Six Weird Things About Me

Just when I was getting to regret saying I never got tagged for anything! Esther got me...

People who get tagged need to write a blog entry of their own 6 weird things as well as stating this rule clearly! Three people need to be tagged and their names listed. Finally a comment needs to be left on each tagged person's blog...

Six weird things... errrm, tricky. How about this:

1. I wear a mantilla. (OK, strictly speaking it's unusual rather than weird! Humour me!)

2. I don't eat vegetables. (Never. Even as a little girl. Potatoes don't count, especially chipped and/or deep fried.)

3. I'm blonde, but I adore blonde jokes.

4. I'm almost pathological in my loathing of "inclusive" language. If I remember the words, I sing the un-PC versions of hymns in church... Loudly.

5. When I had an operation to rebuild the top of my tibia and fix my knee, I was chatted up by an anaesthetist... (while on the operating table... during the operation... very long story!)

6. I am convinced that my Guardian Angel is white-haired, and on valium-and-vodka cocktails with the strain of looking after me... Look at some of the stuff I've done: road-traffic accident when 16 (broke tibia, fibula, pelvis, scapula, unconscious for a week, transfusion of six units of blood and developed a pulmonary embolism), hospitalised for severe blood loss at 18 (transfusion of 7 units of blood), I walked into the middle of a murder (as it was happening... not an experience I'd recommend), my car was smashed into by articulated lorry (on motorway, car spun across three lanes and overturned) and finally, this year started with a rear wheel-bearing on my car collapsing while I was driving down the motorway...

See... I'm not really that weird after all !

I tag Northern Cleric, Stephen and Newhousenewjob...

What an interesting post! I have never known a person who doesn't eat veggies. I love them. I could give up eat but I couldn't give up vegetables :-)
All this time I thought you were a brunette. ha ha.

Motherhood has some funny side-effects... my "baby" sister has just had her own baby... and suddenly (after years of silence) she starts lecturing me on eating vegetables...

Did you break your scapula or your scapular--or both? Just wondering! Wow! I think your guardian angel is showing off! God Bless!

I'm with you on No 6.

Marita said...

Sorry, I meant No 2.

Marita said...

Sorry, did I say No 2 - I meant No 4 - I'll get it right in a minute!!!

Goodness gracious,I've been tagged! I suppose there has to be a first time for everything - well, most things. I'll get off my six weirdities later this evening. In the meantime Mac, may I please ask that you keep out of motor cars? You and they really don't seem to combine well. Incidentally, I have added your white-haired Guardian Angel to my prayer list. He can do with all the help he can get.

Mac McLernon said...

LOL pbxvi, I've corrected my spelling mistake!!

PBXVI said...

Good! I was going to suggest getting a better made scapular...

Mac McLernon said...

...oh, and thanks for the advice, Stephen (and I'm sure my guardian angel is grateful for the prayers)
