I’ve been tagged by Jeni at Heathen Vegan.

  • Link the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  • Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
  • Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links.
  • Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here goes…

1. Of the various places I’ve lived, two were 7500km (4700 miles) apart, but in the same country.

2. I sleep with Pooh bear (hot water bottle version) who, along with Mr Thrifty, keeps me warm at night.

3. I like snails and think they’re very cute (part of the blame must go to the singing snails in Flushed Away, though I did like snails before I saw FA). I feel really bad when I accidentally step on one. Even those found blissfully munching my prized veggies are merely relocated.

4. Porridge oats make me gag… it’s not the oats per se, it’s the gummy texture. I literally cannot swallow a mouthful of the stuff… even the aroma makes me feel slightly queasy. I love granola, though, and eat it almost every day.

5. I once held a wombat, a koala and a Tasmanian devil (not at the same time!) The koala smelled menthol-y.

6. Growing up, my Barbie doll had GI Joe as her boyfriend. Neither Barbie nor I thought much of Ken.

7. More childhood weirdness: I thought the meal-time blessing my dad said was “Bless this food to our body’s shoes”. I found it most enigmatic that my dad should request that our food be blessed to our shoes until one day I realised my dad was actually saying, “Bless this food to our body’s use”. Doh!

(Gad, that took as long as the 7 things!)


  1. Thanks for tagging me and I’ll see if I have time to join in. In anycase I’ll make a link to your nice blog!

  2. I guess I better start thinking of weird and random facts about myself then. 🙂

  3. I too have a thing for Snails!! I LOVE them and pick them up off the path and put them somewhere they’re not going to get stomped on. I also pick them off my veggies too.

    This meme sure is fun – I love learning weird stuff about people. That blessing story is just too funny!

  4. cool facts. This meme rocks 🙂

    we don’t have too many snails out here in Washington state (they are cute and small), but we do have mega slugs. I do relocations on them too. I get mad at my dog when he steps on them.
