Eight Things



I have been tagged by the lovely Ali, so here are eight things about me you probably don't know:

1. I desperately want to visit Japan, and hope to next year, ahh the sushi, the design, the cherry blossom, and possibly the Fuji Rock Festival (always has the best line-up!).

2. One day when I was probably about three I took my dolls for a walk in a little dolly pram I had, I walked around to the shop near my house while my mum was in the shower. I can still remember doing it and feeling quite independent.

3. I had a backstage pass, access all areas, for Radiohead in 1998 on the Ok Computer tour, but being 16 and rather shy could not bring myself to go back there. Instead I sent one of the sound engineers back with my cd sleeve and a card for them to sign, I have all their signatures in silver pen (Colin writes his name like a face, so cute!) but will always wonder what could have been.

4. I really really dislike having my picture taken, but I love taking photo's.

5. My perfume that I think I will always wear, and certainly have for the past several years is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel, I love it so much.

6. Unfortunately I find it much easier to be certain about the things I dislike rather than the things I like, however I am trying to make a concerted effort these days to like more and dislike less.

7. Quote: "Tonight the moon is a mirrorball, light flickers from across the hall" U2 - If you Wear That Velvet Dress, always sticks in my mind, the way he sings it, the thought of a moon being a mirrorball, too perfect for me. (I am not a serious quote person clearly!)

8. I have 4,000 photo's on my computer and they aren't backed-up, eek, I am on to it this week. I am rather slack about some things.

I tag everyone! I'd love it if you join in.

Love the post! I always enjoy reading fun facts about my favorite blogging friends! :) I love the story about pushing your dolls around. I had favorite dolls that I would push around in real baby strollers! :)

Robin said...

Great list! I also love your doll story. Oh dear, backing up photos...that's something I never think about and probably should!

Sara Christine said...

It's so nice to learn more about you! Cute glasses, by the way. :) I might just have to do this too...

ali said...

Well, aren't you a little cutie. I'm so glad you responded to my call!

I recommend an external hard drive for those 4,000 photos. Mine is great, and makes my computer much quicker. :)

Nice to see you (I'm assuming thats you) and learn more about you. I'm still yet to post a picture of myself on my post. Something very scary about it for me!

Sarah said...
