Just as I thought that I had slipped safely under the tagging radar, Arantxa delurked and got me. Here goes!

A. Each person lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.
B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
C. At the end of the post, the person then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

  1. I have a pair of freckles on either side of my left inner elbow which match up exactly when I bend my arm. This, for no particular reason, fascinates me.
  2. I have learned (through one-time necessity!) how to operate my manual camera with my teeth. Not brilliantly well, mind you - I wouldn't recommend it.
  3. When I was quite young I attended ballet, tap dance and Highland dance classes. This was how I discovered that dancing isn't really my thing. Nowadays, I dance like an embarassed, drunken spider if I don't have a specific set of steps to follow precisely.
  4. Living with dogs my whole life has trained me to go on half-hour walks every evening, regardless of whether I have a canine escort or not.
  5. I'm a teetotaler, yet have been mistakenly seen as the most inebriated person present at more than one informal gathering. Who needs alcohol when you can 'get drunk' at will, retain all mental faculties and not suffer a hangover afterwards?
  6. I am currently knitting a basic scarf. I learned stocking stitch back when I was little by asking my mum to teach me, and recently I thought that I might as well develop the skill a bit. This is an extension of my interest in learning to make my own clothes, something I keep telling myself that I'll learn to do 'later'.
  7. I haven't been to a hairdresser in about two years, and have no intention of breaking that record. Why? Last time I went in, they couldn't even decide whether my hair colour was 'light brown' or 'dark blonde'. It's plainly the former. Also, I only require a trim every once in a while, and I have no intention of forking over £20+ for such a straightforward task.
  8. I have lived in a house with animals since the day I was brought home after birth; since then there has never been a single day when there was not at least one dog and one cat living as part of the family. As a result, I can stay home 'alone' for ages without seeing anyone and not care, but if the cat or dog is not also there with me I get lonely fast.
Now to tag people! Grace, Book Girl, Charliegrrl, Lonergrrrl, Pippa, Heloise, Thinking Girl, and any eighth person who would like to do this. Everyone seems to have been tagged already!


  1. Thanks for the tag Mwezzi I will do this one after lunch. I do love to talk about myself!

    Point V: I am partial to the occasional drink but am seriously considering giving it up altogether, because even after just one glass of wine on wednesday night, which I drank slowly while baking muffins and cake, I felt so ill that I had to go to bed! I always have a couple of drinks and then loads of soft drinks or water when I go out which seems to be confusing for some people but like you I can turn on the tipsy and have just as much fun without the resulting illness!

    Point VI: This is something that I will learn to do later! I keep complaining that I want to knit things but know that I would never do my assignments!

  2. Snap, I don't go to the hairdresser's either!
