There seems to be a fair amount of not-so-scary-skeletons coming out of many bloggers closets at the moment…and thanks to Alison Kerr now I get to dish my dirt, as it were.

So, what’s the deal? Getting tagged means I write 10 things about me that you couldn’t find out the usual t’internetty way. Which is hard…as I’m not backward about coming forward.
I’ve racked my brains, and believe me there is a lot to rack, and I suppose the following points will be something new to you, dear reader, and they won’t get me snaffled by the long arm of the thin blue line.
1. I play the guitar
When I say play, I look at it gathering dust in the corner of the office and think I must tune it. Then I can have hours of fun annoying the neighbours with House of the Rising Sun or Married with Children…for that is the extent of my musicality.
2. I’m a flibberdy-gibbert
My mind is sparrow-like. Some find it confusing conversing with me. I don’t and I do it all the time.
3. I have to remember to eat
It’s not that I have a problem with food. It is good. I have a problem remembering.
4. I’m a bit forgetful
Darn it, I’ve forgotten what I was going to say.
5. I wrote a poem and read it out at an open mic night
It goes along to the tune of the Pink Panther. It’s called Conversation and about being afraid of mis-understandings. I had to drink a lot just to stand behind the mic. They loved it. I haven’t been back.
6. I love my car
I know it’s not Green (it’s yellow). I know it’s more environmentally friendly to get the bus, the train, even walk (which I do often). But it’s small, funky, convertible (not in a Transformers way) and highly impractical for carrying anything bigger than two people and a toothbrush. Oh, and it gets 57mpg.
7. I have 511 books (I counted)
Since getting rid of about 400 books my collection is sadly depleted and over-read. My birthday is in June. I like book tokens. Thank you.
8. I have 5 ‘O’ Levels
…hundreds of swimming badges, a certificate in Cellar Management and Basic Groundcare (not taken at the same time), and a cycling proficiency medal. I am very proud to be a proficient cyclist. Oh, and I got a Gold Medal for skiing when I was 12 – swoosh, swoosh.
9. I want to move
I’ve lived in the same house off-and-on since 1976. It’s time for a change.
10. I’m lazy
So I’m told. In my defence: Procrastination is part of the creative process. And yes, washing the dishes is creative and therefore needs some procrastination before getting hands wet.
Now I’m supposed to tag seven people but quite honestly I’m not sure I know seven bloggers that haven’t already been tagged. So I’ll reiterate MrUku’s point – this is an open invitation. Join in if you must. Feel the weight lift from your shoulders as you pour forth some of the skeletons that have been locked away for years.
It is liberating.
That is all.
