The ‘eight things about me’ meme
It’s been done: last time it was ‘six weird things about me’. But Tripp tagged me for this one.
Here are the rules...

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
1. I learnt to drive as a teen-ager but didn’t for eight years — started again 10 years ago. (Even though I drive now I take the train to work — it’s great having that time to read books or pray the office.)

2. I’ve never read nor seen the films of Lord of the Rings nor Harry Potter. Things you’d think I’d really enjoy but just never got round to.

3. Random secular book that formed me: 1984 (which I read that year) by George Orwell.

4. I rent rooms in an Edwardian house. The whole town sprang up as a development in 1910; I’m in one of the original houses. I’ve lived here for seven years.

5. I haven’t got cable or a satellite dish.

6. I never shop at malls. It’s not a conscious choice; I just don’t do it. Just as well. (Now there’s less overhead and less waste, thanks to the medium I’m using right now. I like it!)

7. I’m a ‘Simpsons’ fan.

8. A random favourite food: lamb saag wala.

Eight more people: Joshua, David, Deacon Jim, Michael, Jorge and Frs Tucker, Methodius and Anderson.

All are regular readers so no need to put off-topic comments on their blogs. (Besides, Fr Tucker has no comment boxes.)

Also from Tripp:

One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small
I keep getting these (fake/spam/fictional/false) messages about my viagra or valium order today. Viagra and valium. Are these drugs working at cross purposes? I was just wondering.
