Thursday Thirteen Dorky Things About Me

Thirteen Things about Vanessa

1. I like Neil Diamond songs.
2. I don’t do drugs, recreational or prescribed. I think they should be used as a last resort.
3. I don’t watch reality TV.
4. I am not a celebrity junkie. I can go to my local bar and see people who change sexual partners every week, get so intoxicated they can’t control their mouths and lie to others and themselves. I don’t need to pay someone to see this mess.
5. I don’t stop to look at car accidents.
6. I don’t think people should take children into bars.
7. I would never follow my husband to see what he’s doing. If I felt the need to do this, I would know it was over and I’d leave him.
8. I can’t dance but I love to dance.
9. I can’t sing but I love to sing.
10. Vanilla is my favorite flavor.
11. I don’t think Howard Stern is funny, just outrageous, which I don’t find entertaining.
12. While I read almost anything I can get my hands on, I don’t read the newspaper.
13. I’m funny in my head.

P.S. My caption was nominated at Belle of the Brawl. Help a girl out by voting for me so my one vote (me) is not so lonely.

P.P.S. I thought I saw on someone’s blog how the Thursday Thirteen links are updated automatically. Does anyone know how to do that or was I hallucinating?

  1. Hey -- almost all "sames" -- except I did watch the last season of Survivor. But until I got cable I only had the one station ....

  2. Voted -- now you have 2. Tell everyone else to hurry over there!

  3. Quilly: You are forgiven you small lapse.

    And thank-you, thank-you, thank-you.

  4. Im not much of a celeb person either, good for us!

    I don't really like kids being in bars either.
    Though, to be honest I have on rare occasions (eating in pubs in England was really the best option but the smoke might yet be the death of them)

  5. Yeah, kids in bars? Not good. They can't hold a drink steady for nuthin! haha

    Good list and you are uniquely YOU! :)

  6. 99 red baloons?
    How many green baloons does it take to lift one off the ground
    How many does it take to put a smile on that girl lost + found
    Were we not always heaven bound

  7. Logo: European pubs are different than American bars. The atmosphere is not the same.

    Lisa: I found giving them straws helps. And thanks.

    Q: Is that the same as asking how many roads must a man walk down before he can call himself a man?

    And I have the mostest votes right now. Thanks you everyone that took pity on me. I love you, man.

  8. Sometimes, not just in your head...:)

    Good one Nessa.

  9. "7. I would never follow my husband"

    What if he was in the foursome ahead of you?

  10. BB: Hi, thanks for stopping by. If he was in the foursome ahead of me, he'd get a golf ball in the knoggin.

  11. Ditto on numbers 8, 9, and 10. nice MeMe
