I've been tagged by Jenny at JennyFlower and also by Anna at Marmadaisy. Anna's tag included another "brilliant blog" award! Thank you both! And huge congratulations to Anna on getting an A in your exam. Well done!! Without further ado, because i've been delayed replying to the tags due to post holiday washing disorder, here are the rules as from Jenny's blog, and my 6 random things ...
1. Link to the person who “tagged” you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when you have answered.
1. I have 6 tattoos - 3 on my back, one on my right arm, one behind my ear and one on my left foot. (that's me above with a corset I made).
2. I have about 20 piercings, but only 6 are "active", 2 in each ear (16 holes in total there), one in my navel, one in my tongue and the other 2 matching a bit lower down. (no not that far!)
3. I am a qualified beauty therapist and nail technician. I did both these things 10 years ago, but soon became disillusioned by the industry so reverted back to default in an office.
4. When I left secretarial college 10 years before i went to beauty college (which is what i really wanted to do if my parents hadn't insisted I had to be a secretary) I could write shorthand at 100wpm and type at 70wpm on a typewriter - wordprocessors didn't exist in those days!
5. I went to a boys boarding school in Scotland with 29 other girls, but was expelled when I was 15 for being "uncontrollable".
6. September is my favourite month, because despite being "uncontrollable" I actually loved school and was always glad to get back there after the long summer holidays.

I think most blogs I read have now been tagged with this, so I won't tag anyone specifically. Do feel free to join in if you haven't already though!

heehee, you naughty girl! Loved your list, and you looks AMAZING in that beautiful corset, do you make ones that cover an entire body, I wonder...?x

That's fab! Different to the other answers I've read to that meme. And that photo, that corset. It's amazing. I thought I was going to be reading about Dita or burlesque :o). It looks stunning.

Good lord, woman, that photo! Thank goodness I am a happily married heterosexual woman, because even so, it is titillating. :)

I want to copy that photo, but seeing as I have neither tattoos nor corsets I shall have to live without. What interesting facts about you!

The world needs the uncontrollable to push the boundaries and remind us of our true potential.

I liked your list.

hehehe...Such fun to read your list! And LOVE that corset! I've not made such a thing before, is it difficult? Happy weekend ((HUGS))

Lesley said...

Great random facts and that corset is amzing!!

I love that you got expelled from a boys' school :)


Gina said...

I love your random things. I've still got to do this and I can't think of anything so wonderful or interesting. I'm in total awe of your corset making skills... not to mention your waist!

Great list! I love that tattoo, and I have to say, especially with that corset, you have one very sexy back!
