Once again I'll keep this brief (as usual); as I reflect on Australia and New Zealand's soldiers this ANZAC Day (25 April), I also reflect on what's been a very quick six years on deviantART.

Again I admit I haven't posted as often as I would have liked to. You know the drill by now - busy life and other things outside of dA.

But it's still good to see plenty of new artists, long-standing artists and new artworks coming out every time I check this place out.

Whenever I feel like posting, I'll certainly do it :)
Now that I have your attention, I have just one question to ask you.

Is there any particular topic that you feel is overused in this forum?
A popular song from the BBC comedy "The Two Ronnies" told the story of Bold Sir John, laden with funny/nasty wordplay:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=woqfb1…

One such verse for example goes like this:
When bold Sir John return-ed home,
They gave him gin to try:
"They filled me not with liquor up,
Nor give me grain nor grape to sup.
Pour cowslips' dew into my cup,
A puritan am I."

Poor cow! Poor cow! Pet cow by Moraela
Pour cow, pour cow,
Pour cowslips' dew into my cup,
Up you! Up you! Middle Finger Emoticon by hprince329
A pu-, a pu-,
A puritan am I.


See if you can come up with a verse better than that one.
Tagged by HalyPooH - funnily enough I saw another earlier journal from 2013 where she tagged me -  IT'S a Meme. It's A Meme. It's a MEME!As tagged by :iconHalypooh: :)
1.- You must post these rules.
2.-  Each person has to share 10 things about them
3.- Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer 
4.- Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal

5.- Go to their page to inform them they are tagged (Well, the dA messages page can do that now :))
6.- Not something like " you are tagged if you read that"
7.- You have to legitimately tag 10 people 
8.- No tag-backs
9.- You can't say that you don't do tags.

(No law against NOT doing tags.)
10.-YOU MUST MAKE A JOURNAL ENTRY.

(Well, that I am doing)
11.- You must then measure the circumference of your eyeball

(Sounds painful)


TEN FACTS ABOUT ME
1. I have a mad passion for travelling.
2. I'm a very keen photographer.
3. I joined deviantART on a public holiday (ANZAC Day 2010).
4. I have Asperger syndrome (a form of autism).
5. I am Austral


RULES:
1. You have to post these rules.
2. Each person has to share 13 things about them.
3. Answer the 13 questions asked to you and invent 13 questions the people you tag will have to answer.
4. Choose 13 people.
5. You have to tag 13 people.
6. Tag-backs are ALLOWED.
7. Be creative with the title. No "I've Got Tagged" things.
8. You can't say you don't do tags.
(No law against not doing it, but...)

Now to the facts (which you may have seen on my previous journals).
1. I have had some of my Instagram photos liked by a Channel Nine newsreader.
2. Despite my (previously) mad passion for game shows, I have only appeared as a contestant on one game show (Wheel of Fortune) so far.
3. With my commitments to the Cumberland Gang Show (a community theatre group for Scouts and Guides), at least ten songs I have composed (or co-composed) have appeared in their shows since 2002.
4. I worked as a TV camera operator at a Scout Jamboree in January. Trust me - it's worth it!
5. I was once breath-tested for my birthday. (My 12th birthday I think - one of my then-neighbours worked for the Police.)
6. I STILL stay up late for no reason.
7. I have a fear of magpies.
8. I have been to all except two of Australia's mainland states and territories. (All that's left are the Northern Territory and Jervis Bay Territory.)
9. I somehow hate the taste of straight cheese.
10. I've written questions for at least two different trivia nights. I think I should get to it again, but think of how it should be done better.
11. I have never won a meat tray raffle. :(
12. I've spent two hours trying to come up with something for this journal! :wow:
13. I've heard myself snore a couple of times.

HalyPooH's questions:
1.) Do you buy songs, or listen to them from websites like Youtube, Pandora, 8tracks, etc? I do both. If it's not on iTunes, YouTube is my next best friend.
2.) Favorite meme? One does not simply... mention his favourite meme.
3.) Favorite size of pencil lead to draw with? I haven't drawn something in a while; I'd say one of the thin ones for outlines from what I remember.
4.) Do you tend to like more stylized or average art styles? Normally stylised; I still appreciate there are people who just like to draw things in their own way.
5.) What type of humor do you like the most? Off-beat and corny jokes. Like what The Two Ronnies did - 
6.) Name one thing about your appearance that you find interesting. (cool scar, strange freckle, maybe your eyelashes curve in a weird way, things like that) - I'd say my head - doesn't really go in proportion to my body?
7.) Have you ever tried ASMR? What do you think of it? (If you don't know what it is, search for it on youtube) Might have done it once; I think it works at times.
8.) Do you prefer warm or cold weather? (or when its both at the same time like in Texas) I'd prefer mild weather.
9.) If you like chocolate, what type is your fav? If not, what's your fav candy? Whittaker's brand - not as sugary taste as Cadbury.
10.) Have you ever done the bean boozled challenge? Yes - at a Jelly Belly shop in Rotorua a few years ago. Third time unlucky with mixed worms (I think).
11.) What was the last really embarrassing thing you did? Can't think of it.
12.) Do you wear socks to sleep? Yes.
13.) Are you superstitious? No - there's nothing wrong with 13 que--AAARRGHGHAG!BHJHJ!!

My questions (some I might be repeating from previous journals, but never mind):
1. What's the first thing that comes to mind when I say "Hook turn"?
2. When you were 10, what song couldn't you get out of your head?
3. How would you describe your accent?
4. If you wanted to spend a day by yourself to unwind and relax - forget about everything that's happening - how would you do it?
5. Which celebrity (of any medium) would you really want to invite to your next big birthday bash?
6. Do you prefer coffee or tea?
7. How many of your deviantART friends have you met in person (so far)?
8. Repeating one of HalyPooH's questions - do you wear socks to sleep?
9. What's the strangest language you've ever heard (apart from the one you normally speak)?
10. Have you ever done an overnight car or coach trip to another city just on impulse?
11. What's your idea of a real good dinner at home?
12. Have you ever stayed up for more than 24 hours at a time? (If yes, what happened?)
13. What sort of drink do you think goes best with breakfast?

Now, who to tag:

Australia
(The Artist Formerly Known as brichards85 ;))

Based in Sydney, Australia, I have a very keen interest in photography, travel, music, theatre, Scouts, trivia and game shows (though the order of preference may change from time to time).

Diagnosed with Asperger syndrome (a form of autism) at age 4, at first glance I look like any ordinary twentysomething just willing to do anything (such as doing my first ever short film shoot - two days to do something like a ten minute short film? It's possible).

NOTE: I DO NOT ACCEPT POINTS REQUESTS.
