Dean has tagged me so here goes. Cut'n paste and insert my facts. I like Dean's alteration to Rule 3 so the same applies here. (I won't leave a comment informing of the tag - if you're the one of the unlucky 8, you can read it here or in your choice of aggregator.)First, the Rules:
- Post these rules before you give your facts
- List 8 random facts about yourself
- At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them
- Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged
1. I have never left the Australian continent.
2. I really enjoy Aussie Rules Football but never played competitively until the age of 22 when I was recruited for the Wirrulla Roosters B Grade in my second year of teaching. I played a slow but aggressive half back flank. I wore number 7.
3. "Cars" is one of my favourite movies. I enjoy buying the diecast models cars for my 4 year old as much as he enjoys playing with them.
4. One of my favourite meals is an Italian oil roll filled with prosciutto, Jarlsberg cheese and sundried tomatoes.
5. My first car was an old Chrysler Valiant handed down from my father. I put the designer scratches down the side myself.
6. For a completely hopeless athlete, I am quite proud of the fact that I have become an average handicap golfer (16 at present) and totally self taught.
7. My favourite author is Tim Winton.
8. As a teenager I worked for cash on my dad's farm doing things like putting up fences, herding sheep, building a shed, chopping out thistles and working up the paddocks in the Ford tractor.
Hmmmmm.... who to tag. Let's do some payback to previous meme taggers and add some newer names to the mix - Doug, Greg, Sheryl, Rachel, Kevin, Darren D., John and Sue. Have fun.
Hey Graham, I accept the ‘challenge!’ Will post my 8 facts shortly!
LOL, I enjoy these memes, it helps make the blogosphere a more intimate and friendly place :). After yelling at the television set for quite a few years in Australia I finally played my first game of AFL for a womens university team. I don’t yell so loud now because that silly ball just does not go where it is supposed to when you kick it!
I like Tim Winton’s kids books, Lochie Leonard (?), but I just read “Dirt Music”, he writes compelling adult works as well!
Jane, Tim Winton’s book “The Riders” is my absolute favourite. Amazing that he won his first Miles Franklin award at the age of 19. His writing is absolutely brilliant, painting images with words unlike any other authors that I’ve read.
