So I'm supposed to link to the person who 'tagged' me. Write 6 random things about myself here. Then 'tag' six other victims.
I'm going to write the 6 random things below, because I'm a raving egotist and it's always fun for me to talk about myself. But I'm going to shy clear of tagging another six people, as I'm vaguely worried that I'll tag someone who'll consider me a damn nuisance and never speak to me again because of it.
Luckily for Bo, who tagged me, I could never consider him a nuisance, being one of my oldest friends now (in the nicest sense), and besides which I owe him a dinner. Several dinners, if truth be told.
So he gets away with it ...
Meanwhile, 6 random facts about myself, starting with the most obvious:
I was once ranked 24th in the world for women's snooker
I can't make pastry. Well, I can, but few would want to eat the results.
I've flown at Mach 2 (twice the speed of sound) on Concorde - London to New York - and seen the curvature of the earth. How many people will ever be able to say that?
My all-time favourite book is probably A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin. (Harry Potter's an interesting character, but he can't compete with Ged.)
I used to run a secondhand bookshop called 'The Little Camel Bookshop'.
Family aside, given the choice between being in company and being alone, I nearly always prefer solitude.
