gender-bender

while i'm on a tag-stealing spree... i stole this tag off pixie's...

it's been doing the rounds... and it requires you to list traits of yours that don't fit your gender stereotype.

so, here's my list of sins.
- i don't do fancy romantic dinners very well. i prefer the bar, diner environment more. i love chilling over a beer. and i think diner breakfasts are the best.
- i do not like mush. i hate roses. i hate red heart-shaped merchandise even more. the concept of fancy romantic proposals make me go blech. i do not get "hints". neither do i give them. if i want to say something, i will. and 'nothing' actually means nothing.
- i'm very comfortable in jeans/trousers. i never wore skirt-suits to work. it was always trousers.
- i am quite fond of remote controlled toy cars. and planes. in fact, i love them. i vehemently dislike dolls. barbies included.
- i love telecom. i do understand the technology. what i don't know, i learn it quick. i found it fascinating to decipher how to determine which server had better specifications. or the apps that would work best with droid.
- i was good at programming before i quit it.
- i wouldn't mind spending a day (or more) at home playing video games.
- i don't know how to be 'coy' or ladylike. if i find something funny, i laugh out loud. quite loud.
- i do not get manicures/pedicures, facials or body massages. i don't like them. in fact, i detest salons and go ONLY for the most basic things.
- i do not spend hours getting dressed. it takes me 15 mins to be completely dressed. i also shop real quick.
- i am not weight conscious. i have never dieted in my life. and would rather die than diet. i love eating.

I can relate to you on so many levels :) I don't like dressing up, takes me minutes to get ready. I don't do facials, manicures or anything else.

Nice...I agree with most too.. I love technology and phones and getting dressed quick and hate massages & salons (tiny voice:I do LOVE dolls though)

loca: no reason to be worried if you fit any stereotype. as long as you're happy & comfortable being you... which, i think you are... you have no reason to worry :)

hw come I haven't commented here? :) I cannot diet either. 1. I love eating. 2. I tahnkfully don't need to. 3. The closest I have come to dieting is by making an announcement that "my diet commences hence".. only to be broken with the next heavy meal. :D
