You might be a Nonnie when: You are sitting upright in a computer type chair that can somewhat recline. Someone comes up behind you to talk or look at the computer screen with you and rests their hand on the backrest.  Not only can you can feel it, it is very physically annoying!

Ok, you might be a nonnie if you buy a pair of jeans that are the right length when you are standing, but 3 or 4 inches short when you sit down.  That darn upper / lower leg thing

I never ever thought of that!!! Always thought Oh I mustn't have measured right when I hemmed them

Goodness me, that's me through and through!  Just thinking about it makes me shiver in irritation!

Well spotted Tom!

Yes, about 8 pages ago we decided that the story of the Princess and the Pea really wasn't very funny.

I'm beginning to wonder if my 4 1/2 year old isn't a nonnie.  He's always pulling at the neck of his shirt.  They're all stretched out because he's always yanking at them saying they're too tight.  They're not even turtlenecks (which, oddly enough, he will wear sometimes).  He pulls at t-shirts and everything else too.

I bet it was a nonnie who got the idea to print the tags on the insides of t-shirt necks instead of sewing them in.

I bet so too.

I think I figured out what's up with DS's shirt-pulling.  Not to change the subject here, but since I mentioned it here, I may as well say what I think.  The last few days he's been saying he was having trouble breathing and really yanking on his shirt neck.  I tried to sound nonchalant to him, but I began to wonder if he's got asthma too.  Then today we were cleaning up in his bedroom and I happened to notice some black spots on the wall next to his bookshelf.  I pulled the bookshelf away from the wall and behind it is COVERED with mold.  I don't know where it came from!  I thought maybe a cup of water got spilled or something, but there's no cup or other indication of water having been there.  On the other side of that wall is the chimney, so I'm wondering if the chimney is allowing water to soak through to the inside.  DH has got a big job on his hands when he gets home.  We may have to cut out a section of the wall and replace it.  Until then, I've shut the bedroom door and told them to stay out.

Wise move shutting the room off Leanne!

I have asthma and fungal spores are the worst for creating breathing problems with me.  Well spotted and I hope your DS is okay once the mould mischief is managed!

On the basis of just this thread I am a nonnie and so was my mother whose book, "The Highly Sensitive Person" I inherited when she died. The whole bunch of posts on being sensitive to textures of clothing, sounds, smells, etc. was my experience growing up. My daughter has the same kinds of sensitivities, so I will assume she is also a nonnie. My own experience at age 8 with the 'Dreaded Yellow Sunday Dress' gave me the experience to buy only one new pair of anything for my daughter until we knew she could tolerate the texture of the clothing. We gave many a set of socks, jeans, shirts, and dresses to the local woman's shelter until we found some brand that would work for her. Then we would buy the article of clothing in every color they had. I wish my own mom had done that for me. I had to learn it for myself. I remember going to the shoe store before I could read and turning over every pair of tennis shoes to find the ones with a specific sole that felt best. My dad never understood that.

What a wonderful statement by one who has seen the wisdom of acknowledging that the world is as it is and all else is illusion.. I suffered all my early years but never thought about it much - just accepted it as that this is the way life is- no one then knew the difference - no one was guilty- no one made me do anything-

Then I experienced a change in diet - and from that day on I knew that I had suffered all my life- and with it came my quest for knowledge- I searched knowing my life depended on it- I became not single minded- but unshaken in my need to find answers to who "I" am.. I FOUND IT AS A NONNIE.. and I understand that life is not on illusion - unattainable- but real every time someone experiences PROFOUND change, acceptance and action - the world is a much better place for us NONNIES in it.. WHAT A THREAD!!!!!!!!!! Thanks all types of Nonnies.....

I would have a question:  Are Nonnies ever afraid?? or are we brave?? how has it changed who we are? Are we more tolerant? More sharing?


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Hi nonnie folks,

What a great sharing! If some of you have had no chance to test your secretor status as yet, a simple blood test for Serum Alkaline Phosphatase might also indicate that you are likely to be a nonnie: nonnies tend to score about 20% as compared to secretors. Symbi has found out a good site for study if someone is interested in the findings.

May I ask a sensitive question to all of you nonnies? Are nonnies sexier (in physical and emotional sense and not in the sense of beauty as such)? (I ask this question based on some of my observations, where suspected nonnies did appear to be so.) Please do not get annoyed by the question and forgive me if I have put a wrong question.

Are you thinking Nonnies are more adventurous Kumar I would consider myself to be more of a flirt (if that counts for being sexy) & love male attention & company, more than women's

Sorry if that offends any women - its not that I don't enjoy women friends - its just that I have never been one to "go out with the girls" I always have preferred the dynamics of mixed company...

Interesting questions.

As a kid, I was a little too brave for my own good. Several times I did stuff that could have gotten me killed.    I still have that streak in my nature, but life has toned it down some.

And as for the sexy part...I don't know. Maybe I should put up my picture and see what y'all think.

Bought some Guinness beer recently, but the beer tasted too strong for me. That's the only way I can describe it. I was wincing while tasting it. Oooo! So I would pour some in a glass full of ice and then add an inch of flavored coffee creamer in it to take the edge off. Sort of turned it into an iced coffee beer.

Does this sound like something a Nonnie would do?? Just wondering.

I asked the question are nonnies afraid, brave, and sharing.. and I did mot even know the answers.. I am adventurous, I want to go with someone some where for a good reason, I think I am poor at doing it alone, sharing yes that is the spice if living..  yet the reason I asked .. did the nonnie thing make us stronger, dependent? and understanding more or less because we are nonnies.. as for the sexy thing- romance loyalty and committment .. IF one finally feels good then it's up for grabs..

I am a nonnie, very adventuresome.  Traveled through Europe on my own in my late teens and early 20's.

Used to ski some very gnarly stuff before my Achilles Tendon surgeries.  I get more speeding tickets than my husband.  Like to try anything once.  

I would consider myself more curious than brave, I have a fear of heights, I cannot do the trapeze.  

I love to share or be altruistic.

first time i have seen this and have not been tested but there is a good probability i am a noni.
the moto here is: please don't touch and don't overwhelm me with your presence    
i like and relate to this, even to the point were other people subconsously avoid touching me. my ex was an exseption. he was always wanted to touch me, grab me, hold me..... and it drove me litterly nuts to the point were i did things just to keep him off! when people go to toucht me i warn them to tell me first if they want to keep that hand. i automaticly lash out at an unexspected toucht! five min of cuddling was five min too long.
sounds? high pitches rake my nervs like claws. i even hear dog wistles! low pitches i might hear but they are just there.
light? as a teen i had green chritmas light on my ceiling and i was happy with that as my only light. i read by them and every thing. i HATE those new blue car lights!!! i hate them. they actuly HURT. regular car lights i can't see past untill they go past. though last night i had a kid come though drive through at night with yellow glasses on. i asked about it and he said it helps with the oncomming car lights. i don't normally drive at night during a time were there are alot of other cars but i am going to try this next time i do.
tickling hair? ichy noses and ears? oh yes and i have great hair i hate to have to put it up becuse it is the one thing i get complaments on. and if a hair gets off and tickels the back of my arm i go nuts tring to get it. and god forbid it wriggle it's way into my pants!
i never realy thought about seams but now you guys mention it i buy victorias secreat becuse their underwear has no seams! and i love those painted on lables, tags will actuly give me a rash from rubbing. i have had pants to that to my hips before i switched to hip huggers. and i am very picky on my shoes. i tell shoe sellers on my way in "i know what i want and if you don't have it don't waist your time tring to sell me something else"
sexy? i don't think so but guys do seem to be attracted to me.


nothing to do? who has that!?
swami made me an explorer!

Personally, & from what guys tell me, I don't think sexy is all about looks...(not that I'm considered bad looking btw)

They reckon there are some gorgeous looking women who are absolute ice maidens who don't give off any vibes other than, I know I'm gorgeous but don't you dare... That's not sexy - Apparently its about warmth, vitality, sensuality...

Yes, Possum. sensuality, warmth and vitality: I have something like these in mind when I think of being sexy. (more in the biological sense and in a sense of heightened need for sex).
