Describe yourself in a word or words that starts with the first letter of your name.
I had a think about this….then decided to ask MGW. SHE DID NOT HESITATE!!!! ‘Daggy’ was how she described me.
Fortunately, Down Under, being called a ‘dag’ is an affectionate term referring to a person’s overall personality and ability to laugh at themselves.
I think this extract from the sourced web page describes me perfectly.
And I love the word ‘daggy’! I like the whole idea of it. I like when someone calls themselves a dag. To me it shows that that person doesn’t take themselves too seriously, that they can laugh at the fact that maybe they don’t always follow the trend, that maybe they’re not always the height of fashion and sophistication, that maybe sometimes they wear some particular clothes or listen to certain music or watch some TV show or movie, not because it might make them appear cool or part of the group, but simply because against all the evidence of the prevailing definition of ‘good taste’, for some unaccountable reason they actually like it. They are daggy and proud! Even the most sophisticated, talented and admired Australians have acknowledged their ‘inner dag’ and that makes me like them even more.
DAGS and SHEEP
In sheep and wool classing parlance, sheep eat grass, digest what they can and expel the remainder at the other end. If any ‘second hand’ grass get caught in wool or legs it is called a dag. A sheep with a lot of dags on it is called ‘daggy’.
Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?
The only books, apart from educational tomes, which I dislike reading are biographies. Non fiction are okay if written properly.
If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?
Short answer…particularly after number one……none. I am wrapped with my lot in life at the moment.
If you had only one book you could write what would it be about? Assume it is a top 10 seller of any genre.
I do not consider myself to be a good writer and think that I would only be able to write a children’s book.
If I WAS a writer I would be writing an adventure because you are only limited by your imagination.
One of my favourite Australian authors is Matthew Reilly. One of his books has a Boeing 747, in near vertical climb, being pursued by MiG fighters, in north west Australia. So what does the 747 pilot do? Opens the rear door and drops the two jeeps in the plane onto the MiGs. What else?!?
I could list several others authors who write great adventure stories. The escapism story which makes you forget the daily grind is my favourite.
