lame


Tagged by Elinor in the lame meme

1. I once went to a fancy dress party dressed as Florence from the Magic Roundabout and won.
2. I don't really see the point of memes but do them anyway.
3. At school, I learned to do fast, backwards, mirror handwriting. Worryingly, I can still do it.
4. I'm a magpie. In London I used to have a box full of odd gold and silver trinkets that I found on the pavement and on tube seats. I once found a thick gold bracelet lying right outside my front gate in Camberwell. I never wear anything gold. Every so often I'd go and take it to be melted down and then start all over again.

In this country, I've never found a thing - maybe because there's so many people looking
5. When I was a teen I used to go to the Orrell Legion disco in Wigan with two gold stripes painted in my hair. One time the bus driver asked if a motorbike had run over my head.

Oh Florence, my Dad used to call me Zebedee for many years when I was little. I had forgotten that.

What did you do with the gold you had melted down?

the shop weighed it and then gave me (not much) cash for it. They melted it. I'd just get tired of it after a while - buckles - odd earrings, charms all sorts...

that's funny Pot - we had a dog called Zebedee

yeah i think my dad would have preferred a dog...

I'm sure there's a Bagpuss episode in your gold collecting.

Aww FA - That's sweet, you winning as Florence. Mirror handwriting is cool a la da vinci.
