For Poetikat

For my good blogging friend Poetikat, here is the promised Garrison Keillor autograph. He is an amazing writer, storyteller, performer and advocate for the arts. No wonder I am a gushing fangirl. Please enjoy.

Thank you for tagging me with the Awesumm picture. I tried to complete this the other night. For some odd reason I uploaded 40 of the pictures, tried to delete them and subsequently deleted the meat of my post. Now, two full graduate class days later, I am returning to the post at hand. Thank you for your patience. In my free time I have been working on a painting, which I hope to post by the week's end.

Poetikat tagged me as an Awe-Summm Queen of All Things. So here are seven things that are awesome about me.
1. I am a collector of worthless, trival knowledge.
2. I am a closet meteorology geek.
3. I returned to school in my thirties and began a teaching career at the age of 45.
4. I daily influence the minds of impressionable adolescents.
5. I have strong opinions and share them with anyone who cares to listen.
6. I can hold my own in a pub with male and female friends.
7. I make the best French toast in the world!
I will ask anyone who would like to participate to steal this awesumm picture and share their own seven awesumm qualities. I would really like to hear from Shazza, Barbara Pask and Winifred on this one. Thanks again Poetikat! You are a true blogging friend! Please visit her blog, I've linked this post directly to her site.
Stay tuned...a half decent painting should follow soon!

First of all, great to see the autograph. It's pretty neat (as autographs go).

Secondly - I love your "Awesumm" list. I'm a collector of worthless trivia too, but I realize just how little I know when some of those Jeopardy players are on.

I beg to differ by the way; I AM THE World's BEST French Toast chef. Let's have a French Toast off. Saturday morning. Right?


P.S. I'll be anxious to see the other lists.

P.S. Also looking forward to the new painting.

Thanks for showing us the autograph, Neetzy. It's quite an interesting signature. Mmmmm, french toast! Care to share your recipe?

Awesome indeed, Neetzy.

And nice to see that GK has - as expected - lovely handwriting.

Please may I be the judge for the French Toast off?
Pretty please?

Shazza said...

Hmmmm, I'll have to think about this one.

I'm glad you waited patiently for the GK autograph!

Jeopardy is one of the two shows I watch on TV. One of these days I'm going on! I can't let this worthless trivia go to waste!
My only secret French Toast ingredient is "love".

No special recipe. "All you need is love" (Beatles, 196?)

Dive, Of course you can be the judge. Where shall we meet? UK, Canada or US?

You are definitely awesumm! I want you to post those awesumm qualities.
