8 More Random Facts

Amber of Random Magus fame has tagged me to reveal 8 random facts about myself. Whilst I have previously posted on this meme here, I reckon there are a few more things I can say.

The rules are these -
  • Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
  • Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
  • Players should tag 8 other people and notify them that they have been tagged.
1. I am one of three children and have two younger sisters.
2. Mum lost a brother between my two sisters and I have always wondered what it would have been like to have a brother.
3. I have only lived in two places I would really call home.
4. My dog Chai, part German Shorthaired Pointer, lived for 17 years.
5. I started a Masters in Geography but joined the police force instead.
6. I have been out of Australia twice - once to Macquarie Island in the sub-Antarctic, and once to Washington DC for a counter-terrorism conference four months before 911.
7. I saw my first dead body whilst at the Police Academy in early 1982.
8. I was once petrified of public speaking but now I'm OK with it.

I will try and tag people who I haven't tagged before and who I don't know may have already answered this one -

Little White Liar
Looking Beyond the Cracked Window
Wiping Up Snot
The Rest of Me
Sleeping Kitten Dancing Dog
Sunset Pig

As always folks - I'd like to read the replies but don't feel obliged :)

Have you not even been to a funeral before 1982?

Random Magus said...

I have a brother and always wished that I had an older sister...

Many funerals Jeff, but only one viewing and I did forget that one. It was my Grandfather, or at least the vessel that held him. I have regretted ever since that that was my last memory of him.

Viewings aren't all that common over here.

Interesting - how did you get over your fear of public speaking?

Loz said...
