Hello! I’ve had the very great honour of being tagged by Leo! Here goes, 7 random / weird facts about myself:

  1. I’m very particular about my tea. First put the (Typhoo) tea bag in the DESIGNATED tea cup. Pour on boiling water. Leave to brew for yay long. Give the tea bag a good squeeze before removing it. Add one teaspoon of unrefined cane sugar. Then add a small amount of skimmed milk. I’ll know if it’s made any other way and I won’t drink it!

  1. I can sit on my (dread locked) hair.

  1. Vices: I don’t drink but I smoke (like a trooper). Oh, and I’m a banana junkie – gimme a high five Leo!

  1. My left thumb is double jointed.

  1. In May this year I did the Playtex Moonwalk - a marathon distance (yep, 26.2 miles, that’s twenty six point two miles) around central London at night. The purpose of it was to raise awareness and money for breast cancer treatment & research. To this end it was very successful but I’ve got two moans about that night when around 15,000 people (mainly women) took to the streets: 1) It was apparently impossible to get a woman to send us off from the starting line. Instead the start of the walk was heralded by some sleazy DJ-type bloke who shared a couple of very inappropriate, not funny jokes (including one about what us “ladies” might get up to with the blokes leaving night clubs!!!) 2) There wasn’t a single cup of tea to be had the whole night! (I would have thought some tea company somewhere would have bitten their hand off for that kind of PR). The words “piss up” and “brewery” come to mind. Sorry, I’m in a bah-humbug mood (read periodic). Oh and, marathon runners – I salute you.

  1. Favourite foods: green chilli, chick peas, mangos, Indian sweets, chocolate, marzipan & cherry liqueurs.

  1. I always sleep on my left side (usually snuggled up to my girlfriend) with the cover over my right ear – when I was a kid I was afraid of the Bogey Man biting my ear off.

In return, I’m tagging:

Thanks for the tag!

Luckily, you have your whole life to get a tattoo. I think it's so cute when old ladies decide it's time to get a little flower on their ankle. There's no rush!

I like your facts and totally relate to one of your favorite foods. I'll leave which one that might be as a mystery, cause it's way too obvious.

Wow about the long, long dreads. So very hot.
Another wow for the insanely long walk, good for you!

Great list!

femmeismygender and H - yes, it's quite a party trick! Remind me to show you next time we meet up! And, by the way, I think I've made myself revels-intolerant x

Tina and Greg - yep, I was quite proud of myself. The last 0.2 miles was INCREDIBLY long!

Honey - I hope I won't be a little old lady by the time I get one done! Mango obviously.
