A Blue Perspective: Four things

You can always tell how popular you are by how long it takes for a meme to get to you. After following quite a few links back up the chain on this one I ended up at a dead end over a month ago ... my ego is now at an all time low. Thanks Lucas and John :P

Four bloggers I am tagging

    Topolino's!!! Excellent choice. I pretty much only ate Topolinos while I was in Melbourne. So did everyone else in St Kilda it seemed.

    I loved the way you could sit outside and get shouted at by drunk loonies...reminded me of home.

     I love Blackadder.  I have all four seasons, and I've ripped them to my computer so I can listen while I work on things.  I've probably watched/listened to them all a dozen times.
