Thursday 13 - #4!



Here are 13 things I've never done before that I did in the past 3 months.

1. Bought a painting through eBay - I love it.

2. Made corn chowder and it was good [gasp!].

3. Spent the better part of a two weeks on a hunt for the best hot chocolate I could find.

4. Had blini's [including salmon and cavier - I never eat anything from the sea, but it would have been rude to decline - blech!] and Kir Royal [nice :-)].

5. Started to learn German.

6. Bought boy's socks because they were nicer than the women's.

7. Drove 80mph past a police car [with police in it] and didn't get a ticket!

8. Subscribed to a serial graphic novel.

9. Figured out RSS and am now addicted to Bloglines.

10. Organized a surprise party and it stayed a surprise - it's this Friday so while this is still true now, it may not be then.

11. Gave an older man I didn't know a hug. He was working so hard and everyone around him was complaining loudly how he wasn't fast enough.

12. Started to watch the Soprano's and love it...only thing is, this is the last season. Thank goodness for DVD's.

13. Ate a box of Girl Scout Thin Mints...oops, I'm sure I've done that before, but since I can't remember I'm counting it!

wow, u accomplished a lot! it took me a while too to understand RSS,and even now, i still don't fully understand it but it's good enough I have my RSS in blog,hehehe!

Mmmmmm.... thin mints.

And someone really ought to explain RSS to me one of these years. The Sopranos is on my to-do list, as well. I can't think why we didn't watch it on HBO, but it'll probably be fun watching it in massive binges.

Happy TT!

#9 frightens me...I would get obsessed and competitive about the whole thing and it would ruin my life. I'll check into it right after I'm done reading Thursday Thirteens!

Umm...I'd love to comment but I'm still too flabbergasted by the penis tattoo, LOL!

And thanks for turning on your RSS feed, too! I am addicted to my Google reader and think the whole world ought to use it. It's just so damn easy.

I want pictures of the eBay painting!!! (is it as clever as the tattooed penis??)

Happy TT, Tilly. Thanks for visiting West of Mars!

People really need to respect older Americans...good for you!

Bianca D'Arc said...

Great list, Tilly. I especially liked #11. So sad. I hate it when folks get impatient with older people. It kinda makes me mad. Good for you for being patient and kind.

great things on this list. But, what is this Kir Royal you speak of?

Wylie Kinson said...

I totally don't get RSS. Next week, how bout an RSS for Dummies topic? ;)

Welcome to the world of the Sopranos. I LOVE them.

Good for you for hugging the old dude. I'm sure he'll remember that forever.

German I would love to learn German or Nepalese. Something other than French or Spanish.

Great list! Love the Monday post, YIKES!

Thanks for dropping by mine.
