8 random facts about me meme

8 random facts about me meme

Its Friday, a time to wind down and chill, so I’m gonna respond to this little meme.

I’ve been tagged by Robin over at Fortune Watch (check out his blog for some great finance tips and pointers)

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

I’m not one for adhering to rules so in this regard I’m gonna reshape it a little and make 2 lists.

Random Personal

  1. I am a big fan of Carry On films
  2. I once left an aeroplane in a wheelchair (was it a small plane or a big wheelchair, you decide..)
  3. I cycle between 50 and 80 miles per week

  5. I used to wonder why I was born on the same day as  the bombing of Hiroshima

  7. I learnt I needed glasses by accident, prior to this I just assumed that the world was a little murky
  8. I follow the fortunes of Arsenal Football Club and love Thierry Henry

 Random Tech

    Hey Rob,

    Thanks for responding to the tag mate, some interesting reading…lol. Now with glasses on I still think the world is a little murky.

    And thanks for putting in a kind word for my blog.

    Take care and Cheers.

    Heh – Sounds a little bizare doesn’t it? The story behind it is kinda silly too.

    As you may or may not be aware, eyesight deterioration can be such a stealthy gradual thing. One day whilst with a lot of colleagues, milling about waiting for a delivery of some sort or other, a colleague proceeded to brag about his new ‘designer’ £200 glasses. Me enjoying a prank and a laugh and intent on bursting his bubble I whipped them away from him and ran up the platform with these Armani specs, saying something like ‘I got them now’ whilst he protested in dismay. I stopped after about a 100 yds or so and put them on and began to pose like some big ass. It was at that point I suddenley realised that everything was amazingly crisp and focused, I was literally dumbstruck and in awe of the clarity before me. The followig day I was in the opticians getting measured up ro correct my astigmatism.

    That was 12 years back. If it wasn’t for Giorgio Armani, I’d probably still be wondering why night driving was such an odd phenomenum. 😀

    I agree with Robin, even with perfect vision, I think the world is murky. 😀 80 miles of cycling a week?! I don’t even think I drive that! I’m impressed.

    Hi Angela

    I think you could both be right there! 🙂

    80 miles isnt so far..but yeah when you sit there and think of somewhere 80 miles away it does seem pretty far!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting 🙂

    I guess I’m not the only one that found the “I learnt I needed glasses by accident, prior to this I just assumed that the world was a little murky” fact amusing 😀 I guess because I thought the same thing when I first got my contacts.

    Great personal informative post 🙂

    By the way I finally did the “blog apocalypse” meme you tagged me with (took a while I know). Take care and have a great weekend!

    Hi Maria

    Cool, I’ll check it out 1st thing tommorrow 🙂

    I tried contacts recently, but just couldn’t get used to them. I had this week trial with them and went out one night with some friends and had a few beers and stuff, only to get home and spend like an hour trying to get them out of my eyes! I’ll make do with specs until i can muster the courage for laser eye surgery 😀

    Yea I’m meeting more and more people who aren’t huge fans of contacts! Later on I’m planning on getting laser eye surgery as well. I’m a little scared though. lol.

    A friend of mine recently had it done – he’d worn contacts for years. He’s had a few weeks of discomfort but is glad he’s had it done now though. He said he pantsed it at the time mind!
