Me! It is all about me, dammit!

I got this from Duff, and she gave me "h".

This is how it works: Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation of what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

1. Health! Drinks all round to mine, long may it last

2. Harold. My cool grandad, who is dead now, but when he was alive he rocked.

3. Hippopotamus. I bought one for Finn today, so he could make a zoo. I hope it gets along with the camel, bear and rhino.

4. Hallelujah Picassos. Bodega. Late. Drunk. Lovely.

5. Hotere. Because when I was 17 I managed to get my hands on one of his prints, and it still has pride of place.

6. Heliotrope. I'm just going to look up what it means... Damn, it raced into my head sounding scientific, but relates to several things. I was going to cleverly relate it to Glen, who is a scientist, but now I can't.

7. Hana. My sister. Long may she reign!

8. Hutt News. The paper, which arrived today. I can say without word of a lie that it is better than the Western News.

9. Honey. A nasty thing from a bee. Who eats food made by insects? Ergghh. Except it is very good in that rice bubble caramel thing. So I'm not really a committed honey-hater.

10. Holiday. Now. Please.

Ask me for a letter! Go on! I dare you! You can use exclamation marks today! No-one will judge you! It is very liberating! But never use them again!

alright throw me a letter it beats writing about politics.

The Editter said...

I want a letter! I will use exclamation marks after every word I begin with that letter! Liberating and frustrating at the same time!

Martha said...

Red, you get the might M. Go forth and use it wisely.

Editter, you get the mighty W. Don't use it wisely, make it your bitch.

David said...

Finn has his own hippo? Well cool!

Does it live in his room, or do you send it out to the garage at night time?

Guinness_Girl said...

I want a letter, too!

"I'm not really a committed honey-hater." Heh. Funny girl, you.

Martha said...

David, we haven't got a garage, so the hippo has to wallow in the garden.

Guninness, you get P. I look forward to seeing what you make of it (he he panties)

Peter said...

re number 4 - have a lookee here...
always had fun playing at bodega, freindly staff, great crowds, you included.

Guinness_Girl said...

THanks for the P! That was fun fun fun. I forgot to tell you congrats on your recovery! Was worried about you!

Oy Vey said...

Lay it on me. But please no U or X please.

red said...

done :)


Martha said...

Peter, way ahead of you dude, I've been a friend of the Picassos, oh for like a fortnight.

Guinness Girl, thanks! It was strangely fun to do, maybe because I needed something to write... And thanks for the congrats. I'm fucking relieved to be honest, I wasn't ready to get old yet.

Oy Vey, you can have J. A quirky letter, make of it what you will.

Red - brilliant. With pictures and everything, I'm very impressed.

Oy Vey said...

J....THANKS! I will return...

duff said...

you did a fantastic job, martha...though i'm beginning to think maybe i made it a little too easy for you ;~)

stephen said...

What the hell. Gimme letter.

Martha said...

Oy Vey, good work with a tricky letter.

Duff, actually it was fun, and easy - both things I'm well known for.

Stephen, hmmm, you can have 'F', for it is a feisty wee letter, a vixen of the alphabet.

Jules van Cruysen said...

Dear Mrs Wanda,
Can I please have a letter?

Love Jules

Martha said...

Dear Jules,

You may. Your letter is 'C'. Use it wisely.
