8 random facts about me

Phil tagged me some time ago to disclose 8 random facts about me so doing it now... sorry for taking so long to respond.

Here are the rules:

  • Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
  • Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
  • Players should tag 8 other people and notify them that they have been tagged.

1. I keep my money in not only ascending order but also by serial number [totally insane... I know]
2. I had nine cats before I moved here
3. I have done Bungee jumping, sky diving,white water rafting, para gliding... and now want to take a course through which I'll be able to sky dive solo
4. I don't know how to drive and till three years ago I had never operated a washing machine
5. My parents didn't allow me to model but when I got married I started modeling and hosting shows on television even did a couple of plays... don't do any now as too busy studying...
6. I did my first masters in mass communications and now doing an MBA ... I love studying and am a geek
7. I have partied for three days straight and believe we should do EVERYTHING at least once in life
8. When I first met my husband almost 10 years ago, I couldn't stand him.. he thought I was a snob and I thought he was a flirt [after all I was a convent school girl - very proper and sheltered]

The 8 bloggers I tagged [I guess the ones who have already been tagged by someone else and responded don't have to respond and neither is it incumbent upon others tagged by me... feel free to ignore ;)]

  1. It's a Schmitty Life
  2. Zakman
  3. HollyGL
  4. Dream Catcher/Augmented Reality
  5. Lozster
  6. Revellian
  7. Bridge's Garden
  8. Looney mom

That was some pretty interesting facts. Wow! Glad to see you back. :o)

Mariuca said...

Amber! Thanks for Number 4 :) I know how to drive (or so I claim and would like to believe!) and I have a licence but am too afraid to drive on my own so I don't!!!! I think that's my number 1 weakness - afraid to drive :( so your number 4 made me feel a little better! :)

Random Magus said...

Titanie Starlight: Hi... its nice to be back

Mariuca: I feel overjoyed when I meet others who can't drive

paisley said...

you are a girl full of contradictions and little complications... you make for ever so interesting reading tho!!!!!!

Loz said...

Hi amber, I have accepted the tag :)

Random Magus said...

Look forward to reading it Loz

Thanks Paisley - I would hate to be totally understood, labelled and put in a slot....

Dream Catcher said...

Laurie Anne said...

RM, I saw your comments on my blog and I wanted to tell you thank you so, so, so much for the praise and just stopping by and possibly starting a dialogue.

Greg said...

1. You make crazy people proud.

2. How did they escape?

3. What is the sound of one shoot not opening?

4. Not too many people know how to drive in the U.S., but that doesn't seem to stop them.

5. Small world. When I was young my parents wouldn't allow me to exhibit sociopathic tendencies.

6. Mass communications? Like inciting riots and organizing angry mobs?

7. Let me know when you get to bullfighting. I'd like to watch.

8. Just wait 10 more years.

HollyGL said...

I am so impressed with the sky diving, Random. I have always been terrified of heights, and am afraid I would black out about half way down!

zakman said...

1. So people can actually count beyond four digits?

2. Where did you hide the tenth?

3. That's so wonderful. Maybe one day I'll be able to do all that.

4. Same here. My hands and legs do not co-ordinate with each other; I can't change gears, neither can I swim.

5. The whole world didn't allow me to model.

6. wow... I guess I'm only a geekette.

7. True. I once played chess non-stop for more than 48 hours. But I might do it again.

8. Guess Greg said it all! j/k :)

Jeff said...

I love the money one. How do yo have time for that? lol

Random Magus said...

Dream catcher: sorryy... i think

Laurie Anne: It was great discovering your blog.. will visit again and again

Greg: Where do I begin... let's see...When I was young a doctor suggested to my mom that perhaps she should take me to a shrink.. go figure... I would love to organise an angry mob.
If the shoot didn't open I wouldn't be alive to tell you...

Random Magus said...

HollyGL: It was one of te most fun things I've done... definitey makes my top 5

Zakman: 48 hours? Chess? wow...I'm officially impressed

Jeff: I am a lazy bum with severe psychotic tendencies ;)

The Real Mother Hen said...

What a great list :) especially #1... that's so cool, love it :)

Bobby Revell said...

Thanks for selecting me to write 8 facts. My url listed in your post is incorrect, it is
This will be my first 8 facts meme:)

Random Magus said...

Sorry Bobby.. I have now changed the link...

Michelle said...

Hi Random

Great list of interesting facts, although the money thing is weird! *grin*

I knew a guy who used to wash his money and iron it before he'd put it in his wallet. I'd forgotten that until I read your list. He was a really wild rebel type too. Not at all the kind of guy you would imagine ironing anything!

meleah rebeccah said...

Love the 8 facts! (the driving one most interested me)

and damn! you don't have to do laundry? (never operating a washing machine?) you are one lucky woman!

Random Magus said...

Michelle: Okay that one totally beats mine ;)

Meleah: Never had to do my own laundry before I moved here ;(
Now I'm a professional at it :)
