I've been hit too

Well tagged that is. Laural tagged me for the Eight Random Facts Meme. So ok...

The rules:1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.2. People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules.3. At the end of your blog you need to tag 8 people and post their names.4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

8 Random facts/habits

1. I have my tongue pierced

2. I kind of dislike people looking at me…according to my Mum; I have always been like this. I blush furiously and my mind goes blank when I feel I’ve been put on the spot. This is quite bizarre considering I have always been an ‘eccentric’ dresser (goth, punk, hippy) and my career of choice…..(I teach)

3. My hair has been every colour under the sun, with dreads or braids; purple, green, red, blue, pink – it’s quite a boring henna red now, and long.

4. I hate confrontation or arguments. I’m naturally a calm person, with occasional outbursts of anger.

5. I’m not a randomly tactile person. Don’t get me wrong, I hug and kiss the BF, family and close friends, but not general friends or acquaintances. And I hate it when people just keep touching you in conversation for no apparent reason.

6. I’m not really a baby person. I was never brought up round babies and I just don’t get that maternal feeling. Hand me a newborn and I freeze, like a rabbit in headlights. Now kittens…….I just adore kittens

7. I’m really bad at maths. I can deal with money ‘n’ stuff – I know if the shop keeper’s ripped me off, but fractions, geometry, algebra, and stuff like that, I just don’t ‘get’. In fact, I think I’m actually a little dis-numeric. I think that’s the right word anyway. I transpose numbers all the while. My first job out of University was for British Telecom as an Operator, and I hated it when people wanted me to read them the numbers rather than have the automated answer, because I knew that I would end up reading it out wrong. I’d get them to read the number back to me, pretending that I was checking that they’d written it down right, but really I was checking I’d read it out right. About 50% of the time, I’d switched numbers around without realising.

8. Everything I love is bad for me…..I love the sun, but I’m a little photosensitive and if I don’t wear sunblock, I came out in a bad rash. I love flowers, but I get hayfever. I love chocolate, and ice-cream, and nice bread, and cheese, and cake. Food doesn’t like me though. I put weight on easily *sigh* and as I’m only about 5’2” it shows. Luckily, I also love salad and fruit.

Well, that's all about me then folks. If anyone else would like to volunteer a hit, they're very welcome..... ZaftigMomma, Devilninny, SewingLori? Go on, you know you want to!
