Five Things

I've been tagged me with the five things meme, which should be things you probably don't know about me, and probably didn't want to know :-)...

1. I have horrible feet
2. I used to be a nurse ... and a teacher
3. At the age of 15 I was a member of the Liberal Party... for six months
4. If I had been a girl, my mother intended to call me Emma .... Emma Dale.... Hmmm. Lucky escape, eh?
5. In 1976, on a school visit to Moscow I actually **** my pants in the Kremlin. Long story. I got food poisoning for six months afterwards - we called it Brehznev's revenge.

I now inflict this on tag Norfolk Blogger, Dizzy, Prague Tory, Kerron Cross and Blamerbell.

I joined CND when I was about that age. God knows why.I think your admission is , if anything more shameful though.

Cheers for the tag. Four was a startling admission. My last point was on the Kremlin too.

I can see how No 3 ties in with No 5. Is why you left the Liberal Party.

Given the hardline rulers of the time I expect you weren't the only one who **** himself in the Kremlin in the mid-70s.

"At the age of 15 I was a member of the Liberal Party"

decontamination takes longer than with Polonium.

No wonder David Steel was more afraid of the Young Liberals than of Lord Owen of Split - after all he only got into bed with the latter!

Guarded thanks for this first introduction to chain blogging.

I have feet issues too. What a joyous coincidence...

My sister hated her name as a child, as it is very uncommon in the UK. However their second choice was Emma, so she shouldbe pleased!

Given points 1 and 2, shouldn't you be supporting Gordon Broon ?

On my first school trip to France men kept stroking my hair, it was very wierd.

A nurse AND a teacher? No one can ever say you're a man who's afraid of hard work and challenging tasks!
