The Eight Random Things about me meme

DonaldHTaylor sent me this meme to do so what the hey I thought and here I go:

The rules:

  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.

Now this is effectively a chain letter via blogs but it will allow me to highlight some of my favourite bloggers so if I tag you… I read your blog often and if you choose to participate that’s fine, if not, I’ll still read your blog… 🙂

1. I don’t like chain emails that threaten bad luck

2. I do like red manilla folders.

3. I have a packet of crumpets on my desk at work.

4. My new wallet cost $90, but I love it and it holds my mobile phone but not all the crap still in my old wallet.

5. I am not very good at long term projects, except as it turns out, this blog.

6. I’m really annoyed that Sarah didn’t get through to the final 12 of Idol.

7. I have three moles which are currently on 6-month reviews!

8. I buy make-up from supermarkets.

And I love reading Reading Circles, Adelaide Writer, Are Don and Carol Coming?, Individual Chic, James O’Brien, H&B, Hot Water and I Drew This… and many more – see my reading list.

(Oh and random fact number 9. I’m not very good at following rules so I won’t be leaving comments at everyone’s blog that I nominated saying please do this meme… though I probably will leave a comment just because you write great articles and I like you!)
