Wish List

Deborah asked me what I want for my birthday and in truth I'm not sure, but I have got a wishlist so if anyone's interested... it's now in the links bit

Sometimes I feel like I'm banging my head against a brick wall. I wonder why I bother trying to explain something to people and providing good solid information to them when they can't even be bothered to click a link, instead preferring to run around like headless chooks.

Why let common sense get in the way of a good panic?


I feel better now.

8 things about me

This has been going around blogs for a while but Rosamundi tagged the readers of hers so I thought I'd give it a try. There are some things that people might know, but other things, maybe not. I've tried to avoid stuff I witter on about here.

1. I hate DIY stores. They do my head in. I'm ok for the 15 minutes it takes to look at the homeware stuff, the paint charts and the kitchens and then I lose my will to live.

2. I have had a crush on David Essex for as long as I can remember. This drives Matt nuts, but given his age I'm not going to run off with him anytime soon. Plus I have a bigger crush on my husband (ahhhh).

3. When at dance school I nearly got arrested for dancing in the streets a la fame. We were protesting about the freezing of student grants. We protested a lot in those days. I also know more people than I'd like to admit who have been arrested (and aquitted) for some quite serious things.

4. I am a life long Labour supporter (blame my liberal, reactionary, middle-class leftie parents for taking me canvassing as a child) and have strayed since Tony Blair got in. I think I'd be stuck by lightening if I voted Tory though. I certainly couldn't live with the guilt.

5. I hate John Howard (Australia's PM) more than I hate Blair and Bush. He'd have to be out of power before I consider going back for anything more than a holiday.

6. I can bite my toenails (but I don't)

7. I have a weakness for musicals and any saturday night show that incorporates sequins, dancing or show tunes.

8. I love books. That can be blamed on my parents (see above) giving me a book allowance as well as pocket money.
