I Was The Kind Of Kid Who...


I saw this link-up on Miss Helene's blog & knew that I had to do it so here we go:


I was the kind of kid who...

  ...pretended to be Ariel in our swimming pool by crossing my ankles into a fin.

  ...got to watch Porky's but couldn't watch Beetlejuice - I think that penises flopping about is more scary than Michael Keaton.

  ...would rather sit inside listening to Mom's records than play outside.

  ...had a ton of Hot Wheels (complete with car tracks) & Barbies to play with.

  ...sat with the adults just listening to their chatter rather than getting into trouble with the siblings & cousins (they were always getting into trouble - ha!).

  ...must have known that I'd eventually be the smallest so I beat up on my siblings as much as I could when they didn't listen to me while I was babysitting.  Tee hee!

  ...sat by the heating vent reading Babysitters Club & then eventually RL Stine books.

  ...went with her mom to the library to not only get stacks of books but to look at old newspapers.

  ...my mom had a difficult time buying pants for cuz my waist was so small & my legs were so long (I have the same issue with Sunshine).

  ...came home from school & did my homework while watching Dark Shadows that I had taped during the day on SciFi.  I loved that show!

  2. Oh man I was the biggest Babysitters Club fan. Read every single book and even made a fake club in my room with my dolls. I had the Stacey and Dawn dolls. Also loved RL Stine! Apparently RL Stine is going to start writing kid books again!

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…
