I have been tagged by hadriana's treasures to tell you six random things about myself.
I once arrived at a party after a long convoluted journey to get there, went straight upstairs to the loo then came out of the bathroom and fell down the stairs. I banged my head on the wall and ended up in Casualty with concussion which later became two black eyes. No, I had not been taking anything - the heel had come off my shoe and I just lost my balance. Once back from the hospital I spent the rest of the time in the corner of the room with a banging headache and feeling miserable. It was too far away from home for anyone to volunteer to drive me back and the shock my parents had when I returned the following morning - well, you can imagine.
When I was young I had an imaginary friend. Nothing odd about that really, except that mine was a headmistress called Katherine Anderson who had a sister called Victoria
I can't ride a bike, so I ride a trike instead.
I once fell into Regents Park lake whilst out boating with a couple of friends. It is quite deep in the middle, I lost my shoes and a crowd gathered at the side laughing at us. This was in the days before mobile phones (although I suppose it would have got wet anyway) so we walked to Baker Street Station, rang my parents and sat on the pavement waiting for them. All the passengers on the many many buses that passed us had a right old laugh.
I love all the beach communities along the USA west coast and once got obsessed with the idea of living in Santa Barbara. If the means had presented themselves, who knows?
I once won a trip to Bangkok but it was just for one. I stayed in a suite in one of the top hotels, had two bathrooms and a chambermaid sitting outside the room to tidy it each time I left. I palled up with two American guys also staying at the hotel, one of whom asked me to pretend to be his wife so that the three of us could go to the red light district without him being hassled by women of the night. I agreed, but they hassled both of us instead - 'you want threesome?'
Right, now it's my turn to find six bloggers to do the same and I've selected
just a moment of miscellany
I wonder if these tag posts are the blogging equivalent of chain letters. I never send emails like that on to anyone - I want that noted in my defence.
