My Favourite Subject

I've discovered that I've been tagged at dusty spider's place. It's the one where I have to list 7 unusual/peculiar things about myself. Here is the easy bit:
  1. I'm prone to exaggeration. Did I hear someone say that they'd gathered that?
  2. I surprise my family and friends by driving at the speed limit in my old car, as opposed to 20 mph wherever, but only when conditions are favourable, obviously.
  3. I've submitted some of my embroidery projects for publication and they have all been published.
  4. I sunbathed topless in a hot country in my 20s.
  5. Since reaching the age of 30, I am usually the only person on the beach to be fully clothed, as well as sporting a large hat and sunglasses, with a towel draped over my legs. Oh, have you spotted me?
  6. I wore hot pants and very long black suede boots in the late 60s/70s.
  7. In my late teens, early twenties, I sometimes went out looking like a bit of a strumpet. Sorry, was that the same one as before, but worded differently?

Is that it, then? I could have gone on for a lot longer. Next time could we have 500 things about me and just one person to tag? I'm not desperately interested in what anyone else has to say.

Now for the difficult bit. It would be much easier if I only had to tag one person. I've been out of touch for a while, so I don't know who to tag. I've taken a quick look round and I don't think the following people have been tagged yet, so here's my list.

grit

working mum

debra-in-france

farming-frenchstyle

mid-lifer

isadora

sweet irene

I apologise in advance if you have been tagged before, or if you really didn't want to join in with this sort of thing!

Help - what's tagging? I'm new to this blogging lark! Will gladly oblige if you let me know!

Hi grit and working mum - Re 'tagging'. It's a meme game with an added extra. See http://thedailymeme.com/what-is-a-meme. In particular the 5th paragraph.

They are a bit of fun, or a pain in the bum, or a combination of both. As far as I know you don't incur a penalty if you decide that you have to pass!! Certainly no punching or kissing. This is a respectable site, you know!!

You've probably got the idea, now. The idea with this one is to tell us 7 unusual/peculiar things about yourself and then 'tag' 7 other people to do the same. 7 is a lot, isn't it? These things have to die a natural death eventually, I'm sure.

Thanks mean mom - I am now enlightened. Will have a think and then post my seven peculiar things.
