Thursday Thirteen, VIII

Thursday, November 17, 2005

Thirteen things on my mind today: 1) I'm starting to feel like a bad Rocky movie or something, with those big Roman numerals in the title. 2) I still haven't told my mom that thing I have to tell her. She's coming over on Sunday to help me clean. Maybe I'll take her to get some coffee and tell her then. 3) I'm wearing pantyhose today for the first time in years. My boss said I should be wearing them to look more professional. 4) I hate pantyhose. 5) My birthday is two weeks from yesterday! Update: Haven't had it yet...still 13 days from now! 6) I now have eighteen confirmed for Thanksgiving Day. 7) There are seven more unconfirmed, which if they confirm, will bring me back up to my original 25. 8) I'm trying to figure out if I can get everything prepared in time for me to run The Trot on Thanksgiving morning. I did it last year and I would love to improve my time and make it an annual event. Dinner isn't until two. The run is only 8 miles, but it doesn't start till 9 am. And I probably couldn't run it any faster than a 1:35. Meaning I wouldn't get home until after 11. Probably not going to work. :( Last year's chip time was 1:46:35.10! I so want to beat that. *sigh* 9) I'm not sure if it's possible, but I think I have met and fallen for the sweetest, most loving, most romantic, funniest, most intelligent, most handsome man on the planet. I can't describe how it feels to be with him. Safe and good are two words, but they aren't quite right. 10) Zed got contacts. He was sooo excited. He called everyone in our family on Tuesday night. It was actually kind of funny. 11) I'm 9-0-1 in my fantasy football league. Yeah! Lass' Kickin' Ass! 12) I have another secret. Only one other person knows. If you're really good, maybe I'll tell you all soon too. 13) I can't figure out a final thing for my thirteen today, so this will have to do.

  • I LOVE pantyhose... on women, of course.

    Perhaps I shouldn't share that in this forum.

    Thinking about doing the Thirteen thing today. Thirteen's a lot though. That's about eleven more thoughts than I normally have.

  • Big hug for upcoming week. Hope it works out. Also congrats on the LOOOOOVVVVEEE thing. Always wonderful to hear someone found their fairytale. My 13 is up at www.myown2feet30.blogspot.com
    I deleted my previous blog in a mood, and now I'm back after a good cry.

  • You may hate yourself if you run the trot and cut it so close to dinner. Unless, you have a family member at your house who is willing to man the controls for you while you run. Hey, are you running the Disney Marathon? I know someone else that is thinking about it.

    Take your mom out for a DRINK and then tell her about what you need to tell her.

    I hate pantyhose too. I've had to wear them the last couple of weeks because it's been darned chilly. Frankly, I don't think they make anyone look more professional. In fact I've seen some downright scary hosiery combinations.

    Oh please, please tell us the secret!!

    And, I'm doing a happy dance because you're in love!

  • 1) Yo! Adrienne! hehehehe

    3) Pantyhose bite! I'm lucky, even though I work in an office, we are very casual. I'm wearing blue jeans today! :)

    9) That is so sweet. I'm glad you have found someone who makes you so happy!!!

    Have a great Thursday!

    My 13 is up!

  • i hate pantyhose too, but depending on your work envirnoment, yeah, i think you need to wear them. if you make your stuff up ahead of time, you should be able to squeeze in that run, hope you've delegated as well.
    i'm doing the 13 today too.

  • I HATE pantyhose too. They make my legs all itchy. 18 for Thanksgiving, possibly 25???? Ack! We have Thanksgiving at our house every year and we only have 8. I can't imagine having 18-25 people in my house. I hope you at least get lots of help.

    Check out my 13!

  • I'm in the pantyhose hating club too!

    Good luck in the Turkey Trot.

    Here's 13 for you:

  • I must be a weird-o because I wear pantyhose under pants.
    PS: My 13 is posted. Have a great weekend! :)

  • I loathe pantyhose. I could never wait to get home and rip them off!

    Good luck with your mom Sunday (if you decide to tell her) :)

    Here's mine

  • I wish my mama would come help me clean. Nobody cleans like my mama.

    Wearing pantyhose is against my religion.

    Oh, I love secrets...when I know them...

    It may have been only twelve things (really) but you're list was really cool.

    My list is up on my blog!

  • I see you will all be busy next week. No thanksgiving in Spain, we have a doctor's appointment instead! Posted my 13 today. Sorry about the pantyhose, can't stand them either, I wore pants when I worked.

  • Pantyhouse is something to avoid!

    Be sure to see my Enterprise party invite to find our how you can join.

  • Happy Belated Birthday!!! I HATE pantyhose. I just had to wear a pair for the party and I'm still paying the price. I need to breathe dammit!!

  • Ugh, the days of pantyhose! I don't miss them!

    So, do you like this new man? You're always so vague...

    Good luck with your mom thing. And thanks for reminding me about the turkey trot. I think I'll go look for one nearby to sign up for!

  • your boss asked you to wear pantyhose? is s/he allowed to do that?

    i've done the 13 today too

    By Blogger The Toothfairy, at 11/17/2005 03:06:00 PM

     


  • Ick, pantyhose. Are there any women who DO like wearing them?
    Good luck with talking to your Mom and with all the Turkey-day stuff, too. I'm expecting about the same number of people here.

    You're welcome to read/link my 13, too. I'm pressed for time in getting to read everyone's list (much less link them all) and I know I don't get to your blog often but I had to come read you this week after yesterday's talk (elsewhere) concerning butt jiggle and Madonna. Hehe. :)
    Happy Thursday.

  • I've never looked at panty hose the same way since Joe Namath...

    By Blogger FTS, at 11/17/2005 04:21:00 PM

     


  • Wow, your hopeful time for the Trot is what my family did the Girl Scout 5K in. We are nothing if not underachievers. :-)

    I hope the talk with your mom goes well. I hate that feeling. Churn churn churn.

    Here's my 13: http://jenanddavin.blogspot.com/

  • pantyhose...ick. Try wearing fishnets or those crazy striped tights. Heh. I wouldn't do it, but advice is free here on the internet. :)

    Eeesh. I will congratulate you once again on your fantasy football league. And also, on your choice of men :)

  • I was just at someone else's site who was doing 13 Thursday number 15! I wouldn't even know how to type that in roman numerals.

    I hate panty hose too and wear thigh highs when needed!

    Thanks for the visit!

  • Pantyhose suck! I agree. Glad you are so happy with your special someone! You deserve it. My husband wants to run the trot here and I told him no. I don't want to deal with the three kids and have to deal with dinner too. What is the secret?

  • oops, here are my 13... http://multiplemania.blogspot.com/2005/11/thursday-thirteen_17.html

  • I hate panty-hose too. They are so hard to get my hands under. And girls laugh at you when your hands get tangled up in stuff and you have to be cut free.

    Congrats on da Love.

    And I did my thirteen.

  • COunt me in on the anti-pantyhose fan club!
    I was going to do 13 but things are not going well here, was afraid i'd bitch for 13 lines instead.
    Nick sounds like a gem! I hope it works out for the two of you :))

    Good luck with telling your mom the bad news, ugh. :(

  • I'm an overachiever so I would do the run and the dinner. I would try to cook everything but the bird & gravy before and then have someone keep an eye on the bird while I ran...Of course I DONT RUN but you get the idea! LOL
    Wow! 25 for Tday that's a lot...good luck with all of that. Here's my 13 http://lillyput.blogspot.com/
