ten things meme [Feb. 25th, 2005|08:13 pm]
Peter Sheil
Ten things I've done that you probably haven't:
  1. Flown solo in a glider.
  2. Been to Russia - school trip back when I was 17 or so.
  3. Broken a rib whilst skiing.
  4. Broken the end off my canoe whilst taking a proficiency test ... and passed the test!
  5. Had my first sexual relationship at the age of 29.
  6. Run the New York Marathon. (and the London Marathon twice.)
  7. Upgraded my FireFox to 1.0.1
  8. Morris danced on stage in a church.
  9. Had to tell a partner that I might have passed on a Sexually Transmitted Disease to them.
  10. Morris danced in a Rocky Horror Show costume (underpants, bra, suspenders, stockings and a white lab coat).

I think that will do, quite hard thinking of things.

Peace
peter

I was thinking of saying "You haven't lived." but then I thought about what I know of your life and realised that that was a rediculous remark :) Take care and have a (hug) from me.

Peace

I had my first kiss & first date at 18 followed by my first sexual experience at 19.

I've never broken a Canoe, but I have been in a powered boat attempting to recue a stranded rowboat only to then need the aid of the other powered boat because our boat hit an underwater rock formation that no one knew was there riping off the propeller and causing us to be taken by the current rather quickly towards some sharp and dangerous rocks. (thankfully the other Boat didn't hit the hidden rocks.)

I have dressed as several Rocky Horror Characters but I cant' say I've ever Morris Danced while in character.

I used to crew a rescue boat with my mate on Rutland Water, a big reservoir in central England, and that was quite fun. My mate had a trick he'd do with one of the boats which was powered by a water jet (very usefull when rescuing capsised sailing boars as you didn't have a propeller to cut up the sails). He'd go forward at full power then reverse the direction of the jet so it pointed straight forwards - this caused two fountains of water to shoot up either side of the boat and splash whoever was next to us :)

A video was taken at the time but since the restaurant where this event took place is long gone I believe that the evidence is lost to the world. Probably all for the best actually ;)

Nope... that's only 8. I leave it as an exercise to you to figure out which two of those things I've done!

I guess numbers 7 and 8 ... if that's right 'cos I lose the original post whilst I'm replying, I think those are the two though :)

No, 9 and 10... although 9 turned out to be a false alarm, thank goodness.

...turned out to be a false alarm ...

Yes, so was mine - well a false alarm that I might have passed it on that is, I definitely had it myself - but still didn't do the relationship a whole lot of good (it was a ex girl friend that I still saw some times that I'd caught it from).

I thought I'd be unique with 10! Were there any pics of it? There was a video of us doing it but I think it is long gone ... if it is still anywhere then it will probably be somewhere on the Isle of Wight.

Peace

Sorry, no pictures... that time. Since my oldest has discovered Rocky, I suppose we're in for a whole new generation from which black mail pictures may be made.

I have downloaded the fix for firefox, I am yet to apply it though. It will get done later today, until then I can not share any of your unique things:)

Well you could work your way through some of those on the list ... although there are several I'd not actually recommend anyone deliberately do!
