Thursday Thirteen: 13 Random Things About Me

Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen is a weekly meme with a simple theme: each Thursday you blog a list of 13 things. What kind of things? Any kind! Just come up with a list theme and run with it.


Brianna’s List:

  1. I must have ice in my drinks. Water, milk, soda. It has to have ice. And it doesn’t matter if it’s the middle of winter – I need my ice!
  2. I don’t drink coffee. I can’t even stand the smell.
  3. I don’t like the smell of leather.
  4. I have yet to break a bone. *knocks on wood*
  5. I easily get car sick so I always drive. Always.
  6. I didn’t realize that I have a Californian accent (or that there even was such a thing) until J9 pointed it out to me with a SNL skit.
  7. I am very particular about things. Some might say that I have OCD.
  8. The only piercing I have that has jewelry in it is my tongue ring.
  9. I am not a gamer. I don’t understand the addiction of playing in a fake reality world but reading fake reality makes total sense to me.
  10. When I go out to a place to eat, I pick the same thing every time.
  11. The only soda I drink is root beer, and only A&W (my first choice) or Mugs.
  12. I am utterly afraid to fly. So afraid that I passed up an opportunity of a lifetime because of my fear. And yes, I’ve flown before, on three separate occasions.
  13. Chocolate is my kryptonite.


J9’s List:

  1. My dream job is to be a tea sommelier.
  2. I love Star Wars and Star Trek.
  3. I have a fan dream that Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are soul mates.
  4. I *hate* dogs.
  5. My guilty pleasure meal is a vegan Bocca burger and potato chips.
  6. My favorite video game is Sid Meier's Civilization.
  7. I hate coffee.
  8. I lie and say I'm 5 feet tall.
  9. I hate clothes shopping so my husband buys all my clothes.
  10. Madison Square Garden is my church.
  11. I hope one day to live in San Francisco.
  12. I've never had my own bedroom.
  13. I wanted to be a circus performer when I was a kid.

  1. Great lists ladies!!
    Random thing about me: I don't like ketchup, mustard, or ranch dressing.

    1. Interesting!! I don't like ketchup either.

    2. Ketchup? Ketchup? I could squeeze ketchup directly into my mouth! What do dip fries in?

  2. Wonderful list :) Random thing about me: the thumb on my left hand is double jointed

    My T13

  3. wow great to know you ladies better. I too have certain foods I always order when I eat out

    1. Thank goodness I'm not the only one! LOL

    2. You gotta tell us one of your eating out meals then. Tell! :)

  4. I attended some of the original Star Trek Conventions in New York City and at one of them saw my high school boy friend.

    1. We go to cons too but thankfully never ran into an ex!

  5. I don't like to fly either and it has hampered my life. sigh... I missed a trip to Hawaii with my family. I've missed a lot actually. I used to fly all the time. I really don't know what happened. I am just glad to know I am not the only one!

    Angela's Anxious Life

    1. What happened to me is kids. Once I had my first kid, I couldn't fly. It's took scary, having your life in someone's hands and to be so out of control yourself. I've heard the statistics but it doesn't change anything.

  6. What an interesting list! I don't like coffee either, but love the smell. And I used to eat the food on my plate one at a time (finish item #1, then item #2, then item #3, etc), until my husband started teasing me. I never even realized I did that until he pointed it out!

    1. Sounds like you have a bit of OCD, like me :)

  7. Brianna - same goes for me on your 1 and 10. It's not possible to put enough ice in my drinks. I don't drink any beverages that don't have ice in them. And when you go to a restaurant are you like me when someone can't figure out what to order? I'm like, "How can you not know what you want!!"

    1. I'm actually kind of envious of people who look at a menu and all the possibilities. I'm such a picky eater, hence the reason I eat the same thing, but how I would love to eat a more varied diet. But I do love that when I go to a restaurant I don't even have to speak my order. The waiter knows.

  8. I hate clothes shopping as well so I'm sure I will have my boyfriend start doing that for me one day. He is a clothes whore and loves to shop for them. I drag my feet and wait till it is time to move on to the bookstore. :)

  9. Interesting lists! Random thing about me: I don't like coffee either! Coffee haters unite!
