Oh go on then...

Since my good friend Brad Green over on http://elevatetheordinary.blogspot.com/ decided to tag me, I thought I would offer 7 things about myself without passing on the strain of tagging to some other poor unsuspecting blogger. So here we are:

  1. I worked at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden for a few years back in the day.
  2. I spent a summer in Maine, U.S.A. on a children's camp teaching ceramics in my first year at College without ever having used a kiln before. We had a few explosions.
  3. I have met Donny Osmond twice! ( Sorry about that last time Donny.)
  4. My personal alarm went off during a Mark Knoffler concert when I crept in using my staff card.
  5. Last year my husband and I visited Rome for the first time. This was a magical trip by any stretch of the imagination and we can't wait to go back again.
  6. I have an infectious laugh.
  7. I never dreamt that Boxofficegirl would be seen by so many people, even fleetingly and for this I am truly grateful.

A Very Happy New Year to you all and thanks for checking in.

  1. Ha! Good stuff! Rome is somewhere I'd love to go. You should write about that sometime.

  3. Brad, I actually found this little post quite challenging. What to say, what not...? Now stop reading this and get on with your Pulitzer prize winning novel, OK!

    Don, what is life if you haven't laughed until you cried or cried until you laughed?

  6. Mark Knoffler? My cousin Chris used to play Saxaphone with Dire Straits. He was with them from around '85 until they broke up. I remember him complaining when we were lads that his mother made him go to lessons! Wish my mother had made me go to creative writing lessons.

  7. John, right back at you babe on the creative writing front. Don't laugh but I would love to learn to play the Harp. Our house isn't big enough for us let alone a great big instrument like that but I live in hope.

    Happy New Year to you, hope that book deal is on the horizon.

  8. Donny and I are very close friends too, I didn't realise he had your number also?

  9. Did you drop a coin in the Fontana di Trevi, apparently if you do you will go back. I dropped several just in case and ended up in Rome about five more times and actually ended up living in Italy. What a magical place.

    Happy New Year Lady.)

  10. Pinky: As you well know Donny and I are like THAT!

    Selchie: We dropped a few coins just to be on the safe side. I also have my sights set on Venice for the next whistle stop tour. I just love the whole art/history atmosphere of these places.

    Happy New Year to you girlie, I'll pop over and see what you've been up to.

  11. If you're thinking of Venice, have you read The Passion by Jeanette Winterson? Fabulous and I think just up your alley.
    She says she's never been there, I'm amazed as she totally captured it for me.

  16. Don, I've been a bit out of sorts with writing lately I'm afraid. The holidays went on a little later than usual over here and things have slipped on the routine front. This week should see things back to normal...whatever normal is.

    If I do need a Donny I know exactly where to look.

  17. Okay, but stop dawdling. I want to find out what's going on with the baroque ghost story.

    Yes ... look south, way south.
