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!

  1. I have lots of memories reading and listening to my mom's records too :)

  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…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…
