I've recently been tagged twice [or twice tagged] firstly by the infamous Rowdy Theologian of The JtH Trivia Challenge and, secondly, by that loveable scamp Timt...
And the first one is....
1. Go into your archives.
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Post the fifth sentence (or closest to it).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag five other people to do the same thing
The plan is Europe, of course, to ogle and to culture and grow.
I do apologise for how pretentiously lame this is...okay, I don't care that much. I do, however, care enough to return the taggy little favour.
So I nominate:
4. Up the Beach
And the second....
10 Years Ago: I was bludging. I'd just finished high-school. I was doing nothing but occasionally prodding at my newly acquired nose piercing [ouch].
Five Years Ago: I'd recently returned to uni and had moved back to Sydney - actually, I did it the other way around but it was a weird year anyway. The real difference is that this time I finished the degree.
One Year Ago: I was doing field work for what shall be my seminal work in really, really fucking people off. Alas, I'd chosen to do my research from the wrong end and was at an 'I hate myself and want them to die' kind of place...I've stopped hating myself quite so much...
