Thursday's Thirteen #17

Image hosted by
Crusty's Thirteen Morsels

1. I am a dunce. In more ways than one, but right now I'm referring to blogrolling. 'Big wheels keep on turning, Proud Mary keeps on....' something.... I signed up for blogroll, but I am confused about how or what to do next. This could only mean one thing, that its easy. So now I have an account, but don't know what my next move is. I will return later and fiddle with things. Learning by trial and error can be frustrating. And sometimes dangerous, but always exhilarating.

2. I woke up this morning making a list in my head about what to include in this week's TT13 list. What is that telling me?

3. The thirteen "morsels" are suppose to be things that others don't know about me. What do we do when we've told all?

4. When I was in kindergarten I wet my pants. I was too polite and shy to interrupt the teacher while she was reading to ask for permission to go to the bathroom.

5. I didn't believe my 'then' partner thirty years ago when he told me Rock Hudson was gay. 'What are you talking about! He can't be gay...look at all those Doris Day movies!'

6. In case you are wondering, I've had gay friends and I have hired gay people to fill open positions... when I was employed. But I was not a Hudson fan. I didn't see what all the hoopla was about.

7. Doris Day and Rock Hudson movies aren't fun to watch any more. The last time I watched Pillow Talk I picked up on all the innuendoes. DUH... Geesh, am I ever naive. ("And our government and leaders would NEVER do anything like that!")

8. A review shows that all my teenage movie star crushes were homosexual. I've been had! And when I now think of my "crushes", its embarrassing to my good sense. What WAS I thinking!

9. I'm sitting here with two pairs of pants and two tops on.... its cold and windy. Windchill factor has it about 22 degrees. This is going to cut down on the number of cigerettes I have today.

10. I put a site counter on my blog. I wanted to know if anyone ever read it. There must be a couple of people cause the numbers change.

11. I wasn't able to get to all of the people on Leanne's TT13 list last week, but I did make a significant dent. Will try to keep up this week.

12. I've made a couple of blog "acquaintences' via Leanne's TT13. Of course, one stopped blogging all together. Go figure.....

13. I can't spell worth dittly squat. Diddly Squat. I can't spell worth squat. And just how much is a squat worth now days?

Check out Leanne's list of TT13 participants and watch it grow. I think it was over 40 last week.

Hey! I think it took me about a week to figure out that blogroll thing.... glad to see I'm not the only one who has problems with the 'simple' things.

Got my 13 up!

Leanne said...

You are not a dunce! Technologically challenged is the PC term I believe. hehe! You'll figure it out, you've come this far - I'm sure you'll get it! You're one of a handful of bloggers who actually doesn't just go look at all the pretty graphics, you read, and you absorb, and that makes you highly intelligent in my book.

I wake up EVERY morning thinking about my list!! Cripes!

#10 cracks me up. The numbers change! :P

Shelli said...

Number 10 sounds just like me. Then when the numbers went up and no one commented, I begged people in a post to come forward. They did. Thanks for coming by my blog. Heres the link to my 13...

Veronika said...

Were we separated at birth? I swear when I read this, I thought I was reading a TT I would write! The only thing different is that it's cold, but not THAT cold here. The blogrolling thing just organizes your list of blogs that you have listed. I had to read it about 7 times before I finally got it!
Thanks for visiting me:) and I'm going to add you to my blogroll, k?

Lisa said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

You're not a dunce - believe me, I am too.

LOL on the counter - I use a site meter and it's interesting to see who's come to the blog. From countries I've never heard of! I'm sure they're just hitting "next blog" in the corner.

Hi. Happy Thursday 13!

I will confess that I start thinking about the "Thursday 13" as early as Tuesday! LOL. Sometimes I'll start jotting down notes on Wednesday.

My 13 are up.

Dorothy said...

Hi Crone! Glad to meet you, and thanks for stopping by my blog.

My 13 is up at:

TC said...

I do my Thursday Thirteen on the spot as I type. I guess it makes it a little random but it is always an accurate peek into my scattered thoughts anyway.

Glad to meet you. Great list. I did my 13 today too, drop by and say hi!

Lazy Daisy said...

If you figure out the blogroll thingy let me know...I could sign up for totally inept classes.

My first 13 are up and I had difficulty doing that.

Love the title of your blog.

Stop by, maybe my counter will change! Kathy

Anonymous said...

haha, I'm a dunce too. I can't figure it out either.
I have bloglines, though

I did #4, also. :( but teacher had told me to "wait" when I asked her.
I think she forgot about me.

terrilynn said...

I've never even tried the whole blogroll thing; I'm much too lazy. Typepad makes it very easy to make my own, and that's what I do.

And I've yet to get through the whole list of 13ers but I'm going to try to do that today.

colleen said...

I think there are more of us than not. I had the same problem yesterday. Leanne had to walk me through the blogroll thing and now I don't understand what it does or what to do next.

I'm typing this in wool long johns! I did my 13 too.

PS I call our impairment having no tech-no-logic.
