Magnificent Sevens


The lovely gaelikkaa has tagged me and I’ve accepted the challenge to describe myself in seven words. Pfftt seven’s a small number right? Too easy! Then you get to number five… That’s when you start wondering if you need to take a personality quiz. Yes, I’m an idiot. Shall we start with that as my first descriptive word?

Honestly, it’s harder than it sounds. Pick the wrong words and you’ll have the government’s special forces knocking on your door.
 
Quirky
I have no idea how this happened… perhaps it’s more like a title, you know, like “Queen”.

 

Chocoholic

Did you know that this is now recognized as a real addiction by specialists?




Worrier
Need someone to worry about your house spontaneously combusting? I’m your girl ;)

 

Determined
Diana Palmer had TWO whole boxes of rejections before she was published. I’ll let you know when I can beat that ;)

 


Numerophobic
I don’t actually HAVE a fear of numbers but I’m only allowed one word and “mathematically challenged” is two (I can actually count – yes my mother is very proud). I do, however, HATE maths, hence my passing on a career in finance or banking.


Bookaholic
The books have almost an entire room to themselves. A normal person would probably sell them or throw them out *gasp* but the strange thing is that while I can’t remember where I put my keys I can usually remember a book just by skimming its blurb.
 


Competitive



 

To the point where I’m fascinated by people who aren’t. You DON’T want the shiny trophy? Seriously?



Now I can’t remember who has been tagged and who hasn’t (perhaps I should have said forgetful up there somewhere). So if you would like to take on the Magnificent Seven consider yourself challenged and remember your dueling pistols.

I leave you with this question: if you had to describe yourself (not what you do that’s cheating ;) ) in ONE word what would it be?

Lacey, I'm with you on quite a few of those. I'm hopeless at maths too and I'm also a bibliophile! Anyway, as to one word...can it be 'Ummmmmm?'??

Aideen said...

Trying to choose just one word to describe myself was so very difficult that the answer was right in front of me.

INDECISIVE.

Another interesting post Lacey, but you're keeping me from writing!!

Aideen.

Jackie! I can't believe I haven't come across the term bibliophile before! I love it :)

Hi Aideen! I'm a bad influence then :) I have to admit I could have used indecisive too - in GIANT capital letters.

Joanne Cleary said...

I love this and haven't been officially tagged so will have a go at my magnificent 7 next week :-)

Lacey Devlin said...

Consider yourself official tagged Joanne!

I've got another one coming that goes with the Honest Scrap award there but it's a bit more intimidating ;)

Suzanne said...

I was tagged for this - much harder than it sounds at first. And I've been tagged for Honest Scrap, too...will post that sometime next week, I hope (after I've given it a bit of thought).

:-)

Lacey Devlin said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one who struggled Suzanne :) I'll be keeping my eye out for your Honest Scrap post.

Great answers Lacey, very interesting and certainly a lot more concise than mine were!

Thanks Gaelikka :)

Coming in late to add: Oxymoron.
