6 Things I Hate About Me

Wow. My first blog-tag. This trip is really turning into a life-time landmark.

Yah, so PunkRockMama has given me my mission, the rules and regulations of which are as follows: *clearing throat*

1. Reveal six weird facts/things/habits about yourself and then tag six people.

2. Leave a “You’re Tagged!” comment to let the people you have tagged know they have to reveal six things (or the entire blogosphere will explode and it will be their fault).

3. Leave me a comment letting me know that you have completed your mission (if you have chosen to accept it!)

Okay, so here goes:

1. While I’m addicted to blogging, I never complete these chain e-mail type reveals – I enjoy reading others’ responses but I figure I’m self-absorbed enough as it is and already in danger of proclaiming national ‘Let’s just read all about Jenny!’ week any day now. I’m sure I will one day, just as soon as I can find space on my Yahoo calendar.

2. I’m phone-a-phobic. I’d MUCH rather have a microphone in a room full of thousands of people than chat on the dirty old telephone. Luckily I have a 3-year-old PA who helps me out with that.

3. I have a phobia of public toilets. This multiplies exponentially when camping.

4. Being in libraries, book-stores or being struck by a bolt of inspiration has an automatic ‘Jenny-you-need-to-go-to-the-toilet-right-now’ effect. This causes me no end of trauma (see point number three). Subsequently I’m looking at installing an at-home library/bookstore/muse.

5. I practice my comedy in the car, sometimes without even realising that I’m doing so. This can be incredibly embarrassing when I realise that the person in the next car has caught glimpse of me – especially if I’m working on my ‘baby-cam’ bit (which, for those of you who haven’t had the dubious pleasure of seeing it, is basically a physicalisation of a baby coming out of the canal – and no, I’m not talking Panama).

6. Sometimes when using a public toilet I get stage-fright and have to coach myself into peeing by saying stuff like ‘Jen, you gave birth in front of a room full of strangers – a little widdle really ain’t that bad.’ Yes I’m a freak.

Oh crikey. When the hell did this become a toilet blog? I’m doomed.

Okay, I’m tagging:

1. Ash and Leon

Cos they both make me laugh and I want to see if life abroad has in any way affected their quirkiness.

2. My hubby

Cos he might just respond in haiku.

3. Gem

Cos she’s the first blogger I ever followed and I’m nothing if not loyal. (I don’t know if that even made sense – I’m sorry I’m surviving on VERY little sleep)

4. TimT

Cos he never writes about anything personal so I’m intrigued to see how he fields this one.

5. Chris Daniel

Cos he’s a dude.

6. Bart Freebarin

Cos I can hardly understand his random wacked-out musings so an unpredictable response is virtually guaranteed.
