Thursday 13 the First

What the heck is a Thursday Thirteen? I thought I’d try this to see if I like it. I prolly will. LOL So far, I’ve been enjoying the blogging world! So here are 13 things about me to start off my first TT.

Thirteen Things about Winter

1. I write…all the time. If it’s not the blog, it’s the Bar or something else.
2. I’m Emo… per my kid. She hates this about me. I say I’m moody. She says pfft.
3. I feel old…about half the time. The half where my bones ache.
4. I don’t give a shit about the state of the nation. I only care about the state of my bills vs my bank account.
5. I could probably eat Mexican food every day of the week, and I’m not even Hispanic.
6. I’m not good at parties. I hang out in the kitchen. Can you say wallflower?
7. I’ve been to auto racing school twice. Once at Sears Point and once at Laguna Seca.
8. I learned how to swim (sort of) at the age of 26 thanks to 2 teenagers, Jason Marquez and J.J. Jones. (Thanks guys!)
9. I met the love of my life on the internet at KNAC.com. His hair is longer than mine.
10. I love creme brulee. Apparently, all my best female characters do as well.
11. My favorite smells are fresh ground coffee beans and Lovespell.
12. I collect giraffes because of a fictional character who looks like Marcus Schenkenberg.
13. I was born on Halloween.

    Some of the best parties gravitate to the kitchen!

    Ha! My family says I’m a pessimist but I say I’m a realist.

    Hi Winter! Thanks for stopping by! Fancy meeting Alice and Jen here too.

    Count me in with loving the smell of coffee but only liking coffee ice cream. Sometimes, the best parties are in the kitchen!

    I have to laugh every time I hear EMO, I think of Emo Phillips and The Cure.

    Great start for you TT!

    I think it’s neat that you’ve been to racing school. I’d never do that, because I am still a bit intimidated by cars, even at forty four.

    Well, here is Wiki’s def for EMO:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emo

    My kid means that I’m being emotional, moody, and ‘woe is me’. It’s been a crappy year. I work hard, and I’ve earned a weekly wallow. When she tells me I’m being Emo, I sniffle into my kleenex and tell her to take her random ass to her room after she’s taken out the trash. Usually, the trash doesn’t make it out until I become the Wicked Witch of the East. “I’ll get you my pretty, and your little cat too!”

    I’m with Alice. I keep hearing this “Emo Music” “Emo lifestyle” etc.
    I don’t get it. My hubby says it’s “wuss rock”. *rolls eyes*

    I LOVE the smell of coffee. Even cheap crappy coffee.

    Very cool list, Winter.

    Thanks everyone for commenting! A Marcus for all of you! (If you don’t know what the Marcus Award is check the post called Earn the Marcus.)

    Risky… there is nothing better than Lovespell on bare skin and then your partner saying, “God, you smell good!”

    Alice Audrey…I’ll trade you. I’ll give you the def of Emo and you tell me if DS is Dear Son. You are not alone on the smell but not drink thing. There are several people at my office exactly the same way!

    David… do I soak in the green tea? Cuz frankly, that stuff tastes like crap! If I’m drinking tea, only Earl Grey will do. #7 was fun both times, closed wheel and open wheel. But men always think women aren’t aggressive enough to do well so no one wanted to partner with me. Too bad for them! I got the instructor. *EG* Ad for making beer, my best pal at the office (the evil HR mgr), her DH brews his own. My DH loves Guinness and Boddington’s.

    Great comments so far! I’m loving this TT thing. I’m off to check out your blogs now!

    #4: the only thing green tea is good for, IMO: aching joints.

    I envy you #7 and can second 1/2 of number 11 (and there’s no doubt which half…); for my freshly ground coffee, I use a burr-grind handmill. Yum. For the other half of a “favorite smells” I’d probably substitute the aroma of a nice, crisp lager. Or ale. Either would do nicely (I have a few gallons of ale in the fermenting keg right now that I’m eager for the first stage to finish so I can bottle condition it… patience is not one of MY virtues) πŸ™‚

    #12–I once had a small collection of striped giraffes. Yeh, didn’t make sense to me either. *heh*

    What an interesting collection of facts!

    So tell me what Emo is? My ds keeps mumbling about it, but isn’t clear enough for me to be able to figure out what he means.

    I sort of sometimes care about the state of the nation, but in a very non-personal way.

    I also hang out in the kitchen.

    I love the smell of coffee but never drink it.

    Welcome to TT!
