Eight Things About Me

Baldwin's Girl has tagged me with a meme, in which I have to reveal eight random facts about myself. There are rules - eek! Here they are:

When tagged, you have to link to the person who tagged you. Post the rules just before your list, then list eight random facts about yourself. At the end of your post, you must tag and link to eight other people, or fifty angry Sasquatch will hurl rocks at your house and beat you with big sticks. Okay, so I made the Sasquatch bit up. I'm a wannabe writer - humour me! Ready?

Eight random things about me

1. I have seen a UFO. By UFO, I mean a weird, freaky-looking thing I couldn't identify. I'm not suggesting for one second it was nasty little grey aliens. Just a flying thing I couldn't recognize. Could have been swamp gas or a spontaneously combusted cow fart, for all I know.

2. I despise parsnips. They're a truly evil vegetable, straight from the devil's own garden. Yeuch!

3. I have an intense, pathological hatred of Tom Cruise. I'd like to slap the grinning little hobgoblin into orbit on a one way journey - to the ends of the universe. Double yeuch!

4. I loathe the commercialization of Christmas. I'm not religious, but I think it should be a special time for families, free from all the hideous marketing hype and horrendous expense. Kids demand so much these days - blame the advertizers.

5. I live a 10-15 walk from the house where famous Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas, was born.

6. I'm scared of earwigs and scorpions. In fact, when I was a kid, I thought earwigs were scorpions. A bit silly really, as the UK only has one relatively harmless species of scorpion, which has arrived from continental Europe in recent years.

7. I HATE cold callers arriving on my doorstep. Don't care if they're political canvassers, Bible-bashers or salespeople - they can all #$%& off!

8. I loathe the occupants of a nearby student house with a vengeance. The vile runts let off fireworks at 3 AM, allow their dog to bark at night, get drunk in the street and make lots of noise, skateboard up and down the street at all hours of day and night, play loud music, put their garbage out the day AFTER it's due for collection (leaving it to stink on the street for another six days) and block the pavement with their cars, forcing pedestrians, and more importantly, ME, out into the path of oncoming traffic. Apart from that, they seem quite nice boys!

Okay, so who shall I tag? Here are some bloggers I've recently met, and would like to get to know a little more:

1. Dragonstar

2. Dragonheart

3. Daisy the Curly Cat

4. Bridget

5. Hootin' Anni

6. Grams

7. Shiera

8. Lady Banana

Daisy said...

Thanks for tagging me! I am going to put my thinking cap on.

ps: I do not like Tom Cruise either.

Hi Siani!

Thanks for the invite! Let's see which of my secrets I shall reveal...
I'll let you know as soon as I'm done. ^-^

I also loathe #8. I dislike people who do anything they want without considering how their acts affect other people.

It's Monday here already ... grrrr.

Have a nice week!

The only way I can eat a parsnip is when they're cooked with a pork roast...really greasy and with lots of gravy from the roast. Otherwise, I'm with you all the way.

[I'll get to the tag sometime this week, I'll let you know when.]

Hootin'Anni said...

Oh and by the way....Tom C. isn't my kinda guy either [to put it nicely]. rofl

Dragonheart said...
