Somewhere between asking you all to tell me where to go, and my little pity party over shoulder pain, I was tagged by the unquenchably hilarious TX Poppet at Canned Laughter, to do the Six Things Meme. She would like me to share with you six inconsequential habits, quirks, or things about me that you wouldn’t otherwise know. So, aided and abbetted by pain pills and muscle relaxants, I will be interested in reading tomorrow what I tell you tonight….
But first, the rules:
- Link to the person that tagged you
- Post the rules on your blog
- Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
- Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
- Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website
#1. I am a Trekkie. Not a Trekker as the large organized group likes to call themselves. I am more of a loner and actually a purist, because I really only like the original series, oh, and William Shatner. I once found myself standing next to him in a crowd and when I noticed who it was that I was next to, I screamed and ran away.
#2. I abhor being called a ‘Gal.’ I can understand and tolerate ‘chick’ ‘dame’ ‘lady’ ‘girl’ or any other generic group name for females, flattering or unflattering – just not gal. Probably stems from my years as a secretary and that nameless, faceless steno-pool connotation.
#3. I am a grammar and spelling snob. If you misspell or mispronounce something, or don’t know the difference between their, they’re, and there, I will judge you. The two funniest instances of word butchering came from the same woman I worked for, who, while presenting a class on customer service, referred to something as the “last Sebastian of defense” and warned another class not to let something be their “escape goat.”
#4. I absolutely believe in Fate, and Psychics, and Ghosts, and Fortune Tellers.
#5. I love it when our friends, or our kids’ friends walk into our house without knocking, but I cannot bring myself to do that – even with my closest friends or family.
#6. When I clean house, I have to work in a clockwise direction.
