Thursday Thirteen #8



Thirteen Things It Would Be Nice to Have

1. Dual citizenship – maybe the US and Australia?
2. A photographic memory – I’d settle for a decent memory
3. Perfect pitch – I can’t carry a tune in a bucket
4. A sense of direction – I get hopelessly lost in the mall
5. An Oscar – not that I’m an actress, but wouldn’t it be cool to have one?
6. My own personal bathroom – that I didn’t have to share with anyone else
7. A small, live dragon
8. A chauffeur – preferably a hot one
9. An award winning garden
10. A winning lottery ticket - I had to put this in, come on
11. An ancient artifact – willed to me by a long lost relative
12. An invitation to dine with the Queen
13. Violet eyes – naturally violet like Elizabeth Taylor, no contacts

Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!


The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

A decent memory (especially for people's names) and a sense of direction WOULD be nice.

Don't know about the small dragon part... LOL!

Gina Ardito said...

Oooh! Can my bathroom have a jacuzzi and a shower stall with jets on both sides of the wall?

Great list!

Elle Fredrix said...

My own private tropical island. Sometimes I really need to get away from it all.

Jennifer Elbaum said...

Great list! Maybe the dragon could guard your private bathroom?

I'd like:

a: The ability to make small talk

b: The patience not to be bored by small talk

Rhonda Stapleton said...

Oooooh great list! I want a photographic memory, too.

And I put on someone else's list that I also want telekinesis. ROFL--I'm so lazy.

i have a dual citizenship: american and german - i also have 2 birth cerificates with 2 different last names. all because my parents weren't married when i was born. (they married three months later) the paperwork nightmare that follows me to this day is annoying. amen on the photographic memory.

Jennifer McK said...

A maid, baby. A maid.

imogen howson said...

Ooh, can I have a small dragon too?
And Jennifer Elbaum's wish, definitely!

Tempest Knight said...

I could sure use a photographic memory right now. Agh! I forgot a test.

Ciar Cullen said...

Oh! A small, live dragon. How cute! OMG, I'm going to obsess about that all day now. I always wanted a tiny elephant, you know, palm sized. It was a fantasy of mine as a kid LOL

Emma Sinclair said...

How about a pool boy - well, man really (and the pool to go along with him).

My hubby has dual citizenship - American and Austrailian. It's not as interesting as you might think.

Robin L. Rotham said...

I've got the perfect pitch -- I just don't have the voice that should accompany it. :P

I have a great sense of direction, but nowhere to go.

Forget the Oscar -- I want a Rita.

I WANT MY OWN BATHROOM, TOO! (No boys allowed...)

What in the hell would you do with a dragon, LOL! Do you have any idea what he'd do to your furniture?

Lesley said...

Oh, how I would love to have a dragon but I'd want one big enough to ride. ;) It would however be nice if he could shrink down to pocket size at will so I could carry him around with me everywhere.

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Ooh, I should have put pool boy on the list - and a maid, and a cook and a gardner too.

The dragon seemed like a good idea at the time, then my husband and I rented the complete [and only season] of Surface, where one of the main characters is a dragon like sea creature and he was nothing but trouble. Let me amend that to, a well-behaved, house trained, pocket-sized live dragon.

Crystal Jordan said...

I want a dragon!

Shelli Stevens said...

Ooooh I'd love U.K. and USA citizenship. Sigh. And that hot chauffer part. :D

Dayna_Hart said...

um. I'd like a body that would look good enough in a swimsuit to sit by your pool...even better would be if my body looks as good OUT Of the bathing suit so I could enjoy the bathtub...

Gwen Hayes said...

I want an unlimited travel account. I want to see EVERYWHERE!

Heather said...

Oooh...I wouldn't mind a few of those. Could I get my own personal masseur, too? I think I need one on permanent retainer. ;)

shelley said...

Um...what are you going to do with a small dragon?

Kissa Starling said...

I want a dragon too- one just like Puff the Magic Dragon. I love fantasy worlds!

Diana Castilleja said...

Um, yeah, right htere with ya... I have plain brown wrapping... hair.. eyes... I'd die for blue eyes, and I love Elizabeth Taylor's. Always have. I'd do violet.

The ticket? You betcha! LOL

God so many things... *sigh* Maybe I'll do that list next week. :)

Ember said...

Yikes, I'd settle for just not having to write it DOWN to expect to remember it.

Sparky Duck said...

oh no, a tiny dragon sounds creepy

Annalee Blysse said...

I wouldn't mind a dragon either. I finally did a Thursday Thirteen. Only I had to backdate two hours as it just turned Friday. Obsessive here. ;)
