Thursday Thirteen #1

Thirteen Things about Tinker

1…. I love shoes! I bet you did not know that. I have over 65 pairs.

2. Lobster is one of my favorite foods!

3. I am currently reading Pride and Prejudice.

4. I was mortified once many years ago. I was at the symphony and during the intermission I went to the refreshment area to get a glass of wine and I literally ran into/bumped into a woman who had the exact same dress on as me. I wanted to sink into the floor. She almost spilled her wine on me!

5. I saved my distant cousins life at a family reunion. He ( about 6 years old) was drowning in a swimming pool at the hotel and no parents were looking at him. Time stood still. I did not know him as I saw him sink below the water. He was in the deep end of the pool. I looked around and no parents were paying attention to the pool at all. I was 22. None of them could swim either..I jumped in and dove down to the bottom and fished him out. Only when I came back up yelling help did any parents turn around. I was shaken for the rest of the day.

6. Seeing Lord of the Dance changed my life! I now love all things celtic!

7. I like my eclectic nature. It makes me stand out in a crowd. Maybe as slightly odd, but I still stand out.

8. I like my sense of adventure. It is just sad that I do not have too many friends who want to do many of the adventurous things I want to do.

9. I am all about pirates right now. (Pirates of the Caribbean) I will a pirate for halloween this year.

10. I like the fact that I am raising dirty Fila differently than I was raised. I am doing a better job that what my mom did with me. Time brings change.

11. I tend to love too hard and too soon which usually results in a broken heart for me.

12. I miss my first love---the first man I was engaged to--he was my high school sweetheart. When I see him now or speak to him, reality sets in. I know why we did not make it. (Thank god)

13. I always have the feeling that something big is lurking just out of my view. Like I am on the cusp of something waiting to happen. I wish it would. I am ready for a big shapeup in my life!

Tug said...

Nice list!! Happy TT..

Tink said...

Welcome to Thirsday Thirteen. ou started with a very interesting list. Nice to meet you!
My TT is about birthday facts.

Gypsy said...

Oh, how I would love to see Lord of the Dance! I used to have a Scottish co-worker who I could entice to display Highland dancing when she'd had a little too much to drink.

My TT is up! And thanks for visiting my blog.

"11. I tend to love too hard and too soon which usually results in a broken heart for me."

Me too! Great post.

Dane Bramage said...

Great list! Welcome to T13! My T13 #10 is up. It is my Favorite Games Edition!

Courtney said...

#5 must have been scary! Thank goodness you were paying attention! As for shoes, well, I guess you could say I am not a shoe-person. I only own 4 pairs, and only 2 of those are worn on a regular basis. lol

Caylynn said...

Quite a list! Wow on saving your cousin's life - thank goodness you were there!

Most of my shoes are running and aerobics shoes. ;)

Deb said...

I wasn't sure whether I was visiting a shoe shopping blog or a personal blog when I got here but I did enjoy your Thursday Thirteen!

Shannon said...

Great list! And what a hero you really are (just for being a great mom...not saving a life.)

I took the challenge:

Have a great Thursday!

Happy Mama to Three said...

We all need to pat ourselves on the back sometimes. Denise had a great idea.

And I can sooo relate to #11


Janet said...

8 & 9: Oh, ME TOO!!!

Thanks for visiting :-)

Danielle said...

OMG--you really like shoes!!!

I've always had a hard time with #11 too, but the good side of it is we tend to appreciate 'the little things' more than those who take their time with love.

Happy TT--good job on your first one!

Knitting Maniac said...

What a cool list!!!! I love it!

Thanks for stopping by mine!

Mary said...

10, 11, and 13 ring home for me. Keep your head up, I love your outlook! :O) Thanks for visiting my list.

Mary said...

Oops, it was another Tink that visited my site. That's ok, I really enjoyed your list too! (I feel like such a dork, lol)

The Shrone said...

If you are into pirates now, do you know about Talk Like a Pirate Day? I only know about it because it's on my birthday LOL!

Thanks for visiting my TT!

Southern Girl said...

I'm the complete opposite when it comes to shoes -- hate 'em! Only have two pair and that's really two more than I want. *g*

Fun list -- good to learn a little something about you. :)

Thanks for visiting my TT!

N. Mallory said...

I love shoes too though I don't think I have as many as you. ;)

My mother thinks it's because I was traumatized in 7th grade by a girl who was richer than me -- I was the queen of hand-me-downs in a private school of well-dressed snobs. The girl mocked me because I only had one pair of tennis shoes.

Now I have running shoes, walking shoes, tennis shoes, cross-trainers...not to mention all the really cute work shoes and weekend shoes.... :P

My Thursday13 is up too.

Natsthename said...

#1 is also for me! When we were in Maine a couple of weeks ago, I ate lobster EVERY DAY!! Woo hoooo!!

Margaret said...

That's a lot of shoes! I used to have lots when I worked in an office and had to dress everyday. Now I think I kept my best and most comfortable and never get to wear them at all. Hmmm, Lobster! Can you believe I didn't ever have it until just last year. (37 yrs) Good thing because it is sooo addictive and YUM! Great 13! -Margie


Great List! Thanks for stopping by.

Diva P said...

Happy Thursday - great list! I am with you on #1 and #9 (but I really just wanna be Capt. Jack's matey).

factor 10 said...

Great list!
(and I loved your cast of shoes)
Happy TT!

Lily said...

Cool list! That is an impressive amount of shoes!!! Thanks for visiting my TT.

Trish said...
