    I'm first!

    I really do want to know why you have a broken gerbil cage under your desk. Very interesting!

    All awesome ideas. My vote is for 13 things that you do not apologize for. I'm too much of a sucka and need to read some strong behavior examples.

    Red said...

    Wow, you’re full of interesting ideas!

    I think Number 1 has the potential to run and run... And I’m also intrigued by number 8.

    I love hoaxes, so that would be a good one. I also would like to know more of your irritating phrases. Strange medical terms and conditions is one that would be right up my alley. My TT is up!

    Trish said...

    Totally agree with 1... and I'd love to hear more! :) 4 sounds interesting - so does 5 and 6. I think I dated 7. Ya know what? They *all* sound good. Guess I'm not much help. :)

    Happy TT! Mine are up.

    Froggie Mama said...

    I'd like to hear about 13 of your favorite moments! :) It's all about the moments in life, right?
    Good idea for a T13! I'll be back to visit again!! :)

    Since I, too, suffer from PCOS, I would like you to do that one! I would say that I am a "Cyster" but if I were making a list of the good and bad things about PCOS, that would go on my bad list.

    My list is up!

    Karen said...

    Tricia said...

    Christine said...

    Those are all great topics I'd enjoy reading about. But I especially want to see #5.

    Jennifer Sprague, All Natural Mommies said...

    How on earth do you pick....I would love to read about them all, what a great imagination you have, last night I was struggling with coming up with a topic!

    colleen said...

    That was great! A post within a post! I'd like to hear more about what's under your desk!

    Can you believe that I forgot yesterday was Thursday. It's like I created my ow time zone. I posted 13 today! (Friday).

    I wanna know what else you hide under your desk, the gerbil cage got me thinking

    Sandi the Red said...

    I like 13 phrases that I find irritating-my current top one is when people say "I'm sorry"-let's face it, when someone says "I'm sorry" they are NOT-they might feel a bit bad for you but they are never sorry.
