Tag - isn't that the dangly bit on the end of a piece of clothing at the consignment store?

This Easter Monday I've been relaxing. Truth be known, I crashed yesterday like a landslide of rock. It's been about 2 weeks of "up at 5, to bed... whenever..." and that takes its toll - even this Turtle is moving a little slower today.

Over at Expat Traveller, I've been tagged, once again.

Rules and Regulations:

1. Reveal six weird facts/things/habits about yourself and then tag six people.

2. Leave a "You're Tagged!" comment to let the people you have tagged know they have to reveal six things (or the entire blogosphere will explode and it will be their fault).

3. Leave me a comment letting me know that you have completed your mission (if you have chosen to accept it!)

Tags are things you're either in to, or not, so as the rules state I'm required to tag an additional 6, feel free to participate, or not as the spirit moves you.

Six things about Turtle...
1. I'm fiercly loyal. If you are my friend, I've chosen you to be my friend because I see value in you. As my friend, you are deserving of my respect and loyalty. I will stand by my friends - and remain friends for years... and years... and years....

2. "Dump and Run" is one of my worst habits. Running in, dumping what's in my hands - just wherever - and running on to the next thing. All it takes is two or three D&Rs to make the house look disaterous!

3. Taking what time there is. An industry colleague told me once that things take as long as you've got. If you HAVE 2 hours, it will take 2 hours. If you have 20 minutes you will get it done in 20 minutes. I find myself doing this - and recognising I can get the same thing done in much less time if the motivation is there.

4. It takes me FOREVER to learn something new - especially if it's coordination related. "Repetition is the mother of skill" is my saviour statement! Once I "get it", I've got it for life. Very frustrating in the process though!

5. When the "going gets tough" I've often looked for an easier alternative than slugging it out to get through. Strangely, as I age, I've discovered that beating down the brick wall isn't always as tough as I had once believed.

6. My intuition is strong. That "feeling" you get about a situation - the "spidey sense" as it were - has always been just sort of... "there".

I did that meme last week:

:) Thanks for tagging me.

As you already know, #4 resonates with me too -- except that I don't think that I get it for life any more. Things on my mind right at the moment, but I will bear the tag in mind. Be patient with me. :)

Nice going, Dave.

Dave I love the D&R's one.... I'm scared to know what your house looks like. On the other hand, I teach the D&R technique daily to tweens who just don't understand that doing it right now is so much easier than spending all afternoon when you could be playing to clean it up....

Thanks for participating. :)
