Charles Lambert - did this to me:

"Each player starts with eight random facts/habits or embarrassing things about themselves. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog."

Hmm, as he says in his blog about being tagged, fiction writing is quite often a way of doing this anyway, but here goes:

1 - when I was a baby I was baptised in hospital after a car crash - the doctors didn't think I'd survive

2 - I was once a body-double for a much more famous model who was in a clinic being 'tired' but the photographer sent me home without pay because I was underendowed for the job

3 - I can sit in the lotus position for hours

4 - I was once (very briefly) engaged to a Radio Luxembourg D.J.

5 - I was once engaged (for a bit longer) to a Hell's Angel

6 - Actually I've been engaged eleven times, eight times resulting in a nice shiny engagement ring (the other three ... either I dumped them before they could buy a ring or I threw the ring at them, heigh ho)

7 - I failed all my A-Levels and left school to become a receptionist at a dental practice

8 - I once worked as an agony aunt for nudists.

And I'm tagging: Steve Augarde, Myfanwy Collins, Bunny Goodjohn, Steve Kane (who never plays the game, damn him!), Sophie Mayer, Patti Moed, Donna Storey and Ed Touchette ... have at you, bloggers!
