Random Six

Really, I’m nothing if not compliant.

Okay, so I’m not usually compliant at all. In fact, what is the opposite of compliant? Pain in the ass? Yes, that’ll do. Normally, I’m a pain in the ass, but as the request from AmyMossoff is just one of the little things, I figured I’d give it another shot.

Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
4. Tag 6-ish people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know he/she has been tagged.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Numbers 1. and 2. are taken care of above.


1) My left eye is tremendously far-sighted with a serious astigmatism. My right eye is slightly near-sighted. This means that when I wear my glasses my left eye appears quite a bit larger and my right eye appears somewhat smaller than they really are. Yup. Just call me googly-eyes. Don’t really. I won’t respond.
2) My pre-teen alias was Jacqui Nestlé.
3) I hold my pen as if I have been trained to write at Ug’s School for Cavemen.
4) I am obsessed with concrete as a residential building material.
5) My teeth hurt when I think about the applications of ‘4)’
6) I wouldn’t make a good spy because when I walk down stairs, noises emanating from my knees could wake the dead. I’m pretty sure that is the only reason.

4. Since I already tagged Kim, Fiddler and Stephen, was marginally successful with TheAestheticCapitalist, and not successful with Manoj or C. August the last time I tried to induce anyone to divulge six things about her- or himself, I would like to share this challenge with Shez, Deb, Beth, Sue, Janelle, and Trixy. [All right. Those last two are just friends of Jacqui – see ‘2)’.] If any of the aforementioned previously tagged bloggers want to play, or anyone who reads this, has not been tagged, but would like to, please consider this your invitation and let me know in the comments so I can be sure to read your list.

5. Does this mean more than writing this in my blog? How shall I get in touch with them? I’ll try it.

6. Okay Amy – it’s up!

Oy! I never even saw that you tagged me last time! Not that I would have definitely done it... but still.

Lo siento.

I don't speak Spanish.

But the really good news is now you can be Janelle or Trixy - your choice.

OK, what's with the teeth hurting? Yes, that is the most intriguing thing on your list to me.

Lynne said...

It comes from living with children. No matter what you say, they run in the house. When your floor is made of concrete, a simple trip could mean a busted face (including teeth). Ow.

My tongue also tingles when I think about spiral bound notebooks. Extra randomness!

OK I'll play but I don't understand the rules.
What does it mean to tag someone and how do you do it?
How do I link the the person who tagged me? (I guess that is you.)
If you can't tell, i am still a mega-newbie at this blogging stuff.

Oops. I forgot to check "email follow ups", so I am doing it here.

Lynne said...

Well I just don't know. Once I got tagged in the blog comments and once via email. Since I rarely know personal email addresses, I've done it both in blog comments and (passive-agressively) on the blog post. This last way is ridiculous because there is really no way that someone knows they've been tagged and then might later feel they should apologize - no need.

The "why" is something I can't answer but to say it's kind of fun. That's the theory anyway.

Was that even close to answering what you asked. I'm relatively new here, too.

OK It's up.
