BitterSweet

I have mixed emotions about this, because although I don't really feel up to a meme (my sincere gratitude goes out to Torrance), I have haven't posted in almost a week, and NoR has the tendency to open the famous can-o-Whoop Ass when that much time has lapsed. So, with that being said...

Here are the rules:1. link the person who tagged you.2. mention the rules in your blog…3. tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours4. tag 6 following bloggers by linking them. leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged

1. I played the violin for 5 years and quit because the "B" I was earning was screwing with my 4.0 GPA.

2. I was born with an umbilical hernia and 6 fingers on each hand; my oldest son with 6 fingers on each hand and 2 additional "nipular objects (It just doesn't seem right saying a boy has nipples---what is the medical term anyone of you nerds out there???)," and my younger son with 6 fingers on each hand...and that damned umbilical hernia!

3. I wear a size 11 shoe.

4. I visited the zoo for the first time at the age of 18.

5. I have owned a total of 7 cars in my 13 1/2 years of driving.

6. When I was around 8 years old, I coerced my cousins into smoking cigarettes and making a pretend "joint" by rolling the ashes and tobacco up in paper. We ignited the carpet in my Grandmother's friend's condo, doused the fire with Kool-Aid (red), and dragged her deaf, sleeping son over and placed the lighter in his hand.

NoR, Heather, Susan, Gyuss, MrT, and Qinges...you're it!

I'll even forgive you for tagging me.
But damn, I was looking forward to taking out some aggression by whupping yo' ass.

NoRegrets said...

And why didn't you say you like to talk on the cell phone and have really large knockers that pop out of your dress? Oh, that's right, that's why you have the photo!

Tera said...

M. Robert Turnage said...

All I can imagine is your family watching "The Princess Bride" and secretly rooting for Count Rugan.

Tera said...

MrT~I'm sure I would totally appreciate that comment more...had I seen the Princess Bride!

M. Robert Turnage said...

Oh man, that is NOT something you should admit on the Internet, lest people like CyberD send you messages about how you have no cred with him anymore.

Count Rugan is one of the villains - he is a six-fingered man. It is a pretty good movie.

Tera said...

MrT~Damn! **Note to Self** Thank you for cluing me in!

P.S. Now that is HILARIOUS!

NoRegrets said...

Tera, it's one of those movies you have to see...
how do you type with six fingers?
I'm glad it's Mr. Kool Aid that made it to the photo for the post....

Tera said...

NoR~l.m.a.O!!!!! They were removed in infancy!

Tha BossMack TopSoil said...

That Zoo thing isn't that bad.

Nance said...

RE: #6

See you in Hell. LOL. (All the fun people will be there.)

Churlita said...

i still have to do mine. Maybe I'll get to it tonight. I'm super weird, but everyone already knows all my quirks.

NoRegrets said...

You drunk yet?

Nina said...

I had no idea you could have gone to prison for arson...bad, bad, bad.

Tera said...

Bossmack~WELCOME! I'm with you on that one...those who know me know that I don't do wild life!!!

Nance~(Evil grin)

Churlita~Can't wait to see your responses!

NoR~Maybe by the end of the 1st quarter of the 2nd game tonight!

Nina~And you think you know someone huh?

Now, this isn't just because I am a Comics Geek Extraordinaire (although it don't hurt), but what I am about to say is 100% true;

DejaVu is exactly dreams that we have of our futures. Most, I'd say 99% of them, we don't remember when we wake up and only when the dream comes true do we get that "I've done this before" feeling. Because we have. In our dreams.

I've no scientific papers to back me up, and this viewpoint has nothing to do with my profession (not IT). But because on at least two occasions, the last being about a month ago, I starkly remembered the dream while having the Deja Vu of it in real life. First came the feeling then the memory, and that confirmed it for me.

So I would say your clairvoyancy is something we all have, but do not tap into as well as you do.

Why do I post this here instead of under the last thread?

Because your six-fingeredness, and your childrens', rang a bell for me.

In my email address is the term "New Mutant". Like an X-Man, I think you were born with "something extra". Not just fingers, but a more developed area of your brain where I believe we all have the Deja Vu factory working. The fact that you gave birth to two children who had the same physical "extra something" shows you have a strong genetic potential for, and pardon if the word sounds crude, "mutation". (If you read as many X-Men comics as I do, you'd see this for the near-worship that it is.)

So hat's off to you Lady Futura! Your room is located on the third floor, right next to Wolverine's. If you hear him having a bad dream late at night, don't try to wake him. :-)

NoRegrets said...

Oh, Tera, I thought you'd have a new post by now... Oh, but wait, it hasn't been a week. OK, I'll put away the can.

Tera said...

Alan~Wow...very intriguing! And aside from the fact that if I had 100 boys they would ALL have the extra digit because Polydactily is pretty much a dominant gene on the X chromosome...I totally love the explanation! I also heart the name Lady Futura! Thanks, you're awsome!

NoR~Yes, please, put it away...may weapons are useless against it!

Alan said...

Oo, genetics knowledge! All this and brains too!

Tera said...

Alan~Why, you made me blush my dear :)

NoRegrets said...

Lady Futura! Woo hoo!

Tera said...

NoR~I know right?!

Alan said...

Hey, "NoRegrets" works as a superhero's name too! I picture you as a streetsmart heroine in cargo pants with a wifebeater on and your knuckles taped for guilt-free fighting. BIFF! POW!! while Lady Futura stands in the shadows with a placid and serene voice; "Beware the thug on your left, NoR" she'd say, drawing on her clairvoyance, "He's carrying a taser."

Tera said...

Alan~Why this could allow for NoR and I to assume entirely new identities! LOL! Total amusement!

Alan said...

But of course! You can't have the bad guys knowing where to find you!

NoRegrets said...

How did you know what I look like and how I dress??? YOU are clairvoyant .

NoRegrets said...

It;s been a week dear....

Tera said...

Alan~The "bad guys" always know where to find me.

NoR~He's good huh?

NoR~Yeah, yeah, whateva!
