  1. I did read all of these. The first 52 yesterday and today I noticed you added, so I finished! Believe it sister!

  2. I drive with two feet also. But I brake with my right and accelerate with my left.

  3. Natalie: That’s a hoot, because… I had the 52 up for a little while and decided, wth, might as well make it an even 100. I think that’s the second or third time now that you’ve “caught” me in the act of changing something or other on my blog. You’re amazing.

    Hazel: LMAO ~ You made me pee my pants just a little. Which was no small “feet,” with my ass laughed off and all… (pun intended)

  4. Not so amazing…..I just have nothing better to do than blog patrol!! LOL!

  5. I read the entire list. I like things like this. In fact, I like lists like this so much that I actually have two of them on my blog. Not to mention several smaller lists of other little known facts about me.
    I like the bit about being able to cross one eye. I can make one of mine roll back into my head. It’s really freaky.

  6. M+: I’ve read yours, they’re very interesting. You’re kidding about the eye, right? Freaky fer shure!
    Can we call you One Roll at a Time??? (no, I didn’t really say that…)

  7. This is a great list and I’m glad you finished it. However, I’m saddened that you don’t like sushi/sashimi! What about Wine?

    I can match you on “The Breakfast Club” πŸ™‚

  8. Hey, K: I’m thrilled that you came over! I really tried to like the sushi and was surprised and disappointed when I didn’t. I like most things that most people don’t; snails, turtle, snake, shark, a zillion things- including brussel sprouts and liver. In fact I kept forcing myself, trying different kinds. Still, no. But wine? I loves me lots and lots of wine πŸ™‚

    Breakfast Club… what a delightful thing to have in common. What’s your favorite part?
    I’m almost as good on Benny and Joon…

  9. How can you not like the part where each of the kids defines the stereotypes of a generation? I also like the part where Bender is under Molly Ringwalds desk πŸ™‚

    No brussel sprouts or liver for this guy. Even though I’m currently hooked on Anthony Bourdains “No Reservations”, I’ve yet to develop a likeing for non-muscular related organs.

  10. It’s hard to think of 100 Things, I tried for my blog when I first started it and gave up. So I just did a “About Me, useless information” page. I am in the process of completing my 100 Things. I keep re-reading the list and will probably never publish it, since 75% are food related. The 3 people that read my blog will think I’m a 400 pound woman, confined to her bed, who has hired a “helper” to wash her ass and bring her french fries and chocolate cake, oh, and wings and a cold beer, and some chocolate chip cookies and key lime pie, oh and…

  11. Bailey: I just read your About Me. We are more alike than you thought, even! Please keep working on your 100 Things, I’d like to read it. I could easily have written more about food… Food is in my Top 5 Favorite Things in Life! Speaking from my own personal experience, you might want to get over that before you get to be my age, it catches up to you!

  12. I read those all, my head hurts. I feel ya on the sarcasm.

  13. Bu: What possessed you? Are you bored or something? I saw Brock today, I think he got a haircut. I heard someone saying he needed to pass out cigars. Did he get a puppy or something?

  14. Did we never say, white cars are… hideous.

    Anyways, although I’ve been out of the blogging loop for a while – my miraculous return has prompted me to drop by. Hope all is well, and the physical things are still perking up. Since you know more people than me, tell them about my site and let them know that they can also buy some cheap tat over on – http://www.cafepress.com/logicyellow

    I’ve forgotten those other nicknames you dawned on me, but Simba stuck.

    Simba

  15. LY: Sorry, but my white car, while it may have not been my choice of color, was a gift from someone near and very dear to me. Besides, it’s Pearl.
    While normally I would gladly pimp your site, do you not think I learned a hard lesson the last time I chose to do that? If I recall I even made the 2007 Bad Surprises List on AMS…Top Ten, no less.
    I checked out your site and it is awesome and easy to see that you put so much of your talent and hard work into it. I will visit frequently. Please understand if I don’t comment. I will add you to my blogroll if you’d like…
    Was great to hear from you, Simba. I missed you somethin’ fierce. Feel free to mail or IM me.

  16. Wow, this list was actually pretty fun to read. I never thought I would make it through it, but was intrigued enough to keep reading them one after the next. I too don’t watch TV often, but like a few shows. I thought it was funny how you said You like to cook but detest baking. LOL.

  17. Adam: Hi! Nice to see you here. There really is a difference…

  18. Interesting. I’m with you on cherry & pecan pies. Also the cooking and baking dichotomy. I couldn’t make a list of more than five things about me, and I’m already bored thinking about me.
