Three Day Quote Challenge, day one

My questionable thanks to willaful for ambushing me early this morning with her challenge, and my apologies for starting with a cheat list.



  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Publish a quote on 3 consecutive days on your blog. The quote can be one of your own, from a book, movie or from anyone who inspires.
  • Nominate 3 more bloggers each day to carry on this endeavour.


Quote 1:

"She's the giggle at a funeral

Knows everybody's disapproval

I should've worshipped her sooner

If the Heavens ever did speak

She is the last true mouthpiece"


Hozier - Take me to Church lyrics


Not a film or a book, but music. It's funny because I can't carry a tune in a bucket nor do I particularly relish reading poetry. Except in lyrics.


This doesn't describe who I am or who I wish to be—though the second fits too—this is about the the three women who I thought of first. I'm not expecting them to answer and continue with this challenge, but at same time I cannot not mention them. My friends and blogger sisters.


I did mention I was going to cheat, didn't I.


Ridley, not a giggle but a guffaw.


Becks, worth every laurel and more.


Liz, "the last true mouthpiece", I miss you.
