First Tags of 2007

While dealing with Mr Headache, I decided to plough through my usual reading material of your blogs out there. Busy lot that you are ;) Looks like everyone had a pretty good new years, aside from a certain Irishman not liking New Year, or the celebrations in Scotland being cancelled.

While working on a fix for this headache that doesn't involve a doctors appointment, we're working on the "dehydrated" theory. See, if I don't drink much, I get awful headaches and suchlike, so I'm not eating much today, taking rehydration stuff (Dirolyte, for those that don't know, is foul) and drinking plenty of water. No tea or coffee, and caffeine also dehydrates you. So anyway...

I've been tagged already, once by Christine, and once by, erm, someone else. Emma and Deb I think it came from. But still, two tags, one post. Feel free to be tagged and get on with it!

Alan said...

Are we allow to probe as to why you were arrested Dan? Skinny dipping again?

Emma said...

i thought i got that one from you??? where did it come from then?

Emma said...

ooooh i just read what you wrote about the 'pearls' and having known you as long as I have, I know very well that wouldn't shock you - the innocent act doesnt wash with me Mr English!
xxx

Dan said...

I am easily shocked and offended I'll have you know ;)

And no, never been arrested for skinny dipping...

Jo said...

He was arrested for something *really really* illegal, mafia stuff, quite scary actually...

OR, he rode his bike through town while trying to get home to pregnant me having a scare - While the police stopped him, 4 kids went shooting past on their bikes...

Nancy said...

So Dam was involved in the mafia? That explains the shooting... (although our drive-by shootings usually happen in cars - not bikes!) ;-) hehe...

Jo, I had to read that second part twice ... the first time I read it I really thought that 4 kids were shooting guns in Dan's general direction. I guess you can tell I've lived in the good 'ol USA a long time, huh?
