Thursday Thirteen
Edition #Unknown

I haven't done a Thursday Thirteen post for several weeks. I have thought about what I'd do a thirteen about, so I have decided to give you my thirteen random things about me. Yes, there are more than thirteen but hey this is Thursday Thirteen.

1. I snore. Yes, Tony says there is not way to describe how I snore. We should have enough wood cut for the entire winter with my snoring.

2. I have a place for EVERYTHING! For instance, in my refrigerator I put all the condiments together, the cokes together, except for mine. The milk and my diet dew are always in the door. If someone is helping me put things away after supper and they put this stuff in places other than where I want them, I move them to their spot. I have actually threatened to put labels in my frig as to where everything should be.

3. I have a very structured work morning routine. I am always the first one up. As soon as my feet hit the floor, I head directly to the kitchen; pour myself diet Mt. Dew, in a plastic glass with 6 ice cubes, it must be a plastic glass. I stand there and drink half the glass, refill and head straight for the shower.

4. When I’m writing a letter, note, grocery list and if my letters don’t look the way that I want them to, I will totally re-write the entire thing. It doesn’t matter if I’m almost through, if I write a letter and it’s wrong, I will redo it.

5. I have absolutely NO patience with morning traffic. I suffer from road rage. There should be a law that says people from ages 60 and up should NOT be allowed on the road between the hours of 6:00 am – 8:30 am and 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm. They are just in the way!!!! They are either driving extremely too slow, drive in the fast line slow, drive in the middle of the lanes, pull out in front of you and drive slow… they hold up traffic. There should not be allowed to have a doctor’s appointment at 8:00 am.
*I will make an exception to this rule... Sarge Charlie & Mrs. Bee, I'm getting out of their way... ;-)

6. I am a yeller. Yes, when something or someone, especially my children, are on my very last nerve I will scream and yell. Matt will say, "Mom, stop yelling, you are not making any sense. I'm not listening to you." Well son, stop getting on my nerves...

7. I will play the same CD over and over and over and over until I know every word of every song that I like all the while I’m doing some serious car dancing too. To bad that I don’t have speakers at work because I would be doing some serious desk dancing if I did.

8. I talk to myself. Yes I do. I have heard my entire life that it's okay to talk to yourself as long as you don't answer yourself. Guess what, I've been known to answer myself too.

9. Well I'm going to admit it I do have a serious potty mouth. Especially when I am mad. A sailor ain't got nothing on me if I'm really pissed. I can stream together obsencities that even make me cringe sometimes. I do have to ask for forgiveness for this too.

10. I WILL NOT tolerate any form of racism, prejudice or flat out ignorance. In this day and age these should be totally obsolete. I just really don't understand it. I don't understand why some people are so small/narrowed minded. *I'll save this topic for another post and I could write an entire post on this*

11. Tony says when I'm sleeping that my farts will put a gorilla to shame. I have been known to wake him up. Not only from the smell but the volume of the fart. He calls these the "Waker Upper Farts" He says that is smells and sounds like King Kong sat on the house and farted. Honestly, I've never woke myself up doing this so we'll have to take his word for it.

12. Oh, I get really pissed off if I am taking a nap it get woke up for a stupid reason. DO NOT interrupt my nap. Just ask anyone in my family. If you're not dying or seriously bleeding then leave me the hell alone. And don't DARE call me on the phone and ask me a stupid question. Like "Where you sleeping?" GRRRRRRRRR

13. Thank god I'm on number 13 because I'm sleepy and I want to go to sleep.

you made me smile with your exception.


Blogger Julie said ... (7/11/2007 11:13 PM) : 

Eww you fart? Can't be true!


Blogger Gattina said ... (7/12/2007 12:14 AM) : 

It's a pity that comments don't ring like an alarm clock, because then I would ask you "Are you sleeping ?" ! And don't dare to critisize drivers over 60 ! I can do that, not you ! Because I probably drive quicker then you and I am over 60, lol !


Blogger Toni said ... (7/12/2007 7:51 AM) : 

With the exception of your gorilla farts, we could be related! I am not as anal about my fridge, but I am about the dishwasher, even friends and family know~ just put it in the sink!

I have a 'special' cup for my diet coke in the morning- with 8 ice cubes, 2 drops of lemon juice and a straw. A bendy straw at that.

We are normal, right????


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (7/12/2007 8:12 AM) : 

Sarge, I knew that would give you a good chuckle.

Julie, you don't??? ;-)

Gattina, I'll make you as an exception too... ;-) and yes it's a good thing comments don't have alarm clocks.. I was truly asleep

Toni, yes we are very, very normal.


Blogger busy91 said ... (7/12/2007 8:29 AM) : 

I knew #7, I think you mentioned that somewhere before. I'm the same way.


Blogger Matt-Man said ... (7/12/2007 8:52 AM) : 

Gorilla farts...really?


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (7/12/2007 9:10 AM) : 

Busy, I think I have to way back when.

Matt, that's what I am told. I don't really know because I'm sleeping.


Blogger Angell said ... (7/12/2007 9:16 AM) : 

ROTFLMOO - Oh Dix, let's see - we share a ton in common, especially #'s 1, 4, 5, 7, 8 (and yes, I answer myself too - get me a padded room next to yours ok?) and 9.

And while I don't nap, DON'T interrupt my sleep. I'm a complete bitch if that happens.


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (7/12/2007 9:37 AM) : 

Angell, I called and reserved your room right next to mine. They have them waiting for us. ;-)


Blogger JAM said ... (7/12/2007 11:00 AM) : 

When I read your admission to having a potty mouth, I thought of Mr. Parker, Ralphie's dad in the movie, A Christmas Story, when his dad was yet again fighting the furnace in their house.

Ralphie said, "In the heat of battle my father wove a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan."

Funny list!


Blogger katherine. said ... (7/12/2007 11:03 AM) :

Blogger Lori said ... (7/12/2007 11:18 AM) :

Blogger the108 said ... (7/12/2007 11:28 AM) : 

I am proud of you for blogging about your farts...lol.


Blogger Dixiechick said ... (7/12/2007 11:33 AM) : 

jam, yes when I really mad I have those same obscenities as Mr. Parker... but I do ask for forgiveness. Thanks for stopping by.

Katherine, thanks for stopping by. #10 is a topic that I am very passionate about.

Lori, it was a spur of the moment list. Thanks for stopping by and it's nice to be back.

Kyra, I kinda sorta knew you would be proud of me ;-)

Not participating, but just have to comment. Your farts will put a gorilla to shame? Wow, you really put the info out there huh? Thanks for sharing and I'll be Sarge Charlie and Empress Bee are okay with number 5 now. Interesting answers. Have a great day. :)


Blogger Steven said ... (7/12/2007 12:20 PM) : 

I can't say I've every smelled a gorilla fart and I can't say I really would like to. :-) Enjoyed the list!


Blogger Suprina said ... (7/12/2007 12:30 PM) : 

Great TT13 from a fellow Tennessean.


Blogger Denise said ... (7/12/2007 3:07 PM) : 

Great list. It's always nice to be able to tell things about yourself that no one would ever know. I love that about these blogs. Thanks!


Blogger Qtpies7 said ... (7/12/2007 5:35 PM) : 

Oh my gosh, I totally cracked up at the farting!
My husband went on a mission trip to France and was in the room with at least one other man. One night my dh farted so loud it woke himself up, and the other guy who was totally impressed and praised his farting abilities! I don't enjoy them, though. I can't imagine how he doesn't wake up, because his butt cheeks have got to be having some major after shock waves going on.


Blogger Meribah said ... (7/12/2007 7:03 PM) : 

Bwahahahahahahahaha! That gorilla fart one made me literally LOL! Loved this post!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7/12/2007 7:23 PM) : 

OMG, you must be a virgo like me...#1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, and hubby says #11 (I'm sure you can smell em all the way from Nashville!).


Blogger Lisa said ... (7/12/2007 8:33 PM) : 

Ha, great list. I always want a GLASS glass, no plastic unless it's for a quick drink of water and NO ice, unless I have a straw.

Happy Thursday, my list is up too.


Blogger Travis said ... (7/12/2007 9:33 PM) : 

You and I in the car together during rush hour - oh the havoc we could wreak on the world.


Blogger Linda said ... (7/13/2007 10:08 PM) : 

I talk to myself all the time and answer myself, too! Guess that makes me certifiable!


Blogger Amazing Gracie said ... (7/14/2007 3:49 AM) : 

Uh, I fall into age 60 thing, too; so far, I'll wager my driving skills against all you young things! Bet I can still throw a pretty mean speed shift and lay some "scratch" in second gear!!!
Loved your comments...


Blogger Linda said ... (7/14/2007 8:48 PM) : 

In an effort to keep you busy, I have tagged you for a meme over on my blog. It's semi-easy, though!


Blogger Meju said ... (7/20/2007 11:28 PM) : 

Dana says we have a new Marine at your house and he is about to ship out....as a fellow Tennessean, I wish you peace and him protection! God Bless.
