6 Quirky or Boring - You Decide

I need to procrastinate, I can’t just come up with this stuff at short notice you know, so I was tagged a little while ago by the fabulously funny PottyMouthMama and recently by Bubba and Chicken (one of the first encouraging bloggers) for 6 unique things about me (by unique I think they mean odd, that is ok by me because I have at least 6)
1) Link to the person who tagged you
2) Mention the rules
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself
4) Tag six other bloggers by linking to them
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged
1. I have worked at the same job since I left school at 16, that’s 14 years people. I have left and studied and gone back. I guess that goes into the boring file, but I have been able to work from home for at least half of that which is fantastic. I draw up commercial kitchens and bars, so I basically bring food and alcohol to the world (you can thank me later).
2. Having worked form home though means I can work anywhere, and I do. I am a bit of a Gypsy though I have just moved up and down the east coast of Oz. I think at last count I was up to 25 places in 30 years, so not a bad average. I blame my parents for this, they started the moving itch and I haven’t stopped. The kids though have changed that and we are hoping to stay put for a while.
3. I HATE fruit, which for some reason causes people to list a variety of fruits to check that I really don’t like any of them – I don’t. I can eat a berry as long as it is dressed up as a dessert, but that is it. I remember in pre-school the teacher making me sit until I ate some and refusing to give me the cheese my mum bought me – If your reading lady you scarred me for life!
4. The one material possession I covert more than any is the Eames chair. The Eames were an amazing pair, did you know they gave any staff a maternity present of a Eames rocking chair. I would so have 10 kids for those babies!
5. My biggest fear is being lost in space, I guess for an irrational fear that is not a bad one since the likelihood of being face with it is fairly slim. I can’t watch any of those space movies as my stomach seems to crawl up in ball on the carpet.
6. I hate smelling and tasting food when I cook it. Glen is always saying smell this, try this and it makes my stomach turn every time. I like to mix different stuff if I ever get in the kitchen, and usually turns out good, but I don’t try before I buy.

I have been tagged by a couple of other lovely ladies too for some other things, but I have to pace my self, Blogtober and all, but I don’t know if it is because I am new to the blogging game, but I do like a tagging so thanks ladies! I know have to pass the baton on, which for some reason makes me nervous, so if the following ladies would like to carry on please do.
PippiJoe - Since she was the first lovely lady to tag me
Drewzel - You can do this Steph or keep posting cute cat pictures
Handmaiden - I reckon she will have some good ones
Mellimoomoo - She is total retro - cool
And of course anyone else that wants to join in I would love to read it!

Funny facts...I'm not a fruit fan either, except for bananas, or if they're part of cake.
Everything tastes better when it's surrounded by cake!

25 places in 30 years - that actually sounds great! Much better than being in one place for too long.

I did my six things a while ago too :)

My little chicken wont eat fruit either havent thought about the problems when they have to eat fruit for morning tea at school???

Thanks for playing...

pippijoe said...

ooh- thanks for the tag! Can I give you one boring fact now? It often takes me ages to think of interesting (or boring) things to tell you about, so I may take a little while to get this done!! x

Oooh Eames chairs. Noice. I like hanging out in Bridge Road with my nose pressed to the window of Living Edge admiring the Eames chairs there.

Drewzel said...

Mmmm chairs. Mmmm fruit. Mmmm cake.
I'll do this one on Friday, yay!

Amy (badskirt) said...

mmmm! Eames Chair. I'm a bit of an obsessive mover myself. I know what it's like to pack up and go.

I've tagged myself in with some utterly boring details about myself too.

I lived in the same house until I was 21.

I love the sauso mum notes - too cute.

mellimoomoo said...

Thanks Cindy! I like your total retro-cool description :) I've been told this weekend I'm super-cheezy too, that's a good thing I think, don't you? and...Eames rocks. xo

jodi said...

Not boring at all :)

Wow, you don't like fruit? I'm allergic to most, but really miss it.
