Tagged

An unusual post for this blog, but as I have been tagged (http://labaleineaplumes.webou.net/?p=101) here are my probably not very interesting secrets.

1 I hate baked beans. They are something I never buy, but was reminded how much I hate them earlier today. In fact, even thinking about them is making my toes curl, so on to the next secret

2 I hate the cinema. Yes, it's true. I really don't like going to the cinema. The last film I saw was Crocodile Dundee and I can't think of a reason to go to see another. Why? They are SO NOISY. I won't go until I can control the sound and have it at the volume I want. I have very sensitive hearing, too much noise is painful.

3 I only read non fiction.

4 I write poetry. Here is one I wrote last year when my grandson was born. Some of you have read it before.

5 I had a place at drama school (RADA) and turned down the place to become a speech therapist. I have never regretted turning it down, even though I had fun on the amateur stage. (A long time ago now)

6 I was born on the steps of a hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne. I wasn't due for a while, but came anyway and have been unpredictible ever since!

Now, who shall I tag? Well, I've decided that it's YOU. If you haven't been tagged already it's now your turn, and don't forget to let me know, I want to check up on you.....

Loved reading your "tagged secrets"! I only read non-fiction also, hate those gooey fictions.
Were there that many steps at the hospital that your mother couldn't make it up in time :)
Thanks for sharing!

I can understand not wanting to visit the loud theaters. Your poem is lovely!

I hate cinemas too- last time I went was to see ET with my children!

LOL, Margaret, that's why I went - it was my son's birthday.

I was a bit of a crazy birth too - not on the steps - but a month and 3 days late and they STILL had to induce me! You're unpredictable, I'm stubborn :P
