Oh God. Meme Bandwagon!!!

Who Am I Really?

“You sort of starting feeling like a more serious blogger that proud day when a brilliant, inspiring blogger tags you into a meme.” Yep, this is exactly how I felt when the lovely Jac at tagged me in hers!
And who am I to ignore a lovely little bandwaggon?!

So, back to the meme. The rules are really simple:

- Post five random facts about yourself.

- Choose five deserving blogs with less than 200 followers to nominate and link into your post.

- Tell your nominees that they have been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog.

- Answer the five questions the tagger (in my case, Jac) has asked.

- Ask five questions of your chosen nominees.

- No tag-backs.

So, here goes:

Five Random Facts About Me

1. I was once heckled by a comedian. I know, audience members aren't normally heckled by the comedian they're watching, but Norman Lovett took a liking to my boobs for some reason.
2. I have an utter confusion with tomatoes and oranges. I KNOW which to eat in pasta and which to eat in fruit salad, but for some reason if I was told to pick up a tomato, I would go for an orange. And I think the husband has finally got used to bringing me tomatoes if I ask for oranges from the fridge...the thing is, I can't even blame it on oxygen deprivation brain damage sustained at the age of 23 as this is a problem I've had a lot longer than the damage!
3. I hate omelettes  Can't stand them. Eurgh. I can also only eat scrambled egg if I've made it, because otherwise it tastes of omelettes  Weirder still, I am willing to cook omelettes for my family and have been told I make a damned fine one.
4. I survived AFE. 

5. once I get cold, I can't warm myself again. I often end up needing a sleep to reset my brain. The GP doesn't believe me. I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm a hypochondriac.

 Jac's five questions

  1. What, if anything, have you done that you have later regretted?
    Met someone on a dating website and invited them back to my place for a weekend of debauchery. 1. get a photo first. 2. this is an incredibly stupid thing to do you dumb dumb 18 year old stupid dumb cow. 
  1. What do you consider to be your worst habit?
    Ignoring housework in favour of anything else. Crafting, shopping, going for a walk etc.
  1. What is your favourite thing to do to relax?
    Hmmmmm...... probably knitting.
  1. If you could travel back in time and spend a year living in another time, what era would you choose and why?
    I'm not sure, a year is a long time and without things like modern medicine and high speed broadband, I'm not sure how I'd get on.... but IF I could have modern medicine if needed and be able to use the net from my own time, then possibly a late 18th century farm. I've recently read The Garden Cottage Diaries by Fiona J. Houston, a woman who decided to try living as a 1790s crofter. Even she ended up dropping her “live in the time” principles when she go an infection. Penicillin FTW.
  1. Post up one picture that you feel defines your 2012

    This is a photo of an incredibly unassuming, south essex terraced house. Why this? Well it's MY home and I am incredibly happy here... My review of 2012 should give you an idea :D
