the magic of technology will transport you there. It’s like having your own TARDIS, but not quite as cool.

  1. You certaily are creating attention and good attention lol. This goes to show just how your writing is growing on people and not like a bad fungus. Didn’t you even listen to Mum when she said no food near the computer.

  2. I didn’t know grown men drink strawberry milk. Good for you for admitting that. I’m sure that took courage. Also, what’s a magpie?

    • The only thing better than a strawberry thickshake is a banana and lime thickshake; I know it sounds terrible, but it’s actually amazing.

      This is a magpie. Angry, angry birds.

      • Ahh I gotcha. I never thought I would learn so much about birds through reading others’ blogs.

        The shake sounds disgusting, but I would try it. Luckily, I don’t think they make those here in the US. Oh well 😦

  3. Your “black and white kamikaze fuckers” magpie comment has me seriously laughing out loud. Poor magpies. 😉

    • They’ve earned that description through countless years of dive-bombing and terrorising. Unlike pandas, magpies are forever condemned to the “black and white creatures I despise” category.

  4. I don’t have anything sarcastic or snarky to say. I like your postings 🙂 . I would nominate you for an award I created but it’s kind of insulting. Let me know if you have anyone you want me to insult maybe we can work something out. Meanwhile enjoy!!!

    • I’ll work on a list and get back to you.

      Welcome to The Dissemination of Thought. Please leave your name, number and a short, insulting message after the beep…

  5. We don’t have magpies stateside that I know. And what’s a thickshake? Is that a milk shake? What kind of strawberry flavoring do you put in your milk to make it strawberry milk? Like ovaltine but strawberry flavored?
    Congrats on the award.

    • It’s like a milkshake, only thicker.

      I didn’t put anything in it: I bought it from the supermarket already flavoured. Surely you guys have flavoured milk in the USA? If not, you need to get Obama on the phone, ASAP. This is the stuff I’m talking about.

  6. Yes, we have flavored milk. Organic even! I’m lactose intolerant so I guess I will have to live without. (Sad face)
