If there is someone who makes your world a better place, and who you would not have met without the Internet, then - if you wish - post this sentence in your Journal.

Baaaaa!

MeMe tag:
1. Thank the person who tagged you.
2. List 5 random/strange/weird things about yourself
3. Tag 5 other people.

1. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] caomhinmaca (I think :-))

2. (i) When I'm thinking hard and trying to acquire a new physical skill, I stop breathing*.
(ii) I count things. Strange things. Like, filling the kettle: "Vun second of water flow! Two! Three!"
(iii) I like to know the precise times of solistice, equinox and cross-quarter moments.
(iv) I'm an ex-astro-fizzy-pissed.
(v) I'm a geek of vegan cooking, but I'm not vegan.

3. [livejournal.com profile] purplecthulhu, [livejournal.com profile] goncalves, [livejournal.com profile] surliminal, [livejournal.com profile] brisingamen, [livejournal.com profile] chilperic

* Confirmed by: piano teacher (when I was aged 14), driving instructor (age 21), horse riding instructor (age 30-something), aikido Sensei (last year!). My riding instructor made me sing Bohemian Rhapsody whilst learning to canter...

Also, tired but happy, having done the round trip cycle into the Big Smoke for groceries today :-)

(Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] rdmaughan via [livejournal.com profile] cuboid_ursinoid). I shall be making charity donations instead of sending Xmas cards this year. My only regret is that's one fewer communication from me to you! So ... comment here, tell me what you celebrate at this time of year, and which charities you'd like me to support in your honour.

I'm afraid they got me bang to rights...

Snippity-snip, as all good memes should go... )

I feel in the mood to answer questions, even though this isn't the way the meme works (right)?

Pop psychology, but what a result! )

Excellent aikido tonight!

"If you wish, ask me something you think you should know about me: Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about.

If I wish, I'll answer :-)"

Originally from [livejournal.com profile] yonmei, but altered...

"Why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself? Any true thing which you'd like me to associate with you. I'd love it if every single person who reads my journal would do this. Yes, even you people whom I think I know really well :-)"

Then post in own journal if you want...

So, what can you add to this list of my idiosyncracies?
  • I will count anything - in different languages, if the mood strikes me.
  • I keep starting to learn new languages - French, German, Russian, Japanese, Latin, Welsh, and now Hindi-Urdu.*
  • If I'm not 10 mins early, I consider myself to be late.
  • I prefer to eat Organic, Fair-trade vegan food.
  • I greatly enjoy tracking down the most 'moral' products, even if I then have to compromise.
  • I am car-free.
  • I'm a long-sleeping lark - up at 06:00, crashed out at 21:00.
  • ...?
* I run out of steam when my brain is full and I don't have anyone with whom to practice!
