Well, I’ve just been tagged by Emily who writes one of my favourite blogs, Doing it all again. So this means I have to give you all 8 random facts about me:

  1. I’m a distant relation of the godfather of English Football, Sir Stanley Matthews
  2. I have a fascination with the diabolo, and intend that this summer I shall finally learn how to get two going at once
  3. I once saw a ghost labrador
  4. I can walk on my knees in the lotus position. I once “walked” the length of a gym doing this, now I suspect that would hurt a lot
  5. My father claims to have one up on Pele, in that he once scored a goal from the halfway line, and Pele famously didn’t.
  6. I used to play competitive chess, and gave it up when I got fed up with being beaten by 7 year old child geniuses
  7. My mother claims to have invented the “weather map as comedy device”, as she sent a sketch using this to That Was The Week That Was, which appeared a few weeks later uncredited.
  8. I first wrote on this very website back in 1998.

I tag back Al, Emma, Wonderduck, Iamnotthebeatles, Ben, & Sarah.

    Well, 5 out of 8 of those I didn’t know – although to be fair, you probably had told me ๐Ÿ˜‰ You haven’t even tagged me *sobs wildly* ;()

    One thing I do know – you are going to be Jodie Marsh’s new husband ;-)))))))

    Heh, I didn’t tag you as despite many efforts, you don’t seem to want to blog ๐Ÿ˜›

    And thank so much for offering me up for bigamy with her, I am so grateful. I could even think of five or six actresses off Emmerdale I’d rather commit bigamy with.

    The actresses off Emmerdale that you so heartily lust over are probably more riddled with STD’s than La Marsh – especially dozy Roxanne Pallett. Wizard’s sleeve springs to mind……

    She isn’t on the list, thank you very much. Well not that I’d admit to you, anyway.

    Your exact words last night were: ‘what a fantastic set of knockers’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Man should not marry for knockers alone though.

    I think we’ll leave it there ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Why don’t you learn to spell competitive? Didn’t your mother teach you anything? and another thing – it was inside my own half from where I scored – not the halfway line! I volleyed back the goalkeeper’s kick- out back over his head.
    I didnt know your Mum sent that sketch to TW3 !!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    You must tell me about the ghost labrador sometime………..

    I am corrected on both counts then ๐Ÿ˜‰ And the ghost labrador is a long and dull story.
