Quiz time!

Tomorrow is my birthday. I noticed today I had 10,478 comments on my site. WHAT??? I had to look 4 times. I thought it was 1,478 but no it was 10 thousand. Dude. I don't ususally look at my stats because I find it causes unhealthy behavior of obsession. But with the new layout for blogger it was right there (along with stats on posts which I don't like actually)
So here is my request.
6 is my jam. I was born at 3:06 in room 306 on October 6 and I weighed 6 lbs. Is there any way possible I could get 122 comments by tomorrow afternoon at 3:06pm? Making it 10,600 total!
I feel silly asking that but I just thought it would be neat. I know a sure fire way to get you all to come out and play.

LETS DO A QUIZ!

1. When is your birthday?
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
3. Fondest birthday memory?
4. Worst birthday?
5. Best present ever?
6. Worst present?
7. Ever have a surprise party?
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)

As always please copy and paste all the questions into your response.

All about getting you to 122! I am like this with 577 - it's in my SSN, my first phone #, my 2nd phone #, 3 credit cards over my life. So I get you on this # and well what a fun birthday present!

Allie (Wardrobe Oxygen) said...

So anyway, my answers:
1. January 28th
2. I am the stereotypical Aquarian.
3. My 3rd grade birthday where my mom baked me a purple cake covered with purple-stained coconut because it was my favorite color & food. We all had black teeth from it.
4. Most of mine in elementary school because I would either be sick or there would be a blizzard and no party.
5. I like that my husband comes to my office on my birthday, brings flowers and Emerson, and takes me home early. It's a fun tradition.
6. Can't think of one
7. I don't think so other than my bridal shower. Wish it wasn't a surprise, I would have worn something else...
8. I would want a classic house party like we had this weekend. A band rocking out, a keg, people everywhere and me in a fantastic ensemble!

Fun!

1. When is your birthday? My birthday is October 18th.
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? I'm a Libra, the scales.
Libra's supposedly like balance and I'm totally that girl. I don't like rocking the boat and I like things to be on an even keel. Not that I believe in that stuff or anything. ;)
3. Fondest birthday memory? Hmmm....probably the time my mom got a huge truck and filled it with hay and took me and my friends to a local park for a hayride and cookout. My mom threw awesome parties!
4. Worst birthday? Would probably be time I spent my birthday doing pre-op because of a miscarriage I'd just had. Sorry to be a downer, but you asked! :P
5. Best present ever? Probably the beautiful opal bracelet that my husband got me (also partially because of the miscarriage mentioned above). I had been coveting the bracelet for a while.
6. Worst present? Nothing. Yup, that's right. One year I got nothing. Not a good year.
7. Ever have a surprise party? I have not ever had a surprise party and am not really sure that I want one.
8. If you woke up tomorrow and SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party, what theme would you like it to be? I would like for it to be a spa day party -- just me and my girlfriends sitting around drinking mimosas and getting facials and doing our nails and reading trashy magazines.

I will start

LETS DO A QUIZ!

1. When is your birthday?

October 6th

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?

Libra. Yeah I know some and it sounds like me
LIKES
The finer things in life
Sharing
conviviality
Gentleness
DISLIKES
Violence
Injustice
Brutishness
Being a slave to fashion

Which is pretty much me. I think anyone who knows me would agree with that. Well except the sharing thing. I would rathar give you the shirt off my back then share it with you.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
my 30th my husband surprised me with a trip to NYC and my first broadway show and then breakfast with my BFF since I was 6. (sadly we don't talk now but I think of it fondly)

4. Worst birthday?
Look away mom.
My mom walked out on my dad on my birthday.

5. Best present ever?
Gabby Luella my cabbage patch kid I got the same day my parents split. It was the last thing they gave me together. (this is silly but since my bday is in october. I got it before it was popular and that insane xmas where people were going nuts over them. My parents were actually scared of me taking her in public because people were so nuts)

6. Worst present?
hrm. I know I asked this question but I don't know the answer.... This isn't a worst present but a few years ago a friend sent me this GORGEOUS bouquet and I was VIOLENTLY allergic to it. I mean I couldn't be within 10 feet of it without my throat closing. It was SOOO pretty though.

7. Ever have a surprise party?
I did. I had a surprise bridal shower and a surprise 6th birthday.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
Old timey carnival. I just read night circus and the idea of that appeals to me. Old fashioned carnival and circus theme. But not like scary clown.

byhillary said...

I had another answer for best present. My dad flew down to Miami where I lived for my 15th birthday because it was my first birthday I was going to be away from him. He took me to Key West and we went to seance. It was such a great present. He tried to swim with the dolphins too but the wait list was a year long so we went to the aquarium instead.

KayeStar said...

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY HILLARY!!


1. When is your birthday?
9/14/80 at 3:33am
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Sun is Virgo, Rising is Leo and Moon is Scorpio. I don't do regular sun sign astrology as i think a persons 10 signs really dictate how they are (and why they dont seem a typical Virgo, Libra, Etc.) So i do believe my signs reflect who i am, esp my moon sign which rules my emotional side.
3. Fondest birthday memory?
Last year for my 30th, the husband and I took a long weekend in St petersburg, FL. Beach, Dolphins, Theme Parks, DALI MUSEUM!!
4. Worst birthday?
Second Grade. AT lunch you got a balloon on your bday and as i was leavign lunch someone thru a rock at it and pooped it. Ever since then weird and bad things usually happen around my birthday!
5. Best present ever?
for my 26th bday, my mom snet me my "Old Bald Monkey" my beloved toy from when i was a baby. So sentimental!
6. Worst present?
Funny enough it was for my 26th bday as well. Super allergic reaction to something I ate at a Hibachi place. Hives all over even inside my mouth.
7. Ever have a surprise party?
Ugh, yes. Last year for my 30th. I usually dont have parties and dont like attention on me (reason I eloped). But my sneaky sister managed to get together friends from all over the Country to fly in to surprise me. I walked into her house seen a bunch of people (didnt even realize who was there) and turned around and walked out and started crying. I had to compose myself before i could go back in. As much as I hated being the center of attention once i realized how much went into it and those people all came for me i was so touched.
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? Oh dear. I have never thought of this. So Im going with the first thing that popped into my head, which is copmpletely obnoxious... Dr Seuss Zombie Costume Party.. Dont ask!!

Cassykins said...

1. When is your birthday?
9/7/1984 (at 10:07 in the AM)

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Virgo. Not really sure if I'm like it or not. Perhaps that's where I get my prudish tendencies. I am not organized, though, and I think that's supposed to be a big Virgo "thing."

3. Fondest birthday memory?
I had a few of my best friends over in 5th grade and we played with (kiddie) makeup and then had "caterpillar" races in our sleeping bags.

4. Worst birthday?
I had a shared birthday with my bff, but for some reason no one who attended knew it was my birthday or acknowledged me. I wound up leaving early and crying the whole hour drive home (which was silly, but I still did it)

5. Best present ever?
There is a tradition in my family that girls get their birthstone in a ring for their something-th birthday (maybe 12th?) Luckily since I don't plan to have kids, I don't have to remember the age. Love my ring, though!

6. Worst present?
All the ones I'm still waiting on. Aside from my mom and now my boyfriend, just about no one gets me presents (even though everyone promises me they're coming soon)

7. Ever have a surprise party?
I was about to say no, but I have! My friend in high school asked me over to hang out and when I got there, she had brought over a few of our closest friends for a little party. She even put a candle in a hunk of cookie dough for me (because I don't like cake)

8. If you woke up tomorrow and SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)

Alice in Wonderland (as in the books, not the new Tim Burton one) I really just want one of those lopsided gravity-defying cakes (even if I won't eat it, I want one) I did have an AiW themed party before, but I want another one. Bigger and better this time!

Juani said...

1. When is your birthday?

February 22,1983

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?

I'm a Pisces.We are supposed to be very loving and devoted,to friends/family/significant others.Also,we are supposed to be extremely flighty,disorganised and jealous.

And yes,I do think the descriptions for Pisces fit me very well.

3. Fondest birthday memory?

Getting a beautiful handmade card from my Mom.

4. Worst birthday?

The first one after my Dad died.

5. Best present ever?

A weekend by the sea,all expenses paid.

6. Worst present?

A big fat nothing from my boyfriend,lol

7. Ever have a surprise party?

Yes,I think I was 20.It was a very small party,but lots of fun.

8. If you woke up tomorrow and SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)

Sounds clich├ęd,but I would love a Halloween-themed party.I live in South Africa,where Halloween isn't nearly as popular as in America,so I would love a big costume party.

DaniellaBella said...

No time to do a fun quiz today! But I wanted to say HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a fellow Libra (Mine's on the 14th). Your 6 coincidences are crazy! Too many! Too awesome!

Shopping at Fluevog in Vancouver on my 40th birthday.

Hallowe'en party!

D'Rae said...

In case I forget tomorrow, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
My mom's birthday is today!

1. When is your birthday?
Halloween!

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Scorpio. Not sure about it. I would be interested in finding out though.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
My 30th birthday. Hubs gave me a sterling silver ring from Tiffany's. I adored that ring. Unluckily, someone stole it at the gym last year and I've not found it. Also, Tiffany's doesn't sell that style anymore either.

4. Worst birthday?
I don't think I've ever had a bad birthday

5. Best present ever?
See answer to number 3

6. Worst present?
There are no bad presents! LOL. Wait. telling me you sent a card and then never getting it, that is the worst. Hubs parents are notorious for that. Just tell me to have a great birthday and be done. I don't mind not getting anything, but don't tell me you sent something when you didn't.


7. Ever have a surprise party?
Nope

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
Costume party of course!!!!!

Chelsea said...

1. When is your birthday?
May 30th

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Gemini, and I know it's the twin sign and I'm supposed to be half awesome half terrible or something. But usually I'm just a really nice person. Lately getting in touch with my bitch side to keep assholes from walking all over me, so maybe my true gemini spirit is coming out? Also I always thought it was weird/cool that I'm the twin sign and my mom is an identical twin.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
Hmmm... gosh I'm not sure! Honestly it sounds so lame, but the week after my sweet 16 party another person in my class had a birthday party on my actual birthday. It was so much fun, especially because I spent like two hours talking intimately with the guy I was so in crush with AND I wasn't stressed out because all attention wasn't on me.

4. Worst birthday?
I got nothing. I'm sure there was a bad one somewhere, but it must have been repressed.

5. Best present ever?
Nic gave me one of my favorite pieces of jewelry on my first birthday we were together. She was outta town but made up for it with the gift.

6. Worst present?
I got nothing.

7. Ever have a surprise party?
Yes! My friends in middle school suprised me with a party for my 14th birthday I think? It was so magical and made me feel amazing. Awww...

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
Karaoke costume party, done!

Cara said...

I've missed your quizzes!

1. When is your birthday?
Jan 6, 1984
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
I'm Capricorn. If I see a paper lying around, I'll check my horoscope, but I prefer to mock them more. Or read them a day late to see if they were right.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
One year, I had 3 birthday parties because I was a social "floater" and I didn't want my world's to collide, so I threw 3 separate, but successful parties for myself.

4. Worst birthday?
Two years ago - I'd just driven back to school after Christmas, and was so homesick.

5. Best present ever?
Scott will buy me about 75% of his budget for me, and then I get to use the last 25% randomly over the next couple months whenever I see something and decide right then and there I want it, regardless of how ridiculous it is!

6. Worst present?
A stick of RAM for my computer. I wish I was joking.

7. Ever have a surprise party?
Well, yes. But they told me about it, so that sucked. And only 3 people were there. And it was also on New Years Eve in 1999/2000, so we were all worried about Y2K

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
For my 25th birthday, I had a 5-squared birthday, meaning we had my little pony cake, pin the tail on the donkey. Right now, I want 70s.

Happy birthday!

Em said...

I totally love that you're soliciting comments to make it an even, pretty number. XD


1. When is your birthday?
January 23, 1985. 1-2-3, so easy to remember, and my ex still forgot. *shakes head*

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Aquarius. I feel like I do have some Aquarian leanings; I'm pretty eccentric, and have a habit of seeming aloof. But I think I'm more emotionally connected to people and too respectful of authority to be a true-blue water bearer.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
My 26th birthday party was Ke$ha-themed. I wore a neon leopard-print tank, turquoise Daisy Dukes, silver leggings, black fishnet thigh-highs, hooker boots, and more neon face makeup than is healthy. Oh, and a UV-reactant tiara. Win.

4. Worst birthday?
On my actual 26th birthday (party was a different night), I had to work all day, and went over to my boyfriend's house to find him completely drunk with a female friend in his bed. They were both fully-clothed, and I don't think anything happened, but I wasn't pleased.

5. Best present ever?
I got Kitchen Littles for Christmas one year. I still have them.

6. Worst present?
Collectible Barbies at age 17 when you haven't collected them in years. I appreciated it, but you'd think it'd be obvious when all of my old Barbies were shoved up in my closet...

7. Ever have a surprise party?
Nope.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be?
We actually picked out my birthday party theme last night for this coming year. Highway Unicorn, inspired by the Lady Gaga song of the same name. Glitter, rainbows, and leather biker gear. Done.

Megan Mae said...

Woo! What a great lot of comments. My favorite number is 3, but it's usually due to more subtle things. I think it's pretty cool you have such a strong force in your life.

1. When is your birthday?
January 17th, 1990

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?

I'm a Capricorn as an astrological sign. I think it's usually a pretty close bet. I learned some about it, but like all things there's some that applies, some that doesn't.

I spent years assuming I fell under the Chinese zodiac sign of the Horse, but due to Chinese New Year, I actually fall under the year of the Earth Snake. I actually identified a lot stronger with that.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
My 21st birthday, we (me, the hubs, my brother and 3 friends) were waiting for the last member of our group to show up. It was just really cool sitting around and being with my group of friends again. And birthday cake shot(1/2 Kahlua, 1/2 something else, sugar) breathe in and it tastes like cake. I had one and was ridiculous.

4. Worst birthday?
My 16th. None of my friends could come, my then-boyfriend had stayed over at friends and thus slept through the bday. My family were jerks. I pretty much sat and watched tv all day.

5. Best present ever?
All the shoes I get? Or if we're talking actual gifts, my Nook. It's become something I use everyday, along with my cell phone.

6. Worst present?
Right after I moved out, got married, etc... My aunt (who I'm not on great terms with) decided to gift me a very odd, very large stained-glass "window" thing with a snowman motif for our "new place" (that we still don't have). I was flabbergasted and wound up giving it back to her. I just did not know how to react because it was so bizarre.

7. Ever have a surprise party?
Nope. I'm a planner, and my friends/family aren't. I think it'd be cool, but I consider it a miracle if I can get almost everyone together all at once.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)

I'd be happy just to be somewhere where everyone could fit, some music, and lots of good food. I like things relatively low-key. I like to be able to talk to people. Although, a costume party would be incredible. I've always wanted to do a halloween party, but my birthday is in January, and everyone's off at school during this time of year.

Bri said...

1. When is your birthday? - December 30
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? - I'm a Capricorn and I think it fits me pretty well. We're usually strong-willed and well-organized. Financially savvy.
3. Fondest birthday memory? - My husband threw me a surprise birthday party at Black Angus on my 30th birthday.
4. Worst birthday? On my 13th birthday my cousin, her friend, and I got dropped off at the YMCA while my mom and aunt went shopping. Cousin and ger friend refused to hang out with me and went to the weight room where I was too young to get in. I spent the morning swimming alone and stubbed my toe horribly on the locker room door, bleeding all over.
5. Best present ever? - ear piercing
6. Worst present? - I think I've blocked the bad ones.
7. Ever have a surprise party?
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? doctor who or buffy theme with people in costume

Andrea said...

1. November 30th
2. I'm a sagittarius, don't know much about astrology but my hairstylist does and she always says I am a classic sag. Go figure.
3. Fondest birthday memory? Hmm, probably getting a ton of trolls when I was like 7 or 8?
4. Worst birthday? Being away from all of my family while we lived in CA, it was lonely :(
5. Best present ever? My husband got me a car when we were first married... that was pretty sweet :)
6. Worst present? My MIL gave me a check to pay for my sons preschool tuition. Very nice, but it wasn't really for me if you KWIM? Like just say "instead of a present we're paying for this" not acting like it was a gift. She is very extravagent for everyone elses birthdays so it just kinda offended me.
7. Ever have a surprise party? Yep, my BFF threw me one for my 16th!
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
A winery tour in a limo so me and my gals could just drive around and get tipsy!

jj said...

I'll help get to the 122!

1. My birthday is July 5th. I was born at 12:32am on the 5th. I was 32 minutes late. My Dad said I was the firecracker that fizzled.
2. My sign is Cancer and I am 100% a Cancer. Taking care of others first, emotional and homey, that's me.
3. All birthdays are special. My fondest birthday memory isn't even mine, it was a birthday party for a guy I liked. It was the first time I met his parents, and we're still together, 7 years later.
4. My 21st. Spent at a family reunion in Arkansas. Most of my birthdays were spent at family reunions.
5. My iPod. My parents know how much music means to me, and it meant a lot that they gave me something that would make me happy.
6. Gift cards. I know they are practical and easy, but I want a little thought put into what you are giving me.
7. No surprise parties. I would get scared, wet myself, cry, then feel a fool. Everyone knows no surprise parties for Joy.
8. The party from Breakfast at Tiffany's, the one she has at her house and the cops come and break it up. That would be a great party.

Yay! I love quiz time, and happy birthday!

1. When is your birthday? July 14 - also Bastille Day (French Independence Day).

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? My sign is cancer, the crab. I don't know a lot about it but I remember stubborn being one of the characteristics. That I definitely am. I also recall something about being a homebody, which I certainly am not.

3. Fondest birthday memory? Probably my 18th birthday, my mom and friends all plotted together to throw me a surprise party.

4. Worst birthday? I can't recall any really bad birthdays. Maybe one of my teen birthdays where I couldn't have many friends over because everyone was away.

5. Best present ever? Engagement ring. It actually wasn't on my birthday. Andy wanted to propose to me on my birthday, but then I threw myself a birthday party and he couldn't. So he did it two days after. I wondered why he didn't get me anything for my birthday on that day though.

6. Worst present? Teacher related stuff. Also once my mom got me this organizational thing and told me to go clean my room.

7. Ever have a surprise party? Yes, for my 18th birthday. It was actually a surprise too.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun) Mad Men. Mostly because I just want to dress up like Joan.

January 6

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
I am a Capricorn (under the old system, not sure about the new one). I am very capricorn, stubborn, rule oriented, smart.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
Dad sending me flowers at high school when I was 16 - 16 longstemmed roses. It was a big splurge.

Nope.

How about an island theme? Even better, everybody flies to the Carribean and parties for the weekend. That'd be sweet. And huge amounts of red swedish fish and homemade salted caramel with pretzels. And my mom's sweet potato pie.

Happy birthday!

HollyElise said...

1. When is your birthday? August 12!
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? I'm a Leo, and what I know about Leos is not that much - we like to be the center of attention, we're fiercely loyal, and as far as that goes I'd say yeah, I'm like that *haha*
3. Fondest birthday memory? All my birthdays growing up were pretty great, but the first birthday I spent as a married woman, when my husband took me out to dinner and gave me a charm bracelet, was pretty awesome.

whenlifehandsyouapear said...

1. When is your birthday? November 2

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? I'm a Scorpio. I had to look it up to refresh my memory. Scorpios are supposed to be pretty emotional, determined, compulsive, and obstinate. That sounds about right.

3. Fondest birthday memory? Honestly, I can't really think of anything right now. Birthdays have never been a huge deal to me, probably because of how I was raised.

4. Worst birthday? Ugh, I can't even go there. I will say though, that as a child I was always disappointed that my mother wouldn't let me take a treat for the class on my birthday because she said it was too close to Halloween.

5. Best present ever? I usually pick out my own gifts because I feel like if money is going to be spent on me, I want to really like it.

6. Worst present? Nothing comes to mind.

7. Ever have a surprise party? Sort of, but I've known about it ahead of time.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? Honestly, I'm just happy going out to dinner and a movie with a group of friends.

I hope your birthday is amazing, Hillary! :)

Catherine said...

1. When is your birthday? January 5
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? Not interested in my sign, I'm afraid.
3. Fondest birthday memory?
4. Worst birthday? Two days before I got married! It was an emotional and stressful day, even though the lead-up was not pressured that day just felt too much. There was the wedding rehearsal, and moving house and my birthday got squashed out.
5. Best present ever? Hard to choose, but the year my Dad took me to see King Lear in Stratford on Avon was pretty cool.
6. Worst present? Can't say I've had a worst present. None that I recall.
7. Ever have a surprise party? My 30th was a surprise fancy dress party with everyone coming as something starting with the first letter of my name. I was very surprised! My husband had even contrived a costume for me that he'd snuck with us.
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun) I've always thought a croquet party with afternoon tea would be fun.

Happy Birthday Hillary!

I am a Gemini, altho' I think I am a Taurus on the new calendar. I am totally a Gemini, but I struggle to see myself as a Taurus

Birthday dinners of unlimited crunchy tacos and malts and corn on the cob. We never had an overabundance of food when I was a kid, and this was really special.

"Let's Ride". Someone smuggles my girlfriend Roxie up here, and a group gathers to ride down to the beautiful Arkansas mountains. I can't imagine anything better than having Jamie behind me as we cut curves on Roxie in the gorgeous autumn colors.

Dave said...

I forgot! Happy birthday!

Sharon Gaye said...

1. When is your birthday?

18th July (1970)

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?

Cancer. Yes I think I am. I am emotional and have a caring nature. Plus I'm a homebody.

3. Fondest birthday memory?

I really liked my 18th Birthday. Everything about it was fun.

4. Worst birthday?

Can't remember what age it was but was flying to America on my Birthday and once we arrived my boyfriend was too tired to celebrate so I ate in the hotel restaurant alone.
He was a pretty lame boyfriend because another bad one was when we were living in another city from my family and he rang my Mum and told her he was bringing me home to take to the best restaurant in town and she thought he was being funny and meant he was bringing me home to have dinner with the family so she cooked me dinner but he actually did take me out to a restaurant. Then he held it over my head that I owed him for the effort he'd put in.

5. Best present ever?

My Mum & Dad bought me a
beautiful watch pendant when I was about 16 that I loved.

6. Worst present?

None that come to mind.

7. Ever have a surprise party?

Yes my workmates planned a surprise lunch for my 21st but someone told me just before we left. It was so disappointing because up til then I had no idea and the suprise would have been awesome. My 40th had a suprise theme which was Shawaii 40 (my name is Sharon) I love Hawaii so it was a great theme. My favourite food is cake and they had a novelty cake competition and eveyone brougt an entry so lots and lots of cake.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun).

I'd like an 80's themed Birthday because I like the music.

Lynn W said...

July 21
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Cancer, almost a Leo. I am very much a Cancer. Emotional, homebody, loyal, dependable
3. Fondest birthday memory?
None really stand out.
4. Worst birthday?
This past one. My 18 year old son called 3 minutes into it saying he'd run off the road. We got out there and it turned out it was also down a 10 foot ravine and 30-40 feet into the woods, right between two huge trees. Five feet either direction and I probably wouldn't have a son anymore. Car was totaled, he was fine, thank God. But so scary!
5. Best present ever?
None really stand out.
6. Worst present?
None really stand out.
7. Ever have a surprise party?
Just my baby shower.

Lorena said...

Here's another comment just because I really like you :)

Lonestarcasie said...

oooo...you are sneaky. You know I can't resist a quiz.


1. When is your birthday?
January 18

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
I am a capricorn. I know they are supposed to be bossy. I am that for shiz. Or at least I want to be.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
uhhhhhh....I had a McDonald's birthday party once and one of my friends gave me a lunch box shaped like a McDonald's restaurant. Like the actual whole restaurant. The roof opened to get inside.

4. Worst birthday?
Probably after I had my second child because I am pretty sure I was just laying on the couch crying because I wanted to take a bath.

5. Best present ever?
See below...he finally proposed the next Christmas which was sort of the bithday/christmas/lifetime gift

6. Worst present?
Mostly i don't think of birthday worst present, but there was the Christmas when I thought my husband was going to propose and instead he got me a serger.

7. Ever have a surprise party?
Yes. And when I got there, I couldn't figure out why I was having a party. I had just gotten married and it was before my birthday so I was all like, we already had a shower, what is this for? Did I do something good that I don't remember. It was very odd.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
I would like a Cinco de Mayo party for my birthday because that is kind of my favorite holiday and any day that gives me a good reason to drink margaritas and eat tacos is a day of AWESOMENESS!

Unknown said...

1. When is your birthday? Nov. 1
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? Scorpio, I know a lot about it, it fits me about 95%!! I have a Scorpio tattoo and my brother (also a Scorpio) has a matching one ; )
3. Fondest birthday memory? Either my 16th (just because it was sweet, no huge party) or my 23rd, my first birthday celebrated with my husband when we were dating.
4. Worst birthday? 18, big fight with my mom that day.
5. Best present ever? Diamond solitaire necklace from my husband and two little boys.
6. Worst present? I love books but my sister sent me three used books and I had already read two of them.
7. Ever have a surprise party? nope
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun) An 80's party would be a blast, I was a teen in the 90's but I identify with the 80's when my sister was a teen and shared a bedroom with her! Plus, I have a lot of friends that are just looking for an excuse to dress up!

Happy Birthday!!

B. said...

1. When is your birthday?

September 2nd

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?

I'm a Virgo, and it is SO true. I'm anal about organization and symetry, and I'm a very good communicator. I was supposed to be Leo, and I have a little bit of that too, especially in evening traffic, haha!

3. Fondest birthday memory?

My mom invited her friends from work to my 12th birthday, and ones of the ladies was Italian and made me the most delicious cake I have ever had as a surprise because knew I had a hard time that year (I grew like 5 inches and stuck out like a sore thumb) and it was awesome. It really was unexpected and really kind.

4. Worst birthday?

13th. No one showed up and my mom had booked half of a restaurant for the party. Can't win them all.

5. Best present ever?

Steve Madden leopard print peeptoe heels!! My mom surprised me with them on my 26th birthday. It was a total squee moment.

6. Worst present?

My mom decided she wasn't going to talk to me on my 25th birthday. She refused to say Happy Birthday, and my dad had to do everything.


7. Ever have a surprise party?

No, but I would love to have one. I think with getting married soon, the chances for a surprise party are increasing.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be?

Hello Kitty Birthday party! Hello Kitty cake, decorations and gifts. I would want the red themed Hello Kitty decorations too. :D

B. said...

Also.....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Andrea said...

I'm not sure if I've ever posted on your blog before, but I really enjoy it. I love your sense of style!

1. When is your birthday?

October 2

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?

Libra ... I don't recall all the characteristics. I remember it did sorta sound like me, but I suspect that might be true for lots of 'em ....

3. Fondest birthday memory?

My husband always makes my birthday special in lots of little ways -- he buys the stuff I'm pining for, but also throws in some sweet surprises. I especially love it when he makes me "love coupon" type things, and illustrates them with his charmingly bad drawings. He doesn't really like drawing -- he does it just for me.

4. Worst birthday?

The birthday my husband pretty much slept through because he'd pulled an all-nighter the night before finishing a paper for grad school. I just waited all day for him to get up. Really not so bad compared to what other folks have had happen!

5. Best present ever?

My sewing machine -- my 36th birthday present! I had been looking for one in the $300 range and my husband bought me one that was twice as nice!

6. Worst present?

One year my sister gave me a pack of paper napkins. Huh?

7. Ever have a surprise party?

Nope!

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)

I love toy camera photography, and it would be awesome if all my friends would go out and shoot double -exposures with me!

Buffalo Girl said...

so here we go getting you to that +magic* number!

1. January 6
2. Capricorn and yes so much like it
3. The older I get the better they get but as an only child I had some awesome birthday parties
4. so many of them because there would a snow storm, I'd be sick or my family would be sick
5. Barbie Dream house - this could have been a Christmas gift since my birthday is 2 weeks to the day after Christmas sometimes the gifts run together as the years go on.
6. Crazy stuff my parents think I want but I never do.
7. Thankfully no
8. If I have to have stinking party for my birthday then I want it to be a crazy tropical themed one held at indoor water park - tomorrow will be chilly here!

Jac said...

1. When is your birthday? 2-14, Valentine's Day!
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? I am Aquarius, the water bearer and know nothing further about it.
3. Fondest birthday memory? My 21st birthday is my favorite b/c I remember feeling very loved.
4. Worst birthday? One of the ones in my teens, when I pined for a boyfriend and having your birthday on a day dedicated to love seemed like a cruel joke. Yes, I am melodramatic. :-)
5. Best present ever? On my 30th, my husband gave me a custom made right hand ring. Love it!
6. Worst present? I have been given heart socks, suspenders, sheets, bed spreads, underwear, pillow cases, t-shirts, umbrellas, etc, etc, etc. I now officially hate hearts.
7. Ever have a surprise party? Nope and no thanks
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? I would prefer a spa day with a small group of close girlfriends. We could get manis, pedis, and facials and I would be a happy, relaxed girl.

Hope you have a happy birthday and hit your '6' goal!

Becky said...

Happy (early) Birthday! Sorry, no time for a quiz. Good luck getting comments today.

Patricia said...

1. When is your birthday?
Christmas Eve

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Capricorn! I totally fit just about every Cappy description I have ever read.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
I remember the time my mom showed up in my kindergarten class with a Cabbage Patch Kids Birthday Cake for my birthday. It may have been something like 2 weeks before my actual birthday, but it was still awesome.

I also really enjoy the way my bf now tries to make my birthday special.


4. Worst birthday?
I have a pet peeve about people combining birthday and Christmas presents, so anytime that someone special to me (who I thought knew better) did that kind of bummed me out. The other thing is, that on Christmas Eve, not much is open. I'm lucky if the restaurant of my choice is open at all (usually just for lunch), and by evening time, the movie theater is the only thing open.

5. Best present ever?
Not sure, if it was the best ever, but for some reason, receiving Jewel Secrets Whitney when I was a kid was really memorable. (They gave me Jewel Secrets Barbie the next day for Christmas)

6. Worst present?
An ex-boyfriend gave me the Antiques Roadshow game. I enjoy the show, but don't need a board game for it.

7. Ever have a surprise party?
Yes! When I turned 18, my friend threw me a surprise roller skating birthday party.

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be?

I would like the party to be in France. There, I would eat mussels and French Bread...and cheese. Then I'd have a crepe to finish it off. Perhaps, I could walk around a museum and no one would care that it was Christmas Eve, so everything would have normal hours and no Christmas decorations.

OR! I would be in Hawaii and get to swim on my birthday. That is one of my goals, I really want to swim on my birthday. (Guess I have a complex about having a winter birthday)

Patricia said...

PS, Hope you have a great birthday!

laniza said...

Happy birthday, Hillary :)!

1. When is your birthday?
--January 3rd

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
--I'm a Capricorn, and I know a lot about it (I'm a horoscope nut)! Capricorns are known for having high standards & are often moody.

3. Fondest birthday memory?
--Having a shared birthday party with my cousin (b. Jan 1st--I think we were around 8 or 9 years old). We had a sleepover at our grandma's house and watched Pound Puppies all night. It was awesome!

4. Worst birthday?
--Winter break ending on my birthday (which basically happened the majority of my school years)...

5. Best present ever?
--Receiving The Sims 2 when it first came out. It blew my mind!!

6. Worst present?
--Any present that counted for both Christmas & my birthday (that's the downside of having a birthday so soon after the holidays).

7. Ever have a surprise party?
--Not yet!

8. If you woke up tomorrow and SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
--I would love to have either an 80s hip hop theme or 80s/90s King of Pop theme.

Stefka said...

1. When is your birthday?
April 13. (My lucky number is 13 and my favorite years are when my birthday falls on a Friday - it's often Good Friday, which just for the name alone feels extra lucky/special!)
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Aries - not a typical one (I'm more introverted), but when I've had my birth chart done, it really makes sense with the other signs that influence as well...(Cancer, Virgo). And the majority of my boyfriends have coincidentally been Leos, which is supposedly a good match for an Aries.
3. Fondest birthday memory?
Two years ago one of my friends threw me a surprise party, and invited different circles of my really close friends (college, work, etc.) - so fun and surreal (in a good way) to have them all in the same room, hanging out with each other.
4. Worst birthday?
My first year in college, when nobody remembered it was my birthday...I was always embarrassed to draw attention to myself, but that experience is what made me realize that there's no shame in simply announcing that your birthday is coming up, and to keep reminding people. :-)
5. Best present ever? Ummmm...can't think of one. (I have a terrible memory - I'll probably come up with the perfect answer next week!)
6. Worst present? I can't think of a worst present, but for some reason people keep making me carrot cakes (we're talking 25 years this has been happening!) and I have to pretend to be excited...I know I'm a nature girl, but birthdays should be all about CHOCOLATE.
7. Ever have a surprise party? Just the one mentioned above.
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun) Cirque du Soleil! Pirate ship! Masquerade ball! Any of those sound fun...

Michelle said...

First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Hillary! ♥

Ok, QUIZ TIME:

1. When is your birthday? March 9

2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? Pisces; I'm not that into it but I AM a total water/ocean/blue lover so there's that.

3. Fondest birthday memory? In college my boyfriend (now husband) threw me a surprise party at the local crappy/dive Mexican place and it was so SO fun!

4. Worst birthday? Luckily I can't think of one. Oh, I know! The year my parents gave me their credit card and told me to go buy all my own gifts. That surprisingly sucked.

5. Best present ever? Hmmm. Unsure. Maybe my car on my 16th?

6. Worst present? I'm pretty lucky - no bad ones that I can think of.

7. Ever have a surprise party? Yep - see #3

8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun) I never had a pretty princess party when I was little so that would be my top choice. I'd have it be all out over the top girly, pink, sparkly fondant encrusted feminine goodness. It would be amazing. ♥

Karlee said...

1. When is your birthday?
August 6

Leo and of what I know I don't think I'm too much like it. Definitely not extroverted and I don't think I'm too spontaneously creative.

1. When is your birthday?
December 14th
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it?
Sagittarius; yes, I know quite a lot about it and..hmmm, I'm pretty Sag-y. But I also remind myself of my Moon sign, which is Virgo, and my Rising Sign, which is Capricorn.
3. Fondest birthday memory?
I threw myself a big party in 2001, and amazingly, a lot of people I really love came and had a great time. That was very special, especially 'cuz my parents were very reclusive and not into or good at giving parties (see below lol)...honestly, I've never had many fun birthdays. They weren't bad but just a bit lackluster. Oddly, I can't even recall a lot of them.
4. Worst birthday?
My poor shy, socially inept Mother tried to throw me a party and screwed up the invites somehow. Maybe she sent them too early and people forgot? I think that was it. At any rate, like 3 people showed up to my party. This might be the origin of my party phobia... The good part of it was, the girls who did come were super sweet about it and we all had fun in the end anyway. More cake for each of us, too. ;-)
5. Best present ever?
Probably, cumulatively, all the wonderful, magical books my grandmother sent me when I was a girl for every birthday. I loved reading and we were very poor. She was quite well-to-do and sent the most lovely illustrated hardcovers. My husband repeated the feat year before last when he gave me an incredibly rare, pricey first edition of a little-known occult novel from the 30s ("The Sea Priestess", by Dion Fortune) which happens to be one of my favorite books ever.
6. Worst present?
Happily, I cannot recall! Probably something boring when I was a kid, like ugly bedroom slippers lol!
7. Ever have a surprise party?
No. I wish. That might be very cool.
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun)
Right off the top of my head, either Halloween themed or maybe The Wizard of Oz!

IrishRedRose said...

Michele said...

not really sure, i have a bad memory.
4. Worst birthday?

clothes that don't fit. (and the person didn't make an effort to find out my size, just picked out whatever)

Cyn said...

Oh, a happy belated birthday to you! I hope it was wonderful!

LETS DO A QUIZ!
Okay! :)

1. When is your birthday? December 24th
2. What is your sign? Do you know anything about it? Think you are like it? I'm a Capricorn. My Mom is huge into astrology, so I know my rising sign in Aquarius. Between the two of them, it pretty much makes up my personality- I'm the sort of loves antiques and vintage clothing and tinkering with computers and sci-fi.
3. Fondest birthday memory? A toss-up between scoring a Barbie Corvette (for Day to Night Barbie and Ken to drive- so 80's boss!) and a McDonald's birthday party when I was 6.
4. Worst birthday? Sigh. Dad's side always gets together for Christmas on the 24th. I had to drive him because he got too drunk and grouchy. He ended up leaving beer cans (full and empty) in my car, leaving me with a stinky car. I was under 21 at the time and terrified I'd get pulled over when I finally realized what it was.
5. Best present ever? Every year I get some of my aunt's peanut butter fudge. It's so awesome.
6. Worst present? My birthday so the day before Christmas, so I'd have to say that one gift that counts for two. It burns when you're a little kid.
7. Ever have a surprise party? No- everyone is too busy with Christmas. It gets pushed aside.
8. If you woke up tomorrow an SURPRISE it is your birthday and someone threw you a party what theme would you like it to be? (Could be over the top, childish, anything. This is supposed to be fun) A big, boozy Rat-Pack party with martinis and big band music or something 80's themed and silly.
