Excuses, excuses


An excuse for a self-made meme.

1. I swear because....I like to use the English language effectively and creatively and it fills in the gaps when I have forgotten what I'm talking about.

2. I smoke because...I need time to breathe.

3. I drink lots of tea because....I need the exercise.

4. I am a vegetarian because....I am lazy (noodles take 3 minutes).

5. I am a witch because....black is very slimming, spell making makes you seem mysterious and I like dancing about without me drawers on.

6. I shave my legs because...then my bikini line knows where to stop

7. I eat chocolate because...it is essential for healthy hair, nails, skin, beautiful feet, smooth knees and sparkly eyes.

8. I drink because...I know it makes you happy to think that I now see you as a very attractive person.

9. I am happy because...miserable people piss me off and I don't want to be pissed off with meself because I am already pissed off with them.

10. I love to laugh because...I can

I tag.......every bugger I know.

This is great! I especially like the reason you drink. How charitable and self-sacrificing of you. And yes, laughing because you can -- it doesn't get any better than that.

Atyllah said...

Erm, yes, but how does the tag work for those who don't drink, don't smoke, don't witch...

By the way - I'm with you all the way on # 9!

The Moon Topples said...

I second Attylah's question. I don't posess many of the attributes you describe. Am I thusly immune from the tag?

Minx said...

No, not immune - make yer own up - you must have some vices - surely!

L>T said...

very good! I think i can do this one, even. as soon as I exhaust my current post.

me said...

i found vegetarian instant noodles :]

mutleythedog said...

You are very self sacrificing - maybe you should join the Samaritans? You could visit me here in Bridport!

Roberta said...

Alright. I'll bite.


1. I swear because..By fuck I can.


2. I smoke because...It's almost illegal. And I adore almost Illegal.

3. I drink lots of tea because its good! Cleans out the kidneys@

4. I am a vegetarian because....Whose a vegitarian? Not Moi. I love a good piece of red hot meat.

I am a witch because.... I am not a witch...so I don't have an answer to this ...except that my fingers don't want to work..and I can't seem to stand up.

6. I shave my legs because...Rug burn.


7. I eat chocolate because...I can't help it.

8. I drink because the taste and the fruit of the nectar is sublime ...and I can't resist a bit of the sublime now and then.

9 .I am happy because That is my nature.

10. love to laugh because it makes the people around me laugh, and the people around them...and on, and on, and on.

Tag this!

Caroline said...

You're so lovely.

Minx said...

Great excuses, Roberta. Particularly like 2. and 6.
I tried to give up smoking once but found I had excused myself before I had started!

Samaritans? Heh! Prepare thyself, Bridport.

Caroline - you have never seen my 'winter' legs.

Marie said...

Interesting... I think I might have a go.

Gorilla Bananas said...

Another post which mentions witches. Interesting. Personally, I've got nothing against them. Miss Wilhelmina Witchiepoo could dance like a gorilla, and that's saying something.
Of course, a real witch would never make excuses for her vices. She would say: "I swear because I want to, and if you don't like it I'll turn you into a frog."

L>T said...

that was fun! I put it on my blog.

Minx said...

That's a good one, L>t, pot smoking, meat eater that you are! Be encouraged, Marie, excuse away.


"Another post which mentions witches. Interesting. Personally, I've got nothing against them."

That's good, GB, I've got nothing against gorillas.
I think your perception of the word witch, maybe entangled with gingerbread and yellow brick roads - maybe I should put you straight?

mutleythedog said...

What is this meme thing?

Gorilla Bananas said...

Oooooooooh! I sense I'm in the presence of a qualified witch with a PhD in necromancy. I'm gonna have to start showing you some respect, Minx. The last thing we apes need is bad blood with the broom-riders.

Shameless said...

you would be too shocked to see my rsponses to these! :)

Atyllah said...

I am a pure, decent and viceless chicken. Sigh. I guess that disqualifies me from this meme on the basis of being way too boring.

Saaleha said...

I don't swear, smoke, drink, dance knickerless....help! I'm seriously not normal! Or should that work the other way around??

Minx said...

Mutley - a meme is another word for 'I can''t think of a blog post today' - except when I do them.

Shameless, Atyllah and Saaleha - wot no vices? I don't think so.

Gorilla - respect is good, and it works both ways.

Debi said...

As a swearing, smoking, herb tea drinking, vegetarian, Jewish witchy-type, hairy-legged, chocolate-eating, barely-drinking (as opposed to bearly drinking), happy, laughing person ...

... I have no idea what this is all about.

Minx said...

You put a comma in the wrong place!

L>T said...

good lord! what kind of a blog have i stumbled on to?

Minx said...

A, err, creative one L>t?

Meloney Lemon said...

As Alastair Crowley said - 'do what you like' - but then he wor a baddun.

Minx said...

Heh.

L>T said...

Oh, so that's how it's done!

Debi said...

Scandalous! Slanderous! Where?
