I just drank a pint of flat tonic because I refuse to waste anything. Happy to know I won't get malaria anytime soon. Whenever I have tonic I think of "A Town Like Alice."

My son is beginning to set.
My light has begun to twinkle up the rocks.

You know, paintergirl, gotta tell you, your photo of ice, looks like an astronomy chart, no that I look again.

Look forward to your review of my latest script.

Happy De-Lurking Week!

Wanted to de-lurk and say hello.


David said...

Hmm, I'm not sure what to make of the fact I'm the only one who's filled out your form.

Lilly said...

I'll join you later, David. I need more time in front of the pc before I fill it in. Alan's got an exam paper to do at present, so I can't spend a lot of time on the pc...I'll be back...

[Didn't mean to sound like Arnie - sorry]

It's a fun list and no one wants to play except David. I am feeling a bit unloved in blogworld, but that's ok, I mend quickly.

Thanks to acu for the list!

David-When are you going to finish that time machine? After the dozen or so books lurking around the house, I plan on reading Stephen Hawking's books. melvin and i went to see Aguirre with an orchestra playing, years ago it seems.

Gotham-very interesting, i never thought of the pic that way. Hmmm, I like that. I'll be over, probaly have to print it out and read it.

It will be fun to see your list. We have one computer too, so i know how that is.

Right then, finally -- I hope my replies have been worth the wait [though I wouldn't bet on it]:

My name: Lilly
Childhood ambition: Numerous...from hair dresser to riding school instructor.
Fondest memory: Long and happy summers at my grandparents' summer house near the beach before my parents were divorced
Soundtrack: The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Kinks, The Smiths, Joy Division
Retreat: Solitude
Wildest dream: A world in peace
Proudest moment: Finishing years of study with a '13' and a publication.
Biggest challenge: Having faith in myself and my own abilities, positive thinking [which I know would do me a world of good], trying not to stress and worry.
Alarm clock: A wee brown one from the early 80s [a b'day present from my grandparents] and an R2-D2 one. I always use both.
Perfect day: Relaxation and laughter - when all worries are miles away...
First job: Delivering papers on my bicycle
Indulgence: Coffee, red wine, tortilla chips
Last purchase: 4 green towels on offer [this morning]
Favorite movie: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly; Star Man; Get Carter [original version].

My life: is mine, and I am grateful for every single day I get.
My card is a combined Dankort/VISA

Yea-Lilly played too! here here to positive thinking. Creatives have such a hard time with that one. We all need a little positive thinking fairy to come around and tap us on the head.
Your soundtrack is a fine one. I t's so simliar to my 4 albums I couldn't live without. The Good and tha Bad huh? You are a toughie. I almost put some Chow Yun Fat movies in too, but it's so hard to narrow them down. Get Carter though-a super classic!

Lilly said...

LOL @ "a toughie" :-D I just love the so-called spaghetti westerns and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is by far my favorite. Plus I've always had a thing for Client Eastwood!

Yes, Get Carter! Oh; damn good stuff. I remember Alan going on and on about this film and I knew for years, that I had to watch it -- finally it was on Danish telly and boy did I fall in love with it instantly!
