Six Random Things About Me

Random splatters by Caroline in Corel Painter

Soulbrush popped in and has inspired me to tell 6 random things about myself. (You can see hers here).

To make them as random as possible I'm using a random word generator to prompt me:
  1. chopped - I took a term of Karate when I was 22 - I stopped after that because I felt the instructor was ogling me too much and besides I was having a lot of difficulty remembering the forms.
  2. prolonged - well the obvious one is that I've been off-work since 1996 but that's not new so how about a more positive one - when I was in my teens I was did a 12 hour sponsored dance and enjoyed almost every moment of it...
  3. club - I'm not currently a member of any club but I have been in the past a member of the following sorts of clubs: archery, bridge, chess, go, TM, yoga.
  4. undoing - my undoing has been chocolate, and now unsweetened cocoa! But is that news? No probably not... well how about a terrible tendency to have things stop working as soon as I've publicly claimed that they are working... do you think mentioning it now will take its power away?
  5. institution - I went to Warwick to do Maths - it had been an institute of Mathematics before it was even a university - but the reason I went there was because it was nearer home than most of my other options...
  6. flags - Irises are one of my favourite flowers. The Yellow Flag Iris is gorgeous but a bit too big for our town garden's pond.
If you fancy having a go at this I really recommend using that random word generator to nudge you.

ha ha good one, are you asure he was oggling you, or were you ogling him?

SB - well he might simply have been disapproving of my bright pink lycra which was not standard karate kit!

Using the random word generator is such a fun idea!
I love to dance, but I'm not sure if I'd love dancing for 12 hours - that's quite an accomplishment - as is your #5 - I am in awe, being somewhat mathematically-challenged, myself.
Perhaps now that you've let #4, know that you're 'on to it,' it will stop working...one can hope!
