"Daddy's little girl?" Boy, you are in a bad mood. Happy Thanksgiving anyway.

Apparently unthankfulness number 10 has been put to bed. Get it... put to bed.. huh, nudge nudge...to bed. Okay, sorry about the figurative kick in the stomach.

I can't resist sharing...

"7. People who make me take my shoes off in their house."

This one made me laugh - here in Finland one of the unwritten cultural rules is to take your shoes off when you visit someone else's house. Anyone who fails to do that is considered unpolite. Yes, shoes may be part of your outfit but still... Maybe we just don't mind feeling naked - after all sauna was invented in Finland :P. Years and years ago I was visiting some Irish friends in Dublin and I took my shoes off quite automatically. And I did get some really weird looks because of that.

Hmm, I find these everyday cultural differences quite interesting!

Interesting about the shoes. If you live in the city you won't be tracking dirt in but if you live in the country, like I did, you want your shoes off so you don't track dirt everywhere. We never wore our shoes in the house, NEVER! I still take my shoes off even though I am in town now and have cement sidewalks. I think the Japanese take their shoes off too. Could be wrong, though.

I wear shoes all the time IN MY OWN HOUSE. I feel naked without them (and everything else, of course).

And, yes, Maureen Dowd needs to go.

I'm with you bmmg39. I like to stay fully clothed unless absolutely necessary (although I will put on slippers in my own house.)

Hilarious! You had me sore from laughing over this post.

"Daddy's Little Girl"

My fiance calls me that, but my brothers always called me our dad's "favorite son." :P I never viewed either as negative or positive, just true. Every little thing I've ever done is wonderful in my dad's eyes and we're very close, and I think that does make me a daddy's girl. The fact that I'm an adult woman who is getting married doesn't change that.

But I know that's not what you meant. Having been in a sorority, believe me, I know some daddy's girls who LOVE that title. A post on how you interpret this phrase would be interesting. :)

hmmm. I even take my shoes off at work. I hate shoes. In fact, when I'm at people's houses where you ARE allowed to wear your shoes, I ask them if they mind if I take mine off!

Seeing the blog should leave some comments, I think that is a polite to blog host, and thank you for sharing!
