Oooh - I've never been tagged before and now I have just gotten myself tagged by Angela!

Here are the rules:

1 Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog
2 Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird
3 Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs
4 Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

Well, I have not done a taggy meme that I have not purposely chosen myself before, so here goes....

Fact One: I can whistle with my ears!! This is a long standing family joke in that I am the only one that can whistle without moving my mouth! Simply put - it only happens because I can cause feedback with my hearing aids by pushing on them and therefore whistle with my ears! ;-)

Fact Two: I can say where I come from in Danish! "Jeg kommer fra Storbritannien" - this is the only phrase I can remember from my three month stay in Denmark as part of a university exchange program years ago!

Fact Three: I love aeroplane take-offs - which is a good job as I am flying to Australia tomorrow and during the next few weeks I have eight take-offs to deal with if I have reckoned it right. I just love that sensation of power and speed and sense of exhilaration (not to mention acceleration!) - always puts a huge grin on my face!

Fact Four: As a very young child I had a Guinea Pig called Pascal - but for some reason I don't seem to remember this poor little Guinea Pig that I probably adored!

Fact Five: I like to sing, when perhaps I really shouldn't sing at all!! (best done in the car when no-one can hear me, even if I might look a bit silly at traffic lights - but then all the people around me might imagine that I am practising for a concert or something!! ha ha! They don't know that I shouldn't sing!)

Fact Six: I love the feel of my cat Phoebe slumping against me last thing at night - she really drops herself down quite forcefully against my leg, back, tummy or wherever she decides to put herself! (it just feels all cuddly and comforting)

Fact Seven: At this very moment I am rather giddily excited due to imminent holiday - a whistlestop tour of Australia with my cousin's wedding in the middle! My colleagues have been laughing at with me all day!

And those are my seven facts - I now have to go and choose who to tag with this one.

And I choose....Laura, Jen, Shauna, Gawpo, Susan, John, and finally, Matt (perhaps he'll do this one - he didn't do the last meme I tagged him with! Tch...brothers!).

The kitty one made me awww.... we haven't had cats for ages. I miss their companionship :( give your baby a big snuggle cuddle for me!

I don't know how to tag or anything! And fyi, I don't remember YOU having a childhood!

I love take offs too! The sudden acceleration and the feel of the plane as it ascends, leaving the ground and then settling into the sky.

Have a wonderful and safe trip!

I hope you have a great trip down here!!! :)

Oma Gunness! You are in Australia as we speak. Or write. Or maybe you are still en route and enjoying your airplane takeoffs. Guess what---that is my second to favorite part about flying. In the big jets I love that the most. But in my own airplane, I love landing. Because if you do it right, you get to live. Yeah. That's pretty cool. Getting to live.

My mom always says that she sings for her own pleasure and everyone else's amusement!

I was going through my SPAM filter and found your comments...I'm sorry if it seemed as though I was ignoring you, I didn't even know you were visiting me! (although, I guess that technically, I was ignoring you)

I will do that tag again one of these days...I keep getting tagged to do it! Thanks for thinking of me. :)
