Tag, I’m It – A Belated 7 Things You Don’t Know About Me

A while ago I got tagged by the daily tee and threadchat with this ‘meme’, which means they linked to me from their “7 things you don’t know about me” posts, and now it’s my turn to respond. So here goes.

  • I was in the British Army, in the Grenadier Guards (one of our oldest regiments founded in 1656), and I was in the first gulf war. I’m not really someone that most people picture being in the army because i’m a bit of a non-conformist, rather outspoken, and a bit of a rebel but I thought it was a great experience
  • I love dogs, I haven’t had one for 17 years and I wish I could have one
  • I’ve had some strange jobs, i worked in a Hasbro toy factory for a couple of weeks, and on a pig farm as well
  • I have a motorcycle and a car and ride a bicycle almost everywhere, it’s madness I know, anyone want to buy a 40th anniversary edition of the Mini Cooper S
  • I was born in a small village in England called Lyndhurst and there is a very old churchyard there where Alice Hargreaves is buried, who was the Alice who Lewis Carroll wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for.
  • my first computer was a Mac Performa 6400
  • my sister is an artist, and my dad is a blues singer, my mum rents a cottage in Lyndhurst and they all got blogs for Christmas the year before last

and now i’ve got to tag some other bloggers who I want to hear from. So how about it Critical Sole, The Gala Daling, Fiona Long, MJ at the compete-tee-tion Blog, Widget at NeedCoffee.

    I had a Performa 6400, too! I remember there was some sort of introduction to the Performa movie-guided tutorial that came with it, feautring some woman who was VERY enthusiastic about it.
