Ode to Robin!

So I started to think about how long I have known Robin, it feels like I have known her my whole life but it has been only 8 years. Even saying that is kind of funny because 8 years is the second longest relationship I have ever had!  So I thought in Honor of Robins Up coming 30th Birthday on the 19th of February I figured that I could tell you 30 (some crazy) things that I love about being friends with her … 

1. She makes me feel like a Teenager again! (I almost signed up for a new subscription with Tiger Beat) 
2. She cries at the funniest songs! Escape (Pina Colada song), 1985 (she always wanted to shake her ass on the hood of White Snakes car.) 
3. She has agreed to come help me Stalk David Tennant when we go to London… (Well we will have to do some stalking of Kevin Spacey too…but I am ok with that.) 
4. She has vowed to share Ewan McGregor… When we do meet him. 
5. She tolerates me when I am totally grumpy and bitchy …
6. She has let me see the wonder twins and I think that one of these times when I can get her drunk enough she may let me touch them! (Eat your heart out Boys!) 

7. She loves and brags about all of my Wild military stories… She also asks me to tell the stories when we are at parties… Hey! Wait… I am not sure that that is a good thing… I think that she may be taking advantage of me. (not in the good way either!) 
8. She loves me even though I am obsessed with Harry Potter. 
9. She always allows me to hold her hair when she gets sick. She does this while telling me how I will make a great mother some day…(not sure how that works. I can’t stand to see my nephew puke so…?) 
10. She has successfully changed my view from hunky stud muffin crushes of guys like Christian Bale and Julian McMahon to John Krasinski and David Tennant. (The underdog and the Nerdy stud muffins!) 
11. She and I are apart of the Clan of the Cave dorks! I am Dork # 1 and she is Dork # 2. 
12. She agrees with me that Nice Boys “do” Kiss like that! But doesn’t “Fancy” a Shag… LOL 
13. She loves my Guacamole! (She says that she does any way!) But it really is her Milkshake that brings all the boys to the yard… 
14. She completely understands why I don’t want kids and totally accepts this about me…(It is nice to have someone that understands) 
15. She has taught me everything I know about the Internet… (No really she has…) 
16. At our first job together we really didn’t work much she showed me AIM. We worked in the same building but talked on IM all day… lol maybe that is why we both got laid off…? 
17. She has seen me completely naked although she may not remember it seeing as she was running around my house screaming… She said that it was a night Terror but… Wait was she running screaming from me? 
18. When we drove to OK together we talked to cows in a big cow truck when we were stuck in traffic in AR. How you Moo’in? 
19. She and I giggle like little girls when we talk about the Actors that we think that are hot. 
20. She really does talk to her furkids… lol I love that… (Well don’t we all? Avi I saw you talk to Jigsaw…so don’t laugh!) 
21. She drives like a Crazy lady in Boston!! It is a little Scary… But not as Scary as her mothers driving in the City!!!! 
22. Snarf… That is all I am going to say about that!  
23. What you all don’t know about her is that she is not only the Muse that you all read each day but she is an international Spy… (No really… where do you think that she learned how to touch her tongue to her nose… They teach them that kind of stuff there you should see what else she can do.)  
24. She loves her Furkids so much that she still tries to pick Aurora up even though she scratched one of the nipples on the Wonder twins! (I love my cat but I so would never pick him up again if he scratched the melons! He would get a life long ban from being around them at all) 
25. She set up October road to tape on my DVR when I didn’t know it so that I would not ask her questions when we would catch the show together… What friend would do that for you! LOL 
26. The first time she took me to the local bar that all of her friends went to I was welcomed right into her group. Her friend the Fly (the nickname is a totally different story) grabbed my boobs announced to the whole Bar that I had nice Boobies and that I could be apart of their gang. Then she put her face in them.  
27. Even thought she hates Christmas she has come to my Family Christmas Day get together since I have known her… even before she got together with Erik (And they still ask us every year what day the party will be on! I love that!) 
28. She hates sports… but she doesn’t make fun of me for being obsessed with Baseball, well the Red Sox actually. 
29. With in the first year that I knew her she made me watch and sucked me into several shows that she watched that I hadn’t until that time. Not only did she suck me into them and I liked them… She got me to cheer on the underdog couples with her! Noel and Felicity, Ross and Rachel, Dawson and Joey. She still does it today! DAMN HER! 
30. Last but not least… Having your best friend becoming your sister is the coolest thing in the world.  

So that is my Ode to Robin and all of the things that I love about her for her 30th birthday.   

Oh and just so it is on the Record for everyone to see…

You are now OLD!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I told you Payback is a Bitch!  

Although I know that this doesn’t change anything I know I am still older then you are… but you are now apart of the 30’s Club!

Welcome, grab a name tag at the door…

    Angel no crying! :hug: thanks though.. She is great…

    I am not sure what I would do with out her… She listens to all of my rantings about David Tennant and agrees that someday we will be the two old ladies that have a bunch of cats that still giggle like girls about all of the really hot younger guys on TV… :drool:

    She’s the closest I have to a sister and I always wanted a sister. I really lucked out with her, then Erik and even a super awesome brother too! She can drive me crazy, and I drive her crazy too, but that’s I think because we are so close and because we are family. I can’t imagine my life without her.

    Ok…back to my vacation. Sheesh!
