The Pinocho Post....

 The lovely Lora recently saddled bestowed me with this fantasmagorical award! Now, no-one loves receiving awards more than me. I  read blog posts and if I see my name in the awards lists I get really excited and can be heard  excitedly squealing:  Me?? You mean me??? Oh thank you, thank you.... so much"!!

I jokingly say 'saddled' above because I do love it but this is a very difficult task for me.
You see, in order to accept this award I must follow the rules below, as designed by Jillsmo :


 
1. You must proudly display the absolutely disgusting graphic that I have created for these purposes. It's so bad that not only did I use COMIC SANS, but there's even a little jumping, celebrating kitten down there at the bottom. It's horrifying! But its presence in your award celebration is crucial to the memetastic process we're creating here.

2. You must list 5 things about yourself, and 4 of them must be bold-faced lies. Just make stuff up, we'll never know; one of them has to be true, though. Of course, nobody will ever know the difference, so we're just on the honor system here. I trust you.

3. You must pass this award on to 5 bloggers that you either like or don't like or don't really have much of an opinion about. I don't care who you pick, and nobody needs to know why. I mean, you can give a reason if you want, but I don't really care.

4. If you fail to follow any of the above rules, I will harass you incessantly until you either block me on Twitter or ban my IP address from visiting your blog. I don't know if you can actually do that last thing, but I will become so annoying to you that you will actually go out and hire an IT professional to train you on how to ban IP addresses just so that I'll leave you alone. I'm serious. I'm going to do these things. 




See my problem is that I am the world's worst liar. I can't make stuff up!! I know  you can't actually see my face  but I know you can tell..... and you've no idea how long it's taking me to do this!

However, I don't want to be incessantly harassed.

So, here goes...

1) I'm a fabulous singer and  on the third Thursday of every month myself and my mother (wheelchair included)  go to a karaoke bar and belt out Dancing Queen by Abba, in full Abba attire. Naturally!

2) Being a self-confessed Desperate Housewife, stuck at home in these recessionary times, I have followed the business advice of one of the cast members of this popular TV show and set up my own ...ahem.... cleaning business from home. I have built up quite a client list at this stage, from all over the world. Poor Mr Jazzy can't quite figure out why the phone is always busy these days. And Jazzy's Hotline is ALWAYS busy ;-)

3) I hate wine. Never drink the stuff....ever!

4) I loved singing when I was a child and my party piece was  Congratulations by Cliff Richard. I used to do  the mouth/teeth thing he does too!


5) Excited squeals of joy (Me?? You mean me??....) can be heard at Chez Jazzy whenever an award is bestowed upon me ;-)

Oh...look at that...there's my five. I was just getting into it...and getting to like it too.  
Included in my five are three out-and-out lies, one semi- truth and one absolute truth.

Whoop.... I did it!

I know you can spot the lies though!


And now to pass  this  award on to others... 

With the powers invested in me I now bestow this salubrious award onto my fellow blogging pals:


Jean at Planet Outreach

Zarah at Lifeasweknowit 


Alysia at Try Defying Gravity

Hammie at Hammiesays

Nan P at Journey into Grand-Motherhood

Have fun!

  3. I so WANT it to be you and your mother performing ABBA-in matching white gogo boots! The idea made me laugh..so I'm going to insist that it is the truth. Now in order to prove that you are uncomfortable at lying-you are going to have to go and make the Abba story a truth...unless it already is...I want pictures!! ;0
