Tag, I'm IT

Right. Much like playing chasey in school, Blog Crack has tagged me, and therefore I'm IT.

Apparently me being 'IT' means that I have to reveal 5 things my fellow bloggers don't know about me. Here they are:

1. I was a professional ballroom dancer. Yes, in the style of 'Strictly Come Dancing' I started competing in Ballroom and Latin American dancing competitions from the age of 4 (no, really). I now only do the occasional class for fun in London and my muscles scream in agony as a result.

2. I'm starting a degree in psychology in February next year. It will be my second degree, as I made stupid choices the first time around. I'm very excited about it and will start psycho-analysing all of you in the process.

3. I once went to a clairvoyant who mentioned 29 names during the course of the 'reading', and the context in which I either knew these people, or would do. I knew 26 of them, and the other 3 I met the following week.

4. I used to tell all my childhood/adolescent secrets to my cat, who was given to me on my 7th birthday and died when I was 24. I used to whisper the secrets in his ear and then feel better because I had told him. He never told anyone else my secrets.

5. I once snubbed Kylie Minogue in a nightclub, when a friend introduced her as 'a fellow antipodean'.

He has never let me forget this.

I also made stupid choices when I got my first degree. I'm glad I grew up and go a second one.

Did you mean to snub Kylie?

I definitely made stupid choices. But have I grown up? That's another question.

No, I didn't mean to snub Kylie. I was completely wasted and didn't recognise her in the slightest!

YOU WERE A professional BALLROOM DANCER??!! Wow. That is so cool Ziggy. I'm so impressed. wow.

Are you still going to work while attending school? Yeah, all my schooling geared me towards being a CIA agent and now I'm a writer -- go figure. 3.5 years of Arabic for nothing.

I loved the story about your cat. mrow. You SNUBBED Kylie? You go girl.

Don't you hate that Anhoni? All that work to reach a decision you want to do something completely different. Oh well. Yeah, I'm going to continue working and study 'externally'. Which should be interesting given how little self control I have.

and my little cat took so many secrets of mine to the grave with him....

I've studied Psychology, I think its one of the most interesting and enjoyable parts of my entire education. Ever!

And I've always wanted to dance like that from the first time I saw Queer as Folk (US) and the two guys were dancing together. Now whenever I see ballroom dancing on Tv or wherever I wish I could do it too!

DM... I agree re. Psych and there is nothing stopping you learning how to dance.... go for it!

Ballroom dancing is so sensual, I wish I could do it. I saw "Shall We Dance?" just last week..rented the movie...I thought it was great. Just wish there was MORE Dancing in it!

Snubbing Kylie Mingue gives you 10 cool point, my friend. I hate that plastic bitch.

ziggystardust73 said...

dabich, it may look sensual but when you're actually doing it, it sure doesn't feel it! still, it is beautiful to watch.

scribe, I love Kylie. So you may have given me the cool points for snubbing her, but, in fact, I am going to automatically deduct those from my tally again. I'm gay remember. Therefore, Kylie is a GOD.

scribe said...

Damn I hate gay loopholes!!! LOL
