  1. V.E.R.Y interesting...really. I mean it.

  2. very interesting! I LOVE it! =) congratulations on 100 posts!

  3. Holy cow!!! I think I need to re-read this list, I don't think I could get it all in! But I love it! CONGRATS on the 100! Such a milestone. And I'm LOVING the new header and look - so cool!!!!

  4. I sort of love that you duct taped your pants.

  5. Thanks!! :)

    I've also duct taped a high heel that my dog ate. He only took one bite... They were black, I had black duct tape... Thus, I had a repaired pair of shoes. I'm so trashy :)

  6. I love your 100 things list...and yes, I read all of them REALLY fast.

    You should go take a look at my 100 things post. Check out my side bar.

  7. Okay - so unfair.

    I need #93. Give up the goods Lady F. A space heater with a remote? I think I just peed my pants a little. [Was that tmi because I think we are even after #72. hee.]

    Now where to I find the ONLY thing I want for Christmas. Do tell.

  8. Look no further! (and change those pants! ;)

    Mine was a Christmas gift last year... Thanks, mom! :)

  9. Morning :)To prove that I did really read yr post, you must really like the color green because you mentioned it twice #22 and #75 :)
    Great post :)

  10. No, I did not read all 100 individual points, however, I can't for the life of me figure why you add red pepper to hot chocolate, find that your body does some weird shit like hiccuping when you eat candy and burping when you yawn.
    And congrats on 100 posts!
    Oh, and now I'm craving a grilled cheese with jalapenio peppers and it's midnight, so I won't be having one :(

  11. I totally agree with #8. But I'm a brand snob on that one...I only like Hidden Valley Ranch. I even bring a bottle with me in my purse to restaurants b/c I don't like any other kind.

    And I'm so proud of you on #62. I wish I had the guts to take down Obama stuff. But with my luck, I'd get caught.


Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it's not like this, compulsive, need, to be liked. Like my need to be praised. - Michael Scott, "The Office"
