ten things meme [Feb. 25th, 2005|08:13 pm]

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.

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 :)
