Random Gubbins

I’m ‘it’ apparently – thanks Flowers. I don’t usually do memes, in fact let me rephrase that, I NEVER do memes because half the time they require too much thinking, but what the heck!! This meme is also for Amel who has tagged me regularly and continues to have faith, despite my proven laziness when it comes to these things. Here goes:

1. I have an irrational fear of walking by people who’ve picked up after their dogs in New York. You know the ones; they’re carrying little bags of poop. I always worry they’ll have some sort of full body spasm and throw poop at me and who needs that. I’ve been known to cross the street to avoid them.

2. I walk easily, and quite quickly, in 3+ inch heels. I firmly believe this a genetic trait…nooooo, not from my father, well…not that I’m aware of. Ugh, perish the thought!!

3. I believe I would go insane if I didn’t live within a reasonable proximity to a big city.

4. I HAVE to be coordinated. If I am dressed in brown tones and my watch has a black strap it niggles me. Ditto on wearing non-matching underwear, I don’t know why, but it HAS to match, even if no-one is going to see it. To this end I have a list of outfits that work pinned next to my mirror at home to avoid those ‘Oh f**k what am I going to wear today’ moments. It works kids, make a list and never have a bad outfit day EVER AGAIN!!! Don’t tell people though, they’ll label you anal retentive. B'stards!!

5. Unsurprisingly, given the above point, I’m an ISTJ on those Myers Briggs tests. Apparently list making is a characteristic of being a J. According to some random blurb I read online ISTJ females are one of two most overrepresented female types in a substance abuse program. Hmmmm!!!

6. I can still do a cartwheel, and I’ll be 37 (sob) this year kids. Not bad going I think.

7. At the moment I’m quite addicted to spinach, roasted tomato, feta and egg breakfast wraps from Starbucks, 240 calories of pure deliciousness.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but feel free to do the meme should that be your want :-)

That's funny about being addicted to those Starbucks breakfast wraps. If you're like me, you prefer having the same thing for breakfast. Since I'm working nights this week and next, I've been making these little egg sandwich sliders at home. One egg per sandwich with melted cheese, and maple sausage on mini bagel bread. I have two every morning.

Ha Ha, may i just say mmmmmmmmmm!! Those eggie bagel things you've been whipping up sound scrumptious!! I'm inspired to give them a whirl. And yes, i can eat the same thing for breakfast day in day out :-)

Sid said...

Hmmm, and I thought I was weird. Might do one of these Memes. Might. Might not. I've crazy that.

Flowers said...

great imagery: a cartwheeling, heel-wearing, wrap-eating city lover!

your brain power output was much appreciated! thank yooou.

Amel said...


1. LOL!!!
2. BRAVOOOOO!!!! I can NEVER do that!!!
3. I can understand that. You're a city girl. Got it! *nodding*
4. HI HI HI HI HI...A bit OCB, eh?
5. I'm INFJ. So we're both J!
6. Hey, what happens with the new adage "Life starts at 40"? Besides, it's just a number he he...with your attitude and sense of humour, I'm sure you're forever young inside. ;-D
Btw, I CAN'T do cartwheel! :-((((
7. I LOVE spinachhhh!!! ;-D

fishwithoutbicycle said...

Hi Sid, yup I guess I've admitted it know, I'm weird :-)

Hi Flowers, glad you appreciated the effort :-)

Hi Amel, yes, most definitely a touch of the OCD I think, but not too bad. We are both J's, I's too. If I recall correctly the two outside letters rarely change, but the two inner ones can, so I suppose that means at our core you and I are quite similar. Does that thought scare you :-)

Amel said...

Scare me? NOT AT ALL!!! It makes me feel glad that I'm not alone HE HE HE HE HE HE...

By the way, in case you miss this one...maybe you're interested in winning a pair of diamond earrings:

Thanks Amel :-)

Kitty said...

The whole Meyers-Briggs thing intrigues me, mainly because most people I know don't know what type they are.

I'm an INFP. Mark acts like the ENTJ description, though he's probably an INTJ.

I know the J type really, really well, lol.

fishwithoutbicycle said...

Hi Kitty, I think almost everyone I know is a J, although I think I'm more J than most. All I can remember about being a J is that we're very organised and like making lists :-)

Amel said...

Blur Ting said...

Cartwheel? I couldn't even do that when I was a kid!

I can imagine you must be pretty well turned-out everyday. Me? Well, for a start, my underwear never matches.

fishwithoutbicycle said...

Hi Blur Ting :-) I did ballet and gymnastics as a kid, so I used to be able to do all sorts. Sadly, now it's just a cartwheel.
