I be tagged by Angela and Jan - Ooh arr!

Rules: Link to the tagger and post these rules on your blog. Share 5 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog...

1. I'm currently on week 3 of a 'no caffeine for one month' regime and have really got into Rooibos tea!

2. I wear belts the wrong* way round compared to everyone else and always have done.
(*You know, over your head then fed down between your toes... no, from left to right:)

3. 90% percent of my dreams involve either cute women or dogs... or both... and no, not like that! The other 10% tend to be V surreal.

4. It really really winds me up when people say 'pacifically' when they me
an to say 'specifically', and other such malapropisms. Grrr

5. For the last 6 months at high school, I was affectionately nicknamed "Boner Boy" :0]
(I'm not explaining)

I'm going to tag... erm... pfff... these bloggers:
Warlow, Toccata, Sarah, Photogirl and Rob

Today, I'm Most Angry About: Well, if I'm being pacific, my level of day-to-day anger!!! :[
Grrr-O-Meter Rating: 7/10

Today's Top Tip:
Never try to teach a sheep to sing. It wastes your time and irritates the sheep.

What a rude man you are;-)
I'll get you for what you said (and you know where)

Anonymous said...

oh thank you!

By the way, have you elfed yourself?

Anonymous said...

No.5 - way too much information... Let's hope it's unrelated to No.3!

Aoj and The Lurchers said...

So do you mean that you thread your belt into the loop to the left of the fly first? Or the other way around?

Boner Boy! ha ha!!

mellowlee said...

haha! I love these tag lists, too much fun :O) I'm always amazed at finding out more about my blog friends.

Phil said...

Hahaha - I ran and hid, but you found me... How did you know I would be here? :0]

No, I've not go round to elfing myself. I want to do myself and a few mates and then I'll e-mail it to them :]

LOL - Number 5 and 3 are completely unrelated :]

At the moment I start on the left and thread it round to the right, but I can't remember if I've changed recently, as I have a belt with writing on the buckle and that was when I found the text upside down and realised I was doing it backwards and confimed I was with friends. :] life is so complex!

Yeah, these lists can reveal some odd things indeed :]

Max said...

I now have an image of a Busty Valkyrie Woman on a dog drawn sleigh flying above a Norse battle field.
One of the dogs is called Colin the brave

Phil said...

Hahaha - that comment was almost as surreal as my dreams!

LOL @ Colin the brave :0]

kat said...

I can't say 'specifically'- so I don't use it. :-)

Phil said...

Hahaha, isn't that odd! :0]

Kayla said...

I've had Rooibos tea too!
I found it at the fancy "Fresh Market" in town. Quite good.

My dreams of course, are of Ninjas in all black skin tight suits where I can only see their eyes...Spooky...It has been with me for about 20 years or so.
The funniest dream I had lately was:
I was floating in the river in an innnertube, watching the people on the banks as I sailed along. Suddenly, the river had led to an ocean, and I was alone and scared to death!
I looked all around me to see nothing but 20 visions of my cat Gracie sitting in a sphinx pose, bobbing up and down with the waves...I then tried to find which one WAS the real Gracie...
??? Who knows what that one is about!

I had a friend who would say "complexcicity" instead of complexity. Drove me Batty!!!

Can we all now call you "DoGGa the Big Boner Boy??"
Of course, by this, I mean a nice boy who fancies dogs, and likes to give them big chew bones...

Kayla said...

Oh, I wanted to address your top tip for the day...
"Never fight with a pig, you will both get muddy, and the pig will love it!"

Had to use that logic with an ex sister-in-law who was a real bitch!

Phil said...

Ah, another Rooibos fan! Cool :]

Yes, I forgot about your irrational fear of Ninjas LOL - that's one surreal dream you had there too!

I'm not surprised that linguistic error drove you batty. I can't stop myself correcting people; people I know of course.

The common one in Britain is illiterate buffoons using 'brought' instead of 'bought' E.G. "I've just brought a coat" AGGGHHH NOOO YOU HAVEN'T, you've just 'bought' a coat and maybe 'brought' it home with you. *and relax...*
Making a mistake is fair enough, but there's no excuse for such little understanding of your own language.

Ah what the heck, while I'm here, another classic is people saying 'ecscape' instead of 'escape'! Grrr, where the other 'c' pops in from I don't know :[]

I like addition of 'big' in my high school nickname there! Sadly it's not the case, but hey, I'm not complaining ;0]

I may be slow, but I answered your tagging.

Phil said...

On my way over :] --->

Toccata said...

Ew, Rooibos tea. Tried it once never again. Ok, I am back and tomorrow (December 14) I will write up my list.

Weird, my dreams involve cute boys but never boys and dogs!

Phil said...

Well, you can't be in my Rooibos club then :0]

Will head on over to your list soon.

I think I have a have a dog problem :)
