Weird things

Okay… I’ve been multiple-tagged, so here are 5 weird-ish things about me. I won’t prolong the chain as I think everyone’s had a go by now, and anyway, I don’t know who likes being tagged and who doesn’t.
  1. Although I chose to have a tattoo, I have an almost pathological fear of needles. The last time I went to have an insurance medical, I said to the consultant “Before you start, there are two things I need to tell you. One – there’s no way I’m having a blood test. And two – your finger’s not going anywhere near my arse.” He thought I was a lunatic.
  2. I like eggs, but only if I cover them with tomato ketchup. I would throw up without it, although years ago – after watching Rocky, I think – I went through quite a long spell of eating a raw egg (with pepper and Tabasco) for breakfast.
  3. I can't drink water out of a cup... it seems to taste vile, even if it's straight from a bottle. It has to be in a glass, and the glass has to be spotlessly clean. And I can't drink coffee out of a dark-coloured mug - I have no idea what that's all about, so don't ask me.
  4. I’m a compulsive tidyer. Sometimes it’s quite embarrassing, because people who come round think I’ve done it just for them. In fact, I generally go over the entire house a couple of times a week, including loos I hasten to add. You could eat off them, although I wouldn’t really recommend it.
  5. I get pisseed very quickly on beer, but can happily drink vodka all night without any sign of being inebriated. I can also do tequila quite impressively, and once had 14 slammers whilst remaining sober. Well, standing.
So… there you have it. And I’m in a very, very good mood at the moment, as it happens, because it looks like I’ve had a brilliant piece of news about the new company. I’ll know tomorrow, and don’t want to jinx it just yet…

NML said...

My fingers are crossed for you. Good luck x

Annalis said...

Hmmmmm, I knew your five would be interesting.
Thanks for playing, WDKY!

emerald eyes/kitty said...

Sweet... I hope the news is really as good as it sounds!
I got tagged by a fellow blogger for the same thing... I just haven't gotten around to it yet 'cause I truly dislike tags, chain emails etc. and have lots of other stuff on my mind.
I do suppose they are great in the sense that we did get to see a bit of your quirks!
And here I thought you were pretty darn close to being perfect! ;) teehee

kimmyk said...

good luck with the work thingy...i'll keep my fingers crossed.

Blondie said...

I hope it is good news too T.

About the beer v. vodka... Same exact thing here.

The rest, hehe, they make you "unique".

WDKY said...

KD - see? We're made for each other. And thanks.

NML, thanks darling x

Anna - I'd rather it had been 5 "interesting" things actually, because I struggled to stop myself going off in that direction. And I tried to avoid sexual weird as I wanted to avoid frightening people off :-)

Em... perfect? Moi?

EJ - you do. Trust me :-)

Kimmy... nice glass too. And thank you.

Ruthi - we must go out drinking one night!

Zooz, was that you? What's with the new name???

zooz said...

hhhmm, I think it's because I have to fill in two 'windows' which I didn't notice before.

zooz said...

this isn't going well

zoozan said...

don't know what's going on

New York Moments said...

Oh my God! The smell of ketchup on eggs makes me gag!!!

I need someone to come tidy up my place! If things don't go well with the business, I've got a job for you! ;-)

WDKY said...

Test message... Zooz has been complaining again.

WDKY said...

You know I'd want extremely regular shagging, NYM... not really sure if you're up to the job :-)

k o w said...

Eggs + Ketchup = Awesome.

el Jacek said...

haha... thanks man, I knew I couldn't have been problemless :)

networkchic said...

Well we seem to share a couple of weird habits. I absolutely adore ketchup on eggs, it's the only way to eat them. I also am a compulsive cleaner. I can't stand clutter, maybe it's true what they say, spotless space, clear mind.

By the way, the coffee cup thing is weird but you are so wonderful in all your other traits I'll overlook this one. :-)

New York Moments said...

Is this a challenge?

WDKY said...

Well, it would be fun finding out the answer, wouldn't it?

WDKY said...

NWC, I knew we were made for each other! And flattery will get you everywhere.

Mine Is a Gin said...

I entirely agree about the water thing - I can't bear to drink water from a mug. And I used to only be able to eat fried eggs if I mixed tomato ketchup in to the yolk. But that was when I was 8, and I've grown up now! ;-)

ladylongfellow said...

I can completely relate to the liquor thing. When I drink beer, I get mellow, though. Now tequila, mmmmmmm.....love tequila. I'm picky about tequila though, I'll only drink shots of 1800 and I have to ave lime, not lemon. It's a different kind of fun drinking!

So, when you coming to Pennsylvania? lol

ladylongfellow said...

Ok...I give up...if this doesn't post this time! grrrrrr

For the 4th time..lol..I can agree with you about the beer -but it makes me mellow not cranky. Now the tequila...we are going to have to do some tequila drinking when you come to Pennsylvania!

ladylongfellow said...

Bloody hell -now there are 2 posts! ok, now 3.

WDKY said...

Ginny, are you trying to tell me something???

LL - 50% is a reasonable success rate. Not quite a pass though (ROFL).

zoozan said...

see it wasn't just me earlier. Lady longfellow had the same problem

check said...
