tag central

I've been tagged twice in one day! Does that mean I have to fess up double the amount?!! I think not!! Until yesterday I had never even heard of the concept of tagging, and now Diana Fayt and Anna Davern have both tagged me within a few hours of eachother. Yep, tag central. So from what I can gather, when you get tagged you have to write a list of 6 things about yourself that people may not know. So, here goes.......

1. I once went dressed as Brett Whiteley to a costume party. Actually, there was a remarkable resemblance when that blonde afro wig went on)
2. I am addicted to rice cakes - yes, those things that look, feel and taste like polystyrene. I don't know what it is but I eat a packet a day and seriously crave them.
3. When I was a kid I was ambidexterous. Sister Christopher used to smack me whenever I wrote with my left hand. But I was a rebellious child and am now very left-handed. I'm cranky to this day that such a useful skill was whacked out of me.
4. I once won 1st prize in a banana eating competition at the Murwillumbah Banana Festival.
5. I always wanted to be a foreign diplomat. But I decided to take a year off to go travelling before applying to the Department of Foreign Affairs to begin my illustrious career in the corridors of diplomacy! I stayed away much longer than that, became a teacher, and then an artist. No regrets!
6. I don't like cats. (people think I'm so nasty when I admit that. Sorry, but they drive me nuts)

Ok. That's me all tagged up. Whose next? Sorry girls....Rebeccah, Liana and Florence....

Thats terrible about the smacking. Hard to believe people thought that way then. I have seen this tagging in a number of blogs. You seem remarkably normal compared to most;-)
I'm just hoping I never get tagged. All sorts of terrible secrets will be revealed;-)

I'm with the nuns on that one- lefthandedness is so very evil. and your dislike of cats just confirms it for me you devil woman.
i'll get working on my tag things...

I heard that if you stop a child from being left handed it can lead to reading problems in the future. Those nuns have a lot to answer for. BTW, I MET Brett Whitely back in the late 80's at an exhibition! piercing blue eyes. How many bananas did you eat?

well luckily for me I can still read! But yes, they have lots to answer for!! They did teach me how to play the guitar however! And one of these days I might just post the picture of me dressed as Brett Whitely next to a picture of Brett Whitely! I'm not game yet...! Nice claim to fame for you tho! And how many bananas...I'd like to say some impressive number like 237, but it was only 4. I got em in pretty fast though!! And rebecca....you watch yourself young lady....haven't you noticed the way my eyes glow red in a certain light...
