20 things you may not know about me

I posted this on a forum earlier this year and thought I would share on my blog.

20 things you may not know about me

  1. When I was very young, I had blond, curly hair and blue eyes.  The hair may be no more but I still have the eyes.
  2. I didn’t sit up until I was 1 year old and didn’t walk until I was 2 years old.  I was obviously in no rush to join the rat race.
  3. I have interviewed two Doctor Whos – Tom Baker (#4) and Peter Davison (#5).  I have also met Jon Pertwee, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy (numbers 3, 6 and 7 respectively).
  4. My favourite cartoon character is Marvin the Martian and my favourite comic book hero is Spider-Man.
  5. I once held Benny Andersson’s (ABBA) beer while he signed an autograph for me.
  6. Jill Dando’s parents are my godparents.  The Dandos were our next door neighbours.
  7. When emigrating from the UK, my parents considered Canada, Rhodesia (now known as Zimbabwe) and Australia.  I’m happy that Australia won.
  8. I love apple sauce mixed in with vanilla ice cream.  Strangely, I don’t like apples.
  9. The greatest album of all time is “Dusty In Memphis”.
  10. My first proper job (ie. needing to lodge my first tax return) was washing dishes in a Chinese restaurant.
  11. I was a youth group leader at the YMCA when I was 16.
  12. The first time I got drunk was when I was 11 by secretly drinking cider at a Harvest Festival when no one was looking.  I hardly drink these days.
  13. I hate shopping.
  14. Mathematics was my best subject at school.
  15. I once dated the runner up to Mr Gay Adelaide.  He should have won IMHO.  Great kisser. 😉
  16. I once chopped a one inch thick piece of solid wood in half using my bare hand.
  17. My personal values are diversity, tolerance, simplicity, helping others and humour.
  18. The first concert I went to was Cleo Laine (part of a school trip).  ABBA was my second concert.
  19. I love my toast toasted on one side only and slightly burnt.  With marmalade on top.
  20. My favourite colour is green.
