In July 2006, I started this blog! The year sure flew. Party time! Cake is over there, drinks are on the table beside the buffet, balloons and party hats are by the door. You can leave your gifts there too. No strippers, sorry. But I won't stop you from doing a pole dance if you're so inclined. And then I'll gatecrash my American buddies' 4th of July celebrations.

Happy Bloggoversary!

I never heard of sweet & sour cream flavored french fries.

Cheers! And you are more than welcome to crash our Independence Day BBQ's!

Happy Birthday Blog! =)

Blowout ka naman, Liz! =)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

You've worn a tutu? I too would never wear a tutu again but then I never did...honestly.......I was tempted of course.
I think it would be worth you wearing one again, taking a picture with your digital camera and posting the result on your blog using the Macbook Pro that surely will be yours one day.
Your mojo is showing by the way!

Lizza said...

Travis: Thanks! It's really good; the next time I have some I'll take a pic and show you. :-) Happy 4th of July!

HB: Lika, libre kita ng isaw.

DaddyP: I was all of 7 or 8 the last time I wore a tutu. I then discovered I had 2 left feet. So I switched to wearing a grass skirt. It was much easier to just shake my buns. I think you'd look lovely in a frothy pink tutu though.

kyels said...

I love roasted peanuts with garlic too!


nursemyra said...

oh come now lizza. penfold would pay good money to see you get in and out of a school uniform

lizza said...

Kyels: Yep, goes well with beer. :-)

Nursemyra: He would??? The pervert. *but dashes off to find school uniform*

Sanni said...

Roasted peanuts with garlic??? Could you please upload some to "YouSendIt" ???

H said...

Happy blog birthday dear Lizza!

Many happy blog posts to you, for years and years to come, and a few fat book deals too...

fancy that! you bite your nails too??!! soul sis eh?!


penfold said...

At this stage in our relationship I don't think any money should change hands! Nursie - I object to your implications...
Happy blogiversary LL.

lizza said...

Sanni: Haha! I wish I could. I'll think of you the next time I have some.

H: Soul sisters indeed! Thanks, foxy one.

Penfold: Thank you! Well, okay. I'll settle for you in a school uniform too.

nursemyra said...

no sinister implications, penfold. I thought the lure of Lizza disrobing in a school uniform would be enough to make you buy a plane ticket to the phillipines :-)

Lizza said...

No, no, no, Nursemyra. We're going to Portugal. I'll bring a school uniform, which I'll take off before going swimming in Penfold's lagoon while you and he play house. Or doctor. Or whatever it is the two of you want to play. :-)

Matt-Man said...

Lizza: Wow we have exactly the same five bad habits, although I am improving on the finger nail front. Cheers!!

Photo Cache said...

sweet and sour cream french fries? you get those in fast food? would very much like to try some. fedex some asap. ty.

mist1 said...

Thanks for having cake today. I was just thinking about how good a piece of cake would be. Or, a vodka tonic. Either way.

Lizza said...

Matt: All I have to do is sprout some chest hair and we could be twins!

Photo: Oh, yes! Yummy stuff. Full of trans-fats, but delicious!

mist1: You're welcome. Next time we'll play Scrabble while eating cake and drinking a vodka tonic.

Tammie Jean said...

Well, the things I learn here... I've never heard of Beer Match Crackling, sweet & sour cream fries or the song "Beer" by Itchyworms (that sounds like a good one!) I like the things you'd do if you were a millionaire, and your 5 favorite toys ;)
Good answers!

Lizza said...

Haha, thanks Tammie Jean! Beer is a fun song, but it's in Tagalog. The singer is in a dilemma, he can't decide which he wants more: his beer or love. :-D

CS said...

Peanuts with garlic. Hmm. I don't know. Enjoyed your list - and, since I'm just catching up after having been away, I'll say here also the bloogworld Saturday list.
