random facts meme

I've been tagged by Nicole to do this meme: to write six random facts about myself. Rules, which I haven't kept faithfully, at the bottom.

1. I used to play the 'fiddle' in a bush-band called "Rachael and the Sheep-dags"

2. I once ate a whole raw sausage. I was about thirteen and it was at youth group. No, it wasn't even a dare. It was a BBQ night and things were taking so long to get organised and I was so hungry that I ate it. It was BYO meat, so all I had with me to eat was the sausage. I can't believe it now, but when you are thirteen and ravenously hungry...

3. I don't wear an engagement ring. I don't even have one. In fact, Glen never even 'proposed'.

4. I am the only person I know ever to have failed a music exam; fourth grade piano.

5. My favourite cartoon show as a child was "G-force" which we used to play during recess at school and I was scared of "the Thunderbirds".

6. Something that really irks me is the way that the word 'random' has come to be used. It seems to be used when we mean unconnected or undirected or something like that. These facts that I have chosen are not random. In fact, they are the opposite. I have carefully selected things that I think you might find interesting, that might make you laugh, that you probably don't already know. The are definitely not random; they may be undirected and unconnected but they are not random.

I tag Bron, T, Hannah and Jess.

1. Link to the person who ‘tagged’ you!
2. Post the rules on your blog!
3. List 6 random facts about yourself!
4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post!
5. Let each person know they have been tagged by commenting on their blog!
6. Let the tagger know the entry is posted on your blog!

Hi Rachael
I've done the random fact meme and it's on my blog! Though I need your email to let you see it as its private!

Thanks for doing this!

And I agree with you about the word 'random' and its use in this meme.
