Eight Random Facts

I was tagged by Chief Biscuit at As It Happens to reveal 8 facts about myself.

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each participant posts eight random facts about themselves.
3. Tagees should write a blogpost of eight random facts about themselves.
4. At the end of the post, eight more bloggers are tagged (named and shamed).
5. Go to their blog, leave a comment telling them they're tagged (cut and run).

After reading a few other bloggers 8 facts for ideas, and a bit of think here are my 8 Facts.

  1. My middle name is Maria, which is a good Catholic name. I was brought up a Catholic and went to convent schools most my school life. I'm now an Athiest.

  2. I am computer savvy and have been into computers since 1994. I hate having to rely on someone else to fix any computer problems so have learned to do it myself.

  3. I hate hairdressers so cut my own hair.

  4. I used to paint watercolours as I was quite good at art when I was at school and took it up again in the 1980s. Below is one I painted when we were in Queensland, stranded on a deserted island for a day in 1993. Therein lies a yarn.

  5. I don't like children all that much and have never wanted one. Babies leave me cold, but puppies and kittens melt my heart.

  6. I can tell fortunes with tarot cards and draw up horoscopes.

  7. I like solving and creating cryptic crosswords.

  8. I once wrote a song for a Save the Lemmings campaign. Go here for the full story and my song.

So there. It also seems I'm a show off - typical Leo.

OK now I'm supposed to tag some more people. It seems just about everyone has been tagged but I'll tag Clare at Keeper of the Snails. in case she hasn't been tagged yet

Thanks Anne, no I hadn't been tagged, but have done the deed now...

Very interesting list, I thought - quite an insight - and I love that watercolour. I've done a bit of that myself and I really like the way you've used the wateriness of the paint to such good effect. It works really well.

Your painitng is so good! it looks like it's been done in the rain - and yet ... it has this quality of heat as well.
Thanks for taking up the tag - I don't particularly like tagging people as it smacks of chain letter-ing to me (which I hate.)
I found the facts you posted interesting ... and of course I wanted to know MORE about each one!
