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.

So now I’m passing it on to:

  1. I suppose a variation on this could be “ate random facts” – things you have eaten and possibly regreted – allow me to expand:
    A deep fried Mars Bar with brown sauce.
    Anything from Pizza Hut.
    A Pot Noodle on a roll.
    Snails in garlic and oil.
    Flat Doctor Pepper.
    Anything in a shot glass in a dark night-club.
    Anything possibly ex-human in origin.
    Fluff.
    A full English breakfast (must include beans, black pudding and fried bread) following a night spent drinking at a drinking competition.
