AArrggh, I've been blog-tagged by Emma at Snowbooks - the boss! When I told Dave, he said "It sounds most uncomfortable."

OK, this is what you have to do when you've been tagged... - Link to the person that tagged you (in my case Emma). - Post the rules on your blog. - Write six random things about you in a blog post. - Tag six people in your post. - Let each person know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. - Let the tagger know your entry is up.

The trouble is that I only read five blogs and the Snowblog is one of them. But I'll do my best. Six random things about me:

1/ When I was little I wanted to be a ballet dancer, but we didn't have enough money for me to go to ballet class. When I got to the age of 12 and realised that even if I found the money, it was too late to start a career in ballet, I decided to become an actress, and I wrote to Junior RADA for a prospectus. There was still no money, of course, and I ended up going to university on a grant (oh those heady days before the need for student loans!) and I became a psychologist.

2/ Just like Sally Howe (of Plotting for Beginners fame) I used to be addicted to watching Neighbours, but I can't watch it any more because it switched to Channel 5 in February and we can't get Channel 5. I am still suffering withdrawal symptoms.

3/ I once did a correspondence course with the Faculty of Astrological Studies.

4/ My first book (of which I was co-author) was published in 1981: The Experience of Work: A Compendium and Review of 249 Measures and Their Use (Organizational and Occupational Psychology). The book is deadly dull. Is it any wonder I turned to comedy and wrote Plotting for Beginners with Jane?

5/ I dream of having one of my books made into a film, with Nora Ephron writing the screenplay and directing it. I'd prefer it not to be the book mentioned in number 4.

6/ I am a practising Quaker. (I have to practice because I'm not very good at it.)

These are the blogs I tag

Dear Sue, I have my post up. I do not know why, but I thought your blog was sort of over. Yikes you have a really good blog. You spend an incredible amount of time writing. It is nice to catch up on Pippa and Richard. I love your pictures. I look forward to the book. Sally
