Tag, I’m It

Thank you Laura for tagging me, you’ve given an old greying woman purpose and something to blog about. I wrote this LAST Sunday. How sad am I? On second thoughts, don’t answer that…

A) Each player answers the questions about themselves.

B) At the end of the post, the player then tags 2 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

10 years ago:
I was 23 and had just returned to Scotland from a 18-month stint in Pennsylvania
I laughed at my family for 3 days because they “talked funny” ( I hadn’t lost my accent though)
I got a job at RBS
I dated my ex-boyfriend, again
My brother had just started high school (age 11)
My other brother became a father

5 Things that were on my “to-do” list for today:
Go to church
Take a nap
Cook a pork tenderloin
Keep the house tidy
Talk smack

I Enjoy:
Road trips and travelling
Meeting new people
Reading (I love thesauruses and dictionaries too)
Teaching myself things and trying new recipes
Laughing with my children (or Kathy Griffin)
Shopping and getting bargains

What would I do if I suddenly became a MILLIONAIRE?:
Make a list. I mean — come on, I still haven’t spent my $112.06 on my amazon account. How much hope would I have with $MIL+. Although, I have to say, I’d rather have £1,000,000.

5 Jobs that I have had:
Nelson Laboratories, Inc.
The Royal Bank of Scotland Mortgage Centre
IBM Call Centre
Clinton Cards
WH Smith

5 Things People Don’t know about me
Despite years of futile practice, I can’t armpit fart or whistle with my fingers
I’ve been to a plastic surgeon
I hate camping, but do it anyway (my idea of roughing it is Motel 6)
Gas stations and the unfinished underside rim of a plate both give me the heebies
I’ve never golfed

Tagged: The Grand View and Suburban Scrawl

Just two? *heaving teenager-esque sigh* Play along if you like, I’m nosy like that.

  1. Thanks for the tag; I’ll get to it either later today or tomorrow morning!

    Gotta go get ready to teach my 2nd graders at Religious School! (Shoot, that could have been one of my “Things”…oh well.)

  2. Thesauri and dictionaries? I love you! Me too!
    And I want to know how you made those little checkmarks.

    I’d much rather have the million in pounds…but still live here. I’d already come out what? 400,00 ahead now? I also hate camping, but I won’t do it. You have 112 at Amazon? Stimulate the economy…go spend it.

  4. I’m impressed that you’ve spent years trying to learn how to armpit fart.

  5. i can’t stand camping and the man who will love me for the rest of my life will have to prove that fact by never asking me to play along. better you than me! Talk smack was not on your list!! lolol. who wouldn’t rather have a million pounds??

  6. Plastic Surgery huh? Should we let you off the hook that easily? 😉

  7. Having foisted the game on the rest of the world (cruel joke that THAT was) it doesn’t surprise me in the least that a Scots person would not play golf.

    But I love you anyway.

  8. I’m with ya on the love reading thing… I used to read encyclopaedias and I always have a book with me.

  9. TGV: Aye, in 2004 I went to a plastic surgeon to have a small (benign) cyst removed from my face. Its placement was such that he had to remove it and not the dermatologist.

    I was wondering who would take my bait…lol.

  10. It’s done (though a bit boring…)!
    Come and visit!

  11. You call yourself a Scot and you’ve never golfed!?! (Just kidding. :))

    It was fun getting to know you better!

  12. I’ve never golfed either. And I don’t really care too.
    And yes, I’d rather have that in pounds as well. 😉

  13. Those unfinished plate bottoms should be outlawed. Just the thought of it makes my skin crawl.

  14. i have never, ever,not once in my entire life…been able to armpit fart…or whistle while blowing outward…i have to inhale my breath to whistle!
    fun meme!!

  15. Well done! we have so much in common 🙂 I can’t armpit fart or finger whistle for the life of me either 😦 And yes, Motel 6, if a night’s stay isn’t a dangerous adventure, I’m not sure what is!

  16. Never could finger whistle or snap with my fingers 🙂

    I want to know how you did the check thingys too 🙂

    Shopping and getting bargains – yes, so do I 😉
