Tag your it - Random Facts

I have just been 'tagged' by the lovely Sue G (Thank you first proper tag!!). So, now I have to try and think of six random things about me then tag another six people to do the same!! It is not as easy as it sounds......

First I need to include the instructions so the people I 'tag' will know what they need to do -

1. Link to the person that tagged you - i.e. me
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write six random things about you in your blog post
4. Tag six people in your post
5. Let each person know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog
6. Let the tagger know your entry is up.

I have just spent ages trying to come up with six things that are interesting but alas that proved too much for me so I'm afraid that your just getting six things :-)

1. I love cooking but am ridiculously intimidated by some recipes. I am quite happy to cook a curry completely from scratch but the thought of making lasagne terrifies the living daylights out of me!! It's the bechamel sauce that does it - I'm convinced that I will end up with gallons of lumpy inedible gloop!!

2. Since I'm already discussing cheesy sauce I might as well tell you that I have a mild allergic reaction to some cheeses. I can't do really strong cheese or hard cheese.....they make me all shivery and cause me to pull my 'Cheese Face' which involves much gurning, shivering and hand flapping (Not my best look but very amusing to all observing!!)

3. I can't frown!! No, really, I can' eyebrows point blank refuse to go into the frowny position. This is not a good thing cause when I'm mad Chris just thinks I look cute and ends up laughing at me which then makes me laugh......There I am trying to be all mad with him and I end up giggling!! (I'm not very good at being angry!!)

4. The first time I was ever drunk was when I was three. My Mum and Dad held a dinner party and, once everyone had gone through to the dining room, I went round and drank what was left in their glasses. I then went into the dining room with a big silly grin on my face, announced that I had been drinking their juice and then proceeded to sing Beatles songs for an hour before passing out!!

5. When I was little my Dad hung a stuffed toy parrot above my bed so that when I lay down it was right above my head. He then told me that it would shit on me if I got up in the middle of the night........ (Ha, that'll teach you for telling everyone the welly story Dad.....revenge is mine!!)

6. I sometimes have, what my husband refers to as, 'donut moments' (I will explain that in a minute). These are moments when I really should engage brain before opening mouth. I shall give you an example.....I had been out shopping and had seen something that I wanted to buy, can't for the life of me remember what the hell it was but anyway....., I was telling Chris about it and I said 'It was a really good price too - they had it on special offer. You could buy one and get one free or get two for the price of one!!' My lovely husband looked at me and then pissed himself laughing.......he refers to me as 'donut' cause he reckons I have a hole in the middle where my brain should be!! (I choose to look on it as a term of endearment!!)

So there you have it. Six random facts about me........

I now tag JJ at Teastains, Mel at Thai Village Life, Debs in France, Jen at Spiral Skies, Hullaballoo, and DJ.


DJ Kirkby said...

Hmmm, thanks for the tag but I have already done this one 3 times over the past year. I will try to combine the 3 and do a lazy Sunday post or something maybe. Loved reading your facts, esp the drinking one and the parrot one.

Carol and Chris said...

Sorry DJ - I didn't realise you have already done this!!

Glad you enjoyed my facts....I really struggled to come up with six!!

Caroline said...

I think we could go to Social Services with this post :) I can't cook anything but pasta. Lasagne is loving referred to as my 'pulling dish.'


Carol and Chris said... what we need to do is get together - you can teach me how to make lasagne and I'll teach you how to make a curry!!

SueG said...

These are great. Your dad's threat is hysterical -- talk about a donut moment. (I may have to lovingly appropriate that saying from you). But I won't mention the cheesy face picture. Really, I won't.....

Lane said...

So funny:-)

I'd like to see to your gurning face combined with your cross face!

Now - a drunk 3 year old and threats of parrot poop? I think Caroline may be right!:-)

(and I agree about Lasagne. I'd rather make a curry any day!)

Carol and Chris said...

Sue - The funny thing about it is that he has absolutely no memory of telling me that!! Ha, your welcome to pinch the donut moment although when Chris read this post he said that it's not so much a donut moment as a way of life!! (Cheeky bugger!!)

Lane - No no no....gurning face and frowny face would not be a good combination.....I would probably spontaneously combust with the effort!!

(I'm so glad it's not just me with the lasagne thing!!)

The Lehners in France said...

Carol and Chris, thanks for the tag, it was harder than I thought, mines posted. Debs x

It was Dubonnet - I bet you haven't tried it since! You didn't actually pass out, (after making sure you were alright) we just put you to bed - really to avoid subjecting our friends to any more Beatles songs - you can have too much of a good thing!

You were very entertaining - some things don't change!

Love Mum xx

The Lehners in France said...

Now that's really spooky. I got drunk on Dubonnet when I was three. We were playing hide and seek and I hid in the hall cupboard and finished off the bottle. Debs x

peter_may said...

Actually, you already got your own back. That rubber parrot you and Chris left the last time you were here has shit all over my computer. A veritable Trojan parrot!

Debs said...

I love the expression donut moments. I'm still laughing.

Carol and Chris said...

The Lehners - Your welcome!! It's not easy coming up with six things is it!!

Mum - I have had Dubonnet since!! (Didn't know it was Dubonnet that I had drunk!!). We got it at the end of a meal in a Nepalese was in a shot glass and had cream on top - they called it a Nepalese soldier!!

The Lehners - Hahahaha. OMG that did make me laugh!!

Dad - Revenge is mine mwaaaahahahah.......

Debs - I love it too.....when it's not being applied to me!!

Awwww, the parrot one is the best, must try that with the kids.

Thanks for the tag, I too have done it a couple of times over the past year. I will tweak it a bit, if you don't mind and post something on my blog.

I've done it, honeybears. H

Carol and Chris said...

Hullaballoo - I was pretty sure that the parrot wouldn't crap on me in the middle of the night but not sure enough to test the theory!!!

Didn't know that you had already done this but am now going to pop over to your blog to see your answers :-)
