Vin Diesel: The Facts

The Fast and the Furious was on today. And it reminded me of a few given FACTS about the bad ass action hero superstar-o-rama that is Vin Diesel. I gave it some thought, and here are the facts:

- There is no theory of evolution, just a list of creatures that Vin Diesel allows to live.

- Vin Diesel's hair is too afraid of him to grow.

- When Vin Diesel goes to donate blood, he declines the syringe and instead requests a hand gun and a bucket

- Vin Diesel is the only man to ever defeat a brick wall in a game of tennis

- Vin Diesel can set ants on fire with a magnifying glass... at night....

- If you were to lock Vin Diesel in a room with a guitar, a year later you would have the greatest album ever; it would sweep the Grammys. When asked why he hadn't done this before Vin would reply "Because Grammys are for queers." Then he would eat a knife to show the seriousness of his response.

- When Vin Diesel does a push up, he isn't lifting himself up, he pushing the earth down.

- Vin Diesel coined the phrase "I could eat a horse" after eating every last unicorn in existence.

- Vin Diesel can win a game of monopoly without owning any property.

- In an average living room there are 1,242 objects Vin Diesel could use to kill you... including the room itself...

...It's just the facts, ma'am.

Gratitude 26 (all on it's own)

26. A P Watt and Louise, for finding and believing in...

This is probably the moment to announce that thanks to London Still and all who have contributed to it's humble success, I am embarking on a marvelous journey as an actual writer (eeeek!) with fellow ice cream/badcrimedrama/musical loving agent Louise.

Louise, thank you for being so obsessed with Carousel and the ballet that bears your name that you thought to troll a message board and follow a link... (incidentally, thank you to whomever put the blog's link there in the first place!). Regardless, baked goods, crime drama and the world of writing will never be the same.

You can find my bright shiny profile in the search bar, or between Nevil Shute and Christopher Silvester in the list of authors... let me just say that one more time, I am among a list of authors... WOW. Talk about this gratitude getting it's very own spot.

Thank you to all.

(And watch this space...hehe!)

The best birthday of my adult life.
There was a treasure hunt.
And magical coffee.
And mexican food.
And home-made cupcakes.
And many many loving friends.

Thank you friends.
Here's to another year!
