A meme (my second blog of the day - happy reading;-)

I feel all warm and fuzzy after being tagged by Ruby and KaB! Thank you gals :-)

So here we go... I must say it was harder than I thought it would be. I am grateful the meme is just to list SEVEN Weird and Wonderful things about myself.

Well here we go...

7 Weird and Wonderful things about The Blonde Blogshell:

1.) I like even numbers. I like to park in parking bays with even numbers, like 32, 34, 36 etc… and I love the number 4. When I was a teen getting up for school, I would watch my alarm clock next my bed. If it read 06:03 or 06:05, I would wait for the minute to become an even number, like 06:04 or 06:06. I’m not overly compulsive with it, I mean if there are no parking bays with even numbers, I’m not going to fall apart -hahaha. It is a little game I play. Yes. I am strange.

2.) I’m very passionate about my job! My career is something I worked very hard for and I love it! I’m also in the public eye and it’s nice to be anonymous with my blogging. It gives me an opportunity to write and express myself without being judged harshly (not that I think you would…oh dear…I better stop before I dig a bigger hole.)

3.) I hate people cracking their knuckles. Give me nails on a chalk board anyday.

4.) I had a beautiful little Golden Labrador puppy who got sick with Parvo Virus. I had to make the most horrific decision. Do I put her to sleep or do everything I can to treat the horrific disease that needs to be treated with bloody expensive antibiotics? I am a HUGE animal lover…animals are like my children! I decided to save her. I did, R13 500 later. She came back to me but I slowly started realizing that she was uber intelligent and with my life style I couldn’t give her enough attention. The attention I gave just wasn’t enough stimulation. It was the second hardest decision I had to make with her. I decided to see if The South African Guide Dogs Association would accept her. They did and she is now being trained as a Guide Dog - I feel like a proud mama. It was incredibly bitter sweet for me though. I now know there was a reason I had to save her…so she could save someone else.

5.) No one is allowed to touch my belly button. No one! It makes my blood curdle and my eyes water.

6.) I am a closet singer…I’m quite good too. If I wasn’t doing what I was doing, I’d be a singer…in America. Bring on the Grammy’s! Hahaha –just teasing.

7.) I hate water. I don’t like the taste of it. I know!!! I know it’s important for weight loss, clearing out all bodily toxins blah blah blah! I’ve also tried the lemon thing, putting a strawberry in etc…I’ve tried all the tricks of the trade. I. do. Not. Like. Water.

Well there we go. As meme's go, I need to tag people.

Why?! Why would you tag me?!?!?!

Don't you notice that I never really talk about *myself*! Humph.

Suppose I'd better do it ...

I'm so with you there on the water thing !! I honestly hate the taste of the stuff and after a few sips I just want to hurl cause I feel like I have something stuck in the back of my throat. So I have comprimised with the world and drink sparkling water instead to keep hydrated.

Phantom Hater said...

It's always fun to read these, since it makes you realize how truly weird other people are. These are some of the more normal ones I've seen on these memes.

You hate the taste of water? wtf?

The belly button thing makes me laugh. I had a gf who had the same issue, so of course I had to always touch her belly button. I think some people just have more sensitive buttons. I have a spot on my lower stomach that I can't stand to be touched on because it's unbelievably ticklish.

KaB said... too re: belly button...don't even go there!

As for your dog...I think that it's comendable what you did...hurrah for you! I love people like you!

Who are you anyway...go on...give us a clue?!?

Champagne Heathen said...

Your command is my bidding. Done. Happy Valentine's Day!

Ruby said...

hmmm...i love sparkling water, but have to force myself to drink the normal stuff:( as for the bellybutton...i'm like that about my ears! can't stand anybody coming close to them, i freak out completely!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Phantom hater (wicked name) thanks for popping by! I'm glad to see I'm slightly normal! Phew! Yes, it's true...ever since my man found out how much I HATE him touching my belly button he tries to wrestle me to the ground to poke it and I want to die! hahhaha!!
It's true...H2O and I don't do well together x

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Kab...the belly button thing is weird isn't it? Glad I'm not alone!

1. You're not the only one; I far prefer even numbers too
2. I wish I could say the same... You're very, very lucky.
3. So f*cking true!

Sorry to hear about your dog ... Oddly enough I've only recently heard about this Parvo disease on another blog (you'll have to scroll down a way), The Daily Coyote. She takes the most amazing photos!

My little Pickle Puppy had Biliary a few years back but luckily it was caught in time and she only had to spend 3 nights in the Doggie Hospital. It's so emotionally exhausting. I still miss her now that I live up in Jhb ... my Mom sends regular Photos :)
