8 Things Meme

I've been tagged for a meme today. This one is the "8 Things Meme" and it comes to me from Kelly H over at Big A, little a. Here are the rules:

Each participant lists eight facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning of the post, before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags eight people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Eight things about me (anyone who's read this Blog lately - or my 100 Things About Me list - will probably know most of these already):

1 - I love "Doctor Who" - it's just about the most awesome TV show airing in the UK right now.

2 - I'm a huge fan of David Tennant (aside from the fact I think he's gorgeous - if a little bit too skinny!), he's the most charistmatic, mesmerising, engaging and compelling actor I've seen in recent years. His range and versatility are extensive, yet he remains refreshingly down-to-Earth.

3 - I got bitten by the fiction writing bug in January (thanks to aforementioned David Tennant and "Doctor Who"), and I'm now a total addict. I'm going to start a non-Who story in a couple of weeks time, once I've finished the current story-in-progress.

4 - I love to whistle, sing or hum along to music - it must drive people crazy but I rarely get moaned at for it !

5 - I absolutely adore Shakespeare.

6 - I once joined a newly formed Reading Group - and it folded two months later (cause and effect ? Hmmm...)

7 - I'm 40 next year - but in my head I'm still 21 !

8 - My favourite children's/YA authors are (in no particular order): Charles Butler, Diana Wynne Jones, Marcus Sedgwick, Rick Riordan, Philip Pullman, Susan Cooper, Linda Buckley-Archer and Terry Pratchett.

Now who am I going to tag ? Knowing my luck, everyone I want to tag has already been tagged - so if I double tag you, I apologise and don't feel you must do this again!

Sheila at Wands and Worlds
Lady_Shrapnell at So Many Books
Liz at A Chair, A Fireplace and a Tea Cozy
Elaine at Wild Rose Reader
Jules and Eisha at Seven Impossible Things (perhaps you could do one list each if you've been double tagged?)
Susan at Chicken Spaghetti
Nancy at Journey Woman
and Monica of Educating Alice.

hey, Michele. I played along with the fun meme you sent. I KNEW you had some fiction writer in you. I was surprised a while back (before the Dr. Who writing extravaganza) when you said that you did not write fiction.

I haven't written fiction in a while myself, but for three years or so, that's all I did. (One story got published. That was it.)

You're welcome Nancy !

Susan, apparently you and Kelly both knew I had a fiction writer locked away inside me somewhere before I did ! Which seems a little weird, but I'm OK with it !

Really? You love Doctor Who? And David Tennant? You hide it so well... I had no idea. ;)

Thanks for the tag. Jules and I have responded - sorta.

Michele said...

I'm glad to know I've hidden it so well Eisha !! ;-D

I'll check out your sorta-piece !

I love to be around people who hum or sing lightly. Keep it up, even if someone does moan about it.

Jules, I'll do that thing !!
