7 Things

7 Things

[I was sure I’d already done this, but what the hell]

So since I got tagged by both Andy AND Bytye, I’m going to do fourteen things, and try and tag fourteen people. But first, the rules:
* Link your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
* Share seven facts about yourself in the post – some random, some weird.
* Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
* Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.

1. I got kicked out of Guides for being too old. I was offered a chance at senior section but turned it down because I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend my time around younger kids any more. I’ve been recently offered the chance to be an adult helper again though.

2. I use to make lace when I was younger. I still have my cushion and bobbins at my parent’s house, and I bet I could still do it. I’ve made two bookmarks, three Christmas tree ornaments and two pictures [that I can recall].

3. Up until a couple of years ago I use to have dreams that most people apparently would call ‘nightmares’ almost every night.

4. It takes me several hours to go to sleep.

5. I once took a home correspondence course in creative writing. I pretty much aced it.

6. I’m borderline anemic, which means I bruise easily and I’m only allowed to give blood once a year.

7. I hate having ‘bits’ in my tea. When I lived at with my parent’s I would always blow the dust out of cups, and at home I descale the kettle as soon as I think it’s getting scaly. I don’t have time to descale the kettle at work, but I always make sure I empty the kettle completely every morning to get rid of the bits.

8. I do the washing up in the exact same order every time: glassware, cutlery, plates, bowls, then anything else [like pots and pans].

9. I still have three boxes of books at my parent’s because Andy says we don’t have room for them here.

10. I’ve ‘won’ National Novel Writing Month 3 times, but only one of those [Tusamov] is a complete novel, the other two [The MOW Files and The Stone Of Tides] are only half way complete.

11. I have never owned a personal, portable audio device for more than a month [not counting my new mobile phone]

12. when I’m counting I have this habit of missing out the number eleven.

13. I hate seeing numbers written in digits in professional work. I think all numbers should be written out longhand.

14. Harvest, nearly always the first week in September, is my favorite time of year.

And now for the tags. And now I have a small problem – Andy has tagged nearly everyone I know that posts with any real regularity. Damn him *waves fist* Fern is the only person left for me to tag, so consider yourself taggificated.

One thought on “7 Things

  1. you made me lol so hard with “taggificated” people thought some kind of chipmunk was getting raped in my office. That is the most awesome of words I have encountered today!
