The Answers - 8 Simple rules

Having proven that even my own father doesn't know me I'm now happy to correct you all and give you the answers to the last post.

  1. Despite a hatred of being tagged, I love the attention and get annoyed when people don’t tag me.
    TRUE I feel envious of people who were tagged when I’m not. I’ve spent a serious length of time wondering why they were liked more than me. This, possibly, is a side effect of being a traffic whore.

  2. I was born 6 weeks early with my umbilical chord tied in a 'knot' and my flesh wasting away.
    TRUE Ask my parents. They’ll tell you about it, several times, in great detail, with pictures and slides to highlight the relevant points…

  3. When I was a child I wasn’t allowed to play with Action Men. I got my first Action Man on my 18th Birthday.
    TRUE Action man, He-man and the Thunder Cats were all considered too violent for me as a child. I got my first Action Man on my 18th Birthday by a Church friend who mistakenly thought it would remind me of my youth.

  4. I have never had a Girlfriend.
    FALSE I’ve had several. Possibly a case of learning the hard way

  5. I was caught trying to steal a Yo-Yo from a Newsagent.
    TRUE It was a very cool Yo-yo though…

  6. When I was around 10 I broke two bones in my left arm after falling off a skateboard.
    FALSE I did have a skateboard that wasn’t used much. But I’ve never broken a bone in my body. This meant I never got to stay home from school of to have one of those cool casts that everyone signs their name's on. But then, I wouldn't have had any friends to sign it anyway...

  7. I actually look better in my passport picture than in real life!
    TRUE I couldn't get a copy of my passport photo but imagine a slim, young well dressed me with a sexy half smile on my lips. Then compare it to this...


  8. Despite working in a call centre I hate talking to people on the Telephone.
    TRUE Having a mild stammer and slight lisp that gets several times worse when under pressure or drunk, I hate making even simple phone calls in case I screw up, and especially hate phoning for pizza after I’ve been out drinking.
So to summarize I'm a stammering, shoplifting, call centre employee, with telephonic phobia and a series of failed heterosexual relationships, who is however highly skilled at posing for tiny photographs.

How can you not love me?

A-ha, I was wondering which was so amongst that group... and you like to be tagged... time to dig into my files :)

ally said...

being tagged and tagging people is hard because some people do not want to do the memes. HOWEVER, now that i know... ;)

I grew up watching He-Man and Thunder Cats. I'm such an 80's freak.

I hate being on the phone when I'm tired. I simply cannot talk because my tongue is lazy and sleepy. I really sound stupid.

Webmiztris said...

"flesh wasting away"...that sounds scary! what causes that??

The Freelance Cynic said...

Well it was mostly becuase my body was starved by having my chord tied in a knot and was living off any resources it could find...

I would have been dead if I was born 30 minutes later.
