Am I A Wierdo?........

Jo Beaufoix tagged me for this little meme where I have to share 7 random/and or wierd facts about me, and Mike (Mike's Homefront) tagged me for 8 things about me so, although I have probably told you everything by now, I'll combine the two and I'll give it a whirl. Here goes....


Here are the rules:
A). Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog…

B). Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself…

C). Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs…

D). Let each person know that they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog









1. I have a bent index finger (due to arthritis).

2. I was always in the school choir - now I can't sing for toffee!

3. I always know 'who did it' in 'who done its' before the end of the book or the film.

4. I sometimes have prophetic dreams.

5. There are certain words that I misread i.e. I see Shopfitters as Shoplifters.

6. I can smell snow before it snows.

7. As well as Reiki I have been attuned to Gaia Healing Modality.


I think most have you have done these meme's so I won't tag anyone. If you fancy having a go please feel free.

HERE'S A STORY WITH A MORAL:


A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa , taking her faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company. One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch. The old poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!" Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap the old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?" Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the leopard, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"

Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The young leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine! Now, the old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says... "Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!

Moral of this story.... Don't mess with old farts...age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill! Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience.

Bankerchick said...

I need to embroider that saying on a pillow. I am back and ok just a little tired. I have a new post today

Akelamalu said...

That's good to know cg :)

Welcome back bankerchick I missed you. x

Linda said...

Nope - nothing weird about you that I can see! I can smell snow myself though people often think that's just crazy.

Loved the old poodle/leopard story! Would love to have seen the look on the face of that monkey!

I heard that saying Americanized into "Old age and craftiness will overcome youth and enthusiasm". Same thing! Whenever anyone young asks me "Do you know everything?" I answer "Yes, and never question it again!" I would rather be Merlin, instead of King Arthur anyday!

Dumdad said...

Cool poodle!

MarmiteToasty said...

I to have a good sense of smell, I can smell when a nipper has trod in dog poo from 2o yards :)

Akelamalu said...

Ooo a fellow snowsniffer eh Linda! :)

What a great reply to "Do you know everything"! Buffalo ;)

Cool Poodle indeed Dumdad.

There's no mistaking that smell is there Marmie? LOL

Misty Dawn said...

I tend to do #3 a lot too!

Annelisa said...

Interesting you can smell snow - I can too. If you have two identical glasses of water, and mix some salt in one of them, getting someone to mix them up and remember which one's which, can you pick out the one with salt in? A biology teacher at school said this wasn't possible, but I still managed to do it every time! :-)

Love the story about the poodle - wish I had that sort of quick thinking!

Miss Understood said...

Great story!

Hmmm. I've never tried to smell snow before. Tell me....what does it smell like? LoL.

Elween said...

love the story too."Bullshit and brilliance only come with age and experience." ha, kinda offensive but i like it.. :)

Flowerpot said...

I so agree with the moral of that story!!

Queenie said...

Thought I'd left a comment hear, it must be an age thing!
So do't mess with me He he!!

Cream said...

You're not weird at all, Akela! You're just aging with grace...

I love the story.

la bellina mammina said...

That's a good one - and as always, nice to know more and more about you, Akela! :-)

Gledwood said...

O that bloody word verification: do you know I get it on my blog all the time just because I like to link up key words like my "magickal guide to London" so people can click their way round ... they think all those http://urls are some type of spamming: the swines!

I did a "meme" very similar to this one only the number has crept up from 5 thru 6 (I've seen quite a few with 6 on my old bloghops) now into SEVEN odd things... It's gonna get to the point that even I run out of enough odd things about myself hahargh!

;->...

Akelamalu said...

Oh snap then Misty Dawn :)

You're only the second person I've met who can smell snow Annelisa. Now how do we describe the smell for MissU??? I've never tried the salt test - I'll give it a whirl.

It smells like snow Miss U - hell I don't know, but I always know when it's gonna snow because I can smell it! Annelisa may come up with a description.

Glad you enjoyed the story Elween and happy you weren't too offended by the language! x

Me too Flowerpot. :)

Ah well Queenie me darlin' you have just had another birthday. :)

Dear Cream thank you kind sir! xx

Thanks Bella glad you enjoyed it. :)

I'm running out of things to tell too Gleds :(

Mother of Invention said...

I always see chess and checkers as cheese and crackers.
I'd sing for toffee! HA! I'm diabetic but love sweet stuff! What a funny expression!

Nea said...

What a cute story, and a good moral also......my kids always wonder if I have eyes in the back of my head. I tell them no, I just have radar....

I also can smell snow.....people think me crazy, they say snow doesn't have a smell....I beg to differ, it certainly does.

Akelamalu said...

I can see why you would mistake chess and checkers for cheese and crackers MOI - I would too!

Oh a third snow sniffer Nea, we should start a club! :)

dodong flores said...
