I've been tagged...


I have been rather dreading this tag arriving - I knew it was bound to.
This is not because I have problems with thinking of wierd things about myself but because I have problem with chain letters. Written down that sounds horribly pompous.
I am quite happy to write list of 6 wierd things about me but I shall not be tagging anyone else - sorry.
Here goes
1. I am so bad at sport that a school team once decided to play one person short rather than risk having me on the pitch
2. I crammed for my art history finals in the University of Aberdeen's anatomy museum - so now the smell of formadlehyde brings back the dates of Mantegna's frescoes!
3. I am addicted to licorice.
4. I must always have the widest mug available to drink my coffee out of - I hate expresso cups.
5. The only sport I can win at is croquet.
6. I didn't ever finish a school needlework project - it was all that being sent back to re-pin, re-tack, re-sew.
All the best (obviously not a team player)

I know just what you mean about the tagging, in fact I did try and ignore it for a while, this was a mistake as others then tagged me as well.

Did that mean you had to then think of 36 wierd things????

Do you know Jane on paper we aren't a good match up - I loved sport - team capt for everything sweaty and muddy!! Love expresso, never played croquet - obviously not sweaty or muddy enough!! I'm way too mentally freakish to trust myself to cram - and I hate liquorice.

I do however, agree with you about school sewing projects and chain letters! So there is hope for us yet!!

I like cutey dogs too.

Heather - to be honest the liquorice thing turns out to be to do with the Addisons disease - it helps to stimulate the steroid producing bits - but I began the liquorice cravings before I knew that.
I also practically live on expresso but have to drink it from a wide mug rather than a dinky cup.
I have lots of sporty,well co-ordinated friends!

I got tagged, but didn't do it to anyone else as I too have strong views about chain letters, but took part to be a good sport. Reading other people's weird things is rather interesting though; it's quite revealing how some really do tell you some weird stuff (Yvestown and her toilet habbits) to others who use it as an oppurtunity to promote themselves.
