Three for the road

Was it Elvis who sang, "One for the money, two for the show, three for the... now go go go!" Yeah, I think it was him all right. Blue suede shoes, right? Anyway, Giddy Tiger passed me the baton for this tag of threes. Everything comes in threes for this tag. And I thought I'd do it a little differently this time. Anything different?

Three things that scare me are
1. Horror/slasher/supernatural movie flicks - Nuh-uh. I ain't going to no cinema and paying good money to freak myself out!
2. Reptiles and creepy crawlies - This is why I would never make a good contestant on Fear Factor.
3. My overactive imagination - How else can you describe being frightened by Jaws and Ghostbusters? Okay, okay... so I was three at the time. I was convinced that ghosties lurked in my room and had nightmares about being eaten by sharks.

Three people who make me laugh
1. Me - Haha. I'm so funny I crack myself up!
2. My dad - He and I share the same sense of humor so we frequently share jokes that only he and I can understand.
3. That someone - *smile*

Three things I love
1. My parents - But they don't exactly qualify as things, right? *grin*
2. My car - It takes me places that I could never have gone to without it. How could I have gone so many years without my car?
3. My Internet connection - Never, ever leave my side, okay? Okay.

Three things I hate
1. My job - Not the work, just the servitude part of it. It sucks.
2. The evil stepmother She who cannot be named - Need I say more?
3. Rude, pushy, impatient people - Ugh! All classified as idiots under Zewt's post here.

Three things I don't understand
1. Why me? - Why? Can this question ever be answered...
2. The people running the government - I don't have the mind of a politician so I cannot understand them.
3. Why money is so important - To the point that it becomes the overwhelming and driving force of so many people's lives.

Three things on my desk
1. My computer - How else can I blog in office? *wink*
2. My diary - To keep track of boss.
3. My telephone - So that boss can yell at me over the phone.

Three things I am doing right now
1. Doing this meme - If not how to answer, right?
2. Thinking of what to eat tomorrow - Meeting with ex-college mates. Hopefully no FFK tomorrow!
3. Wanting to sleep - Even though I napped just now. It's my body's Friday night conspiracy...

Three things I want to do before I die
1. Complete that list of 1,001 things to do before I die - Hahaha... get to fit in a lot of stuff this way.
2. Tell my loved ones I love them - Because I believe you can never say it too few (or too many!) times.
3. Make sure I leave no loose ends behind - No one wants to tidy up your mess.

Three things I can do
1. Type really, really fast - So that I can churn out blog entries and paid posts quickly.
2. Sing a song I've heard for a few times only - If got lyrics, I just need to hear it once or twice. If I have to memorize the lyrics, more times.
3. Mind-blog? - LOL!

Three things I can't do
1. Cycle - So please don't put me on a bike! I'll fall right off.
2. Sales - Never was the type to sell ice to the Eskimos. And I find it hard to say no to those salespeople too.
3. Draw or paint - Stick men are the best I can do. I think that passed for modern art in the cavemen era, no?

Three things I think you should listen to
1. God - Because He's God, that's why.
2. Yourself - Because other than God, you know what's best for yourself.
3. Me - Because I can give you really good advice. Heh.

Three things you should never listen to
1. Toxic people - You know, the kind who never have anything good to say about anything and everything but just delight in tearing you down.
2. Politicians - Because you never know how much of what they say are empty promises or hot air.
3. Me - How much do I know about you anyway? LOLOL!

Three shows I watched as a kid
1. Thundercats - Thundercats.... Hoooooooo! I wanted to be Wiley Kat/Kit. And I thought my mum was Cheetara, my dad was Lionel. Haha.
2. Smurfs - Does any one remember those little blue people anymore?
3. Sesame Street - The Barney of that time. Every parent who wanted their kid to be smart made them watch that show. All together now... "How to get to Sesame Street...."

Three people I am tagging
1. You - If you have NBTD
2. You - If you have acute blogivitis
3. You - If you like tags

narrowband said...

I also want to do a 'til-death-do-us-part' with my internet connection. It's like so part of me weh... :p

I still can believe you cant cycle a bike ;p Oh I can't do sales too. I suck at convincing people :(

ehon said...

rinnah said...

giddy tiger: 5 no tagged hugs for you!!!

Hehehe... I like memes, so it was no sweat doing this one!

Yes, I grew up on Thundercats. I even wanted a Snarf as a pet! LOL!

You too? Let's go karaoke then!

**********
chen: 3 no blind mouse hugs for you!!

Did the blind mouse trick some 2 tags back. Cannot use it all the time, after people run away then how? Kekekekekeke!

I would like to learn how to cycle, but got no bike and no one to teach me! *grin*

Hahaha... yes, I fully charged it last night and already in my bag!

**********
angel: Was it really? No wonder I saw a number of articles about it on the Net.

Happy weekend to you too!

Yup, no pain, no gain. But didn't gain anything from my leap of faith. *sigh*

**********
narrowband: I can't live without my Internet! Muahahahahaha. *imaginnes self desperately clinging on to the Internet connection*

Heh, a lot of people can't do sales. No matter what the gurus say that in everyday life, you are "selling" something or other even when you don't know it, I still can't sell! LOL!

**********
ehon: Yeah, is it such a big deal? *grin* I don't know what I'm missing, so... Heh.

NBTD - Nothing Better To Do. What did you think it was? *grin*

LB said...

HOWCOME?

may said...

yes, still remember the Smurfs... and Smurfette!

rinnah said...

l b: I D U N N O ! ! !

**********
may: Smurfette was so cute the way she would blush, yea?

Simple American said...

And Elvis also said, "Thank you. Thank you very much."

Now I knows you better. Yay!

Ewww, Fear Factor. I can never watch that. Yuck!

Money is important, cuz I need enough to buy a plane ticket to come visit you.

Need to take care of those loose ends. Elsewise you become a ghost scaring three year olds.

So I am waiting for advice now. :) I chat back so you can know more, ok?

rinnah said...

simple american: Yeah! And that phrase... Elvis has left the building!

Aww.. you don't watch Fear Factor? I love it! But not when I'm eating. Heh.

Yes, either you come to me or I go to you...

I see you went and got your will sorted out over the weekend. No loose ends there!

Hehehe... I thought you should be the one giving me advice? My advice would be... work just enough to get by. That's how I feel right now. Not very good advice, this. Heh.
