Tagged - Random Cake

I have been tagged by Allie to confess to you all seven strange facts about myself...

The rules are as follows:
1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
5. Leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged.

Gosh, this is hard! I think I'm too sensible to do really weird things.

1. As I have mentioned before, I like gravy with everything and whenever someone mentions licking chocolate or cream off their lover's body, I always imagine doing it with gravy. Ruf says it will be too messy but I'm not completely deterred and remain hopeful...

2. I'm very persistent. I don't like to fail or be beaten by something. I will stay up til all hours to finish a book or jigsaw puzzle - even if I'm not enjoying it.

3. I get travel sick and vertigo so I don't willingly do heights or fairground rides.

4. Horror movies give me nightmares. You may not have noticed, but I do possess a very vivid imagination. I can scare myself far more effectively than any film director.

5. I once won a talent competition as a ventriloquist - no I wasn't the dummy!

6. I have that whole index finger longer than the third finger thing going on. This, apparently, means that I was subjected to lots of testosterone in the womb which accounts for some of my more masculine tendencies... like enjoying watching football and rugby. I'm afraid it does not extend to cricket, which I find dull in the extreme - unless it's one of those really exciting run-chasing competitions with the Ashes or some other major trophy at stake. In that case, I understand the concept and can watch enthusiastically. However, normal five-day matches leave me completely bemused by teams being able to win because it rained!

7. I try really hard to be nice to everybody and smile at everyone, which often gets me into trouble because I also seem to be a magnet for weirdos. Ruf tells me I should just tell them to go forth and multiply but I'm too polite and don't want to hurt their feelings. It's all part of my desire for approval and validation and I recognise that, but I'm not sure if it's something I want necessarily to change. Yes, people take advantage and think that they can treat me badly and get away with it but I think I'd rather that than become hard and suspicious.

I shall tag:

I love memes. They are a little window into a blogger's life other than what they generally want to share.

I wonder what you dream about after watching a Dracula movie.

Your jazzed-up template looks good enough to eat!

Not sure how to respond to your tag as I'm not blogging at the mo. Maybe I'll stick some random facts in "Tanya's" comment box. Ooh, maybe I should put seven facts about her!

My first meme. I've avoided this for so long. I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.
I'm no longer a virgin.

BTW I'm not the one traveling to Colorado. That's another contributer to The Smartpatrol. I'm just one of 9 contributers. With that said, me and thePrisoner are the ones who post the most. Mr. Kamikaze only posts sometimes. Like when he goes on trips (like Colorado). The rest are just people who no longer post, but we don't have the heart to drop them from our list.
