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.
