Seven Things About Me - In Case You Wanted to KnowSunday, February 17, 2008
I have been tagged by Twenty Cent Mixture for the Seven Things Meme. It took me a while to think up seven things about myself so here goes:
1, My favourite Cream Egg flavour is Caramello.
I wasn't too keen on Caramello until one sunny afternoon when it was the only junk food left in the work snack box. I have been a convert ever since.
2, My car is purple.
It's not a subtle purple either. Think a bar of Cadbury chocolate with trade mark swirl and purple wrapper (must not think of aforementioned cream eggs).
3, I tried to teach myself to crochet and it didn't work.
I was only 9 and have since been told that it is something you have to be shown. Still, the one failure may have scared me off.
4, My favourite piece of music as a child was “Music Box Dancer” by Richard Clademan.
It was a matter of putting that record on (more specifically asking Mum to) and I was off spinning until I fell down dizzy or hit some furniture. Some time this would take more than one playing and there was certainly no technique to the spinning.
5, I have a love hate relationship with housework.
I love having it finished, but am rubbish at getting it done. I would like to be thought of as a tidy and orderly person. I would also like to achieve world peace.
6, I am can follow instructions, but often choose not to, or consult them only when lost.
7, Seven is my favourite number. For numerous reasons. The number seems to occur everywhere and more specifically is the day and month of my birthday.
This meme came with some rules so I had better include them.
Rules for tagging:
1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Back to number 6, I feel a bit shy about tagging people I haven't met. I could even go so far as to say I am not worthy of tagging the blogs I read. Some of them are listed to the side of this. I find them such an inspiration and love going off on tangents following the connections to see where things end up. Instead of tagging I will ignore the strict letter of instructions 3 & 4 and leave you with a list of seven blogs I am humbled by:
This Vintage Chica - She's so busy
Bella Dia – The advent countdown of Christmas books kept me guessing and introduced new treasures.
Heart Felt – Bringing new life to beloved jerseys and I've met her now.
Mama Urchin – She sews, she quilts, she home schools. Where does she find the time?
Sew Mama Sew – So many reasons, but the current Quilting Month sealed the deal.
Eat Your Words – Adventures to be had for a Salsa dancing, velo rider New Zealander in Paris.
And of course, Twenty Cent Mixture – Cool name, cool crafts. Need I say more?
