Ten things

1. I am scared of the dark.

2. I have fifteen piercings and five tattoos.

3. The people I love the most are also the people who make me laugh the most; my daughter, my Other Half and my beloved sister Fifi.

4. I can ride a motorbike but not a horse. In fact I am scared of horses. And cows. And goats. And geese.

5. I've lived at twenty different addresses, and was once homeless for six weeks.

6. I adore the music of Barry Manilow. Seriously.

7. The things I'll never tell anyone are the things I need to say the most.

8. I love shoes.

9. I never loved my ex-husband.

10. If I came to your house and you made me a cheese sandwich I couldn't eat it. If I made myself a cheese sandwich at your house it would be fine. Shop-bought sandwiches are, for some reason, acceptable.

Ooh, so is your secret there yet?

I shall have to do my own list of secrets one of these days, but I'm not sure I understand about the cheese sarnies. Is it just cheese, or would ham be acceptable to you?

i haven't done that yet, no.

it's just a cheese thing - if you present me with a sandwich you've already made i don't know whether you had the cheese wrapped properly, or if bits had gone all crusty and you just cut them off.

ham would be fine. no pickle for me though, thanks.

TOO MUCH INFORMATION !!!! The blogging community did not need that horrible mental image.

Hmmmm...I guess Barry Manilow is better than admitting to loving Neil Diamond!! (blush)
Wiping shower walls dry....eeeuugghhh...i'd rather not know.

I cannot eat egg mayonnaise sandwiches, or indeed eggs of any description, unless I have lovingly prepared them myself.

PS. I have been to see Barry Manilow in concert. Sheer class.

You're very brave surly girl, especially about the Barry Manly-nose thing.

(Being a typical polite Canadian, I won't even call you a freak over that. ) :-)

kyahgirl - insult away, everyone else has (apart from ms chick but that's just cos i said i love shoes).

ossie - not all that bad, no. when combined with bad personal hygiene, a rubbish attitude and an irritating propensity to say the same thing fifteen times in a row it wears a bit thin tho. curses - why did i marry him?

Well, yes, its the pack thing. Lowest mind rules the mob and all that :-)

If you come to my house, I will gladly let you make your own cheese sandwiches. In fact, I might even pay you to do so. I'm not the 'hostess with the mostest'.

I LOVE Barry Manilow. Even as a 17-year-old I was unable to hide my love of the Copacabana.

4. Sensible. Teeth/hooves/beaks & independent will. Be afraid. My grandad was in the cavalry, and hated horses.

2. FIFTEEN! Do the detectors at airports start bleeping as soon as you look at them? I have enough problems if I forget a key. I can't even think of that many places to pierce!

[Not intending to sound like anyone's mother. Or asking for a list. I'll be quiet now.]

7. True for everyone. With me it's usually "Can I leave now? I really, really need a wee."

14 September, 2005 14:29  
Blogger surly girl chimed in with...

yup, fifteen. i haven't set of the metal detectors for a few years tho - more piercings then, and most with rings in rather than the studs most have now.

left ear - 4 + top of ear
right ear - 4 + tragus
nose - 3
lip - 1
tongue - 1

used to have septum and nipples done too...but a bike accident put paid to the nips and the septum one was my wedding present from the ex. who says romance is dead?

Um, what's a tragus? I have visions of a LVL 15 magic user being dragged along, robe flapping behind him, to have a random piercing put in. Or is that displaying a tragic geek male adolescence?

tragus is that little nobbly bit above your earlobe where your ear joins your head.

can you tell i'm not a qualified doctor?
