Why not? I'm Doing th TMI




It might already be closed but I'm now feeling better( finally) and I decided to do the TMI blog fest which has turned 5! You can find this over at Debbie The Dog Ladys Den blog. The questions follow the letters of the alphabet...yup, just like the A to Z challenge. So without further adieu, here we go( please say this like Jackie Gleason).

1. AGE- 52(1964) or as I like to say, the new 25

2. BIGGEST FEAR- that I'll kick the bucket when I'm 66. Why that number?? I'll let you guess but no one close to me died at that age...it's actually quite stupid that's why this fear is irrational and downright silly.

3.  CURRENT TIME- 7:43am but I'll be writing this throughout the day. Isn't this a thrilling read?

4. DRINK YOU LAST HAD- Long Island Iced Tea...A good way to start the morning(hiccup).

5. EVERY DAY STARTS WITH- a cat on my chest. I wish it was my hubby

6. FAVOURITE SONG-really? Just one?? Ok, it's Umbrella by Rihanna, that annoying song that...oh wait, favourite song....I love The Third Man Theme, To Dream The Impossible Dream, Nights in White Satin...Just say anything by the Moody Blues and anything ABBA

7. GHOSTS-ARE THEY REAL? I am leaning towards ...yes just because of things I have heard and felt. I was very sad that my dad wasn't with us one Christmas and suddenly I felt his hand patting me on my shoulder like he always did when I was down. No I did not have any tequila shots. Those shows about real ghost hunters are beyond stupid though

8. HOMETOWN-I was born in the majestic (HA!) town of Welland, Ont. and grew up in the country near the metropolis called Wainfleet (4 churches and a dry town until the last 15 years or so)

9. IN LOVE WITH- Hugh Jackman. Oh you mean seriously?....Hugh Jackman

10. JEALOUS OF- I'm not a jealous sort but I do want to bitch slap people who say they can eat chocolate and whipped cream and still can't gain any weight. Also women who say they never had any issues with PMS or menopause. I really do want to bitch slap them:)

11. KILLED SOMEONE? - You mean, on purpose? No No I'm just kidding. I have never killed anyone...just in my thoughts. I am now laughing like some banshee

12. LAST TIME YOU CRIED- Yesterday....

13. MIDDLE NAME- Maria. Now all of you must sing that song from West Side Story

14. NUMBER OF SIBLINGS- 2-Full brother (I believe he is full unless he hasn't had lunch yet) and my wonderful half-sister (my dad had an oopsy back in 1947 way before he met my mom)

15. ONE WISH- To not feel constant, tiring pain 24/7...and to have Trump's hair fall off while on TV

16. PERSON YOU LAST CALLED- My Brother who is soon to be in the Freedom 55 club:)

17. QUESTION YOU'RE ALWAYS ASKED- "What nationality are you?" It's my name..I was born and raised, proudly, Canadian but this comes up daily. One day I will say Swahili which will really make their head spin.

18. REASON TO SMILE- My fur babies, My hubby, a funny movie, a funny video, time with loved ones, beautiful flowers, animals, nature, seeing a young man's pants fall down

19. SOUNDS THAT ANNOY YOU- young women who always talk through their nose and stretch a certain vowel. BITCH SLAP! Crying, tantrum brats, not the babies who are hungry or are hurt, but brats who are brats and the parents who either say or do nothing but do not follow through on their threat....BITCH SLAP! Also, nails on a chalkboard

20. TIME YOU WOKE UP-Physically-6:00am Mentally, 10am:)

21. UNDERWEAR COLOUR-Plaid

22. VACATION DESTINATION-Europe...anywhere...oh you mean for real? Travelling near Montreal next week:)

23. WORST HABIT- My hubby could rhyme off a dozen but I will say I worry too much. I try to work on this but it's part of my make-up. I say "No" a lot plus I hog the remote

24. X-RAYS YOU'VE HAD-Neck, shoulders, hands, hips, knees, feet, chest. Due to my Ehlers-Danlos, I have had a number of joint dislocations and whiplash. Geez...I should just say my whole body:)

25. YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD-chocolate, nice German Torte, Rouladen with spaetzle and red cabbage-yum, yum. Did I mention chocolate?

26. ZODIAC SIGN-The best sign...Gemini! My hubby is one as well so we not only drive each other nuts but our friends as well.

  5. Hi, Birgit!

    Hope you are feeling better and better, dear friend. I'm happy to see that you decided to give the TMI a try.

    I'm 66. Hope I'm not on your kick the bucket list.
    (See what I did there? :)

    You and I have the following in common: Moody Blues, ABBA, leaning toward "yes" on ghosts, middle name "Maria" (just kidding), annoyed by the sound of crying and whining brats. Have you watched the U.S. or the Australian version of the TV series The Slap? I highly recommend both!

    This was fun. It's nice...(I feel a song coming on)...

    Gettin' to know you,
    Gettin' to know all about you.
    Gettin' to like you,
    Gettin' to hope you like me.
    Gettin' to know you,
    Gettin' to feel free and easy...

    1. I am hoping 66 is just another year. So your middle name is Maria...hahahaaa. I love that tune but every time I see dogs sniffing each other, that tune comes into my head

  6. lol your hand may need an x-ray is you start going around bitch slapping so many people. Be rather tiring too. Ugg to the pain though, be nice if that crap would go away for everyone.

  9. Gemini? So, you're particular about how you like things? (People always say something different about Geminis, but this is the one thing I've observed from all the Geminis I've ever known. And I've known a few.)

    1. Thank you:) I think humour is always a good way to go. My one friend told me she was upset because she gained 3lbs...she was 126 instead of 123...I told her to shut up:)

  11. Would you please allow me to be your assistant when you (we) deliver some forceful bitch slaps? It would feel so good. I have to avoid all my favorites because I gain pounds by nibbling at them. Hell, I don't nibble. I ravage non-stop and my tummy (and other body parts) prove it. Smiles.

    PS I didn't know you live in constant pain. I'm so sorry. That sounds utterly miserable. Sending healing and happy thoughts.

    1. The constant pain sucks but chocolate always makes me feel good even if it goes to my hips. Yes you can be my assistant.

  12. I love this! It shows so much of your personality. Geminis rock!

    I too am sorry about your pain. You really don't show it. I think of you as an unfailingly cheery, funny person.

    *hugs* Thanks for this glimpse into your life.

  17. Wasn't he the cop who acted the real toughguy but had a dumb son in Smokey and the Bandit? It cracks me up watching Jackie Gleason because in nearly every case instead of being a wiseguy, he does a class act of doing the exact opposite and blaming his inadequacies on his poor dumb dumb son....

    1. Yup...he's that cop and he was great in the Honeymooners

    1. That is rouladen with spätzle and red cabbage...it's really delicious. You have thin pieces of beef, place salt, pepper, and mustard on it. Cut up onion, bacon and cut pickle and roll it like a cabbage roll and cook it like a roast. It's so delicious. Spätzle is a noodle that one makes and I find it lighter than regular pasta. Yum yum

  22. BIRGIT ~
    I'm a wee bit o' late, but I'm... FASHIONABLE!

    I liked your answers. You obviously had fun with this little thing.

    >>... 52(1964) or as I like to say, the new 25

    Great! That makes me only 29! ...again.

    >>... BIGGEST FEAR- that I'll kick the bucket when I'm 66.

    That's how old my Pa was when he kicked the bucket. Not that this should worry YOU any.

    >>... DRINK YOU LAST HAD- Long Island Iced Tea...A good way to start the morning(hiccup).

    You sound like me. Only I prefer to start the morning with beer. You know, cereals, grains, that sort o' thing.

    >>... IN LOVE WITH- Hugh Jackman. Oh you mean seriously?....Hugh Jackman

    I told you that I worked in Hollywood for about 8 years, right? Bad News: Hugh is gay. ...But you're already married, so that shouldn't bother you any.

    >>... MIDDLE NAME- Maria. Now all of you must sing that song from West Side Story

    NO WAY! I hate everything about that gay play/movie. (But I'll bet Hugh Jackman knows every song by heart!)

    >>... NUMBER OF SIBLINGS- 2-Full brother (I believe he is full unless he hasn't had lunch yet) and my wonderful half-sister (my dad had an oopsy back in 1947 way before he met my mom)

    So, I take it that your half-sister is named Oopsy?

    >>... PERSON YOU LAST CALLED- My Brother who is soon to be in the Freedom 55 club:)

    Cool! I'm in the 'Bondage 69 Club'.

    OK, OK, that's enough, right?

    BTW, rest easy, because I never really met Hugh Jackman and I don't know a ting about 'im. He looks gay to me but... don't judge by the cover, right?

    1. Bondage 69 eh? Sounds like a good plan to stay young:) I thought I was the only one who thought West Side Story was a bit much. I always laugh at the beginning because it just confirmed to me that gang members dance like that down the street before they spray paint a house, sell drugs and kill someone. I don't care if Hugh is gay....he can still be my lover in my dreams

  24. I keep seeing this A-Z about me! Just have not had time to work one out. Was there a specific day you had to do it on? Nice answers. :)
    My worst habit is I'm too over-protective and worry too much. I'm always thinking I've offended someone.
    Well, that's probably the most interesting thing I could have answered. Sorry I didn't answer them all. I hope I didn't offend you. ;)

    1. You could never offend me...unless you tell me the colour of your underwear is brown...😊 I think there may be 6 days left. I worry as well but not about offending someone....that ship has sailed long ago...hahahaaa

  32. Plaid underwear, very cool, Birgit. I was thinking the other day that I would like to skip the 66th birthday for the same reason. "Ma-ri-ahhh, I just met a girl named Mariaaaah. . ." It was on TV the other night, by the way. I've never been a Romeo & Juliette fan. I do like the dancing though.

    1. I actually have nothing plaid but I just think it's funny when one mentions favourite colour and someone says. Plaid:) The beginning of that film always makes me laugh because they are such rough and tough kids who know how to point their toes and dance...hahahaaa

  33. Sorry I missed this, Birgit. I've been bogged down by website issues and then we went away for the weekend. Long Island Iced Tea is one of my favourite summer drinks. Never had it in the morning, though. ☺ Your answers were so entertaining! Plaid underwear; are you part-Scottish? ;) Have a wonderful time in Quebec.
