photo friday: mr sloppy returns

Friday, January 28, 2011

mr sloppy returnsMr Sloppy never really left us... some of the images of the Street Dreams mascot are still around if you know where to look, but this year Mr Sloppy has had a bit of a makeover (which is being polite, I think he's actually gained some weight...) and is starting to show up again...

So I went for a little walk at lunchtime today with the mission to find this version. It's a little like hide and seek really... or some sort of treasure hunt... you know there are new Mr Sloppys around, but you have to hunt them down.

And obviously the return of Mr Sloppy also means that the program for Street Dreams is out...

You know, every time I see a video with footage from last year, I keep looking for myself in the background... fortunately I don't seem to be in any of the footage!

Anyway, the program... I'm very excited about the Dumpster Biennale (although, really, if it's not happening every other year, is it really a Biennale) again... must resist the urge to buy another one though (only because I don't have the space).

I'm slightly less excited about the artist they have coming in to redo the wall outside the Format Gallery... if only because she's described as a "visual artist" rather than a street artist... but she may do something amazing, so I'll wait and see.

In other news...

stylish blogger awardLooky... I got an award!

Well, it's really more of a meme with delusions of grandeur, but whatever.

The very lovely (Large)Tony from West of Mayberry passed it on to me because according to him I've "got some great photography and an eye for style". Awww bless... He's such a sweetheart!

So the rules go something like this...

Thank the person who gave you the award (check), post seven things about yourself and nominate/contact five other bloggers to pass the award on to.

Although, really, if everybody passes it on to 5 people, by the time the tenth person passes it on 1,953,125 will be stylish...


Seven Things About Me (The "Shit That Happened This Week") Edition
  1. My To Do List at work isn't getting any shorter... it's also not getting any longer, it just sits there, staring at me while I get distracted by other things which is something that I'm exceptionally good at.
  2. I make really good quiche.
  3. I always seem to be the one who does all the work when it comes to getting naked with a dude... whether it's his place or my place, I do most of the heavy lifting... what the hell is up with that?
  4. I now have crushes on four different YouTube vloggers... well five, but one is a woman.
  5. My elephant-like memory came to good use yesterday when I created a Google map of all the locations of street art I could remember in Adelaide.
  6. I have a project at work where I'm going to have to stand up in front of a bunch of people and talk for about 45 minutes, and it terrifies me. Fortunately it's not until March. Unfortunately I really haven't started working on it yet (see also #1).
  7. I went through my blogroll earlier this week and have hardly anybody left so the next step is going to be really difficult.
If you want to know some actual stuff about me, try my fourth and seventh ever posts...

Sadly, most of the people I can think of who I would have said deserved a Stylish Award are no longer blogging... or at least not regularly enough for it to be worthwhile...

So unless there's a great outcry in the comments for me to award Stylish Awards, we'll just leave it at that...

Now it's time for leftover quiche...
