Oh look, tag…

by Kate on February 23, 2012

If you are a long time reader, you may have come to the conclusion that this space isn’t about the ‘real’ me.

I generally only post stuff that has a crafty spin because I just don’t think that this space could ever really be a true representation of me and who I am.

The thought of banging on about me and my life, in all it’s everyday-ness bores the absolute bejeesus out of me.

And then Tam tagged me.

Yes, I probably could have ignored it (which I very nearly did) but I thought hey, why not?…I’ve read a few of these in my time, so let’s ‘participate’.

The everyday

describe yourself in 7 words…WHY don’t we use 7 words I’m NOT
patient, tolerant, grey, mother of the year, teetotaler, messy, subtle

what keeps you up at night?
aircraft & the agent..

who would you like to be?
someone with more patience, someone who could rein it in.

what are you wearing right now?
standard summer fare – a dress.

what scares you?
getting murdered in my sleep*

what are the worst things about blogging?

This isn’t really the place for it, is it?? BUT (and it’s a biggie) if you know me in the flesh…ask me my thoughts on social networking and strap yourself in.

The people who have gone from ‘internet’ friends to the life-long, ‘couldn’t live without you’ ones

what was the last website you visited?
www.kootoyoo.com – the only girl on the internet who should be “discovered” from her lounge-room

slankets – yes or no?
Given I had to google ‘slanket’ to answer this question, I think – no.

tell us something about the person who tagged you?
Tam has 5 children, she is a saint – enough said.

*The crime network and too many episodes of ‘Australia’s Most Wanted’ as a child are the reasons for this answer..

This is hands down the best one of these I’ve read (& not just because I’m in it). Although I already knew all this about you I really quite like seeing it in print. Crikey mate maybe there’s a future in the banging on for us both! xx

There may well be, my friend xx

I too had to click on the slanket link and now I can’t stop CRACKING UP at the thought of you swanning about in one…

Can you imagine!? Surely a fire hazard?

Lol. Great list; thanks for sharing! I have no idea what your opinions are about social networking but as for myself, I do not and have no intention of ever belonging to facebook or myspace or twitter, etc. I take a huge amount of flack for it from my family, friends, colleagues, and people who only want to grow their “friend” totals. I also cringe every time someone “reminds” me to “like” them. Sigh.

PS. Your scarf/cowl turned out beautifully.

I bet the birth of the ‘slanket’ is an interesting story ;)

What a great post! These memes can be so samey sometimes…but love your take on the subject. I’m also curious about your take on social networking…I bet we’d be on the same page :-)
