Tagged - Over 25s and Five Things

Once again, in true Blogosphere style, I've been tagged, albeit indirectly. Two of the usual suspects with a "I tag anyone" trick.

Curses. They got me again.

Of course, being that so many of you actually expect it, I tag you all to do this, regardless of you actually doing it, or even WANTING to do it! Because I'm good like that.

Symptoms of Being Over 25
Stolen from Posh Totty

1. You leave clubs before the end to "beat the rush".
Hmmm sort of - though we leave early so we can bag the best cheeseburgers as they are being cooked.

2. You get more excited about having a roast on a Sunday than going clubbing the night before.
No, because I have to cook it.

3. You stop dreaming of becoming a professional footballer /basketball player / singer / dancer etc and start dreaming of having a son or daughter who might instead.
Never dreamed of being a professional anything, but I think the kids should be kind and become filthy rich for my benefit!

4. Before throwing the local paper away, you look through the property section.
Nope - I like to laugh at the lonely-hearts column.

5. All of a sudden, middle aged people are not 46, they are only 46.

6. Before going out anywhere, you ask whether there is anywhere to park.
Nope - non-driver!

7. Rather than throw a knackered pair of trainers out, you keep them because they'll be alright for the DIY or in the garden.
Knackered is knackered - I DO forget to throw old ones away, but I don't save them for anything.

8. You buy T-shirts without anything written on them.
Most of my Tee Shirts have *something* on them.

9. Instead of laughing at the innovations catalogue that falls out of the newspaper, you suddenly see both the benefit and money saving properties of most of the things that are in it.
No, I still laugh at them, especially the "shit collectable thing" that appears on the back. "Just 12 easy payments of £1million"

10. You start to worry about your parents' mental health.
No no, I know my mother is a mental.

11. You have more disposable income, but everything you want or need to buy costs between 200 and 500 quid.
Disposable Income - you're having a laaaaaugh!

12. You don't get funny looks when you buy a Disney video or a Wallace And Gromit bubble bath, as the sales assistant assumes they are for your children.
Never had funny looks regardless of my age!

13. Pop music all starts to sound the same.
It always has...

14. You opt for Pizza Express over Pizza Hut because they do a really nice half-bottle of house red.
Nooo, Pizza Hut is the only pizza.

15. You always have enough milk in.
I NEVER have enough milk in.

16. To compensate for the fact that you have little desire to go clubbing, you instead frequent trendy bars and restaurants in the mistaken belief that you have not turned into your parents.
I've never had much of a clubbing desire, and there are NO trendy bars or resturants around here!

17. While flicking through the TV channels, you happen upon C4's Time Team with Tony Robinson. You get drawn in. Grand Designs also appeals.
Hey, I use to watch Time Team all the time... No clue about the latter mind you ;)

18. The benefits of a pension scheme become clear.

19. You go out of your way to pick up a colour chart from B&Q.
Because there are people that allow me to chose colours based on what I see....

20. You wish you had a shed.
Actually, I wish I had a loft..

21. You have a shed.
Sort of - my shed is mid-collapsing, not water proof, has plants growing through the floor...

22. You actually find yourself saying "They don't make 'em like that anymore" and "I remember when there were only 4 TV channels" and "Not in my day...."
Only the last thing - I often rant and rave about the current teen-generation vs. my teen generation.

23. Radio 2 play more songs you know than Radio 1 - and Jeremy Vine has some really interesting guests on.
Radio 2?!

24. Instead of tutting at old people who take ages to get off the bus, You tut at rowdy school children.
Actually, I hate both groups equally. And always have.

25. When sitting outside a pub you admire their hanging baskets.
Helloooo, man. I struggle to keep my lawn under control!

26. You find yourself saying "is it cold in here or is it just me?"
I am rarely too cold indoors.
