Six things meme

I was tagged by Stu Savory at Eunoia with this meme.


The rules are:

  • Link to the person who tagged you;
  • Post the rules on your blog;
  • Write six random things about yourself;
  • Tag six people at the end of the post;
  • Let each person know they've been tagged;
  • Let the tagger know when your entry is up;
  • Link to the tagees , when their entries are up; ....so here goes....
  1. I have broken or dislocated every one of my fingers, but not my thumbs
  2. I met my childhood hero, Neil Armstrong, at Prestwick Airport, Scotland
  3. I was born and raised a Roman Catholic but the Vatican and I parted company in 1980 when I was 17. I now consider myself an agnostic. I am too lazy to be an atheist.
  4. I have been a member of the Labour Party since I was 21.
  5. I once peed through the railings of Buckingham Palace (I was 18 at the time.. the follies of youth!)
  6. I used to have pet rats – Rancid and Cuddles – I would love to have rats but with four cats in the house they may not last long....

I won’t pass this on but if you want to have a go then feel free!

Thanks for doing the meme, Jams!

re 2) I've met no astronauts, but know two cosmonauts, longtime Mir crew.

re 3) "Agnostics just don't have the balls to be Atheists" . Quoting someone there, but have forgotten whom.

re 6) the town of Hameln has some rats again, you could apply for the job of Pied Piper :-)

What do you do with your fingers?!

The Lone Beader said...

Cats AND rats??? LOL

I am agnostic, as well... I think atheism is a bit extreme...

And, fascinating that you met Neil Armstrong! What was that like?

jams o donnell said...

The not wife is an atheist.. I'm just too lazy!

I was an immigration officier for several years. I was sent on relief summer duty from Heathrow to Prestwick Airport for a month in 1989.

A private jet landed with a group of people on a golfing holiday, including Neil Armstrong. IOs usually don't show a reaction to celebs but I was a bit like Wayne and Garth with the "We're not wirthy". Actually I said "wow!.... You were my childhood hero" He gave a small smile.

It sounds like you are very accident prone. I always enjoy reading these, but am glad not to pick them up at busy times like this.
