Blogtoberfest Day 18 - 99 things about me...

Running thin on items to talk about for day 17. How many posts can I do about binding?! Above is what is happening under the machine at the moment. So I borrowed this meme from Ad's blog. It has bit of an American angle to it. I have crossed out some of the things and made them a bit more Australian for me. Things you've already done in bold. Things you want to do in italics.

We need to talk. You don't want to build a snow fort????!!! Really woman, come to Canada, skip Niagara Falls and build a snow fort. You won't regret it. You'll feel 10 again.

Agreed, the Mona Lisa must have shrunk with age.

No karoke does not count. And Ben the Wiggly Fish is not really famous.
