I've been tagged for a five things meme by anyasbuttmonkey so here goes:

Name five things (most) people don't know about you:

1. I still sleep with the teddy bear I was given at birth. He goes on holiday with me and once almost caused me to break up with a boyfriend that later became my ex-husband. (X threw my teddy across the room because he was 'getting in the way'. I informed X that teddy had been sharing my bed a lot longer than he had, and that if he wanted to continue to share my bed he could damn well get out of it right now and fetch my teddy back. He did.

2. My hen night was raided by the police. I had a hugely illegal lock-knife in a pocket in my bag. The cops were so busy passing around my leather jacket to read the rude pins and badges that they didn't seem to notice they hadn't searched said bag. No arrest for me, yay!

3. I still have my xmyth tree up from xmyth 2001. And I will not take it down because that would make Eeyore homeless. Besides, it's pretty!

4. I collect glass paperweights with tiny glass fish in them. Yeah, I know - sometimes I wonder about me too, but they're so tacky and cute! And I'm Pisces, so it's a thing, okay? :P

5. I can easily spend an hour stargazing on a cloudless night - more if I have my starmap with me. And I still get a buzz from (and make a wish when) seeing a 'falling star' even though I know the scientific explanation. I also still play at finding pictures in the clouds, sometimes even on my way to work. :D

And I have no idea who's done this already so, if you want to play, consider yourself tagged!

1. Heh. I bet he *loved* that!
2. I. Don't. Even. Want. To. Know.
3. So if things go horribly wrong at Horbling, we know who to blame for all the bad luck :P
4. Oooh, cool! Tacky, but cool, for I am of the Pisces too - but you already know that :)
5. I wish I could stargaze more often, but splitting your time between metropolitan centres doesn't lend itself to even seeing *one* star, let alone a sky filled with them.

1. Oh yeah, he was really impressed. But he did it. :D
2. I lived in a rough neighbourhood! It was a gift! His name is Henry and he's been a lot of places with me. *g*
3. Hey, that tree's been up since way before Horbling #1 and nothing's happened so far! :P
4. Yes yes! Pesky Piskies rool. :D
5. That's probably why I spend so long with a crick in my neck. growing up in Wolverhampton I could just about make out Ursa Major on a clear moonless night. Now, from my back garden, I can see the Milky Way and thousands of pinpricks of light. It's stunning.
