Tell us something about YOU that has nothing to do

I think the idea is not to post stuff when you are up early and still on your first coffee.......I typed Pam instead of Linda.

I love my old turntable Linda, I bought it in 1979

hmmm..

I'm involved with Tobbacco Control; I'm a member of Health Canada's YAC( youth action comittee) and a member of the ministers advisory council.

I'm on my highschool Improv team..improve should be concidered a contact sport.

Along wiht improv I'm involved with music and drama.

I'm involved with the Youth action comittee in School. We do all sorts of things,but I really enjoy teaming up with Unicef and Oxfam for events.

I'm obsessed with land Hermit crabs. As of today I'm the proud mother of ten hermit crabs. 6 carribean 2 rugs, and 2 ecuadorians. They make great pets and as much as I love Izzy the family cat..the hermits don't cause my allergies to act up.

I should warn you all now..at every oppertunity I mention my babies. You'll be sick of them by the end of the year.

Coins in the BBQ yep about $1.00 I believe but they go for ages-crappy hotplates though and always really greasy YUK. Can't beat the home barbie.

Cat my turntable is broken which is totally devasting, all those vinyls so many tunes-I think I need a new needle as well-maybe cash converters???? Pity I can't burn them onto CD's they are so warped-AAAaaahhhh the days when I was a mobile DJ now that's spooky!

Mel, you can still get Turntables Richer Sounds in the UK are quite good but I'm sure you have something similar in Oz (Dick Smith's or Power Barn??). Much prefer CD's myself and sold all my old scratchy vinyl years ago, not that I had that many. When you do get your new turntable it might be worth backing up all your old records as they sound as though they're on their last legs :P

Hey Mel,

JB HiFi have needles. I saw them on a wall behind the counter at the one in Brighton. I guess they have them in other stores too.

So what can I tell you that will grab al your attentions and make you go WOW!....absolutely nothing, so I'll have to stick to the boring stuff.

I love swimming and weight training. I enjoy watching all sports and I'm a massive soccer fan and my team is Burnley, which was my home town.

I live in the South West now, Somerset (Taunton), but haven't made it totally to being a surfer dude.

I'm hoping to start trying more and more sports......I tried scuba diving a couple of years ago and that was brill.

I love cokking and my firends and family tell me I'm really good, but not plucked up the guts to enter any competitions. I would love to own my own restaurant.

For work I'm a trainer in learning together with being a project manager and learning consultant. I'm especially interested in e-learning and e communication.

Not much more to say, I said I was pretty boring! but I try !

Ok, I use to scuba alot and underwater photography. My latest interest is getting my Jeep fixed to go do some off-roading. :D I'm also a do-it-yourself type. I have gotten back into plastic model building. I like to go target shooting, have a small arsenal at home. ;) Of course drinking beer and wine. :P And I love to cook. I also like to go with my wife and go antique shopping. Interesting to see all the things I threw away be worth so much money today. :blink: :P Guess thats about it. :)

This is such a good topic. Sometimes people try and define you by your disability like saying "Leanne, you know her, the one with the artifical leg....." but there is more to me than that......just having trouble thinking of what exciting things to put.........

* I used to swim for my county (local area) as a child. Havent swam in years now due to the fact that I feel too self concious but I would love to get back into it.

* I love ALL kinds of music, and dancing

* My fav place to go on holiday is the USA - feel like I am home when I am there, and never want to leave! Maybe I should go travelling round the states....humm somthing to think of....

*When I was 8 yrs old my little brother threw me down the stairs and broke my arm in 2 places. I was in plaster for almost 3 months and had to have a few operations to put it right - what a lovely brother he is!

Thats all folks :)

Hello everyone

My thing is my family tree. I started it a year back and its kind of my little obsession (well probably not an obsession, more a keen interest!). I had an email from someone on my mums side taking it back it 1715 so not doing too bad.

I enjoy going out with my friends (even though I am a little less stable after a few halves than the others!)

I like watching films at home with a bottle of wine (i am not an alcoholic I share the wine!)

Going to the gym

Going shopping who doesnt!

Reading (i go through fits with this)

Going on holiday-dont get enough.

Keeping track of my friends from uni and planning our 'reunions'

2 Cats Whitney and Emily. I am in the process of trying to adopt a Parrot named Quinn.

I would have a house full if the b/f would allow.

I obessesivly collect books.... mostly history books...true facts/crime....I love old books.... yards sales are the best spot. This also drives the boyfriend crazy...lol I LOVE TO ENTERTAIN..... Having friends over for dinner....play a game... have a bbq .... I like to experiment and creat new drinks... or find something my friends haven't had yet.... thus giving me a reason to have a party.... Boyfriend doesn't mind this...lol :P

But my all time fav thing would be my nephew... I don't have kids yet.... so I spoil him like he was my own.... Well I am the fav aunt...so I would SPOIL him anyway.

He is such a little stud.... he's not quite 2.... clever little bugger....he's such a flirt with the girls when we go out...it's sooooo cute.

And do you make the walrus noise too? Where's the camcorder?

No walrus noises. . .sorry. . .

I just sing really loud and off-key :)

I'll top you. I sing loud, off key rap music. Or is that redundant? OK I really sing Barry Manilow! Oh Mandy you came and you gave.....
