  1. Great post. What a wonderful way to get to know you better. And you don't like seafood? Blasphemy!

  2. I can't sleep naked either. But I'm shocked that you've never had apple pie! How on earth have you gone your whole life without trying it?

    Great list!

  3. Hey Mel, thanks for dropping in. I like this 100 list, i'm gonna shout you out on my 100th and do it too :)

  4. #60, I think only this year did I figure out what I wanted to be!
    #100 *chuckle*

  5. I must have my covers also. You are rack-tacular!

  6. Love the list! What do you want to go back to school for?

  7. Thanks for dropping by my blog Mel...I too have to say I am totally shocked that you have never had apple pie! Do you not like apples? But - I also cannot sleep nekkid and I desperately want to audition for the Amazing Race - I love that show!
    Melissa :-)

  8. Braja- You're very welcome and thank you for stopping by!

    Melissa- No, I love apples just not mushy hot ones. Apples are supposed to crisp. :^)

  9. Love the list! No worries - I'm just finding out what I want to be when I grow up too.

  10. Not sure how I got here, but I like your blog.
    -also never broke a bone
    -love cereal, and have to seriously limit myself or I get out of hand
    -sing better when I'm starting to get or recover from a cold.

  11. You're favorite food is Mexican and you live in So Cal - how is it possible that you have lived the last 26 years without trying guacamole? Try it! Try it now!!!

    My Grandma thinks she's a Mexican and makes the best Guacamole you have ever tasted - the absolute best!

  12. Oh my god, I think you are my daughter Sarah's (SpoonfulofSarah) twin sister. {Honey I love you} you both have alot of the same interests and likes/dislikes. Weird.
    Maybe you guys are the same age.

  14. That must have taken forever but it was all very interesting. I'm going to try the vapo rub on feet thing for my baby son. He's been coughing for about two weeks now.

  15. When we get our short selves together someday, we'll not camp and watch "It's A Wonderful Life" AND "The Godfather" not in the morning while eating chocolate & the grilled cheese sandwiches I make very well, and drinking tea (& cocktails).

    Then we'll watch football, with one eyebrow raised.

    We end the day with rollerskating, then coloring (I still have a stack from when I was a kid).

    Super fun :D

  16. Mel darlin' I couldn't wait. I'm so impatient, I know ...


  17. I am totally doing this. I did it way back, but somehow lost the list. You have inspired me to do it.

    Guacamole? Never? I am shocked!

  18. Don't say you've never broken a bone! And if you do, throw salt at the computer!

    Superstitiously yours,

  19. Wow...what a great list. It was nice getting to know you better! #61 made me laugh - men! :)

  20. 85+ pairs of shoes! Goodness, that's a lot! You have a pair of shoes for every occasion.

    I also could eat bread with every meal. YUM. Especially homemade bread right out of the oven.

  21. Great post. You're awesome! I just don't want to grow up- it's exhausting!

  22. Great list!!! I just love learning that kind of stuff!!!

  23. Are you volunteering at the San Diego 3-day? I'm a participant and my team name is "Rose Buds" I hope we can meet each other! Thanks for helping out. June Lynch

  24. Ok, I only got to #8... How have you never had guacamole?? You live in California!!
    I will make some and bring it to the rink!


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
