well, since you asked...

Spookie tagged me. I thought it would just be plain rude not to do it, so here are my 6 Things...

1. When I was in the market for some new music a while back, I bought a Daniel Powter CD, just because everyone else was buying the James Blunt CD which was released around the same time.

2. I'm beginning to think I'm going off alcohol completely. Not that I was ever a complete lush, but I've been known to give it a good rev on occasion - but I actually don't enjoy it anymore. At all. It makes me feel crappy and the only reason I take a drink now is because it really sux to be the only sober person in a crowd of merries. As a result I don't often go out these days. A teetotaller in Ireland is a rare animal indeed.

3. I love to browse dresses in shops - evening dresses such as ballgowns and cocktail dresses, specifically. I love to see the detail on them, how they were made, feel the fabric... and then it makes me want to sew. Many a class was spent designing evening-wear when I was at school. And yes, I love to watch the Acadamy Awards just to see the beautiful dresses.

4. I often wish we lived in a world before civilization. A 'Clan of the Cave Bear' sort of society, if you like. A world with no ugly buildings, no pollution, no roads, no plastic and no rubber, one where animals roam free and people hunt and gather to survive. I would happily give up my creature comforts to live in such a world - yes, even Blogging and flush toilets!

5. I would miss shoes, though.

6. I got a quote for house insurance yesterday and one piece of information on it leapt off the page at me... "Age at next birthday = 35".
I'm still trying to figure out when that happened. Because really, there is just no way I can kid myself that I'm a, well, kid anymore. Not with the big three-five staring at me in black and white. I'll let you know how I feel about that when I figure it out, ok?

I'm not going to tell you how long it took for me to come up with 6 things to tell you. It's quite pathetic actually. And she aspires to be a writer?! Hah!

Oh heck, I'm supposed to tag people now. Run and hide, people, run and hide...
Actually I'm not going to tag anyone for a change. My blogging is so erratic at the moment that I probably wouldn't get round to checking the tagees (is that a word?) for ages, so feel free to tag yourselves. It's a great way to fill a blank post when you run out of ideas ;)

Blogger ate my other comment.
Is the cd good?
I luv those shoes.
Clan of the Cave Bear I have not seen that movie in ages.
35 is not so bad. I am pushing *gulps* 40 this September. I am looking at it as another milestone in my life.

Spookie the Warrior said...

Ag! 35 and 40 is not old ladies Come ON! 120 - now that is old, you still have much living to do Terri! I idnetify with almost all your 6 things... except the clan of the cave bear thing, I would have liked to live in the days of the cowboys, just a little after the cavebear clan time.
Hugs and kisses!!

anne said...

Off the sauce? But... but... You can't watch the Academy Awards and be sober...!
Also, if that world-before-civilization fantasy includes giving up the bike, can I have it?

kyknoord said...

I think I would miss my toothbrush.

Lori said...

I hear ya on the alcohol I hardley touch the stuff any more.

Terri said...

Beads - Naughty Blogger! The cd is good. I love the shoes too - I bought them in Rome last year when we were there for a long weekend 'cos when you go to Rome you just have to buy a pair of shoes, right?
The movie was terrible, the books were much better. I'll *gulps* with you come September. Champagne, that is ;)

Spookie - 120? Wow, you look really good for your age lol! Maybe cowboy times would've been fun. I reckon I would've been Annie Oakley or something, hehe!

Anne - Don't worry dear, I fall off the wagon for special occasions. And, er, no. Looks like I'm going to have to re-think this fantasy world :/

Kyknoord - So would we...

Lori - Ha! You can't fool me! I saw u at Linda's blog-party that time! :-D

Spookie the Warrior said...

I have an anti-aging secret, but I aint sharin. Though today, I really do feel 120 :(

angel said...

i'm going to be 33 this year and i never saw it coming!
as for the alcohol thing, when my sister came out of rehab we all started drinking a lot less- like you, we weren't lushes before, but we socialised A LOT!
can't remember when last i was even a little torched...
and i like civilisation WAAAY too much to go back and live without shopping malls and fast food!

jason evans said...

Clan of the Cave Bear? Interesting. I'd like to give pioneering a shot (log cabin, that sort of thing. In fact, I'm building a log cabin shed in the mountains just to see what is was like. The answer--hard work!)

Lori said...

Happy Mothers Day Terri! ;)

Terri said...

Spookie - well I suppose if u told us then it wouldn't be a secret anymore... but telling us you have the secret of eternal youth and not sharing it, well, that's just plain mean!

Angel - Hm, shopping malls. You people sure know how to make a good argument for civilisation!

Jason - Yes, I think that's why they invented building contractors ;)

Lori - Thanks, and to you too!
b.t.w. I haven't forgotten about your interview, just a little short on research time these days.
