People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*

The Rule Of Three

As promised, the meme that Cat tagged me with on Saturday, because I know you've been sat on the edge of your seat, all blinkin day waiting for this.

Three (ok, four) Things That Scare Me:

Being involved in a car crash.
Losing my sight and therefore the ability to read. An audiobook just wouldn't be the same.
Being attacked by a lion.
Oh My God Childbirth.

(I couldn't pick between childbirth and the lion thing)

Three People Who Make Me Laugh:

My best mate.
Dave Gorman.
Bill Bryson.

Three Things I Love:

Reading a great book for the first time. Then re-reading it.
Springtime. Oh the joys!
Handbags. Just because.

Three Things I Hate:

Spelling mistakes by people who should know better. There's just no excuse.
TYPING WITHOUT REALISING YOUR CAPS LOCK IS ON and having to re-type, dammit.

Three Things I Don't Understand:

How on EARTH George W Bush ended up as the President of the USA.
The fact that any rubbish blowing about our street always ends up in my garden.
How so many beggars can afford Paul Smith jackets.

Three Things On My Desk:

An empty tea cup.
A tiny ceramic owl bought for me by my sister, whom I have named Hedwig.
A tube of Dove Regenerating Night Cream for my INSANELY DRY hands.

Three Things I'm Doing Right Now:

Listening to the purring sound of my cat, who is sitting on the desk watching me. (What is it with the watchers in this house?)
Wishing I had another cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit.
Resisting the urge to lop off all my hair with the kitchen scissors. It's driving me maaad.

Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die:

Write a book.

Three Things I Can Do:

Pick out a spelling mistake at 20 paces.
Kill a houseplant in record time.
Make a mean lasagne.

Three Things I Can't Do:

Tell my left from my right.
Play Scrabble.

Three Things I Think You Should Listen To:

The advice your parentals give you.
The news.
The doctor, when he tells you not to interfere with the wound.

Three Things You Should Never Listen To:

Anyone who says 'I'm not being funny but...' or 'I'm not racist but...'.
That L'Oreal ad with Eva Longoria - are we honestly supposed to believe she colours her hair herself?
I'm with Cat - Keane. Or the Manic Street Preachers. Yawn.

Three Things I'd Like To Learn:

How to drive. In my own time and when I am ready, thankyouverymuch.
How to play the piano. Sadly I have small hands with short fingers so I don't think it'll ever happen.
How to grow my own fruit and vegetables.

Three Favourite Foods:

Homemade lasagne.
Hot buttered toast.
M&S Very Berry Cheesecake.

Three Shows I Watched As A Kid:

Stoppit and Tidyup.

I'm not going to tag anyone (except, of course, the fragrant and lovely Drama Queen) so if you're stuck for a topic today, knock yourself out.

Hold up. I was joking.

A fellow spelling Nazi! Today is looking up!

Yikes. I am hiding from you two.

Although sometimes the European keyboards are to blame. Sometimes.

Bad spelling, grammar and punctuation are my biggest gripes. We should start a patrol...
