I got 'tagged' a few days back but not knowing about tagging it has taken me some time to get around to responding - I won't go on to tag others simply because I don't know that many people to tag who would not already have been tagged, anyway I am prevaricating about the bush. . .

This is all Chrissie's fault so you can blame her!

The rules are to list 7 random facts/habits about yourself. The next rule is to choose people which I am wimping out of - so just the one rule really!

Seven random fact eh?


  1. I always imagined that being a public servant was for thick lazy people who just couldn't hack it in the private sector. Oh boy is THAT a wrong assumption. I'm working with some of the sharpest minds with energised and dedicated people who KEEP TURNING DOWN OFFERS from the private sector because they want to make government better.

  2. I loathe politicians that follow the crowd as much as I loathe those who think they are leading with vision even though their eyes are blinded by their own high opinion of themselves.

  3. I've always been a coffee snob and I didn't know it until 3 years ago.

  4. I have never been back to the place I was born.

  5. I can ask for a beer and directions to the toilet in 12 languages (the essentials!).

  6. Writing is something I like to do and would like to do more of - even though my job is largely writing.

  7. If I don't read 2-3 books each week it usually means I am having a bad week.

Yeehaaa! I thought you were ignoring me - LOL! You could of course tag Mrs Grendel...

And Random Fact 2. just had me laughing - I loathe the self-same thing...Mr Bush being right at the top of the pile.

And I've never been back to the place I was born either.

Here's language number 13 for you:

Peint o gwrw, os gwelwch yn dda
(pint oh goo-roo, oss gwel-uck un tha)


Ble mae ty bach?
(blay my tee bark)

in Welsh!

Um...should have said...

First one is "pint of beer, please" (os gwelwch yn dda is please)

and the second sentence is "where is the toilet" (literally 'little house'...ty (house) and bach (little)

Ignore you? Never! Figuring out what a Tag is took a little time. . .
