Tagged by a kitten!

With a face like that, it is impossible to ignore such a request by such an adorable lady. Besides, she is the wife of the author of "Real Magic" and it always pays to have connections:) I think I have done this one though some time ago, but it matters not...I love to spill. I am odd and with that 8 habits/things/facts about me should come easily.

1.)I am the oldest of 7 siblings and therefore raised at least 3 of them. They turned out ok! Not well, but ok.

2.)I have really small ears and feet. No, I am not a hobbit! Have you seen those feet on them creatures?

3.)I love my job. The pay sucks but the reward is immense.

4.)Two birds live in my place, they sorta accept me around, as long as I don´t leave things lying in their territories or invite cats over for dinner.

5.)One of my best friends is 5. He usually sets me straight when I have illusions of grandeur with sentences like "You forgot to tie your shoes!" It is hard for some people!

6.)I am a huge Pratchett fan. He had me at "Hello!" Well, not really. He had me at:"Love is a moment of weakness when you allow somebody else to hurt you more than you ever thought possible!"

7.)I hate cutting my nails. Finger or toe doesn't matter. It all creeps me out! But it needs to be done, so I have invented a wonderful task/reward system for myself. It involves steak. ´Nuf said!

8.)I am a blog addict. Sometimes I have nightmares of not getting those verifiers right. I can quit any time I want, really!

Yep, that´s me. Take it or leave it!

:) Those are 8 great things about you! I learned a lot! What kind of birds do you have?

At 14:28, Blogger Jodes said...

great post, did you miss me? I featured a friend in my latest post - check her out!!!

At 14:36, Blogger Doug said...

Take it. When you say small ears, you don't mean like Shrek, right?

I love the cartoon. Okie-dokie for Cocoa Puffs!

Oh my Royal sister,

Lovely meme. You mean to tell me that you don't have one of your court servants trim those lovely nails??

*Sighs* Yes the pay sucks, but the accolades and parades are worth it. Not to mention all the boys. ;)

Cj, budgies...light blue/white ones. they are awesome, just like their mommy!

Jodes, Great!

Doug, I loooooooove Shrek. His ears are cute. Mine are different though... but I do have a similar vest as he does!

At 16:25, Blogger tsduff said...

How could you have raised 3 siblings already when you are still wet behind the ears? ~sigh~ I suppose it's all relative :-) At what age is a person considered "raised"?

I too reward myself with steak: but it is not good for the new diet regime :-O

At 16:38, Blogger Minka said...

Dewy, a servant touch my flippers, you out of your mind?

Terry, well considering there is a 20 gap between me and the youngest it is easily accomplished :) Incidently my mother just called, the one in Germany...it was oddly unsettling!

At 16:43, Blogger FelineFrisky said...

Minka, love! Love how you've blown Blessing up! He does have an ego that big, the old lovable curmudgeon! Love your factoids! We've seen your feet, now pics of your ears, we want proof! lol D

9.) Friendly, opened and curious even in the time of sorrow.

10.) Playful, a princess of witty responses.

At 17:29, Blogger Minka said...

FF, a lovely idea for a HNT-picture. I am just afraid I´ll have to zoom in a lot, to find those tiny ears:)

ariel, next time I´ll pass on my meme to you and let you write it for me, I come off better that way :)

What happens when you mix a hobbit with Discworld?

You get a Praddict!

well i find this meme as charmeme as you! and i've never been cuckoo for cocoa puffs, but just TRY and keep me away from rice krispies! and i, too, have nightmares about those verifiers, but not because i can't get 'em right, just because they really *do* drive me CUCKOO!

cutecutecute, not unlike yourself, sweet Penguin! xox

Children really can sometimes be some of our best friends. Maybe we need to learn from them.

Loved the cartoon.

At 05:43, Blogger SquareGirl said...

Minka sweetie, ss much as I appreciate the sharing, I have to say that those habits really don't seem to be that wierd to me.
Ariel's extention is far from wierd, but still rather good..if yolur not gonna do wierd, you might want to employ ariel to assist with your next list...

At 07:40, Blogger Minka said...

Brian, once in a blue moon. Usually whne she has guests and needs pretending:)

neva, thank you sweetest of ladies!

Tim Rice, I appreciate almost any moment with them.

Square, this is a list of traits/facts and habits...noone siad anythign about weird. Now, I know you like to be square and all...but this meme had more of a circualr motion. I tried to be edgy though just for you ;)

At 09:10, Blogger brian said...

Morning Minka,

Part seven is up. That must be awkward when she calls.

So what is on the agenda today? How is the flipper? Has it snowed yet? *evil grin*

At 11:20, Blogger Doug said...

He was the first male movie star to achieve success as a female impersonator and collie.

At 11:23, Blogger brian said...

Morning Lassie,

Oh is that you Doug?

At 12:07, Blogger Logophile said...

I'll take it!

Nice list, well done, and I will refrain from mocking your dwarf feet.
Just cuz I loves ya

At 13:03, Blogger FelineFrisky said...

Minka - What does your penguin avatar say? On it's tummy? Too small & fast to read. Hmph. D

At 13:45, Blogger Jamie Dawn said...

I'm Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!! I really am! I had a bowl of them for breakfast this very morning. I admit that I am addicted. I don't plan to seek help for it.

You are an interesting, intelligent, funny person.
I'm sure you got all the wit & brains, and your siblings were left with the remnants. Try and not laugh too much at their expense. They all have to live up to their big sister. To them, I'm sure, you are larger than life...
even if your feet and ears are not that large.

EEeewww Hobbit feet are big and hairy!! I'm glad you don't have those!!!!

At 14:11, Blogger Minka said...

Brian, I´ll swing over rigth after teh dentist *shivers*


Brian, thank you!

Logo, I will forever be grateful. Although I sorta like my tinyness in some areas. the rest of me is good though, I´ll show ye! :)

FF, it says: "Fat penguin!"
"Just trying to break the
Jamie, that was so sweet. (I love my siblings and the "they turned out ok. NOt well, but ok!" is more reflective for me raising them, than their character;))
You balance out Doug! makes me feel better!

At 14:37, Blogger snavy said...

LOL at "No, I am not a hobbit! "

At 16:01, Blogger Minka said...

snav, it was important to me to point it out! :) people are easily confused :)

At 18:16, Blogger brian said...


So how was the dentist? *shudders*

I left you a comment about Sam. Hope it doesn't make things more muddled. :)

At 21:21, Blogger Kyahgirl said...

Yep, that´s me. Take it or leave it!

definitely take it!
Its always nice to learn more about my favorite penguin.

About those Shrek ears...you don't make candles out of the wax like he does, do you? That would be a bit unnerving, to say the least!

At 00:01, Blogger Minka said...

Brian...he was very nice ;)

kyahgirl, nope I don´t do that. It has occured to me once, but I couldn´t come up with enough material to work it *grins*

At 03:23, Anonymous Joel said...

Wow...you have become a machine cranking out these posts! Well done! For the record...limited exposure to cocoa puffs but as I recall they are quite good.

At 11:00, Blogger Minka said...

Joel, look who´s back. *celebration dance*

I think you've got more takers than leavers here. Myself included of course. Just catching up and always love to read anything that lets me know a little more about my blogging buddies. Very cute meme.

So a spa gift certificate for a manicure/pedicure would be out of the question I guess.
