That Got Me Thinking!
I got 'tagged'! I'm supposed to give six things that are weird about me. This is a huge dilemma in which I find myself! Firstly, as I know little about 'tagging' and 'MeMe', that makes me weird for starters. Narrowing weird things about me down to six only is weird in itself! I have no idea where to begin. It would be easier for others to list what they think is weird about me as I'm sure there are many out there who think I'm very weird! There's not enough room in 'blogger' to list the weird things about me!
What I think is weird about me, perhaps others don't, and vice versa. Is it weird that I've not yet met my knight in shining armour, although I've auditioned quite a few? Or should I rephrase and say some have auditioned? Is it weird I enjoy my own space, company and living alone?
This is what I will do. I will let the "six-would-be-tagged" persons I'm supposed to tag, off the hook (this makes it easier for me. I'm doing myself more of a favour than I am you!) Instead I'm going to list a few of the things people do that annoy me. Perhaps from this following list, you can work out for yourselves my 'weird' quirks.
Things I Find Annoying...(Or Make Me Angry)
People who say they are going to do something then don't follow through
Snobs, whether social or intellectual
People who talk over others...who are more interested in hearing their own voices than listening to another
Bad manners, including bad table manners
Tactless, thoughtless people
Greed...in any form
No sense of humour/of the ridiculous
Abuse of others...mental/emotional and physical
People who say, for reasons known only to themselves, that they never watch television, and yet, can quote verbatim sections from various programmes!
Being taken for granted
Anyone who tries (and/or succeeds) to belittle another
Predators of the human variety
My own impatience with myself annoys me, too...I guess that can be added to the "what's weird about me" list, together with always washing my face with cold water after showering.
I always start at the same end of the supermarket and work my way up and down the aisles finishing at the meat section at the opposite end before hitting the check-out when grocery shopping. I always unload my purchases at the check-out by placing similar items together to make it easier for the check-out girl to pack my goods...e.g...cold goods together, vegetables and fruit together, toiletries, so on and so on.
I hate shopping in large shopping centres! Living up on the mountain is great because shopping up here has a 'village-atmosphere" which I love. I rarely, and then only kicking and screaming, go down to the Gold Coast. If I have the choice, I prefer to head to the small country town of Beaudesert if I need to purchase something that's not available here on the mountain. Friends of mine think this is very weird of me...they love going shopping down the coast and drive down there at least, once a week, sometimes two or three times! Not me! That is not my style at all!
Another thing that is really weird about me is I'm not fond of being out at sea in a boat...yet, when I lived on Newry Island, I drove the island boat and had to row the dinghy out to the mooring every time I needed to use the 21-foot Trojan DeHavilland to go to the mainland to either pick up guests or provisions. It was different being the skipper, even though I'd never driven a boat before I lived on Newry, being in control of the boat, I never became sea sick. I didn't have another option. I lived on the island alone!!! I suppose being a woman, living on the island alone and managing it alone was weird, too. Lots of people would ask me if I was scared/nervous living on the island alone. My answer: "If I was that kind of person, I wouldn't be doing it, would I?"
I love flying in light/small aircraft. I hate Fraser Island!
All of the above is enough information about myself for now and more than enough for you to work on! Count yourself lucky I've not 'tagged' you! That's my Christmas present to you!
