    Things you may not have ever posted about before, as mundane or bizarre as you like[​IMG]

    1 I broke my coccyx in 1979. Fell down a flight of concrete stairs at work. Scared the bejeezus out of everyone, including myself!

    2 I met Freddie Mercury in the bar of the Lord Leycester Hotel in Warwick in 1979. 'I said to him...You're Freddie Mercury'. He said 'I am'. I said 'Cool. Can I buy you a drink?'. He was lovely. Really lovely!

    3 I can hand milk cows and goats. Now that's a real skill for when the zombie apocalypse happens! (Although my ability with a crossbow is my real apocalypse-survuving skill)

    4 I ran away from home when I was 13..... along the M6 on my pushbike, in my school uniform! I got from Warwick to Wolverhampton before the police collared me at 9.30 at night. I was heading for Yorkshire! Yeah, go figure. I reckoned I was going to live wild on the moors!

    5 While working at the NAC at Stoneleigh I fell 10ft out of a barn when I forgot to let go of the bale of hay I was throwing down. Only two weeks before that I had pinned my foot to the floor with a pitchfork.


    So there are my 5. What are yours? :D

    Haha, are you a little accident prone?
    You didn't use your STIG claim to fame!!

    1) I also fractured/bent? my Coccyx. When I was 22, a few hours before boarding a plane to Greece. :Inpain
    2) I split my head open on Millennium eve and I started my new job a few days later in a prison with 4 staples in my head and feeling very rough :Hurting
    3) I was the first in the UK to provide the support for the launch of the 3G mobile network. Then made a stupid decision not to train CSRs in Delhi for 6 weeks. Because of a new damn boyfriend :Banghead
    4) I have a huge desire to live in the Scottish wilderness.
    5) I think I have Misophonia.

    :Shy

    1. I had a crush fracture to my L1 vertebra after falling off a horse in the 1990's - we had tickets to see George Benson that night so obviously missed the show.
    2. I am scared of people with masks on such as clowns or humans in animal costumes.
    3. I have two webbed toes on each foot.
    4. My thumbs don't match.
    5. I have been on the tele - Right To Reply on Channel 4 in the 80's arguing about vivisection with a TV presenter from World In Action (I think that is what it was called - it was the ITV version of Panorama).

    Here here :)
    I sometimes stop and think "hang on I don't have any real friends anymore" then think "but I don't care, I'm happy with that" who says I have too?

    I was born on Mother's Day

    I'm bilingual

    I'm addicted to Diet Coke, which as addictions go is pretty sad. But at least it's not heroin.

    I'm a human disaster

    My dogs are the best dogs

    Little point in me contributing to your thread, you should ask a few 'others' who appear to be far more knowledgeable about me and who I am than I do:D.
    I've read some rare claims over the past and would, myself, be intrigued to know what other 'assumed' facts these same people profess to know about me.;)

    However, the less you know about me the better it will be for you.....


    Believe me, you don't want Zaros inside your head
