Now, that wasn’t so hard, was it?

Author: Helen

Ariel tagged me for a meme on weird and wonderful things your kid does, which reminded me I’ve been sitting on a meme that Bernice tagged me for aeons ago. So I’ll do that one first and tackle the Quirky Kid next.

The rules of this meme are:
Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names, and links to their blogs.
Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. Procrastination is one of my worst faults. (“NO SHIT?!” I hear you say.)
2. I lived in Adelaide until the age of 15, so although I’m a rusted-on Melbournian now, I was a crow eater. I feel a pleasant nostalgia now when I read Adelaide blogs and see references to Burnside, North Terrace, Rundle Mall and other evocative names.
3. Unlike it seems 99% of humanity, I love all things brassica. A pile of brussel sprouts steamed with some butter and garlic and salt and I’m in heaven. Broccoli, Chinese or Italian, and cauliflower, stir fried or with cheesy sauce. Mmmm, cheese…
4. I just got my first grey hair. It’s sitting in the middle of the front of my hairline, waiting for others to join it.
5. I’ve got a vertical scar in the middle of my forehead, a bit like Harry Potter’s but not from any attack by Lord Voldemort. It’s from a flat stone flung by my friend, Gary, when I was six. (Not flung in anger, or flung at me at all; we were skipping stones at Short Beach, Connecticut, and his hand slipped. He was mortified, and gave me one of his plastic dinosaurs, which I kept for years, after I’d had my stitches.)
 
Cute lovable kid stuff coming up next soon at some point.

I’m tagging Ariel, L., JahTeh and the Hoydens (both of them).

    Oh dear, I checked Bernice’s post again and Hoyden About Town was already nominated there. Can I add the fact that I’m an idiot?

  • Ariel says:

    Thanks Helen. And there you go, we’re two Yarraville-based ex-Adelaideans. I guess there’s a lot of us in Melbourne …

    I actually love broccoli & cauliflower too. Give me broccoli or brussel sprouts over peas any day …

  • Bwca says:

    … apparently the flavour of Brussels Sprouts is enhanced by the addition of nutmeg. I keep meaning to try it …

  • […] It’s Cast-iron Helen’s turn to reveal five startling facts about herself. What ever might be said about the other revelations, some pooling of facts on who’s got scars where is obviously long overdue. […]

  • I like your weird stuff.

    And I’m the 1 % of humanity who also likes brussell sprouts & those other vegies. And I like them overcooked. Until they’re almost grey. Specially on a day like this. Mmmm.

    AAAAAARRRRGGGHGGHGHGHHHHGGHGH!

    Not just vomiting, but unexpected vomiting. Taken from behind, after an innocuous click.

    Actually its only the sprouts that horrify me, and then only after secret trauma at the age of three.

    FIRST GREY HAIR? so unfair….. you lucky thing you.

    Tony of AGB has been known to drive ten minutes in his lunch hour for a special meal of brussel sprouts from a Chinese takeaway (or was it Thai?)
    I am a brassicavore too.
