Just when I thought it was safe to come out of the water and nip back to Athens for the weekend AZZITIZZ, who I recently gave a shout out, bloody well tags me.
I am supposed to tell you the rules but, quite frankly it isn’t rocket science so if you can’t work them out by reading the post you probably ought to run for president.

1. Every time I say that I am not going to do another meme it turns out to be a big fat lie.
2. I can hop for quite an impressive distance across very hot sand (I found this out last week when I stepped on a wasp at the beach).
3, I have overcome my fear of cockroaches (killing dozens of the things on a daily basis at our holiday let is excellent therapy).
4. Every time I see a bride being transported to church I get an almost irresistible urge to run after her screaming “DON’T DO IT! DON’T DO IT!”
5. I hate listening to squeaky/ high pitched voices so Mickey Mouse annoys the hell out of me.
6. I REALLY hate clowns, I may have mentioned this before but it bears repeating.
7. Hell will freeze over before I do a HNT,
8. YOUR TURN .What do you THINK you know about me?

Now it is my turn to tag:-

Tina, A post, a post…If only to cock my leg on.
Pauline. Keep it in the family.
Puerileuwaite. Well overdue!
Myutopia, nice name.
Sugar Smacks. Should be interesting
Blancodeviosa. She loves memes as much as I do.
Squirl, I don’t visit her nearly as much as I should.
Top Cat, for being a cool cat, and an “awesome dude”


Travis said...

I refuse to use your therapy method in #3 to overcome my fear of spiders.

Wait...I'm having to kill a couple a day right now and I still hate and fear them.

If I had paid for this, I'd demand my money back.


Tina said...

Well...u did it again!!! Looks like I will be posting again soon...Tina xoxo

EBEZP said...

Frankly Cathy I'm very upset.....
making upset scouser noises, number 7 OOH!
I 'm with you all the way on number 4 and I'm sorry about the way you found out about number 2!
As for Mickey Mouse, this one is very quiet!

lime said...

PHEW!!! i dodged that one!

my oldest would agree with you onthe clown issue

Pauline said...

Now I have to think of 16 things and I was having enough trouble thinking of 8 that wouldn't get me arrested or sent back to the big room with the rubber walls (Val tagged me already) I will have to think of an appropriate way to thank you for this (fiendish laughter manic look in eye)

Miss Understood said...

I think all marriages should consist of wearing the dress, drinking the beer, opening the presents, but not signing the papers.

Michael said...

Love #7 How sad and lame are people who do that? I'm guessing they have very low self esteem.

Anonymous said...

aren't you supposed to be like on holiday or something? lol

I have to finish up part 2 of my meme tomorrow and then I get on this.
Overwhelming gratitude.:)
chubby cheeks

Dan said...

I wonder if one of the cockroaches was reincarnated into a wasp?

cathy said...

travis, I love spiders, they eat mosquitos!

tina, I'll believe it when I see it.

ebezp, you get to see too much flesh as it is and that mouse is ugly.

lime I will get you next time, just giving you a breather.LOL.

pauline, and I have to find another 8!

miss understood,we can rename them birthday dresses and do it every year:)

michael, different strokes...

TC, We have to come home now and then to check on the old folks and prevent me from dying of boredom.

I'll check it out next time I'm in town.

dan, gee thanks now I will be worrying that the jellyfish are out to get me too.

Blancodeviosa said...

the bride thing is great!! just tell my husband... ahahaha jk

Hammer said...

I'm with you on the clowns and sqaeeky voices.

Especially if it's a clown with a squeeky voice.

MyUtopia said...

Check out my response, I hope I did it right.

val said...

Pauline, just 8 will do for both of us, I'm sure.

Er.. HNT? I know I'm going to kick myself, but all I can think of is HRT........

Logophile said...

Aaaah, your therapy plan, I underwent that same treatment program for spiders as a teen when I moved into the room off my parent's garage.
I still don't like them but can't work up the energy to get excited about them anymore.
Screaming at brides is not typically well received :p

puerileuwaite said...

I think the REAL reason why clowns are sad inside is because they know you hate them.

Ali said...

I'm a romantic at heart, I love to see a bride being transported to the church.

Cockroaches on the other hand, would scare the beegeeses out of me... yuk.

Blancodeviosa said...

Tell your brother he is mean, and I don't know why he left.


Matt-Man said...

I hope all is going well Cathy. Cheers!!

Flash said...

I loved #4, but I tend to look at it a little differently. Whenever I see a bride, I always think "And why am I not filming that wedding?"

snowelf said...

Ah! Cathy, these were incredibly entertaining! I'm so sorry to hear about your wasp steppage! Owie!!

I used to think the same thing about brides, but since I've had so many people I love get married this year, I have changed my tune. :)


Julie said...

Well on #7 whatis HNT?

Take care..great list!

Dirk_Star said...

You hate clowns?

Some people just have no respect for the President of the United States...

Shame on you.

Zhu said...

I think I'm gonna try you approach to coakroaches therapy... sounds like something I'd enjoy ! :D

Anonymous said...

I just wanted to let you know I posted my 8 things tag.:)

Magatha said...

So Melanie Griffith movies are right out, eh?

Just say "no" to memes.
That's my policy.

Blancodeviosa said...

just to let you know i've awarded you right back :)

cathy said...

blanco, 1. I did it last week, it felt great! 2. He knows and I tried to stop him. 3. oh, blushes:)

hammer, the stuff of nightmares!!!

myutopia, I'll be right over.

val, thanks for the reprieve and HNT is half nekkid thursday.

logo, spiders are cute:)

puerileuwaite, I can't help it:(

ali, weddings are harder to kill than cockroaches.

matt man, right back at you:)

flash, get a skateboard and a lassoo, or something.

snowelf, wait a few years and see what happens.

julie, I just told val the answer to that one.

dirk star, you are so right, no respect whatsoever.

zhu, eeek!! I know where you can get some practice

TC, well done chubby cheeks, I'll check it out.

magatha, you are a stonger woman than I!
