Having been tagged by Stucco, who was tagged by Judith, who was tagged by crankster, but since Judith doesn't have a linky thingie to crankster I can't continue this sort of Biblical "...and Spanky begat Dingwop who begat Blinderstiffer, who begat...."

And for tagging? Since I'm a roight barstard too, let's tag

Vulgar Wizard, since she likes these sorts of things

Lucky Star, who never lacks for good blogging material

Leesepea, my former Talkies Tuesday compatriot

Nancy Dancehall, since she has nothing else to do now that she's snowed in,

Mickey Glitter, who sent me a beautiful (and unexpected!) Christmas card

Yes, I suck out loud. However, I'm not above ignoring tags, and wouldn't cry if you did the same. Okay, maybe I'd cry, but I'd blame it on onions.

Vulgar Wizard for some reason suggested I come work for her in your miserable environment. I'm taking it that they don't do drug screening there? Maybe I could get a waterfront place up on rickety stilts just in time for a hurricane? Guh...

Alright, alright, played along.

Irrelephant said...

Drug testing? Er...maybe you ought to stay there in the Northwest then. I haven't had a spliff in years.

Yay leesepea! I knew you'd come through for me!
