Seven Random Things about me and a picture...

The lovely Jules over at Just Jules was kind enough to pass this award along and ask us to present seven random facts about ourselves... we then have to pass it on to some other worthy bloggers... so here we go.... are you sitting comfortably? then I'll begin..........





Random 1..... I am very afraid of moths... it doesn't matter the size or the shape, don't like any of them this has, over the years, manifested into not liking anything that flutters, butterflies, birds, those horrible beetles that open their crustacean little bodies and fly.. all of the above.

Random 2.... I met his Gorgeousness in Spain and had the absolute best first date of my life, had to marry him, knew on the first night I met him I would marry him. I slipped a note into his pocket telling him that it was the very best first date I had ever had.

Random 3......I cannot live without Branston Pickle... wherever in the world I go I am going to have to get hold of some Branston... it's been harder over the last few years due to restrictions on what you can bring into the country but I recently bought some online so that will be it from now on.

Random 4.....I still have a prayer book given to me at my Christening when I was two months old. It always amazes me when I look at it because through all the moves I've made in my life and all the different things that have gotten lost this little white prayer book is still with me.

Random 5.....I played the oboe in high school and was a member of the school band as well as the county orchestra. I secretly still wish I was in a band or a choir it's just so awesome to hear a group of people come together and make wonderful music. The oboe on it's own however sounds like a duck call!!!

Random 6.....I was a bridesmaid for my eldest sister a million years ago and the best man was none other than famous Brit crime writer Ian Rankin. He went to school with my sister and was her husbands best friend. Check out his website.

Random 7.....I have a thing about spotting famous people... when I'm at the airport I am always on the look out, but they're obviously not languishing in coach like me so I'm yet to see anyone. There was a time we spotted a Canadian rock band, can't remember what they were called!! Once on a shopping trip to Edinburgh, we saw the Queen and Prince Philip, Kirk Douglas and Linda Evans all in one day!!! My friend totally cracked me up by shouting out to Kirk D. She was calling out, Kirky Baby, take me home!!! it a very broad Scottish accent. I am seriously plotting a weekend in Tybee Island to see if I can get a look at Miley, Greg and Kelly... really I'm hoping that JT will be with Kelly and when he see's me it's all over...sorry Mr McG.

Hope you liked my seven pieces of randomness, the picture is us on our first date, the note is in my hand!!! ahhh.

I love your random things! I also knew on our first date that Mr Bambi was the man for me. Isn't it a great feeling to know you did it right??

OMG I am, as ever totally wetting my pants at you. You're so funny, please come and live in Suffolk? Get this, I am a flautist...played for the country orchestra etc, even studied music at uni. WE COULD HAVE SAT NEXT TO EACH OTHER AT ORCHESTRA, oh the giggles...

Most impressed at I. Rankin btw. I spent years of my life travelling the world, about 8 I think, either business or first class. The whole time I only saw one famous person...erm....Anne Robinson, who I already know to be an utter cow as she's the mother of a friend of a friend. And she was as well. I feel so deprived of sleb spots. I was too busy being square and doing my work. Oh i just remember two very funny stories about travelling, hmm...wonders if I can weave in to 30 secrets..?

Branston, well it's ok. I can see why you might miss it, but believe me it's soooo 'salad cream' these days? I can source you something better. Invite me over and I might stash some in my suitcase...

I filled out a list of 7 random things too. I forgot to list that I was related to 2 of the members of Devo! Kinda fun.

I have only spotted B list actors. I did see Eric Clapton in the grocery store buying milk. He's definitely A list.

LMAO... You all made me laugh and nearly spray my screen with a little RED!!! hahhahahahaaa. My God if I saw Eric buying milk I would soooo embarrass myself!!!!!

Molly said...

Thanks for tag - I'll get on to it shortly.
Great list of yours - I'm so with you on the pickle. I 'discovered' it last year in the UK, brought a whole lot back and then duh, realised it was easily available here. Yay.
And I'm also a complete schleb spotter, tho' I can't always claim that they're A list (except for Bono(!!!), on the beach in Cape Town) - drives my husband mad ...
