Three Things

I've been tagged by Cheryl!

Three names I go by:
1. Doris
2. Granny
3. Outside of blogging my name has never been shortened. Used wrongly maybe, but I've never had a cute shortened version, or a nickname, affectionately given to me. I feel deprived!

Three screen names I have had:
1. I'm not getting off to a good start here....
2. ... do you know that some people do web searches....
3. ... on screen names and come up with some interesting stuff!

Three physical things I like about myself:
1. my 2 caesarian scars as they are neat and tiny but say so much
2. the scar on my foot (another talking point and the story always makes people whince in a very satisfying way for me!)
3. left ventricle valve

Three physical things I don't like about myself:
1. Not tall enough
2. tummy - might be small but I've always had a tum
3. Slight double chin but son calls it puppy fat LOL

Three parts of my heritage:

2. Sunday Girl - Blondie
3. Don't stop me now - Queen

Three things I want in a relationship:
1. Love
2. Honesty
3. Enthusiasm

Three LIES:
1. I am a highly respected intellectual with answers to the world's problems
2. I am a sex kitten who wears only pearls
3. I am a liar

1. I try
2. I procrastinate
3. Sometimes I do well

Three physical things about the opposite sex that appeal to me:
1. upper arm (doesn't have to be muscley - it is just erogenous!)
2. cheeks
3. bottom

Three of my favorite hobbies:
1. blogging
2. cooking (yeah - it's a hobby and not a chore!)
3. driving a car

Three things I want to do really badly now:
1. read my bank statements that have lots of zeros in my favour
2. have a cup of tea
3. see how else I can squander my three wishes

Three careers I've considered:
1. Nursery Nurse (done it)
2. Educational Psychologist (started higher education for it)
3. Cook on a building site (done it)

Three places I want to go on vacation:
1. Japan
2. Australia
3. Siberia

Three kid's names I like:
1. Zoe (with an umlaut)
2. Samuel
3. Beatrice

Three things I want to do before I die:
1. Why limit myself to three...
2. ... three more things...
3. ... or three new things? Drats, I've squandered another three things!

Three ways that I am stereotypically a boy:
1. impassive and unemotional
2. lack of femininity
3. facial hair ... OK, maybe not... I have one chin hair

Three ways that I am stereotypically a girl:
1. caring and very emotional
2. boobs
3. hips

Three celebrity crushes:
1. Karl Malden (I jest ye not!)
2. Marily Monroe
3. Mae West

Three people that I would like to see post this meme:

2. Hell on Heels
3. MattyD

And anyone else, I dub thee as chosen :-)

Love it.
Love your songs, too.
Sorry I cheated and put emotional qualities for men instead of physical ones, but my libido is in the deep freeze this week. In a straightjacket.

Nice answers Doris!

Great answers - "I am a sex kitten who wears only pearls" - you put this in the lie section by mistake.

Great answers! Don't Stop Me Now-what a tune, me and the girls have that on our home made getting ready to go out CD. "I'm having such a good time..." Gonna be singing that all day now lol!

Everyone says that the joy of driving will fade with time but I keep telling them for me it won't because I've always had this thing for driving so was glad to see driving a car as one of your favourite hobbies! It's one of mine too now I have passed :-)

DD for Darling Doris or Dearest Doris should be a nice pet name for you.

Pass it on Mr. Doris.

My father called my mother "D" for Dearest.

Thanks for tagging me sweetie..
Tried to come up with answers as good as yours, not sure I succeeded tho. Actually some of these questions are kinda hard for a guy who likes to think of himself as a girl...or maybe I'm a a girl locked inside a...or a soul drifting across genders like a little floaty cross gendery thing...er...
