Tag I'm It

  • The lovely and ever-so talented and damn funny Helen has been and gone and tagged me. Because I've got nothing better to do - phnaar. Oh well, in for a penny, in for a million squid...

    The rules are to list 7 random facts/habits about yourself. Then choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names (don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog and they need to write the rules in their answer too). So...7 random facts/habits:

  • I've got a funny thing about textures in food. For example, love cake. Love nuts. But can't stand cake with nuts on/in. Hard bits in a soft cake...bleeeuch. It would be the same if there were peas in my mash or nuts in my ice-cream. Or smoothies with lumps of fruit in (love fruit juce, love fruit...but together they're just wrong). Cack.

  • I like to sleep with the gap between my big toe and the toe next to it (does that toe even HAVE a name?) straddling the back of my ankle on the other foot. Feels safe and secure and comfortable!

  • I'm petrified of butterflies. Evil wing-ed creatures that can FLAP IN YOUR FACE. Banish them, I say.

  • I can't stand cupboard doors being left ajar...makes me twitch. I have to go and shut them in an OCD type manner.

  • I have a habit of leaving the bathroom door open *in a Will Smith voice* when I do my toilet ting, if you know what I mean there. Not at friends' houses...and not if the local minister's over my house on a visit you know...but around my family that door's as wide open as the Mersey Tunnel.

  • I was mortally embarrassed about periods until I was well into my 20s. I couldn't even SAY the word period (even in the context of classes at school for example...I would never say "We've got double French for first period"...ho no!). In my diary I would write PS and PE to mark when my Period Started and Ended (not from a shorthand point of view, but a 'if anyone ever reads this they'll never know that I even have periods how mortally embarrassing would that be' point of view). Now I'm completely the other way and couldn't give a monkey's bottom!

  • My favourite film ever is When Harry Met Sally and I could quote you nearly every line from it. I've watched it more times than I could possibly say.

There you go. A peek into my strange little world. I hereby tag:

Debbie, Gems, Amber, Tina, Anna, Toni, and The Scrapbook Widower

Off to Reading tomorrow for the scrapping seminar. Still talking a LOT about packing kits and have got things in piles on the floor in the living room. But haven't done it yet. Ho hum. Have to, have to. *sigh*

hmm, that toe thing is well weird missy, what would happen if you broke your big toe?!?

Tina said...

LOL at Helen!

Mrs Random will indeed furnish you with some random facts: but first she has to finish playing a guessing game on her Blog.

Helen...I would use the OTHER big toe to straddle the back of the ankle (which ankle would have broken toe on it). Ha!

I can't help but think there are numerous girls and women out there writing ps and pe, thinking that no one would possibly guess what it means :)

Hi, incase you wondered i am a friend of Jim and Ambers. i understand about your period problem, if that sounds right! being male i obviously have a deep seeded hatred of such things. i am registered blind and have talking software on my laptop. the lovely american woman who speaks to me in a soft voice insists on repeating period to me every time instead of saying full-stop. there she goes again......... ewwww.

Claire said...

Julie said...

SmileyCarrie said...

I agree with the cupboards... it drives me INSANE and living with two people who can't even fathom the thought of closing the cupboards EVER - I'm going crazy! hehe
