Kreativ blogger award – seven things you didn’t know about me

Firstly – Happy Easter! I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend and have eaten suitably horrendous quantities of mini-eggs. I know I have.

Before I began my weekend of gorging, I was tagged by the fabulous Linda Jones of You’ve Got Your Hands Full, asking me to tell you seven previously undisclosed things about myself. If you haven’t come across Linda before, where have you been? I have yet to meet Linda in person, but I am already in awe of her. Everywhere I go in the virtual world, Linda seems to be there already. She is amazing!

Anyway, I have been thinking about this all weekend and to be honest I’ve been struggling. I think I’m pretty open most of the time and I’ve been having a hard time coming up with things that I won’t have told someone already. Obviously I can’t mention the bank heist, and David made me promise to keep my three way romp with him and Samantha under wraps in the run up to the election. Ergh, I have made myself feel rather queasy even joking about that one. Quick, change the subject.

So I’m wracking my brains here for seven things that you don’t know about me, but that will make me seem intruguing and glamourous. I’m hoping if I just type and don’t think about it, something will spill out onto the screen.

So here goes:

  1. OK, here’s one I’m quite pleased with. In 2008 I made a New Year’s Resolution to read 100 books in a year. I was fed up with having piles of half-read books lying around the house, and needed some motivation to finish them. I managed 104, which I think is pretty good going for a year. Um…ok…now I am stuck. I just asked Bee for ideas and she couldn’t think of anything. Does this mean I am just very honest, or just very dull??
  2. “Have you ever been in prison?” asks Bee. No, I’ve never even been arrested. “Lame,” she says.
  3. “Do you play a musical instrument?” asks the young boy on my sofa who is draped over Bee. Actually, yes, this could count as one. At school I played the guitar and the cello. I had an accordion for a while too. Not terribly glamourous though.
  4. I have never been married or owned a house. (Commitment issues)
  5. I’ve had sex at the top of Glastonbury Tor. (Exhibitionist)
  6. I have a giant poster of Zac Efron on my study wall. It was a Christmas present from Bee, I didn’t actively seek it out and buy it myself. He is 22 though, so it’s fine.
  7. I have a naked picture of myself on my bedroom wall. That was a Christmas present too actually. I’m nearly 32 though – is that still fine?

    Goodness me – Glastonbury Tor you say?! An intriguing list indeed and thank you for passing it on. I shall go and dig deep for some interesting factoids about moi.

      Yep! That is my best sex location story. There were other people there too playing flutes and what not, but it was dark – no families on Sunday afternoon outings taken by surprise.

    Thank you for the tag! Naked photos at nearly 32? I think you can be forgiven being four years younger than me! And that Glastonbury Tor one is an interesting fact indeed, not much shelter up there I imagine?

      The idea of the photos was that we would want something to look back on when we are properly old. It was basically the result of a dinner party, descending into drunken naked photography as always. The Tor is fairly drafty – you definitely need to huddle together for warmth…

    Love your list! ;0)

    • 6 April, 2010 / 8:35 pm

      Thank you! I was relieved to eventually be able to come up with seven things!

      I didn’t realise it was him until half way through when he took off the mask, or I’d have never agreed in the first place. He claimed he was Nick Clegg.

    Darling!!!! Even though I was v busy truffling chocolate eggs I took some time out to do your meme. Thanks for the honour and have fun finding out about the REAL Emma K!!

    • 6 April, 2010 / 8:36 pm

      I very much appreciate you taking the time out from your hectic schedule, lounging around in diamond encrusted mules, being fed cream eggs by oiled young men etc etc….

  5. 6 April, 2010 / 7:24 pm

    Oi. Excuse me please don’t say such things about me, it’s not true!!! I am well past my sell-by date and totally knackered and could never blog as well as you do. So there. Considering my list started with throwing rubber things at a stripper’s star attraction this may be apparent.
    Brilliant list by the way.
    Good Evening.

      Linda you are far too modest. Your amazing productivity is my inspiration. Every morning I wake up and chant ‘I must be more like Linda, I must be more like Linda..’
      Ok, maybe that is slightly stretching the truth, but you are most certainly on my list of ‘women I know and admire online who seem to get a fabulous amount done’ :-) x

      If you’re like me you’ll find it much harder than it feels it ought to be. The result I fear of spilling my inner most thoughts to the cyberverse on a daily basis. (Is ‘cyberverse’ an actual think or did I just come up with some kind of funky new term??)

    I am not sure I’ll be able to go up on Glastonbury tor again!!!

    I wasn’t married until last year, still kinda wish we hadn’t done it I liked being different. Never owned a house either no desires too!

    Very cool to find out more about you

    I was too much of a feardy cat to put any sex confessions on my blog incase the boy read them and wondering why oh why he only found me after my sell by date.

    • 9 April, 2010 / 7:26 am

      Boring! Maybe I will start a special sex confessions meme to find out your secrets :-)
