Do People Really Celebrate Their Dog’s Birthday?

              Happy Birthday, Sunny!

I remember back in the days (circa 1990-2000) when I didn’t really want the entire world knowing my little, silly, quirks.  But the older I get, frankly, I just don’t really give a damn! I might as well publish them in a blog and let everyone know what they are, before someone finds out, and tries to use them against me in a court of law. I guess you can look at this as me being pro-active in the personal quirk department.

In no certain order, here are some of my quirks that makes me who I am. If you are female, can personally identify with at least 5 of them, but not all of them, then maybe you and I should hook up. If you identify with all of them, then hit the road baby.  I really don’t want to date myself because I know what a pathetic little bug that I really can be.

Okay, drum roll, please….

1.  My cell phone resembles a cell phone used by Fred Flintstone. It flips open and has an antenna. I don’t have a data plan on it either. Just cell and text service. I have been eyeing an iPhone but all that new technology might make me blow a gasket.

2. I have no idea what a gasket is.

3. My favorite breakfast is a soft NY pretzel and a Diet Coke. (Note: If you’re a Gastroenterologist, keep your thoughts to yourself)

4.  I can’t pee in open urinals.

5.  I use to like Fig Newtons until I was told they are made from figs.

6.  I love to write, but sometimes, I use way too many, commas.

7.  My dream shopping spree would be at Staples and not Macy’s.

8.  I love the NY Yankees and the LA Dodgers. I’m bi-coastal when it comes to baseball.

9.  Although I do not smoke, it doesn’t bother me. I prefer to smell smoke than body odor…just sayin’

10. When I go to a casino and once I sit at slot machine, I can’t change to any other machines that is within eye sight. I’m scared to get up, move over a couple of machines, only to watch someone hit the jackpot on “my machine.” I will move to the other end of the casino, when I do get up.

11.  I collect fountain pens. I love the dip-in-the-ink kind, as well as modern fountain pens.

12.  Pajamas are overrated. I have pajamas, but I don’t wear them.

13.  The only flavor of jelly I like is grape.

14.  I always wait until April 14th to file my taxes. I dislike people who wait until the very last day to file.

15.  I like to eat pizza with my hands. Obviously I do not belong to any country clubs.

16. I carry a silver dollar with me at all times for good luck.

17.  I have 33 pairs of shoes, but only 12 pairs of socks.

18.  Some of my “friends” on Facebook are not really my friends, but more like frienemies.

19. I don’t always lock my front or back doors at home.

20. I have a shotgun. See #19.

21.  I clip articles from magazines and sometimes never read them. Recently I scanned them all into my computer.

22. I can’t cook, but consider myself a culinary wizard with the microwave.

23. I save all my old passports. I don’t know why, they aren’t valid anymore. I guess I like all the colorful stamps from the places I have traveled to.

24. I can lucid dream.

25. I’m totally crushing on Danica Patrick.  Note to Danica: Call me!

26.  The sleeping pill is the mother of all inventions. Sometimes, it’s the only way to turn my brain off.

27. I would love to enter the Nathan’s Hot Dog eating contest. My personal best is two.

28. I talk a lot about food, but truth is, I really don’t like food.

29. My blogs are 50% poetic license.

30. I have to use Windex every day to clean my laptop screen. Cleanliness is next to Godliness in my book.

31. I forgot to get married.

32. I like doing unexpected things for total strangers, like paying for the coffee for the car behind me at the Starbuck’s drive-thru, and then driving off.

33.  I lie about my height. I say 5’11”, when in reality, I’m only, 5’10”

34. I love getting mail.

35. Some days I skip lunch.

36. I love to draw. There are days I order a Nathan’s hot dog and draw at lunch time.

37.  I love to crack myself up.

38.  *I wear a size 18 shoe.

39.  Any woman is attractive if they are wearing Red Door perfume.

40.  I may take me twenty minutes to decide what flavor of ice cream to get…but I always will end up getting chocolate chip mint.

42. A funny woman is a sexy woman. What man doesn’t want to boink Sarah Silverman?

43. I do laundry every Saturday morning.

44. I carry tire chains in my car during the winter time, but I have no idea how to put them on.

45. I can eat a maple bar either right after church on Sunday mornings or when I am moving. All other times it tastes disgusting.

46. I practice writing my signature for when I am famous!

47. I once rode a bicycle (not a motorcycle, a bike, as in, if you don’t pedal, you don’t move)  from Seattle to Washington D.C. in 49 days. I haven’t been on a bike since.

48. I use a sharpie marker to sign everything.

49. Humus make me sick.

50. I celebrate my dog’s birthday. Really I do. Happy Birthday Sunny! See.

Have a great day!

    1. Fickle Pickle is back. Where have you been? I said a diet coke and soft pretzel was teh best breakfast…I didn’t say I could eat it. I also love Pizza and chili cheese dogs, but I can’t eat them either.

  2. Heh heh. Yes Australia… where it doesn’t snow for Christmas – have a friend who went to France around that time, he saw the Eiffel Tower in the snow for NYE. I was jealous. Sighs. The only way I get a white Christmas is if I take up a coke addiction Christmas Eve 😦

  3. I don’t know if we should meet but…

    2. All I know is it’s a car/engine thing.

    6. I was told to put a comma everytime you stop to take a breath, but I must breath faster than most, as I do it too.

    10. On the rare occasion I’ve gone to a casino I’ve been convinced it would go off the second I left it so I stayed.

    31. I forgot to meet someone worth marrying.

    33. I tell people I’m 5’10” but I’m more like 5’9″.

    39. I used to wear red door but stopped when I dated my last boyfriend, as his mum wore it and I didn’t want him thinking of her when he was with me!

    50. I buy my dogs birthday presents for their birthdays… but now they have too many toys so they just get yummy treats. I swear one day I’ll bake them a doggy birthday cake.

    It’s just dawned on me that you probably don’t care. But the joy of blogs is that you have no idea who I am, so I’m gonna post this anyway.

    1. We can meet under the Eiffel Tower, in Paris at midnight, on New Year’s Eve.

      And you’re wrong, I do care… I like all of anonymous blog friends…that was going to be #51

    2. I take it when you say Aus, it is Australia and not Austria, Right? I think this because:

      !. Australia is backwards with it’s seasons and NYE would be their hot summer time Down Under. I know, I’ve been there 5 times.
      2. Austria/Germany would have their own snow in which you could frolic in and you would not be wanting snow.

      I researched it, ok I just googled “does it snow in Paris in December”, and found that December is one of the coldest months of the year in Paris. As it is winter in the city, the weather is likely to be much the same as that experienced in November, though the temperatures will drop further. The month sees very little sun with cold days, though the temperatures rarely dip below freezing as a rule. Recently, though, the weather has seen much colder spells, with snow fall even seen in Paris.

      Don’t forget to pack your mittens. I’m heading to the travel agency now…
