There was this award...

Laura gave it to me as a friend award which was a very nice thing to do especially as I am such a bad person. Thankyou Laura.
Seven ranadom things about me:
I feel that I should give Brussels Sprouts a try. How bad can they be?
I helped find out why three kakapos died. I had nothing to do with it and can prove that I was in Guatamala
at the time.
My best score on Facebook scrabble is 150 for "Cowards". I never even knew that Noel had a brother.
I left home and went to live in Wellington at the age of 17. This did not go well due to immaturity and it needed effort. I will recover from this one day.
I have been reading "Alice in Sunderland" by Bryan Talbot. You should read it too. There is a story in the book that covers only one panel (it is a graphic novel and there are many many stories in it) about the English comedian Les Dawson being so scared by something that happened to him backstage at the Sunderland  Empire theatre, that he refused to ever work there again. Not that there was a lot of "ever again" left for Les, he died 18 months later. It is one of my favourite mysteries.
Another is The Lights over Kaikoura  from New Zild in 1978. Buggered if I know what they were. Radar and visual confusion exercises?
When I was 10 I wanted to be a Foreign Correspondent onna radio so that I could talk to my dad from a long way away for free. He was always offering advice to those people. I even applied for a job as a Radio New Zealand cadet but due to my total lack of talent I did not get the job. Also, this job might have required effort. 
I am not going to list the rules.
The awards I am making are:
Internet Friends: You. I am humbled by your wit, friendliness and your intelligence. One day I might be a better person.
Esteemed colleagues: Smut Clyde, tigris.
Best seasonal ale or ale product that may or may not contain nuts: Riddled Christmas Ale 2011. Described by Robert Parker as "Yowser! Sockerooni, baybeeeee!

I had an inkling. I think you have to be interesting to be as funny as AK is.

I'm starting to think the Riddled staff should just purchase all my art/books art-books from now on...

The Riddled book shop's gestation is a long and painful one and could well be the subject of a future post.
