The three for three meme

January 12, 2009

A few weeks back I was tagged by Danie as revenge for my tagging her in a previous meme. And now I’ve got round to doing my meme.

 

1. Top 3 non-work websites:

Facebook: I use this to keep up with what all my friends are up to. Even if I don’t use all the apps and play the stupid games on it, it is handy to keep tabs on others.

Flickr: I post mt photos here and like to browse what others (friends and random peeps) have uploaded

Ancestry: As one of my hobbies is tracing my family tree, I spend a lot of time on here searching census returns

2. Three favourite cocktails:

I’m going to have to draw a blank on this one as I don’t do cocktails – sorry

3. Top 3 karaoke songs:

I’d have to be *really* drunk to do karaoke, but the ones I’d sing along to are:

1. Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

2. Money for Nothing – Dire Straits

3. Summer of ‘69 – Bryan Adams

 

And now to tag three more people: Hedgewytch, Lisa and Devygyrl

Monday Meme

January 5, 2009

I hope/plan to do a meme every Monday in an attempt to get in to the habit of writing regularly. So here goes with a meme I’ve pinched from Devyl Girl.

 

1. What is your occupation right now:

I work for Royal Mail as a postman delivering mail in the Ditchling area of East Sussex. I’ve been on the same round for the past four years and I was covering it for holidays and sickness for the previous four. I cover part of the village, the outlying farms and an industrial estate – real mix. And once I get out on delivery I love the job.

2. What colour are your socks right now?

Black

3. What are you listening to right now?

“Once upon a time in the west” by Dire Straights – the live version on the Alchemy album

4. What was the last thing you ate?

Trifle. So small it was hardly worth bothering, but as my parents were feeding me I wasn’t going to complain 🙂

5. Can you drive a manual (stick-shift)?

Yes

6. Last person you spoke to on the telephone?

My friend Lisa, discussing going to the theatre tomorrow night

7. How old are you today?

43

8. What is your favourite drink?

Non alcoholic: tea.

Alcoholic: Single malt scotch whisky

9. Have you ever dyed your hair?

No

10. What colour did you dye your hair?

See answer 9

11. Favourite food?

Spaghetti carbonarra

12.  What was the last movie you watched?

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

13. Favourite day of the year?

Can’t think of a favourite day, I have a few days which I don’t like, but no favourite ones.

My alcoholic weakness

December 26, 2008

When it comes to alcohol, I have a weakness. Single malt Scotch whisky.

I don’t drink to excess (well not often), but I do like a wee dram every now and then. It helps calm the nerves after a stressful day.

My favourite? Probably Laphropaig. It’s an single malt from Islay. And it has a very pronounced smokey, peaty nose. Just opening the bottle allows enough aroma to escape to relax the mind.

However, I also drink other malt whiskies. And I have a small collection of them. At the moment my drinks cabinet contains the following:

Laphroaig 15yo

Glenmorangie Burgundy wood finish

Glengoyne 10yo

Macallen 18yo

Glenfidich

Glenfiddich Caoran Reserve 12yo

Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15yo

Glenfiddich Toasted Oak Reserve 12yo

Glenfiddich 1991 Vintage Reserve

Highland Park 15yo

Aberlour 10yo

Bruichladdich 15yo

Isle of Jura 10yo

Cardhu 12yo

So if you ever want to by me a present or get in my good books – you know what to get me!

I’ve been tagged

November 17, 2008

The Rules are simple:

Step #1 – Link to the person who tagged you:

I was tagged by Devyl Gyrl, one of my twitter friends. She’s one of those people who would do anything for her close friends.

Step #2 – Write Five Fun/Interesting Facts about yourself:

5 INTERESTING AND FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:

1.  I have a wide ranging taste in music: my iPod playlist regularly has Johnny Cash, ZZ Top, Meatloaf, Dire Straits, Dido, Elgar and Gregorian Chant in it.

2.  I regularly play cards with my friends Clive, Garry and Elaine. Despite teaching them how to play, I seem to be the one who loses most. Something wrong there.

3.  I got married over the blacksmith’s anvil at Gretna Green. [We’re divorced now though]

4.  I still have my original teddy bear that I was given when I was born. He sits on a shelf now in a protective plastic box

5.  I once performed the “bottle dance” in Fiddler on the Roof, solo. And I hate being in front of people, let alone on stage. On my own. And I can’t dance. Did I enjoy it? No, but I’m glad I did it.

Thanks for wasting a few minutes reading about me

Step #3 – Tag Six Other People and link to their blogs. Then let them know you’ve tagged them by Twittering/Plurking them or leaving a comment on their blog:

OK, so after a bit of thought I’ve come up with this list:

1. Clive [@CliveFlint] My best mate who I’ve known for more years than I care to remember; I just can’t shake him off 🙂

2. Lisa A good friend from Church.

3. Christine [@Mousewords] A writer and artist whose work I find enjoyable and inspiring to read.

4. Danie [@Danacea] A marketeer for an awesome shop.

5. Steve. He was an evangelist at Microsoft but he’s now sold his soul to the devil and joined their PR team

6. Shelley [@ShelleyFTR] A highly motivated business entrepreneur

Whether any of them will take up this challenge remains to be seen, but I hope some of them do.

And even if they don’t, I suggest that go and have a read of their blogs anyway.
