    Does anyone's pet get hiccups? Raider gets the hiccups like every day and he's hiccupping while laying on me right now.
    No, but he does have the biggest, loudest belches I've ever heard.
    Ours do get hiccups occasionally. But one of them, Bama, audibly farts like a human. He has louder farts than  most humans actually.

  • blabla89 my big dog likes to run up to me like something is a huge emergency, he then stops dead RIGHT in front of me, burps super loud, and has a shocked look on his face. Then he slowly starts to wag his tail. That's what makes me laugh so hard. 

    But last night he burped in my hair while we were cuddling on the couch and for some reason that made me laugh too.

    AND YOUR SO? FI is a Pilot!

    ANY KIDS? Nope. Probably not for another couple years, when we are back in civilization

    PETS? Nope. I'm not a pet person. And FI is allergic to life so it's just not in the cards.

    FAVORITE DRINK (boozy or not): Cheap wine? We are currently on a quest to find the best bottle of wine under 12$. 

    ANYTHING ELSE? I'm a 5 foot tall Redhead who looks like a teenager. Seriously. I'm 28 years old and get carded everytime. In a Province whose drinking age is 18. Everyone must think my FI is a cradlerobber since he's 30, and looks 30.

  • SoontobeMrsKlein we're the same age and I have the same problem! I'm 5'1" and have a soft voice, so people seriously think I'm like 19 or something. But no, I'm 28. This lady that sits near me asked my age when it was my birthday and I told her 28, and she just stared at me for a minute and then said I was lying. Um... ok.

    @maggie0829 That is really weird and cool about your sister & SIL! A new girl started at my company (years ago) and her and I were chatting and quickly became close friends. Turns out her BFF and my BFF gave birth the same day at the same hospital and both of us had been there to visit that night.

    AND YOUR SO?  Web security

    ANY KIDS?  Nope. That will be laterrrrr.

    PETS? A little dog named Peanut

    WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CHEESE? One cannot expect a Wisco girl to pick only one! Lately I've been into all manner of raw cheeses, from aged cheddar to the world's most creamy, soft-rind cow's milk triple-cream (think brie, only BETTER, yeah I said it). I love goat cheese, stinky cheese, aged cheese, soft cheese, sheep cheese. And I don't really discriminate--plain old American slices have their place (especially on burgers/grilled cheese while camping). Just keep that Cheese Whiz shit away from me. 

    FAVORITE DRINK (boozy or not): I feel similarly to above--don't make me choose! But I like beer. Especially wheat beers and Belgian-style Trappist ales. I like a really good cider (Angry Orchard doesn't count)--the drier the better, and if it's been aged in oak, a la the Cidras of northern Spain? Even better. Wine is fine, too. And spirits? Why yes! I love a good gin, and I am in love with a small-batch vodka producer that I think went out of business, sigh. (I am seeing that I really like to eat and drink. Theme of my whole life, guys.)

    ANYTHING ELSE? I really like sports. Playing them, mostly. Watching them, sometimes. Giving a shit about stats/fantasy leagues? Never.

    RELATIONSHIP STATUS: engaged (wedding in May 2015)

    WHERE ARE YOU FROM? Born and raised in Alberta.

    WHERE IS YOUR SO FROM? Same. but we grew up about a 2hr drive from each other.

    WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK? I'm an exec assistant for the CEO of a quasi-governmental regulatory body.

    AND YOUR SO? He's a broker (corporate insurance.)

    ANY KIDS? Not now, probably not ever.

    PETS? Not now, but as soon as we get a place with a yard. I want a labradoodle and a sphynx cat.

    WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CHEESE? Goat cheese. On everything, or out of the packet with a spoon.

    FAVORITE DRINK (boozy or not): I pretty much drink only water, black coffee, and Scotch, like an elderly man. Prosecco or champagne on special occasions.

    ANYTHING ELSE? I'm on TK, kind of paradoxically, because I really don't like weddings and having one was causing me so much anxiety that I needed help, lol. I'm happy to be married but I'm only doing the wedding part to please our families, it means literally nothing to me to do the wedding stuff. That's probably going to be an unpopular thing to share, but it's the truth.
