Thirteen things about Kimmy... buckle up!

1. I love KFC's mashed potatoes and gravy. Really it's just the gravy... liquid sodium.

2. I have watched the movie Big hundreds of times. When I was sick and missed most of 8th grade I would start the movie in the morning, watch it entirely, stop/rewind and watch it all over again. All. day. long

3. I do that with most movies. If I like it I've seen it over and over and probably back to back.

4. I have a serious crush on this guy, and it started here. Back off Shelli!

5. I prefer peanut M&Ms to plain. And I love me some mint M&Ms. Why do they sell them during Christmas only?

6. I was a competitive swimmer for seven years and miss it.

7. I'm the one that watches swimming on tv.

8. I had Sally Jesse Raphael reading glasses in 7th grade.

9. I have a half brother, a half sister and a step-sister. (I guess that means I have one whole step.) I've always called them my brother and sisters.

10. I love a/c and must have it.

11. I'm addicted to my DVR and onscreen guide.

12. I'm thinking of growing my hair for Locks of Love. But my hair is a slow grower. Plus it's thinning and falling out. 10 inches will take awhile.

13. I love the automatic link. It is wonderful. A great time saver for me so I can get around to more T13's. Plus you're linked up real quick and in a hurry ;)
(To get your own autolink thingy... go here or Email him!.

Okay here I go Kimmy, sugar. (love you..)

#1. ME TOO! Most people grimace and frown but I dig it, I also dip my chicken in it. ~grin~

#3 I have done this since I was little and tend to do it with books as well.

#4. OMG! Me too. me too! In fact that movie was on my rotation of watching a million times.

#5. Yeah I like the peanut ones although I'm down for the plain ones too.

#10. It's a MUST in this household.

#11. I have DVR too through my cable company and I LOVE it. What kind of shows do you watch?

#12. Sorry Kimmy, it's a great idea and if you can do it, then it's fantastic. If not, it truly is the thought that counts and there are other things you can do. Just remember, you inspire us here at your blog.

#13. Hmmm... I can't wait to tell Lena, we both are gonna be all over this idea. Thanks for the link.

Great TT, and I LOVE learning more about you. I'm becoming a tad bit obsessed but NOT to worry. I'll only stalk you during normal business hours. ~wink~

Hi Kimmy! I believe it's my first time to come visit your cool garden and I'm loving it. Pink's my color and I've got flowers on almost anything I own nowadays.

I am lovin' this autolink thing too. mister linkey is awesome! :)

I love the mint M&M's too - I was bummed because they used to have them out all the time..not just seasonal.

Big...I haven't seen that movie in a long time.

And that guy IS hot. And I'm not one to drool over many celebrities.

I can't believe you can still get mint M&Ms. We quit getting them here a long time ago! Bummer because we used to make these awesome Easter cookies with 'em and now we have to use plain ones and crush up Ande's mints to mix in with the dough.

I can watch certain movies over and over again, Pretty Woman and Dirty Dancing and of course Ferris Bueller's Day Off are tops to re-run heaven.

WAH! I want autolink too. The link is not working, so if one of you wonderful people has obtained it, could you please pass it on? I bet he is getting slammed with mail for it, so I thought it would be easier to beg.

BTW - Great thirteen. Are you sure we were not separated at birth? I have Sally glasses currently, I wish I had TIVO for real life conversations an dmy parents used to have to periodically ban certain movies at our house because me and my siblings would watch the same one over and over. My father still goes into convulsions when he hears "Dong, where is grandpa's automobile?"

I enjoyed your list very much Kimmy. I enjoy watching swimming - it is actually the only discipline I watch during the Olympics...I can't even count any more how many times I have cut my hair and than wanted to have it long again - argk.
My T13 is actually located on My Lighter Side. On Sting My Heart I do my Thankful Thursdays. Hope to see you on My Lighter Side...Next week I'll have the auto-link too. It was too late for me today :(

Thanks for stopping by and posting... and I have to agree with Number 1 and 5 for sure. And 10 is a must for sure... And for #12, a few years ago when I had more hair, I wanted to the same, but when I cut it I had no idea that it had to be a certain length and I fell short a few inches in order to donate it. Someday I guess if I can put up with growing it back out.

Anyhow, thanks again and take care!
