On being random...

I've been tagged by Scott Pack to tell you six random things about me, so here goes:

1. I know all the words to 'Flower of Scotland' and can sing it with gusto when encouraged (or even when not).

2. My first drive after passing my test was to take Alan Titchmarsh (then a relatively low-profile editor of Amateur Gardening) to the station after he had lunch with my mum. We nearly crashed, very badly. In fact it was so awful that when we met again a couple of years later at Chelsea Flower Show he went white as soon as he saw me.

3. The first concert I went to was to see Genesis play in Birmingham. Paul, my boyfriend, had booked us both into a men only hostel for the night so we had to walk round the city because we had no money for a hotel.

4. The house I live in used to be Beau Nash's illegal gaming rooms.

5. I have sent off, today, an application to do a post-grad qualification in Garden History.

6. One of my ambitions is to write and publish a graphic novel.

And I tag Nik, Clare, Sue, Patricia, Deborah and Cathy.

Phew, this tagging is exhausting. Here are the rules, one of which I see is to post the rules...

Link to the person that tagged you - i.e. me.
Post the rules on your blog.
Write six random things about you in a blog post.
Tag six people in your post.
Let each person know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
Let the tagger know your entry is up.

As Flanders and Swann sang: "Beau Brummell, Beau Nash, not forgetting bow legs."

Perhaps you could write a historical graphic novel about Alan Titchmarsh travelling back in time to Beau Nash's illegal gaming rooms which has a CD covermount and is sponsored by the YHA.

I'd buy it.

Then I'll write it... sounds like a winner! No sheds though? Or apple sandwiches?

Alex said...

That's cheese and apple, not just apple. An apple sandwich would be yucky. You MUST have the cheese.

Throw in a shed or two too. It can't hurt.

Clare Dudman said...

Thanks for thinking of me, Sarah, but in the thick of things at the there may be some delay. Like the sound of your garden history post grad course - sounds fascinating!

Deborah Rey said...

I diddit, Sarah!

Why do you say 6 other people and others 5? Oh well, I have 5 other bloggers tagged. They're going to love me for it.



Sarah Salway said...

Brilliant, all of you! x

Sarah Salway said...

No worries, Clare - lovely Paris dress, btw!

Deborah, I think you might have got it a teeny bit wrong, but no worries. It's all about being random!
