Ten things

I don’t normally do those so-called meme things, she said, but this one’s all right cos it’s not about ticking boxes but coming up with real things. It’s the “10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself” one.

  1. In late 2000/early 2001, I was the co-host of the Computer Chat show on Radio Pacific. I didn’t mean to. It was an accident, I swear. I haven’t mentioned much it because I used to be horribly embarrassed by it.
  2. I was saddened to discover that my favourite orphan from the “Annie” movie has grown up to be a fat housewife in real life.
  3. I have grade eight in choral speaking from the Trinity College in London. You’ll have to take my word for it – there was only one certificate and a dozen of us in the group.
  4. I have seen all the James Bond movies. However, as it was done as part of a completionist splurge, I only Bonded with about half of them.
  5. I can recite the name of all secretaries-general of the United Nations in chronological order. I cannot, however, guarantee that I’ll pronounce their names properly.
  6. I can write backwards, and upside down. I’d demonstrate, but it doesn’t work with a keyboard.
  7. When I was at tech, a visual arts tutor wanted me to switch from the communication stream into the visual arts stream cos I had the skillz.
  8. When I was 5, I entered a colouring competition in the Waikato Times and won tickets to see the Village People’s motion picture debut “Can’t Stop The Music”. It remains one of my favourite films, even though it is nine different shades of awful.
  9. I never learned to ride a bike. I had no motivation – everything was either within walking distance or too far to bike.
  10. Even though I’m a gangsta, sometimes I like to sit down and do cross-stitch kittens designs.
