3...2...1... You're it!

I was tagged by Curlypops this week, and it's such a fun way to procrastinate - just what I needed - thanks CurlyPops!

Here are the simple rules:
Link to the person who tagged you. (check)
Post the rules on your blog. (check)
Write Six Random Things about yourself. (hmmm. Thinks.)
Tag six-or-so other people at the bottom of the post. (ok!)
Leave comments on their blogs, letting them know they've been tagged! (yup)
Let the person who tagged you know when you've written the post. (yes'm)

So, here we go:

Random thing number 1: I'm a whizz at a jigsaw puzzle. Family training: comes in handy when you're a quilter. All those fine art puzzles as a kid meant that when I came to study art history, I knew some of the paintings in very, very, minute detail. (laughs!)

Random number 2: My favourite sound is the wind in the trees.

Random 3: I used to be an archery coach at a summer camp.

Totally random 4: I can't abide wobbly food. Jelly, tapioca, congee, you name it, it's just not happening.

Utterly silly 5: My nickname used to be 'Biff'. Why? Because I'm the mild-mannered one who accidentally knocked a guy out and then was horrified. (He probably deserved it.)

Random thing number 6 and final: I have a generic face. About once a month, someone I've never met swears they know me from somewhere. In Melbourne, London, and Toronto - for over ten years, this has happened. Someone even tried to hug me once. He was very embarrassed when he found out I wasn't his long-lost friend.

Roses are red, violets are blue, Let's see who's playing, so I'm tagging YOU!

Devliegendekoe for Nicolette, whose walks are divine,
Cath, an old friend, recently re-met online.
Maureen is cheerful at
Cooking my Life,
while Lily at Block-a-Day sews faster than light!

I was going to call
Bellgirl, but you lot got there first
If YOU want to join in, go on - do your worst.

Hey Biff that pizza looks pretty good!

I've made it 'Blogtoberfest Fave Friday' play along if you like...check out my post. xx

Bellgirl said...

Hey, I have a generic face too, I get the same reaction. Perhaps they think I'm you!

...btw was the guy you knocked out the stranger who hugged you? ;)

Har, har, very funny Bellgirl: I was actually quite nice to him, embarrassing though it was.

We're Canadian: we'll be nice about things. Noice. - And I'll just assume any weird ones are really looking for you, right?

I once said to a person like yuor stranger..I must have a common face.

He flirtingly said, Oh there's nothing common about YOU dear!

And before I run off to Artist Way group, I'm glad to announce I did my 6 things and tagged 5...just cause.

That is so so funny that you think you have a 'generic' face. I always get 'do you have a sister?' People are funny.

As for wobbly food, hmm, I am not a fan of congee, feels like someone's already chewed it up - yuck!
