In the absence of deep and meaningful how 'bout some insight instead?

I got tagged. By Spookie. Thanks Spookie! 'Cos actually, talking about myself is one of my favourite things to do on this blog. It's all about Me here.
No prizes for guessing why they're called "MeMe's", hehehe

So here are the rules:

Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged and to read your blog!

So here are my 7 things:

1. When I was about 9 years old I got a letter from a girl we had lived next door to for years, before we moved away. She was a year older than me and I was quite horrified by her spelling and grammar in this letter so little 9-year old Terri conscienciously made corrections on the letter in red pen just like her teacher did at school and sent the letter back together with her reply. I never heard from her again and I still feel really bad about that.

2. I just Googled "conscienciously" to make sure I spelled it correctly. I guess some things never change.

3. This morning my husband affectionately called me his "rebel nerd". That is probably one of the most accurate descriptions of me, ever.
I am an oxymoron.

4. I think I look like my grandmother when I chew my food. Not that I've ever watched myself eat but the way my jaw feels as it moves when I'm eating conjures up the image of my grandmother eating so I can only surmise that is what I look like.

5. Even though I often say I've gotten really lazy about housework - and mean it - if I'm honest, my home is still probably cleaner and neater than the average. I'm a neat freak :) If my surroundings are messy it drives me slowly mad.

6. I emailed a friend of mine a couple of days ago to ask her nicely to make the photos she emails out a bit smaller 'cos they're making my mailbox hang and I haven't heard from her yet. I'm wondering if I need to carry out damage control (see #1 above).

7. In keeping with my new-found "Rebel Nerd" status I am going to break the rules of this meme by not tagging 7 people.

In fact, I'm not tagging anyone. But those of you who feel the urge, please consider yourselves tagged. You can even quote me :)

Just make sure you never lose that all-important "oxy" part.

Funny how us consciencious people are always so misunderstood hey? The red pen on the letter sounds like something I would do - hee!

A rebel nerd with a red pen, no less! That's a pretty fabulous description your hubby came up with if you ask me. And I can sooo see you with that red pen. Sometimes others just don't know how fortunate they are that people such as yourself are care enough and are willing to take time out of their busy day to correct them in red! ;)

I really like the random facts posts! What folks come up with is so insightful. Thanks for the glimpses!

Terri said...

Kyknoord - It's the little things that count, eh?

Spookie - Glad to know I'm not the only one!

LiVEwIRe - Exactly! Where would the world be without me?! It's so nice to meet someone who appreciates how special (?!) I am ;-)

Jason - Plus you get to see exactly how nutty people are.
