Meme Tagged

OK, so I’ve been tagged in a post by dotjay for this meme1. The idea is that you write five thing about yourself that people probably didn’t know, and then tag five other people to do the same.

So here goes:

  • When I was twelve, I wanted to grow up to be a concert pianist.
  • I still sleep with cuddly toys, even though I’m 26 and cohabiting. At the moment I have a cuddly gibbon in my bed, he’s got long gangly arms and legs that get wrapped around everywhere but he’s fab. I also have the cuddly tux from thinkgeek that my boyfriend bought for me.
  • My first job out of university was writing football games for gameboy and something called an N-gage which seems to have sunk without trace.
  • I would like to work for myself but I secretly know that I will never do it. I tell everyone I don’t have the confidence but really its because I can’t go for more than an hour without talking.
  • I touch-type at a rate of 70wpm.

I’m not tagging anyone because it feels like a chain letter and in the same way that I read the amusing story on the letter and then delete it, I’m going to join in the game and then stop. I am not superstitious and have never been afraid to break the chain.

If anyone would like to tag themselves and join in then go for it – and add a link in the comments below!

1 I was going to write about what a meme is but actually its best if you read the wikipedia link

  1. I wish we had a piano so that I could play again. I've never been particularly good, but at school I don't think there was a week went by when I didn't go to the music rooms and play a piano.

    My apologies for the tag - although, I did make it optional. I have the same sort of opinion of memes as you, but they do bring some stagnant bloggers (like me) back to life.

  2. Don't apologise for the tag - I learned new stuff about you which was cool :) And it does kick-start us, my problem is that I dream up long and interesting blog posts that I never seem to make time to finish. Something short and sweet is great!

  3. I have the same problem with long posts that I never finish. I must have a hundred or more from the last two years either in draft or note form. Something I read somewhere will sometimes spur me to pick up an old post and finish it, but not often enough really!

  4. It doesn't seem like that long since the last time this happened, but apparently its been two years and the "tell us something new about yourself" meme has come around again. I was trying to ignore it but now I've been tagged by Matthew, Davey and Kathy
