As many of you are aware, there is a game of cyber tag going on at the moment. And it seems that every third person on the Internet is ‘it’. I was caught by: This DVM’s Wife’s Life (and oh yes – you did start it!) and Ethereal Chaos. Quirkily enough, the meme going round is one about… quirks. So, considering the name of my blog, I can’t really refuse to join in now – can I?
Mmm.. have I got any quirks? Well, I’ll let you be the judge of that!
– I fly into a panic every time I lose my keys, and unfortunately, this happens nearly every day. I also demand that everyone else in the family goes into a panic until I find them again. (It’s quite exhausting, I tell you!)
– I can also work myself up into a real tiz when there is a problem with the Internet connection or the e-mail isn’t working. Every time there is an IT breakdown, I have a nervous meltdown.
– I use baby talk when I talk to the dog. I never used it on the anklebiters, but somehow that furry face with the big, brown eyes just stops me from talking normally. My voice goes up an octave as I declare my love: “Whoz mammyz widdle baby?” “Youz a good boy.” “I just wanna kissy-wissy my cuddly wuddlie liddle boy!” Aargh! Someone help me!
– Dare I confess this? I am…
a fan of…
teen super hero…
And, last but not least, my well-documented fear of wasps is a quirky must, according to my family. My kids have endless fun imitating me as I run around screaming hysterically every time I see something that looks like a wasp. I mean, any winged insect could be a wasp in disguise – right?
Even a bee in pyjamas.
So, tell me, what’s your pet phobia?
