Pain And Tag-ravation

Nunhead's finest mum of one tagged Landcroft House recently for 8 facts and we've been on mild panic alert ever since. What could Landcroft House possibly say that is of any interest to anyone? Well, we're no closer to an answer to that (as regular readers will know to their cost), but here we go anyway:

1. One of us once knocked repeatedly on the window of a New York telephone kiosk, desperate to get in and make a call. When the apologetic man skulked out they realised it was Woody Allen.

2. One of us has never been skiing or participated in any winter sport. They says they can't see the point of going on holiday anywhere that's colder or more expensive than where they already are. But both can scuba (doo).

3. The interior of Landcroft House used to be entirely clad in dark, shiny wood. And it had a built-in, mirrored, illuminated cocktail cabinet that one insisted on taking out and the other has not stopped missing.

4. Landcroft House used to be home to three ponds full of giant koi-carp in a garden so ludicrous that one party guest described it as looking like the "back of a Mexican whorehouse".

5. One of us had never been to South London before they met the other one apart from when they saw NWA at Brixton Academy an awfully long time ago.

6. We met Beatle Paul and Heather Mills in a playground in Rye. Beatle Paul pushed Scrap on the roundabout. Heather was nice.

7. One of us has an inherited title that they never use.

8. One of us never drinks in the day - even on holiday - and the other won't drink red wine. Even with meat.

We tag: Woodvale, Pad & Mel, Ebenezer Terrace, Choumert Mews and Franco London...

So, which one "fact" was completely made up?

The one about not drinking during the day!

You can't leave us in suspense like this.....you must let us know who "the one who" is!!!

i'm torn between drinking in the day and the title one... if the title one is true, i hope it's suitably grandiose of course

The one about not drinking during the day even on holiday is a load of porkies
I am an eye witness

Simon said...

Surely the one about Heather Mills being nice has to be the lie?

Valentine Suicide said...

I'm with Simon. Surely Heather can't be nice. It says she isn't in the tabloids and they never lie.

Also, I don't think Paul could push a roundabout with his thumbs stuck up like that.

Are you a Duchess Rob?

Rich said...

Inherited title I'd say.

James Franco said...

I would go with the Inherited title as well.

But the drinking in the day is fairly plausible.

Mel said...

I bloody loved that garden!!

Drunk Mummy said...

I reckon its the first one - the apologetic man in the New York phone kiosk was Superman!

Tony said...

oh no, I've been tagged! What do i need to do??

Silvana said...

Anthony you and all the other tags now need to write on your own blogs 8 'interesting' facts about youself - should be easy for you all! And then nominate another five.

Our made up fact was the one about the inherited title though Rob is a distant relative of Somerset Maugham.

Rob never drinks during the day, except at weddings but then he needs a lie down. I can't go near red wine ever since pregnancy.

Mel - that garden was something special, eh!

Steve Cadman said...

I would have reckoned the McCartney, how cool!

ally. said...

can one of you really think going somewhere cold and skiey is ever a good idea?

Rich said...

"Our made up fact was the one about the inherited title"


Great! What do I win?

Rob said...

"I will send you the *first five cds that the postie puts through our door in the morning"

*Unless they're really good, then you can have the next five...

James Franco said...

I want a prize as well, I got it right!!

Silvana said...

Ok James. What prize do you want?

James Franco said...

I do want a new bike, Antoinette won't let me buy one myself.......

Some dodgy CD's will suffice I suppose.
