Daily Hoop Conversation:
Hoop: You want some ice cream?
Tink: I need ice cream like I need a hole in the head.
Hoop: But you DO need the holes in your head. You already have five.
Tink: I have eight holes.
Hoop: Eight?
Tink: *Points to ears*
Hoop: -one, two.
Tink: *Points to eyes*
Hoop: Those aren't holes!
Tink: Yes they are. They're just filled holes.
Hoop: It can't be a hole if it's filled.
Tink: Yes it ca-
Hoop: -fine, whatever. You have eight holes in your head.
Tink: Ok, that just might have been the strangest conversation EVER.

Tink, can I be your best friend? That's the best 50 things list I've ever read.

(how'd you get an even number of holes?)

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger Chris said...

Wow, reading your list has me all over the place. I want to go kick that fucking rapist so hard that he balls turn black and fall off. I want to laugh at some. I want to get misty at others.

I think it's best if I just giggle at the surreal Hoop conversation and send you a *hug*.

Um, I'm addicted to Vanilla Un-Petroleum sticks...

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger Tink said...

Mignon: I'd be honored!

I only have one earring hole. The other sealed itself up. Technically I don't know if that counts. I don't see why not though since I don't see a f'n rule book for this whole "Holes in Head" thing.

Chris: S'OK girl. I imagine he'll get his in the end. Although I sincerely hope it's that his balls turn black and fall off.

Mmmm, Vanilla Un-Petroleum sticks. I'm addicted to Vanilla Soft Lips.

I really enjoyed reading that. :)

#19 confuses me. How can you be crude AND be prude? LOL

I totally agree w/ #38!!!

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger Arabella said...

Jumpin' Johosephat, Tink, I wanna hear another 50!

You continually impress me with having your shit together and being so articulate at such a young age.

And I want to beat the rapist with a baseball bat to his nuts.

Tink-sorry to hear about #11, I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

YOu are one cool woman, with four vibrators no less! You rock! ;-)

#40-me too!

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger mama_tulip said...

#1, 9 & 21 -- Me too!

#11 -- ((hugs))

#20 -- I wholeheartedly agree.

#32 -- I would have dumped his ass too! Cree-eepy.

#35 -- You are awesome. AWESOME.

#38 -- Damn right, girlfriend. ;)

1.Public restroom must be a bitch.

31.I'm with you on the chapstick.

Tink - Demi Moore wore a patch over her eye as a child. I would have dumped the guy that didn't blink both eyes. I mean, what is up with that. Basically, he is winking all the time. I love your 50.

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger Tink said...

EE: "How can you be crude AND be prude?" Exactly my point! I think I confuse people. They can't decide what to label me.

Arabella: ((Hug)) Why are you so sweet to me?

GB: It SOUNDS cool, but you can only ever use one. Well maybe two, but I'm not going there. ;)

Mama T: Since you agree on #1 answer me this... If there's someone else in the public bathroom do you wait until they're peeing or running water to go?

Gradual Gardener: I would love nothing more than to be the "B-List Logo Designer." Unfortunately, I'd have to learn how to do it first. Hehe

Shrinking V: I could never tell if he was winking as in blinking or winking as in "Hey there good looking." And since winks are contagious, I found myself doing it too. And that just wouldn't do!

Totally fascinating list. I have a lot of black pants, too. I'm a Carmex freak. Unfortunatly, I like yellow and orange.

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger Jay said...

I can't think of 50 interesting things about me. But, 50 is just a drop in the bucket for you. You could probably make a "1,000 interesting things about me" list and just be getting warmed up.

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger mama_tulip said...

Yes. I do both, and if they're like, in the next stall over pinching a loaf with no signs of leaving anytime soon, I have to close my eyes and really concentrate on peeing.

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger eric said...

i would think the earring hole doesn't count because, technically, it would have to be a hole that ultimately could lead to your brain.

at least that's my rule.

you're a very interesting person.

I'm with Mignon on this one. I loved that list - it was funny, and sad, and I want more!

I am absolutely loving your Hoop conversations.

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger Mrs. Harridan said...

Always interesting and funny to read your posts!

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger DebbieDoesLife said...

I want to hear that Betty Rubble laugh in person. Please email Arabella and tell her you are coming to Blogger B-List!!!!

At 15 February, 2006, Blogger Jess Riley said...

That was an interesting, wonderful, sad, and funny list. I'll definitely be back to your blog!

At 16 February, 2006, Blogger mE said...

Statistically, 1/3 of the women who read your blog can relate to #11. When you speak for yourself, you speak for them as well... and in doing so you *do*, to paraphrase someone dear, 'help them move on with their lives'.

Very cool. :)


At 16 February, 2006, Blogger Carrie said...

Tink, you are a very cool lady. I found myself thinking, "OMG, me too!" To half your list. Love it.

At 16 February, 2006, Blogger Mary said...

You never cease to suprise and amaze me Tink!

At 16 February, 2006, Blogger V said...

Heehee....50 more reasons to love Tink!
My eyes turn bright green when I have a migraine. It's a bitch....I look great when I feel like hell!

I think you are an amazing woman.

Also, you and I could totally share clothes. We are the same exact size. And if I recall your boobs are about the size of mine too. I could be your body double.
