i have dragged my feet on this, something about the imposed list that made me coy but here it is:

ten turn ons

[some are general and some are sexual. you can decide which]

someone who can make me laugh, and I mean so that I almost wet myself.
generosity [and yes, that can include spending money on me]
intelligence
honesty and directness [is that one,or two?]
being tall and big [that’s two, sorry]
meat on the bones
a big, big warm smile
large hands
gentle mouth
a good listener
plus locket [special extra entry. a promise is a promise*]


ten turn offs

bad spelling
bad breath
racism
intolerance
mean [both nasty and tight]
thoughtlessness
childishness in an adult, [it’s ok in kids]
impatience
anger
someone who doesn’t understand I need to be able to breathe

* promise

now what do i do? i have to tag someone?

[looks around school yard, sees flash of yellow and red cape which twirls behind that tree over there. runs over, manages to catch capeman and gently and laughingly tap him on the shoulder

turns and brushes hair out of eyes. sees black and white stripes moving behind shelter shed. runs over and trips on asphalt. gets to feet bravely and looks at skinned knee. doesn't want anyone to see her cry, so she runs again, circles the shed from the other direction, so that clokey doesn't see her coming. thumps him on the back, laughing and shouting "you're it!"]

Wow, I have all ten if the turn ons, and none of the turn offs. Not.

Actually I have 5 or 6 of the turn ons (depending on your point of view), and 5 or 6 of the turn-offs (also depending on you point of view); the main one being acting childish as an adult. Hey, growing old is compulsory, growing up is optional!

I love your method of tagging people.

*is jealous of cloakey and capeman*

...mj said...

Indeed, that was the best tag ever! I wish I had tagged you with such verve!

MelbourneGirl said...

Roguemaze Central said...

I fit everything on your turn-off list. Does that mean its over for us?

MelbourneGirl said...

Monsieur Maze, you never had a chance

i'm sorry, but there it is

Cape Man said...

Mission accomplished.

MelbourneGirl said...

what mission capey?

your list?

Swifty said...

I can be extremely childish, but I think it's an asset. Of course, it depends on how you're defining it. As for impatience, I'm working on it. Ah well, guess I can't light everyones' candle.

Darcy said...

I'm going to have to employ spell check more often. It would appear I am turning everyone off.

MelbourneGirl said...

your spelling's ok darcy

i have you down here in my list of the grade as a competent speller!

Locket said...

Oh my goodness

OH MY GOODNESS!!! (said in the way Annie says it when she sees Daddy Warbucks's pad)

I haven't been to visit and there's been love, here, waiting all the time.

*smiles secret smile for the rest of the day in the knowledge that she turns someone on*

even if it is a chick

*remembers her recent track record*

especially if it's a chick
