One thing at a time

It seems whilst I’ve been off being a busy lady, I’ve been gathering a backlog of tasks to complete. I’ve decided I’m going to tackle them one at a time.

Task no. 1 Gill and Jo have both tagged me for 8 more things…. So here we go….

8 Random Facts

1: I think I’m the only person in the UK who is glad that the weather has not been good over the summer.

2: I love Louis Armstong and Ella Fitzgerald, I love Django Reinhardt and Stephane Graphelli too. If I could only have two CD’s to listen to for the rest of my life – it would be one by each pairing as much as it would pain me to give up the Divine Comedy.

3: I’ve never been to the USA. I want to go to Connecticut or New England for the Autumn and Winter, but sometimes I don’t want to because if it isn’t like Baby Boom (especially the scene at the dance – Moonlight in Vermont is one of my favourite songs) and Little Women rolled into one then I don’t want to be disappointed.

4: I adore being up late at night or early in the morning on my own especially in the winter. I love Autumn and Winter and I quite like spring – summer –mmmmphhhh – you can keep it.

5: I think I’d make a great character in Northern Exposure. I’d adore that kind of life where people are quirky and accepting. Plus you’d get to wake up in a place where it snows early in the morning (see no.4)

6: I live in a dream world 50% of the time – it’s partly a coping mechanism for the aspects of the world I don’t like, and partly….well it’s more pleasant there, I only generally come out for work!

7: I like being a Librarian, or rather I like being an unexpected Librarian most people don’t believe me when I tell them what I do (I like that) though to be honest, If I had my time again and I could get in, I’d go to art school and then do something businessy and live in a whole different way. All I have to do now is work out how to get “there” from “here” (dream world again)

8: I like Liverpool honest I do, its just I can’t imagine how much longer I’m going to able to live here without losing something.

I’m not going to tag anyone – I think everyone has been tagged. Instead, think about 8 random facts about you, I bet they are no odder than mine!

Okay Sarah, how can I put this? - are you my long lost (evil or otherwise) twin? I will tell you why;

I could do without the Summer - yes, it's true..

I want to go to New England in the Fall

Baby Boom is one of my absolutely absolutely favourite films ever!! (ask your mum, I'm sure I've told her this too). I want that house, that baby and that vet!

Northern Exposure? - YES PLEASE!

Dream World? - well, duh!

Are you getting the idea Sarah????

Spooky huh? xxxx

Gill at Lucy Locket said...

I'm not keen on hot weather either! I much prefer Autumn and Spring.
It's been fun finding out more baout you, thanks for playing along. I'm looking out for Baby Boom now, bet everyone snaps it up on Ebay....

Oooh, I really like Stephane Grappelli - in fact, I've got the album "The Very Best of Grappelli & Menuhin", which I listen to on cool Autumn days whilst doing the housework. And as for Summer, I used to dislike it, and prefer Autumn/Winter, but having said that, I long for all the seasons in turn. Summer is stifling, but I love it for its long nights and cool evenings. Lovely 8 facts :)

What is this dream world business? Surely that is just being able to see things that ordinary mortals miss? (And, yes, I live there too.)
And, if you and Papoosue get the trip into New England, can I carry the luggage?

I have stumbled across your blog (whilst hiding from my children) and I am amazed. Firstly that there are other people who do not like it when it is really hot,24 degrees is my top limit. I also like Autumn and Spring. None of my friends have heard of hte film Baby Boom and I love it. Fantastic

Hi Sarah! I haven't seen Baby Boom ,is the house in it nice in a Practical Magic kind of way? I'd love to go to New England too! Perhaps we should arrange a Bloggers convention there, tee-hee!!

Sophie Honeysuckle said...

I'm going to get it off Amazon!!Haha! Why don't they have blogger conventions here-they do in the States! We are so backward over here!!!! Have a fun weekend!!

I LOVED northern exposure. I watched it religiously and everyone had to be quiet when it came on. I might see if I can get it on DVD. Thanks for reminding me about it!

Can I tag along when you all go off to New England too?
