10 random things about me

This is what I get for reading Jenn's blog.

10. I don't like mushrooms, almost every time I have them I vomit (there were 2 exceptions). They can be cooked in the dish, I just can't eat them, and not on pizza, because you can never get them all off.

9. I'm sensitive to lactose, I can't drink a glass of milk, but don't ask me to give up cheese, yoghurt and ice cream, I'd rather suffer with the gas (you might not though), which is why I don't say lactose intolerant.

8. It took me 16 years to figure out the irritable bowel was lactose intolerance.

7. I like different cultures and languages.

6. I quit my job last week, that made me very happy.

5. I have a puppy, named Drake, he's 7 months old on Thursday.

4. I don't like it when people call moles and birth marks beauty marks, I have lots and I don't find them beautiful.

3. I have green eyes, I once got contacts to make them blue, as I thought that was nicer, then I realized everyone in my English class had blue or brown eyes. Both of my contacts were ruined within a month, it wasn't a conscious destruction :)

2. I have a small family, but they are important to me.

1. I have the best husband in the world (we've been married 14 months, but I've known him for 14 years).

Plus One

Yesterday was my birthday, hubby woke me up at midnight to give me part 1 of his presents to me, the first 4 Harry Potter books with the new standard paperback size, so pristine they look like they've never been touched by human hands. Last night we got part 2, he's got blond hair and brown eyes, he'll be 4 months old on the 15th. We've called him Drake. He's a golden retriever, he's pretty good too, he didn't whine all night, just slept in his crate. He did have an accident in his crate though last night, being a little older he should also be easier to train and he's past the teething stage so he doesn't chew on everything. Although retrievers like to carry stuff around in their mouths, so we got him a floating kong, a rope and a glow in the dark ball. He also has some puppy cookies for treat when he's good and goes to the bathroom outside. I'll probably be like one of those new parents and be posting lots of cute pictures of my precious little boy .

Ready. Set. Go!

Well after laughing for many months over my friend's blog on the antics of her three boys (mac3mom) I've decided to start a blog myself. Actually this is not my first blog, I have a work blog, but who wants to read about what I discovered today at work? Heck, I don't even want to read it.

Anyway I think this would be a good way to keep my best buddy in the loop about what's up with me, you'd think that would be pretty easy considering I can walk to her house in approximately 20 minutes, or I could pick up the phone, but you know your a geek when...

Right now I'm waiting for it to be 11pm because I have yet another window of testing to do, well at least I'm raking in the OT, pretty nice to have after having bought a house 2 months ago. Hmmm, seems to me that this blog is probably going to be mostly about being a first time home owner. Well enough for now, I've test cases to run.
