Seven Weird Wonders?!?

Uh-oh! Mum’s at it again with yet another meme! This time she wants to know seven weird facts about me, I’m not so sure about this… I don’t class any facts about me to be “weird”…

Here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog. (iRamble) – Check
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog – some random, some weird – Well I’ll see what I can manage!
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog – 7? You’re having a giraffe aren’t you?
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog – oh heck that’ll confuse some of of this lot!!!

The Cutting Edge release

Here we go…..

  1. I like the cold side of a pillow
    Come on now, that’s not odd, that should be downright normal for absolutely everyone!!!
  2. Automation
    I love it, I’m a real geek for it. I’d automate everything if I could. I’ve practically got Emma convinced on the remote control light switches, and the entire house sound system now! Woohoo!
  3. Blogging
    Unlike almost everyone else I don’t know why I write this blog… Other blogs have a specific purpose like making money, or self expression (or therapy in some cases). I’m not sure why I started Skillett.com I just did! It barely makes anything off the adverts, and is full of content.
  4. Rain makes me nervous
    I have good reason…. Very good reason! I got married in the Great Floods of 2007 in Gloucester.We were getting married on the 21st July 2007, and on the 20th July 2007 the heavens opened, surrounding the village we were due to get married in!

    Needless to say some people almost didn’t make it to the wedding (myself included), my flat tyre on the morning of the wedding just continued the saga. However all but 4 people made it I think, and guess what – the most amazing day ever – made all the more special by the stories of how people had got there:
    The Girl Next Door move
    – Army Trucks
    – Nights in Crisis Centres
    – 21 Hours in a car from Newcastle.
    (Believe me – some of the photo’s are hilarious!!!)

    I somehow forgot about my nerves on the night before watching the Sea king helicopter land people in the hotel car park – as I rewrote my wedding speech from start to finish!

    I’m allowed to get nervous alright – it’s not “just a bit of a rain!

  5. Jim Carey
    I’m saying nothing more, just typing his name has made me cringe – I can’t stand him.
  6. Trash TV
    Luckily I’m not alone on this one, the X-Factor makes me laugh, I think Strictly is brilliant and people wonder about my mental state, however Emma likes them as much as I do!
  7. Weird Fact #7
    The reason it’s taken me weeks to post this is because I couldn’t think of #7, the rest of this was written before I went on holiday! As such I’m classing Weird Fact #7 writers block as my weird fact #7!

Oh I can’t think of anyone who might not have done it already…. I haven’t read enough blogs recently (see my last post!)

Update: I’ve actually had a request to be tagged! Here you go Tim.
