6 UN-Spectacular things about me......

Okay, Heather has tagged me for this meme. I read a few posts from people doing it, and it seems it's meant to be 6 not-so-great things about yourself. This could be revealing......

First, the rules......

1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 5 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

Okay, here goes. 6 Un-Spectacular things about me.

* Although my hair (sometimes) looks smooth and shiny, it's only because I use a hair straightener. :( By nature it's neither straight nor curly...... just a fairly wild in-between wavy (or in humid summer weather, frizzy ;))

* I'm really really addicted to dark chocolate. I love that relaxed happy feeling I get when I eat it!! Thankfully my addiction isn't too out of hand.... I don't think about eating it all the time.....and I only usually budget in one block a week... and it's only a 100g block....... and I only really eat 1-2 pieces a day....... and yes, I'm trying to justify it.....

* I detest cleaning my oven. It's my least favourite house-worky job, and gets done very rarely. Please don't look in there Mum, you'll be quite horrified I'm sure!

* I have a habit of cutting off the end of Stuart's sentences. If he pauses even slightly, I jump in. I always think I know what he's going to say - I'm often right, but sometimes not, and he finds it frustrating. I'm trying really hard to stop!

* I write to-do lists, but often don't get through them. It's funny, because the jobs from today just keep getting pushed onto tomorrow. This means it could be a week or more before a job actually gets done. I know I have a newborn, but I'm hard on myself and find this frustrating!

* I check emails LOTS of times a day. Lots!! Too many times!! Just looking for a message from a friend or family member......... or, you guessed it, blog comments!! Stu finds this quirk funny. "Just checking emails are you Min?" he'll say. "Yep, it's been at least a minute since you did, so you'd better check again...........". Elijah will also walk in and say "Oh Mamma, are you checking emails again?"! Can anyone relate to this one?? :)

5 people to tag (play along if you want to):

1. Jen
2. Cathy
3. Theresa
4. Andrew
5. Tamra

Have a great night, enjoy the Olympics! (Aussie, Aussie Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi!)

I despise cleaning the oven too! I prefer to just shut the door and ignore the mess.

I too am addicted to checking for comments. Even Bee notices. She often says, "So. What's happening on your blog today Mom?"

I think I did my meme wrong - oh well - & yes I LOVE blog comments & check them regualarly! I hate cleaning the oven ( I have two & they both need a good clean & it's been on my to-do list for much too long!)
I did hear however that dark chocolate is full of anti-oxidants & it's good for you to have a couple of squares a day - so there you go - you can justify it!! (shame I like milk chocy - which is definitely NOT good for me)

hehehe love to hear your unspectacular quicks/addictions ;-) Think the blog checking/email checking is contagious! I am ALWAYS on the internet when Andrew comes home, and sometimes forget to say hello when he comes in, I'm that absorbed ;-) As for chocolate - you're talking to the converted/fallen so no need for justifications. Although, cocoa pod is a fruit!!!! That's all I need to know!
