2 Posts 'Til My Birthday

I have tried several times this year, with several different groups of people, to boycott my birthday. After being informed in no uncertain terms that I am not allowed to boycott my birthday, I have decided that since I am turning 33, we will commemorate it here with 33 random facts about me. 33 is a lot, so I'm breaking them up over 3 posts. Better get started!
1. I was delivered by a podiatrist at a military hospital. Yes, that is a foot doctor.
2. I can't drive a stick shift, not even if my life depended on it. Not even if my children's lives depended on it--sorry boys!
3. I've tried to love shrimp. I cannot do it. It tastes like dirt and the texture is creepy.
4. I have only been absolutely sure of 4 things in my entire life: the names of each of my boys and marrying Matt.
5. If I had to choose one type of cuisine to eat for the rest of my life I would choose Greek/Mediterranean.
6. When I was growing up my parents were supportive of everything I ever wanted to do except playing ice hockey. I really wanted to, but my mom forbade it and would not budge no matter how hard I cried.
7. Secretly I've always wanted a tattoo.
8. I love makeup. Love it like an art form. MAC is the absolute best there is.
9. I don't bathe. Sounds gross, huh? I just mean that I am a shower girl, not a bath girl. Not even for relaxation. How can you relax when you're sitting in your own filth?
10. Donkeys are my favorite animals.
11. My two favorite cities (so far) are Honolulu and San Francisco.

Oh, my gosh Brenda.....I have always "SECRETLY" wanted a tattoo, alos!!! I am so glad you revealed that fact. I would love an islander tat around my ankle. Happy soon-to-be b'day!!! Thanks for sharing.

My secret tatoo would be a simple little heart, bad girls club here we come.

I am so glad you decided to post these facts "about you". I have to admit, the tattoo thing didn't surprise me, but for some reason the shrimp thing did. I feel the exact same way you do, I try and try and just can't like them. The texture is funky!

You are such a special person, and friend. I am sorry I won't be able to bring you a treat on your Birthday, but I will make it up to you as soon as you get back. Have a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Love ya.

This will be fun! I SO agree on the bathing thing. And although I could drive a stick if my life depended on it, I HATE it. And when my hubby forces me to, I usually end up in tears. ha ha

Love this. I don't think I can think of 33 interesting things about myself.

Brenda said...

Oh Julie don't give me too much credit...I never said they'd be interesting! I only promised random!

OK- I have tried to teach you to drive a standard a few different times. Perhaps I should try again. It just so happens I have a standard POC (Piece of crap) sitting here.....let's try it! Also- the tattoo thing doesn't surprise me- but I would like to point out what a hard time you TRIED to give me when I got mine. I knew you never really meant it.
