Hello Double Entendre

Thought I’d play one of these games just the once and thankfully I’ve found a good one. I’ve been awarded the versatile blogger award by Ronan over at Filmplictity


Thank the person/people who gave you the award.
Share seven things about yourself.
Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reasons! (in no particular order).
Contact the blogs you picked and let them know about the reward.

So to get it out of the way

Number 1

One of the first movies my parents ever bought for me on VHS was Batman Returns, a fact I’ve never understood because I was roughly 5 at the time and despite it being wildly inappropriate, they had no problem with it. Ironically however I was never allowed watch movies based on the occult or magic till I was in secondary school.

Number 2

I had never seen Dirty Dancing, Footloose or most of those 80s dance movies until about 6 months ago. They never had any appeal for me, they still don’t now after sitting through them.

Number 3

After most of the college balls or major occasions I’ve been to over the years, I repeatedly find myself waking up in shrubbery.

Number 4

I’ve never learnt how to take a nice photo. Literally, if you look for any, I at best look uncomfortable but most likely, like an asshole.

Number 5

As embarrassing as it is, one of the first CDs I bought myself (I’d been given plenty of good music) was the soundtrack to ER. I used to grab my swivel chair and slide down the long hallway in our old house as if it was an emergency and I was Dr Benson.

Number 6
One of my goals in life is to go to a roller disco.

Number 7
Everytime I look at a side profile of Sarah Jessica Parker, I think I’ve found Shergar.

So thinking of some people to tag, I’m going to go with:

Dave Berry from Sex on Wheelz
Dena Walker from Curly Dena
Rosemary McCabe from well, Rosemary McCabe

  1. Ooh, you have tagged moi! I look forward to sharing some of my things with the world; largely because I like sharing… which is kind of how I got to be so trampy, but that’s a story for another (drunken) blog post.

    For now, off I go to think of my seven…

      @Dena, I had to tag you with your charmingly brutal honesty, expect it will be entertaining!

  2. People are like Onions, you peel back their layers, they make you cry, but you stick with them anyway.
    I saw Batman Returns first at a friend’s house in Primary school, he had to fast forward the bit where Michelle Pfeifer says: “I feel so much yummier!”, because his mum would come in intermittantly. 🙂

      Oddly my parents had no problem with it, but I didn’t get a chance to watch “The Craft” till I was 15/16 just because they disliked witchcraft in it.

  3. There’s a roller disco in Blanchardstown! My sister was there at the weekend! It’s my mission to get there before the end of the summer, fersure.

      Hope they serve drinks there, that would make it even more fun. Will have to come up with an excuse to go to Blanch now

  4. Ouch, SJP and Shergar? Haha, what is with guys hating SJP, it’s so weird, us gals love her, just one of those things, I guess.

      I was actually always a fan of her in Sex & The City, the TV show at least. Never saw her as a typically beautiful woman but she was always striking in her style and the way she presented herself. Unfortunately in the new movie, they have her looking like the lovechild of Mr Ed and Jerry Hall – now I know why Hall stays quiet too

  5. Shergar. Haha. I can safely say that is the first time I’ve heard that description.

    I too take an horrific photo. Think…Shergar’s inbred cousin.

    “I used to grab my swivel chair and slide down the long hallway in our old house as if it was an emergency and I was Dr Benson”. I need to try that. I really need to try that.
    It’s like back in the day when I used to wear my hairband over my eyes and pretend I was Geordi from Star Trek. Or that it was a transducer like Alana’s in “The Girl from Tomorrow”. I always thought I might grow up to be a superhero. Still bitterly disappointed.

      Jeez, “The Girl From Tomorrow”, I forgot about that; her and her magical hairband with one of the Pippa’s running about.
      Never played Geordi myself, loved TNG movies but the show bugged me, that and it was a few years gone by the time I appreciated sci-fi

  6. According to Wikipedia, Katharine Cullen (who played Alana) is mainly doing stagework now. Not a transducer in sight.

    We used to watch the ST series ever week, on a Sunday morning I think it was. Quickly followed by an addiction to Mirror, Mirror, Xena and Sliders. Good times, good times 🙂

      Ahhh Sliders, what a wonderfully awful show, quite like Xena actually in how they were essential viewing but not exactly taxing on mental faculties. They really don’t make them like they used to.
