So, seven things you may not know about me - these about a man whose sister-in-law asked his partner what he thought of having our life spread around the internet - what's left to tell, I wonder. I texted (more along the lines of "that's enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think of me?) my partner asking him for things that neither ya'll nor I know about me and he came back with a list that brought me to the following but there's nothing really surprising there - I'd worked it all out myself.
1 I am originally from a town in Northwest England, also the home town of Sir Ian McKellen. Although it's a small place, we have never met.
2 I could eat fettuccine alfredo with a dusting of nutmeg for each meal, every day - which probably would require more of my least favorite activities, dieting and taking anti- cholesterol medication.
3 I love dogs but don't own one on the principle that picking up a dog's waste is no fit activity for a human being.
4 I learned to drive in my late forties after my driver resigned.
5 I think life is too short for beige.
6 My favorite city is the one I haven't visited yet.
7 I cannot abide the phrase fine china and crystal.
71/2 I don't like dead bird in any form on a plate.
Seven things I like
1 Pork pies and champagne.
2 Detective fiction - the older the better.
3 Cooking, but not the quotidian variety.
4 The history of interior design and architecture, unless its a text book.
5 Carnations, pinks, in fact all flowers, that have scent.
6 The way my partner dresses.
7 The Holidays in New York.
Seven bloggers I would nominate
A couple of the bloggers I had nominated had no way of being contacted and of the ones I did contact ahead of time, so far one has said he will not take part and a second has said she has been got already by someone else. It is always fun to talk about oneself and its pointless having cold feet after the event but I do wonder if this Kreative Blogger Award is just a chain letter whose chain needs breaking.
Be that as it may, what's done is done and now you know 15 more things than perhaps you wanted to know or even care about.
