Thurday Thirteen Ed 15

Thank you to Headmeister for the Header!

Thirteen Things...I get teased about

1. My spelling. I can spell medical terms such as oophorectomy and cholecystectomy but I misspell sattelyte and definately.

2. My pronunciation. I blame it on the fact that I was in that window of children who never got phonics, but who knows. At least my hubby has the same difficulty.

3. I make up words and use them frequently

4. My typing skills. I have gotten pretty fast with messaging and blogging but ask me to type a preprinted form and I am pretty slow. I got distracted in typing class by a really cute boy with blonde hair and green eyes. What can I say? That was 7 to 10th grade, it didn't seem that important back then.

5. My need to take a lot of things with me when I travel. What can I say other than I notice no one made fun of Rose, the girl on Titanic, when she showed up with everything from framed pictures to her own servants.

6. I carry a lot of stuff with me where ever I go. (Sometimes I am called bag lady) But I NEED my purse, my camera, my books and paper and pen, sometimes my computer. I cant stand being bored cause there is so much to do!

7. The amount of e-mails in my in box. I just cant keep up with them. I do searches for the important things, but I do have around 3000 to 4000 at any one time. I am sure that will get better, just give me time.

8. My junk. I have a lot of stuff. Once again what can I say, every object "could" be used at some point. I am working on this.

9. Making fun of something I have not been exposed to yet. I do not believe that most people are stupid, its just that they haven't had the opportunity to learn that particular thing yet. "I know what I know if you know what I mean"

10. Challenge my nursing knowledge (don't argue medical stuff with a nurse. If I don't know something I will tell you)

11. My lack of direction. I do not pay attention to where I am going unless I am driving. Just because you have driven me there 10 times doesn't mean I will know how to get there. There is so much going on in my mind, I just don't register the directions.

12. Things I have said in the past. I reserve the right to change my mind at any given point depending upon new information I may have acquired or just because my circumstances have changed

13. What I haven't been able to accomplish. I have a limited supply of energy and I work as hard as I can to get as much done as possible, but I am one of those people who need 8 to 9 hours of sleep and I wear out in the evening hours.

Okay that is all the "dirt" on me. However without those things I would not be me, so go ahead, poke fun. I am getting used to it. (Smiling)

Miranda said...

Great list!!

I get teased about stuff I said too...but usually because I forget what I said.

Happy Thursday Thirteen!!

Delena said...

Hey, making up words is a fun and wonderful pasttime! What would I do without "Crabbleslaw" (Apple & Cabbage coleslaw) and "Thingamahoozie" (an object for which I can't remember the name just now). Go forth, and invent many fun and interesting words! =)

Happy TT! And don't feel too bad about no sense of direction. At least your family doesn't call you The Eternal Lost Girl, lol! I feel your pain, hehe.

Stacitee said...

Glad to know these are the things that don't push your buttons. When I tease you I'll stick to the items on this list.

ancsweetnsassygal said...

I love your list, but especially #12. I think all women should be able to use that one whenever and where ever needed. Great TT.


I like to make up my own words...I find it to be fun.

I pack really well but I take a lot of things when I travel too.

I am told my purse is as heavy as a bowling ball. :-)

Barbara H. said...

Great list! I am like that with directions -- it doesn't stick with me unless I am driving. And my purse is ultra-heavy with all the stuff I might need. :)

Raggedy said...

Great list. I love made up words.
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
My TT is posted.
Have a wonderful day!
Happy TT'ing!

I get teased about being a clutz, never leaving the computer, forgetting everything even if it is on the calendar and I remembered it in the morning, lol. I also don't know my left from my right without thinking about it, lol, makes for interesting driving.
My week was bad, but not really. My husband and I were waiting to be approved in church ministry, and we got the vote today, so we are both in. So, either the attacks will get worse, or stop. But since we got our tax return we know God provided, so no reason to freak out.

Jill said...

I cannot laught at you because half of those thing apply to me!!!

TopChamp said...

Ha ha.... Not lauging at you - laughing WITH you. Promise x

I get teased about losing stuff.... but it's justified so I can't complain really!
