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?
