page contents Tagged and proud of it! | mummy rates it

You heard it here first. I’ve been tagged. No, not the ankle-chain ASBO type affair but a blogging game where one blogger tags another (or in this case 11 bloggers) and they have to answer questions and they in turn ask another 11 to answer some more.

Out and proud: I have played game of the week

My sticker, well it was Noah's but it's mine now. So there.

Still with me? myfunnymummy said I was ‘it’. Does it sound like stuff of the playground? A bit? Good!

Just the other day I asked my son what game he had played to earn him the sticker ‘I have played the game of the week’. It turned out he’d played Stuck In The Mud. Then, just as I was drifting off on a sea of nostalgia, remembering Kiss Chase and What’s The Time Mr Wolf – WHAMMO – I got tagged!

So you’ll understand why it’s now me who is now proudly sporting the ‘I played the game of the week’ badge. Yes, the shoppers in Tesco may give me strange looks, giggle behind my backs and mutter ‘she’s a bit old for that’ but do I care. No sireee. There aren’t many times in your late-thirties when you can confidently proclaim ‘I am IT!’

Are you still with me? Below is a list of all the lovely bloggers I have tagged. If you’re on this list and are wondering why or how I found you and that you don’t know me from Adam you are nearly right. At some point or other you have interacted with me so let’s build on that by you answering my rather silly questions! Tag me back if you like – that’ll teach me!

The Rules

You must post these rules.
Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.

These are the questions from myfunnymummy

1. What is your favourite word? Why?
My favourite word is pyjamas. I like the sound of it and I like wearing them. I get very upset when I forget them. I slip into them as early and out of them as late as possible. On the contrary, my least favourite word is mushroom. I do not like it. I do not like them. Everything about them stinks!

2. How would you like to be remembered?
Often and even by those with Alzheimer’s

3. Define ‘smile’.
It’s something I do when I have been amused, when I am thinking something naughty or to disguise the fact that I’m really livid and if I didn’t smile as a means of deflection I’d have probably pinned the nearest person up against a wall and be plucking their eyeballs out.

4. You’re locked in a refrigerator. Discuss.
If I’m lucky it’d be a really great fridge, stocked up with chocolate, cream cakes and mousses. However, if it was my own fridge, which I’d struggle to fit in even if I did the 30 day shred for 30 years I’d be sharing shelf space with past sell-by date yogis, Tupperware dishes filled with food from 2 weeks ago and bags of salad with slushy bits on the bottom. Reading that has made me realize I really do need a fridge clear-out.

5. If you were a room in a house, which would you be and why?
Oooh that’s a hard one. If I say kitchen I sound like a 1950s housewife, if I say lounge I sound like a lard-ass who watches Jeremy Kyle all day, if I say bathroom like I’ve got a bowel condition and if I say bedroom like I’m some kind of nymph. So I’ll say hallway – as that leads to every room in the house and is the first thing you step into and the last thing you step out of before you leave. That makes no sense whatsoever but it’s an answer!

6. Where do you feel most at ease?
On the sofa of an evening. Underneath the blanket that my grandma knitted.

7. In a fight, who would win: clergyman or ombudsman?
Clergy. Sure to be a secret psycho with a BIG weapon under his robe. Oh, Matron!

8. Painting or photograph?
Photograph. I can’t draw for toffee.

9. You have to pick: bird poos on you or accidentally swallow a small insect?
I’ve ‘done’ both. Definitely swallowing a small insect. It’s less distressing for me (sod the insect), easier to clean up (gulp) and fewer people notice/laugh/get grossed out.

10. Share a quote to live by.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.

11. Do you really want to answer another question?
Oh please I’d love a hundred more.

If so a) What is your mother’s maiden name?* (b) Where do you keep your bank details?*
You are a joker myfunnymummy, you really are. But seriously, I do know how I can get you some money out of Nigeria just email me…

Now, I’m sure that was really interesting for you – up there with a tax return maybe? Now it’s your turn. If you’ve been tagged here are your 11 questions:

1. Yesterday was World Book Day – if you could choose one book to be buried with what would it be?
2. Marmite. Love it or hate it?
3. A new animal has been discovered and it is a cross between an elephant, a chicken and a goldfish. You are chosen to name it. What do you call it?
4. Times are tough at Cadbury HQ and they are going to stop producing either Cream Eggs or Caramels. Which should get the chop?
5. Pick a word that describes you first thing in the morning.
6. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
7. Dogs or cats?
8. You are walking to the shops when you find a £20 note on the ground. Do you bend over and pick it up straight away or walk past and work out how to do it on the sly?
9. The Queen’s motorcade is about to pass you when suddenly her Maj stops and pulls over. She winds down the window as says ‘Oi, I’ve got a spare OBE to give away’. She asks what your special ‘service’ is. You say ‘I should get an OBE for services to…’
10. Bath or shower?
11. And finally… are you ever going to play ‘tag’ again?

Thank you and I can’t wait to read your answers. Hope they’re not too tricky. I actually found thinking up the questions harder!

  2. Done it! Well, done a little version of it, as just did the Blogger’s Dozen meme a couple of weeks back!! Thanks for tagging me, though the cruelty of the question about either having to lose creme eggs or caramels was almost too much for me.

    • Wowzers you are quick, woman! Thanks and yes, sorry about the Cream Egg. I’m sorry it was such a hard hitting question but as next in line to take over from Jeremy Paxman I need to get used to ‘grilling’ people. Happy for you to tag me and do the same! I’m off to read your now…. xxx
