28 is Great!


In just over three weeks it's Canada Day. Whoot whoot! Followed by the day we celebrate "the best accident that ever happened." as my mommy would say. Also know as 'the birthday'.
28.

It makes me feel sick, but that could be the latte I just had. Milk makes me bloated. But all in all I tend not to freak out about birthdays, but just enjoy them as they are. This year however there is a change and I can't help but think it's a sign of getting older. I don't want a group going out to the bar. I don't want a big par-tay. I don't care if people really know. I just want a small group of friends to have supper. That's all.

So to continue an ongoing tradition of Too Much Information I give you 28 random things about me.

1.) I was kicked out of swim class and not allowed back when six. A girl took forever on the diving board just staring at the water. I decided to help her out with a friendly shove.


I still can't swim.


2.) To date my birthday have involved; making out with a coworker on a park bench. A lapdance from a stripper named Maria with loose morales. A pseudo kidnapping. A threesome after a box of wine. Almost barfing on a strippers crotch.


3.) I am an exibitionist in the worst way. Clothes are rarely on at home and I don't care if the neighbours see.


4.) I've been a vegetarian for 14 years now but still crave meat when hungover. Don't eat it, but love the smell of it.


5.) I've only been out of B.C. once in the last ten years.


6.) I'm not well travelled.


7.) Sometimes I think peeing is the best feeling in the world.


8.)Washing tupperware freaks me out, so I usually just wait til it's moldy and gross and throw it out. Which is why the disposable cheapie ones are awesome.


9.) I hate chick flicks.


10.) But I'm a hopeless romantic.


11.) I most relate to Miranda on SATC, not Carrie.


12.)I live off Clamato juice and go through about 2 jugs a week. I drink about 15 glasses of water a year, tops. I think water tastes yicky.


13.) I'm not very good at dealing with anger so often when angry I'll dance around my living room like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance until I'm sweaty and exhausted. I also have very forgiving apartment mates below for putting up with it.


14.) Very few people in my day to day life know about my blog and I really like it that way.


15.) I got in trouble in class when I was seven for making out with a boy in the back of the class during story time. His name was Kevin. He dumped me in grade three for a different girl but I didn't reallt have time to be mad at him cause we moved that year anyways.


16.) I was eighty percent deaf until I was almost seven and after many extensive surgeries my hearing was almost fully corrected. It's why I learned sign language at the time too and still have a bit of a raspy voice from not developing my vocal chords til a later age.


17.) My middle name is Charlene. I was named by my dad. My mom was out of it and drugged so he took the opportunity to name he after a character on the tv show Dallas he had a crush on. When mom came to she wasn't impressed.


18.) I think the world would be a better place if everyone ate more gelato.


19.) LOLcatz rock my world and I don't care what anyone sez.


20.) If you like a boy and he's french, don't say you speak french to try to impress him when you don't. You'll just end up making an ass out of yourself. Merde.


21.) Vibrators scare me.


22.) I tend to judge people that don't watch or like Family Guy. Sorry, but it's true.


23.) I've made out with almost every female friend I have and at least half my guy friends. How do you tell that to a guy you've started dating?


24.) If I ever find myself in a place with lotsa money, I will promptly go to the bank and ask for it in American dollar bills (cause it has to be dollar bills and loonies would hurt). I then plan on going to a hotel with a bed with crisp white cotton sheets and rolling around and throwing the money much like in a movie scene.


25.) I'm not where I thought I would be at 28. It's not a good thing or a bad thing, but it's just a thing.


26.) I tend to be judgemental of others and am trying to work on that.


27.) I tend to be the last woman a guy dates before he goes on and marries the next girl. This has happened at least four times. I'm a walking, talking bachelor party.


28.) I have a professional job I love. But some days I just really wanna be a stripper.

a "helpful shove" eh? that line made me laugh out loud

Maxie said...

we have sooo much in common from this list.

I most identify with Miranda too... and I don't run into people very often that say that.

It's Me! said...

And every little thing on that list makes you who you are and all the more loved for it! (PS, you're my hero: "don't tell him you speak french"...how long did that take to backfire?)

The Chronicles of a Fashionista in PDX said...

I agree... peeing does fee good lol

Meghan said...

Deutlich-people are ungrateful of friendly behavior, I swear.

Maxie- we're a rare breed. Like dolphins with laser beams in their mouths.

Jess-about 4.38 seconds.

Fashionista- especially after drinking!

Mike said...

Well, can we have pictures of you in your apartment? Please?

Also, happy birthday and stuff. 28 isn't so bad... on december of 07 I turned not in my 20's any more.

You at least have two more years!

Roland Hulme said...

AWESOME POST!

"I decided to help her out with a friendly shove."

When I was, like, 5, I did the same thing to a Swiss kid at the holiday resort. My brother dived in to save him and my parents yelled at him for getting his clothes wet.

"A threesome after a box of wine."

Now THAT I'd love to read about!

"I am an exibitionist in the worst way. Clothes are rarely on at home and I don't care if the neighbours see."

Wow, you must have a huge heating bill! :-)

"Sometimes I think peeing is the best feeling in the world."

TMI...! Cringe!

"I most relate to Miranda on SATC, not Carrie."

You are the first person I've EVER known who's said that. BTW, if my wife has a girl, she's being called Miranda.

"I live off Clamato juice and go through about 2 jugs a week. I drink about 15 glasses of water a year, tops. I think water tastes yicky."

You think water tastes icky so you drive CLAMATO JUICE? With clam in it? Iiiiiiiiiccccccccccckkkkkkkk!

"I'm not very good at dealing with anger so often when angry I'll dance around my living room like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance until I'm sweaty and exhausted."

To be honest, more people should do that! Instead of yelling/hitting/brooding.

"Very few people in my day to day life know about my blog and I really like it that way."

Me too - all the more reason to tell us about that threesome. :-)

"...and still have a bit of a raspy voice from not developing my vocal chords til a later age."

Girls with raspy voices are hot, don't you know anything? :-)

"...name he after a character on the tv show Dallas he had a crush on."

Hee Hee. I remember that show!

"I think the world would be a better place if everyone ate more gelato."

Is that, like, ice cream?

"LOLcatz rock my world and I don't care what anyone sez."

1st website I visit every morning (erm... after yours, of course.)


"Vibrators scare me."

Why don't blondes use vibrators? They chip their teeth.

Snigger.

Okay, sorry.

"I tend to judge people that don't watch or like Family Guy. Sorry, but it's true."

There are people who don't like the Family Guy? That's like not liking chocolate. I don't believe it.

"I've made out with almost every female friend I have..."

This would be an excellent follow up to the post you're going to write about your threesome.

"I tend to be the last woman a guy dates before he goes on and marries the next girl. This has happened at least four times. I'm a walking, talking bachelor party."

Like Good Luck Chuck only a pretty redhead girl! I see a movie here...

"I have a professional job I love. But some days I just really wanna be a stripper."

This is an excellent follow-up topic, once you've written about the threesome and making out with all your female friends!!

After reading #3, numbers 4 through 28 were all envisioned with you naked.....you should have saved #3 for last.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

you hate chick flicks but youre a hopeless romantic? that is a rare breed.

Nick said...

Where the hell was I for numbers 2,3, 23?

Jeez, I thought we were friends!

Cat said...

I wish I could be 28 forever.... but that's all gonna change in a few months... sigh...

moooooog35 said...

You had me up until the Clamato juice.

Then it all just went to Hell.

Meghan said...

Mike- no pics. I already have enough bad pics to ruin a career in politics. Why would I encourage more?

Roland- you, my friend, are awesome. Best comment ever. to reply....my place is always naturally stifling hot...i won't make you any ceasars if you ever come to visit...no you can't hear the stories...give me your address and I'll find a way to send you gelato...LOL blonde jokes...

Lotus-you must have a weird image of me running away from vibrators, drinking clamato and watching family guy naked. actually, that's fairly accurate so I rest my case.

Chelsea- it is an odd mix. I blame Coldplay.

Nick-when we hung out all the time I had six roomates. They tend to frown on naked Fridays.

Cat- embrace the age, accept the age, then bastardize the age anyways.

Moooog-THAT is the dealbreaker for you!?!

Jamie said...

I kind of love you.

Check yo email, girl.

surviving myself said...

I can't swim either. I challenge you to a drown-off!

Wait.

That doesn't make any sense.

Julia said...

Wow. You're the only person I know to be kicked out of SWIMMING LESSONS. Although, why bother? In our town they always make the poor kids do their lessons early in the morning so the pool is always FREEZING. Why put yourself through that? ;)

So@24 said...

This is honestly one of the best "random trivia" posts I've come across.

I usually just skim and give up. But this one I read all the way through

lukkydivz said...

Happy budday dear.

I was LOLing at half the thing u wrote about yourself :P

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

You are a fascinating individual. I'm glad I found you.

Please know I've resolved to eat more gelato.

Meghan said...

Jamie- i kinda love you too and can't wait to be a guest blogger. I feel so honoured :)

Chris- betcha I can sink first!

Julie- exactly! No lesson learned there. Ha, fooled them.

So@24-thanks, that's really sweet! Glad I didn't bore you to tears.

Lukkydivz-thanks darlin :)

Lightning- glad you're doing your part to help out ;)

Liquid said...

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! I am enjoying yours as well.
Happy 28.......I can barely remember mine.

Have a great one and I'll be back soon and often!

cassette45 said...

haha wow. I just popped by here from so@24, but damn girl! I'm in love! Reading this TMI list had me nodding, exclaiming, and giggling. We are too alike (see #9, 10, 18 & 23). Can't wait to keep reading!

Jenny said...

Hihi, it would be funny if you got 28 comments on this post. Not much left now xD
About swimming, gosh, I have had difficulties with it as well.
Wow, I am impressed over how long you have been vegetarian! I have not been vegetarian that long, but I don't think I will fall back into eating meat ever again either.
Charlene is a very beautiful name. :)

Meghan said...

Liquid- as long as you wake up with pants, birthday memory is onluy optional :P

Casette-thanks for the visit. Always nice to find another blogger with common ground :)

Jenny- thanks for the visit. We should make waterwings have a comeback.

Leanne said...

hellllllllo wifey, um just had to comment on yours and chris's drown off...you'll win tits up! Those puppies are definitely buoyant.

Leanne said...

soooooooo I guess that means you'd lose.....atleast i'd still have you *Wink

Paula said...

I most relate to Charlotte. Which worries me slightly. Especially as part of me ALSO would quite like to be a stripper. A pole-dancing one at that. In fact, on my way home tonight I was actually composing a pole dance in my head to a tune on my mp3 player. Is that odd?

Meghan said...

Leanne- you and your logic when it comes to boobies. Hehehehe. Boobies.

Paula- no, cause even Charlotte had a bit of Harlette in her. Get it! ;)

Arun PK said...

haha :)... very interesting Meghan.. n peein is the most wonderful feelin in the whole wide world :))
