Yet another

25 January 2007

Another weekly meme that is. The Friday five thing doesn’t really appeal to me anymore, not sure why. So instead I’m gonna do the Thursday Thirteen. Course this means I now gotta come up with 13 things every week. Not quite sure if I’ll manage it, but we’ll see.

Thirteen Things about ME

in other words, 13 things that are probably already listed in my 101 things page, but, as this is the first I figure I may as well start at the beginning

  1. I have 5 brothers and a sister. All younger than me except one.
  2. I don’t use real names on my blog
  3. The brothers are referred to as B#whereever they come in the family eg B#1, B#4 etc. Or sometimes I’ll simply say de brudder. Which can refer to any of them. As I only have the one sister you can figure out for yourselves how I refer to her.
  4. I like to lie.
  5. When I say lie I usually mean exaggerate for effect. So not strictly an untruth, more of a stretching, you know, like whatshisface in Big Fish.
  6. Then again, sometimes everything I say is exactly how it happened, it depends how imaginative I’m feeling.
  7. I’m usually quite good at starting things
  8. Which means I’m not quite so good at following through.
  9. Like many, many people, I procrastinate. If it weren’t for deadlines I’d never finish anything.
  10. But I don’t like to be late.
  11. As a matter of fact I’m usually early. Which is probably a reaction to de fadder always being late, or taking longer than he said. You know the way “I’ll be back in two minutes” ends up with you hanging around waiting for ten.
  12. Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol was the last song I listened to this morning before starting work.
  13. I only have a couple of hundred songs on my MP3 player but have around 10 gig waiting to be added. I’m procrastinating you see.

    Hi, I just found your site on the T13 hub and thought I'd stroll over. Seeing as this is your first, let me be the first to welcome you to T13 and hope you make a better job of it than I have recently. My T13 can be found here

  5. kyknoord says:

    The slightly twisted logic of a statement like "I like to lie" just never loses its appeal.

  6. anne says:

    You… lie? That… that… that's just… wrong!

  7. Fence says:

    Hi Scouser, your comment was held in moderation, thats reason for the delay. I'll delete the duplicate, just for tidiness' sake :)

    Welcome to the blog Amy.

    Kyknoord, or maybe I was lying when I said that I like to lie. Maybe it is a habit I just can't break…

    No Anne, it is ever so right

  8. weenie says:

    I don't think I'm dedicated enough to do one of these every Thursday but I'll give it a go tonight maybe. Can't log onto Blogger from work any more…outrageous!

  9. Hey! Welcome to TT, and thanks for coming by my blog!

    I'm so like you on #7,8,9,10, and 11!! Wow. As for how you refer to your sister…is it "The Sis", "Sistah", or, as it is in my family, "Siskers"?

    As you know, my TT's up…things you should know about the vampires in my books, The Gardella Vampire Chronicles…

    I like to exagerate like in the movie Big Fish too.

    Great list.

  11. Babystepper says:

    You sound a bit like me. (i.e. exaggerating, procrastinating, being early because your "fadder" was always late.) Welcome to TT. I'm fairly new here myself.

  12. Fence says:

    Indeed that is outrageous weenie, perhaps you should investigate a new place of work :) If you do do it don't forget to add your link up above.

    Hi Jane, exaggeration is what makes life more truthful.

    Babbystepper, great name :)

    Hello! Welcome to the TT! I had no idea when I started that 21 editions later I'd still have lists to make, but you find stuff. It's a nice brain stretcher to decide what to write about, then to actually make the list. :)

  14. Fence says:

    Hi Colleen, I have actually been lurking about your site for a while :) Carl's post got me all interested in your book.
    The sister is just that, the sister, not very original or interesting but thats how it is.

  15. Sparky Duck says:

    You'll be amazed at some of the things you can come up with list wise, so it wont be that bad. Now the procrastination could be a problem to get it done by Thursday night :)

    I have found alot of great blogs thru this meme, like Coleen's & Tiggerprr's and I just wandered here all by myself.
