Nasty habits and hairy knuckles

Posted on Thursday, July 5, 2007 in Little known facts, memememememe, Strange and Unusual

It’s like being back at school, this blogging business.  Sixty just passed me a note.  I’ll have to scribble this quickly before the teacher sees me.  Then I have to figure out exactly what are the differences between tagging and memeing. 

Here are 8 random facts about yours truly:

1. I’ve always wanted to be a pilot

2. If I won a stash of money and got to buy a swish car, it would be a souped-up mini cooper.

3. Clowns scare the bejeezus out of me.

4. Every time I see a magpie, I have to wave at it with my left hand. (Tradition, not superstition.)

5. I sing They Might Be Giant’s ‘Birdhouse in your Soul’ when I’m in the shower.  Nobody else seems to know this song!

6. I have nasty habit of leaving disposable contact lenses in for weeks at a time.

7. I am a very hairy girl.  I even have to wax my fingers.

8. My index toe is longer than my big toe.  Apparently that’s a Greek thing.

All right fockers!  It’s your turn…

Baino!! (my virtual drinking buddy)

Bertie’s Third Nipple (A truly mad fecker)

Me Aul’ Lad

Daz (Whiter than white in his new uniform)

Stupid Irish Daddy (When he gets back from his holliers)

Brian F (A teddybear with a dirty great big gun)

Me Mammy

Kate (She and I have a LOT in common)

I was considering mememeing Grannymar too, but I know she really HATES these things, and she’s feeling a little bit poorly at the moment.  So go on over there and give her a big virtual hug.

    You wouldn’t send one to Grannymar because she hates them, but you’d send one to me!!!!

    At least you managed to get Herself off her backside, which is something.

    Oh! And describing Brianf as “A teddybear with a dirty great big gun” is priceless!!! I couldn’t have put it better myself.

    :)

  6. Grannymar says:

    Thanks K8 glad you left me out.

  7. Brianf says:

    I happen to keep my firearms very clean, thank you!

  8. K8 says:

    Bertie’s nipple, I can’t imagine dancing to B in your S at a disco! How mental is that? Have you ever tried celery dipped in chilli sauce? Totally confuses the senses. What did YOU say to Ronnie to make him tell you to f*ck off?!?! Dying to know…

    Sixty I’m always eager for inspirblogtion.

    Brian, I don’t need to know about your hygiene habits! I used to think of you as a Bruce Willis sort of bloke. Now I’m picturing a big hairy fella polishing his tool.

    Da, you’re welcome sure, you earned it.

  9. I was going to tag Granddad, but I knew he’d be pissy

  10. Kate says:

    Sigh, okay, I’ll think. Tomorrow. Can’t think before then.

    But, Birdhouse in Your Soul? No one knows that song? Pshaw. My kids loooooove it. I’ve fooooooorced them to. Because I’m meeeeeeeean that way.

  11. Kate says:

    Ah, never mind, I’ve never been good at just going to bed when I should. It’s up now. Or will be as soon as I can decide who to tag.

  12. you’re terrified of clowns and your mammy loves them and wanted to be one hmmmm……

  13. b3n says:

    Celery, I hate the look, that taste, the feel everything about it. It IS the Devil’s POO!!

    Ronnie was a friend of the family and when I was a young ‘un he was at a family party. When he came, I was running around him going ‘Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie!!!’ and he eventually went, ‘Ahh go on now young ******, fuck off!’

  14. Jonny says:

    Don’t take this the wrong way but does anyone know a hairy woman and proud of it?
    A brand new prime time TV needs you!!! Jonny 0207 502 5654

  15. K8 says:

    Hi Jonny!

    I’m proudish of the fact that I’m hairy… it keeps one warm in the wintertime ;)

    I’m gonna pass on the TV opp, though. Reason being is that I’m in Ireland, despite what my flag thinks, and I don’t have TV so I’m a bit out of sync with that sorta thing.

    Bummer. But thanks anyway!

  16. […] over at Better Living Through Chemistry who didn’t know that I’d done this meme before (Nasty habits and hairy knuckles), so I’m going to take the liberty of changing the meme a little […]
