challenge (to be pronounced shh-al-awnge, like the french)

whilst pottering around the internet this morning i came across Dead Robot, a blog written by a ridiculously clever and droll bearded gent, that puts sh*tty little post-things-i-like blogs like mine to shame :(

said blogger is currently taking on a 'blog challenge' that involves writing about 64 distinct predetermined topics, each revealing a little more of the scribe to the reader. in the interest of bringing a bit o soul to my idle ramblings and of sharing a bit more of myself than my favourite old timey photos and some clothes i can't afford, i have decided to take on this challenge myself. ima call it what's your damage?

regular loose leaf postings will continue as before, but now in amongst them will be 64 challenge posts as follows:
