Bloggers Birthdays!

Let's have some fun!

I received this via email and thought the idea was kind of cool! Out of all of the billions of people who live in the world, there has to be somebody born on each date of the year.

We are going to try to accomplish the task of seeing if we can fill the calendar up with a birthday on every day of the year.

So, if you are reading this you MUST leave me a comment with your birthday so that I can update the list. Let's see how long it gets. This will be our big 2007-2008-2009 post. After more than a year, I'd say: Let's see how long it takes!

Simply add a comment (no anonymous, please) with your name (NO LAST names), your birth date (no need for the year), your city and province (or state). I will then add it to the list below.

Tell all your friends!

Let's see if we can do it!! I will not be deleting anybody's name if someone has already gave their name in the slot for the date of your birthday, I'll just add your name beside it!

Let's give it a go!

Nine Things About Me Not Mentioned Before

I have been tagged by Trueself to state nine things about myself, and then tag six others by leaving a comment on their blogs.

So, here are 9 things about me I haven't mentioned here before :

  1. I learned to kiss with the son of a neighbour, under their stairs, in the alley. I remember him asking me if we could kiss like they did in the movies. We would press our lips together and hold that position, just moving our heads a little, for a while. I was about 7 or 8 at the time. Then I got a bit older and was told by a girlfriend to practise on myself – using the inside of my elbow. When I “thought” I was getting somewhat good at this, I told one of my cousin and asked if we could “practise for real” together. I was about 10 or 12 at the time. While “How Deep is Your Love” from the Bee Gees was playing on the stereo, we perfected our technique agreeing before hand which side each of us would turn, which side our heads would tilt, etc. We were very technical and process oriented. He then got a girlfriend and we never kissed again…

  2. In 6th grade our school participated in a regional music contest. We had to write a song (music and lyrics) and if chosen we got the chance to record it. I was part of the school choir and participated in the contest with a friend. Our song was picked and we made it to the semi-finals. A fellow classmate’s song was picked among the 10 finalists. Since we were part of the same choir, our music teacher picked the choir members to represent our school and to record the song. We spent a whole day in a studio singing away my friend’s lyrics. I still remember that day, how long it had been and how many cuts we had to do. The best moment was when the vinyl was distributed and we listened to it. I still have that album.

  3. At some point during my single life I had a lover who was very adventurous and loved to try new things. He would come up with ideas that made me wonder at times. Once he had removed all the sheets from his waterbed and poured baby oil all over it. That was the most slippery surface I’ve ever known. Another time he decided to start sucking my toes. I felt a little awkward at first and was frankly disgusted by it – toes? – eeew! But he kept going and to my surprise I truly enjoyed it. Like, a LOT! Who knew toes were erogenous? I sure didn’t, until then! He had no boundaries and was too willing at times, but it was always interesting, that’s for sure!

  4. Once in high school, some guy told me I had a nice ass, but it was a shame about my face. To this day I still remember the way I felt at that exact moment. I remember every little details of where I was, with whom, etc. The worst part I didn’t even like that guy, who was a jock, a year ahead of me.

  5. I’ve seen my grand mother (my mother’s mom) on more than one occasion, since her death. The last time, I actually also felt her. I was living alone and heard some noise coming from the kitchen (which was facing my room), I sat in bed and saw this really bright light, and my grand mother standing in the middle of my kitchen, in the light, looking at it and saying that she wouldn’t scare me, she only wanted to let me know I’d be ok. She then looked at me, smiled and walked towards me. She sat on my bed, by my feet – I felt the bed move – and put a hand on my legs and told me not to be afraid that they ( my grand father and her) were protecting me and everything would be ok. We talked. I asked her why she was coming to me, and she said that she just had to let me know. She got up, said good-bye and went back into the light. I was sitting in bed, in the dark, looking at my clock radio and sat there, without moving for a while, until I called a friend to come over. She did and to this day I still believe it was not a dream…

  6. I love to do crafts. A few years back I painted some Christmas Balls for friends and family. I also painted some mugs, personalized for each individual. I recently “officially” started doing some scrap booking. I say officially since I’ve been doing it for years before it was the “thing to do” like it is now. I enjoy making things, either painting, collage, sewing, etc.

  7. Yes, I will go there! Once during oral sex, my partner “fell asleep on the job”! He was the type that liked to teased and play games a lot, so when he started to feel “heavy” I first thought he was playing some kind of joke, but then realised that he’d fallen asleep, in between my thighs. The next morning, when we woke up, the poor guy was so embarrassed and wanted to make it up to me, I just thought it was hilarious. The worst part is – and I never told him that – I had fallen asleep too!

  8. Every weekends during the 1978 summer were spent on a camp ground 30 minutes outside Montreal. René Lévesque, Québec's Premier at the time, had won his elections not long before and was touring the province. He ended up at the campground where we were and spent a whole day there during our “Christmas in July”. He had played softball with us and I asked him for his autograph. He kindly signed the piece of scrap paper my dad had given me (scrap, because my father didn’t like him and his political views), talked to me for a while and had taken his Fleur de Lys pin and given it to me. I still have it. I guess for that reason I always liked the man, I guess he had made me feel somewhat special, and I always remembered that… He died in 1987.

  9. When I left my parents’ place it was to move in with my boyfriend. We were together for 6 years, lived together for 2. He was jealous and the day he slammed me into a wall and challenged me to “use my karate” on him was the moment I knew I had to leave. That afternoon he complained about being the last to know what was going on, I told him he was the first person I was telling: I was moving out. From the moment I informed him and the actual day of my departure there was a month. A very stressful month. When I moved out I took all furniture (which was mine), dishes, etc. and left him with the appliances and our cat. He wanted to keep her. The evening I moved out, I was sitting in my new little apartment (went from a nice big duplex to a little old apartment), crying and feeling like crap and totally overwhelmed by all the things I needed to do, I picked up the phone and called him. We were both crying. I was so scared that I had made the wrong decision; I did care for him, a lot. At the time I thought it was love. When I told him I felt lost and afraid sitting in my new place, all by myself, he said: “At least you have a sofa to sit on, unlike me, I’m sitting on fuckin' the floor!” At that moment, I knew I had made the right decision!

And now, my turn to tag 6 people - I choose: -R-, Ananke, DCMM, MollyMcMolly, Elf and Jonniker.

My firsts

Actually stole this from princess diaree, just couldn’t resist, and since I also saw it on preppy girl's I figured might as well post the darn thing!

1.Who was your first prom date? I never went to a prom, not even my own… Boo hoo hoo… so no prom date...

2. Who was your first roommate? When I left my parents’ place it was to move in with my boyfriend S. We had a great place, but our living arrangements didn’t work out for the best… oh well, moved on to better things!

3. What was your first alcoholic drink? I can’t remember the first time I had a sip of beer – knowing my dad I must have been young! But the first drink that I ordered was a screwdriver soon followed by a B-52!

4. What was your first job? Does being raised behind a counter of a restaurant and helping out count as a first job? Humm? The first job I was ever paid for, was watering lawns on a new construction site – did that for a whole summer – every night!

5. What was your first car? A fire truck red Toyota Corolla, that when I sold it, 12 years later, had become pink. What a great car that was!

6. What was your first funeral? Besides my cat, Miquet, it was Clifford’s, the ice deliveryman at the restaurant. I was about 4-5 years old.

7. What was your first broken bone? Both my wrists (at the same time! - you try doing that!!), during a basketball game!

8. Who was your first grade teacher? Sister Irene Hachey. She was a strict but very cool nun! I have a picture of her dancing at a "Sugar Shack" school outing!

9. Where was your first airplane ride to? I flew to Montreal from Amos (northern town in Qc), but I don't really remember it. The first one I remember was the first time I went to Miami!

10. When did you sneak out of your house for the first time? I never did that, and if I did I wouldn’t be here to write about it!

11. Who was your first best friend? My friend Nathalie Cartier, all through primary school. Then I went to a different highschool and we lost touch.

12. Where was your first sleep over? Never did that either… as I kid… Started doing that with my first boyfriend, S, and I was about 19...

13. Who is the first person you call when you have a bad day? My husband.

14. Who's wedding were you in for the first time? I was involved in helping organized the wedding but had no "role" as such in any wedding…

15. What is the first thing you do in the morning? After waking up? Pee!

16. What was the first concert you went to? Can’t remember, but my last one was Jann Arden, was a great show!

17. First tattoo or piercing? My first tattoo was a wildcat’s face and my name in Japanese. Then in 1999 I went back and got a “kanku” (Karate symbol) around the first one. Thinking about getting another one…

18. First celebrity crush? Wayne Gretzky (from the Edmonton’s Oilers at the time) and Gilbert Delorme (with the Montreal Canadian at the time).

19. First non-celebrity crush? I had crushes basically on any boy who looked at me! But then, one summer came Robin, I was about 12, ooohhh how that boy tormented me!

20. First true love? I often thought it was true love, until we broke up and then realised that it wasn’t really it. Then, I would say my favourite current hubby.

Tunes That Taught Me Something...

I thought it was a cool concept when I saw this: You simply have to make a list of tunes that have taught you something in life. Anyway, here is my list...enjoy!

1. The Beatles taught me to let it be.

2. Kiss taught me that I was made for loving you, baby, you were made for loving me.
