Tagged by Kaz and Pacha

Kaz and Pacha both tagged me for this meme. I already did it a few weeks ago on the Narcissistic Meme post, but on to round two...

Six random things about me:
  1. I was accident prone as a child; if anyone had to fall and bust something, it would be me. I have the scars to prove it.
  2. As a teen I had a huge crush on Paul Michael Glaser (Starsky of Starsky and Hutch fame). My friends and I swooned over his tight jeans and salacious walk.
  3. When the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior visited our capital some years ago, one of my friends thought that when it sailed away I'd be on it.
  4. I used to grow hybrid tea roses. The lady at the garden shop where I bought them never so much as glanced at my ID whenever I gave her a cheque; she said that rose people's cheques don't bounce.
  5. Late night is my favourite time of day.
  6. I detest oatmeal porridge. Tried it again recently because of all the cholesterol reduction hype. Couldn't get past the first spoonful.
Let's see, who'll be my victims this time? [Did the room just empty?] I'll tag Chennette, B.E. Sanderson, JJ, Lucy Diamond, Matt and Debs. Only if you want to, guys. I know many of you have already done this one.

The Rules:

* Link to the person who tagged you
* Post the rules on your blog
* Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
* Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
* Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website

Are you still accident prone? Ohhhhh and Starsky's tight jeans and strut *sigh*

Thanks for the doing the meme. I love reading peoples responses!

Accident prone - yup, I used to fall off my sneakers.

Crushes - Randolph Mantooth who played Johnny Gage on Emergency. Smokin' hot!

Greenpeace - One of the founders of Greenpeace lived here in Toronto - Bob Hunter. He passed away last year.

Roses - what an intuitive shop lady!

I love nighttime too, especially in the summer. So quiet and magical.

Oatmeal - You can try Cheerios. They have all the whole grain oat cholesterol fighting goodness.

Pacha, I tell myself I outgrew it, but just last week I walked right into a window...

Starsky... **drool**

Doing the meme was fun. Thanks for tagging me!

Chumplet, tripping over my own feet was the norm for me... Randy Mantooth! Yes! How could I have forgotten him? As for Greenpeace, I love them for what they do. The rose lady truly believed in the integrity of rose gardeners... I hope she never got disillusioned...

Magical is exactly the word for the night - especially in this valley, and especially when we have a power outage (the regular outages probably feature prominently in your memories of Trinidad); that's when you get a really great view of the stars.

Right now the days are pleasant because the heat is not oppressive during the northern winter, but once the April heat kicks in - I want no part of the day! Thanks for the Cheerios rec. I've never seen them on the shelves here, but then I wasn't looking... If I find them I'll give them a try.

Hi there, thanks for the meme - I did do it the other day!

But popped by to say there's an award over on mine for you.

hey Liane, I haven't ignored you, I just haven't had too much spare time to blog. Will try to rectify this weekend.
