Snailquake‘s blog is just the kind of thing I like. It’s about animals and you will also know that I like animals. (Again, the magic About page of mine). Her blog has the kind of zaniness that I like, such as using words not normally used in the topic being written about, like Mexican chili in a post about ants! Here is the article!
The pets I have are a blue tongued skink called Georgy (I’ve wrote about 3 posts involving her), and … fascinating fact number 1, I have three chickens in the garden. They’re called Talon, Fluffball and Redwing. Originally there were Talon, Shadow and Fireball. Unfortunately Shadow got killed (Don’t know what killed her; Oo, the mystery..). So that left two. Then, in the middle of our holiday, we got news (via dad) that Fireball had been BRUTALLY SLAUGHTERED… BOO HOO HOO! In truth, our neighbour’s dog got in our garden and “played” with her by putting her in his mouth. She died of shock so dad got two new chickens, which look identical to each other.
Here are the other fascinating facts about me (Not in order of importance):
- I reallllllllllllllllllllllllly like cheese. In fact, before I wrote this sentence, I had pancakes with cheese! My favourite cheese is Parmigiano-Reggiano, the cheese that you use to coat your spaghetti bolognese.
- I also like history. My favourite king is Richard the II (1366-1399). I like him because he was crowned at only 10 years old. I wrote a series of comics about him when he was 10 years old and what he did, including banning peas. (It’s not a historical fact).
- I like Shakespeare. I’ve just bought 9 books in Singapore, including Hamlet, Macbeth and The Tempest. I’ve finished Macbeth and I am reading King Lear. The record for the longest Shakespeare soliloquy that I know of is the speech that Canterbury says in Henry V, act 1 scene 2. It’s 62 lines long! Imagine having to recall that! I DARE you to find a longer speech in Shakespeare!
- I like watching animal programs. I have found a new love on the National Geograhic channel called Wild Case Files. It investigates strange animal cases that science hasn’t come across. It has other things like the moving rocks of Death Valley…
And now I really can’t think of anything else…
