With Nothing To Give, How Can We Ask For More

Faith has entangled me in the current meme...
8 random facts about me.

1. Shroom got his name at Reading Festival 1992
2. He has at least one other nickname, the origins of which no-one can recall
3. I drink faster than I get drunk, always to my own detriment
4. I secretly quite like Dire Straits
5. My favourite cocktail is a whisky sour
6. I spend hours formulating grand plans, then procrastinate about doing them until it's too late
7. I once cried watching an episode of Magnum, P.I.
8. I quite fancy the idea of sporting a huge 'tache, but am utterly incapable of growing one...

Random enough? I'm not sure.
I know I'm supposed to tag another 8 people, but for the now, I'm going to be a killjoy.

Boo!

Ok, so what's your other nickname, then? Spill the beans! Is it 'mush?'

Oh god, that was bad...

Oh, I quite like #7. You sentimental little sweetie, you! I'm trying to think of some kind of schlock that's made me tear up but I can't think of anything immediately. I'm sure there's been something in my past but...well, sometimes the odd movie might get me going but that's different. I'm trying to shoot for something really out of context.

A response on my blog actually made me cry the other day. Oh, I found it so touching...but that's not schlock...

Hmmm... yes; I seem to have subverted my emotions - to enable me to be Dr Untouchable at work - to such anextent that they revenge themselves upon me at inapt moments. Mind you, it was an emotional episode

My other nickname is not mush! But thanks...

OHHHH, and I thought Shroom was a nod to the idea that we (in the medical profession )are all kept in the dark and fed shit? That's all an illusion then.

DD- There's that too, but Shroom was born before I really knew that; works either way, really...
