A meme brought to me and you by Naomi of Straight into bed cake free and dried and Stephanie at Cupcake, my love. Naomi tagged me for 7 random things and Stephanie for 5 fun facts.
I took the liberty of combining the two, for fear that I can't come up with 12 curiosities that you would like to know about me...
that's a whole lot of numbers up there, and I know for a fact that numbers aren't my thing at all. If there was something like "dyscalculia" when I was the age of my children I'm sure someone had diagnosed me as a minor case. As a matter of fact, when I was talking to one of my neighbours a couple of years ago and I failed to point in the right direction (not knowing left from right) he asked me if I could read my watch right.
I laughed and said well ...eh .. no, my watches always need to have numbers or at least pointers on the dial. He furthermore questioned me about my ability to do math.... which is near to none. He said: well, that figures. Those things are connected. And left me standing speechless.
He was/is a practising psychiatrist.....
Three kids and no career. Fun fact. Especially when people used to think it would be the other way round for me. I remember once dutifully oohing and aahing when a co-workers showed her newborn baby and walking back to my office one of my other co-workers said to me: you really don't like children do you? Well I think I do like children, just not all children. Or maybe I just learned how to over the years.
Ever waltzed into a wedding reception, chin up, head high with your skirt tucked in your panty hose?
Yup, been there, done that.
I'm a creature of habit.
Never been able to do things twice in the same way. No traditions in this house that I can think off. Only habit I am a creature of is smoking. Yuck! Wish I could get rid of that one! Although I am fairly happy that I was able not to recreate nr. 3.
Scents take me back in time. My memory of things past is not great but smelling something can transport me back and show me a mind picture of when, where, and what.
I have a very large head. Or a big mass of hair. Whichever you choose. (I prefer the latter or maybe it's both which is even worse I guess). Fact is that I can almost never find hats that are big enough to wear comfortably. It's a good thing I wasn't born when women were supposed to wear hats at all times.
Yes, that's me. Red jacket, big head, lots of hair.
when re-reading the introduction I noticed that I stated that the 7 random and 5 fun combined were 13.. need I say more?
- Lien, I don't know if you've ever done this one, but you're on girl!
- Marli, here's one for you as well! (Nieuw blog, nieuwe ronde?)
- Kansas, I've been reading you for a while now and love it, in for a meme?
- Jes, care to join the 7 or 5?
- New to me blogger, Kickin' up Dough, play along?
For the rules to these memes I gladly refer you to the two ladies on top of this page. It's about how to play, what to do, who to tag...
