Thursday Thirteen

So I have been tagged by my friend Kristin at Jilli Java and the Garden of Eden to post 13 uninteresting things about me. Only 13?? There are so many.... ;)

1. i have the most uncomfortable desk chair in the whole wide world (okay, at least in this office).

2. my sweet little Pansie plant has been moved to the window in my office - it's sufferin' from lack of light.

3. i work in a seriously dysfunctional office.

4. my dreams of being a spelling champion were dashed on my first word out (grade 2? or 3?) when i misspelled scientist by "sounding it out"....S-C-I-E-N-C-E-T-I-S-T. Wah!!!!!! damn phonics method.

5. i bribed Scott to clean the interior of my car last night by promising to go to bed early rather than continuing to snooze on the couch in front of a blaring TV. or wait, did he bribe me? hmm.

6. my whole marriage may have been determined by one massive Chinese lunch. (thank God!)

7. i had minor surgery on my wrist last fall, for tendinitis, and it STILL is not healed. there's a bright red scar there and things inside the wrist still hurt. whassup with that?

8. i now have a three-month-at-a-time calendar by my desk and i love it so much. perfect gift for a planner.

9. i really, really want us to add an English Setter to our family.

10. i also want a Pug, but my husband flat out refuses. i got a big lecture about how we all have to love the members of our family, blah blah blah, and he just doesn't think he can love a Pug for the next 14-17 years. alrrrright. though i have said if i turn out to be barren (God forbid), i am so getting three Pugs and carrying them everywhere in a wicker basket, society be damned! ;)

11. i secretly have a Rod Stewart CD that i love...but if you bring this up again, i will deny it.

12. i can't get the tile in my bathroom clean. one of many domestic failings.

13. i have an unusual attachment to grey sweaters. and to spelling it "grey."


p.s. I'm tagging Marie, Tootsie Farklepants, Carolyn, Deb and Scott -- you're it!
