    1 - I don't like monkeys either - nasty dirty vicious little buggers that are always doing sex to each other at the zoo so you were constantly covering the kids' eyes!

    2 - I have knocked myself out due to my own sheer stupidity 11 times, and been knocked out due to other people's actions 3 times (as far as I can remember - my brain has a lot of broken bits in it)

    3 - One of my being knocked out due to other people's actions was when I had my skull bounced off a sink in a nightclub toilet (Hot Rats in Sunderland), because some lass thought I was trying to pinch her mate's boyfriend. It turned out I was just wearing the same dress. (As the boyfriend thief, not the boyfriend haha). I came to with blood all over me, and a mouthful of broken teeth.

    4 - I am mildly dyslexic and have NO SENSE OF DIRECTION AT ALL! Trust me - I really don't.

    (Have to go out now - I'll do more later)

    4. I have 7 nieces/nephews and 6 great nieces/nephews (my sister started very young lol)

    5. I used to work in an office where one ladies hubby was in the Average White Band and anothers wrote You To Me Are Everything and he also released the Stevie Wonder song Isn't She Lovely (cus Stevie Wonder wouldn't release it as a single so he did and I think it got to number 1 in the UK)
