My dad’s birthday is tomorrow!

My dad’s birthday is tomorrow, so for day 13 of 30 days of lists, I thought I’d list as many things, (as I can come up with,) that I associate with the word “birthday.”

  1. 1. Cake.
  2. 2. Card.
  3. 3. Gift (or, gifts.)
  4. 4. Candles, (although less so as we get older.)
  5. 5. Going out to dinner, because in our family we have a tradition, the person celebrating picks the restaurant, and we go eat there.
  6. 6. Drama, but that’s mostly for my birthdays and no one elses in the family.
  7. 7. This song:

  8. 8. This song:

  9. 9. One more song, and it’s this one:

I hope my dad has a happy birthday whatever we do!

30 lists day 12.

Some things about my hair, just because.

  1. 1. It’s brown.
  2. 2. It’s short right now, I just had it cut this month.
  3. 3. I have a lot of cowlicks.
  4. 4. It’s thick, (OK, very thick!)

30 lists day 11.

I skipped 30 lists yesterday, so I’m going to do 2 tonight. For day 11, I’m going to list my favorite wrong number calls.

  1. 1. The ones where they say, “I got the right number, but the wrong name, those are always hilarious because they’re usually a charity calling from overseas.
  2. 2. Someone butt-dialed me on accident last week, I have no idea who it was, or how they got this number, but they butt-dialed me twice!
  3. 3. The one’s where someone calls, asks for some random person, then calls right back and asks for the same person 2-3 more times, it’s like, didn’t you understand the first or second time? that person doesn’t live here!

Events of today, (in list form, of course.)

A lot of things happened today that surprised me, so I thought I’d make a list of them.

  1. 1. First of all, plumming took place here today, not that that surprised me, but some things that were said during the plumming process did.
  2. 2. The state says my new caregiver has to manage my medications for me, but I’ve done this all my life. Anyway, what surprised me was when setting up the medications, (even though I told her I already took them today,) she said we should start with today instead of tomorrow for the morning ones. She also put the night ones beside my bed, which means I have to bring water into my bedroom, (uh… we’ll just see where that water ends up, most likely on the floor.)
  3. 3. Said during plumming by my landlord while making a mess on the floor, “I’ll just let the cleaning lady clean that up.”
  4. 4. Said during plumming by my landlord’s assistant, (and this one really did scare me!) “you surf the internet and it talks to you? That’s Awsom!” Me: “yeah, it probably drives downstairs neighbor crazy,” because sometimes when readjusting speakers for streaming or listening to music, I accidentally turn them up a bit too loud for a second. Then landlord’s assistant said, “I can hear it, (talking about my screen reader at this point,) and I don’t complain, because my son is louder than anything.” Uh… yeah, ya think? That kid runs all! the! time! I understand that he’s 3 years old and such, but wow… seriously! I never complain, because he’s 3, but that little thing he said right there made me plug in a headset and want to wear it forever, despite the fact that it gives me a horrible headache. I understand they aren’t constantly listening, but they can listen close enough to get a good picture of my internet activities, and that’s well… what the NSA is already doing, so I don’t need people upstairs and downstairs doing it just because I use a screen reader.
  5. 5. Dear Mr. “I can hear it but I don’t complain,” you guys are plumming, which means you come in and out and in and out, and I’m completely cool with that, just don’t lock the flippin door every single time, which makes me have to run to get it every! single! time! Seriously, that was really annoying!
  6. 6. Said at the end of plumming by me, “I’m officially plummed!” MR. “I can hear it but I don’t complain” found that one to be absolutely hilarious! Actually, that was just the sewer pipes, they’ll do the water pipes next week.
  7. 7. Said during my landlord during plumming earlier in the week while opening in the wall, “write this down.” My first thought was “OMG!” Then when I told him I couldn’t write, his response was, “what have you been doing all these years?”

Words that describe ice cream.

So the prompt says, “List 10 words that describe ice cream,” but I’m not sure if I’ll get to 10.

  1. 1. Cold, (obviously, I hope so, because if it isn’t frozen, then the freezer isn’t working.)
  2. 2. Wet, (to some extent, especially after it melts.)
  3. 3. Creamy, (which is usually another obvious one, unless you’re talking about sorbet.
  4. 4. Mostly sweet, unless you’re having a different flavor that isn’t.
  5. 5. Messy, (if you eat it in a cone.)
  6. 6. Something I have in my freezer right now.
  7. 7. A very good thing.

Well, I didn’t get to 10, but that’s close enough, I also don’t think that’s what the person who wrote the prompt had in mind, (but oh well.)

Things I wanted to be when I grew up.

Everyone always asks a kid, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” I always had an answer, so here’s my list.

  1. 1. A nurse, from like 1st-4th grade.
  2. 2. A craftor.
  3. 3. A figure skater.
  4. 4. A teacher.
  5. 5. An Olympian, it got to a point where it didn’t matter what, I wanted to be in the Olympics. I really did enjoy swimming though.
  6. 6. I wanted to be on Jeopardy, yeah, that doesn’t have anything to do with careers but OK.
  7. 7. I wanted to fly in space, (I’d still like to someday, but I’d settle for a 0G flight instead.)

Things I did today.

  1. 1. Went to the bank.
  2. 2. Did laundry.
  3. 3.Planned recipes for like the next month.
  4. 4. Stood by as my landlord opened up the wall underneath my kitchen sink, broke the pipe, then fixed the pipe again.

5 Thoughts at this exact moment.

I have a prompt that says exactly that, so for day 6 of 30 lists, here are 5 thoughts at exactly 11:08 PM, (I really need to do these things earlier!)

  1. 1. I really need to get this done and go to bed, (and this is the reason why these things need to get done earlier.)
  2. 2. I’m not sure if I wrote about my grandma breaking my TV while she was here on 4/13, but she came last Friday with her boyfriend and he fixed it.
  3. 3. I have a new caregiver starting here tomorrow.
  4. 4.I think from now on though, she’s going to want to come on Monday’s, which will probably present a problem at Healing Rooms. When I explained that to them today, they were all begging me not to leave.
  5. 5. Of course I could just switch to Saturday healing rooms, but I still have to go to the luncheon once a month.

Things on my desk right now.

I got behind on 30 lists last night, but I’m just picking up where I left off, (since that’s what I did in the first place.)So for day 5, here’s a list of things on my desk.

  1. 1>My phone.
  2. 2. A couple dishes.
  3. 3. A water bottle.
  4. 4. A broken USB headset.
  5. 5. The other USB headset is on the floor.
  6. 6. A whole lot of stuff that I don’t really need, that covers one whole side of the desk.

Favorite kinds of tea.

So for day 4 of 30 lists, I thought I’d make a list of my favorite kinds of tea. I only drink herbal tea, (I think black tea is too bitter.)

  1. 1. Lemon Zinger, (actually, I’ll drink any of the zinger teas.)
  2. 2. Mint, actually, the kind I like is straight up peppermint.
  3. 4. Anything with the currant plant in it, (usually.) Because currant is extremely sweet, and I don’t even have to add sugar.
