Six Random Things

I have been tagged by Kate! To join in the fun I must reveal 6 random things about myself. Okay then. Will do.

1) According to my Mum, the first word I said was ‘Batman’.

2) This is the ringtone on my mobile phone:



3) This is one of my favourite pieces of art. ‘Can’t Play, Won’t play’ by Lucy Wood. It is a full sized trampoline, but made with glass instead of canvas.



4) People have referred to me as: ‘The Bouncing Bomb’; ‘Radar’ and ‘Duracell’

5) At present I am beside myself with excitement because the new zombie series ‘Dead Set’ begins on Monday on E4. This is Charlie Brooker’s first TV drama. He’s better known for his satirical show ‘Screenwipe’ [BBC3] and as a columnist in the Guardian. I love his writing. I love zombie films. I sometimes watch Big Brother. Even better, is that Davina McCall gets made into a zombie.

6) In damp conditions my hair goes a bit kinky. I am not a natural blonde.

Tag rules: Link to the person who tagged you. Post the rules on your blog. Write 6 random things about yourself. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog. Let the tagger know when your entry is posted...

So I’d like to tag: Mrs P, Beasty, Wendy, Kevin, Ms Cakes, and Mr Gyppo

Kate Lord Brown said...

Bravo Miss Scarlet - much rather a Duracell bunny than 'Ever Ready'! Have a kinky blonde weekend x

Gorilla Bananas said...

Your first word was Batman? It must have been the theme song that did it, it's difficult not to say Batman after hearing that. Poor little boy wonder misses out again! The kinky hair is just what I'd expect of a kittenish woman.

scarlet-blue said...

Thank you Kate! I enjoyed doing this, but I couldn't help plugging something could I?! You have a nice weekend too.

Yep, GB, it was the theme tune what did it! I met plenty of wonder boys as I grew up - never a patch on Batman!

Donn Coppens said...

You're NOT a natural Blonde?

Naturally I am quite intrigued by your nicknames..any chance of expanding on their origins?

I hope that We get Dead Set across the Pond..I love Zombies too!

Just out of curiosity...has anyone ever said, Frankly Scarlett, I GIVE a damn?

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Coppens - I'm going to leave the truth about the nicknames to your imagination - you'll probably have much more fun that way . . .
And as for your last question: I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Scarlet, this is grim beyond all human imaginings. You have to remember that it is a long, long time since I left the schoolroom,so this sort of organised jollity leaves me a bit cold. Also, I don't have the ego for it. Who on earth would be interested in 6 random things about me? Not even me, to be honest.
Soz.
And Mr Gorilla Bananas! I pine for you.

:: Wendy :: said...

Why thankyou for thinking and linking with me Ms. Scarlet. Normally I try to avoid anything that smells like pyramid selling, Napalm or chain letters so now I'm all a quandry. Can I just tell you the nice people ho's blogs I read, and write to them and tell them that they have highly readable blogs too instead of asking them to produce 6 personal trivial things and ask 6 of thier contacts to do the same.

Is that ok with you?

Kevin Musgrove said...

I've done my bit. And not one Screen Test video.

KAZ said...

Yeah - Charlie Brooker.
Enters in diary for Monday.

Charlie and I share a deep hatred of the same things - except spiders which I quite like.

scarlet-blue said...

Oh, but you'd be perfect for it MrsP . . . I want to know 6 random things about you!! And Wendy you'd be perfect for it too, but I understand and no worries.

Well done Kev! We'll have to talk abot Screen Test another time then.

Oh Kaz, 'Dead Set' is shown every night next week!!!! Like Big Brother!!! I'm really am beside myself . . .

Sx

scarlet-blue said...

. . . or possibly even about Screen test . . . spelling . . .

Practically Joe said...

I love big brother!
We are so much alike.
I even like zombies.
We serve them in our restaurant.

scarlet-blue said...

I noticed that Joe, I was most intrigued.

Gyppo Byard said...

Interesting. I have duly responded in kind!

Jade of the Jungle said...

Love it! Especially the Batman revelation - what a wonderful character you exposed at such a young age, your parents must have been dead chuffed! :)

Also loving the Lucy Wood

J x

scarlet-blue said...

Thank-you Mr Gyppo!

Jade, I was a born telly addict! I think Batman was my babysitter.

savannah said...

i thought i left a comment here, sugar! *sigh* i'm far too tired these days to remember anything....but i digress, i love your 6 random things list! ;)

scarlet-blue said...

Don't worry Savannah, I'm always forgetting where I left things as well. And thank-you, it was a fun list to make.

inkspot said...

Bleeugh. Ooh, I feel better now.

Where am I? Oh yes, I remember, I came to point out that being zombified is far too good for Davina McCall.

scarlet-blue said...

I suppose I'm going to have to get the Dyson out to clear up after you now, aren't I Inky?

Apparently she makes a very good zombie . . . I can't wait . . . !

BEAST said...

I have knocked out my meme in my lunch break :-)

Mrs Pouncer said...

Sorry Scarlet, I meant to come back and tell you I'd done my 6 random things, but then I got confused or pissed or something, ended up round at Gyppo's and left a message for you there. Anyway, I did do them after all.

PI said...

Scarlet: you say you are not a natural blonde but is the ravishing photo yourself? If I were man I would fancy you:)

Mrs Pouncer said...

Pat! You innocent! It's a morph of two famous actresses - SJ and MM are their initials. However, Scarls SWEARS it's an excellent likeness.

scarlet-blue said...

Excellent meme Beasty! Have you read Mrs P's?

Pat, why thank-you Pat and yes it is an excellent likeness - if you squint a bit and use your imagination, but don't tell Mrs P I said that . . .

Mrs P, I swear it takes time, money and digital photography to look this good. I would put up a real pic, but sadly I don't know how to work the scanner . . .

Sx

Mrs Pouncer said...

Funnily enough, Scarly, a close personal has offered to take some likenesses of me this weekend. Hopefully, some will be obscure enough to use on my blog. A bit like that party game we used to play, where you had to identify ordinary household items that had been pictured from unusual angles; two grapefruit tied in a napkin, that sort of thing. Not that any part of me looks like two grapefruit tied in a napkin ....... no, wait ......... maybe a little. Wrong colour, though.

scarlet-blue said...

I shall look forward to your photo montage.
Two grapefruits tied to a napkin doesn't sound too bad actually . . . .

Gadjo Dilo said...

Batmaaaaan!! I can see you now zooming around chanting that as a carrot-topped ("Duracell"?) 3-year-old, perhaps also pretending to be a zombie at the same time!

scarlet-blue said...

Hello Gadj, Before I continue let me make one thing clear I AM NOT GINGER. No offence to ginger people etc. The nickname 'Duracell' refers to my propensity to keep going no matter what. I'm like a dog with a bone . . . .
I do feel like a bit of a zombie this morning though . . .

Ginro said...

Batman has always been my fsvourite, my ringtone is the phone sound they use on 24, and Davina McCall made up as a zombie bears a truly, genuinely, scarily, uncanny, resemblance to my ex-wife, lol!

Mrs Pouncer said...

Scarly, do you have ginger hair? No, really, I want you to look me in the eye, not in that squinty way, properly, and tell me the truth. Gadji, who never ever lies, thinks you do.

scarlet-blue said...

I don't think the acting was up to much on 'Dead Set' last night, but Davina as a zombie made up for it. I'm looking forward to tonight's episode.
Ginro, Tell your ex-wife to get herself along to the nearest Estee Lauder counter - they can work magic.
Sx

AND NO, MRS P, I AM NOT FLIPPING GINGER!!!! NOT ANOTHER BLIMMIN' WORD ABOUT IT DO YOU HEAR?????
. . . and breathe . . .

PI said...

Ah now I see. That's brilliantly clever. Wish I'd thought of that. I'd choose Audrey and Vivien.

scarlet-blue said...

Hi Pat, try http://www.morphthing.com/
I'm giving away all my secrets today!

Glamourpuss said...

Someone told me about a movie called Zombie Strippers this morning - apparently it's set in Spearmint Rhino and all the strippers turn into zombies and Jenna Jameson is in it. I need to see that movie.

scarlet-blue said...

Spot on Puss!!

I've added it to my list of 'must-sees'

Kevin Musgrove said...

I looked at that morph thing. Sophie Ellis Bexter and Barack Obama seem to have Claudia Christian as their love child.

scarlet-blue said...

Fun isn't it Kev?!

ChrisV82 said...

That's my ring, too, but only for texts. It adds a little class to anotherwise classless world.

scarlet-blue said...

You have taste Mr v82
