Tag!

I was tagged by Jenny.

Ground Rules: The first player of this “game??? starts with the topic “5 weird habits of yours??? and people who get tagged need to write a blog entry about their 5 quirky habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names:

  1. I shout at things. For example, if Tony Blair comes on the telly, I shout “YOU’RE RUBBISH. GET OFF”. And I often yell at my laptop, or the network terminals at work, calling them “Slow lumps of electronic donkey-dung”.
  2. I have the world’s worst dress sense, SimonG could give me fashion tips. If no-one nags me to do otherwise, I walk round looking as if I’ve been dipped in glue and thrown through the window of an Oxfam shop.
  3. I can be amazingly tolerant of some things, and intolerant of others. Things I’m tolerant of: People who consistently foul things up in spite of trying hard and giving it their best shot. Things I’m intolerant of: Selfish or thoughtless people, and people who won’t even try something new.
  4. I geocache. A lot. Actually, Jenny pointed out that whenever I start anything new, I do it “big style” – I don’t do anything in a small way. I guess that’s true, although I usually, after an initial burst of enthusiasm, calm down and take things sensibly. Not really a habit, but I’m getting desperate here.
  5. Also not really a habit, but it defines me more than anything else: I’m a Christian, from the Charismatic (aka “Happy Clappy” or “Armwaver”) wing of the church.

Anyways, you didn’t really think there’d be a Sunday blog without some geocaching did you? This pic was taken very close to the hiding place of a new cache in the New Forest, Beginners’ Luck. I made a nice three-mile circular walk, squelching through just the kind of terrain you’d expect in the New Forest at this time of year! It could be done in a shorter, drier walk, but the first couple of finders suggested that a longer walk would be better, so that’s what I did!

Oh yes, and for “Five habits” purposes, I tag Robbie Keyes, SarahJT, Formidable Gill, Mongers (this should be funny), and Omally.
