Thursday Thirteen, the Freek edition

I almost forgot to write today and my hubster has already turned in, so here’s a quick one for you. I’ve seen people do Thursday Thirteen, and it sounds like a great way to bang out a post.

THIRTEEN THINGS ON MY DESK that might tell you just how much of a crazy freek I am:

  1. A binder almost four inches thick with almost all my old film negatives, sorted chronologically. Each roll gets its own slicky and negative sleeves with post-its all over it noting dates and identifying clues. Example: “91-06-01(ish?) at senior swingout with Amy and company because [The GirlBeater] took off in a huge temper tantrum. Ass.” Some I have already scanned and have index prints.
  2. My dSLR with pictures on the card to be downloaded and pick out a couple for Weekly Winners. (I remembered this week! Yay, me!)
  3. Puffs Plus Vicks Scented with Aloe. My nose is very high maintenance. It has an unhealthy sense of entitlement that would rival Paris Hilton’s.
  4. My wireless keyboard that is now JUNK because one of my rugrats spilled a mysterious liquid into it. Literally. I turned it upside down and a 1/2 cup of something fell out.
  5. Christmas candy. ALREADY. Actually, this is less about me being a freek as it is Hunky, because HE’S the one that picked up the Reese’s Bells. Ok, but I admit, YUM.
  6. A box of pens and pencils that is just a drop in the ocean of all the pens and pencils in this house. Can NO ONE THROW AWAY A WRITING UTENSIL?!
  7. A stack of approximately 5 DVDs from a bundle of 25. But I definitely DO NOT borrow my friends’ movies and break the encryption and make a copy for myself. Because that would be WRONG. Especially if it was three full seasons of Desperate Housewives.
  8. No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas For Your Blog. Oh, yes I DID.
  9. Small Post-its. I loooooove small Post-Its. I put them all over the damn place.
  10. Every time I type the word “Post-its”, I am very careful to type that, because in my head I can’t NOT say Post-Tits.
  11. The manual for my dSLR, which I’m currently trying to memorize.
  12. My “I Voted” sticker. And some Obama ’08 stickers.
  13. My sunglasses I bought at Meijer when I went to visit my sister in July. They make me feel like a rockstar because my Leetil Seester picked them out and she has waaaaaaay better fashion sense than me. And she actually wears make-up every day! And she looks like she stepped out of a Banana Republic catalog. I wear make-up about four times a year and I wear almost the same thing every day: jeans (prefer Levi’s 518s), t-shirt and sweatshirt, a matching set from VS, and Chuck Taylors.

Rip it, roll it, and punch it, dude. And I get in under the line! 20 minutes before deadline, thankyouverymuch!
