A Break From The Yarn

I have been tagged, not by the RSPB, but by Riohnna I have to write 7 random things about me, which I’m pretty sure might be the title of a film.

Seven Random Things About Me (now in widescreen)

1. I can juggle. I was taught by a colleague who also taught me to play Texas Hold’em. Not simultaneously mind, it is impossible to juggle whilst bluffing (prove me wrong I dare ya!)

2. When I worked for a debt management company I got so sick of the job I started signing false names. Someone out there has an IVA signed by “Mickey Mouse” and also “Bob Carolgees”

3. I am not a good flyer. Well, mainly it’s the taking off and landing I hate but also the crashing. Especially the crashing.

4. I was involved in a Podcasting craptacular called Ben Baker’s Sexual Corridor. I also write with Ben Baker very occasionally here. The series tried to be funny and edgy. But I was a uni student at the time so it was more likely cheesy and pompous with just a hint of self-importance.

5. I used to write a blog called Louise Is Not A Porn Star. It was fairly popular, but mainly due to very misguided google searches. As a result it was probably very disappointing for internet perverts what with it being a comedy site named after a mishearing of a conversation about how I used to work in a Pawn Shop.

6. I am obsessed with fungus. I love walking in the woods and finding mushrooms and toadstools. It broke my heart this year when the Fly Agaric did not come back in the garden. And no, I did not eat it.

7. I recently was developing a stomach ulcer. I am now indebted to a crazy Australian scientist who found out it could be cured by antibiotics after he drank a load of the bacteria H.Pylori. My stomach has never ever felt so good. And you thought Neighbours was the only good thing to come out of Australia.

Now there are rules...
1. Be nice and link to the person(s) who tagged you.
2. Share 7 random, weird, unknown things about yourself on your blog.
3. Tag 7 other people to join the meme.
4. Comment on their blogs so they know

...but I’m going to have to break them. I don’t know 7 fellow bloggers well enough to tag, but if anyone wants to do it feel free. Also if you’re reading this on my Facebook feed then go on indulge me in the comments section.

In other news I've completed the blue dog coat but Dudley won't stand still long enough to let me get a snap of him. I've also made some more fluffy bunny slippers which look a little like these (Caroline - I'll be posting them out to you just as soon as I can get to the Post Office!)

LOLOLOLOLOLOL@ number 5! That is so cool! If you love fungus, you may love our house. The building holds moisture so welll, mold grows on the walls.(GGRRRRR!!!)
When I had no readers, and I was tagged, I would log in to crochetville and read the "have You Updated Your Blog" thread, and randomly choose victims.

I haven't yet ventured into Crochetville, I may have to give it a try!
