Thursday Thirteen 11/27/08 - 35th Edition (You-Centric)



It's been very me-centric over here the past couple of days, even more than usual, which is cool, I suppose, since it is my blog and all, but I'm kind of done with me for a few hours. I'll be back. Worry not.

Since many of you are enjoying a day (or four!) off to be thankful, maybe you have a minute to tell me about you. Answer as many or as few questions as you wish. Or none while you just somehow leave me some sweet potato pie or stuffing in comments (since I'm dining at McD's for Thanksgiving this year. alone. sad. true. but actually totally OK with me because very good things are so very right around the corner. and in time for Christmas dinner. yep, see private blog - email me to get in, and shh.). If you choose to answer these over on your blog instead of here, just shout, and I'll update to spread the love of the link.

*Updated to add a link to Joyce who played along and answered over on her blog.

    1. I am most grateful for my family and friends.
    2. I love Turkey fixed just about any way imaginable.
    3. I have 10 pets, 8 Chihuahuas, 1 red healer, and 1 Bengal Snow Leopard.
    4. I have lived on McD's for about a week one time. just about 3 times a day. Don't think I'll ever do that again.
    5. English, I can order a beer, get a room for the night, order food, and ask where the train station is in German. I know w few not so good words in French.
    6. Yes I talk to myself, out loud, all the time. Sometimes I am the only one who will agree with my point of view, LOL.
    7. My favorite scent is poison. Every time my wife wears it there is an almost immediate response.
    8. I couldn't play a musical instrument if my life depended on it.
    9. I can not juggle at all, including bill's, LOL.
    10. Colorado is my home, a tiny little town right in the center of the state, called Fairplay. I miss it soo.
    11. I would be the quiet one with a few very good close friends.
    12. Let's see, 2007 was not a good year for me, but 2008 has not been all that bad so far. Some very good positive things have happened.

    I hope you have a happy and fun Thanksgiving.

  5. What a mix of questions! You know me, I'd have to write at least a paragraph for each answer! So I'll spare you. And your readers! Oh, but I'll have to visit Eric - since he has chinchillas too!

  6. And I'm such an idiot, since I read "Chihuahuas" as "Chinchillas". I guess the 'ch' and then a bunch of other letters could only be one thing to me! ;-)
