Seven Things

The evil overlord Sean the Blogonaut has tagged me AGAIN!

I have to list seven random and/or weird things about me. There's nothing unusual or weird about me... what are you talking about?

1/ I was born on the same day (not year) that Bertrand Russell, Pope Clement XIII and Sid Vicious died. It's also Ground Hog day in the US.

2/ I'm a redhead with freckles and choose to shave my head. (Actually it's cause it was receding a little bit and the sides would grow fastest so I kept getting called "Crusty the Clown)

3/ I have acute senses and can tell what soap someone used to wash their hands with from 20M and flourescent lights drive me batty 'cause of the flickering.

4/ I lived in Bali Indonesia for 12 months in a "haunted" house.

5/ When I was 15 and learning to drum I found I could get my Led Zeppelin records and observe where the songs started from the label position and then "scratch" a permanent count in to all the tracks by pushing down on the tonearm so I could drum along . It was cool.

6/ Most people that know me or of me believe I can fix anything electronic.

7/ At around 12 or 13 I dismantled my parents TV set, a brand new valve black & white unit and one of only a few in the street. They were very upset by this but I did manage to get it back together and working.

I tag...

Pulling apart your parents TV definitely sent you down the right road....your skills in electronics are AMAZING...I mean who else reads schematics like I read books...and who else in town has so many loyal and devoted fans...
