I've Been Tagged!

1. Which famous person would you most like to learn you are descended from?

Queen Elizabeth the First. What a powerful woman! She did a lot for England, although I think beheading her half sister, Mary Queen of Scotland was a bit of an overreaction.

2. Which famous person would you hate to learn you're descended from?

Caligula - a megalomaniac of the worst order and as mad as a meat-axe to boot.

3. If you could be an ancestor to any living famous person who would it be and why?

Steve Irwin, do I need to say why?

4. If you could go back in time and meet any known ancestors of yours who would it be and why?

My great grandmother Susan. Through her activities as a guide through the Whakarewarewa thermal area, she met royalty, world leaders, scientists and even movie stars. I would love to listen to her stories about them and also about our family.

5 Weird Things About Me

I see numbers and words in colour. I am relatively psychic and can scare myself as well as others. My sense of humour can sometimes be so off the wall, it takes another nutter like me to appreciate it. I'm quite often "off with the fairies", especially at work where I can still do my job without even thinking about what I'm doing, but instead having a wonderful time inside my head! I can have the most wonderful conversations with myself.

Thanks, Tammy, that was fun. I hope I haven't put anybody off!!

That was very brave of you..... some would say.... but not I! We are very similar I think. I would have to agree with wanting to be related to Steve... would'nt that be awesomely inspiring. Mum is thinking about purchasing some land just so no-one can build on it... I love it. Much love, Nic xox.

This is a very interesting Meme. I think your great grandma must have been fascinating. Too bad she didn't write a book about her adventures.
