lucky sevens

28 November 2007


Miss Sally, aka djbebe, has tagged me for a meme. So here we go:

:: the rules:

  1. Link to your tagger (see above), and also post these rules on your blog.
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself (random or weird) on your blog.
  3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
  4. Let them know they are TAGGED by leaving a comment on their blog.

:: seven random or weird facts about me

  1. I hate seafood.  Really hate it. Prawns, oysters, mussels, crabs – hate ’em all.  Fish is OK, but anything else that once lived in the sea – no.
  2. I have a scar on my left thumb.  I cut it with the big carving knife when I was 8, after I was expressly forbidden to use said knife.
  3. I once sat next to Ewan Macgregor on a plane.  He is just as spunky in real life, and his wife was very air-sick
  4. I wish I had a dog.  Preferably a schnauzer, but any medium-sized dog with a happy furry face would do.
  5. I can juggle.  This skill, however, has not been of practical use in the last 14 years.
  6. I prefer to drive barefoot.  I’ve heard this is illegal, but I’ve never bothered to find out if that’s true
  7. I haven’t completed my KPIs for this week and I don’t think I actually care that much.  Sorry to anyone who was hanging out for another little chart.

:: I tag…..

A random selection of people who’ve commented lately (that’ll teach ya!)








 :: which makes me wonder…

Are there any blokes reading this?  Chaps?  Fellas?  Men?  Boys?  Guys?  are you too shy to comment?  or hiding behind a female psuedonym?  Do speak up – we’re very inclusive here at machen/machen.

    You sure you don’t need a cat? I’ve got one going cheap. Occasional psychotic episodes.

    You gotta get a dog… unless you’re renting and it’s forbidden, of course. Funny, I can’t remember my life before having dogs.

    Hey, thanks for the tag – I was chuffed! It’s my first tag ever so I got a real buzz playing.

    Ewan MacGregor eh? He’s just the best – I am watching his reality-style show “Long Way Round” Sat.nights on ABC (I think it’s a repeat because I’m sure it’s years old now). If you haven’t seen it, please check it out – it’s brilliant and very funny.

    Found you through this meme you were replying to, and stopped to admire your beautiful photograph.

    We have a Miniature Schnauzer. Size was a consideration at the time we were looking for a dog. They’re 14 inches at the withers, about twenty pounds, and sturdy little guys. I’d love to get a Schnauzer someday, too.

    You don’t like seafood…ahhh, seafood is one of the great joys of my life. Maybe it’s something your parents have to start you on when you’re young?

    I’m female (you can’t tell from “j”) but I’ll get a guy (my husband) to look at your photo- he loves photography.
