Magnificent 7 Ps.

Gypsy (see her blog on my sidebar) has nominated me to do this Meme. Seven things about me that start with P.

Okay, here goes...

PERFECTIONISM...no, I don't subscribe to that. I'm the first to admit that I make mistakes, however that does not mean I don't try to do my very best at whatever it is I'm doing at that time.

PETTINESS...I can be, but I try to rise above that, because it's not a nice trait to have.

PARALYTIC...I have been in my younger years, but I think I've got a heap more sense now. Besides which, I don't like the morning after feeling...

PRIDE...not that which comes before a fall, but I take pride in my lovely grandchildren and their achievements.

PEDANTIC...one of my worst traits...especially when it comes to grammar and English as she is spoke. People who mispronounce words, eg, negosiate instead of negotiate, asseptable instead of acceptable, ecspecially instead of especially...I could go on. It drives me nuts!!!!

PETS...I love all animals but CATS have to be my absolute favourites, as those of you who have been reading this blog for the last year and a bit may suspect.

POFFERTJES...I'm not sure if I've spelt it right, but I adore eating these little Dutch doughnuts hot with maple syrup and icing sugar.

Well, there you go...those are my Ps. Now I'm supposed to pick five people but I'm going to cheat and open it up to whoever wants to do this meme. Have fun...heheh!

Hey Robyn... a perfectly proper, purposely put, published present profile. ;)

Puss-in-Boots said...

Oh well done, Lee...very precise Ps!

Gypsy said...

Now I'm not going to be Pedantic about this but you were supposed to use the P words I used.....lol. I love it when people break the rules :)

I liked your "P" words better anyway. What the hell was Position meant to mean anyway?????

I just wanted to say that i made myself a rule after I turned 60!! I figured that once I got there that I could speak ENGLISH in anyway that i wanted...if i messed it up...well I messed it up!! I was over 60 and who cared anyway!! smile!! Those are some P words..some I would have to look up...Smile!!
Blessings to you..Sandy

I would have written almost the same (I have not (yet) grandchildren) and pedantic I am too when it concerns languages and especially a correct writing. Sometimes when I read blogs my hairs stand up when I see the spelling of some words ! I mean it's not my mothertongue but I do an effort to write correctly but what I see there sometimes is horrendous !

My neighbours are also very nice. One of them keeps our cats since 30 years and with the other I went to Egypt.

Why d so many people get so bent out of shape by words, be it the spelling or pronouncing, pedantic is certainly right.

Good job, Robyn! I believe that I would really have to strain to come up with 7 "ps" about me.
