Rules: If you're tagged you must list 6 random facts about yourself - 3 true 3 false, so people can guess which are which. Then tag 6 people to do this meme.

I won't be tagging anyone (I'm too lazy)--if you want to do the meme and haven't already, then feel free. Also, there might be a bit of truth to some of these just to make things harder.

1. I've been in an Order that requires me to not be around "others" when eating.

2. The first time I went to the snow I only had a t-shirt on.

3. I was married for a while when I was younger.

4. I was once selected to go and recite Shakespeare to the senior teachers.

5. I won a telly without even trying for it.

6. I've been asked to help collect teachers names for my school reunion.

This is slightly tough, but I'll say that #'s 4, 5, and...2 are true.

Hey! No fair using telepathy! :P

Yeah, you got them all right (although what was hard?).

1 - Is based on something someone once said to me, that when she was working down the back someone thought I was in a cult or something because I never ate with anyone or in the canteen, always going off on my own (to - gasp - read!) And before you say anything about couches, this was a few years before it was fashionable to jump on them.

2 - Yup, true. Well, it was the last day of May, in Scotland (so all the seasons were backwards like what you have ;)), I was dressed for summer, and suddenly we're driving along and there's SNOW on a mountain we're passing! Just sitting there, clear day, but being from somewhere that never gets it...

3 - Is once again based on something someone once thought, that I'd been married but it ended badly. Never have been though. Le sigh.

4 - Yup, the task was to learn 20 or so lines of Julius Caesar, our teacher (being a very peppy person) was impressed, and wanted me to go recite to the deputy principal (who was slightly less scary this year but still scary). And to quote an old tv show - saved by the bell!

5 - Yep. And it wasn't even the major prize! The major prize was a trip to London - in the cockpit mind you, as a cadet pilot! Of course, this was many years ago - about 1992ish I think. It was the Philips "Explorer" set - I'm certain I made a post about it sometime, especially when I had to replace it, but no idea what post.

6 - Utter lie. Which you knew, knowing my thoughts on school reunions. I do help other people with their lists though.

Whoops. :lol:

...this was a few years before it was fashionable to jump on them.

Apparently not so fashionable anymore, judging by the firing of Cruise.

(although what was hard?)

For a brief second I thought maybe you had been asked about #6. I knew you would refuse (definitely remember your dislike of reunions), but you never know if they asked.
