I have  my appointment for a dental checkup today. Oh dread...It's been over a year since he referred me to the dental hospital to try and save my extra-bad tooth. (I haven't heard from them since they said I'd have to wait nine months.)  Oh Lordy, I gots The Fear...I hate my dentist, too. He always says I don't look well, and stuff like that, and he's really smarmy and rich-looking. Still, I'm very fortunate to have an NHS dentist these days, so there ya go..
Watched ARENA about Pete Doherty last night, trying to figure out his appeal. Couldn't understand  much of what he said, though. He always looks like a prat to me, but the young folks sure seem to reckon him. Guess old farts like me aren't supposed to understand...

Oh, This Is So Unfair...

RULES: Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names.

I can't think of anything very interesting, but:

1. I used to show off by biting my toenails as a kid.
2. I have been a (very weedy and inefficient-) squatter.
3. My confirmation name is 'Judith' because I prayed to St Jude,patron of lost causes toi save from going blind when I had conjunctivitis!
4. I first got drunk, deliberately, to see what it felt like, at a neighbour's wedding, where I downed four 'orange blossoms' and staggered about  gurning until my mother dragged me home in mortification. I was about 12.
5. When I was a student, I used to shoplift clothes fairly often. It gave me a buzz, and I was too poor to ever buy stuff. I never got caught.  (I am a no good baddie-)
6. I saw a ghost , I think, in the old Berman's & Nathan's costume store at Camden Town, when I  worked there. 
7. I had to re-take geometry twice. I never did pass.
8.I went to Confession in Notre Dame de Paris just for the experience, although I hadn't been a practising Catholic for many years. That's sacrilege, that is.
9. I sometimes stop in the street to talk to animals.
10. I like picking scabs, although I am overcome with self-disgust at the thought. I do not ,however, enjoy zit-popping.

My chosen victims are

All of whom are probably <i>far</i>  too sensible to be bothered.
