Whatever Wednesday!

Holy Cow! It’s Whatever Wednesday again!

~This morning I woke up 45 minutes late. I didn’t shower or wear contacts. I wonder if anyone thinks I look like I didn’t shower?

~The Hubs and I had a bit of a discussion last night. But then my sister called and said “I have a gift card to Coldstone!” and I ran out of the house like it was on fire. I mean, the Littles and ice cream! There is no better remedy.

~Two of my cousins had a birthday party on Sunday (they are brothers, 13 and 15). Each of them received upwards of $300 which they will spend on MORE crap to cram into my mother’s house. (My aunt and uncle and 2 cousins are living with my mom and dad while they are saving up for a place of their own.) Doesn’t it suck that, when you’re young you get all kinds of crap and money for your birthday, but when you get older and you NEED the crap and money, you don’t ever get it?

~Speaking of birthdays…… Do anyone else’s parents do this? My mom will think she’s being all cool and give me a card for my birthday with a note in it “ For your birthday, Please choose between (something really great like a spa day) or (something I can’t afford and practical and that I need like new tires).” Thanks Mom, couldn’t you just say that you’d be nice and buy me new tires instead of letting me know what I COULD have instead?! UGH

~I like to think of myself as a pretty selfless person. I like to give to others, and if I have something and someone else needs it (besides chocolate, of course) I will gladly give it up…… but I’m shameless when it comes to presents. What can I say? I love a good surprise, and presents are the best kind I know the “good” thing to say when someone asks what I want for my birthday or Christmas would be to say “Oh, really, you don’t have to get me anything, I’ll be fine” but really, that’s not the case. I don’t make lists 100 items long, like little kids do, but I most definitely have some suggestions! Also, I have a requirement that all of my gifts need to be a surprise. I will test the Hubs and beg and beg for him to let me know what he’s gotten me, or at least give me hints so I can guess, but then I get really bummed when I figure out what it is so it’s not a surprise anymore. Maybe one day he’ll learn to steer me down the completely wrong path so that I don’t have a clue. Right now he just says “why do you even as? You know you don’t want to know!”

~One week from today (YAY!!!!) my co-worker is coming back from maternity leave. I have been taking over her responsibilities, so I will be SOO happy when she gets here and I can just do MY job and then I’ll finally be able to organize my desk and get all of the crap I have acquired out of my cube. (Whew! See? I was so excited that I had to get that all out in one breath with no punctuation!)

~And to close today’s post, I have now found a new obsession. It is called BLOGTHINGS and these ones are pretty scary accurate. Enjoy.

What Your Taste in Music Says About You

Your musical tastes are upbeat and conventional.

You are an easy going, optimistic person.

Family and friends are very important to you.

You enjoy caring for and helping other people.

You thrive in a tranquil environment, and you do your best to keep things peaceful.

You enjoy your life. You have your priorities straight.

You Are a Plain Ole Cup of Joe

But don't think plain - instead think, uncomplicated

You're a low maintenance kind of girl... who can hang with the guys

Down to earth, easy going, and fun! Yup, that's you: the friend everyone invites.

And your dependable too. Both for a laugh and a sympathetic ear.

Your Gemstone Says...

You are a person of high morals and ethics.

You have a lot of personal integrity, and you are very loyal.

You are a very charitable person, and you have faith in others.

Almost everyone is very impressed with you.

Your Ice Cream Personality:

You like to think of yourself as a fairly modest person. And it's true that you don't talk yourself up... but you're also pretty happy with who you are.

You are incredibly cautious. You rather miss out on something than make a mistake. No one would ever call you wild... but they would call you responsible.

You are a very open minded, liberal, and flexible person. You love many things. You tend to have tastes that range from down home to cosmopolitan.

You are a natural multitasker. You feel alive when you're doing more than one thing at a time.

You can be a big dramatic and over the top sometimes. You are bold in every way

coldstone is the flippin best!

my mom does sort of the same thing with birthdays - only she usually just gives me whatever the practical thing is that i need. its nice, but you know, fun things are always appreciated as well.

i sincerely wish my mother wouldn't buy me a birthday present she's so bad at it! hah! and i'm the complete opposite.. i hate surprises!

For the past two years, I have managed to guess all of my birthday and Christmas presents from my boyfriend. He's a terrible liar and it showed immediately on his face that I was right. Now, he will get up and walk out of the room when I say "Oooooh, did you get me a . . . . " before I can even finish the sentence.

Oh I am so addicted to those little personality's like an obsession :0)


Tiffanie said...

ohhh, i like surprises too. so much that sometimes i get sad opening my gifts b/c then the excitement/surprise will be over. weird, huh?

kirke said... I just want Coldstone.

I like how your mom is the Choose your Own Adventure of birthday gifts....I'm going to start doing that to everyone I know.

All I can think of now is ice cream from Coldstone. Gotta. Have it.

Amy said...

I love presents, too. And surprises, as long as they're things I really want or like, because if not, I'm not so good at hiding my disappointment. What a great gift receiver I am! (ICLM)
