weird things about me

M, the only person I know who reads my blog without being in my family, posted 5 weird things about herself. You sort of have to be tagged to do things like this, but since I am pretty enough weird I figured I could just go ahead and make a list about me myself.

1. I don't like needles 50% of the time.

To explain; I do not care how often people (doctors or nurses that is) stick me with a needle as long as they do not take any blood. They can inject whatever they feel like and I will barely care. Now, if they try to take my blood on the other hand, that is a different story. Years ago, I saw the movie hot shots and one of the scenes were a blood transfusion between two people. the 'doctor' doing the procedure forgot about it and the man giving blood ended up all deflated. That is the scene I picture in my head every time I have to give up some of my precisions blood.

2. I hate tomatoes but love tomato based pasta sous.


Don't ask me to explain this because I don't know why.

3. I changed a nappy for the first time when I was about 3 1/2 years old.

The lucky 'dummy' was my sister Annette. To this day it still amazes me when I met grown people that do not know how to change a nappy.

4. I know how to stamp a pig

Or a sheep or cow for that matter. Stamping the meat after my dad and his colleges in the meat control had checked it was one of my many holiday jobs. I also worked in a chicken factory, a flower store, folding advertisement, delivering newspapers and of course babysitting.

5. I frequently make up my own words/sentences

'stop tickle my teeth' are one sentence that comes to mind right now. The fact that I do this keep my husband very much amused (and also somewhat confused). Back in Uni he started to write down my 'sayings'. Maybe it will be a book one day.

Oh I'm happy to have inspired you!! I think you are suppose to be tagged but I somethings feel such pressure to do those when I am tagged and I hate writing under pressure so I'm not good about tagging other people. Consider yourself tagged!

And I so understand about that tomatoes thing. I like salsa and pasta sauce but I don't like tomatoes or ketchup. See that could have been one of my weird things!
