I've been tagged by Alan and A Novelist.

Five useless facts about moi:

1) I used to be a member of Th
e Labour Party.

2) When a child, I found I was born on the same day as Geroge V and convinced myself I was his reincarnation.

3) The first CD I ever bought was It's A Sin. Sadly, I had nothing to play it on for another twelve months, when I bought my first hi-fi.

4) By the age of two, my spleen had stopped working. Mum kept me alive on ice cubes and slivers of Mars Bar.

5) As a boy, I used to own a doll called Tilly. Mum knitted her a beautiful red dress with a hood. She was stolen from our car when we were in Northern Ireland in the mid to late 70s along with Pandy, my Panda. I was more upset than you'll ever know. I still gasp when I think about it. Waiting for the police to arrive meant a delay in me getting to the toilet. A lady offered me the use of her toilet. I couldn't use it as the pan was brown. I then wet myself after having told Mum I'd been.

I'm tagging:

Thank you Minge - erm, does that mean I'mto tag people on my own blog with five usless facts of my own? Please tell me what to do ...

Yes, you copy/paste - you know the rest. Then tag people yourself. I don't think it has to be a specific number. One or one hundred thousand.
