I love Eight, Eight is Great, Eight is the Number I Do Not Hate

From Penni.

Here are the rules:

A. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.

B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.

C. [there is a Rule C about tagging 8 people, but given that most of my friends have, of late, fallen off the bloggery bandwagon, I shall make this a bit more open] If you're reading this, consider yourself tagged.

1. I was born in the front room of the house where my parents still live. They buried the placenta in the garden and planted a tree on top of it. The tree died.

2. I am scared of vomit, infidelity, heights and rollercoasters that go upside down.

3. I am not scared of spiders.

4. I am an atheist.

5. I am waiting for the day when scientists invent a) an electric blanket that can cool you down in summer, and b) mashed potato that makes you thin.

6. I am an insufferable know-it-all.

7. At my year 12 formal, I took the first boy I ever had a real crush on, although I no longer had the crush. My ex-girlfriend took my then-boyfriend. It was a really good night.

8. I am an only child, and I wouldn't have it any other way. My only regret is that I'll never be a real auntie.

If you're not a real auntie though, you'll never have to deal with real vomit. Just fun, let's go to the movies, whoo you just vomited here's you mum kind of vomit.

You know. The best kind.

Hi (pleasedtameetcha, like your blog, etc...)

I'm an only child too. I probably wouldn't have it any other way either but, similar to you, now that I'm older I would be quite happy for a couple of adult siblings to 'emerge' (so to speak). In addition to likely being a 'real auntie', I would have extra support to call on the phone or cry on their shoulders (esp to whinge about other family members!), and without having to suffer the hardship of sharing my toys!

Oh, but you WILL be a real auntie darling. Do you really think you will be allowed off the vomit and nappy hook? (Perhaps sooner rather than later!) I know for a fact that little Zinhle from South Africa and little Ebtehal from Ethiopia will be dumped... I mean, deposited... I mean, you will be free to babysit my imported children on any occasion you like.

And I shall do likewise with added showtunes education for no extra charge k thx bai

Ps I cant believe you had a good time at your year 12 formal. That is against the rules of life.
