16 Random Things: No. 8, What Cartoon Character Do I Most Resemble?


Some time back I was tagged on my flickr site to reveal 16 Random Things About Myself. I was absolutely thrilled. Finally, I was Asked!
I wished it was 100, nay, 200 Random Things. In fact, I might decide to  keep the Random Thingy going indefinitely. 
Some people may feel that my attitude reveals a Chronic Case of Oversharing or maybe a Thoroughly Undeserved Sense of Self-Importance. Or Rampant Ego Inflation. Or a Desperate Need for Adulation & Acknowledgment. Or Flagrant Low-Self-Esteem. 
I'm probably all of those things & much much more. 
But the Cartoon character that I feel  most sums me up, is Donkey in 'Shrek'.  You know, he's the one jumping up & down on the spot at the back of the group that shouts out to Shrek, 'Pick Me! Pick Me!' 
I just want to be noticed. And to tell anyone who'd listen the Story of My Life in a Thousand Chapters. 
So I've just revealed Random Thing Number 8. If you could be bothered reading the first seven, just click on my flickr photostream.

Oh, you may be wondering why I posted that pic of me lovingly gazing up at the word 'Fearless'. It's because that's what I'm aiming to be. I don't want to be a Evil Knieval or a Harry Houdini or the type of person who would do my own stunts in a film or anything, but someone who was Quietly Fearless. 
Wouldn't that  be Fantastic?

Never having seen Shreck I can't comment on the resemblence but I do like the Fearless Photo.

Don't send me to places like flickr, I spend to darned much time on the computer as is.

I admit I had to go find out those other things about you tho. And read some comments. And look at some other people's stuff, and, and, and.

I also never really saw Shrek, but I have a hard time envisioning you as the Donkey. And aspiring to be fearless is something I guess we all have to do these days.You have to be fearless just to turn on the news. It seems like you are doing a pretty good job of it!
