12 things

I've been tagged by Trouble Doubled! This is what I have to do (pay attention please, it's rather complicated):

1) You must post the rules
2) Post 12 fun facts about yourself in the blog post
3) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you in their post and then create 12 new questions for the fellow bloggers you plan to tag
4) Tag 12 people and link to them on your blog
5) Let them know you tagged them

So here we go:

1) Done

2) 12 fun facts about myself:

1) When I set the volume level on an electronic device, it must be set to an even number.
2) My hair needs a cut.
3) I'd rather walk for a mile than parallel park the car.
4) My mum cleans my kitchen more often than I do.
5) I like making lists.
6) I could easily live without a television but I'd struggle without a computer.
7) I don't iron.
8) I won't kill a spider but I'm happy for someone else (i.e. husband) to kill one for me.
9) I'm always early for things.
10) My thumb bends backwards so I can't do a 'thumbs up' properly.
11) I need glasses but I don't like to wear them around the house or for anything close up like reading or using the computer. As a result, when I do put them on I suddenly notice how dusty everything is...
12) I usually forget to wear my wedding ring.

3) My answers to the questions:

1) Do you like being tagged in memes? - Yes I do, it give me something to think about. I'm not very good about doing the tagging myself though. 
2) Ant or Dec? - Ant.
3) Winx Club is an abhorrence to post-feminist thought and should be banned from our TV screens. Discuss. - I have no idea what this is, I think my family must be the wrong demographic! 
4) What is the greatest TV theme tune in the history of TV? - Red Dwarf ("It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere...")
5) If you had to pimp your kids out for cash, would they be child models, a cute all-singing all-dancing supergroup, or up chimneys? - Child models, although not sure they've got the right temperament.They are probably small enough to go up chimneys.
6) Will there ever be a boy born that can swim faster than a shark? - Definitely something worth thinking about.
7) If you could only ever eat one chocolate bar for the rest of your life, which would it be? - Twix. A perfect combination of biscuit, caramel and chocolate.
8) What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind? - The life and times of Peppa Pig.
9) Can you play a musical instrument? - Yes, I can coax a tune from the violin, the piano, the recorder and many children's toys
10) If you were a character in a novel, who would you be? - Hermione Granger.
11) Who let the dogs out? Who, who, who, who? - I have no idea but now have that song going round and round my head!
12) What is your favourite song? - Got to be something by Pulp, probably Common People.

Here are 12 questions to be answered:

1) What is the opening line to your favourite novel?
2) Which film makes you cry?
3) Twitter or Facebook?
4) Do you hoover under the sofa?
5) If you were to come back as an animal, what would it be?
6) If you had to move to another country, where would you go?
7) Marmite - love it or hate it?
8) Disney or Dreamworks?
9) What is your favourite holiday destination?
10) What is your earliest memory?
11) Would you wear your pajamas to the supermarket?
12) What would you say to your 16 year old self?

4) I hereby tag (sorry if you've already been tagged, and please only take part if you want to!):


  1. Brilliant! Thanks for doing them. I LOVE Red Dwarf, and don't iron, and my mother also cleans my kitchen, and a whole host of other stuff. I wouldn't worry about Winx Club, though 7 year old girls love it. It is crap. Not with you on Ant though, sorry. His forehead is way too big. :)

  2. I enjoyed taking part, thank you!
