8 Random Facts

Clive Shepherd has invited me to take on this meme of eight random facts.

  1. Post these rules before you give your facts.
  2. List 8 random facts about yourself.
  3. At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them.
  4. Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Here they are:

  1. I can’t ride a bike.
  2. I once had a Supercar pilot’s licence signed by Mike Mercury, convincing me that the puppet show Supercar was based on real people.
  3. I was briefly detained in an Egyptian army camp in the desert.
  4. I have webbed feet but am a crap swimmer.
  5. I have mingled with rock superstardom: I tripped over a member of the Kinks (not Ray) who was drunk and comatose after a gig at Edinburgh University.
  6. I come from Ayr ‘Wham ne’er a toun surpasses, for honest men and bonnie lassies’ (Burns)
  7. I was adopted at birth and now have good relationships with both my birth parents.
  8. I’ve never been Chancellor of the Exchequer. It was just a collective delusion.
