I’ve Been Tagged!

The bounteous and beauteous Arwen has tagged me with a meme. Apparently, I’m supposed to come up with five things my readers don’t know about me. Because she ‘likes it when I get confessional’. Is that code for ‘drunk’, Arn?
Now, given the fact that I know most of you IRL, you know quite a lot about me. Unless there are hordes of lurkers I don’t know about. Which baffles me. Because, really, this blog is kind of hit-and-miss. Like if all the labels get washed off your cans in a flood, but then all you have to eat are your canned goods. Are you going to get Vegetable Soup, or are you going to get Fancy Feast? You just never know.

Anyway. If you’re lurking, say hi, so we can be friends instead of creepy lurkers, right? Right. And THEN I will tell you Five Things of a scatalogical or sexual nature. Your choice.

My Five.

1.) My favourite Beatle is Ringo.

He just always looked like he needed a little extra cheering on. I mean, my mom was always all, “Paul’s so nice, dear.” But Paul didn’t need the cheers. Ringo did. Hey, why was my mom pimping The Beatles, anyhow?

2.) I’m becoming addicted to Star Trek: DS9

It turns out it’s a soap opera. I mean, it’s always on in E’s room, because he hearts himself some Star Trek, but I always thought I was above it. Until Worf got married. Now I find there are relationships! And feelings! It’s so easy to get sucked in.

3.) I still have all my bellydancing clothes even if I haven’t danced for a couple of years.

It’s still a part of who I am. Even if I’ve outgrown my shiny turquoise bra. I can still put it on, and of I stand very still and don’t move my torso, it doesn’t show any nipple at all.

4.) There is an Arbutus tree I hug every time I pass it.

Arbutus trees are dying around here, probably due to Global Warming. They don’t grow in cities much, but this one is the biggest I’ve ever seen up close. So I give it a little hug whenever I go past, just to say, ‘I’m pulling for you.’ OK, mock me now.

5.)I’ve forgotten how to link again.

Really, for someone who grew up using cutting-edge technology (phone-cradle modems, for example), I am a hopeless luddite. Hell, I even figured out how to disable the timer my Dad had on the computer, when I was a teenager. (It was the same one as the Christmas lights were on, though, and I heard the click right beside the computer.)

Okay, since I’m not sure who’s reading, I don’t know who to tag. But if you want to play this game, have at’er!

    I have a theory. You can tell a lot about a woman by knowing who was her favourite Beatle. Intellectuals liked John. Spiritual types liked George. Mothering types liked Ringo (because he needed cheering up and looking after). And shallow women who only considered looks liked Paul. Of course, at this age, it’s the gold diggers who like Paul.

    Oh, look at mom tying her nasty on… Paul was the dreamy one, s’posedly, for stability and tradition and taking a nice boy home. Some people like that sort of thing. He was nice looking in a puffy round faced sort of way, but the real draw was the fact that he’d mean it when he said Ma’am. g

    In the Wizard of Oz System:
    Paul Dorothy (who just wants to get home)
    John Scarecrow
    Ringo Lion
    George Tinman

    Or, if you like the color/personality typing:
    Paul Gold
    John Green
    Ringo Orange
    George Blue

    Oh, oh. Tarot… Uh…
    Paul Pentacles
    John Rods
    Ringo Swords
    George Cups

    Although those aren’t a one to one corrolation or noffin’.

    We called it Deep Space 90210. Heh.

    Hee hee! 90210!

    I’m all over the map when it comes to Arwen’s comparisons, though. And I HAVE always taken home the last puppy in the shop/zucchini on the rack/paperback on the ‘free’ table…

    I didn’t know that about Arbutus trees….I suppose everyone will be seeing me whispering sweet-nothings into their bark.
