another six things

Posted on: January 23, 2009

Knitter Sue tagged me to do a meme, and it always tickles me to be tagged (I feel like one of the cool kids!) so even though I have done this before I think, I will do it again!

Here are the rules:
Link to the person who tagged you.
Mention the rules.
Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.
Tag six other bloggers by linking to them.
Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that let’s them know they’ve been tagged.

1. People at work sometimes think I am scary. This is because I manage to pretend I am confident and always on top of things. On the inside I am usually full of doubt and nerves, but apparently this doesn’t show. What this means is that people ask me lots of questions and I have to make lots of decisions. I don’t like making decisions.
2. My daughter works at the same McDonalds that I worked at when I was pregnant with her!
3. I got a new tattoo last week and it is visible to the world. Since then I have noticed people looking at me. I figure it is their problem. I like it. It is also an antidote to the feelings I describe in the first response! I have to be better at just being me!
4. At the moment, I am responding to a meme, knitting, playing Lexulous on Facebook with the Spunk who is sitting behind me on the laptop, listening to my kids laugh and giggle, paying slight attention to the tennis and having a glass of wine. Multitasking is my favourite pastime.
5. Fights make me almost pass out. This can be a problem working in a school with 400 odd teenage boys. I have broken up lots of fights with my ability to scream STOP STOP STOP at great volume.
6. I think that at least some of my success and ambition comes from wanting to prove people wrong. I was only 18 when Little Purl was born and should call in and thank the teachers who told me I was not fit to be a mother. That’s how far I will go to defy authority!!

Now, who to tag?
Katt, MrsDrWho, LargMarj, Cathie, jess,chocolate,knitting and anybody else who would like to participate!

Now that’s going a long way!!

Don’t you just love some of the negative stuff heaped on students by teachers? Not that we would ever… LOL

I am with you on proving people wrong and doing things my own way.

^ things – OK I am thinking.

I love the cascade in your previous post.
I have some Agate I am thinking of making a vest with. What are you planning for yours?

Thanks for joining in with the meme. It must have been very hard for you to be such a young mother. My mum was 17 when she had me and I think if she hadnt of had my dad’s family to help her out she would have struggled a lot. You dont look old enough to have a daughter that age either.

Oh I love #5, having an excellent voice can really help in those situations!! Apparently Obama has a very commanding speech pattern, ending sentences on a downward tone. I think teachers do that too, no interrogatives, just commanding tones!!
#2 Life is just a circle.
#3 Can’t wait to view it!!

Hello!! Yes I agree its cool to be tagged,THanks for putting me down,lol
Istarted my effort will finish later,the kids are getting boisterous and Hubbys working on getting the gauze door fixed and I have to guard the dog and bunny so Tilly doesnt have Brunch!!

Thanks for the tag…I’m thinking! Not a holiday passtime!

Now that’s some of the better meme answers I’ve seen yet. 😉

I simply cannot believe that you didn’t post any pics of the tat!

that McDonalds one is freaky! How time must seem like it’s flown!

What’s your tattoo a picture of?

I can has tattoo pic?

Pity Purl turned out to be such a disappointment! (ha! In your face, teachers!)

You have to tell me where you got the Ilove billy jeans from

I love the shoes – maybe the jeans will suddenly make me look like a size 12 – especially with added buttlifter!

I love your site!

Experiencing a slow PC recently? Fix it now!

Hi Amanda,lovely to hear from you!!Still havent done that meme,LOL Yes we enjoyed our we trip,want to do it again for sanity,
I ve been asked to demonstrate at a couple of Shows this year and hopefully if money allows it ll be a way of seeing a bit of country too. The economy is scaring us with work etc!!!

Missing you! Hope everything is going well.
