A little light relief


About a month ago, Cliff at This Is This tagged me, but I only just realized a couple of days ago cos it happened to coincide with my holiday to Spain for Red's birthday.

Anyway the tag is Six Things Most People Don't Know About Me, and this is a mix of real-life people and blog people I'm talking here.

1. I was a mod. For a couple of hours for a segment of BBC TV's The Clothes Show. (That's me in the picture above.) This was at a time of my life when I used to do a bit of acting and directing. The other highlight was a double-bill fringe production in Covent Garden; half of it I was in, the other half I directed.

2. Obviously anyone who knows me in the flesh knows this: I'm losing my hair. Well, I've been losing my hair since about the time I started growing hair. I guess it comes to us all, and I've just got to live with it. That said, I have considered buying a wig. Not a toupée -- I'd never do that. A proper, full-on, theatrical wig. Long and dark; or short and blond and spiky.

3. I think there are certain things that don't belong in a burger. I'll come back to this in more detail in my next post...

4. Yesterday I made an appointment to get my next tattoo started. I'm psyched. It's with a tattooist I haven't been to before, and it's going to take up most of my right arm, covering up one of my old ones in the process. Red's paying for the first session for my birthday present. Ain't she lovely?

5. Most people don't know I've got a blog, or however many blogs I currently have. It's quite a few now, isn't it? I've told about four people, one of whom is family. As far as I know, none of them has told anyone else, and I'm pretty sure that none of these people ever visits. Not sure why, though.

6. I consider myself to be a romantic. Well, it's Valentine's Day, innit?

It's been a while since I did a tag/meme thing, and I won't tag anyone in particular. If you wanna do it, knock yerself out. Let me know, though, so I can come and take a look.

Another tattoo? We, the readers, demand pictures of tattoo once completed.

Nice tag, though...

I agree with Karen. Look at that guy from Masterchef the other night. Cute, and not much hair on him. I'm not sure I dig the wig...

you were never a mod wearing such a cliched thing! and to boot it looks like it has been fucking ironed! thats like saying you are a footballer cos you have an england kit (most of the present squad take note!)

but cool post as usual!

(on the subject of hair, i once decided to grow mine so as to have it permed a'la brian johnsone (ac/dc), but found it hard to do in a hurry, and it didn't quite go with my real parka [which is now 24 years old!]
but i have a six flat top that stuck six inches out from my forehead!)

That was interesting weird how a post seems more mysterious when we are asked to reveal things people don't know about us...

You could have tattoo hair?

can i apologise for what seems like a rant aimed at you personally? wasn't intended like that, just in one of those moods yesterday. i had already been classed as a right wing, goosestepping skinhead already and seemed to vent my spleen here for some reason.

T: You betcha!

Karen: And so I am.

Red: Umm, what about him??? Wigs rock!

Cappy: It's not like they were my clothes. I got paid to wear 'em and I got on telly. What more could you ask?

Red: Romantic me is what I am.

Martha: We had a nice day, despite having to work, thanks.

Candy: That is true, isn't it? Weird!

LDB: I'm not sure that would rock enough.

Cappy: No worries, man!
