Wednesday Weirdness

Just because I felt like playing. You too?

1. Would you rather be 3 inches taller, or 3 inches shorter than you already are?
Taller. I don't think a lot of people want to be smaller. I'm not that small but if you take those 3 inches off, I would be.

2. What are 3 words that could never be used to describe you?
Selfish, dumb/not bright, slow worker.

3. Have you ever eaten something at the grocery store while you were shopping, prior to buying it? Did you pay for it when you got to the check out line?
Nope, I'm a good girl ;-).

4. If you could have any 3 materialistic things in this world without paying a single cent for any of them, what would they be and why?
- a big house with a pool and a library: who wouldn't want a house, and the library is just because I love reading
- a nice car (silver, sporty, cabriolet maybe?): again who wouldn't want a nice car
- life time ticket for Disney World and SeaWorld: just because I'm a sucker for Disney, orca's, dolphins and penguins.

5. Have you ever fallen asleep or nodded off during sex before?
Nope, I've wanted to, though. I was soooo tired but it just didn't seem right to dooze off. I wouldn't want it the other way around either.

6. What are 3 jobs you’d leave your current job for? If you don't have a current job, just list 3 jobs you would like to have.
Right now I'm a secretary on a Human Resources Department
- working at Disney
- working with dolphins (I never had biology so that's out of the question)
- hosting/planning big events

7. Do you or have you ever answered the phone during sex?
Sort of. When my phone rang we stopped and after the call we continued.

So apparently I didn't post pictures of my little doggie (well...officially it's my moms, but he I still live at home), and I probably haven't posted about him either.
We used to have a dog (golden retriever) but she died about 3,5 years ago, the day after my birthday (she was supposed to have her shot on my bday but she had her last bit of energy and was really puppylike on my bday so my mom didn't want to ruin my bday, Lizzy had just turned 12 and was sick for over six months).
Since my mom is a housemom, she's around the dog all day and she's so involved that she didn't want a dog again, because it caused her too much pain when the previous one died. But me and my brother (mostly my brother) kept trying if we could get a new dog. A year ago mom started looking for a dog. She wanted a smaller dog than a goldie but easy to handle. Now I can't say that a dachshund is an easy dog (but we just got lucky) but that's the dog that my mom wanted. In the beginning of January she started to check with dog breeders. Ow on a side note if you want a dog it is not as easy as it is in the States (my American aunt wanted to go to someone to pick up a dog). My mom saw that one of the good breeders still had a dog at home, so she went to check it out. On Friday I went with her to pick the little one up. It's a wired-haired dwarf dachshund, so he's even a size smaller than the "normal" dachshund.

But he's so cute!

He's called Harvey. Who can guess where the name comes from? It's a dog name in a famous movie. I know everyone has seen it, but most people can't remember the name of the dog. mom did.

This is Harvey the day we got took him home. He's soooo tiny (he was 2.6 kilograms, now he's 4.6 kilograms).

He just loves the sun. Even if there's just a small ray of sun, that's where he'll be.

Harvey at Tzigane's house. Tzigane is a boucheron. That's a size bigger than a big dog. Her toy is as big as our doggie :D. Tzigane was staying at our place last week so we had a big and small dog.

And this is just a cute pic of him.

He's almost 10 months. He was born on October 4th, World Animals day! :D. Our first dog (also a golden) was born on the same day and the second one (Lizzy) was born on December 5th. For us that's a day that has something to do with st. Nicolas (we get presents on the evening before his birthday on the 6th, so we got an extra present when Lizzy was born, the breeder had called us immediately).

The hating part

So how was everyone's weekend? Mine was okay, if you leave out the "hating" part.

After work on Friday I met up with by bff. I hadn't really talked to her in ages. And we both needed to update our love lives to each other. She broke up with a guy because of the many many problems they had (he had actually, and him being in debt wasn't one of them) but they haven't moved on ever since. They still love and want each other but without the problems, and everyone knows that won't work. So they are still trying to figure out what they want to do, sigh.

She told me that 3x and I are not giving "us" a name, that you are in a relationship if you aren't allowed to date others. Well...I told her that we aren't having a relationship, and that we'll just wait and see what is going to happen.

On Saturday I went shopping for sunglasses and a watch. You do not want to go shopping with me if I'm buying specific stuff because I'm picky. Nothing is right. When after 2 hours I finally had a watch that would still fit if it was made smaller I didn't want to have it (just yet) because I needed options. I drove my mom (and our little doggie) crazy. I did get new sunglasses though.

In the evening 3x picked me up to go to a friend. But oh my, was is his girlfriend dumb and her friends and family (brother, cousins) even more so. 3x and I had fun, making jokes that they didn't understand (and they weren't that difficult to understand).

When he dropped me of in the middle of the night is when the hating part started. Oh my. In the last month he had let me sort of forget that we also had a hating part in our love/hate relationship. He knows just how to annoy me. I wanted to make sure that we were on the right page considering his fourth chance. He acted like he didn't understand what I was saying. ARGH!! I just said goodnight and walked away but he wouldn't leave. And the more I get annoyed the bigger his smile gets, grr. But in the end I got what I wanted (duh :P) and we talked about that this wasn't a relationship. "This" would last longer than a day, no others if so be honest, and just have fun. So not the "bad' parts of a relationship, no obligated stuff.

Ow I have to work (yes I can finally log in at work). Talk to you later!

Three times a charm

I've been MIA lately. I've been reading most of the blogs that I like to read. But from work I'm not allowed to write a new post :S. I don't know why it's blocked.
But here I am. It took me a while to find a way around it. But I can write my posts and e-mail them home and post them then.

So the story about 3x a charm. I've already mentioned him in one of my previous posts but I'll try to give you the whole story. Warning this is going to be a long post.

I met him about 10 years ago, when there was an open day at my high school (we have a different school system in the Netherlands). I was a first year then and so was he. I was guiding possible candidates through the school (after primary school, when you are about 12 years you can choose the high school you want to go to). 3x was walking around with a camera. And one of the things that I hate is being in front of a camera. So who became his target for the day? You guessed right, bugging me with his camera.
After that day everytime I saw him in the schools corridors I hit him, on the head or the stomach. Just because I was still so pissed at him.

The second schoolyear he started to hang out with me and my friends in the breaks. And started chasing me with the classbook (in that book the teachers kept the absence of the students, and of course I was in charge of the one in my class, no it wasn't to suck up to teachers but to get a "get out of class free" pass, because I "accidentally" forgot it). Then somewhere in the third year he started dating my best friend. They dated for almost 9 months but he broke up with her because he was in love with someone else (yeah right, at the age of 15). And he had already been in love with her (the other girl) before they (he and my bff) started dating. He never told her that that was the reason but he did tell me. As naive as I was, I never guessed who the other girl was. Well...I found out about 2 weeks after they broke up. I never meant to hurt my bff but I was too late with a proper reaction when he kissed me (number 1). But she wasn't around but other friends were so she was bound to find out. This happened on a Friday or Saturdayevening and I wouldn't see her before Mondaymorning, so I sick from the kiss until I saw her. Then it took one week before 3x and I started dating. That lasted for 2 weeks because our holidays and everything crossed so I didn't see him until the fourth year. He didn't join us during the breaks anymore, we did see him quite often and during the breaks when we saw each other we updated on how our lives were going.

In 2002 my then bf cheated on my with my bff (yes the same one, and she's still my best friend). On the day we (the bf and I) broke up, we were at a birthday party were 3x also was. So I kissed with him (number 2) and the ex-bf started dating my bff.

When my final year started I accompanied the first years on camp. One of my friends signed us in, but because I was absent for the first week she sort of grouped with another friend. So there I was, with no roomie, and in the boys department. There was a girl, a mixed, and a boys department. And I was in a walkthrough room in the boys department, just my luck. But 3x was there as well, and because those boys were "threatening me" to put toothpaste on my face, he grabbed my stuff and took them to his room. No need to explain where we ended up; kissing in one bed (instead of having a bed of our own) (number 3).

Since then I saw him every now and then. Always fun but nothing more.
Then came the Friday I've already posted about. He wanted me to give him another try. But I wasn't having it and said 3 times is a charm. And I was still going back and forth with Tiny. Although that 3x became very interesting I kept him off. At the end of the evening it was 9x a charm, according to him that is.
Then came the bff's birthday party, that we both attended as well as my cousin. Who would reply with "Three times is a charm, but sometimes you need a forth" to 3x question How many times is a charm.

This was the start of a long "relationship" of flirty texts back and forth. I wasn't planning on giving him another try because he cheated on every girlfriend he had after me.
In June we went to town for drinks. A few weeks later we went bowling with a friend of 3x and his girlfriend. When my parents were on holiday, I had to cook for myself since my little brother was home late. I don't cook for myself, I just can't bother. So because I had to eat healthy I invited 3x (only for one evening, I already filled the other evenings with other people). Then was his graduation party (from college), I was the last one to leave. The Friday after he took me out to dinner and a movie (Kungfu Panda, hilarious). During the movie he thought he could make his move and tried to kiss me. I could avoid him, pushed him back in his seat and told him that he needed to try harder.

Last weekend he took me to a party from one of his friends from school (1.5 hour drive) and he would pick me up on Sunday at 9.30 AM!!! I know he doesn't like to drive when he can drink but he said that he would drive. I know that he still drives when he drinks. And his friends still get in the car with him. He knows I won't get in the car (I gave him dirty looks when he wanted to order another beer during drinks and dinner, then he ordered something else, good boy want a cookie :P). But now we were so far from home, I checked the internet for the nearest taxi company and hotel, so that when he would drink too much (he can have one but that's it) I could call for a taxi who could bring us to a hotel. But he came with a car from work (he works at a car dealership) so he couldn't drink and I couldn't drive instead (not insured). I was in bed at 3.30 and had to get out at 8.30, yuck.
He picked me up at 9.15. We were going to a cabriolet tour that he sponsored in name of his work. We were the youngest couple with the most expensive car. Everyone thought that we were married!! Yeah right, did you see a ring on my finger? Did you see us kiss? No so back off.

The whole weekend was great fun, he did try to kiss me a few times but he just got a normal quick kiss and not the kind he was hoping for. Because we were spending so much time together I was being to think that maybe we could start dating. So on Monday we had a text message discussion and it ended with that we would try (it started with What if I give you a fourth chance). And that we would be honest and tell each other if there was someone else. He wants to stay friends (me too but well if he cheats on me and then lies about it, he's going through a tough time before he can be my friend again) so I think he would be honest. And we can't even lie to each other via text so face to face it is even more difficult. We are too much a like and know each other too good, that we could pull it off to lie.

I haven't seen him since last weekend so we'll see what happens this weekend.

So this was the story about 3x who is going to be 4x soon. Hope to keep you updated.

So much for blogging more often :s. But work has been sort of crazy. I'm not that busy (sometimes I think that I'm going crazy if I have to work slower), but they sort of watch your use of internet more strict :s.

But I'll try to give you an update on 3 times a charm soon.

New layout

I was tired of my old layout but I'm not happy with this one either. But it can do while I figure out how to make my own template.

Any tips, suggestions where I can find information? Blogger isn't much of a help, or I'm just looking in the wrong places.
